my mind rebels at stagnation.
My usual fandoms are Inception, Doctor Who (reading only), Alice in Wonderland (Burton-verse and SyFy-verse), Sherlock Holmes (books, Guy Ritchie, and BBC's 2010 Sherlock), and Harry Potter. I dip in and out of Zelda and Pokemon. I’m quite willing to beta-read for any of these fandoms, except Doctor Who.
I’m a musician, a gamer, and a writer. I’m
I have amazing friends and I consider myself very lucky to have graduated from the school I did, and been accepted into the university I was -- studying music and majoring in composition. My dream job(s) would be either writing for a living, or composing music for film.
Having said that, my favourite composers (and my idols) are John Williams, Chopin, Shostakovich, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Stuart Greenbaum, Eric Whitacre and Gustav Holst. Usually, I prefer listening to romantic, baroque, 20th-century and film scores (I class film scores by themselves, because I’m of the opinion that it takes a very different set of skills to create an effective film score).
However, ‘classical’ music aside, I love soul, jazz, funk (Maceo Parker is a GOD on the alto), and have been known to dabble in rock from time to time. I’m expanding my listening, too; a friend has gotten me hooked on Shapeshifter, a NZ drum and bass group, and since then I have been known occasionally to listen to dubstep, and various other forms of music I used to abhor. I find it interesting finding all the parallels between the different genres. Anyway, that about sums up my music, which pretty much nearly sums up me.
My favourite authors are Tolkien, J.K Rowling, Tamora Pierce, Isobelle Carmody and David Eddings. I was absolutely crushed when I found out that Eddings had passed away… I’d always wanted to meet him. R.I.P. :(
