about me

I'm a graduated journalist, post-graduation studant (Master of Science - Communications), university professor wannabe, natural born gamer and geek by nature. From this info, I bet you can already tell about some of my hobbies. ^_^

Since I believe insight can be attained by knowing what someone likes, let me tell ya about my top 5...

...Books:

  • High Fidelity - Nick Hornby (yay to top 5 lists, huh? :P)
  • Neverending Story - Michael Ende (damn movies! everytime I imagine the dragon, I see him with a dog face)
  • Lord of the Rings trilogy - J.R.R. Tolkien (the way we have imagined fantasy worlds until now wouldn't be the same without Tolkien)
  • Stardust - Neil Gaiman (the way we are re-imaginating fantasy worlds today wouldn't be posible without Gaiman)
  • The Vampire Lestat - Anne Rice (for those who were teenagers in the 80s or 90s, this was our Harry Potter)

..Movies

  • Matrix (forget about the sequels)
  • High Fidelity (made me aware of Nick Hornby, today one of my favourite authors)
  • Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (a true fairy tale, without fairies)
  • L'Auberge Espagnole (along with High Fidelity and Sideways, the movie I watch to dream and understand myself)
  • Dead Poets Society (actually anything with Robin Williams, really)

..."Table" RPGs

  • Mage: The Ascension (the more I study and the more I learn, the more I understand this is the cleverest RPG game I know)
  • GURPS (for being anything you want it to be)
  • Castle Falkenstein (steampunk, mad scientists, swashbuckling, high fantasy and victorian literature)
  • Deadlands (gunslingers, mad scientists, hucksters and shootouts at high noon)
  • Changeling: The Dreaming (just startlingly beautiful)

my life spent on anime

Wow, I never expected to actually get a response to one of my Recommendations. I've always had the urge to write one for mushishi and kino, so to hear you liked it feels great :)

Hi there - sorry for not getting back to you sooner (believe me - I have a lot of appologies to hand around - I have been extremely busy with work these last couple of months). The few times I have been around I have always stayed in the chat - which in a way is my "home". Hmm - I really ought to be a more faithful user of the forums as well - oh well.

 Regarding the Merlin trilogy books - no, I havent read them, but I have heard about them. They sound pretty interesting - almost a kind of mix between some early Ursula Leguin and ... ummm ... the author that wrote the Golden Witchbreed books (forgot the name).

 You mentioned also Stardust - are you referring to the novel by Neil Gaiman that the movie is based on on?  Or were you thinking of something else? (and yes, I have still to watch Stardust - not that it says very much, I havent watched 300 yet either for that matter *sigh*)

 Hope you are doing great - I hope to be more active i

Since you saw Crystal Triangle, I suggest you check out Black Lion that I just added (including the review). ABSOLUTE HILARIOUSNESS.
