I may seem like an anomaly. I am deeply religious, and highly liberal. I am a nerd, and yet I can’t stand super heroes and most comic books. I like action and horror, and yet I don’t like Buffy. I like anime and Asian cinema, and yet I am not a Japanophile. I like to have fun doing the things I do, and yet I take very seriously the things I like.
And those things are: Speculative fiction, weird fiction, martial arts cinema, genre cinema, video games, and listening to and playing music.
