It was just too distracting! He’s got a pretty busy professional life and he is really passionate about his work!
This is the 8-Bit Hall of Fame in Bonita Springs, FL. The best thing that has ever come out of my hometown. This place is an institution, and a place of worship for gamers.
Almost every video game store I’ve been to in the course of my lifetime has been employed with elitist jerks. The owner is one of the most kind and humble people I’ve ever met.
I have sold games to him, as much as I have purchased them. His trade in prices are higher than anywhere else I’ve been, and his games for sale are tested, researched, and fairly priced.
If you are ever passing through SW Florida, it is something to see, and I look forward to seeing this business grow in the future.
I was more than excited to leave my hometown, but this was the only reason I wanted to stay.
My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

Thought I’d update you, I got a job I applied for, and I am now moving from south Florida to Asheville North Carolina! Things are about to change very quickly.
Matt still exists! But his zelda blog unfortunately does not. He does some awesome photography and I believe he is using tumblr more for that purpose nowadays!
