About Me

Hello and welcome to my user-page! My username comes from Stax Records (if you're wondering) and my real name is James. I have lived in Hamden, Connecticut, New Haven, Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut, Hartford, Connecticut, and Wallingford, Connecticut. Stop me if you see a pattern. I joined Wikipedia as a senior at Hopkins School and became an admin in early June 2006. I have a variety of interests including baseball, sabermetrics, bluegrass music, and port wine. I graduated with a BA in Political Science from the University of Connecticut in 2010 and I earned a JD from University of Connecticut School of Law in 2013. I am a member of the Connecticut state, U.S. District of Connecticut, and 2nd Circuit bar associations.

I try to remain an active Wikipedian, though sometimes the pressures of the real world make that less likely. Given my editing tendancies I would consider myself a WikiOgre, though I've collected quite a healthy edit count. Somebody even called me a champion once.

Please check out my Photo Gallery!



Picture of the day
Bacchus and Ariadne

Bacchus and Ariadne is an oil painting on canvas completed by Titian between 1522 and 1523. One of a cycle of paintings on mythological subjects produced for Alfonso d'Este, the Duke of Ferrara, it depicts the god Bacchus falling in love with Ariadne after she has been deserted by her lover Theseus. Behind Bacchus is a procession of revelers in a chariot drawn by two cheetahs. The painting now hangs in the National Gallery in London.
