Hey, wait a minute. that's not long enough! Well, my name is Rob. Guys like me are a dime a dozen. I'm an aspiring film maker or television writer who when he sits down and honestly thinks about it, hates the film and television industry. Everything is teal and orange, and it makes me want to pull my plunge my thumbs into my eye sockets.
I have a love of all forms of bad, trashy entertainment. It sometimes feels like I can't go a day without hearing Maury pronounced Murray, and I love every second of it. I have a big list of horrible movies that I occasionally like to sit down and watch to remind myself how not to make movies. I've spent whole days watching MST3k til my eyes bled.
And none of you can ever make me, because I'm an American, damnit!
-Making jokes about things that probably shouldn't be joked about.
-Observing the eccentricities of the world around me
- Turning things into double entendres or bad puns
-Making Simpsons references.
Also, my sense of humor.
Books: Slaughterhouse V, American Gods, The Stranger, The Gunslinger, The Road, The Four Fingers of Death, When Will Jesus Bring the Porkchops?, A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Movies: Anything and everything by the Coen Brothers or David Lynch. Clerks. Park Chanwook's Revenge trilogy, The Evil Dead movies, Asian horror movies, old slasher flicks, Black Dynamite, etc.
As I mentioned beforehand, I have a thing for the "So bad, it's good" variety of movie. Birdemic is probably the worst I've seen, seriously. It makes Tommy Wiseau look like the auteur of our generation in comparison. I also particularly like the pathetic debut film of Adam Sandler, "Going Overboard". Comedy at it's worst at it's best.
TV Shows: Lost, Doctor Who, Twin Peaks, Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Community, The Adventures of Pete and Pete (Any and all 90's Nickelodeon, really.), MST3k, and too many that were cancelled before their time to even try to name.
Music: Black Flag, Radiohead, The Melvins, Scratch Acid, Mr. Bungle, Faith No More, The Kinks, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Ramones (Honestly, it's a little hard for me to listen to them. The realization that Joey, Johnny, and Dee-Dee are all dead always hits, and bums me the hell out.) Tom Waits, R.E.M.
Or on this website trying as hard as I can not to feel lame about it.
Or if you don't.
