If you're interested in my work feel free to visit my DeviantArt (thecrimsonemo.deviantart.com) or YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/samthompsonX)
I'm more active on those two sites and occasionally post new artwork, photography, short stories, blogs and videos.

Currently I'm working on several large projects:

Sonic Adventure Minecraft

Shenmue Minecraft

Minecraft World

SegaSonic ArcadeCraft

Sonic 1 Minecraft

Animal Crossing Minecraft

Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga

Katherine and Hippoloid

Some of these projects I've been working on tirelessly for years now and won't be finished anytime soon, but there are early build beta's of the projects you can download for free from my DeviantArt page regardless.

But anyway, thank you for reading this and if you're interested, here are some other websites you can find me on.

I don't use Newgrounds as much as I used to anymore, I still have plans to come back in the future and become a really great flash animator but for now I'm focusing more time on my Deviantart and Myspace page. you can still catch me sometimes in the video game forums but apart from that I'll hardly be around.
Take Care!

Sorry Im not on Newgrounds as much anymore



(Sorry I haven't gotten around to spell checking this yet, It was 5am when I wrote this.)
-Note: If you don't like Sonic then DON'T BOTHER READING THIS, You'll only be wasting your own time!-

My friend on deviantart recently brought this article to my attention sega-impossible-to-please-all-sonic-fa ns-with-one-sonic-game
It's an interview with Sega of America's vice president, discussing the future of sonic games and how they intend to deal with all their audiences.

While I admit, im finally glad they acknowledge theres a problem I really don't like Sega's attitude towards their audience.
I'm especially sickened by their plans to completely ignore us loyal dedicated fans now entirely in favour of the new generation (the 4kids generation).
I really don't know how anyone can be ok with this but this article only confirms my fears that Sega of America's arrogant attitude towards the franchise delivers them a deaf ear from the fact most of their audience all hate the new Sonic games and are losing interest by the minute.
in this prticular quote:
"I'd argue that we very much achieved that with products like Sonic Heroes on PS2, and I think we did that with Mario and Sonic 1 on Wii and DS. I think we did it some ways with Sonic and the Secret Rings on Wii."
This shows that dispite their unpopularity amongst fans, Sega only pays attention to the sales, not the sorrows.

I will say that this article is accurate in it's main point, and I myself have been saying this for years "It's impossible to appeal to every single sonic fan as every individual one has their own opinion in what makes a sonic game great." And yes, there is just no way of pleasing them all and every sonic game they make, people will always find something to complain about, but it seems to me now they're just giving up on the 'older audience' to focus all their attention solely on the new audience.
It's like those banking commercials where they only advertise the best deals to attract new customers and to hell with whoever the fucks been loyal to us from the begining of the company! We wanna make big bucks and thats all! It almost very makes me want to drop out and leave Sonic for good, face it, it's never gonna get any better, they even thought sonic 2006 sold well!?

I must admit he did go on near the end of the journal to meantion that he would appeal to the dedicated fans "Hayes and the rest of Sega want to make the old-time Sonic fans happy. They just need those fans to not expect their Sonic in every Sonic game."

But as I read on it seems to me that they plan on making NEW sonic games to appeal to the new generation and just simply rebrand old ports onto newer consoles to appeal to the nostagic fans, I'm really untrusting of this Hayes person, it really makes me wonder just what kind of people are running sega here.

Yeah they are right, you can't appeal to every single sonic fan all in one game as everyone has their own unique views on what makes a sonic game perfect but this article really doesn't comfort my fears of sonics demise, rather confirms it... =(

So in a nutshell folks? Don't expect your amazingly perfect new Sonic Adventure game or lush three dimentional rebrand of the old classics, do expect more Sonic and Mario olympic crossovers, new untested gimmicks and heaps more new Sonic characters to make those gimmicks all the worthwile, and also to appeal to the loyal dedicated sonic fan, tons more Sega Genesis ports on every new console just to show that they're thinking about your needs too! :) How lucky we all are to have followed Sonic this long down the road, eh?

Is it really the end of Sonic or a new beginning



where I was THE real Spider-man, and by day Peter Parker, a foreign exchange student from England living in New York, only I had to constantly save the city from crime, and it was proving to be so stressful constantly battling criminals, even Peter Parker doesn't get any respect, how he puts up with the stress I'll never know!

But my Nan (who was Aunt May) wanted to Move back to England and I wanted to go with her, only even with both all our money combined, the travel salesman would only arrange for us to move to Wales, which was a huge disappointment as we couldn't afford to go back to Devon, but this was the cloest we could get to leaving New York and going back to England, so we both agreed this would be a temperary move and we would eventually move back to Devon.
Man I couldn't wait to see the back of this place but I had one last errand to run before I was granted a leave, running across town stopping this chinese gang from burning down this apartment building just to get the chance to meet me, I was so exhausted from being the superhero all the time and was ready to throw in my towel but as this was one last errand I was determined to see it though and went to the burning building to fight this gang of chinese pirates, except I was so tired I could only just manage to defeat them, despite them being complete amateurs, and then the leader came out dressed in American Apparel stockings and a tattered tank top and pulled a shotgun to my head! ...*there was a long pause* then Bang! Turns out it was just a novelty camera, apparently he was just a big crazed Spider-man fan and staged this fight as a chance to meet me, I thought fuck this and just left!

Only problem was I was missing my train to the airport and had to rush to the station as fast I can, I was so exhasted but the train had just left so I had to make sure no one was looking before I (web zipped) after it, trailing behind until I could get on at the next stop to meet Aunt May with the luggage. While there, I opened up to her and confessed my identity as Spider-man, she laughed at me at first but when I showed her a web trick she soon pieced everything together, why I was always late everywhere, not being around for Uncle Ben, saving her from Otto Octavius, then we had an emotional heart to heart.

The only thing was, in my absence, The Venom started to terrorise New york, spray painting entire buildings black, harassing girls in the streets, molesting these 'french circus doll women' who were camping out in the park, and just doing everything he can to get my attention in order to challenge me to a showdown, not realising I had just left New york for Good!
I really wasn't looking forward to moving to Wales, I don't really get their accents and I'm not a countryside person, I just wouldn't fit in and personally it felt like I was moving in the opposite direction in life, but it was the cloest thing I could get to England and both me and Aunt May were sick of the hectic life of New York so it was Bon Voyage, unfortunatly as soon as I got on the plane this police officer raced after me to give the air hostess an envelope adressed to me, it was a letter from the chief inspector telling me The Venom was terrorising New York and wanted to challenge me to a showdown!

Man I was so sick of all this superhero stuff and he was the Last person I wanted to see right now, I mean the city's always gonna need protecting right, and if it's not from Venom it'll only be from someone else! What should I do? Get off the plane and leave Aunt May to fly alone, despite me putting all my money into this very journey or ignore the city's plea for help and go live an ordinary student life in Wales?

Updates for 2009

Updated

I've now given up any hope of landing a decent job this year after painful months of searching so This week Im travelling back to Birmingham and am gonna just whore myself out to any job I can get, Boots, Tescos, Argos, whatever.
The UK's not like America, education means nothing to the working world, you just gotta land a job wherever you can get it, It's all first come first serve in this country and I'm learning that the hard way. (all those years wasted in College all for nothing...)
Whatever, I don't really care that much what I do, as long as I can keep designing games and animations in my spare time I'm happy anywhere. Hopefully In the future I wanna really build up an impressive portfolio of successful flash games and animations and take online career courses whch would open doors and land me roles with bigger, successful companies. I mean who wants to work in retail all their life huh? The worst thing about any job is dealing with customers who just know they can walk all over you! >=/
But whatever I'm past that now, I'm still uptating My Flash Projects list every month and adding new planned projects to the list all the time, I really can't tell what I'll bring to Newgrounds first because whenever I'm working though a project, I get sidetracked and come up with a new one entirely!
I'm hoping though, my MUSEUM OF SONIC THE HEDGEHOG (or THE SONIC MUSEUM) will be my first small project to be completed, which is an entire interactive museum of Sonic's history from 1990-2008 day, containing trailers and regional exclusive commercials as well, but I'm still working hard on my more major titles, Sonic Gotham Racing (which is an entire recreation of Project Gotham Racing 2-4), Halo: Live and Reloaded (which is an entire Conker remake of the Halo trilogy) and Mario Crashers (A Mario remake of NG's very own Castle Crashers).
Again, these are all side projects for me which will all eventually build up towards my main gaming franchise, Katherine & Hippoloid, which I hope one day to gain the licensing to make for consoles.
Who know's where the future will take us?

(Also I forgot to mention, I am now working on two other major projects as well, An entire recreation of Sonic Adventure 2 where the roles of the Heroes and Villains are reversed, meaning Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy are the villains and Shadow, Rouge, Dr. Eggman and Omega are the heroes and my more promising project, An entire recreation of Sonic Heroes only portraid through the roles of the cast of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Heroes! I'll reveal the entire cast on my flash projects list, not here)

Updates for 2009


I've decided to try and move back to Exeter

2008-12-31 14:52:11 by AshtonNextGen
Updated

I've had enough of Birmingham, its doing nothing for me, It's hard to find work without being harrassed by perverts, mugged by homeless, conned or threatened by corrupt train ticket inspectors, this just isn't gonna work out the way I'd hoped.
So I wanna try and move down to Exeter instead, my main gaming franchise which I hope to bring to Newgrounds somwhere in the late future, Katherine & Hippoloid is set in Exeter so it would be a really good experience for me living there.
Who knows where life will take you or what it will bring, all we can hope for in 2009 is the best so Happy New Year's eve, lets hope the new year will be even better than the one just passing!

I've decided to try and move back to Exeter

Working on a collab RPG - Eternal Eclipse

2008-11-24 06:50:38 by AshtonNextGen
Updated

I'm now moving my flash projects list to my own blogspace now as Im sure you'll all getting sick of seeing it, I'll post the link up here later.
But now I've teamed up with Andrew Ponton (Eternal Magick) to bring you an epic new RPG action adventure, called Eternal Eclipse, and its going to be huge!
It's about a young boy called Andrew and his cousin Bren who's home village of Tirato is wiped out by dark forces of the mysterious Shadow Creatures commanded by the dark prince known only as Black Omen, He's trying to recover the legendary 'Pollen of Damnation' which is foretold to contain the very powerful essence that could awaken ones true inner darkness or inner light.
Now its up to Andrew and his new friends to join together on a quest to prevent Black Omen and his army of Shadow Creatures from bringing the entire world into everlasting darkness!

(I'll post up pictures here when they're ready, the main cast and plotline belong to Andrew but the shadow creatures and game script are mine! I'll also be making a promotional poster soon!) =)

Working on a collab RPG - Eternal Eclipse


Updated List - All my future flash projects for Newgrounds

2008-09-05 00:16:13 by AshtonNextGen
Updated

Since most of my posts are beginning to become unrelated to my purpose on NG I've decided that from now on I'm gonna base all of my future posts on news and info relating to the progress with my own personal flash projects, starting with the new updated list of every single flash I plan to create for newgrounds!
This should at least give you a clear vision of whats to be expected from me in the future when I become more confident with Flash.
(you should note that these arn't exactly in any particular order and I may attempt some futher down the list before others, also some of these are just working titles and may not actually see the light of day.)
- I'll constantly update whenever more projects arise, and they will! -

1. Egg-Pawn attacks - My first test project, was originally just an animation test but became a short fun game instead. =)
-
2. Ryan Drummond Tribute - A small voice over tribute made bidding Ryan Drummond best of luck in the future, unfortunatly the original file got corrupted while adding the finishing touches so this never got completed.
-
3. Viva Pinata counter - Just a small flash application for my myspace page, it tells you the current time and date and is updated with a new message every now and again.
-
4. BTEC Crisis - A huge Side scrolling beat-em-up adventure game set in Gloucester City, 4 different video game dictators (M. Bison, Dr. Eggman, Psycrow and Untitled - my character) have all invaded the real world and have brought their armies with them, coincidently all planning to take over Gloucestershire at the very same time, you play a college student who on his way to College in the morning gets caught up in this chaos and has to fight to claim back the town!
-
5. Sonic Flash - Inspired by Sonic CD and Sonic Advance, this is a huge sonic platform game where you get to choose from almost any character from the franchise you can think of as they travel across new worlds in a quest to stop Dr. Eggmans newest diabolical plot. The games stages are completely designed by me from the ground up and as well as tons of familiar faces, old and new making a cameo appearance, this game also contains a number of fun mini games as well. =)
-
6. Sonic Mellow Islands - Newgrounds first fully 3D free roaming experience! Inspired by Sonic Jam's, Sonic World stage, I wanted to create my very own 3D enviroment that you can explore in your own free will, there are no missions here, or battles to be fought, just kick back and relax or take part in the many fun challanges set around the island! What makes this game so unique is that it also contains a fully featured day to night cycle so as you play, day becomes night, which eventually turns back to dusk. A true experience never been seen before on Newgrounds.
(I should also point out that it was originally going to be named Sonic Techno islands but I decided to create a more mellow enviroment for a change, after all even Sonic deserves a break every now and again!)
-
7. Sonic Mellow Islands 2 - The sequal to Sonic Mellow Islands, this will be a lot bigger and better in every single way as instead of a small sonic themes island, you get to explore and entire functioning city, very similar to Station Square called Gigapolis Station, from there you can explore 3 entire fully next gen 3 Dimentional stages, Fluster Peak Valley, Mitac Marble Mountain and Isle Florifornia Bay.
You won't believe anything this eye gougingly good is even capible in Flash! A constant Visual treat to all Newgrounders!
-
8. Sonic Mellow Islands 3: Dobuita - Improving ever more from the sequal, this time Sonic gets to explore the entire functioning city of Yokosuka, based from the epic Sega Dreamcast roleplaying game Shenmue, I gave up my Art GCSE's just so I could spend time fully recreating and redesigning the map layout. This isn't just a video game anymore, ...this is another world!
-
9. Sonic Mellow Islands 4: Exmouth - The final and most expanded ever version of Sonic Mellow Islands, only now this time instead of recreating a fictional city, I've fully remapped out the real location of Exmouth, the entire town, fully explorable though the eyes of Sonic the hedgehog. If you wasn't impressed before you will be now, as unlike the previous installments not only does this version include real time weather effects on a day to night cycle basis but also this town is entirely populated by its inhabitants, making this world as authentically real as ever possible in any flash game. We're now past creating another world in Flash, this is the cloest thing you'll ever get to finding the Real World infront of your very eyes!
-
10. Jane Oakley's: Mini Racers - Inspired by South Park Rally, this is a hilarious and wacky 3D kart racing game starring my own cast of funny characters I invented at school, based on my own experiences. Jane Oakley's Mini Racers lets you chose from a huge cast of wacky characters as you race from a number of different or familiar locations from around the world in battle for the Gold Trophy! "Ever' Thin' From China!" - (Quote by Jane Oakley herself)
-
11. Jane Oakley's: Martian Madness - A spoof platform game starring both everyones two favorite middle age Chinese ladies, Jane Oakley and Guixang Harris. Little Martian invaders have landed on earth and its up to Jane and Guixang to send them back! Using both their unique and wacky abilities, you get to travel from a number of different stages set all over the world and must battle the martians in their wacky discuises! =P
-
12. Street Gang Survival - Inspired by the violent Isometric arcade rollerball game, SegaSonic Arcade, you get to play as 4 teenage petty thugs who gets dumped on an uncharted tropical island by the Military because local prison cells have become so ridiculously overcrowded in a world corrupted by crime.
Little did the Military actually know, is that this island is actually Untitled's secret, highly booby trapped base of operations and as these four boys are about to find out, he doesn't enjoy entertaining visitors one bit! As you progress from stage to stage, it is your job to keep your character alive at all costs while you must avoid deadly traps, outrun giant boulders, tidal waves or Hurricanes! It should also be noted this game can be played with up to 4 people simultaniously.
-
13. Eggman's Shooting Range - This is set to be the world most hilarious target range shooting game, staged in the Final Egg shooting gallery from Sonic Adventure, Dr. Eggman has decided his E-100 series robots are in need of target practice. As one of these robots it is your job to shoot down all as many target dolls as you can in a competition to see who can gain the highest score and gain the Doctor's respect, ...the only twist is Eggmans completely lost all sence of his mind and is going absolutely bonkers in the background, dressing up in ravishing number of bizzare costumes, singing familier TV show comercial tunes or performing rememberable sketches, you have to do your best to not get distracted by Eggmans taunts and shoot the moving targets! If you hit Eggman even once in his subconcious state your out of the game. But surely just to hear him scream at the bullet wound enough is worth the admission! XD This game can be played by up to 4 players.
-
14. Eggman's Shooting Range 2 - The sequal to Eggman's Shooting Range is 3x Bigger than before and 10x funnier! From now, you get to choose from a number of Eggman's different robots, not just limited from the E-series cast, and you get to choose from 3 different themed stages, completing each stage on each difficulty will unlock hidden playable characters, stages and even hilarious secret animated shorts such as Dr. 'Robotnik's Mother' forcing him to marry her or Sonic and Eggman's private imtimate moment, again interruted by his psyco mother! You wont see anything so outragious like this before and to ensure of that, I spent 2 years alone on the obsene amount of material! Guarenteed to have you collapsing on the floor with laughter everytime! =P

(The hidden stage I shall also keep secret for now - It's fun to have secrets.) =)
Until I type up a full game description what I will release about the game is there will be confirmed Arcade and Championship game modes, each city will have 3 areas to explore, each area with a unique time of day and weather setting. There will be hundreds of unique pedestrians in the game to interact with, There is a full in-game jukebox I have created but if this dramatically increases the game's file size and loading speed I will remove it for Newgrounds and keep a uniqe copy of the game with the added jukebox to myself.
There will be no Kudos earning system up to this point in time as this will be a side-scrolling racing game, but to make up for it there will be plenty of unlockables and hidden extras such as a free-roaming mode and character bio's.
In arcade mode each character will have 5 unique challanges to complete, unlocking more characters will unlock more challanges to complete.
Championship mode will be made up of 4 seasons, each season having 4 championshop cups and 1 major tournament, each championship will be set in one unique city and contain 3-6 races, dependind on the set difficulty. There will also be a new Character Challenge mode where you can compete with certain A.I. characters one on one to unlock them as fully playable in the game.
Also included will be a customizable time attack mode, custom match street races and eliminator and an uncomfirmed Multiplayer mode for two people to go head to head.
(An online game mode hasn't been established as of now but in the future it may become possible.)

More working titles that might never see the light of day

Mecha Madness (?) - This was going to be the practice game I build as a warm up before sonic flash but as I lost the original FLA. file, it seems pointless now? But basically Metal Sonic is on a rampage, travelling across 5 sonic themed stages in an effort to destory all other Eggman's Mech's to prove he is the stongest! You can destory the environment and slaughter helpless animals for additional points as well as fire powerful laser energy from your stomach compartment.
-
Greggs hacksaw (working title) (?) - Similar to Mecha Madness, I was inspired to give an anti-platformer slash and hack another try. Gregg the Grim Reaper (conkers BFD) is fed up with people trying to cheat death with the magic of catfish so he decided to grab his coat and sickle and slaughter every single catfish that stands in his way! Not that this is a bad idea concept for a flash game, I'm just far too occupied with superiour projects so I might end up discarding this project, though to be honest, this game was destined to be overshallowed by Jane Oakleys: Martian Madness anyway as that game was established from this concept!
-
Dead Rising Zombies (working title) (?) - I've always been inspired to make a top down dungeons and dragons themed tile based game and I thought involving dead Rising would be a great start, but the idea later span into Saints Row: Mob rule so I don't know if I will attempt this game?
-
Sonic Vs Reptile (check old notes that pass back from 2004)
-
Sonic adventure 3 (check old notes that pass back from 2004)
-
South park game
-
Kingdom hearts Racing
-
Ratchet and clank racing game
-
Conker remake of The Matrix: Path of Neo? I dunno may never happen, I just want something to go with my Conker Halo trilogy remake!)
-
AMV of sonic and knuckles with maybe will smith: getting jiggy with it? or amv of sonic 1 in sonic CD amv style?

maybe remake the alladin return of jafar music video: your only second rate with homer simpson as genie, bart as abu and mr burns as jafar

dont know if Ill do this one or not but remake the goodness gracious me club nevada video starring mario and luigi?

GTA4 Short Story: Nico and the Old Jewish Man

2008-08-29 14:27:23 by AshtonNextGen
Updated

This is just a little short story I came up with when I was sitting next to an old jewish man drinking coffee in soldiers plaza all night waiting for the day to come.

Old man - Oy, its nice isn't it?

Nico - Huh?

Old man - I'm talking about the articulture of this town, take that monument over there, it sure makes you appreatiate the little things doesn't it?

Nico - I wouldn't know...?

Old man - Oy, thats the problem with you kids today, always rushing around, causing trouble. Sometimes you need to just sit back and enjoy the little things, ...take time to appreciate what you have!

Nico - ...Hey old man, I've been watching you drinking out of that coffee cup for over an hour now, haven't you had enough yet?

Old man - Oy, don't worry yourself about me, I'm just a simple old man with simple values in life, it's what we do in our time thats important.

Nico - Yeah? And what might that be?...

Old man - To carry out our purpose. ...(points towards the lit up building behind them) you see those buildings out there? To think that so many years ago people slaved over the construction of those buildings, just so we today could live in a better, cleaner tomorrow.

Nico - ...But their just buildings, what makes them so special here that they should be set apart from the buildings in any other city?

Old man - Ey', thats a good point. It was the attention to detail I was remarking on, but your a bright young one I can tell.

Nico - And what about you? ...What is your so-called purpose in life?

Old man - Me? ...I'm just an observer in this town, (points to the people walking in the street) just take a look for yourself, (points to busy woman yakking gossip on her cell phone, to a homeless beggar asking passer-by's for spare change) You see those people? They may not seem so important to you, but they all have their own unique purpose to carry out, Some of us have important purpose in life (points to a police officer drinking coffee) ...and some of us do not! (points to a tourist taking photographs of the monument.) The important thing is that we're all here, doing whatever our purpose is meant to be?...

Nico - And you still haven't told me Your purpose yet...!

Old man - *Chuckle* Me? ...My purpose is to sit here, at night, every night, ...drinking coffee. ...Just watching the world go by. (Holds his coffee cup out which appears to be attached to his hand) ...Look this coffee, its not even real, *chuckles some more* theres not even any coffee in it!

Nico - ...Right? ...I'm going to be heading off now...

Old man - You want to know the answer to your question right? Its because we have purpose in this world that we do the things we take for granted. For instance, just the other day I saw a guy get mugged at knifepoint in the street. He had no reason to get mugged, the crook would of had no use for the spare cash, why it wouldnt even matter if the other guy got killed! Nature takes its course and we're all back doing what we're meant to do.

Nico - ...*Pauses* ...You've lost me entirely?

Old man - Can I ask? ...Why do you do the things you do? why do you subject yourself from your main character role, so you can go climb walls, kill hookers, or shoot pigeons in alleyways, regardless if people are looking or not?

Nico - I do not know, ...I do not think about these things, I just do them.

Old man - ...And why are you standing here now, talking to an old man, when you could be out, earning cash, fighting crime lords, or doing so called 'street racing' that I hear so much about these days?

Nico - I guess I just chose right now not to do these things, I like that I have the option not to...

Old man - Oy, exactly what I'm talking about, Its in your role that you take for granted, unlike us you have the option to decide what you want to do, as for us... we just do what small choices we're given in life.

Nico - Interactment! Artificial Intelligence! ...Non Playable Characters! 'Life is a video game', is THAT what you are trying to tell me?

Old man - Precisely! Oy, and I'm just greatful to be involved, ...no matter now big or small the role is, that was the point I was trying to make...

Nico - So what you're saying is... if something bad happens to you, if you get mugged or run over, ...that doesn't bother you any?

Old man - Heh, ...you'd think it would? But thats only what we're told to think, ...how we're told to act and interact. If I'd die I'd just come back the next day, maybe even within the hour or so?...

Nico - Hmm... (pasues for a moment then sits down on the bench next to the old man) It must be a pretty hard life, not being able to have any control over appearance or your personality, ...I can imagine how fustrating you must feel,... brought into this world to live like a puppet!

Old man - Heh-heh, ...if that is what you call it? ...Maybe I am being told to think this way, to optimistically drink coffee all day and sit on this bench? ...but what I do know is, I accepted this role, and I'm happy for it! ...It's better, to exist with a minor purpose in life, than to not exist with one at all...

-Nico's phone rings-

Roman - Hey Cousin? You want to go grab something to eat?

Nico - Sure Cousin, I will pick you up within' the hour.

-Nico hangs up-

Old man - I can see you've already chosen your next purpose...

Nico - ...Even though I have the option to decline?

Old man - ...Even though your health is full, ...you can't gain any nurishment from the food you eat, yet you do it anyway, right?

Nico - Hmm, ...will I ever see you again old man?

Old man - Sure, I'll be here, I'll always be here, but only the question is, how do you know it will be the same old Jewish guy, or maybe perhaps an identical clone with absolutely no memory of this conversation taking my place? who can tell?

-Nico pauses for a moment, smirks to himself then begins to depart to meet Roman-

Old man - I'll see you around, ...even if I'm not the same person, ...I'll always be here, ...drinking coffee, ...watching the busy world go by.

-As Nico drives off and begins to decend from the area, the old man takes one last sip of his coffee as the sun rises and the world wizzes past him. He then fades away into nothing and in his place lies a young business man reading a newspaper, the homeless guy walking the street, begging for spare change is replaced with a smirky teen jock on his cell phone, and the prostitute harrasing passing traffic is replaced with a feminate college student taking a breather from her studies, and thus the circle of life continues...
