Send sparx to New Zealand!

Hey America, I know you're tired of having this sparx guy around all the time, so I'm gonna make you a deal: help me pay for the flight to New Zealand, and I'll get out of your hair for awhile.

The flight is expensive. I've been quoted prices of between $1900 and $2500 for round-trip (yes, I'm going to come back), which is a bit more than I can afford at the moment. So.. if you want to help out, just click the Paypal "Donate" link at the very top of the right side-bar thingy (or at the bottom of this post). I'm aiming for $3000, to cover the cost of the flight and some spending money for during the trip.

I figure it's a good investment. It might even generate an incredible story, especially if I manage to do something ridiculous and get exiled from New Zealand (I'd love to see what sort of Passport stamp they use for THAT).

EDIT: Here's a chart that will be updated as I get closer to my goal. I've "donated" $250 to myself for the time being. I'll add more to the pot myself as I can.

Did You Know: You Can Follow sparx On Twitter?!

That's right! If you can't get enough here on, you can follow me on twitter.

Here's what you'll receive if you do:

  • Random thoughts and ideas that don't warrant (in my opinion) a blog post
  • Half conversations that I have with other twitterers
  • An easier way to comment on anything that I say, and carry on a conversation
  • and more!

It's incredibly easy to follow me on twitter, just head to and click "Follow". If you're not already signed up for twitter, I recommend signing up and giving it a try.

I normally tweet 1-10/day (less often the last few days), so following me won't overwhelm you.. shouldn't overwhelm you.. may cause indigestion.
