Pure distilled awesomeness fueled by rage driven misanthropy and a love of science
and an engineering graduate with an interest in nuclear, aerospace, and robotics, Mecha
are still a Guilty Pleasure
for me. Generally fun kind of dude with a slight dark humor streak (and by slight I mean several miles wide) and decent knowledge of most scientific fields (or so I like to think). Destruction of the Earth may or may not be his lifetime goal. A firm believer that most politicians
, reporters and mimes
need to be CLEANSED WITH THE PURIFYING FLAME

, busty redheads
that know how to fight
My personal preferences vary from medium to medium but tend to stay within the Science Fiction
, Fantasy, Action, and Comedy genres.
- Book series I'm a fan of include: Posleen War Series, Troy Rising, Animorphs (completed, my very first books that didn't have pictures), the Vorkosigan Saga (possibly completed), and authors I like include Larry Niven, John Ringo, Timothy Zahn, and David Eddings. There's likely dozens of others lost to the ages past when I didn't pay attention to the authors or keep track of the series of what I was reading at the time.
- Film preferences tend to gravitate toward Action and Comedy movies in particular as books offer better plot structure and speculation, but I like seeing pretty pictures, especially Stuff Blowing Up.
- Television series I watch tend to gravitate toward animation of both Western and Eastern origin depending on mood. I tend to prefer Shonen, but have enjoyed several Seinin series. I generally turn to Western Animation for my comedy with favorites being the old Cartoon Cartoons, Looney Toons, and parodies such as Megas XLR. However there are several Western Animation action series that appeal including anything by Genndy Tartakovsky.
- Live-Action Television series are near non-existent, but I watched Fire Fly, The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Star Gate (pretty much all of them), and the later Star Trek series.
- Music tends to be Classic Rock with large amounts of ACDC and others strewn about. Mixed in will be Anime and Movie OST's and Ominous Latin Chanting with others such as Within Temptation and Night Wish or whatever else catches my fancy. Classical, country, folk, rap, A Capella (unless also used for background music) and polka are all excluded from my trying lists.
- Video Games tend to be either Real-Time Strategy or Flight Simulators where I get to shoot missiles at things. Puzzle games are not unheard of though. I'm currently playing with Sins of a Solar Empire and have Supreme Commander 2 waiting in the wings.
- Comics are effectively unheard of due to price tags.
- Web Comics, I tend to prefer things of a parody nature but have read numerous dramatic ones. Used to read more, but school got in the way. Now I tend to focus on just a few that I chat about in the forums media place. The main ones I focus on are Goblins Life Through Their Eyes, The Order of the Stick, Spinnerette and Schlock Mercenary, with others sitting in the background.
- Web Original I read include The Salvation War, Tiberium Wars, and Shinji And Warhammer 40000.
- Theatre is something I avoid as it offers me nothing that Film can't do better, while being in genres I don't like such as Romance or Drama.
Overall, not a fan of True Art
. I simply view artworks as fun hobbies, rather than important
, as many others seem to treat it
. I have no respect for classics of any kind and consider status as such as points against the work due to continuous exposure to such "pinnacles of perfection" being incredibly boring. I view a works good/bad rating as synonymous with entertaining/boring. I have a truly intense hatred for Shakespeare.
I am curating a number of pages and try to help others edit better. I am very active in both TRS and Image Pickin' and helped set up some of the standard practices there. I, unfortunately, do not remember to stop by Ask The Tropers
, Lost and Found
, or You Know That Show
as often as I should.
Stuff I've contributed:
- Images found:
- Images modified for wiki purposes
- Tropes I helped name/rename:
- Pages Created.
If anyone wants to add stuff, have at it.

Just thought I should let you know...whenever now is, I am, in fact, eating a box of all-red Starbursts. Yes, right now, as you're reading this. ~deathjavu

Yeah seriously, is your avatar Joanna Dark

- As mentioned, it's most likely fan art of a character from Gundam00. ~Deboss
Deboss was mentioned in this blog
, which took issue with his stance on literature.
- Quite amusing. Although, they seemed to have missed some things, I've listed things I have read and decided to mention, not things I've read. I actually have a great deal of trouble remembering the titles and authors of books I've read as I don't re-read books except on very small occasions. They also seem to have missed some of the points of the rules, namely that you're not allowed to A) bash on the wiki B)make bashing threads or C) make bashing reviews or D) attack people. You can take shots at Shakespeare all you want as long as you do it in the right areas. That they're part of the "literature has objective quality and all of it should be taught to all students!" crowd means they're probably going to be at odds with me anyway. ~Deboss
- Or you could post a response up on your own Troper page and make vaguely condescending remarks where they'll never see it, because that's totally a much better option. ~ The Malignancy
- Why would I post a response elsewhere? ~Deboss
Your avatar being an ass makes sense in more ways than one. -Daionus the 23rd

Until I read this page, I thought that your avatar was from Bayonetta

I actually agree with you a bit on the Culture Deserves No Support -stuff ~Qeise
There is NO way that your avatar is a guy. No way.
Not even the most overboard
