I joined this website for quizzes, banter and finding new friends. I will now make a valiant effort to describe myself and my interests, but, as a warning, it will most likely be creepy, shitty, boring or all of the above.
I enjoy playing video games, especially RPGs. Some of my favourites are Okami, Final Fantasy (especially VII and VIII), Zelda, Kirby and Mario games, as well as WoW, Yoshi's Story, Dragon Age II, Fallout New Vegas and The Elder Scrolls: IV and V. I will kick your ass in a Pokemon battle. Also, while this is not a video game, I rock at Magic (I am madly in love with my white soldier-angel deck).
When I am not playing games, I am usually doing some kind of art. I enjoy doodling, inking and painting dinosaurs from fossils, mythical creatures and little animal characters that range from silly to mildly disturbing. I also take pet portraits for money, because people will pay for literally ANYTHING.
I also collect, boil and bleach animal skulls that I find in the woods. Don't worry, I promise I'm not a serial killer (though I'm sure a serial killer would say that as well). Skeletons are neat.
I am not ashamed to admit that I am somewhat of a cat lady, but proudly not to the extent that I have cat-fur sweaters or refer to them as my children. I have four; my newest is a black kitten named Hatbox Sandwich Motorcycle. Animals are rad.
My background is uninteresting, other than the fact that I grew up in the NATO headquarters in Belgium, so I will leave it at that. I hope this all wasn't too rambly and dull.
I enjoy reading webcomics, as well. Comics I follow include Johnny Wander, Hark! A Vagrant, Octopus Pie, Girls with Slingshots, Nedroid, Eat More Bikes, Questionable Content and several others.
Movies: Gladiator, The Boondock Saints, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Schindler's List, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Amelie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, V for Vendetta, Secondhand Lions, Defiance, Enemy at the Gates and anything by Hayao Miyazaki. I have a deep love for World War (I AND II) films and historical epics; I am always looking for good film recommendations! I am also a huge fan of b-movies and other lovably awful films like Birdemic: Shock and Terror and The Room.
I don't watch TV often, but when I do, I'm probably watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Yo Gabba Gabba, The Walking Dead, Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, Trailer Park Boys, Dexter, Game of Thrones or something on National Geographic, Discovery, History or Animal Planet.
Music: Andrew Bird, Blackbird Raum, Elliott Smith, Flotation Toy Warning, Islands, Kaizers Orchestra, Man Man, Neko Case, Russian Red Army Choir, Beethoven, Sea Wolf, Sunset Rubdown, The Boy Least Likely to, Mozart, The Mountain Goats, We Are Scientists and Wolf Parade. I love music, but am quite picky about it.
Food: Pot roast and french onion soup. I'm not too picky about food, though; I have a compromised sense of taste and smell, so a lot of food tastes the same (like nothing) to me.
I think I recently solved that last mystery thanks to someone here on OKC, but I refuse to accept such a horrible thing.
