Currently, I own and manage a little comic book shop in Orange County. Its fun work getting to talk about comics and movies all day with friends and family (and yeah, that's how I feel about my customers), but it is very much still work. Sometimes I get home very late, which makes meeting new people difficult. So, I'm back!
Before this, I was a contract writer and a game designer.
Also good at selling comics. And voicing my opinions in a calm and reasonable way. That's a new skill. Remaining calm.
And I'm good at nerd knowledge and things of that nature.
Other things I'm good at include: Games (in general), listening to other people's problems and giving decent advice (I used to be a bartender), Machiavellian schemes (but only with the best of intentions) and watching Netflix marathons.
The loudness of my voice? I speak loudly sometimes when I get excited about something. And all the gesticulating. I like my hands and am not afraid to use them.
I also enjoying eating, especially when I don't have to cook. Although that's not to say I don't know how to cook, I do, it's just the cleaning up that gets me down.
Books: I read a lot, but I don't actually have a favorite author or book.
Music: Radiohead, Muse, The Cure, David Bowie, NIN, Andrew Bird, Queens of the Stone Age, Prodigy, A Perfect Circle, Weezer, Beck, Regina Spector, some other stuff... classical? Actually do have that as a preset station in the car. No joke.
Movies: Big Trouble in Little China, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Conan the Barbarian, High Fidelity, Lawrence of Arabia, Lord of War, Krull, The English Patient, Rushmore, Citizen Kane, Way of the Gun, The Great Escape, Downfall, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Prestige, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Dr. Strangelove, Last Action Hero
...and everything else.
TV: The Wire. If you haven't seen The Wire... I don't know what to think of you, only that you need to watch The Wire!
The future, mostly.
If you understood any of that.
If you like driving. If you don't mind driving once in a while. If you like to see movies in the theater. If you don't mind driving us to the theater. No, my truck is fine.
If you let me win a few arguments. But don't let me know you let me win. That would just cheapen it.
If you skipped all the trap questions on this site.
If you like to make silly faces. I am an absolute sucker for silly faces. Silly faces are the best faces.
Also, just because I own a comic book shop, doesn't mean you have to be a nerd or like nerdy things to message me. But if you are, it's very likely we just might have a ton of things in common.
Oh, and if I stalked your profile and didn't message you, you should message me.
...oh, and enemies! I want to hear from you!!! The enemy rating is of great interest to me.
