My Interests

Learning and Development, corporate training, higher education, instructional technology, virtual worlds, serious games, quilting and crafting, cosplay, scifi and fantasy cons, renfaires, books, movies, music, theater, horses. It's bloody ridiculous. I wish I didn't require sleep and that I had the same energy I did in my 20s.

I'm Looking For

What are we all looking for? Fun, friendship, maybe some romance, a GREAT dance partner, making a difference, acceptance, joy, peace....what else is there? Let's have fun and change the world!

Favorite Quote

If the Apocalypse comes, beep me.

Music I Like

It's far easier to say the music I don't like. And atm, I cannot think of any.

Films I Like

Scifi, fantasy, action - most things that have explosions in the first 10 min, as long as they aren't complete trash.
Oh...wait, I do love me some complete trash - extremely low budget indies, I mean LOW BUDGET! Sharks of the Corn, House Shark, Cat III cinema (new to me and utterly horrible fun), love old classic Hammer films, Roger Corman, and the like. There are very few documentaries I like...I watch movies for fun and escapism. I prefer movies in English, but if it is super awesome, subtitles will work. There are a very few chick flicks I enjoy - a fewof my faves: Under the Tuscan Sun, Pride and Prejudice (Knightly and Macfayden), Austenland. OH...did I mention spaghetti Westerns, some classic Westerns, and some modern Westerns (if they are done in that classic style).

Books I Like

Again, it's ridiculous. First of all, FICTION!!!! I watch media, go to theater, and read to ESCAPE! I cut my teeth on Bradbury, Asimov, Tolkien, Lewis, and Keene (Nancy Drew, yup, I admit it!) One of my favorite series of all times is The Julian May's Saga of Pliocene Exile (kind of the cross between scifi and fantasy). So, scifi, fantasy, thrillers, some horror (King, Barker, and similar). My very favorite Barker book of all-time is Imajica, and my very favorite hardcore scifi series of all time are Asimov's Foundation Series, Daneel Olivaw Robot Series, and the intersection of those series; and Mary Doria Russell's two-book series starting with The Sparrow. I am not a big romance fan, but I have enjoyed some where it crosses over with scifi and fantasy. I listen to books now - not a big reader anymore. This way, I can listen while I work.

My Heroes

hmmmm - I am unsure. Maybe Samantha Jones on Sex and the City? Or maybe she is more of a Patronus.

My Reviews

Wizardry

Cyberglo has done so many generous things for the HG. He provides this wonderful place with tons of very cool freebies. I wanted to jump on and share that I was privileged to take a scripting class from him. Tonight, because of that class, I was able to locate, edit, and use a simple script! You RULE, Cyber!!!

LIGHT and SOUND MUSEUM

Another ridiculously amazing place and series of products provided by the illustrious, generous, and megatalented Jimmy Olsen! I have used many of these things for interesting and odd projects! I plan on utilizing this far more in the near future for rl projects for a university of architecture and landscape architecture to demonstrate proof of concept. Thank you, Jimmy, for all you do!

3D MUSEUM

As all things Jimmy Olsen, this place and these products are amazing! Jimmy's talent is only matched by his humor and generosity. Definitely a place I have underutilized! Expect that to CHANGE!
