I’m a thoroughly geeky guy who has very recently entered his thirties. This means I grew up in what seems like the “Golden Age of Saturday Morning Cartoons.” Seriously, Transformers, He-Man, Thundercats, you name it, I probably watched it. I’m similarly enamoured with videogames, having cut my teeth on platforms like the Sinclair Spectrum, Sega Master System, and the Super Nintendo. I loved playing games as a kid, and I love playing them now just as much, if not more.
I like comic books, too: mostly superhero comics, but I’ve also enjoyed more quirky fare like DC’s Vertigo line in the 90s and books like Fell by Warren Ellis and Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse by Ben Templesmith. After way too long spent watching nothing but genre movies, I’m also starting to become a movie buff, albeit a rather part time one.
If you haven’t guessed, the plan is to make this a rather geekery-heavy blog. It won’t all be videogames and comics though, as I’m also interested in technology, social media, politics – I’m rather liberal by the way – and diversity issues. Oh, and amateur dramatics: I’m part of my local amateur dramatics society,
So yeah, that’s a little bit about me, and what I plan to write about. It’s by no means an exhaustive list – I spend a lot of time online, so I often come across things that interests me – but it’s a start.
EDIT: Oh yeah, I also play table top RPGs. I’ve been playing them for nearly twenty years. I’m not sure how I forgot to mention that.
