A new site means a new inaugural post! Hello, my name is Justin Sturm. If you’ve ever met me in person, you probably have already formed an opinion one way or another as to whether I’m the sort you’d enjoy hearing more about or not. For those that haven’t had the pleasure of my acquaintance, I’m a computer program who also happens to play a lot of video games, aspires to publish a book, and sleeps in the woods when the hot Florida weather permits it.
This isn’t the first incarnation of this website. Honestly I’m not even sure if its the third or fourth by now. Originally Exsturminator.com was a scheme to get a couple of college kids into E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo), a scheme which promptly failed when we realized the greatest limitation to travelling to California was not our credentials but our budgets. The site lasted a few years beyond that however, and I found I enjoyed writing about video games and gaming related news. Eventually a real job robbed me of the spare time that I’d considered my birthright as a student, and the site fell by the wayside.
Seeing as I still own the domain and have things to talk about, I thought I’d resurrect it now that I’m getting back into blogging. This time though I won’t just be discussing video games. Life is far too complex and nuanced to focus on just that single past time, and going forward, I’ll be treating this space as something of a pressure valve. My head tends to fill up, and my wife and friends get sick of hearing about some subjects, so when the thoughts start to overflow, I’ll let them pour on the pages here.
If you stop by and find something you like, let me know. I’m not the most social person by nature, but I’m friendly and polite and I like to hear new ideas. Leave a comment, drop me a line, and thank you for taking the time to hear what I have to say.
