Sleep Madness

For those uninformed, sleep madness is when you are capable of sleeping, but your body really, really doesn't want to. Think of it as insomnia's little brother, trying to live up to him, and instead ending up being annoying instead of something to worry about.I have sleep madness.  It's terrible.I went to bed at 11:20 tonight, and I have just now woken up at 3 AM.  And now I cannot get back to sleep for the life of me.  I'll probably try again after this, and if that fails, I will probably…See More

On "Only Revolutions"

So, I got a book for Christmas.  As the title implies, the book is Only Revolutions, by Mark Z. Danielewski.  And while I am only 24 pages in (although it's actually 48, more on that in a second) I can clearly and confidently state one fact:This book makes absolutely no sense.Now, I should definitely clarify that statement.  It makes sense in that the writing has meaning and there are themes and there are characters, and while I don't know the plot yet, I am only 24/48 pages in.  What I mean is…See More

Impressions

Hooray I have finished my profile on this glorious website and now I've found out through on of John's older videos that I can write a blog post, so I might as well do that.  This website is so shiny and new and there is a photograph in the sidebar of Hank with a comparison shot of Commissioner Gordon, and a bunch of Dr. Who pictures, and Homestuck fanart, and what is that infernal beeping noise?  So I realize I probably shouldn't use this as a place to thought dump, but that honestly is always…See More

Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
The slightly obsessive one that memorizes trivial information and has a crippling need for accuracy in everything.
About Me:
Hi, I'm Alex. I'm friendly, I don't bite, I've had all my shots, but more on things not related to health issues.

I care about the environment. A lot. So much so that seeing the words "clean coal" sends me into a politically fueled rage every time. I am not joking. But, for all my love of the environment, I do spend a lot of time indoors. I do play a good amount of video games, when I'm not reading about solar energy or fracking or air pollution. I'm also a second degree black belt in karate, and while I haven't really practiced in two years, I still love it.

So yeah, I'm very friendly, if you want to start a conversation with me about anything, do not hesitate to do so. I'll almost always reply back.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Books:
Mark Z Danielewski's House of Leaves, Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and many others.
Music: Assemblage 23, The Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer, Justice, MDFMK, Ludo, and VNV Nation, for starters.
Movies: Iron Man, The Dark Knight, STALKER, Up!, Wall-E, Labyrinth.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
My gaming headset.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
My friend Carolyn.
