|My SOULGEEK Self:||
I'm a geek. Professional level even. For fun I built/repair/maintain synthesizers with the hopeful end result of making music. I keep Charles Babbaging myself. New tools here, new techniques there. It's how I'm wired. In no particular order : I'm a cat person, but I have a pet rabbit ( don't ask ). Music is very important to me, all kinds tho for some reason I lean towards electronic (experimental and otherwise). I read a lot. Watch lots of movies. I like going out, but don't do it often. I work too much. I like road trips, but hate doing them alone. Ah well, outa room...
|The SoulGeek I'm Looking For:||
I'm attracted to the small quiet girl at the back of the club. She's there because he friends dragged her out. She reads a lot, dreams a lot, but perhaps feels like the 3rd wheel when hanging out with friends. At the club she likes the music, but never seems to fit into the scene. She likes cold clear nights where you can see the stars. How am I supposed to describe what I'm looking for? How do you describe a feeling?

|In a Nutshell|
|I'm Into:||Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, Anime, Webcomics, Video Gaming, Table Top Gaming|
|My Other Car is:||Steam Powered|
|Why I love Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, etc...||
Science Fiction - Science Fiction is writing with no boundaries at all, but with fewer of the furry toothy things from Fantasy. I like books that make me think.
Horror - Actually, I don't like most pure horror books. I like some Vampire novels and some Lovecraftian novels, but I have to be in the mood. I'm a sucker for romance novels that take place at night, what can I say. ( strange use of Romance I realize )
Fantasy - Sometimes I have to admit that SciFi books can really lack in character development. Fantasy, in some cases, has a compelling story-line *and* good characters.
Animation - In some cases a writer will have an idea that can't be sold because it might be too narrow a focus to make money. Animation can be a cheaper way out to get those ideas on screen. Could be argued there is more artistic freedom also.
Anime - Its fun. A guilty pleasure, plus in may cases ( esp the SciFi series I originally got hooked on ) you have dozens of episodes for a story arc.
|Some of my SCI-FI Favorites include:||
Dr Who, SG1, SGA, Star Wars, Trek, 70's BSG, Space 1999, Red Dwarf, Bab5 Heinlein, Asimov, Stross, Gibson, Stephenson, Sterling, Clarke, Haldeman, L'Engle. Not possible to list everything in 255 bytes.
|Some of my FANTASY favorites include:||
Charles Stross ( again! ), Jim Butcher ( Dresden Files -books- ), the first 3 of any Piers Anthony series, Conan, Red Sonya, any movie with Harryhausen animations in it.
|Some of my HORROR favorites include:||
Anne Rice, Andrew Fox, Mario Acevedo come to mind at the moment. I can devour pulp stuff at a tremendous rate ( read the *entire* book series based on Vampire:TM in a weekend ) , Forever Knight.
|Some of my ANIMATION-ANIME favorites include:||
Animation - Just about anything animated was wasn't created strictly for a merchandising tie-in or aimed solely and squarely at young children and stoners.
Anime - The classics I grew up on : Starblazers, Robotech, Ghost in the Shell, R.O.D
|Some of my COMIC BOOK/MANGA/WEBCOMIC favorites include:||
Webcomics - Something Positive, Schlock Mercenary, XKCD, Penny Arcade, Megatokyo, Flem and about a dozen others I let build-up for months so I can waste some serious time reading them in bulk.
|Some of my GAMING favorites include:||
Video Games - Space Invaders, Defender, Mario Kart, ID, Leisure Suit Larry (1,2, &3). I like side scrolling shooters the most, but don't play incredibly often.
Role Playing Games - Haven't been playing much lately. In the past I liked Carwars and GURPS while mixing multiple stylistically incompatible genres ( e.g, Cyberpunk + Bunnies&Burrows ). Also like Traveler and Gamma World. Not as much time spent with D&D after 1st ed.
