I'm freelance reporter in Halifax and the surrounding HRM, a graduate of the University of King's College Journalism school, and I'm an unabashed NERD. I like to think I have a good sense of humour, and am a pretty reasonable, non-insane person to deal with. I am a fan of all good things literate, be they books, comics, movies, television, and even video games. If it has a good story and tickles my fancy, I'm all over it. I live in Halifax NS with my cats Meowsie and Otto.
What I am NOT good at is talking about things I'm good at.
Movies: Jurassic Park, Spider-Man 2, Ghostbusters, almost anything by Stanley Kubrick, Whisper of the Heart (a lesser-known Studio Ghibli film) Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Transformers: The Movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, most Pixar movies, Rosemary's Baby, John Carpenter's The Thing, and many, MANY more. I like movies a lot.
Books: Watchmen, the Sandman series, V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, The Walking Dead, Invincible, Ultimates 1 & 2, 1984, The Chrysalids, The Day of the Triffids, Fun Home, The Moonstone, Catcher in the Rye, Brave New World, and once again, many more that are too many to list. An even larger list is 'All The Books I Want To Read But Haven't Yet.'
Music: Classical music, movie scores, Daft Punk, Queen, 80's music, and mostly other instrumental music. That one wasn't so bad.
Shows: A lot of animated things. Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel series, Transformers for the most part, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and lots more. Non-animation wise, I'm quite fond of Dexter, and Parks and Recreation is the funniest show on television. I also watch a few Japanese shows. Mostly Kamen Rider. One of my current favourites is Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger. Again, this is a situation where I like a LOT of things in this category.
Food: I'm not overly picky! But if I had to choose favourites, I'm partial to good egg rolls, Italian food, Japanese food, Greek food, and basic Meat n' Potatoes kind of stuff. Also I love fruits like Clementines, grapes and cherries, yet not so fond of strawberries.
2. My computer/Internet (it's my livelihood, and my perpetual source of distraction!)
3. My closest friends & family
4. Transformable toy robots.
5. My DVD/bluray player/video game console (and the game/movie collection that it runs on)
6. Food, oxygen and water. For, you know, living reasons.
Or you know, whatever. Don't feel like you need to meet criteria to message me. Go ahead, strike up a conversation!
Also, I suffer from occasional shyness, especially with this whole dating thing, so if I pop by your profile and say nothing, I promise I'm not being a creeper! You're probably just so cool that I didn't think I had anything cool enough to say.
