The basics about me that I’m willing to share with anyone:
I currently live in the U.S.
I’ve written a trilogy of Young Adult Sci-Fi novels that, so far, are unpublished. The first book should be coming out in 2023, hopefully.
My favorite movie of all-time changes depending on what day you ask. It just depends on which character’s lines I’m reciting in my head. Memorable characters make films memorable for me, which is why I can’t pick just one. Some performances I especially enjoy are The Joker from The Dark Knight, Dark Helmet from Spaceballs, Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, Alan Rickman’s Sherriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Antonio Serrano from the Brandon Lee martial arts action flick Rapid Fire, Skeletor from Masters of the Universe, Shredder from the 1990 film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Borg Queen from Star Trek: First Contact, the members of Spinal Tap in This Is Spinal Tap, the velociraptors from Jurassic Park, the tornadoes in Twister, the robots in Robot Jox, the arcade machine in The Last Starfighter, the phone booth in Phone Booth, the bobsled in Cool Runnings, the insults in White Men Can’t Jump, and many characters from George Lucas’ Star Wars films. I also have a special place in my heart for the Minions, all of them (I have a big heart, so they all fit). Special shout-out to the 1987 film Mannequin, the 2001 film A Knight’s Tale, the 2018 documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, and of course, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Four of my favorite songs are Robbi Robb’s “In Time” from the Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure soundtrack, Lily Allen’s take on “Somewhere Only We Know,” the tragic “House On A Hill” by The Pretty Reckless, and Aurora’s enchanting “Winter Bird” (videos can be seen below).
My favorite TV series was Firefly, an amazing Sci-Fi/Western that thankfully only lasted for 14 episodes (It got cancelled before the producers had a chance to make a bad episode). If you check it out, be sure to follow up the last episode with the film Serenity to close out the story. Also, if you’ve never seen the Downton Abbey series + movies combination, what are you waiting for? Watch that too! Also watch the 2004 TV series Battlestar Galactica. It’s a show I highly recommend as it’s totally well-crafted: story, characters, pacing, action, drama… everything. Oh, and I could never forget Gilmore Girls. Just a darling show, and I thoroughly enjoyed the four Netflix movies.
And now, a random list of loves:
I love Bungie’s Halo games but I’m okay with Halo 4 as my head canon’s final game in the series (since I absolutely enjoy The Master Chief Collection).
I love the Raiders, whether they’re in Oakland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, or wherever. Although, still to this day, I do not own a Raiders jersey. Strangely enough, the only sports jersey I own is Rod Smart’s HE HATE ME jersey from the Las Vegas Outlaws of the 2001 version of the XFL.
I love the rain.
I love chicken and waffles drenched in maple syrup.
I love Two Steps From Hell. Do yourself a favor and give their music a listen at their YouTube channel.
I love watching bad movies, because there’s a lot you can learn from seeing what doesn’t work about a story or characters. Plus, it’s okay to enjoy bad movies, even while picking them apart. My favorite bad movies to watch, especially around Halloween, are the Resident Evil movies starring Mila Jovovich.
I love curling. It’s one of my favorite sports; I catch it whenever possible during the Winter Olympics, along with ice skating.
I love ballet.
I love the Wilhelm Scream.
I love “Weird Al” Yankovic. He’s a total genius.
I love Dr. Seuss. My favorite book of all time is Oh, the Places You’ll Go!.
And I will always, always, always love Bruce Lee and his Jeet Kune Do philosophy. His book, Tao of Jeet Kune Do, changed my life for the better. 🙂
And now, a few more favorites:
My favorite television sitcom is and likely always will be Married… with Children, because the writers only cared about making people laugh.
My favorite nonfiction book is Lost Moon by Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger, which is the book the movie Apollo 13 is based on.
And my favorite line of dialogue ever written comes from Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie:
I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid, and I went ahead anyway.
^ That’s also how I live my life.
Finally, if you Like this Bio, even after having read it, and leave a comment saying how interesting I am, I’ll think of you as a seriously awesome person, because you have to be to seriously have cared enough to read this far.
And as promised in parentheses, here are the videos:
Grease 2 is better than Grease. There, I said it.
Why are you still reading this? Go watch the Karate Kid movies (I, II, III, and The Next Karate Kid) then watch Cobra Kai!
