Toby Mobias, 18 year old human male starting... NOW
« on: December 12, 2011, 07:10:47 AM »

Hey, Westerfelders. I'm Toby, and I'm an actor/cosplayer/puppeteer/podcast host/comedian/writer based out of Georgia.

I got into Scott's work through the Uglies series, and have subsequently read it twice, along with the Midnighters trilogy, and the Leviathan trilogy (the latter being my favourite so far). I've always been into the Steampunk aesthetic, so the series was perfect for me.

    MORE ABOUT ME:
    • I'm also a MSTie, a Whovian, a Trekkie, a Potterhead, a Beatlemaniac, and I wear all of my badges with pride.
    • My favourite films (in no real order) are Ghostbusters, Hot Fuzz, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek: First Contact, Napoleon Dynamite, Dogma, Head of State, BASEketball, Batman (1989), The Dark Knight, and Captain America: The First Avenger.
    • My favourite bands are The Beatles, Reel Big Fish, Daft Punk, The Extraordinary Contraptions, and Queen. (incidentally, try listening to the Contraptions while reading Leviathan. Their music is steampunk and in some scenes it meshes really well, depending on your reading speed)
    • Favourite shows are Doctor Who, Glee (sue me), My Name is Earl, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Futurama, and Mystery Science Theater 3000.
    • I'm an actor by trade, as well as I writer. I do two podcasts, Up L8 and The MSTieCast, and use the former as a showcase for my short films and playlets. I've written two film treatments: one for a sequel to Manos: The Hands of Fate, and a Ghostbusters fanfilm.
    • I enjoy doing riffs of fanfics, including one of a truly awful Leviathan one (which I may post here at some point).
    • Speaking of, I do a show on Blip where I read awful fanfiction on-camera and mock it. Have something truly horrendous? Send it my way!
    • I'm writing three comic books at the time, all superhero works in different styles.
    • I soon will be a member of the Georgia Ghostbusters.
    • I also occasionally write/produce content for LandBaseRed.com
    • I'm a huge fan of the crew over at ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com and hope to join someday
    So, yeah, nice to meet you all, and I hope we'll become good friends. : )
