Audrey
I'm a happily married freelance writer with a B.A. in film and television studies.
Interests: Movies are my big passion. I love thrill rides and theme parks, and find massive inspiration in all things Disney and Henson. I'm a total sucker for sci-fi shows, behind the scenes type stuff, voice-over work, stunt actors, and comedy of all kinds.

I'm a big fan of Wheaton. But that wasn't funny. (I'm not deeply offended, I've seen worse on the Simpsons.) Remember when "random" and "funny" were two different things and they weren't always connected? Though I usually get told when I don't think McFarlane is funny that I, "don't get it". You know what would really be funny? Adapting some of Wil's (Man, I feel weird calling people by their first name when I don't know them.) essay material into a "Freaks and Geeks" type television show. Now, THAT I would appreciate. But I'm tired of McFarlane's writing...it feels lazy.

It's a good sign that someone like me can read this and know what you're talking about/be entertained. You see, the closest I've ever come to being a real sports fan is the time when I got hit in the head with a puck at an Indianapolis Ice game after singing the national anthem. Jolly good show.

It's like Sesame Street went to sleep and had a nightmare.

I felt the same way this week when I found an old Disney special about the making of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland WITH Karen Allen and John Rhys Davies, and a Muppets at Disneyland special from 1990. Different generation, same warm fuzzies.

There's something about being up at the crack of dawn (Pre-crack works too) that seems to sponsor really good writing...wonder what it is?

Guitarzan? Check. We had the best of Ray Stevens on VHS. "It's me again, Margaret" Say, did you like Batman? (prod, prod, laughs maniacally) Also, your entry made me think of, "Rad", the sweet dirt-bike movie. Seriously though, we ALL looked like mega dorks back then. We just didn't have all our pictures on magazine covers...

Well, what some of you geeky guys didn't realize was that some of the "cool" girls were sitting very close by ALSO discussing their supepower preferences, wondering why none of the guys would talk to them...funny, huh? By the way, controllable super-strength, methinks.

Yes! October! That means Monster Squad and Goonies and Hocus Pocus! I didn't even know Halloween claymation existed...wasn't there some halloween special hosted by Harry Anderson? Anyone remember that?

Hmm, Naruto...that's the one with the seven tailed fox, no? I only ever watched Lupin the 3rd, Evangelion, and some Dragonball Z. Even then, it was kind of a phase...the fact that the women were always drawn so, how do I say this, lusty? It always got under my skin a little. You may now proceed to lob insults at me. haha! But I do LOVE voice-over acting. Corey Burton and Jon DiMaggio are the BEST, especially when Jon beat-boxes in the commentary on Futurama's, "Luck of the Fryrish". But that's not anime, so, I guess I'm talking nonsense.

Loved Oregon Trail...always died of cholera. Just like in real life. I have been looking for the name of a game that I used to play similar to these that took place in a Haunted Museum and was history based...oh the hours I wiled away at my local library between that and Carmen Sandiego! (The PBS game show was great too!) I REALLY started to get going with the Super NES though!
