My name is Angela and I love movies, video games (but only the inappropriate ones kids can't play), music, learning new recipes for food that tastes like crack (I get most of my crack recipes from NYT Cooking, The Kitchn, Damn Delicious, and various cook (crack) books), reading, and learning about everything I can.


This website is named after this weird dog I know, Tristan.  Tristan Bean is mine and my husband's dog.  He also goes by Tristan McGee if he's feeling fancy.  He's a German Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix and he's very smart, but very talkative.  Most days he lays out on his cot like a two-dollar hooker on a crack binge, grumbling about his "hard" life.  Whatever.  Like a very wise lady once said, "Ain't nobody got time for that".  


My favorite movies are: Session 9, Gremlins, About a Boy, The Cabin in the Woods, You're Next, Spiral (2007), Coraline, Abandon, About Schmidt, Joy Ride, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Step Brothers, A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), Silent Hill, The Blair Witch Project, Unfriended, Ready or Not, Bloodsport, Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer, Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, Headshot (2017), Parasite (2019), A Horrible Way to Die, and The Kings of Summer.
