Interests meme, from freyjakj

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one.
If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one.
If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one.
If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em.
List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.

Since I'm maxed out on interests I've got a few here:

80s music - I graduated in 1988. 80's music was my music! :) Duran Duran, Michael Jackson (back when he was black & talented & didn't molest boys), Wham!, Poison...
Astro City - I'm a comic book geek. I met my husband in a comic book store. I used to own one. Astro City is written by Kurt Busiek & it's really good.
Calvin and Hobbes - Calvin & Hobbes, Bloom County, and the Far Side. All classics. Funny & smart & *sniff* gone...
CONvergence - The annual Gathering of the Geeks that I go to. A sci-fi convention here in Minneapolis Fourth of July weekend.
dreaming - Who doesn't like to dream? I don't remember my dreams very often, but sometimes when I do they are about something that just makes me happy.
Firefly - The show that Fox wouldn't let live, but the fans wouldn't let die. Joss Whedon. Those two words should be enough to make anyone watch it. The movie, Serenity, opens September 30th. Go!
Highlander - Saw the original movie on video in high school. I've seen it dozens of times since, including once on an actual movie screen! Also loved the TV show, which I see as being an alternate universe rather than a sequel to the movie. Because there were no sequels. No! None!
Kid Rock - Damn. This is the part where I have to admit to my love of the Detroit White Trash Rock. No explanations. I just really like listening to Kid Rock & Uncle Kracker. I've seen Kracker in concert twice. I touched him. I drove two hours by myself to see him. OK. Stop laughing. Do not mock me!
Martin Zellar - Lead singer of the dearly departed Gear Daddies. Love his singing, love his dimples. He's on my list.
Mutant Enemy - Joss Whedon's production company. Grr. Arg.
photography - You've met me, right? I really need to explain this one? So, how did it start? Other than those horrible 110 cameras as a kid I never really used a real one until the summer before my senior year of high school. I was going to ZooSchool at the Minnesota Zoo that summer studying animal behavior and we had to take pictures of the animals we were studying for our slide presentation at the end. I was able to borrow one of the zoo's cameras and so I took pictures of a bunch of the other animals too, not just the foxes. I loved the way the pics from a 35mm looked compared to the 110 crap I had always taken. Then senior year I took the schools photography class which was B & W darkroom. For my big graduation present I insisted that I wanted a real camera. Mom & dad thought a typewriter would be more useful for college, but I insisted. And that's how it started...
Ritalin - the magic pills. I have ADD and it helps me focus.
Spike - Ok. If you've seen pictures of the man, I really don't need to explain! LOL! I am a fangirl. I love my vampires!
Traveling - I want to go everywhere and see everything. My dream vacations are a tour of Europe and an African safari (with camera, of course!)
Virginia Hey - I'm also a total fangirl for Farscape. Virginia played Zhaan, the blue chick. She was a guest at ValleyCon, which we went to. Sweetest lady ever! :)
