Tropers: Hammerhead
19 year old Film Major in Seattle, WA. I don't use this site much anymore, save for pages on my favorite works, and for the SBIG/SBIH subsections. Everything else is filled with too much censorship, or mind numbing Fan Myopia (Because, you know, The Rules of the Game doesn't need a work page, but Miracle Maid Himiko-chan does).

Tropes applying to him:

Below, I shall try to encompass many of my favorite things. Brace yourself.

    open/close all folders 


A note: While I consider all of this favorites, I don’t necessarily consider them all ‘the best’ - rather, they are films which had an extreme amount of influence on me.

Please Add tropes that you think apply to me and/or Vandalize HERE:
I vandalized first. I feel accomplished. RainbowDust

Really? Thanks! I never got complimented for that before, so I... yeah. The country has its drawbacks, but... thanks! :) Re: taste, is it due to the TV Tropes list or my profile? Well, I guess we have something in common, even though I tend to feel stupid for overdoing the MUSIC IS SRS BSNS angle. Ya mind if I linkified some of your links? But yeah, there is some overlap in taste, so yers is good too! Could use more shoegazing/neopsychedelia. You hate Prince? Well, no problem, I viciously hate Björk. And some other bands that aren't on your list and aren't worth a mention, hahaha. XD - Sen

Sorry for taking so long to get back, I'm on vacation now and the Internet access gets pretty erratic. And yes, I know what you mean, I think Prince suddenly went to the shitter starting in The Nineties. Is thinking Batman is his last good album crazier than not having a profile? :) TBH I was surprised you said Love Symbol instead of the usual Sign o' the Times, but hey, I totally wrecked up the Prince page once, so you prolly know my bias against his nineties stuff. (also agreed, he can be pretty frustrating to listen to sometimes.) If you want, I can either try helping with that list, or you can just skim my library, 'cos it's pretty large, innit? Heheheh. I'm pretty happy at your favourite bands list too! Just wish I could like Slint even more than I already do... Also TBH I don't really like noise rock, I just went through a phase of trying it. Much prefer noise pop or really loud neo-psychedelia. XD So, you on vacation too? :) PS I think at one point you said you were planning on contributing to the Courtney Love page? How'd that work? - Sen

Now I need to apologise for taking another month to reply. Sorry! Shit happens. :) Yeah, I meant out of school - 'cos I am as well right now. And you're right, your list is already hugeish. Probably bigger than mine at points, ROFL! I think I did the Courtney Love revamp, IIRC. Don't worry, I clog up yours too. >:) Well, have fun troping! Oh, and happy birthday in advance/lateness! XD - Sen

Hi! -Indigo12ash

I'm just happy to find another troper who is also appalled by this site's censorship. Best to you. -Alrune
