    Hey ya'll! I guess I'm new. . . well, not really. I've
    been browsing the site for a few years, and actually set
    up an id when I first came across it--even posted a few
    times. Well, I sorta forgot my id, since it had been so long. :roll:

    Anyhoo, I've been obsessed with cephalopods my whole
    life, particularly the giant squid. I first became aware of
    the giant squid when I was in the first grade--circa 1976--
    through Collier's Children's Encyclopedia, Volume 5 (The Animal
    Kingdom). It completely freaked me out, and I've been
    hooked ever since. (Well, I guess if I'm talking "hooked," I
    should be deferring to the "colossal" squid, eh?)

    Besides squid and octopi, I'm obsessed with music--pretty much
    all types, 'cept rap and country (Johnny Cash is an exception).
    I even compose my own music under the moniker of The Bookhouse
    Boys (_Twin Peaks_ fans might recognize that name), and my
    music is a weird hybrid of instrumental surf, rockabilly, and
    electronica (cyber-surf-a-billy?)--sorta like Dick Dale and Duane
    Eddy meet Gary Numan and Vangelis in a dark alley. . . . :band:

    Whatever. :neutral:

    As for reading, I like the works of Edward Gorey, Clive Barker, and
    Douglas Coupland.

    As for movies, I enjoy the films of David Lynch, the Coen Brothers,
    M. Night Shyamalan (from my home state), and Quentin Tarantino.

    Oh! By-the-way, great site!!! :squidaut:

    Also sprach Vincent

    Stormbringer is. . .

    Hey there! Stormbringer is my other email address.
    Actually, Stormbringer1@atlanticbb.net to be exact. ;)

    What's really weird is, although I first played Dungeons &
    Dragons in 1983 (the eighth grade), and haven't played
    it since 1992 (my senior year in college), I NEVER read
    a Michael Moorcock book until about three years ago.
    I read the entire Elric saga in about six months (not including
    the new stories), including some of his other "Eternal Champion"
    stories.

    I liked them. ;)

    I just figured that:

    a.) Mournblade/Stormbringer were obscure enought to the
    general populace; and

    b.) Most computer geeks are aware of the Elrich saga.

    I'm a *borderline* geek myself--a HUGE fan of videogames,
    B-movies, AD&D, Star Trek: TNG (but NOT the original series!),
    Star Wars episodes IV and V (Star Wars and The Empire Strikes
    Back, but not the rest of the series), heavy metal music (including
    Blue Oyster Cult (another Moorcock link), Iron Maiden, and
    Ozzy Osbourne), punk/new wave (especially DEVO and Dead
    Kennedys), etc.

    But I am NOT into comic books, Star Trek (the original series),
    Star Wars (except Episodes IV and V), and. . . hell, I'm drinking
    heavily here (how GEEK is that?!?), and I'm losing interest.

    Personally, I'm a registered member of the U.S. Libertarian Party,
    a practicing Roman Catholic, and a HUGE fan of "roots" rock 'n' roll
    (including rockabilly and surf) as well as electronic music.

    Whatever. :roll:

    Take care!

    Vincent
