First computer?

Macintosh II. I was all Macs growing up, then started building my own PCs in high school and college, and then switched back to Macs somewhere in my late-20s.

Favorite movie in the last year?

This is tough...trying to avoid covid19 wfh recency bias.

I think I'll have to go with Joker. Incredibly dark, fantastically freaky performance by Joaquin Phoenix, and a hauntingly surreal soundtrack.

Runner-up goes to Marriage Story which was IMO underrated. Adam Driver and Scarlet Johansson convincingly portray flawed yet sympathetic characters in what could have been a real story.

Play: I used to run cross-country and do martial arts (Jeet Kune Do & Eskrima). I had a foot injury awhile ago which more or less stopped that, so now I use the gym instead (elliptical, weight training, etc.).

Watch: Tennis and College Football (Go Stanford Cardinal!) Though tbh not as much time as I used to have.

I'm dating myself here, but the Super Mario Bros Super Show, and especially the days they had Legend of Zelda. "Well Excuuuuse me Princess!"

I'm also a big anime fan, so I grew up on a steady diet of stuff like Gundam Wing, Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, Robotech/Macross, Pokemon, Tekkaman Blade, etc.
