Researcher 32948, known to some as "Spoo Monkey" = Earthling. Human. Male. Tall-ish. American. Art student at James Madison University. A bit of a jackass. Likes mittens. Can't write worth a damn, but for some reason has been permitted to write for The Guide. One day, it will all come crashing down around him, mark my words...
There is so much more that I could say, but it all seems a bit self-indulgent. I think that rather than write pages and pages about myself, I'd prefer to show you what I'm all about. I'll provide a few things that you might find interesting, and leave it at that.
Things I'm Proud Of
This thing is pretty cool, if it works. I just learned how to do it.
So far I've only gotten two entries edited and approved for The Guide. I just finished an entry concerning Finals Week and the average college student. I'd been writing it off and on (mostly off) for a long while, so I figured I should either finish it or delete it. I opted to finish. Check it out, since it just got approved.
The other entry, my first, is about a restaraunt in the town my school is located in. It's called the American and Indian Café (or Indian and American, depending on which sign you read), and it's definetly worth going to if you plan on being stuck in Harrisonburg for a while.
I am currently at JMU working on my Bachelor's in Fine Arts (BFA). Why, you ask? Perhaps it's because I have this undeniable need to be unemployable when I graduate, as my Computer Science major friends would suggest. Truthfully, I study art because I'm an artist. There really isn't anything else for me to do. Sure, I'm good at many things, but at my core there's nothing I love more than creating something new, be it a painting, drawing, or whatever. It's in my blood.
I am a silly twonk.
My Mystery Science Theater 3000 Info Club membership number is 24363, and I can recite that number without having to pull the card out of my wallet. Please note that it is a 5-digit number: one of the early ones1. I really loved MST3k, and miss it dearly. Especially seasons 2-4.
Unfortunately, I also seem to have one of the lower still-active H2G2 Researcher numbers (32948)! Come on, people! We know you're out there!
I think the BBC's policy of editing barely offensive words like "w****r" and "b*****d" out of The Guide is a bit childish and the result of somebody's Lowered Expectations™ of the maturity level of us reasearchers.
I am full of Random Useless Facts™.
I co-founded a secret society called TROS. Well, actually, it isn't all that secret. I mean, I just told you, didn't I? The group is dedicated to fun and general silliness. It's worth checking out. IF the website is up, that is. And don't even bother hoping for updates...
