Hi, I'm Mike. Hi. I was born and raised in California, moved to Missouri for a few years ago when I was 23, and moved to Florida in 2009 to be with family. I'm kiiiiiind of a dork. I do silly things, for silly reasons. I dance to music on the overhead at stores, I flip off inanimate objects when I've left them in the wrong place, or the wrong settings. I make silly faces.
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday (or Tue/Thur/Mon for those in the know) I raid in WoW. I no longer raid lead, which is... a huge weight off my shoulders. No more herding cats. I get to be one of said cats, wheeeeee! Or perhaps that should be like... a nyaaaaaan! Something like that.
I'm good at learning, and love to do so.
With movies, I'm all over the board, but I can't stand stupid humor, and I'm not generally a big fan of horror films. I love a movie that'll make you think, and all the better if it's got action or comedy in it.
Music, I'm a fan of everything but country, rap, and pop. I'm especially big on metal, Opeth, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Katatonia, stuff like that. Lately I've been kind of stuck on Woods of Ypres. David Gold? More like David God. That man's music rocks my world. Tiamat - Wildhoney  is one of the most brilliant pieces of music I've heard in forfuckall ever. Oh. Yes. I swear. Occasionally.
Lately, I've been watching various things on Netflix. I need to get caught up on Dexter (holy shit season 7! Was that crazy, or what?), and caught up on Community (up through season 5's couple episodes). I'm fond of Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Firefly (I aim to misbehave), more or less anything by Joss Whedon (god does that man write conflict well). White Collar has been a recent addiction, as has Mythbusters (12 seasons in two months; talk about brain overload). Oh. I like to binge watch shows, either a season at a time, or after the show's already been out for several years/finished.
music - Music is one of the most integral parts of my life, while simultaneously not appearing significant. I listen to music whenever I can, doing homework, playing games, playing in the background. It helps me feel, focus, or totally rock out.
the internet - I'd lose contact with a good deal of my friends, most of whom don't live in the area, not to mention a ready source of humor and entertainment.
my friends and family - I bounce ideas off of them, judgment calls, to help find out where I stand on things, help them find out where they stand on things, keeping up to date with what's going on in their lives, and offering an ear to talk to when needed.
my phone - My other source of communication, and it's the mobile one. Helpful on long and short trips, and just to kill time.
video games - One of my primary sources of entertainment, I've been gaming since I had enough manual dexterity to manipulate the controller on an Atari 2600.
the ability to walk - I love to walk, in parks, on the beach (I know it sounds cliche, but it's true), along the street, just the slow methodical passing of what's ahead of you to under your feet and then behind you.
"It would be cool if..."
Not that I have yet, but I think I might start thinking more about, at OKTrends' insistence, Zeus, and vegetarian zombie metal bands.
I'm not looking for anything more than friends at the moment.
