you know i had to do this one
from the llama butchers, a meme titled "what makes you a geek
?" where geek is defined as having way more knowledge than the general population about something that is of little interest to everyone else. and it has to be something you enjoy, not the details of your last colonoscopy or the depths of your crappy hamburger flipping job.
so, i'm sure i have at least ten, let's see what i come up with:
1. tech theater. not movies, but real theater, and not acting, but the backstage stuff; lights, sound, set.
2. comic books. i'm not even going to get more specific than that, there's too many to list
3. horror movies. both old ones and newer ones, from lugosi to romero to the ring.
4. computers and tech. i'm actually an aspiring geek on this one, i know enough to build my own box but am working on learning more, in hopes of becoming a professional computer geek. but i won't get more specific than just "computers", it'd be too long to list everything i know or want to know something more about.
5. fiction, especially horror books and fantasy books. stephen king (i've read every book he's written, even danse macabe), stephen donaldson, r.a. salvatore, david and leigh eddings, and so many more. classical lit, shakespeare, kafka. and so many others, douglas adams, george orwell, ayn rand, this list could very well go on forever, i love to read.
6. cars, especially mine.
7. military. just can't help it, love military stories, military humor, and insights about life in the military.
8. clint eastwood. especially the man with no name trilogy.
9. roleplaying games. mostly tabletop and neverwinter nights online.
10. writing. fiction and non.
that covers probably what i probably have the most knowledge of, but other stuff not on the short list, although it could be: art, guns, politics (obviously), monty python, security, pittsburgh bars, beer and wine, occult religions, pittsburgh sports and general armchair quarterbacking, american history, latin, ancient history, the crow movies and stories, the matrix movies...give me five minutes and i'll think of a ton more, i have interest and some knowledge about a wide variety of stuff, but i'm too much of an intellectual butterfly to really focus on one thing. just really like reading about and learning about all kinds of stuff.
