Crazy E3 Pictures
Even though the man in charge of Sega's community section (the same place which recently interviewed Yuji Uekawa) wasn't able to attend E3, he still managed to appear in these Sonic related pictures:

Yeah, only the second one from the right is even close to attractive. Damn, I'd need a few beers before I got comfy at that party, and I don't even like beer.

I don't know, man. I think if I stayed focused on the SEGA logo, I could get quite "comfy" with the second one from the left.

And, hey . . . I used to have that exact classic style Sonic shirt when I was younger. I liked the art on the front of that one a lot. It's hard to make out there, but it's a picture of Sonic yanking Tails by the arm and leaping outwards. Does anyone know where the image was originally used? Something makes me think Sonic 2 for Game Gear, but that doesn't seem right.

Eh... Not yet, actually. This CD won't hit store shelves until next month; 06.23.04 to be exact.
Anyway, bein' a really big fan of the music from PSO, I can hardly wait for this CD to be released. I'm especially lookin' forward to hearin' the full versions of Yuri Hiranuma's arrangement of "IDOLA" have the immortal feather and Nobuyoshi Sano's Jungle.

The image was going to be used for Sonic Chaos (Sonic & Tails) but it got canned.

The original soundtrack of EpI&II is long since out, so I guess that's actually an arrangement album? That's pretty swell, I need to pick that up, too.

Damn, dude... I don't know... If I were you, I'd take steps to make sure I didn't remember anything about it the next day.

Additionally, I actually still have that T-shirt sitting around in a drawer somewhere.

God, men. All of those women have redeeming physical features... er, except that scaring looking one on the left... and I'm sure their personalities more than make up for any glaring physical flaws. Sheesh.

Is that what ugly girls tell themselves?

Is it possible that's actually a man's face photoshopped into the image? The skin tones between her face and body don't seem to match.

Yeah, I think it's that guy from the other pictures, but he fits right into that crop of ass-ugly women.

The blond second from the left looks like a girl I go to school and used to work with. Everyone thinks she's hot but her face is, like... Jesus, and God almighty but she's dumb.

Okamura looks like this girl in my Math class, right down to that mark on her right cheek. Not that she's all that attractive or anything but, you know, it's freaky.

Sort of like when you look at a car and it reminds you of someone's face. Has that ever happened to you?
