I also love the sound of plastic cracking against trees on a warm summers evening. The only thing better is the jangle of the chains just before the disc drops into the basket or the way the disc dances in the breeze just before it turns on its side and plummets to the ground. I’m willing to play disc golf anytime. My favorite course is peninsula or Ace Run as I believe “they” are calling it now.
I’m a collector of books and vinyl albums. Second hand stores are wonderful sifting through hundreds of albums just to stumble across The Kinks Greatest Hits or Allman Brothers at Fillmore East. As for my book collection it grows faster than I can read them and I’m constantly running out of space on my bookshelves. None of this has hindered my compulsion to compile books in an effort to rival the nearest library.
As a child my younger brother and I dreamt of the day when a major studio would swoop in and create a blockbuster motion picture from the X-Men comics. We frequented the comic book shop buying various X related titles and the comic industry did everything in its power to ignite our imaginations in terms of the aforementioned film. The magazine Wizard, a comic price guide, which frequently ran articles discussing the possibility of a movie. These articles often included a list of actors for specific roles. Patrick Stewart, also my favorite Star Trek Captain, was always cast as Professor Xavier. Now as an adult I’ve seen the X-Men brought to life on the big screen. I thought that was the be all and end all. Boy was I wrong. Marvel teaming up with Disney green light the Avengers and Joss Whedon, a god among men, producing perhaps the greatest superhero film of all time. The Avengers movies set my nerd sense tingling. Any film Avengers related I can guarantee I’ll be there waiting in line to see it.
I guess that’s a long winded way of telling you I’m a nerd and I wear it as a badge of honor.
