Getting to know you meme

Ganked from ranka:

I already know these for a lot of you, but there's a few new people I don't know very well, so it would be cool to see your answers. :-)

Your Name:
Your Age:
Relationship Status:
Sexual Orientation:
Musical Tastes:
Favorite Movies:
Favorite TV Shows:
Favorite Books:
Picture(s): (Optional)

My answers:

Your Name: Tristan. But call me Fay. (Still haven't found a female name I feel fits my body and voice, which is important to me.)
Your Age: Depends on my mood. Physically, 27. (Which I had to look up, that's how little my physical age means to me.)
Gender: Female. (Sex: Male. Transgendered, obviously.)
Relationship Status: Single, polyamorous. Not looking for anything serious... I don't really feel romantic love anymore.
Sexual Orientation: Peoplesexual. Gender, sex, colorations, appearance, body type not important. Niceness, compassion, open-mindedness, and sense of humor are all that matter to me. And cuddling.
Location: Portland, Oregon; USA; Earth; Solar system; Milky Way Galaxy; Universe # 8789748237492374523758943275834
Job/School: None. :-(
Interests/Hobbies: Too myriad to recount here. But "kid's stuff" covers a lot of it. Also "scifi and fantasy." Transhumanism, technology, and far more.
Musical Tastes: Hard to define. I like foreign music, alternative, goth, some pop. Detest country western, most gospel, most rap, and anything racist. Also, music has to have some musical qualities. Noise that's called music doesn't do it for me.
Favorite Movies: Hellboy, Hellboy 2, anything with Dakota or Elle Fanning in it, superhero movies, The Fifth Element. (And anything else with Mila Jovovich in it.)
Favorite TV Shows: Warehouse 13, Star Trek, Firefly, Eureka, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, lots more.
Favorite Books: "Kiln People" by David Brin, "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov, "White Fang" by Jack London, "Never Cry Wolf" by Farley Mowat.
Picture(s): (Optional) Here, here, and here.
Dakota F. says eh?

Oddity about animated gifs

I've noticed that with some animated gifs, I get the sensation of sound accompanying them. I don't actually hear a sound, but I... I *feel* a sound. I first noticed this with an LJ icon I see sometimes of a giraffe with a big head and neck but a tiny body running a short distance, then falling over, and it starts over. Every time the giraffe fell over, I felt a small thump, as though it were really happening.

I saw another icon today, of a child puking; every time the kid upchucked, I felt a vague sound. It's odd.

Anyone else ever noticed anything similar?
