– Website designer

– P’shop god

– Expert Googler

– “Walking Dictionary” (Rarely ever misspell words or make grammar mistakes)

I ran across Dr. Steel after seeing Dr. Horrible, actually. I enjoyed the flick, then saw the “controversy” online and decided to check out Dr. Steel. (Unlike some, I don’t see a dichotomy there though; other than that they both adopted the mad scientist archetype and both sing, one is an actor playing a part, and the other is… well, Dr. Steel.)

As a fellow musician and artist, I like some of the good Doctor’s music… but I am more intrigued by his artistry, his use of instruments, his theatrics and showmanship, his humor and his philosophy (I’m not a victim, I’m in control, I decide, I can do anything I believe I can do and put the effort into doing…). He is obviously a man of extraordinary intelligence, wit, talent and charisma. And I like his eccentricity, another trait we share.

I’m an older recruit, but I’m told I look (and I feel and think like I’m) 10-15 years younger than I am, and I am a big kid at heart (which probably explains why most of my friends are in their 20s). I have Aspergers’ Syndrome and so struggle daily to be “normal”… but every now and then I need an outlet to let my inner geek out for some playtime, and this seems like a good place for that.

Oh yes, and I am a sharp – albeit eccentric – dresser. (Usually dressing in a 40’s style.) And I love hats. Particularly fedoras. I look damn good in a hat and long coat.

Formerly “General ßatmÅn” on Showtime’s old Stargate SG-1 fansite, Commanding Officer of SG-11’s Men in Black unit.
