Muffit What else flies your geek flag??

Hey folks,

I know you're all fans of Classic Battlestar, but what else are you into?

I refer to myself as an "unapologetic geek" or "fan of style". Basically meaning tha I like what I like and don't apologize for it.

To start off, I'm a fan of many sci-fi shows (and some NOT sci-fi shows as well). They include but are not limited to HOUSE, Doctor Who, Deadwood, Amazing Race, Most Brit-coms, etc.

I also collect stuff. My MAIN collections are: Playmobil (knights and castles theme mostly), H.R. Pufnstuf memorabilia, Viewmaster Reels (of the stories presented with dolls and not the 2-d cartoon ones), Props (mostly battlestar), netsuke boxwood carvings of mice (or rats if you prefer), Soul Of Chogokin die-cast robots from Bandai, and manga works by Osamu Tezuka. I've drifted away from collecting Micronauts/Microman toys in recent times, but I still have a large collection.

I enjoy playing RoboRally, Monopoly, Mah Jongg (real mah jongg... not that computer tile game that amounts to crap), SNOOD, and Pirates of the Spanish Main card-strategy-tabletop game. To name a few.

I also build puppets. I perform them on video. My website is www.puppetforge.com and I post puppet comedy movies for GROWN UPS. I don't do children's parties. Period.

I used to be a fan of the Muppets... until they became the bitches of Disney and were relegated to the back corner of the storage closet (unless, of course, they could be whored out for a commercial or two). I hope that someday the Muppets will regain their self-respect.

And those are the high points.

So what makes YOU all geeky?

Babylon 5
Red Dwarf
Doctor Who
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
Old Hollywood movie serials.
Battlestar Galactica
Rockets-building and flying same.
Constructing the fantastic, making it work, and selling it for a profit..
Wallace and Grommet.
Carlos Mencia ("Dee Dee Dee")
Bashing junk science whether it is Rick Berman Star Drek(TM) Lucas Star Wars Litesaber ("Use the farce, Luke") Goophy Meta Physics(TM) or Al Gore's inflated ego er eco-science (Inconvenient Lie(TM)).

Those are some of my geeky hobbies.

I also like to write-and from the examples I've published (including the fanfiction posted to this forum to SPCGlider's specifications.) I must say poor quality science fiction.

Doctor Who, Blakes 7, Anderson anything (but not the Frake-up imitation),
books by Tanith Lee, Carol Berg, Poul Anderson, Tolkein, Zelazny, Jacqueline Litchenberg,
Artwork by Jim Burns, WD Barlow, and a thousand anonymous book cover artists of the 70s and 80s.
Hanging with fellow geeks in 'current middle ages', history, archeology,
Creative stuff like calligraphy, drawing painting and fanfic..

And a heap more, I'm sure something has to account for a house stuffed full of books and things!!

Cheers,
Lara
