CONTRIBUTOR PROFILE: The G


In the second of our contributor profiles, The G tells us what's what. For comparison's sake, here's a link to our profile of Vance, who answered all of the same questions.


NAME: The G

SECRET UNDISCLOSED LOCATION: Hollywoodland

NERD SPECIALIZATION(S): Science Fiction and Fantasy, Books, Sci/Tech, Video Games

MY PET PEEVES IN NERD-DOM ARE: 

VAMPIRES, WEREWOLVES, ZOMBIES, ALIENS OR ROBOTS: Robots. Clunky, old-school patriotic robots that fight Communism and defend America

RIGHT NOW I'M READING: 1Q84 (Murakami); The Drowned Cities (Bacigalupi)

...AND A COUPLE BOOKS I RECENTLY FINISHED ARE: The Third Reich (Bolaño); Throne of the Crescent Moon (Ahmed)

NEXT TWO ON QUEUE ARE: Redshirts (Scalzi); Kingdom Come (Ballard)

MY FAVORITE SUPERHERO AND SUPER-VILLAIN ARE: TIE between Silver Surfer and Hal Jordan Green Lantern; Magneto (despite the magenta)

IF I WERE A SUPERHERO/VILLAIN, MY POWER WOULD BE: Control over gravity. Seems like it would be pretty useful in a pinch.

THE BEST COMIC FILM OF THE PAST 6 YEARS IS: The Dark Knight

THE WORST COMIC FILM OF THE PAST 6 YEARS IS: The sound editing tragedy that is Green Lantern

I JUST WATCHED [FILM X] AND IT WAS AWESOME: Ugg...this just reminds me how few movies I watch these days. Prometheus can't come soon enough!

I JUST WATCHED [FILM Y] AND IT WAS TERRIBLE: Green Lantern. Be very afraid.

EVERYONE SHOULD SEE [FILM Z] BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE: The Warriors. 

BEST SCIENCE/SPECULATIVE FICTION SHOW OF THE PAST 12 YEARS: Firefly

WORSE ENDING--LOST OR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BSG. Lost's ending was way more realistic.

THE OFFICE--BRITISH OR AMERICAN VERSION: British. Nothing can match the sheer terror.

GAME OF THRONES--LIKE OR DISLIKE DEVIATIONS FROM THE BOOKS: Like a few, dislike most.
