I loved Guardians of the Galaxy.

Anyone see any movies over the holidays?

I forgot to mention that I am also a brass (marchiing) band fan....all my HS friends were in the band (well, 3 of my best friends were majorettes), so I learned to play the bass drum so I could go to the games on the band bus.

I love hearing the bands in the Rose Parade, and get snotty when Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards talk through/over the music.  (Otherwise I like Stephanie Edwards a LOT; she and her husband adopted 2 cats from the Cat Hotel when I was working there, and sent photos of them as they grew into lovely felines.  They are my Pumpkin's cousins.)

Meow! I also enjoy SF (and think that the Sci-Fi Channel's new name of "SyFy" accurately reflects its dumbing down).

Possibly of interest to some folks here: Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality -- what if Petunia married an Oxford biochemistry professor, and young Harry was a prodigy who grew up in a book-filled home learning science and reading SF... only to discover at age 11 that science's description of the universe was stunningly incomplete....

Welcome to the group sk8eycat. Glad to have you here.

I don't know exactly what kind of nerd I am, I just know I am one.  I read SF ("sci-fi" is a dirty word!), fantasy, and some mysteries, love classical ballet, the way figure skating was before it became a jumping contest, and science.
