Four Things You Don’t Know About Me
Guest Post Written By Abigail Covert
Now, I figured that I should probably take a break from yelling “comfortable” and actually tell you guys a bit about me. So, buckle up because you’re about to hear how nerdy I really am.
1. I really love robots, I mean REALLY love robots.
Now, I’ve always loved robots. I think Star Wars had a big part of starting this weird obsession of mine. I mean I absolutely LOVED R2-D2 as a kid but as I got older I realized it was more than just “Oh hey that’s a cute robot!” It’s now more “Can robots feel human emotions?” I think the movie that finally made me realize that I was going to obsess over robots and their existence for the rest of my life was Ex Machina. It’s an amazing movie with great acting, a wonderful soundtrack, great cinematography, and a wonderful look at robots. Honestly, I highly recommend this movie if you’re a lover of robots and/or just a film nerd. Which leads me into another thing.
2. I’m a giant film nerd.
I love movies. I love that they can transport you into another world, it’s such a great way of storytelling and it’s a shame that there’s so many movies that don’t utilize its great potential. Another one of my favorite movies that recently came out perfectly shows just how amazing and transporting a movie can be and that has to be Blade Runner 2049. I just saw this yesterday and honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s one of the few times I’ve walked out of a movie theater and thought “I absolutely love this movie.” It’s beautiful. The story is great, the acting is fantastic, the soundtrack and sound design is amazing, and not to mention that the cinematography is just absolutely gorgeous. It’s one of those films that just make me go “I want to make a movie.”
3. I absolutely love synth/EDM.
Now I should mention, I’ve never been able to pin point what I exactly like in music. Everyone always asks me what genre of music I like and I always reply with “I like what I like.” Because honestly I don’t really like just one genre or any genre in its entirety. I mean, I enjoy Pop, Metal, EDM, Synth, Hardrock and whatever else there is. Except country. I’ve never been able get into country music. So, when I discovered I loved Synth/EDM it was really great and really confusing because there’s so many synth/EDM bands that I like that don’t just use synth/EDM. Like Pylot (one of my favorite musical artist’s), it’s EDM with some slight rock elements with kinda a story somewhere in there. Of course, I’ve always been terrible at describing bands and music. So just make sure you never get into a conversation about music with me or I’ll become an incoherent mess.
4. I love Cyberpunk.
Now, after everything I’ve said about loving robots, EDM and Blade Runner, I think this should pretty be obvious. It’s just cool. I really don’t know how to describe why I like it other then “it’s just cool.”
Now, I could probably go on and on about the weird nerdy things I like but I’m starting to realize that Halloween candy doesn’t make a great breakfast.
But anyway, now that you’ve learned a bit more about me, why don’t you tell me a little bit about you.
