Jorhlok Profile February 2012: First Post on this Blog

Right. Here I am! I am Jorh of the Nation of Jorh, otherwise known as the incomparable Joshua Michael Brown. This blog will contain basically anything I want to make public. It might be downloadable content, physical projects, information, or just plain opinion.

I do many things, depending on who you compare me to. Wait, wait, wait… bad grammar. I do many things, depending on whom I am compared.
