Brandon Johnston [Book Dept. Editor, Technomancer]

About:

  • When I was 4, my mom gave me a red cape. I wore that thing until the day I jumped off a wardrobe and woke up concussed. The cape mysteriously disappeared, and in spite of my mother’s insistence I don’t think it was Lex Luthor. At age 6 I received a permanent scar on my chin from an attempt to channel the Force and spring out of a swimming pool that was posing as a Sarlacc Pit. I have numerous scars on my hands, legs, and arms from more childhood mishaps with power tools while forging wooden swords and constructing lightsabers. I’ve been a geek all my life and I’ve paid for it with blood, sweat, tears, and fingertips…and it’s glorious.

Favorite Foods:

  • Anything with garlic…suck it, Vamps.

Favorite Quotes:

  • “My ship works better when I kick it.” – Spike, Cowboy Bebop
  • “Who is the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?” – Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars
  • “I’ve no earthly reason to think I can trust you, and, if I do this and get away with it, you’ll have something on me that you can use whenever you want to. Since I’ve got something on you, I couldn’t be sure that you wouldn’t put a hole in me some day. All those are on one side. Maybe some of them are unimportant – I won’t argue about that – but look at the number of them. And what have we got on the other side? All we’ve got is that maybe you love me and maybe I love you.” – Sam Spade, The Maltese Falcon
  • “If you’re an alien, then why do you sound like you’re from the north?” “Lots of planets have a north.” – Rose and The Doctor, Doctor Who

Favorite Bands:

  • Flogging Molly, The Pogues, The Killers, The Decemberists, Cage the Elephant, Neon Trees, Mumford and Sons, Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz,

Favorite Movies:

  • The Original Star Wars Trilogy, The Quiet Man, Big Trouble in Little China, Army of Darkness

Favorite Directors:

  • Bruce Campbell, Robert Downey, Jr., Anton Yelchin
