Getting to know the D
Hello everyone out there. I decided to throw a page together to let you know who I am. Sure, you read the blogs I post, but I wanted to write this to give you a look at the person behind the words.
My name is Daryl and I was born and raised in Houma, LA, a little city about 45 minutes south of New Orleans. I am 32 years old and married to my beautiful wife Lisa. I have a son named Parker, a stepson named Blaze, a stepdaughter named Kira, and a dog named Drew. My family is my everything. Without them, I would not be the man that I am.
Besides family, I am a fan of many things. I enjoy watching a good football game or being out fishing. I like a Red Bull to get me through the day and then a Miller Lite, or 8, on the weekends. Blog 4 Dat is perfect because I am a huge fan of a variety of things. And instead of sitting here and writing a big article, I’ll just go ahead and hit my favorites.
MOVIES. I can watch just about any movie. I’m not a fan of rom-com’s or musicals, but I’ll try everything out. My favorite movies however are horror films. From the slasher films to the torture films and on down to the ghostly films, I will watch almost everything in the horror genre. I have been a Friday the 13th fan for as long as I can remember and horror has never left me. Sure, I’ve seen my share of shitty films, but it’s worth it when you come across a great movie that scares the shit out of you.
MUSIC. I mainly listen to rock music, but I do enjoy some rap, country, and even the occasional easy listening. I like mostly hard rock bands like Korn, Slipknot, Killswitch Engage, Smile Empty Soul, Ekotren, and the likes. If you haven’t heard Ekotren, check them out. As far as rap and country go, give me the stuff from the older days before any of this new music. Garth Brooks, George Strait, 2Pac, and Snoop Doggy Dogg were when I think those genres were the best. Never imagined those names together did you?
TV. I really just began watching TV series in the past few years. I guess when I was younger I was too busy trying to go out and drink. But since I have began to enjoy television series, I feel like there are just too many for me to keep up with. This is a little of what I have been watching: Dexter, True Blood, The Office, Bates Motel, NY Ink, Hannibal, and of course WWE and TNA wrestling. I have also been watching some of the older TV series like That 70’s Show and Friends. I just watched the first season of Eastbound and Down and I think its joining my list of favorites.
VIDEO GAMES. I am not as into video games as some people, but when I do play the old XBOX 360, I prefer a good sports game. NCAA Football, Madden, NHL, FIFA, and NBA 2 are my favorites to play. If it isn’t sports then its going to be the classics like Super Mario.
BOOKS. I enjoy reading a good book every now and then when I have the time. I prefer to read autobiographies or local stories. I want to read about what I will never experience, not what I can eventually do in my own life. And I like the local stories simply cause I’m interested in history, especially the history of the area where I live.
SPORTS. I love sports. It doesn’t matter if it is football, hockey, basketball, baseball, or soccer, I watch almost anything. If it is good TV, I’ll be watching. And of course being from south Louisiana, I am a big New Orleans Saints fan. Who Dat!
That’s just a little bit about me. Definitely not everything. I’m sure that there will be a day when I blog about some of it, but not today. But I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me. Stay tuned into the blog for more from Blog 4 Dat. Later.
