About the Creator

I am a longtime player of the Animal Crossing series, beginning in 2001 with the original Animal Crossing for Gamecube when I was sixteen. Though I haven't yet played New Leaf or Happy Home Designer, I still consider myself a fan of the series given my enjoyment of the installments I've played thus far. Aside from playing much of this game series, I am also a budding novelist, poet, music composer, pianist, singer, and webdesigner, and have made my home on the Web at since 2004.

Site Name and Meaning

When I was first putting together this site, I kept being reminded of the song "World" by Five for Fighting--"What kind of world do you want? Think anything! Let's start at the start, build a masterpiece..." And in the spirit of that song, I took one of the phrases from the bridge ("Tomorrow's calling") and made it the title of my site. Eventually, I went on to use other lyrics as subtitles for articles and subsections as well. I find it especially meaningful and poignant for Animal Crossing, both as a game and as a cultural phenomenon.

"World" - Five for Fighting

Got a package full of wishes,
A time machine, a magic wand,
A globe made out of gold
No instructions or commandments,
Laws of gravity,
Or indecisions to uphold

Printed on the box I see:
"A.C.M.E.'s Build-a-World-to-Be"
Take a chance,
Grab a piece,
Help me to believe it

[Chorus] What kind of world do you want?
Think anything
Let's start at the start,
Build a masterpiece
Be careful what you wish for:
History starts now...

Should there be people or peoples?
Money, funny pedestals for fools who never pay?
Raise your army, choose your steeple,
Don't be shy, the satellites can look the other way

Lose the earthquakes, keep the faults,
Fill the oceans without the salt
Let every man own his own hand--
Can you dig it, baby?


Sunlight's on the bridge
Sunlight's on the way
Tomorrow's calling
There's more to this than love...

What kind of world do you want?
What kind of world do you want?

What kind of world do you want?
Think anything
Let's start at the start,
Build a masterpiece...

History starts now
Starts now...

Be careful what you wish for...
Start now
