About Me

Hello and Ahoj, name's Matt, I'm a computer guy and engineer. I really enjoy tinkering with electronics, hiking/backpacking, I play guitar, and travel (quite a lot).

Favorite Books

1984, Dune, Alice, anything Michael Chrichton, Stephen King, Dinotopia and more (impossible to list everything...)

I love Dr. Seuss and I have quite a nice collection of his books which I've picked up on my travels since they dont actually exist here. I have about 25 of them and always looking for more (in hardcover preferably, unless its a first print)

Movies/TV

SCI-FI!! Favorites include Stargate, Dune, Alien, Blade Runner, Back to the Future, Terminator, Jurassic Park. Other favorites include True Blood, Futurama, Simpsons, The Office, Rick & Morty, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit.. But sorry, not a Game of Thrones fan here..

Disney is much appreciated. Dr. Seuss also.

David Lynch..! Quentin Tarantino.

Návštěvníci (automatic 5 stars if you know this)

Anime: Gundam (giant fighting robots!!!), Fullmetal Alchemist, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and everything Hayao Miyazaki.

I like comic books but I don't really like comic book movies... Except Tim Burton's Batman, Batman Returns.. Which are masterpieces.

On Arts & Crafts

For swapping, ATC's.

More generally, Painting, Figurines/Models, Street Art, Pencil/Charcoal Drawing, and of course fiddling and meddling with Electronics (is that a craft?).

My favorite art styles are Art Nouveau/Art Deco and Baroque.

General Interests

I love cooking and eating all food from everywhere.

I love electronics, but not those seemingly useless random gizmos you see all the time nowadays.. I rather prefer "old school" tech.. Radios, calculators, tape, VCR, old computers/video games, video game consoles.. because they seem to serve a purpose and they are "simple" enough to wrap your head around.

I love nature and I go hiking very often.

I love traveling. I've been to 32 US States and 14 European States (15 if you include Vatican) + Costa Rica. I would love to see India, South America, and Africa if only I had more time and money.. hmm...

Games

We love board games in the Czech Republic. All of them. Catan, Carcassonne, Jenga, Battleship, CaH, Triviador, and so on.

My favorite video games are from Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64 titles (Mario!), and for PC i like RPGs (Neverwinter Nights, Morrowind, Everquest immediately come to mind). Also SimCity / Rollercoaster Tycoon and similar. I'm not really interested in video games newer than, say, 2005, except Minecraft.

Things I'd Like

I always love getting recipes and trying them out.

I am still trying to collect more crafty things.. unique pens, cardstock, etc. We don't exactly have Michael's or Hobby Lobby in the Czech Republic.. Just Google Papírnictví.... There's just no comparison..

I like getting stuff that is unique to places. It's interesting to see what is "normal" for people in some place, but exotic or strange to any others.

Comment: Oooh, 3 bookmarks! :D I'm a huge Eric Northman fan, so I like that one best for the picture, but I like the writing you put on the Bil & Sookie one. Thanks also for the hero clicks! Someone gave me a few awhile ago (Nightcrawler and The Flash) but this zombie is epic. His foot it on backwards!! :D

Also look over my profile for other groups I am in and see if any of those are of interest as well! have great not-so-boring day, ok? :-)

My brother-in-law has some very odd musical tastes that involve orchestral/classical and death-metal. Turned me on to Therion some years back.
I am not opposed to private swaps. Hope all is well!
