Life

Occupation: I'm a student. High schooool!

Misc

Origin or meaning of your Username: It's an acronym of my username on a Buffy forum...it's mainly what people I converse with online call me.

First time you heard Regina: "The Call" at the end of Prince Caspian. I listened to some of her stuff online afterwards (including Samson) and initially thought she was too different for my fourteen-year-old taste. I kept coming back to this one video of Samson, though, and eventually fell in love.

Top 5 Regina Spektor songs: Ballad of a Politician, Man of a Thousand Faces, Apres Moi, Mermaid, and Oedipus.

Random fact about yourself: I'll be competing in the national debate tournament in two days and I'm so nervous I could vomit. Gahhh!

Ahh! I probably would be vomiting while the debate was going on. I hope it went well.

Stats

Name or nickname: Tom

Age: 25

Gender: Male

Orientation: Straight

Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Languages: English

Life

Occupation: Property and Preservation Specialist

Interests: singing, board games, traveling, practically every sport

Political Views: I would believe it's pretty progressive, but have dreams for a much better government than the two-party system. Maybe one day that everyone will actually work together for logical goals, and no more back-room deals and honest, open policies. Maybe I'm just an ideologue. Lead by example, right? We can do it, people!

Religious Views: Theist. Most of the religions have great ideas at their core.

Favorite Things

Foods: Authentic Asian cuisine. Especially seafood and sushi.

Color: Blue

Books: Crime and Punishment has always stuck with me, but Harry Potter will always hold a special place in my heart. There are always the classics, but now I mostly read crime mystery novels.

TV: Satirical comedies (The Daily Show and Colbert Report) but dramas with good story lines are always entertaining to me. I wish the networks would give them a chance to actually play out a story before they cancel the show! Geez!

Movies: I love watching terrible horror films! I don't know why, but they are just incredibly funny to me. But all time favorite is Shawshank Redemption. Mostly because of Morgan Freeman though. Like Regina, most anything he decides to do is golden.

Music: Besides Regina? Smiler I really love a cappella and barbershop music. Musicals are great, but most any music for me, even the occasional country music or rap song is even entertaining.

Misc

Origin or meaning of your Username: no idea. I'm not good with coming up with names on the spot. Haha sorry!

First time you heard Regina: My good friend gave me "On the Radio" on a mix cd she gave me in 2007 I think. I have been in love ever since.

Top 5 Regina Spektor songs: On the Radio, One More Time With Feeling, Ne Me Quitte Pas, How, and The Call.

Random fact about yourself: I own way too many ties.

Who/What inspires you: I wish I knew someone specifically, but I admire Regina for all of her originality and determined attitude to do what she loves. Ghandi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." So I will try my best!

Best thing about last year: Discovering Reddit/Imgur maybe?

Looking forward to this year: The Color Run is on Saturday! Smiler but I'm definitely looking forward to traveling to see another one of Regina's shows this year! Smiler

Also, I'm really glad to be a part of this community. Thank you all. Smiler

^Ughh, I know what you mean! And there's so many bad shows that don't get cancelled. Sometimes I think I should be like Regina and just stop watching tv all together. I'd have a lot more free time...Smiler

Movies: Catch me if you can

Music: Regina of course. But actually I like all kinds of music. Really everything. But I really love indie pop, especially Marina & the diamonds and Kate Nash.

Misc

Origin or meaning of your Username: Snowball is from the Simpsons (it's the name of their cat) and 13 comes from my house number - and it's my favourite number, too (for me it's not an unlucky number). Btw: I use this username often and never try out "Snowball", I prefer it with the 13.

First time you heard Regina: Oh, that might have been on the radio (not the song!) before I knew who she was. But aware of it... I really don't remember. I know that I heard many of her songs at once, because I looked her up on YouTube. And the first song when you type in is "Laughing with" - so maybe this one? Oh, and it was like two years ago or something.

Top 5 Regina Spektor songs: Mean! Okay, I'll try:

1. Fidelity (I'm so mainstream)

2. On The Radio

3. Us

4. Small Town Moon

5. Loveology

Random fact about yourself: My mother is Brazilian and still my portuguese is virtually not existent.

Looking forward to this year: I'm doing an exchange year in the US! Yay!
