Good day to you.

Once upon a time, there was a large, closely knit herd of wildebeests. One day, during a massive stampede, one young member of the pack got desperately, hopelessly lost. He was eventually adopted by a family of hippies, who, in a drug- induced stupor, mistook it for {{John Lennon}}. The young wildebeest was released into a world of acoustic rock, drugs, free love and psychedelia, and from that point on would be known as the Tye Dye Wildebeest.

And then he got an account on TV Tropes. Just because.


OK, in all seriousness...

I'm the Tye Dye Wildebeest; I'm your average {{Non Action Guy}}/ {{Cloudcuckoolander}} trivia nut with abiding interests in musical theater, comedy, rock music, animation, and, as you would expect, overanalyzing fiction.

[[folder: Tropes That Describe Me]]
* AccidentalPervert: On occasions.
* Adorkable: Some of my friends describe me as this.
* Agnosticism: Though I was raised Jewish.
* ApologizesALot: Sorry if my page isn't exciting enough so far.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Justified, in that I actually DO have ADD.
* AwesomeMcCoolname --@/EarlOfSandvich
* TheBabyOfTheBunch: I was the youngest and least experienced student in my grad school class, probably because I was one of the few who started the program straight out of college.
* BadassBaritone: Subverted. My voice does register as a baritone, but I sure as hell ain't a badass.
* BerserkButton: Any kind of bigotry or prejudice will get me steamed, but ableism, homophobia and misandry piss me off the most.
* BigOlEyebrows: Downplayed. They're not ''huge'', but they're very... defined. They pop out.
* CatchPhrase: Lately I've taken to saying, "Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy..." whenever I'm distressed.
* CloudCuckoolander: Not all the time, but I definitely have my moments. For instance, in a play I was recently in, we had originally planned to use a cardboard box as a prop for one of the scenes. My director decided that we didn't need it, and he told me that we were 'cutting' the prop (as in, removing it from the final production). After he told me, I spent the next five minutes [[LiteralMinded looking around for a box cutter]].
* FunnyAfro: Well, technically, it's a jewfro.
* GoodWithNumbers: I took AP Physics as a high school sophomore and ended up acing the final exam (though I did have to study my ass off to reach that point).
* GuiltComplex: It's kind of a problem I have... whenever I see someone unhappy, I instinctively think that it's somehow my fault.
* JewishAndNerdy
* LargeHam: I have a habit of lapsing into this from time to time on stage. It's actually a bit of a problem; I need to learn how to be more subtle.
* NonActionGuy: Yeah, I'm pretty weak. I am quite a good fencer, though.
* NiceGuy: Well, I try to be, at least.
* OneOfUs: Well, you're yeah.
* PluckyComicRelief (sayeth [[@/{{sgrunt}} me]])
* SillyMeGesture: In my case, it takes the form of lightly smacking my forehead.
* {{Squee}}: I catch myself doing this way, way more often than I should.

The best part of waking up... is acid in your cup.

It's hard to be religious when certain people are never incinerated by bolts of lightning.

Set out running but I take my time, a friend of the devil is a friend of mine...

Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face!

Riddle me this: if you aim to give us a shot, we'll riddle you. What are we?

If you need to put other people down in order to empower yourself, you're absolutely pathetic.
