Hello, and welcome to Chris City!  My name is Christopher Sugatan Fornesa and you are about to embark on a short trek that features my thoughts about the world around us.  This is a purely personal blog, however, I have big things planned for this entire website.  Chris City will not only be a web log where I will keep it real and into perspective, but it is also my brand and my identity.  This will be my second brand, after CftxP (which I use as my artistic pseudonym), and will focus on my commercial and political identities rather than simply the art.  The CftxP and Chris City identities (along with my actual websites) will be forever intertwined for as long as I am in existence (and hopefully beyond).

So here’s the story.  I occasionally go on domain name binges wherein I end up buying a load of domain names and so one day, while searching on Namecheap on a limb, I wondered if there were any affordable domain name extensions that would allow me to register a “chris” domain name.  After at least 10 to 20 minutes of searching, I found that chris.city was available and so of course I bought it!  But the thing is, I had no use for it, I simply bought it because I knew that one day I would – even if it wasn’t immediate.  Then on June 12, 2016, the worst mass shooting in recent American history occurred at Pulse Nightclub, a gay bar in Orlando, Florida.  In the process of mourning, anger, and sadness, I realized that I needed to speak out.  While I already had a multitude of WordPress and other blogs, I wanted to make a website and blog that was fully functional to who I am as a person.  I wanted to create a digital legacy for myself that was greater than anything that I’ve already done in the past.  What happened in Orlando shook me to the core and made me think about my own legacy.  And so now, I have this website built on this blog at the domain name of “chris.city” which I have now adopted as another extension of who I am, albeit online.

Furthermore, I hereby dedicate this website to my true ideals, to my true self, and to the rest who suffer.

With much love,

Chris Fornesa
