I'm definintely a nerd, and damned proud of it! Most people who know me will tell you I'm one of the nicest guys on the planet. I'm usually pretty quiet, though that can change based on the situation and/or blood-alcohol content. :) I also have a very strange sense of humor and am dripping with sarcasm, which comes out at the most random, unexpected moments. You have been warned.
I'm working for a small computer company. We'll see how much longer that lasts. There have been layoffs and pay cuts all around lately. Hopefully I can get off this ship before it sinks.
I've also spent some of my spare time doing humorous reviews of horrible movies, and judging by the reaction so far, I'm fairly good at it. If you feel like checking out my work, it's at youtube.com/user/smeghead4269 or blip.tv/cinematic-excrement.
Movies: same as the above books, along with Star Wars, Super Troopers (Littering and...), anything Monty Python, Serenity, Tarantino movies, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight (Why so serious?), Captain America, Iron Man, The Princess Bride, Mel Brooks films, Fight Club, Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan (I'm not a trekkie, but it's a great sci-fi movie), Miyazaki films, Scott Pilgrim, Back To The Future, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The Avengers
Music: I mostly listen to metal, though I can usually tolerate anything except country, techno, and most modern punk. Some of my favorites: Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Tool, Iron Maiden, Metallica (pre-"Load"), Dream Theater, Megadeth, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Children of Bodom, Dethklok, Flogging Molly, Lamb of God, Weird Al Yankovic, Austrian Death Machine, In Flames
Food: Mexican, Italian, Chinese...I'll eat almost anything really. I'm not picky. Except when it comes to pizza toppings. I don't like pepperoni. How weird is that?
Shows: Firefly, MXC, Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse (in case listing Dethklok under music didn't give that away), Red Dwarf (it's back! and it's good again!), Black Adder, Fawlty Towers, and other examples of British humor (or I guess that should be "humour"), The Ultimate Fighter, Invader Zim, Family Guy, Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, The Big Bang Theory, Dragon Ball (including Z (Kai), NOT including GT), Sgt. Frog, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra (although the end of Book One sucked), Doctor Who (new and classic)
Music. It's always been a big part of my life. I try to go to concerts whenever I have the chance.
Video games. This has also been a big part of my life for years, but it doesn't consume it. I do actually see the sun once in a while. :)
The stupid things me and my friends have done, which usually involve fire or beer in large quantities (never both at the same time, that's just asking for an ambulance ride).
People who think allowing homosexuals to marry will somehow ruin the sanctity of their own marriage. It still boggles my mind how any sane person can arrive at this conclusion. If a relationship between two consenting adults that you have never met and likely never will meet hurts the sanctity of your marriage, your marriage never had any sanctity to begin with. Get the fuck over it, live your own life, and let others do the same, kthxbye.
Wow, did that sound as angry as I thought it did?
People that enjoy Twilight (non-ironically). I haven't read the books, but I have seen (and reviewed) the movies. It's one thing if you're a teenager and like it, since they're young and have no taste. We've all been there. But if you're a grown adult you have no excuse, unless you watch it for the unintentional comedy.
-you enjoy going to concerts (especially the type I can headbang to, but as I said I can enjoy other stuff too).
-you know a good place for rock climbing, or just want to try it out. I used to go to an indoor climbing gym in AZ all the time, but I've done it exactly once since coming to the Bay. I kinda miss it.
-you don't smoke. If you're just looking for a friend, not a big deal. But if you're looking for a date, I'm afraid this is a deal breaker. Smokers taste terrible.
