Among my many categories I am a science fiction
geek. The Lord of the Rings
is both one of my favorites in books and movies. I was a Lord of
the Rings fan before it was cool. Does this mean I was a hipster
before it was cool? I'm a hipster hipster? Strike that. I am,
however, so hip I can't see over my pelvis.
I've read so much science fiction and fantasy I sometimes can't
even recall what I've read when I pick it up. I will get through
the first chapter in a book I think is new to me and think, "Oh.
I've read it." But I read it anyway. And since there is a handy
site for that kind of thing, I will point to it here:
Non-fiction includes anything that can teach me something about
Math, Physics, Geology, Astronomy, etc. I used to check Algebra and
Calculus books out of the library and work my way through them. My
love of science and reason has often been taken for transcendental.
But since my reason grounds me, this can't be.
I am pretty diverse in my musical interests. Though I've found that
if Dean Winchester likes it, I probably do as well.
I can't think of a type of food I've tried and not liked. I am
willing to try anything within reason, food or otherwise.
For TV, I like Dr.
and I've been watching since I was a wee lad. I'm a Tom
Baker fan for life, but these new guys seem to be doing it justice.
Examples: Supernatural, True Blood, Dexter (up until that last
bit), and Archer are all good.
Adult Swim is awesome. Robot Chicken is pure genius.
All that said, my primary hobbies are reading, writing, D&D,
video games, biking, and exploring
. All of my best friends I
have met through D&D and MUDs. I've met quite a few on
. D&D and other role-playing games (mostly
been prominent in my life since I was about four, so it's been
there through all my formative stages, and I have been there
through its formative stages.
I will have to include video games in this area, too, but there are
too many to name. I've been all up on Diablo 3, lately, and I
always go back to Yuri's Revenge, eventually. Master of Orion 2 is
the only Master of Orion worth a damn. Zork was awesome. I cut my
teeth coding C on a MUD called VargonMUD (Successor to MUDDog). The
Fallout series has been a great love, from the first one to New
Vegas. All good.
