Fill In The Blank

It's still interesting that my name comes up when listening to podcasts. I have become associated with some interesting topics in certain circles, to the point that I'm "That _____ guy." That's not entirely unwarranted or un-welcomed. Here are the ones that I hear most often:

That Heathen Guy - While I don't shove my religion in people's faces, I don't beat around the bush when it comes to it. So, in podcasting circles anyway, when something of the Norse variety comes up my name is often invoked. The most recent occurrence of this was on an episode of "Back to the Bins" where they were discussing the casting of Valkyrie in Thor:Ragnarok. (I don't have a problem with that, BTW)

That Quasar Guy - Not a shock here, as I co-host a podcast about Quasar, but it seems that I'm called out more on this than my buddy Adam Worth is. I'm not sure why this is, but I'm fine with telling you why Quasar is a great character.

That Star Trek: The Motion Picture Guy - Or, as Michael Bailey has dubbed me, Gene “I WILL CUT YOU OVER STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE” Hendricks. This movie tends to get dumped on a lot, but I still love it. Heck I've done two episodes of my own show discussing it. I'm proud to be a standard bearer, along with Scott Gardner, for this much maligned movie.

How about you, dear reader? What is your "fill in the blank" among your friends?
