Geek-Bio: Phreak711

Name: Jon Toderian

Alias: Phreak711

Geek Interests: Comics, '80s Cartoons/TV/Movies/, FPS video games, writing short stories, watching original & fan-made trailers for old school movies on YouTube

Favorite TV Shows: Chuck, Burn Notice, Castle, Stargate Universe, Supernatural, Leverage

Favorite Movies: Star Wars: Ep. 4-6, The MATRIX, Ghostbusters, TRON, Commando, Terminator 2, Batman (1989), TMNT series, Gremlins, A Nightmare on Elm Street series

Geeky Moments:

-- I've seen every episode of every "Transformers" animated series broadcast in North America (even "Robots In Disguise" and "Armada").

-- I cried when I saw Optimus Prime died in "Transformers The Movie (1985)", when Spock died in "Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan" and when I was about a half hour into Eddie Murphy's "The Haunted Mansion" and I realized it sucked.

-- I can explain most comic cross-overs and storylines, from "Crisis On Infinite Earths" to "Wildstorm - World's End", usually without taking a breath.

-- I am somewhat addicted to watching original language (with subtitles) Japanese super sentai series (Kamen Rider Kabuto, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger) on YouTube.

-- I collect & read movie novelizations of popular movies. If anyone has a line on "The Lost Boys" paperback, PLEASE tell me!

-- When faced with a problem, I ask myself "What would Batman do?"

-- As a kid, I wanted to be a martial artist. The inspiration did NOT come from "The Karate Kid". It came from Michael Dudikoff, star of that great '80s cheese-fest, "American Ninja".

Personal Theme Song: "Weird Al' Yankovic - "White & Nerdy"
