In My World
The name's Sam. Call me Pika if you must, I don't care.
And before you ask, Pikachu is NOT my favorite pokemon. That's either Absol or Umbreon.
I'm 22 years of age.
My hero is Michael Weikath.
One thing you might find out pretty quickly is that I'm a really big Helloween fan. I'm not being melodramatic here when I say that they saved my life.
There are a ton of bands I love, but my all-time favorites are as follows: Helloween, Gamma Ray, Sanctuary, Kreator, Sodom, Destruction, Tankard, Primal Fear, Pink Cream 69, Masterplan, Crimson Glory, Great White, Savatage, Rush, Zebra, Deep Purple, Megadeth, Anthrax, The Grateful Dead, Slayer, Duran Duran, Cheap Trick, Heart, Queensrÿche, Tesla, Yes, Arena, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Cauldron... There's a slightly more comprehensive list to the left.
My favorite genres of music include Power Metal, Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, Melodic Death Metal (somewhat), Psychedelic Rock, and Progressive Rock/Metal.
I'm not much of a talker, unfortunately. I will talk to you, but I'm more inclined to say something to you if you contact me first, like you start the conversation and I'll try my best. I'm trying to get over that, but it's not easy.
My favorite authors are Stephen King and Terry Pratchett.
I'm not the biggest movie buff around, but I love older Comedies, anything at all by Mel Brooks or Monty Python, Action/Thriller movies, and Science Fiction.
I LOVE The Terminator movies as well as the Alien series!
My favorite thing to watch is concerts, band documentaries, Biopics about musicians, and movies that are Rock-related. My favorites there are The Grateful Dead Movie, Almost Famous, Airheads, Rock Star
... stuff like that.
My favorite actresses (I prefer them over male actors - shut up)
are Linda Hamilton, Charlize Theron, Laura Dern, Helen Hunt, Sigourney Weaver, Sandra Bullock, and Jodie Foster.
Favorite actors are Christopher Lambert, Steve Buscemi, and Michael Biehn.
My favorite TV show is That Metal Show
. It's the best thing about television, even though it's currently in limbo (Damn you, VH1). My favorite current show is The Walking Dead
. I'm obsessed with it. And the best episode of any TV show EVER is the episode of Married... With Children
where Anthrax is snowed in at the Bundy residence. I am also an avid lover of Full House
and will admit it.

I have met Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee, though it was a brief encounter through a meet-n-greet.
If I'm online, I'm usually wandering around the site aimlessly, lurking around the Music Forum, or playing Jigsaw (sporadically).
That is all. On your way. *flings rubberband in your direction*
