Some random/weird/interesting facts about me:
- Kevin Rudd and I share a secret. :)
- When I was 5 I got bitten on by a spider when I sat on a toilet.
- I've been my height since I was 12. Yes, I played basketball.
- Undefeated in Twister. :D
- Beaten Minesweeper on the Expert level. I vow to never touch that game again now.
If you know what my username is in reference to, you're awesome and should definitely let me know!
Aside from that, I am a volunteer coach for my local basketball team as I really enjoy seeing kids learn and enjoy a hobby I had for a very long time. As money is somewhat a requirement to live a decent life, I also do casual bar management at a sports stadium. For fun, normally music and video games keep me somewhat sane, although I'm always looking for new things to try out.
I don't even do anything special to it! Guess I'm blessed in that way.
Also, people seem to be attracted to my eyes as they're not sure if they are green or blue. I personally think blue but it's open to interpretation!
I really enjoyed Robert Muchamore's CHERUB series and I've read most of Roald Dahl's books, the BFG being my favourite. I have an abundance of true crime books, I find it interesting to read about how crimes were solved. I'm in the middle of Lord of The Rings at the moment (yeah, a bit late, I know!)and I want to get into A Song of Ice and Fire series as well.
Love Tarantino's stuff and I really enjoy a good comedy once in a while. I'm also a real sucker for those movies with infamous dances, like Little Miss Sunshine and Napoleon Dynamite.
Oh, and like every Disney/Pixar film in existance, aside from Cars 2 (make an Incredibles 2 darn it!).
Finally, The Castle is a national treasure and the movie itself should be going "straight to the pool room", it's that good!
Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Survivor, Penn & Teller - Bullshit!, Sherlock (The UK one), House of Cards (US Version), Whose Line is it Anyway?, NCIS (both Los Angeles and the original), Orange is the new Black, Cops.
I watch most of the stuff on the TLC channel because it's a guilty pleasure to laugh at the people on the shows.
Edit: GOT NETFLIX! Oh lordy, this is going to result in very, very late nights. Discovered Archer which is hilarious, and recently started watching Legit, a show made by Jim Jefferies, his humour is right up my alley.
Open to anything really, I enjoy Dream Theater (hence the username), Apocalyptica, The Living End, Rush, Pendulum and some classic stuff like Led Zep and Queen.
Whenever I'm feeling down, I love listening to hilarious artists such as Steel Panther, Tim Minchin and Weird Al. I guess you could classify me as a metalhead but I'm too much of a softie to be a true one, just love the music. Not a gigantic fan of hip hop stuff but I'm willing to have that opinion changed!
Edit: Also I've recently started getting into listening to soundtracks and composers like Ennio Morricone (Chi Mai is f---ing incredible!), if there's anything else you could suggest, please let me know!
I LOVE milk. If it was viable to live off it, I probably would. Seriously, I drink at least 1.5 liters of it a day, full cream of course! Oh, plus Thai Sweet Chili flavored chips...
Sports teams supported:
Figured I'd add this here.
AFL - Essendon Bombers
NRL - Melbourne Storm
Rugby Union - Melbourne Rebels
NBA - Los Angeles Lakers, although I also support teams that have Australians on them, particularly the Spurs, Jazz and 76ers.
Oh, and the fact I've had an OkCupid long enough to still have this question on my profile. Apparently it's removed now, which isn't fun!
- You want to ask me any questions that are on here.
- You want to rant about nonsensical things for hours on end.
- You have music/movie/book/tv show/video game recommendations. I'm always looking for something new.
