Only somewhat relevant, but before I discovered tallships and
gained a life I did the World of Warcraft 18 hours a day for months
on end thing, and have a total of around 350 days played on all my
characters combined. I haven't played in a long time, but at one
point it was a serious love of mine and I still have my Figureprint
on proud display in my studio. So, I'd like to think I have some
nerd cred. I also play D&D (Pathfinder) every Saturday, and
attend board game nights sporadically.
Anyways, I think this is the most boring, useless section that
OkCupid has up here so I'll try to make it interesting.
Lots of Pop Science and high fantasy. I'm
very picky about my fiction; lack of realism turns me off in
nothing flat. I own a LOT of books.
Meh. Watching them is a good excuse to
spend time with somebody. I have really, really high standards and
if a movie has shitty annoying female characters it's hard for me
to appreciate the rest of it. Again, realism is key. That said, I
think the new Star Trek reboots were AMAZING. Could watch those all
day. Same thing with V for Vendetta and a few others.
Speaking of Star Trek, I was really really
into The Original Series for a while, and Kirk, Spock and the rest
still hold a special place in my heart. Haven't seen any of the
other series, and don't feel compelled to.
I feel like I should mention I'm currently half in love with BBC's
Sherlock, and I often have those running in the background while I
do other things. I also draw them sometimes, and I dare say I'm
pretty good with my pencils!
Beyond that, I don't watch TV really at all. I don't make any
monthly payments besides internet and the only screens in my
apartment are my computer monitors. Rarely I'll torrent something
that strikes my fancy and watch all 4 seasons in a week.
Oh lawrd. The links are the best
representative of what I like:
. Dark, heavy industrial goth techno type
shit about death and anger and lust and the holocaust and all that
Trance/house with tons
Etherial, melodic new agey stuff
. Let it play till
2:45 for the full effect.
, traditional or otherwise. Love banjos and
fiddles!! Which leads into...
Traditional celtic badassery
. I know a lot of sea
shanties and old folksongs, and they're REALLY fun to sing with
crew when drunk.
Sometimes I listen to pop.
Especially dancey party
music. I like it, and I don't feel like I should have to defend
that to anyone.
That said, I listen to almost everything with the exception of
death metal and classic rock, and my speakers get near-constant
use. I even have have a pair permanently set up in my bathroom
because showering without music is unbearably boring. ;]
Spicy, and with weird ingredients or combinations. I
eat a lot of veggies, seafood, and dairy. And bacon. Always bacon.
