    favorite movie

    My favorite movies are directed by Wes Anderson. I especially love his more recent works such as: The Grand Budapest Hotel, The French Dispatch and Fantastic Mr. Fox, but his works in the mid-late '90s (Bottle Rocket and Rushmore are also pretty enjoyable.)

    How did you come up with your username?

    I picked mine as both as a salute to the Kingdom of Hyrule and to the historic Scandinavian civilization that I am fascinated with. I was originally thinking about adding the numeral 2112 because I am a huge Rush fan, (2112 Is a reference to their epic album from 1976.) but instead I decided to...

    I have a hunch why the Japanese call a buffet after historic Scandinavians. It has something to do with the word Smorgasbord, The word "Smorgasbord comes from Swedish literally translated as "buttered bread table." The Vikings settled in what is now modern-day Sweden as well as places such as...

    I was at the Gym today doing my usual cardio followed by swimming, hot tub, steam room, sauna and shower routine. Only to find that some idiot stole my shower gel when I was in the pool. Seriously who the hell does that?

    What Song would be your life's Theme Song?

    See How they Run This 2022 slightly farcical, headscratcher of a classic whodunnit within a whodunnit is an interesting tale of deception, synergy and humor all packaged in visuals that are somewhat Identical to that of Wes Anderson. 9.5/10

    Sunflower Seeds Yay or Nay?

    What I like doing sometimes with sunflower seeds is Mixing them with thawed frozen corn, black beans and cooking them in butter (Usually in a slow cooker) with a fair to decent amount of Cayenne Pepper. I sometimes make it as a side dish for Thanksgiving.

    Most nostalgic cartoon show?

    I recently stumbled across The Adventures of Sam & Max Freelance Police, it was surprisingly good. Although It didn't run as long as Animaniacs or Ren & Stimpy which a lot of the comedy seems to mimic, but it does have some unique connotations. If anything maybe creator Steve Purcell could...

    Best kind of nuts?

    As a Transplanted Southerner there are really only two kinds of nuts that are widely seen as the go-to nut in the South, peanuts and pecans, the former I admit having a fairly huge addiction to, The Ironic thing is that I have not tried boiled peanuts which is so big down here in the South.
