Instructables [a DIY/how-to on EVERYTHING]

About Me

My name's Sssargon. I have a BA in Studio Art and am currently studying animation, and have a job giving horse-drawn carriage tours. I have a wonderful girlfriend and a brilliant dog. I like quirky, bizarre, or hilarious things, and just generally enjoy life...always try to have a good time. I'm a fan of mail, and of giving things to people, so swapbot works out pretty well for me.

Favorite Music

Anything with a good beat, really, but I'm not a fan of most rap, and like even less country music. Other than that I have an eclectic taste. My current favourite songs are "Heart of the Ocean" by Gaelic Storm, "The Boys are Back in Town" by Thin Lizzy, and "Ramble On" by Led Zeppelin. Led Zep is my favourite band, but I like a ton of others too, in a variety of genres. Mountain Goats are also good, as in Jonathan Coultan, Voltaire, David Bowie, They Might be Giants, etc etc etc I also really like lots of different international music. Seriously, anything with a good sound. Or interesting lyrics. Or both!

Favorite Books

"The Name of the Wind" (and upcoming sequels) by Patric Rothfuss, The Gentleman Bastard series (starting with "The Lies of Locke Lamora") by Scott Lynch, The "Song of Ice and Fire" series by GRR Martin, "Crime and Punishment" by Dostoevsky, "Candide" by Voltaire, "Don Quixote" by Cervantes, "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams, and "Lord of the Rings" by JRR Tolkien

Favorite Movies

Iron Man, Darjeeling Limited, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, The National Treasure movies, Star Wars, Emperor's New Groove, etc I'll watch just about anything that's interesting, even if it's crazy or terrible. I'm also a big fan of the horrible old horror flicks that Christopher Lee is in.

Favorite Television

Robin Hood (BBC), Lost, House, Crusoe, Psych, Cheers, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Mythbusters, Law and Order (Original and SVU), Star Trek, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Futurama, Family Guy, Avatar: Last Airbender, and Tudors. Favourite animes include Kyou Kara Maou, Detective Academy Q, Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Monster, Yakitate Japan, GTO, Full Metal Panic, and Evangelion.

Other Things I Like

||| Steampunk related things
||| Owls, Foxes, Vultures, and Crocodiles
||| Dangerous animals in general
||| Those Fell Beasts from Lord of the Rings!
||| Greens, browns, dark reds...usually any earthy tone...I also love orange and yellow

||| I have a strange fondness for paisleys, tartan/plaid, and...du-wop music
||| Anything Robin Hood at all
||| Robots, robotics, robotic animals
||| Computers and technology
||| I have an obsession with fools and jesters, especially any history related to them
||| Camping, outdoor survival, navigation, sailing ships, astronomy
||| Reading, writing, drawing, animating, and anything related
||| Crazy science or nature things
||| Hats!
||| Soft things (pillows, blankets, stuffed animals)
||| Dungeons and Dragons
||| Video games (Wii and Playstations one and two and Game Boy Color)
||| Time.
||| Maps.
||| Ships.

Things I Don't Really Like

||| Pink, or pastel colours
||| monkeys
||| any kind of cosmetics, cologne, perfume, soaps, artificially smelly things
||| anything girly
||| most jewelery (necklaces are okay though)
||| GLITTER (my no. 1 enemy)
||| dotees kinda creep me out
||| gummy candy
||| mangos, bananas, lychees, yellow cheeses
||| anything extremely religious

||| that's about it...I'm not terribly picky

Wish List

||| Patterned origami paper or similar scraps
||| Mixed CDs
||| Interesting, bizarre, or cool-looking ads (out of magazines or whatever)
||| Bandannas
||| Tea
||| Those little rectangular tabs at the top of tea bags

Haha, I'll check it out. And yes, I am dying on the inside every day that Dance of Dragons doesn't come out. I swear he's going to pull an RJ and die on us before he finishes the series, and then I'm going to flip out! Thanks for the confirmation and thanks for the comment! \o/
