My self-summary
My name is Cristoval and I currently work as a motion graphic designer in Edmonton.

Aside from the graphic arts I enjoy camping, chillaxing, using words like chillaxing, and long leisurely strolls (for real).

It's hard to describe myself fully as a lot of things are changing
in my life at the moment, but I suppose the best info to take away
from this is that I'm usually funny and a nice enough dude. I'm down to earth but aren't we all? That's just gravity at work. Everybody needs to stop bragging about that like it's a point of pride.

I got mad at the Jurassic Park novel on here a couple edits ago. Thinking back on it I guess I'm still kind of cheesed. That'll probably be something you'll have to deal with at some point.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working as a graphic designer. No, I will not
draw you a free tattoo, (okay I probably will but don't tell
anyone else I did that for you). I'd like to start writing again, as I stopped a while ago but enjoyed it greatly.
The first things people usually notice about me
My resemblance to ousted front-man Stephen Page of the Barenaked Ladies, Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords, and most recently Moss from The IT Crowd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy John Hodgman's series of books, and really just any
sort of compendium of collected knowledge or facts, be they true or not. The Scott Pilgrim series is high on my graphic novel list, as well as Alex Garland's, "The Beach", "Alive" and "Jurassic Park", the latter of which was pants-on-head dumb. Been slowly getting into Batman as well as of late.

My favorite movie I am not afraid to admit is Lost in
. Anything with Bill Murray in it gets immediately
moved to the top of the list. Though, if he is the gate keeper of
my heart, it is Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park which sits atop the throne.

I'm a huge Kevin Smith fan, moreso as a person lately than a director, but I find nothing wrong with his movies.

Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood, Firefly, King of the Hill, Home Movies, Bob's Burgers and American Horror Story are high on my TV list.

I hate to be one of those people who describes their taste in music as eclectic, but that's basically what's going on here. Instead of listing a whole slew of bands in random order, I will instead tell you that my top 3 artists right now are Modest Mouse, Grizzly Bear and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. (Addendum: That was written a few years back, even more recently I've been getting into dubstep. I'm sorry if you made it this far and were starting to come around, but it's true. BUT, I'm also loving Sea Wolf, Dan Mangan, Portishead, Santigold, Fanfarlo and frig, I don't know... oh, Chairlift. Yes, that's the ticket!

My favorite Pokemon is Jigglypuff.

Cooking is another way I pass the time. I've come to realize I can cook a better steak than most of the restaurants I frequent, which is pretty big bragging rights in a place like Alberta.

For the internet crowd I enjoy reading Achewood, Penny-Arcade, Gunshow, PvP, and Scary-Go-Round
Six things I could never do without
Music of any tune, my family, access to the Internet, a means for creating, and of course my friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things I should probably get around to creating, things I should get around to doing, and just how comfortable this particular spot is at the moment
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing in any number of ways.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie
You should message me if
If you find any of this at all interesting.

Hell, even if you don't, write me angry messages of offense!
The two of us
