Hi, I'm Chris, but on TVTropes I'm known as "Sen".

So... me. I was born in 1991 in Romania. As of right now I'm studying international politics in the UK. In my spare time I:
* write music with my trusty Propellerheads Reason, which I upload [[http://www.last.fm/music/PartySan here]]
** I'm also in a band and trying to get another band started
* write silly stories and similar stuff for fun
* listen to stuff
* watch movies/TV/anime/whathaveyou
* read stuff
* play games
* allow teh Interwebs to bring out my inner [[HateDumb raving]] [[FanDumb opinionated]] idiot.
* play NationStates

Small wonder my time management skills are non-existent?

My interests include lots and lots of alternative music, weird, psychological, {{Mind Screw}}y futuristic animes (the first one I watched was ''NeonGenesisEvangelion''... go figure), lots of Sci-Fi in general (big fan o' ''StarWars'', ''[[Film/{{Alien}} Alien, Aliens]]'', ''BladeRunner'' and others), {{Con Lang}}s/{{Con World}}s, and so on.

What can I say... you can easily recognise my style by its awkwardness, excessive details and general painful lack of funny. In fact, the funny on those pages comes from WikiMagic. If you see a comment that tries to be funny but ends up offensive or stupid, chances are it's mine. Sorry 'bout that. My articles in particular tend to vary between severe [[FleetwoodMac word]] [[PrimalScream diarrhea]] and [[DreamPop desperate]] [[PowerPop attempts]] at BeigeProse that [[BikiniKill sometimes]] [[KatrinaAndTheWaves hit]] the mark.

(I have a sense of humour. The problem is that it constantly misfires, and I often have trouble recognising jokes or sarcasm.)

Being a fanboy, I have my moments of suffering OpinionMyopia. They leak into my contributions every once in a while, mostly in the form of whiney bitching. I try to remove those once I step back a bit, think about it and realise there's no point, but I forget some of them because I don't keep track of all my edits. So, er, thanks a lot to anyone who's ever removed my whining.

I have a pretty big collection of music, and just because I love AlternativeRock doesn't mean I'm a ItsPopularNowItSucks guy. Hell, an equal degree of my music collection's taken up by famous and awesome bands like [[{{ACDC}} AC/DC]], LedZeppelin, TheBeatles, BlackSabbath and so on. If you're really curious, [[http://www.last.fm/user/PartySanCTG here's my last.fm profile]]. Oh, and I'm a sortofa rockist? I don't like about 90% of pop music, but hey, SturgeonsLaw - I have a few favourites you could call "pop" (Prince, Wendy & Lisa, The Time, Sheila E., ''90125'' by Yes, etc). I'm predisposed towards rock and ElectronicMusic though.

PostGrunge annoys me a lot. I don't like ''And Justice for All'' - with the exception of "One" it just bores me - and I think The Black Album is the best {{Metallica}} album. I love U2 in TheNineties, when they were all futuristic techno-alternative-rock. I otherwise hate their super-echoey sound (stolen and diluted from the CocteauTwins) and think Bono's an annoying twat. Massive fan of {{Nirvana}} - seeing ''Smells Like Teen Spirit'' on MTV when I was around 5-7 is what turned me on to rock music. I tend to love MyBloodyValentine, {{Slowdive}}, TheBeatles and TheStoneRoses way more than healthy limits. I'm not yet an obsessive ToriAmos, KateBush and PJHarvey fan, but I'm working on getting there.

(As of 19/20 March 2011, I'm also a [[Music/{{Bjork}} Björk]] fan. ''Vespertine'' 4 lyfe.)

I tend to pay more attention to the production of an album and its overall sound. A particular pet peeve of mine as a result of this is the RecordOfLoudnessWar (or as I like to call it when I'm particularly verbose, HFSTEELWSH [[note]]hyper-compressed flat strangled torturous everything-louder-than-everything-else ear-fucking loudness war sonic horseshit[[/note]]). I'm really interested in {{Sampling}} and SampledUp, and it's kind of a BerserkButton for me: people who say that sampling's "unoriginal" and "lazy" because they've just heard mainstream rap can expect to hear me go on a long rant about the BeastieBoys, DJShadow, PublicEnemy and so on.

Re: music, I kinda sorta taught myself to play keyboards and I'm currently learning to play the guitar. I seem to have a weird variation of OncePerEpisode when it comes to guitar practice. Y'know the bass riff from the middle of ToriAmos' "Precious Things"? The one that goes E-E-E-E-D-E-G-D-E-E-E-E-D-E-G-A? That and "Louie Louie" are two riffs I will inevitably play any time I'm in the same vicinity as a guitar.

I'd like to thank TV Tropes for getting me big-time into ''FLCL'', ''TheSandman'', ''{{Nextwave}}'', ''{{Runaways}}'', EmilieAutumn, ''EarthBound'' and others. Thanks, dudes. Especially for ''Earthbound''. That game rocks. Srsly.

And thanks to SoapMagic for the ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and ''AdventureTime'' recommendations!

I can be really opinionated when it comes to music and films, so I better shut up.

I've created quite a few pages for bands:
* TheWho
* {{Megadeth}} (IIRC...)
* {{Primus}}
* GeorgeClinton
* LedZeppelin
* MyBloodyValentine

I partially or completely revamped the YokoKanno, TenaciousD, PJHarvey, FrankZappa, {{Yes}}, VanHalen, CourtneyLove and {{Queen}} pages, among others.

Non-band creator pages I made:
* JamesCameron
* JimmyMiller
* PhilSpector
* LewisTrondheim
* FourADRecords (screwed by naming codes!)
* CreationRecords (MBV freak, comin' through!)

I also created the following trope pages, mostly to do with music:

genres:
* PsychedelicRock
* DreamPop
* {{Shoegazing}}
* NoiseRock
* NoisePop
* PowerPop
* RiotGrrrl
* {{Funk}}
** FunkMetal
* {{Krautrock}}
* {{Blues}}
* BluesRock
* SurfRock

other tropes:
* EpicRocking
* GratuitousPanning
* RecordOfLoudnessWar (title isn't my fault, by the way)
* RecordProducer
* SampledUp
* ReviewerStandardComparisons
* UsefulNotes/{{Moldova}}
* FadingIntoTheNextSong
* FlyTales
* TroubledProduction
* InactionVideo
* MelismaticVocals
* {{Reggae}}

And I contributed to many others, trope, creator or otherwise.

There's also some stuff that got deleted, but who cares about those.

I frequently lurk around the UsefulNotes/{{Romania}} page and try to improve it whenever I can.

Currently in the middle of stuff.

----

Additionally, I've been writing my own things for a long time, but I've only recently grown the balls to actually ''publish'' them (blame {{Tropers/FringeBenefits}} for that, hahahahahaha). So this is the space for them:

* [[http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2842725/1/ The Adventures of Epic Explodinator]] - Probably the first thing I haven't felt ashamed of and deleted after a re-read. So that means this is my first non-OldShame story...
* [[http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2893932/1/Never_Trust_the_Sixties Never Trust the Sixties]] - Micro-story of sorts I bashed out in a hurry late at night.

Something else may show up sometime in the future, depending on how KudzuPlot it gets.
** EDIT: It's grown hugely KudzuPlot and dependent on Microsoft Word PaintingTheFourthWall gimmicks. I'll definitely need another website.

----

Tropes that kind of apply to me:

* FanBoy - [[OldShame I have my moments...]]
* ReferenceOverdosed - I can't write without this.
* BuffySpeak - Despite my not watching that show for a long long time. Guess that's a sign Joss Whedon can write very well... or something.
* [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife TV Tropes Ruined My Life]] - [[TropesAreNotBad In a good way]]. :)
* MustHaveCaffeine - Variation. I drink a lot of Coca Cola.
* AngstAversion - I used to be kind of a whiny emo fucktard as a teenager. This may be why I've developed a sort of allergy to overly serious stuff.
* ComebackTomorrow - Not particularly good at {{Improv}}. So I tend to write them down instead.
* PickyEater - Yeah...
* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: I'm currently recording demos for a band I'm starting with two friends, recording demos for [[http://www.last.fm/music/Oceans+of+Stars a band I want to get off the ground and start looking for bandmembers for]] (if you live in the UK and are interested, please don't hesitate to tell me about it! I'm pretty excited about it...), recording stuff for myself, and writing stuff.
** AttentionDeficitOohShiny - Well, I can be easily distracted.
* ApologisesALot - Sorry about that. Working on doing it less.
* RidiculousProcrastinator - Ayup. It's all fun until I have deadlines for essays breathing down on me...
* NoSocialSkills - This was me until high school. They're still noticeably lagging behind normal people. Even on the Internet.
* PerishingAltRockVoice
* TechnicianVersusPerformer - I guess my habit of learning through mimicry of what I hear and anal obsession with production and specific sounds makes me a technician?
* PerpetualFrowner - Constantly mistaken for this because my default "neutral" expression is very DullSurprise.

Considering that I now live in what TheOtherWiki says is Inner London, my hate for BritainIsOnlyLondon as a PetPeeveTrope has grown geometrically. It might come up in my writings. So I'd like to preemptively apologise to Americans who feel offended.

Sometimes, my true colours as a StrawmanPolitical left-winger with no idea how to argue see the light of day.

Goddamn I talk too much.

!!This is where you tell me about the quality (or lack thereof) of my thingies
* Just want to say that your writing is [[CrazyAwesome brilliantly, gloriously, epically, orgasmically insane]], and you should be proud. ~{{@/FringeBenefits}}
* Do you play bass for people? ~ {{Tropers/SoapMagic}}
* You are probably the first person I've met who has tried to compliment me with logic. - {{Tropers/Wellinever}}
** Oh I see. Buttering me up so you can use my most humiliating moments for personal gain. Well go ahead! See if I care! Just kidding. Go ahead. How much music do you listen to! You like a musaholic. - {{Tropers/Wellinever}}
*** Oh I'm so offended by your comments I'm going to go punch a kitten.
*** Fine, I'll forgive you but I've already done the Kitten punching. It's nose started bleeding and then I got fined by the RSPCA. I hope you're happy.
* Aw Christ, I'd forgotten that [[Tropers/TacoNinja I'd]] made an edit about my unspeakable ugliness. I don't remember half my damn entries. Glad you like the page anyway, I put an inordinate amount of time into it. Thumbs up for liking Mother and Red Dwarf, anyone who likes these are probably awesome.
* Ok, so I just have to say; 1. being Romanian is cool. A very weird compliment, I know.... anyway, 2. YOU HAVE AMAZING TASTE IN MUSIC. That is all. - {{Tropers/Hammerhead}}
* [[{{Tropers/Hammerhead}} Me]] again. Re: music. I saw your tv tropes page. I don't have a last fm (crazy, huh?). But I've been meaning to listen to so many bands in the genres you said I need more of- I just get sidetracked... plus making a list that amounts to literal PAGES of bands and albums I need to listen to ends up being quite intimidating. The main reason I had to write you is because you mentioned Dream Pop, Shoegazing, Noise Rock, Noise Pop, Power Pop, and Riot Grrrl in one breath (figuratively speaking, o' course). Anybody who does that.... well, it just makes my lil' ol' music snob heart all happy n' junk. But that's ok. I know a lot of people don't like her. Though I should say, I actually don't ''completely'' hate Prince... I just hate anything not from ''Dirty Mind'', ''1999'', ''Purple Rain'', and the "Love Symbol" album. Though there are still plenty of songs from those that make me want to gag, too...
* Sorry '''''[[{{Tropers/Hammerhead}} I]]''''' didn't reply faster. To be honest, I tried ''Sign o' the Times''.... and wanted to scratch my ears out. The love symbol album was much easier on my ears. Oh no, it's ok. I mean, I don't want to sound like an ass... it's just my list is already so big... I don't thing I'd ever get to it (out of intimidation) if I added much more. But once I've listened to most of it, I'll come back to you, ok? :P I'm also not a ''huge'' fan of Noise Rock, except for Big Black (even though Steve Albini is kind of douchebag). I wont be on Vacation until my birthday (two weeks-ish). Although if you meant just "out of school", yes I am. I was going to contribute to the Courtney Love page, but then somebody (I think you- didn't check the history) had totally revamped it and added everything I wanted to add when I went back a while later. Also, I'm sorry.... I'm really clogging up your main page.
* You're certainly a very dilligent person. Keep it that way! - @/AmusedTroperGuy
* Worried about being too aggressively opinionated? That happened to me too. How did I solve the problem? [[TakingAThirdOption By endorsing the removal of Real Life examples.]] --@/{{Belfagor}}

I tend to pay more attention to the production of an album and its overall sound. A particular pet peeve of mine as a result of this is the RecordOfLoudnessWar (or as I like to call it when I'm particularly verbose, HFSTEELWSH [[hottip:* :hyper-compressed flat strangled torturous everything-louder-than-everything-else ear-fucking loudness war sonic horseshit]]). I'm really interested in {{Sampling}} and SampledUp, and it's kind of a BerserkButton for me: people who say that sampling's "unoriginal" and "lazy" because they've just heard mainstream rap can expect to hear me go on a long rant about the BeastieBoys, DJShadow, PublicEnemy and so on.

Currently in the middle of nurturing a growing addiction to BuffyTheVampireSlayer (thanks, @/FringeBenefits!), whenever I have enough free time and Buffy wins out over the other interests constantly wrestling for it.

I have a pretty big collection of music, and just because I love AlternativeRock doesn't mean I'm a ItsPopularNowItSucks guy. Hell, an equal degree of my music collection's taken up by famous and awesome bands like [[{{ACDC}} AC/DC]], LedZeppelin, TheBeatles, BlackSabbath and so on. If you're really curious, [[http://www.last.fm/user/PartySanCTG here's my last.fm profile]]. Oh, and I'm a rockist. I don't like about 90% of pop music, but hey, SturgeonsLaw - I have a few favourites you could call "pop" (Prince, Wendy & Lisa, The Time, Sheila E., ''90125'' by Yes, etc). I'm predisposed towards rock and ElectronicMusic though.

Re: music, I kinda sorta taught myself to play keyboards and I'm currently learning to play the guitar. I seem to have a weird variation of OncePerEpisode when it comes to guitar practice. Y'know the bass riff from the middle of ToriAmos' "Precious Things"? That and "Louie Louie" are two riffs I will inevitably play any time I'm in the same vicinity as a guitar.
