Hello, I'm Vlad!
« on: August 25, 2016, 02:17:08 pm »
Hello everyone!

My name is Vladislav, I'm 17 years old, and I wish I'd found this place years ago. I'm a coyote, and I live in southeast Michigan.

I could fill a bookshelf writing about my hobbies- I love doing all sorts of things and I pretty much never slow down doing them- but I'll just try and give a few of the bigger ones for now. I'm a percussionist, computer technician, automotive mechanic, and DIY-er. I live for working with my hands, repairing things, and making new things. As a musician, I specialize in marimba but I'm relatively adept with most percussion instruments. I love building, repairing, and selling computers, and I am very skilled with computer hardware. As for automotive, I'm a budding mechanic working towards my ASE certification at school, and I just finished a summer internship in fuel systems at Ford Motor Company.

As for interests- I love music, webcomics (I have a bit of an addiction), driving, bicycling, and on the rare occasion that I have time, gaming. I enjoy almost all kinds of music (I'm not much for pop, but other than that), but the few particular genres I like are electronic, nerdcore, classic rock, metal, jazz, and classical. I don't listen to mainstream EDM much and I would be happy to dive into conversation about different artists and subgenres of electronic music but I've made this intro wordy enough!

As you can tell, I can talk a lot. I have a lot to say! I also know about a very wide variety of things, so I'm pretty good at talking about all sorts of topics.

Anyways, sorry for my Wall Of Text.
TL,DR: Hello I'm a crazy person who does too many things I'd like to meet you all and have fun kthxbye!  :fox-:P:

Looking forward to my time here!

Marimba, that's very interesting! What made you choose that instrument? And what are your favorite music artists?

What made you choose that instrument? And what are your favorite music artists?

Happenstance, mainly. I wanted to go into percussion, and after exposure to a variety of instruments found I liked vibraphone and marimba the best. About 6 years later, I'm pretty happy with my decision. I love the marimba because it's there's much more room for expression and musicality compared to other percussion instruments. Playing it is much more invigorating; as a melodic instrument with many playing zones it engages my mind heavily, while as a percussive instrument there is a strong physical connection to what I'm playing, almost like dancing and making the music at the same time. And, frankly, four-mallet marimba is the most beautiful instrument to listen to, in my opinion. Other instruments don't move me the same way.

Favorite music artists is hard for me because I like so many kinds of music. I can give a few for some genres though.
For electronic music, a few of my favorites are Au5, Prismatic, Fractal, Savant, Daft Punk (mainly their older stuff), Infected Mushroom, Caravan Palace, Deltanine...
For rock and metal, I like Chevelle, Alter Bridge, Thrice, Muse, Volbeat, Rise Against, Twelve Foot Ninja, Skindred...
As far as nerdcore and rap, I really like Sifu Hotman (which is Guante, deM atlaS, and Rube), Dual Core, and MC Frontalot (of course).


Ever heard of Homestuck or The Property of Hate?

Heard of, yes. I don't read those particular ones though. I have a long list of webcomics I do read though. Limiting myself specifically to comics I read relating to the furry fandom, there's Housepets, Freefall, Savestate, SSDD, Plush & Blood, Bittersweet Candy Bowl, Lackadaisy Cats, Furry Experience, Last Res0rt, and a few others I'm probably forgetting. There's also FurPiled, which I particularly liked, but it's completed now. Those are just the ones I read relating to the fandom though, I could name a LOT of others. I have a list.

What other webcomics, if any, do you read?

I don't read any furry/anthro related comics, but I have heard of Lackadaisy Cats. Otherwise, the two I mentioned are the only ones I've read. The Property of Hate has wonderful characters and the designs are great, and the settings and story is really interesting. I definitely recommend it. If you read any regular comics, I'd recommend More Than Meets The Eye if you like Transformers.

I don't watch much TV. I love movies but seem to have less and less time to watch new ones... I don't have any particular favorites except maybe Short Circuit. I like a lot of different movies, I can enjoy most any movie as long as it's relatively good. I don't usually care for slapstick comedies or horror movies as much though.

Hiya! Welcome to FT! :lol-fox:

Thanks Kobe!

No vampire jokes? But I was dying to hear one! Seriously, it's driving me absolutely batty! Sorry if I seem to be at your throat about it, I just thirst for a good joke like nothing else.
Thanks for the welcome! Sorry for the puns, I guess it's just in my blood...
