Who is Pyrodyne, you're probably wondering, else you wouldn't be reading this. Well, my friends say I'm creative and amusing, my enemies say I'm a good shot with a paintball gun, onlookers say I'm crazy to go so close to the old Sutter place, and law enforcement professionals say speed limits aren't mere suggestions.
I'm a nerd with outdoorsy impulses. I grew up on a horse farm, lived in the city and studied science law, just got a job and I'll be moving to Fishkill NY in January to be a corporate drone!
How to Train your Dragon. Mad Max: Fury Road is probably second place. I also love all Pixar and Miyazaki movies, and Star Warsof course. I tend to prefer scifi or period pieces. Just saw Zootopia and I really liked it.
Favorite TV Show or Anime:
Battlestar Galactica, followed by Trigun, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Band of Brothers, Better Off Ted, and Avatar the Last Airbender. Adventure Time and Outlaw Star are also excellent.
Favorite Video Game:
Either Bastion, Halo, Company of Heroes, Mass Effect, Half Life 2, or Minecraft.
The Hobbit, followed closely by October Sky, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and To Kill a Mockingbird, The Dresden Files, the Mistborn Trilogy, and Stormlight Archives.
Favorite Music: Anything upbeat and/or triumphant! Generally not country or rap, though.
The wind in my hair while speeding egregiously
A supporting cast of dopey farm animals
A cast iron skillet
A nerf gun within easy reach
Carl Sagan's voice
I care very little for sports or wine or shopping or craft beers, so if those things are central to your life then I'm not your man.
