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

For once a truly interesting user popped up when using the "random use" function. Its a shame you arent female, or I probably would have asked you to marry me. Anyone who has read the Neverending Story - and is able to appreciate the full depth in the actual story, and not the abdomination that is the movie - can consider himself a friend of mine. And no - I do not think Pullmanns "Dark matter" books will be able to match Endes TNS.

Having said all that - I must admit I havent read several of the books you referred to there - but I know of several other people that might know them by heart. Feel free to drop sea and wolfco a line. They are both avid sci-fi fans. Heh - perhaps especially sea. 

Okay - have fun, take care - and enjoy! (redundant terms - I know)
