Okay, well, here goes. I'm Lee, a nerd-of-many-trades from Virginia who watches (or, at least, used to watch) too much TV. I found TV Tropes by way of 4chan, either /tv/ or /co/ (I can't remember which now), way back in 2008.
- Animaniacs (the first Internet fandom I found my way into)
- Homestar Runner
- MS Paint Adventures, specifically Homestuck and Problem Sleuth
- The Simpsons (before about season 9)
- That Guy With The Glasses
- The Nostalgia Critic (mainly the 2007-2010 episodes)
- Atop The Fourth Wall (again, mainly the earlier episodes; I tried re-watching past the "A piece of the world is missing" arc recently [April 2016] and it got old fast)
- Bad Movie Beatdown
- Phelous (I especially like his newer "Bootleg Zones" series)
- The Cinema Snob
- Todd In The Shadows
- Tiny Toon Adventures
- Nintendo games, specifically the Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Kirby franchises. I also really liked the Wii pack-ins, and I've been playing a lot of Splatoon recently. I also have Miitomo on my phone, which is Better Than It Sounds.
Stuff I still like, but haven't paid much attention to recently:
- Azumanga Daioh
- Excel Saga
- Team Four Star
- Yu Gi Oh The Abridged Series
- Anime and anime parodies in general, really; as you can see, I'm a few years behind the times. :P
- Final Fantasy VI
- How Its Made
- Good Eats
Shows I'll watch if I see them on:
- True-crime investigation shows (Forensic Files, Cold Case Files, American Greed, etc.)
- Most sports (I actually don't mind a good game now and then)
Shows and games I wasn't impressed with:
- Deadly Towers. Yes, I actually had this game when it was new, and it was the most infuriating game I ever played. I don't think either me or any of my brothers got past the first level.
- Final Fantasy VII. Still a good game, but not nearly as satisfying as VI was.
- Law And Order SVU of late. It's just plain gotten weird, and there seems to be some Flanderization going on (Stabler is more of a Jerkass than ever). I stopped watching it not long after I first wrote this page, actually.
Things that made me fall in love with TV Tropes:
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?. The Mouse And His Child. My favorite piece of obscure, ponderous 1970s Nightmare Fuel, and you guys knew about it without me mentioning it first. (The movie is so obscure that for years, me and my next-younger brother seemed to be the only people who'd ever seen it; I actually created the IMDb entry for it back in 1997!) This made my day when I first saw it.
- You love Watership Down, too, which also made me incredibly happy.
- Sugar Wiki. An entire namespace devoted to happy, cuddly stuff. Being a hopeless romantic and an unrepentant snugglebug, well, you can guess my reaction. XD
Tropes that apply to myself (or used to, anyway):
- Apologises a Lot (this has been a huge drag on my self-esteem over the years, it turns out)
- Big Eater (if I don't forget about it anyway; I particularly have a bad habit of skipping lunch and stuffing myself at dinner)
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer (I'm a software engineer, so this kind of comes with the territory)
- Cloudcuckoolander (Not as bad as I used to be, but I still have disturbing daydreams and nightmares at times.)
- Gentle Giant
- I Hate Past Me (but doesn't everyone)
- Moeblob (Often to nausea-inducing levels, though this was probably more true in 2010...)
(Note: Apparently this doesn't work anymore! You should go here instead.)
