This section makes me feel dull, sometimes.
I had favourite fictional works years ago. Aside from the Redwall
series, I can't really remember the rest. There were lots of
dinosaurs. Most of my reading is nonfiction these days. Mostly
machines, math, and mechanisms. Or the news. I like news.
Blues Brothers is my favourite movie. Dry humour, a record amount
of car wrecks, catchy music, and Carrie Fisher with a flamethrower?
Hell yeah. Of the movies I own, only five are not B-Movies, and
three of the five are extended edition versions of LotR. And all
the B-movies are either classic sci-fi, martial arts movies you've
never heard of, or spaghetti westerns.
Everyone assumes I watch anime, but it's not really my thing.
I don't watch much tv. Many of my friends call me "Lexx", partially
due to it being my favourite show, but mostly because "Alex" is too
common a name. Like movies, I'll watch anything twice, and let you
know if I dislike it. I could add that I like Game of Thrones, but
feel like that's along the lines of telling you I have two
Not going to mention specific groups, but music-wise, I prefer
symphonic, progressive, or power metal, and classical music. I love
how strings sound warm and graceful while the guitars make it sound
like it's ripping, I love how technical alot of it is, and I love
the full sound it usually has. I'm also content with other metal
flavours, most forms of rock, jazz, and military band music. I'm
really not picky in terms of music. Very little actually bothers
me, and I'll listen to anything twice.
The most-played song in my itunes is the soundtrack version of
"I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Disney's Mulan. Don't make me
flex at you.
I'm a typical 25 year old guy in terms of food. I'll eat almost
anything. If I'm cooking or choosing a place, I have a preference
for indian or thai food. I do eat meat, but I'm honestly not all
that attached to it. I'm happy to pretend I'm a vegetarian in your
presence if you're interesting to me. It's cheaper and the cooking
is easier, anyway. I think sushi is nice, but just "nice".
Socially, that means I think it's disgustingly overrated. Pho
tastes better and is equally pretentious.
I really like pho. I mispronounce it on purpose so I can troll
people pretentious enough to correct me.
If movies and shows gets a spot in here, then in my case video
games probably should. I don't game as much as I used to, but I'd
consider it "up there" in terms of my entertainment sources. Here's
a boring list of stuff I've played over the past few months placed
roughly by present interest.
- EVE Online - Probably quitting/break soon.
- Faster Than Light
- Kerbal Space Program - Because making rockets in real life is
- Sins of a Solar Empire - Usually played with British people I'm
on teamspeak with. Hilarity ensues.
- Anno 2070
- Viscera Cleanup Detail - Same as sins. Also, it's a space-janitor
- Prison Architect
- Starbound - ie. Space Terraria
