Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile! I hope it's at least a bit entertaining if not intriguing [chuckle] If you're not interested that's cool too, I hope you find what you're looking for :D
If I had to describe myself just with broad descriptors I would probably do so as follows (in no apparent order): Metal-Head, Geek, Artist, Techie, Nerd, Intellectual, Gamer, Hippie, Realist, Designer, ex-Goth, Dreamer, Hopeless-romantic, jack-of-all-trades. So yeah, kind of complex at times [chuckle]
I'm generally a light hearted, honest, caring, open-minded and easy-going individual. However I have a tendency to over-think things so I may seem a bit shy or reserved at times. Having said that, I'm something of a creative writer so conversation in text is something I'm very comfortable with [shrug]
That's the short version, feel free to peruse the rest if you feel like getting into the nitty-gritty details :D
For hobbies I'm all over the map. I'm into all kinds of games (save those that have an emotional toll on people), models, miniatures, music, movies, books, art and all that jazz. My more creative stuff I would usually classify as writing, drawing or composing. I also do martial arts, but probably not the kind you think [chuckle] Check out some of my pictures to get a better idea of what I mean ^__^
Oh, and I think a lot. Tons of analyzing and weighing risks on everything and anything, just in case you couldn't tell yet.
I'm not sure if it qualifies as "good at" but I love to create, well, things! Be it putting together a model, drawing a character, kit-bashing or customizing things, writing, designing games or messing with audio to get something cool sounding it's one of my drives I guess. I love scratching that creative itch.
If it's winter, people will probably notice my long coat first, and then fail to notice anything else [chuckle]
For movies, books and shows I tend to go with a bit of everything. I have a weakness for science fiction and fantasy but I'll give anything a try.
Some key Works:
The Dune novels written by Frank Herbert (haven't read the stuff from his son yet), anything by A. Lee Martinez (you should check him out if you haven't heard of him), H.P. Lovecraft's works, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Innocent Mage, Awakened Mage, The Strain, the "Living with zombies" series (Married with zombies, flip this zombie, eat slay love), The zombie survival guide, world war z, John dies at the end, This book is full of spiders, Be ready for when the sh*t goes down, judge dread comics, the aliens comics, the aliens versus predator comics, locke and key, persepolis, scott pilgrim series, Gantz, Claymore, etc. etc.
Aliens series, Predator series, almost anything with Arnold in it, the corneto trilogy, equilibrium, the matrix (first one), Star wars IV-VI, Demolition man, enter the dragon, evil dead, machete, etc. etc.
Breaking Bad, Game of thrones, Doctor Who, Star trek (original, next generation, deep space nine and voyager), American horror story, sons of anarchy, Murdoch Mysteries, Poirot, Orphan Black, Archer, Frisky Dingo, Metalocalypse, Futurama, Transformers (original series :D) Code Geass, Gundam (a lot of the series, not going to list them all), gasaraki, d. gray man, broken saints, museum secrets, river monsters, a couple of reality tv shows like storage wars, baggage battles, pawn stars, american restoration, counting cars and canada's worst driver/handyman series, burger land usa, weird food america, man vs food, etc. etc.
For music I'm also all over the place. Yup, I'm a metal head, but I also enjoy classical, jazz, opera and a whole gamut of other stuff. You're just as likely to see me screaming or growling along with some death metal as you are seeing me groove out to some jazz or relax and listen to some classical.
Some key points:
Disturbed, Cradle of Filth, Dio, System of a down, Nirvana, Seether, H.P. Lovecraft (yep, look it up, it exists and it's not what you think), Warbringer, lots of different classical, opera, jazz (listing comporsers feels a little bit too clunky), etc. etc.
Finally for food, well, I love almost all kinds of food. I'm not a huge fan of fish, yet I love sushi (go figure). As with most of my likes I tend to enjoy all of it in different ways ^__^
List not available as there is just too much good stuff out there.
Recently - Differnt worlds and characters of my own design, mostly 'cause I'm runing one or two free-form RPGs
Recently I've been spending a lot of Fridays working on a project with a friend of mine who's also on here, and taking breaks for a couple of games of something or some anime or TV shows..
