My name is Angela and I love movies, video games (but only the inappropriate ones kids can't play), music, learning new recipes, 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, Spiral (2007), Abandon, About Schmidt, Joy Ride, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Step Brothers, A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), Silent Hill, The Blair Witch Project, Bloodsport, Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer, Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, Parasite (2019), Hunt for the Wilderpeople, A Horrible Way to Die, Midsommar, Hard Candy, The Parent Trap (1961), and The Kings of Summer.
