Single in Tacoma. Want to meet someone

I want to ask if any of my fellow FeedTacoma followers happen to know someone who is single, and is looking for someone to hang out with, go places with, see movies, etc.?

 

I ask this because, and even though it's nice to have ANYONE to spend time with, it is getting a little tiresome only hanging out with people who already have someone, and even then it's hard to find people to have fun with because everyone is so busy, either with work or their significant other.. It would be nice to just spend time with someone who's not romantically involved with anyone. Really, I would like someone for my own.

 

Please don't come on here telling me to try dating sites, dating events, or singles bars or whatever. I've tried those, and it doesn't work. I've never met any woman that's ever been interested in me despite seeming to share hobbies or interests. And even if a woman displays interest in me, she will lose interest very quickly no matter what I do. I want to just get the word out here if they know anyone.


Here's the things I enjoy, or like doing:

* Writing fiction (I'm currently writing a book, and finished a short indie film)

* Science Fiction

* Classic Animation (I also enjoy reading the histories of classic animation)

* TV shows I like: Agents of SHIELD, Firefly, Looney Tunes, Animaniacs, MST3K, CSI, Whose Line is it Anyway?, Angry Beavers, Scrubs, Rocko's Modern Life, and Person of Interest.

* Is she into video games, or retro games?

* I enjoy bowling, going to the zoo, checking out bookstores, skating, and going to Dorky's Arcade in downtown Tacoma.

* Not really important, but I like brunettes.

* Also, I'm 26, so preferably someone around my age range. But, if she's in her 30s or 40s, that's good too.

* My height is 5 foot 5. Not sure if a woman taller than that would be interested, but if she's around my height, that's great.

I don't like smokers!

Wrote a script, looking for actors

I have currently written a script called "Customer Service", and am now looking for people who might be interested in acting in it. You don't need to be professional actors, but if you've had some acting experience (whether it be plays, or independent, online work, etc.) that'll be great!


The story is about a young woman who has to deal with incredibly dumb customers, and eventually she snaps and tries to gain revenge on one particularly rude patron.


I need at least three women for the three main roles. The rest of the roles are "dumb customers", and can be male or female.


I also need people who will be available on Sundays, and Wednesdays as those are the days of the week I'm available to shoot this, and the plan is to shoot mostly at Dorky's Bar and Arcade in Downtown Tacoma.


If you are interested, please reply to the note, or you can email me at tabbermstie87@aol.com and I can send you a copy of my script.

Fun places in Auburn?

I have a couple friends in Auburn, Washington, and I wanted to see if there were any cool hangout places there for if I ever drive up there to see them.

I ried asking them but their response was, "Auburn is like Tacoma, there's not a lot." Come on, there's got to be something! Besides, Tacoma has Dorky's!

Single friends who'd like to meet someone?

I want to ask if any of my fellow FeedTacoma followers happen to know someone who is single, and is looking for someone to hang out with, go places with, see movies, etc.?

 

I ask this because, and even though it's nice to have ANYONE to spend time with, it is getting a little tiresome only hanging out with women who already have boyfriends, and are only going out with me as friends. It would be nice to just spend time with someone who's not romantically involved with anyone.

 

Please don't come on here telling me to try dating sites, dating events, or singles bars or whatever. I've tried those, and it doesn't work. I've never met any woman that's ever been interested in me despite seeming to share hobbies or interests. Elsewhere, everyone is always already taken. I want to just get the word out here if they know anyone.


Here's the things I enjoy, or like doing:

* Writing fiction (I'm currently writing a book, and a brief screenplay)

* Science Fiction

*Classic Animation (I also enjoy reading the histories of classic animation)

* My height is 5 foot 6. Not sure if a woman taller than that would be interested, but if she's around my height, that's great.

My Amazing Spider-Man Review

WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS



I wasn't too sure I'd like this film. I was leery about a reboot, especially so soon after the original films. But, I saw "The Amazing Spider-Man", and the new realization of the comic-book hero is GREAT.



I have a few nitpicks though. Walking away from the film, I felt this film didn't need to be a reboot. It could have easily been a sequel on its own, just with different actors and a different director, etc. Like with the James Bond films when a new actor takes on the role. Having to see Peter Parker before he was Spider-Man, and watching him become the hero all over again was a little annoying. I did get very impatient the first half of the film. In this reboot, Parker's transformation is more tied to an experiment that his father was involved with. I think the film could have done fine showing Parker already as Spider-Man, AND THEN finding about his father's involvement AND THEN investigating it, meeting Dr. Conners, giving him the equation for limb replacement, etc. and then the film continues on as normal. Oh yeah, and Spidey's new girlfriend would have to be different. But, Spidy had a lot of girls in the comics, right?



Also, Uncle Ben's death could be seen coming a mile away, while in the original 2002 film, it was more shocking.

So really, I'd say the first half was boring and tedious (with a couple good moments here and there), but the 2nd half is great.



The villain in this film is A LOT MORE AWESOME, and more threatening than The Green Goblin was. Also, somewhat of a woobie. He's really a well-intentioned extremist who eventually turns evil.

Andrew Garfield is very good as Peter Parker, but it seemed to me lke he was channeling Tobey Magquire a bit at times. Like, when he was telling Gwen about how he had to stop Connors because he created the lizard formula. His expressions, and voice sort of became Maguire at that point.



One thing I thought was interesting, and I have no clue if this is from the original comics, but it sure as heck wasn't in the original Raimi films, is how Parker "behaves" like a spider at certain points. Like when he grabs a fly out of the air, and looks like he's about to eat it (he gets interrupted of course), or when he builds a web and feels vibrations in the strands so he can expect his enemy. We didn't really see these in the original films. Here, they're a nice touch to the character.



I like that Gwen is told almost outright that Parker is Spider-Man. Cut out a bunch of needles tension. I also like that she quickly assumes that her father told Parker to stay away from her to protect her. Again, cutting out more tension. Gwen Stacy is shaping out to be a more intelligent character than Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane.

Overall..... this movie is good. Like I said before, I didn't enjoy the first half too much. Because, we've seen it already. We're just seeing it happen differently. I thought it was needless. But one Parker fully becomes Spider-Man, and Connors becomes the villain, and they start fighting, the film gets great and was very enjoyable.



Oh yeah, Stan Lee gets yet another funny cameo. You know the Trope "Funny Background Event"? Stan Lee's cameo is a Funny FOREGROUND Event.

Cop said, family said...

Found this interesting on AOL news. Yeah I know it has nothing to do with Tacoma, but...

http://www.aol.com/video/family-dog-shot-and-killed-after-police-respond-to-the-wrong-house/517381204/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cvideo-module%7Csec1_lnk1%7C164940

Cop says the dog charged him. Family says the dog merely walked up to him out of curiosity. I suppose the family could be lying, but then the cop said he thought the dog was a pitbull. Excuse me, how do you mistake a border collie for a pitbull?

If the cop just randomly fired a dog that simply walked up to him, even if it startled him, what would have happened if it was the family's son or daughter? I think this cop is a little trigger-happy, if you ask me.

And what happened to the folks at 4717?

"Autistic Young Adults Lack Jobs"

This is apalling. Didn't businesses learn MANY YEARS AGO not to discriminate against people with disabilities? Let me just say for the record, based on my experience with people who have autism, they ARE capable of doing jobs. I know someone with autism who teaches classes, and acts in plays professionally. Some of my coworkers have down syndrome (which I think trumps autism a bit) and are capable of being bussers, deli attendants, and one works in security, and does a fine job of it.

Everyone deserves a chance. Stop turning people down because of your person prejudices. I believe it's still possible to sue a business for unfair discrimination. Just something to think about.
