The PoP! Stars scour all of teh internetz in search of the most Fabulous Females of Fandom. Please keep it in your pants.
For whatever reason, this month’s Fangirl of the Month started following @BelieveinKnize on Twitter, and it wasn’t long before he realized he absolutely had to share her with the rest of The PoP!ulation. Mind your proximity gentlemen (and ladies), this one can bust balls with the best of them. Please welcome one of the newest members of The PoP!ulation, and our March 2012 PoP! Fangirl of the Month, Roxi Horror!
Handle: Roxi Horror
Birthdate: May 9th, 1986
Location: 580 in Oklahoma
Marital Status: ocupado
Occupation: Therapy Intern/Starving Grad Student
Hobbies: Roller derby (that’s where Roxi comes from), Reading, Drinking, Napping, Sewing, Cooking, Dungeons & Dragoning, Brunching.
Favorite Movies: The Last Unicorn, American Psycho, Fight Club, Magnolia, The Departed, Wristcutters, American Beauty, Dogma, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Tommy Boy, Little Miss Sunshine, Garden State, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Superbad, The Shawshank Redemption, Leon the Professional, Alien
I like watching movies once and then quoting them for the rest of my life.
Favorite Music: I’ve got eclectic tastes and will listen to about anything; my mp3 player is pretty schizophrenic. I will physically leave the room if someone starts to yodel. It pains me. You might be surprised how often that has actually happened, because it’s more than once.
Favorite Comics: Sandman, Claymore, Calvin and Hobbes, Farside
Favorite Video Games: Oregon Trail, Super Mario Bros, Angry Birds (it’s like physics! In a game!), Prince of Persia, Half Life. It’s obviously been a while since I’ve played video games.
Favorite Books: All of them. I am a complete bibliophile.
Turn-Ons: I’m genetically attracted to insanely tall men – I think to balance out my lack of height. Also, intelligence, beards, Spock, nachos, a fantastic dry sense of humor, and being called “Master.”
Turn-Offs: Low IQs, anyone who says, “I don’t really like to read,” LOUD NOISES, people who don’t care about space, and men who are overly muscular. I make it a point not to date anyone who looks like they could kill me with the first punch.
Roxi: I have always been the academic, bookish, wallflower nerd. I have a list of fictional crushes that includes Sherlock Holmes and Roland of Gilead. I carry a chainmail dice bag and sometimes use my D20 to decide if I’m going to do things that are asked of me. I also have a book on me at all times. I have more pairs of glasses than should be allowed. I earned both my undergrad and graduate degrees in Psychology, but I minored in Chemistry because I think it’s fun, and is why I adore Breaking Bad so much. I have a special place in my heart for Physics and Chemistry teachers who are so excited about their craft even though few students ever care.
PoP!: You must have a killer Meth recipe! How long have you been a Fangirl?
Roxi: Let me tell you a little story: my parents met when my mom recognized my dad from his position of COWBELL player in the college band, while he was kung-fu fighting below her dorms. I came from THAT nerdmantic beginning. I had no chance. For further evidence, my first training bra was Star Wars-themed.
PoP!: Did not know such a thing existed. I could’ve used some of that action, instead of trying to Scotch-tape down my pre-pubescent bitch-tits. Speaking of the good ‘ole days, do you have a favorite childhood geek-memory?
Roxi: My mom’s favorite geek memory is having to physically pry my tiny, 5 year-old fingers off of the rails outside the public library, while I kicked and screamed that I didn’t want to leave. I still don’t understand why I can’t live there.
My favorite memory is filling out my 2nd grade “I Have A Dream” prompt for MLK Day with my dream to have a horny toad farm, while everyone else wanted to be President. They’re endangered, you know. It’s just as noble a cause as being leader of the free world.
PoP!: You said “horny”. Heh. What toys did you play with as a kid?
Roxi: I wanted to be a Paleontologist when I was a kid and had an obsession with catching the Loch Ness Monster, so I got a lot of dinosaurs. My sister and I shared several My Little Ponies that my grandpa and I built a stable for. I was often a doomed dragon to my little brother’s plastic sword and knight costume, and we would stuff pillows under the backs of our shirts and be Ninja Turtles. I’m such a Donatello.
PoP!: FISTBUMP FOR DONATELLO! What are your current Fangirl obsessions?
Dr. Who, LEGO Star Wars (I will have an entire Hoth scene someday), finding new ways to include alcohol in baked goods, Robots, collecting Star Trek glasses from the antique mall, trying to read a book a week, and advancing my Level 5 Drow Vampire, Lillith, in our weekly D&D sessions. I also like to drag my friends out to the country in the middle of the night during meteor showers, yelling at them to “CARE ABOUT SPACE.”
I have big plans to be a Teifling at the Renaissance Fair and Amy Pond at Soonercon, Oklahoma’s SciFi convention. It’s time travel themed this year! I do love having an alter-ego with derby, and spent a lot of time coming up with skating outfits. Ever seen the movie Whip It? I built that track. With my hands. They rented it from us for the film. Drew Barrymore’s ass has been where mine has. So that’s cool.
PoP!: That is cool! Fellow derby girl/Fangirl/PoP!-Star Captain Painway is all about Whip It! What is the most Fangirl-ish thing you’ve ever done?
PoP!: One LARP group is obviously not enough LARPing for one Roxi Horror. What has been your biggest Geek-Out Moment?
Roxi: Oh man, it’s a toss-up between all of the amazingly nerdy gifts I got this Christmas, which include stackable robot measuring cups, LEGO Millennium Falcon, and a Kindle Fire, and geeking-out hard at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Best theme ride I’ve ever been on. Ever.
PoP!: I’d love to ride The Forbidden Journey. But, y’know…fat. So I kinda just hang out and listen to the Mandrakes squeal. What is your wildest Fangirl dream?
Roxi: A two-person three-way with old and young Spock (alternately, Dr. Manhattan).
Roxi: I love it. I don’t hold claim to the idea of geek girl, do your own thing, everyone. I like what I like, and I hopefully someday I’ll be the type of nerd that is cool.
PoP!: Maybe, someday. Stick with us, kid. How has being a Fangirl affected other aspects of your life?
Roxi: I am always a socially awkward penguin. The better question would be, “How do your random moments of normalcy affect your nerd life?”
PoP!: I think you just nailed that question, more than that question has ever been nailed before. We’ve come to the end of our Forbidden Journey, but it doesn’t have to stop here. Where can The PoP!ulation find you on the interwebs?
Roxi: You can follow me on Twitter @roxi_horror, or if you ask politely, I am also on Facebook.
Hear that, PoP!ulation? Ask nicely!
