Hey, all. [[TheTerminator I'm back.]]

Anyway, about me: I'm not a new forumite, starting out [[http://deletionquality.net/ here]] where I'm somewhere between a regular and a old-guard of the same name. That place is in need of some love in the form of new (and permanent) members. Check it out.

I play music and previously studied nursing. Now I am just starting at a local door manufacturing company. As I have been playing violin practically my entire life, I feel like I'm almost entitled to say that music truly ''is'' my world. I currently work at a nursing home and sub for a county level orchestra, which is pretty rad, I'd say.


I have taken it my responsibility to keep the {{Gambit Index}} in running order. Though I have been slacking from running my [[XanatosGambit watch]] as of lately.
I'm from one of the cloudiest cities in the United States, north of [[{{Seattle}} that one city]] and south of [[{{Stargate City}} that other one.]] The actual town of {{Death Cab for Cutie}}.
Oh yea, if I haven't mentioned it before, I play epic violin. And I quote cheesy '80's songs and [[PungeonMaster puns]] a lot. And I love hiking. And JRRTolkien.

[[ThePowerOfRock Music changes lives.]]

I am currently crusading against {{Fandumb}}. Help me fight it. note: I'm a big fan of MoffsLaw and QualityOverQuantity.

As for the {{Table}} discussion,I am a part of Salt.

[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXDL6_3gFu0 What's said here is IMPORTANT.]]


[[folder:What I think of me:]]

* {{Large ham}} is almost a prerequisite for being a troper.
* {{younger than they look}}
* {{Stepford snarker}}/{{Stepford Smiler}} - As if you weren't hiding something too. Hell, it's the internet.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}} - Duh.
* {{Rule of Cool}}/ RuleOfFunny - I pretty much run on these two.
* {{Berserk Button}} - Do not, I repeat, ''DO NOT'' call me weird.
* {{Freaky Is Cool}}
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
** More specifically, {{The cuckoolander was right}}
* I don't care if I may be a FanHater, people are stupid.
* I try to be NiceToTheWaiter
* I have been accused of speaking SesquipedalianLoquaciousness at times. I don't care.
* [[ViewersAreGoldfish Other people are goldfish]]
* MustHaveCaffeine - I live in a place where coffee shops are almost every block.
* NatureLover ...can't be understated.
* While I do understand and use metaphors, idioms, etc, I am much more LiteralMinded than a good few of my friends.
** On that note, I have noted that I ''am'' fairly good at LiteralistSnarking.
* LighterAndSofter - I'm not much of a metal person, even if I have a specific taste.
* I really don't want to see NoBackwardsCompatibilityInTheFuture.
* [[SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes Read Lord of the Rings many tens of times.]]
* I can be quite the RulesLawyer if i wanted/needed to.
* I go out of my way to avoid TheFriendNobodyLikes.
* To a degree, BeingPersonalIsntProfessional.
* CrackIsCheaper for music, at least. $5,000 violin with $800 bow, not even including must-have accesories? SURE!

'''Tropes I like:'''
* DragonInChief
* [[ContinuityPorn Lots of continuity.]]

[[folder: Stuff I don't like]]


I find these bands played so much/adored so much that I've started to not liking them:
* {{LMFAO}}
* {{Metallica}}
* {{Michael Jackson}}
* {{Queen}}
* {{ACDC}}
* {{Aerosmith}}
* {{Lynyrd Skynyrd}}
* {{Lady Gaga}}
* {{Black Sabbath}}
* {{Motörhead}}
* {{Iron Maiden}}
* A few others.

'''Music that I'm starting to not like as much because it's being played WAY TOO MUCH:'''
[[labelnote:Clicky]]Not that I don't like them or their fans, I've just heard their songs too much and need a break from them.[[/labelnote]]
* {{Van Halen}}
* {{The Beetles}}
* {{{Jimi Hendrix}}


* MLP. Fandumb doesn't begin to cover it.
* GameOfThrones - While the story itself isn't bad, I stopped liking it when I realized that George Martin was writing ChandlersLaw...[[FullFrontalAssault but with danglies]] instead of guns, and honestly, that's just bad writing. Not that ChandlersLaw was ever really good writing to begin with, but the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything danglies]]? SERIOUSLY? WTH author?

Tropes that annoy me:

* TheDulcineaEffect, because relationships ''DO NOT HAPPEN THAT WAY.''

Tropes I really do NOT like:

* IntercourseWithYou. No explanation needed.
* CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority. Authority is needed in many more ways than most people realize.
* CultureJustifiesAnything. [[HanlonsRazor No, it doesn't.]]
* HeManWomanHater and whatever its DistaffCounterpart is.

** Hello again @/JRPictures
* So, have you heard any new awesome music lately? Anything that makes you say "This is awesome. I need to share this with someone?" - @/CompletelyNormalGuy
** Fairly good. To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of dubstep. I mean, it's entertaining and all, but I just don't feel it. Hopefully that made sense. - @/CompletelyNormalGuy
** DreamTheater is always awesome. - @/CompletelyNormalGuy
** That was quite awesome! I will have to follow that band now. Thank you. - [[@/CompletelyNormalGuy Me again]]
** Well, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPH1OoTobtk this.]] you might like it. - @/CompletelyNormalGuy

* You know, I ''almost'' [[CrowningMomentOfIndifference batted an eyelid]] at the Creepypasta. It may or may not say something about my mental health. --@/ElectrumZephyr
* I don't get this... --@/SabrinaDiamond
* Unfortunately, now I ''have'' read/watched the BenDrowned creepypasta. So, yeah. Thanks, man. ~ @/{{Aralyn}}
* Prince and the Revolution's song "Raspberry Beret" tells the story of a teenager's first sexual experience, lifted straight from the cheapest, most cliched, trashy romance novel that could be found at a local pharmacy. In it, a teenager has sex with this girl in Old Man Johnson's barn in front of some very confused horses, and there's a thunderstorm outside the barn. The girl wears a raspberry beret. --@/SeanMurrayI
* The pic would probably be creepier if there was some red in it. [[{{Beat}} ...]] I don't know either. - @/UmLovely
