Solemn demeanor; apologizing in advance.
Wanderer, vigilante, dojo buster, all-around hunter of the supernatural, and proud Mythical Beast—which means should you have any resident ghosts in need of karate-chopping, my services are available.
A once inner-city youth who, having eventually escaped his concrete prison, never quite recovered from excursion's call.
Born during the year of the fire tiger—which means I'm old enough to have a pog collection buried in the dark corner of a closet somewhere far, far away.
I'm fond of all things botanical/mycological—particularly carnivorous or poisonous varieties. (Save the bees.)
I've been known to walk long distances and love to travel or explore areas isolated by nature. (Still waiting on Sean Connery to show up and tell me I'm immortal.)
I prefer damp weather, evenings, and look forward to autumn each year (follow moon phases).
Traditional martial arts in general are important.
Personally favor styles of kung-fu that lean toward internal>external but not completely (i.e. seven star praying mantis).
Weaponry—excluding firearms—is a related interest: swords, spears and the typical, but also most anything flexible/thrown.
Chinese sabre, tiger-head hooks, nine-section whip, three-section staff, and nunchaku are a few particulars.
Still getting the bullwhip down. (Does that count?)
Definitely a fan of the tired "karateka beats his way through a crime syndicate" cliché, but Jackie Chan's my hero.
Favorite series' of his being the Drunken Master (Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, etc.), Three Dragons, and Armour of God films—also not opposed to Jackie Chan Adventures.
There wouldn't be much left of me if you removed mythology or classic horror from my life.
I'm fascinated with archaeology and paleontology. Indiana Jones likely passes for my favorite fictional character, and Smilodon my favorite animal.
As much a fan I am of the classic Universal/Hammer monsters and jiangshi (Chinese vampire), my favorite related film is probably Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (Murnau, 1922).
Into the vampire hunter theme (e.g. The Lost Boys, Van Helsing) or fighting the undead in general. Shop Smart, Shop S-Mart.
If you'd like, I could carry on the age-old argument of Krueger vs. Voorhees (Krueger), but gore flicks aren't necessarily what draw me to the genre.
Little Shop of Horrors (1986) is the only musical I've seen willingly (original ending was better).
Naturally, anything Halloween-themed has my bias: jack-o'-lanterns/scarecrows, awful movies like The Monster Squad, and video games like Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
I like video games—favorite series of all being Castlevania. I'm 8-bit generation, but my fondest memories growing up are probably with the Super NES, PlayStation (1), and wasting quarters at local arcades.
Mostly play fighters (Neo-Geo fan at heart)—favorites being The King of Fighters and Darkstalkers. (Also into Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, Street Fighter, Capcom Versus, Guilty Gear, Virtua Fighter, Tekken, and Soulcalibur.)
That genre aside: Double Dragon, Final Fight, Streets of Rage, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, Legacy of Kain, Resident Evil, and Turok are worth mentioning (or nearly any beat-'em-up/metroidvania). Minor pinball enthusiast.
Although I'm somewhat particular concerning RPGs, I like most Final Fantasy, SaGa, and Mana games (Final Fantasy V, SaGa Frontier, and Secret of Evermore especially).
Pokémon was a thing upto the end of Generation V (Blue/SoulSilver Ver. tied as my favorite for different reasons). I predominantly trained grass and ghost types (or any of the fossil pokémon).
As far as comicbooks or manga go, I probably like X-Men/Wolverine and YuYu Hakusho more than someone should.
(Spider-Man/Venom, The Midnight Sons/Blade, Iron Fist, Chakan: The Forever Man, Vampire Hunter D, Dragon Ball, Iria: Zeiram the Animation, and Outlaw Star to a degree.)
Music is a difficult subject (often refer to the Mortal Kombat: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of all things). This hardly covers everything but my favorite bands are Faith No More, Nirvana, The Crüxshadows, Deftones, and Gravity Kills.
I'll listen to most subgenres of rock, and otherwise darkwave, trance, or whatever heavy on bass/synth. Also anything '80s (e.g. New Order, Depeche Mode).
My favorite television series is either Highlander, Sliders, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer (though I've watched a lot of The Simpsons). MotU, TMNT, Ghostbusters, Inhumanoids, and Mighty Max are some of the earliest things I can remember being into, but haven't checked on in years.
Don't read many novels aside from being a Tolkien enthusiast. Played D&D v3.5 once (drunken master prestige class).
Best fictional weapons are the flying guillotine, vampire killer, Dhylec blade, soul reaver, and bones of Li-Peng. Best mythical creature is the manticore.
My favorite colors are purple and grey, respectively (though many things I seem to like are green). I wouldn't be here today if not for spicy food and iced coffee—namely Mongolian BBQ/Dunkin' Donuts.
Value personal honesty; not sure there's much else to know.
