I should describe myself, I’m probably a half-insane (in a good way) geek who can go idle for two weeks and then go on a rampage for 3 months not stopping for a second, even to breath. Read a lot, about anything and everything, loves science stuff, history stuff. Play hockey cosom once a week, used to do a lot more sports and I kind of miss it.
I’m usually the comic relief, down to earth, no-nonsense type of guy. Can pretty much adapt to any situation.
But besides that, I don’t know in which bucket to put myself in. I might be too weird to be with the normal kids. And I’m too normal to hang out with the weird kids. But that’s me basically. I’m always on the fence trying to balance things in life.
To pay the bills and the rest, I’m a project manager for a automation company. Love it. Each day is a challenge and I must admit that I need that to thrive, if not, i’m going braindead. It suits my problem resolving skills.
Books , books… anything readable ? (that do not includes Twitlight (sorry) and including cereal boxes) I Love history books like stuff from WW2 or international politics/history (yeah I like that). Lord of the Rings (read those a couple of times), Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dan Simmons is my absolute favorite writer of all time and the Hyperion/Endemyon books are the best. Hubert Reeves is a must read. Robin Hobb, Glen Cook, freaking Walking Dead maniac (yes those are books to me, don’t judge, fan since the beginnings)
Here it’s anything. Mostly geek stuff, sci fi and such, but I can pretty much watch anything. My favorites ? I’ll limit myself but : Lords of the Rings (duh!), Alien (s) (not the mess of the last two), Prometheus, Fight Club, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead (did I say that I got a crush on everything by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg ?), Red Cliffs, Bourne Trilogy, Green Zone (here comes the Paul Greengrass connection), Signs, Moon, Kill Bill, Pan’s Labyrinth, Nolan’s Batman Trilogy, etc etc. You can even go with foreign movies, I don’t mind the subtitles (prefer them in fact, to the freaking bad dubbed versions).
Here again, geekiness is showing.Walking Dead, Fringe, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, BSG, The IT Crowd, Flashpoint, The Wire, Top Gear, Mythbusters, etc
I’m stuck in my youth, so it’s mainly 90’s bands, but slowly evolving towards indie bands : Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, RATM, Nine Inch Nails, Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, Modest Mouse, System of a Down, Wu-Tang Clan, IAM, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, Daft Punk.
I like food, that’s it. If it’s edible, I will eat it. Seafood in particular. But I’m watching what goes on my plate.
How can the world be so stupid and so awesome at the same time.
And if I got it wrong, I totally meant the other one, honest.
So don't be shy to send me a message or to reply.
