Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.

- animals, dinosaurs, nature, history... basically I'm the type that would happily live in a museum
- bird watching (though thanks to this hobby I'm amazed squirrels aren't on the top of any 'smartest animals' list)
- science fiction (both 'grounded' and purely whimsical), fantasy, mythology
- horror... to a degree. Monsters and surrealism as opposed to blood and guts -- think: Colour out of Space, The Enigma of Amigara Fault, the Doctor Who episode "Midnight" (which are all really hard to summarize without sounding stupid)


OMG, Junji Ito's 'Enigma of Amigara Fault'! I adore Junji Ito's horror manga! :D

'Enigma' was pretty good, but the one that scared me the most...I can't remember the title, but Ito also did it...it's about a person in an apartment complex who realizes they have a rather unusual neighbor, and without spoiling anything, things go rapidly downhill from there. Absolutely terrifying!

Aside from Internetizining, lemme see.

* Movies and pop culture and such. Generally sci-fi, action, or comedy. If it has goons in it, I'm all in.
* Fitness. I'm into running, but this inflamed muscle in my knee is getting in the way right now. Stupid knee. Stupid muscles. Stupid knee muscles.
* Paranormal stuff. I don't know if I believe in it and I've never seen a ghost, but I think the idea is really awesome.
* Physics.
* The big one is writing. I write a comedy/superhero/future series. In fact, I'm trying to get it published via crowdfunding. If you're into Spaceballs and X-Men, give the link in my signature a try. The series is a mashup of qualities of the two.
* And, as lame as it sounds, I like organizational ideas. Weird, I know. And that's probably as best as I can define it. Notice I didn't boldface that one. That'll be our little secret.

Your crowdfunding project is brilliant. I've just taken a quick glance and it looks really cool. As soon as I get some extra cash within your fundraising period I'll be sending you a bit of cash over. You've also sparked my interest about your organisational ideas... do you put women's lingerie in a special order in stores?

Thanks, man! That actually means a lot! :D I'm still in the process of spreading the word, so if you have any ideas on where to go, I'm all ears. These campaigns are all about word of mouth, and they're made or broken on how much hype they get.

Aha. Now this is a tricky one. Women's lingerie is cagey, but I give a three-session lecture on the subject. My next class starts in April and it includes anything from the tame underwear to wacky dominatrix stuff.

I'm definitely going to scrape the funds to help kickstart this.

Uh, outside of lurking seibs, posting on random other message boards, I enjoy:

-Cars. It's my dream to own a 2nd gen CTS-V and a 1969 GTO (or at least sit in one). I already got to sit in my dream car (an 09 SLS AMG black edition)

-I have a deep love of all things astronomy. If I wasn't currently doing pre-medicine, I'd probably try and work an angle to work at an observatory.

-Like I said earlier, I'm currently studying Biological Sciences for pre-medicine, if I can swing a Chemistry minor out of the deal, I plan on it. I'm planning on being a Physician Anesthesiologist.

-I like watching NCIS, Law & Order: SVU, House, Adventure Time, & Regular Show. But I don't have the time for that because of the previous bullet point.

-Badminton. I destroy people at this game.

You guys are the best! The way to make this work is, yeah, to invest in it, but also spread the word. If everyone tells a friend who tells a friend who tells a friend, etc., the law of averages works its magic. So if you guys know anybody or a Facebook group or another site, pass the word by directing them to the link! Big thanks to anyone who does or who donates!

(I hope I'm not overstepping my boundaries by talking about this. I PMed Ryan a few days ago about saying something on Seibertron about the campaign, but I haven't heard back. So I hope this is allowed since the conversation progressed here. Don't want to step on any toes, though. Sorry sorry sorry. :oops: )

I can't imagine why it would be a problem for him to promote a member as it would no doubt reflect favourably on Seibertron having a celebrity author for a member! Just remember where you came from. ;)
