    I tried to watch the new blade runner, but it's not in theaters where I live. Wasn't even in theaters for a month here.

    Apparently it's doing bad in the box office.

    What's the story behind your username?

    Pan Sonic was an experimental band from Finland. Lots of custom made synths and weird, textural soundscapes made from analog gear. This Iranain computer science nerd named Farhad turned me onto them when we were both hosting radio shows in college many years ago. I heard their album "A" and lost my goddamn mind.

    I grew out of it eventually but when I registered on the old INTP site, I was still way deep into Pan Sonic. I put the _000 at the end for some reason I can't remember. Maybe it was just an effort to be interesting.

    Don't have much in the way of hobbies at present. Although in my younger days I spent a lot of time drawing, creating and maintaining fitness.
    Spend most my time keeping up with current events, politics and policy. Keeps me entertained.

    What are some books and movies you've enjoyed?

    I don't remember. It was a long time ago, but it wasn't mind blowing enough to lodge itself.

    What are your preferred topics of discussion?

    Games, stories, story-telling, life, death, what happens between life and death. It's easier to sort out what I definitely don't like talking about as one of the things I like about myself is my ability to find a left field angle to turn what would be a boring topic for me into something more interesting.

    Which country do you live in? Have you lived in other countries?

    I live in the US. I've been to a couple other countries (Mexico, Canada, Bahamas) but never lived there.

    What languages do you speak?

    English, a fair amount of maths, some Mandarin, less Japanese, enough Spanish to wash dishes.

    Which age demographic do you relate to the most?

    I have no idea.

    What are some of your hobbies and interests?

    Deconstructing stories, reading, anime, comic books (though less so than when I was younger), biking, hiking, hallucinogens, games in general.

    What are some books and movies you've enjoyed?

    I grew up reading Heinlein, Piers Anthony (before he got all soft and shit), Asimov, PKD, Frank Herbert, Saberhagen, and dozens of others. I generally prefer science fiction and fantasy, though Elmore Leonard makes a strong case for contemporary settings. I prefer stories that make me laugh or that drag me through the mud with the protagonist.

    As for movies, my taste is similar to that of my taste in books, with one notable exception: I enjoy really really bad movies much much more than I can enjoy a badly written book. I also enjoy artsy movies that I probably wouldn't tolerate as a book. Stuff with drawn out meaningful silence--that's something that's difficult to even get across in a book, but in a movie, it can be a mutual experience. You feel the same suspense and rambling thoughts that the characters feel as the that silence stretches out. You can feel the same awkwardness as they fidget with their hands or evade eye contact. But in a book, that sort of experience is there and gone in a moment, because when nothing is happening, nothing is written. Even if you spend that time detailing the thoughts of a character, there's no way to convey the agony of the passing moments as those thoughts are explored, nor to adequately imply how long those thoughts too to cogitate. Any emotion relying on timing and pauses is significantly harder to convey in prose than it is with film.

    What kind of music do you listen to?

    Whatever suits my mood. But it tends toward rock and electronic music. That said, I like classic country and big band swing. In the right context, a four piece jazz band is perfect. Cellos are among my favorite instruments.

    What's the story behind your username?

    Hephaestus was unique among the [Greek] gods in his physical ugliness. He was also unique in his level of creativity--he was the only god who never stopped creating as part of his very nature--as opposed to the many gods who never stopped procreating. Of the Greek gods, I would say he was the one I could most identify with. He was also the least rapey and most civilized and adult of the gods, but that might just be due to not getting a lot of stories written about him.
    Edit: interesting info. Thorough. Btw concerning my original post I don't actually read sci-fi much. Nope. It's partly that I can't sit for long and partly limited frame of reference. I occasionally post bs requests for suggestions/advice just to solicit some kind of amusing response. I guess I'm trying to satisfy a craving for interactivity. I'll learn something then find people who are expertly, and I dunno, use them to fill my knowledge gaps. Or just interface clumsily. I've been pooping a lot lately too. I just sit there in my own stench contemplating nothing. It relaxes me. I'm quite boring. Been thinking about catfishing a middle aged woman on craftbooking forum. Seems like that'll better meet my needs. Make up some backstory and post fake pics. String her along then tell the truth for kicks. Stupid T.V. show btw. There I go monologging.

    I hope someone out there reads this. I hope I bring value to someone's life. I just want to be loved or ignored. Hm. Airport H2O @ 3.29 per 16 ounce a bottle sounds about right. I'm in a restaurant drinking it for free instead.

    Bye now.
