As for myself, I'm a male college student from Montana. I formerly attended the University of Montana in Missoula, but I'm a native Bozemanite, and a definite Cats fan (Cat-Griz is kind of a big deal around here), so for various reasons, I transferred to MSU-Bozeman. I got into TvTropes about a year ago (February 2009), but only just now decided to start contributing. I'm a history/classics major, and I enjoy all things related to Greco-Roman culture (do NOT get me started on 300 though).

As far as edits I make, I generally don't create new examples for older pages; I'd rather refine someone else's work than try to stretch something that doesn't really fit. One page I have contributed a fair bit to is MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness. This is because I am a huge Death Metal fan, and am seriously considering starting some pages for bands I'm into. So far the only one I started is for {{Atheist}}, but perhaps more will come. I also try to provide balance to viewpoints that are perhaps unjustly shunned (ie while I support gun control, its opponents deserve to be heard, and not contemptuously dismissed), regardless of whether I agree with them; this is because, as a left-wing atheist, I understand what it's like to be unfairly dismissed.

Aside from the above stuff, I have fairly typical tastes for this site. My favorite film directors are Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Cameron Crowe, and Christopher Nolan. I'm a huge JossWhedon fan, though my favorite show by far is {{Angel}}, which isn't the case for most people. I also love shows like TheWire, {{Community}}, RobotChicken, {{The West Wing}}, {{Supernatural}}, and MadMen. My favorite fictional book is War and Peace, and my favorite nonfictional book is the Muqaddimah. Seriously, if you've never heard of it, read the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muqaddimah Wikipedia article]], and prepare to have you mind blown. I am also a huge StarWars fan, and I enjoy the ExpandedUniverse even more than the movies. My favorite games are {{RPG}}s, J or Western, and my favorite game is {{Final Fantasy X}}, followed by {{Knights of the Old Republic}}. Besides this website, I enjoy quite a few others, but one of my favorites is [[http://www.avclub.com/ the AV Club]], where I have the same handle. It's a great website for top quality articles (though it does skew hipster), and the comments section is often the best part so feel free to check it out.

So far the only one I started is for {{Atheist}}, but perhaps more will come. Most of the bands I'm really into are 8-11, but I still enjoy stuff way below those (all the way down to 1), since quality doesn't really correlate with hardness.
