Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la, The Magical Mystery Tour
Hello, and welcome to my home page. It's a little messy and cluttered
right now, hope you don't mind. I've been somewhat slow getting into
this World Wide Web thing, but then I've been connected to the
Internet for something like 6 years now. I cut my teeth on Unix(tm)
operating systems, and learned to negotiate the net via FTP and telnet
pretty early. So, by the time the Web came up, I didn't see the
point. Add to that the fact that the only interface available to me
at the time was annoyingly point-and-click'y and it adds up to making
the Web something not very worthwhile.
Still, I've come around since then. Some of the things I've been
forced to check out by friends have brought me around. Also, I've
lost my graphics terminal capability (at least temporarily), so my web
browser du jour has become lynx, which is much more cryptic. I like
So, that's my web background, but you don't really care about any of
that, you're more concerned with what my interests are, right?
"What kind of people are we?" - Dr. Leonard McCoy
This is the part where I list what interests me, and if it interests
you, than hey, drop me a line, perhaps we can discuss them.
There's all kinds. There's the schlocky monster movie from the
'50s. There's the cheesy science fiction movie with snazzy special
effects. There's the cheesy science fiction movie with incredibly lame
special effects. There's the somewhat offensive (if you're inclined to
be offended by such things) teensploitation flicks. I like 'em all. If
a movie stars
Robert Vaughn or Sybil
Danning, it's sure to please.
That's not to say I don't like other movies. I do. I also have an
unfortunate habit of watching movies I like several times. A side
effect of this is, if I happen to see a movie more than about 4 or 5
times, I have it memorized. Completely. That's why my speech
patterns tend to be corrupted by movie quotes. Sorry about that.
I try to fill my spare time with creative endeavors, ranging from
writing, to role-playing, to acting. I don't draw, but that's mostly
because I lack skill. If you know of a good way to become a
self-taught artist, let me know, eh?
One of my more famous creative efforts is called USFP, the Universal
Science Fiction Parody. It is currently incomplete, but I hope to
start work on it again soon. Damn that procrastinator. Anyway, there
should be a web version of it available here.
Another piece of writing of mine, well, not exclusively mine but I did
help, is called the Neverending
Saga. This is a misnomer of sorts. We did finally end it.
There's ample introduction to it there, so you can have a look
yourself. My parts are listed under TOOZDAY.
Some other things you probably want to ought to know about me. I'm
FRIGGIN' HUGE! Six and a half feet tall. Five feet around. I'm not
kidding. Really, I am. I usually like to get that out right up
front, since I believe it's had an effect on the kind of person I am.
I've always been big. So, really, my personality could develop one of
two ways. A) Brutish, obnoxious louse. B) Jolly, great wackmobile.
Fortunately, I've managed to land myself firmly in column B.
Oh, and here
is a link to pages I've found that are interesting.
I have a number of E-mail addresses you can reach me at:
Ed. Note: Obviously, these don't work any
more... they're left here for historical purposes. --G.
Well, that just about covers everything for know. I'll probably
improve this page as I become more accustomed to it.
Go back to Sidehack now.
