I have also taken up photography, and I've been doing quite well with it. Some examples are in the photos section of my profile. You can see more at http://www.hughcaseyphoto.com/.
I am geeky, awesome, and pretty damned cool.
I guess I'm figuring out what I'm doing with my life. I have the funny feeling that I'll be doing that until the day I die.
Otherwise, I'm working on being the best me possible.
On a more concrete level, I cleverly disguise myself as a normal person, I work on my next filmmaking or writing project, and updating my blog (http://www.hughcasey.com). I'm also currently the Director of Programming for a regional Sci-Fi Conference, and I help out with a number of other SF cons (please see the above note about my being "geeky").
Also working on being the best me I can be. I'm getting there.
Oh, you'd like more detail? OK... I'm a fine writer, speaker, and actor, and I seem to be very adept at making friends (I joke that "Women love me, and men all want to be my friend!" *grin*). I'm also quite funny (or at least I'll assume that everyone else is laughing WITH me, not AT me!).
I've been told that my eyes, my smile, and my voice are all pretty distinctive (in a good way). I tend to be one of those people who other people gather around at parties... I have NO idea how or why this happens.
I write, I'm a filmmaker, and I love a good conversation. I also spend way too much time tooling around the internet, and updating my blog at http://www.hughcasey.com. I'm also a hobby gamer... D&D, miniature gaming, Carcassone, Settlers of Catan ("Do you have wood for sheep?"), and lots of other games.
Among my favorite books are "Lord Of The Rings", "The Prophet" by Gibran, "Stranger In A Strange Land", the "Sandman" series by Neil Gaiman, and most of Shakespeare's works. Authors I enjoy include Asimov, Bradbury, Gaiman (who I personally think is the finest writer alive today), Ellison, Heinlein, David Gerrold, Cory Doctorow, Charles Stross, John Scalzi, Peter David, Keith DiCandido, and a whole lot of others... but it's hard to find time to read these days.
Movies I enjoy are the Star Wars films, Blade Runner, Lord Of The Rings, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Casablanca (probably the finest film ever made), PIXAR films, and many, many other movies. I'm a bit of a film buff.
TV shows I watch are Mythbusters, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, pretty much ANY Star Trek show, and most of the line-up on the various versions of the Discovery Channel and History Channel, with a smattering of the Sci-Fi Channel thrown in.
Music... I'm into most everything. I'm especially fond of classic rock and 80's new wave and 80's retro. I *REALLY* like celtic music.
As for food... well, is it bad for me? Then I probably like it. (Hey... I need to keep my girlish figure...) ;-P
I am, however a bit ADD, so... Oh, look! A squirrel!
Some things include:
Watching something interesting on TV... preferably with friends.
Hanging out with friends.
Seeing a movie.
Going out on a date.
Or perhaps I'll be at a con. I go to Balticon (Memorial Day Weekend), Wicked Faire (February), Wizard World Philly (May/ June), Pi-Con (August), Arisia (January), Philcon (November... this one's my home-town con), and others. I'm often asked to be a speaker or panelist at them. They're sort of my little vacations from reality. *grin*
Or, I might just be sitting at home for a quiet night in.
I have a blog at (http://www.hughcasey.com), which I update through LiveJournal. If you have an LJ and seem like cool people, and you ask, I may well friend you. (Of course, most my postings are public, so you can read it without my "friending" you.)
While I'm not listed here as Poly, Kinky, or Pagan, that doesn't mean I'm not Poly-friendly, Kink-friendly, or Pagan-friendly. I'm pretty much just friendly! So please get in touch!
If you like SF/Fantasy, and other geeky things, then DEFINITELY get in touch! We'll probably get along wonderfully!
