Hey everyone! I haven’t written a blog in quite some time, so I think it’;s time to re-introduce myself. I’m Jared, real life friend to Tom since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were swimming in a fishbowl. In the strip, I am immortalized as Tom’s other other-half; appropriately named Jared.

I live in Des Moines, Iowa with my lovely wife Patti. We just bought a house (hence the absence of all free time and presence in the forum.)

I work in the media department of a major insurance company. I shoot and edit video, assist people with A/V equipment, and I am the admin for the company’s video conferencing network.

Every once in awhile, I write blogs for this website detailing the latest gut feelings about the recent films I have consumed. I don’t know if anyone reads them, but I try to make them at least a little bit interesting.

If you want to contact me, please do so at brinkmeyer@hotmail.com please reference Theater Hopper in the subject line so that your message doesn’t go the way of the make money fast while enlarging your penis messages. I’d be happy to hear from you.
