About Me


Handsom chap, no? No.

Handsome chap, no? No.

“So who is this fellow, and where can I learn more about him?” you think to yourself. Well, think no more! Er… well, wonder no more.

My name is Chris. I am 39. I live in Phoenix, Arizona, where we think winter is something that happens to other people. 78 degrees in December is nice, though 118 in the summer is somewhat less so. I sadly have recently joined the ranks of the unemployed. Hopefully this state of affairs will not last long.

My hobbies include reading (favorite authors are Terry Pratchett and Harry Turtledove, but I also like more mainstream books and, strangely, don’t really care for sci-fi or fantasy novels, despite what some might expect), cooking, playing video games, watching TV, playing about on my computer and writing.

Lately, though, my main passion has become movies. I own hundreds of DVDs, and I’m constantly adding more. My favorites are too long to list, but if you check that page you’ll get the general idea of what I’m into.

I’m an atheist, though this wasn’t always so. Back when I was younger, I was raised Methodist and thought that I believed. Eventually I realized that wasn’t for me, and spent a few years thinking I was Wiccan. Then I took a class in logic and that was the end of that. I drifted to Buddhism for a couple weeks as part of an effort to get down someone’s pants (it didn’t work). Finally I began really examining everything and wound up in my current position.

Politically I’m more socialist than anything, though as we don’t have a viable socialist party in this country, I end up voting Democrat when I can. I’m very pro-choice, anti-death penalty, in favor of single-payer universal health care, pro-union, pro-diplomacy, etc, etc. In some ways my social views are more libertarian than socialist. I am, for example, in favor of legalizing drugs, getting rid of seat-belt and helmet laws for adults, and legalizing prostitution.

Sexually, I go both ways. I’m more into guys for romance, dating, etc, but I enjoy… er… “activities” with both. I’m single and looking, but it would take a very special person indeed who could put up with me long-term. Still, should anyone wanna give it a go, I’m after someone who is smart, cute, skinny as a stick, preferably emo, goth or Asian, younger than 35 and capable of putting up with me long-term.

Despite what many of my misguided friends might think, I am not a furry.

That’s all about me for now. I’m sure I’ll eventually add more to here. Any questions about me?

    I appreciate your comments on my site, Chris. I see you have a passion for movies. I will be commenting on the ones I see. I am fairly new to blogging. My partner is a Socialist. I look forward to sharing ideas.

  2. Michael Says:

    Hi Chris. Thanks for the comment on my blog! So, you worked on BSG!? So, then…. Is it Billy!? I think it’s Billy. LOL

  3. Chris Says:

    No, I didn’t work on BSG. I have a friend who worked on there (got an Emmy nomination for his work, too!). Billy is a pretty good guess, and it would make some sense with the idea of him not being with the Fleet.

  4. Michael Says:

    Got it. Pump him for answers…

  5. Chris Says:

    (exceptionaly dirty joke based around the word “pump” deleted) ;)

  6. Michael Says:

    LOL, I never even thought of that!

  7. Blue fox Says:

    hay!
    thanks for the comment on my blog…
    Glad to know that the drawing was good :)
    for what you wrote..
    I bet you have something that makes you special, something that would make us envious too hehe :D
    Anyways…
    Thank you for the comment I really appreciat it a lot..

  8. Chris Says:

    I tried to go back to your blog, but I don’t remember the link. :( What was it?

  9. Chris Says:

    Found it. :) When I clicked on the link in your name up there, it didn’t work. I think it is because of you putting the www in front of your site address. :)

  10. Blue fox Says:

    OH!! ^^; sorry for bothering :)
    I think that I fixed it now
    thank you for informing me I didn’t noticed that at all :D
    tell me if you face the same problem again

  11. anardana Says:

    I wouldn’t hold your breath while waiting to meet a 30+ year old emo person! (though I guess you didn’t specify your desired age bracket..)
    anyway, I like your blog. :)

  12. Chris Says:

    I’m not picky. An emo person in their twenties would be fine. :)

  13. Chris Says:

    Oh, and thanks for the complliment. :) Yours looks nice, too, though I’m not even remotely vegan.

  14. Thomas Says:

    (massively long, pointless comment that has nothing to do with anything redacted)

  15. Chris Says:

    So… cut and paste is your friend, yeah?

  16. Michael Says:

    His very good friend, it seems!

  17. Chris Says:

    Yeah! I thought that was pretty great. :)

  18. tokyo5 Says:

    In Japan, almost noone believes in god…so, if there was an ad like that here (that said, in paraphrase: “There is no god. So enjoy life.”), it’d get no reaction because that’s how everyone feels anyways.

    But what would happen if that was on a bus in America?

  19. Chris Says:

    There would be a great hue and cry, and none louder than that from those religious people who are wavering in their faith and don’t want to appear weak.

  20. kennedy121 Says:

    Hey Chris, I just discovered your blog and so far like what I’ve read! I’m also pretty impressed by how open you are in this ‘about me’ section concerning all aspects of your life!

    Being from the UK, the word Socialist isn’t quite so much of a dirty word as it is over there in the US, considering our quite strong past labour movements. I describe myself as a libertarian (in respect to the original use of the word in Europe which pretty much refers to anarchism) socialist. I’m also agnostic. Why am I boring you with such details you ask?! :P I think you may be interested in my blog and it’d be cool to have you check it out as I tend to write about stuff from a left perspective.

    I look forward to subscribing to your blog and checking your stuff out in the future!

  21. Chris Says:

    Thanks! I popped onto your blog for a bit. I’ll make sure to check it out in more detail later. :)

  22. TardisGirl Says:

    You’re WAY more interesting than I am. Hope you don’t mind if I stop by every few days to read what’s on your mind.

  23. TardisGirl Says:

    Just checked out your DVD collection. Wow, you are WAY more organised than I’ll ever be. Looks like we own a lot of the same titles. You are obviously a man of extremely good taste. :-)

  24. Chris Says:

    You’re just jealous of all my Doctor Who DVDs. ;)

  25. Barbara46 Says:

    Classify the stars according to luminosity and look for any patterns that emerge. ,

  26. Bill Hensley Says:

    I ran across your blog this afternoon indirectly. I am probably pretty close to your political philosophy, but I read all sorts of views, most of which I dislike due to being polarized to one party or the other (as in Republican OR Democrat). Having a nuanced, libertarian bent is kind of a rarity. Cheers!

  27. ramblingamerican Says:

    Hey Chris,

    Read over my post at http://ramblingamerican.wordpress.com/

    You may or may not like them, but I think you could agree on some things.

  28. Chris Says:

    I haven’t seen a photo of you.

  29. mnkelsner Says:

    Ah no blogs on American Idolatry like Evil Sports Stars that escape judgment and are allowed to continued access to the spotlight ?
    The new “V” the series, or “The Big Bang Theory” tv show ?

    Or did I miss those blogs on your side bar ?

    • Chris Says:

      Actually I’m not into Big Bang Theory and I was going to try out V, but once the network decided they were going to show four episodes and then none for several months I figured it was pretty-well doomed. If it’s picked up for a second season, I might get the first on DVD and check it out.

      And don’t get me started on sports stars and the like… our culture of celebrity really vexes me.

  30. mattvolke Says:

    I’m adding you to our blog roll! Great blog!

  31. colin munro Says:

    Glad to see that you’re a Dr Who fan, I’m an old fart from Gt Britain who can actually remember the first ever episode starring William Hartnell.
    If you’ve enjoyed the new series, you’ve probably seen several story lines by Steven Moffat {e.g. Blink} Have you seen Jekyll by him, it’s an excellent storyline with some great acting.

  32. James Mowery Says:

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. You can see a sample of my work at LaptopComputers.org under the author James Mowery. I’ve also written for several high-profile blogs like Mashable, Performancing, and CMSWire. Thank you for your time.

    - James

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.

    nba ankle braces,

  35. Skooby Says:

    Fight you for Pirate Adric (arr!)

  36. john Says:

    chris what do you think of the big finish descision to offer 10 per cent off,of preorders on may 1st.as a BF SUBSCRIBER,who has payed my money upfront for preorders, I felt a little let down by this.it seems morally and ethically wrong to me.BF are always banging the drum about needing the money upfront.then they pull a stunt like this.many long term subscribers are really upset by this.would be interested in your unbiased view on this.

    • Chris Says:

      I had no problem with it, actually. I think it’s fine if they run sales, and after all, that was a sale for only a single day (though I think it wound up running two days). I used the chance to add a couple things to my collection. I’ll admit, I kind of wish it had happened the weekend that I spent $675 in one order, but c’est la vie.

      Funny side note. When I spent that much money, Paul Spragg sent me a note saying, “Thank you for financing Dark Eyes 2″.

  37. john Says:

    Chris Anymore (on the sofas)really enjoyed them.

  38. john Says:

    That’s a shame.I guess he just wants to shut himself away in a dark room,and listen to his Benny CDS.

    • Chris Says:

      I told him you left these comments. He’d reply, but he’s too busy listening to his Bernice stuff.

    • Robert Palsma Says:

      Honestly, you’re not far off. I do indeed listen to my Big Finish audios (all of them, Bernice included) in the dark as I go to sleep each night. The only part that’s wrong is I listen to the MP3s, not CDs now.

  39. john Says:

    no offence intended.have a good day.cheers

  40. john Says:

    once upon a midnight dreary,while he pondered weak and weary,over many a quaint and curious volume of Bernice Lore.While he nodded nearly napping,suddenly there came a tapping, as of someone gently rapping,rapping at his chamber door,Tis your public Rob.rapping at your chamber door,merely this,and nothing more,We need another ON THE SOFA,honest! trust me!!!
