Role Play Gaming (I referee, with a friend, a "Pulp" campaign in which a "homage" to Indiana Jones is a Non Player Character) comics, movies and reading (also participating in discussions on websites dedicated to these interests).
Wow. I am glad that the Raven has deckard24, Insomniac and 00Kevin around to protect us from sharks and other such scary beasts of terror!
My obsessions would be:
- Star Wars
- Indiana Jones
- Harrison Ford movies
- Shia Lebeouf
- Farscape, Stargate, Sliders and other Sci-Fi tv shows
- Hanging out at the Raven with you guys
- Writing fanfiction and original stories
I'm especially in certain film/book types: dystopia, lawfirm thrillers (by the way, I heard there gonna make a sequel of Wall Street, based on the current economic and banking crisis).
Although Star Wars has long been my favorite passtime, I've become to be way more involved in European policy and just international relations in general. After Episode III, the chapter closed a bit... the Clone Wars animated series was pretty cool, but not the same. I hope the live-action series will make me jump on the edge of my seat again!
I adore travelling and Middle America and South America and offshore uninhabited islands are still locales I must venture. Part because I could literally die watching sunsets and dusky tropical athmospheres and splintering sunrays; with breezes shaking up the palmtree-lined coastline. When I get old, I'd just live at a seaside shack of wood and bamboo (but rather away from those crazy hurricanes!) somewhere, and light a couple hanging lanterns on the elevated first floor terrace with vines :-) ... (no need to mention I'm sort of a romantic at times) and enjoy a book - or just the company of a soulmate on that porch in a rocking chair... But first I've got my whole life ahead of me
I try to workout at the gym whenever I can, trying to forget my blues as it's crisis and in the professional branch I'd like to work in, competition for young graduates is mighty tough... I'm thinking of adding another year in a university in London first (that I can *afford*, my folks are no bankers or surgeons or lawyers).
Soundtracks (God, how could I live without them!) soothe my sorrows and are manna to my soul. I also like typical Latin American music... Federico Aubele - which I only recently discovered - is ranked highly in my book.
I like dancing too... I'm really a power animal on the floor if people let me
Especially when rumba/samba/... tunes set the tone, there comes the euphoria rush - know what I mean
Humor in general gets the best out of me... and cool parties that have this sense of timelessness... but down here in rainy Belgium you don't often get to do beach parties... I am definately going to Greece again in the summertime (and likely Italy again as well)... Only, I'll have to see if I can have a holiday while I'm hoping to start work (clerk at justice dept., but for a job for which I'm overqualified a bit and the salary... heck, is anyways better than benefits ).
When I was a little kid my Dad and this outher guy had a comic book shop in my home town but they had a falling out and the comic shop is no more and lucky me I got the entire inventory of the store. I got boxes and boxes of coimcs.
I also like to play the drums. I am in a crappy little band called the Bon Airs.
You can go here and listen to my band. We suck. The guitar player and the bass player are Members of the Raven to.
