    Books: I won't bother trying to list my favourite books. Usually they're science fiction, but I love all genres, including nonfiction.

    Some TV shows I like:
    The Twilight Zone
    Twin Peaks
    Get Smart
    The Monkees
    Doctor Who
    My Little Pony
    My Favourite Martian
    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    The Outer Limits
    Surely there are others.

    Some movies that I very much loved that come to mind:
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Napoleon Dynamite
    Star Wars movies
    The Harry Potter movies
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Groundhog Day
    Mr Nobody
    October Sky
    The Party
    Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movies
    A lot of old movies (including silent films)
    More, I'm sure, that escape my mind…

    Music. I like music. I also like nonsense that somehow manages to be more beautiful than excellently crafter music, for example the default Cisco call manager hold tone.

    Other things are awesome too, like Cabin Pressure (and really anything written by John Finnemore). Oh, and dreams. And science, philosophy, metaphysics, writing, reading, mountains, weird internet stuff, getting sucker punched by nostalgia.....

    I'm also currently studying physics as an undergrad. Ridiculously cool, and very good at robbing me of sleep (or is that procrastination?).

  1. I honestly lost it at "open mic night," and laughed solidly through the rest...I haven't laughed this hard in ages. Thank you for this! A+ work! xD
  2. There's so much magnificence here...I was drawn most to 2, 4, and 7, and making that final decision was tough, but I had to settle for Nitrui. Awesomely simple colour scheme, great structure.
  3. My hair turned grey just from reading this topic. Please someone get me a walker and a hearing aid At least I still have four months until I'm 20...
  4. Awesome, has a very G1 feel while still going beautifully with what we've seen of Okoto! I'm really digging the Region Of Earth theme (hahaha sorry bad pun). =)
  5. Hot dang, that was terrific! I love your prose, the way you describe everything...it's very tangible, but also streamlined. Oftentimes when I'm reading a story I have to kind of nudge myself onward, but with this, it would have taken quite an effort to tear myself away.
  6. Wow. "Impressed" does no justice to my current state of being. I'm awed, in love...I just want to keep looking at him. And he's even got the Island of Mata Nui on his face! Your use of different shades of brown and grey also gives a good effect of layering and detail. And the face...*shakes head in awe* =)
  7. Ah, hey fellow WriMos! How's it going for you guys now that we're almost two thirds of the way through? Lately I've been falling behind a bit due to school (why must it be in November of all months...the busiest part of the semester DX). I wasn't sure whether I wanted to participate NaNoWriMo, but about a week before, during my fall break, I suddenly got a fresh batch of inspiration for an old story that I wanted to write but didn't have a strong enough plot for. It features a terraforming colony, first contact with alien life (in the form of unicellular organisms), and spaceships. Although right now it's an unholy mess that nobody should ever be burdened with reading; my writing style is all over the place, same with the plot and characters, and the list of things I'm going to have to go back and change after I get this first draft finished is probably as long as the novel itself XD...but I guess they do always say that the first draft is pretty much supposed to be a pile of nonsense. I like all three of your ideas, but this one is my favourite! Unfortunately I don't really have any ideas for fleshing them out right now...how are they coming along? Anyhow. Back to writing that lab report, and hopefully being able to meet the minimum word count for today (before I fall even farther behind)... =)
  8. Worse than the Good Guys?? I think not. Is chocolate the greatest substance in existence? (Hint: there's only one answer).
  9. Oh...oh my, your attention to detail, the small yet wholly solid build is just stunning. I really can't decide which part of him I like the most. Though if you hadn't specified who it was, I'd assume he was Onepu, rather than an OC. But he really looks mechanical, with the details. And the magnifying glass eye is simply brilliant. Looks like a steampunk monocle. =)
  10. The Mordagogg was awesome, I cannot deny, but I was, for some inexplicable reason, drawn to the Garu Garu. =)
  11. I love Classic Space so much...and the neo classic space look with all the greeble and bulk and suchlike just works perfectly. Everything fits into place without any awkward gaps. Everything looks so...real. I absolutely love it. The only thing that looks odd to me is how thin the cockpit and fuselage is. This kind of clashes with the flat look of CS, and, IMO, looks like you made a more natural looking model, then did a mirror image of slightly less than half of it. But that's a matter of personal style rather than any objective issue. =)
  12. This guy looks adorable. I especially love his face - the way you did the lower jaw. Makes him look like he's smiling contentedly. =)
  13. I honestly cannot speak more highly of their of the models - they are simply awesome. I really love the classic space themes - which Ice Planet may or may not marginally fit into - regardless, it has the same aesthetic, which you have done a wonderful job capturing. They could easily be real sets. I like the solidity of the original design, both in its colour scheme and structure, which makes it look more like a set. I also love the more detailed design of the newer version, which looks more realistic and seems to have more play features. I think I am overall in favour of the new version, but it's a close call. Either way, I would gladly support this project. =)
