some of the references in "modelland 4":
(please don't be offended if you know these already. not everybody knows every reference.)

level 17 ethan: an established authority in games and RPG analysis/reviews/studies. RPGs (Role Playing Games), and Dungeons & Dragons in particular, had an incommensurable role in the history of gaming in general, as well as the crossovers between games and hollywood and television. one fundamental aspect of RPGs (though i myself don't know that much about them) is that more so than "games" or at least as much as "games" they are a COLLECTIVE, INTERACTIVE, CONTINUING form of NARRATIVE, in which people/players together invent characters and stories.
"flower song and bleedin sun": reference to a for-now not famous RPG. appareently the author used a book that i wrote and drew ("Azteca: The Story of a Jaguar Warrior") for substantial inspiration. (my "lega"l name, btw, is "andrea gaudiano," though i plan to change that officially. that's the name on the cover of the book).apparently the author has been wanting to connect with me but unable to find me (i don't normally use my legal name.) i'd love to contact him in the future, but not yet.
