Oh hi guys! How you doing over here? That’s a very nice ship you’ve got. Loving the decor. Wait what? Talkingship isn’t actually a boat? That’s not what I signed up for…
As you can tell, I’m a wonderfully unfunny guy. My humour knows no bounds. And that’s humour with a ‘u’. Because British English is the correct English. Of course.
So, introducing myself. I’m Shaxster, and I’m new in these waters. I’m a little bit sea-sick right now, but I’m going to put that down to my Nerves. I’m a writer, and I have been writing for a couple years now, for a variety of sites, but I’ve decided that Talkingship is the best place for me to dock. I mean, where else can you go overboard with boat related puns? Overboard? Get it?
If I had to describe myself in three words it would be writer, gamer, geek. I adore writing, hence me joining the site to…write. Unfortunately, I’m not very good with synonyms. I also love producing video content, and I’m planning on starting a new series soon, which you’ll all be able to see right here! On the gaming side of things, I’m a huge gamer, albeit one relatively new to the gaming world. I own all current-gen consoles, and am considering picking up one of the new handhelds too. I adore action/adventure type games (the Arkham and Uncharted series are some of my favourites), but I am definitely partial to an FPS every now and then. I like to think that I have a pretty diverse gaming taste, as there are very few games I won’t enjoy. If it’s got a good story, and good gameplay, consider me sold.
I’m also massively into the world of technology. It’s a fantastic, interesting industry, one that I hope to be part of at some point, and I follow every movement there very closely. I’m a massive Apple fanboy, owning practically every possible Apple device, and Steve Jobs was my hero.
On the film and TV front, I love a good movie, with my favourites being superhero movies, or something particularly epic like LoTR. The Dark Knight is one of my favourite films of all time, and I eagerly await its sequel. I’m also somewhat of a TV fanatic, addicted to Doctor Who, Sherlock and House, to name a few.
Overall, I hope to fit it nicely here, and I hope all of you readers enjoy what I have to say. If not, please let me know, as I love getting feedback above all else: it’s nice being told when you’re doing something right, but it’s even better knowing how to improve.
Thanks, and I’ll see you around! Hopefully I won’t be forced to walk the plank here. Inciting mutiny however, is a different thing altogether…
