This is how it begins…


I find myself at the first major milestone in this road to…? Something, that’s for sure. I found myself struck by a compliment today. I was told today that one of my photographs reminded this person of the work of Ansel Adams.


This one.


I was humbled and honored, honestly. I mean:


That is a picture. It’s not the highest of resolutions, but you’re getting where I’m coming from. I think there might be something to this. Stick around for more.

Hello, World!

Seriously though, how many times has that reference been given?

If you’re reading this during the first year of this thing, I want to forever thank you for being with me on what I feel is going to be an astounding, incredible adventure.

My name is Roy Mercon, and I occasionally take pictures and write shit. I’ve been online for quite a while, with my main bragging right being my RoosterTeeth profile, which was started about 12 years ago. I’ve seen things come and go in a variety of different ways, but what has remained after all this time is how full of ourselves we are, and how self-promotion is the most loyal. I’m betting on consistency here. Hello, world! to my home on the Internet. I’ve been moving around a lot over the years, but I think I’ve finally found a place that suits be just fine.

This place will be the center for all things FoobaDoop. What is FoobaDoop? Stick around to find out. WE got this, don’t worry🙂

This is the initial push, hoping to get people to stick around before the real thing begins. So, if you’re reading this soon after I’ve done writing it, and aren’t someone checking out the past, I love you. Thanks for believing in me this far.
