Dragon’s Loyalty Award

dragonsloyaltyaward1I’ve never continued one of these before, but I feel that under the circumstances now wouldn’t be too bad of a time to start.  This week I was presented with the Dragon’s Loyalty Award (A Combination of the Versatile Blogger Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award) by three separate people; Claire from My Reel POV, FilmScoreHunter from The Cinematic Fontier and Mr. Rumsey from Mr. Rumsey’s Film Related Musings.  Many of you in the blogging community have probably received awards like this before and know that they’re essentially a list of your favorite bloggers combined with some tidbits of personal information to make the whole thing a bit more informative.  These appear to be the rules:

  1. Display the Award Certificate on your website.
  2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award.
  3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
  4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post.
  5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Now I know a lot of the people I’m tagging are on the more experienced side and if they reposted these every time they were awarded them they would be overrun with these sort of posts.  Because of that I’m not expecting any of you to pass this on but of course you’re free to if you choose.  I just wanted to take the rare chance to give a shout out to some of my favorite bloggers here 🙂

Anyways, on with my seven interesting facts:

401665_100719130065799_710286110_n1.  I am a Junior at the University of Washington studying Finance, hoping to go into the monetary end of the movie industry once I graduate.

2.  I own a pet hedgehog; her name is Spiny Norma and her Facebook Page can be found here.

59022_10151247668528919_1093763641_n3.  I grew up in Walla Walla Washington, home to some of the finest wines and sweet onions in the country (Along with the State Penitentiary).

4.  A few years ago, as a de-stressor I took up cross stitching.  It gives me a great mindless task to do while I’m watching movies and leads to things like the picture on the right.

5.  My biggest fears are heights, needles and open water (The latter of which I blame wholly on seeing Jaws too young).

248628_10151341880113919_1690002706_n6.  I name every significant product I’ve owned over the last five years or so.  This includes my Volvo Daenerys, my laptop Minerva, my Acoustic Electric guitar Ariadne, and my Mosin Nagant Natalia.

7.  I’ve spent more on concerts in the last several years than I have on books for school.  My latest splurge was Sasquatch Festival this May with Mumford & Sons, Cake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Arctic Monkeys and about 150 other bands.

Now, here are my 15 nominations/winners:

There were definitely more than a few people I couldn’t fit onto the list but you are not forgotten!  Big thanks once again to My Reel POV, The Cinematic Frontier and Mr. Rumsey’s Film Related Musings for passing this on to me, I highly encourage you all to check out their sites if you haven’t done so.


About r361n4

I'm a student at the University of Washington Majoring Business. I've always loved movies and my goal is to work on the financial side of the film industry. Until then though, I figure I'll spare my friends from my opinions and shout them from a digital mountaintop for anyone who's interested. After all, if a tree falls in a forest and nobody blogs about it, does it really happen?

  1. LOL… I had forgotten you were a finance major. Pull back, its a trap!! 😀

    Thank you very much, kind sir, I’m honored and grateful!

      You’re very welcome, and with luck I’ll be able to use my jedi-like accounting skills to bring a little more connection between profitability and quality in whatever end of the business I end up in

  2. The band Cake is from Sacramento, where I live. Despite that, I’ve never seen them in concert. Same with Papa Roach, but I don’t need to see them in concert. XD

    I’ve seen Slipknot twice, though. They seem to like Sacramento.

    • r361n4 says:

      I’ve seen Slipknot once and Papa Roach once, both at larger festivals. I mostly liked their sets because of the crowd energy though, it was insane!

      • Slipknot gives great shows. The first Slipknot show was at the first Mayhem. They played along with Disturbed, who was just OK. I also saw Five Fingered Death Punch at that show, they were fantastic.

    • r361n4 says:

      How could you not be an instant fan of Spiny, lol. she is incredibly grumpy in real life though, much cuter in picture form

      anyways I didn’t really expect anyone to repost or anything, just want to extend the love 😀

  7. We need to hear more about Spiny Norma! 😉

    Thanks for the nomination Andy, appreciate it!

  8. Mark Walker says:

    I don’t normally continue these on but I’m very greatful for the consideration Andy. Cheers, man! 🙂

    • r361n4 says:

      Like I said, I don’t usually forward these either but getting it from three people that quickly made me feel like I had an obligation to return the favor 🙂

  9. Thanks 😀

    You have a Facebook page for your pet Hedgehog?
