Taylor Connect


My name is Will. At 53 years old, I am a life long Disney fan. Some of you may know me by my old username Smiling Selenator. The first time I ever heard of Taylor Swift was when I saw her in Hannah Montana the Movie. I just thought 'what a beautiful voice she had.' I needed to find out who she was.

Even though my all-time favorite entertainer is Selena Gomez, things have changed since seeing Taylor that first time, she has become another one of my favorite singers. I love that the two of them are like best friends. Besides Taylor and Selena, my other idol is Demi Lovato. It is my dream to someday meet all three of them so I can tell them how much they inspire me.

Music is my life so no matter what type of mood I am currently in, listening to my favorite music will always make my day better. So what is my favorite Taylor Swift song?

Well to start with; what makes me consider myself someone’s fan is when I really like ALL their music. So whenever I answer a "favorites" question, it's mostly more like a snapshot in time. My favorite song tomorrow will likely be different from my favorite song today. It’s true that there are certain songs that I tend to think of as my favorites on a more consistent basis but I guess it just depends on my mood at the time and what is going on.

Anyway, with that being said, the song I often select as my favorite one is Crazier since that was the first song by Taylor I ever heard. Another one I consider to be my favorite on a regular basis is ‘Love Story” because it is the first one of her songs that I learned all the lyrics for.

The truth is that most of Taylor’s songs touch my heart in some way and that is why I love her music so much. Lately my favorite Taylor song is You Belong With Me. It has a lot of personal meaning to me. I used to have a friend named Sami. She was my best friend for like ten years in the 90's. Even though I was always secretly crushing on her, I never told her because she always had a boyfriend. She went through about eight of them during that time and each of them ended up hurting her in some way. It often seemed as though I spent most of my time supporting her through breakups. I haven’t seen her since she moved to California about 7 years ago. But when Taylor says “Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find… That what you're looking for has been here the whole time.” it always makes me think of my friend Sami and our time together.

The first time Taylor Swift was here the concert was sold out. The second time, I was on vacation in Alaska. So this year’s concert was my first time seeing her. I got a ticket in the pit and I had an awesome time at the show!!!! I took lots of pictures and I have posted some of them in the forums if you want to see them.

For me Taylor is so much more than just her music. She has talked about some of the crazy things that she has done in her life. That’s one of the things I love the most about her. She is not afraid to embrace her craziness and just lives her life with dignity and true class. She always tries to be a good example for the rest of us. She is a beautiful person on the inside as well as the outside. I will continue to support Taylor forever.

Here are my "13 categories" of favorite things...

1) Favorite Taylor Swift videos:
Really there are so many but here are two of them. The audio isn't the best in the first one but I love it.

2) Favorite Hobbies:
Two of my hobbies are photography and astronomy. So I have been lately combining the two and trying to learn to take pictures through my telescopes. Astrophotography is a really challenging subject to learn. I also spend time on the air because one of my hobbies is Amateur radio (also known as ham radio). My FCC call sign is W8USR and have a radio station in the back room. I love spending time working on awards for making radio contacts with people all over the world.

3) Favorite music genre:
My favorite type of music is pop. But I also like country and rock 'n roll. I have a Gibson Les Paul electric guitar and I have been trying to learn how to play for years.

4) favorite pets:
I have two pet parakeets, officially called the Budgerigar (or simply Budgie) from Australia.

5) Favorite Wild Animals:
The Dolphin & the Platypus (I never knew the Platypus was real. I thought it was just a cartoon. But then I saw one at the aquarium in Sydney, Australia)

6) Favorite colors:
Purple / Lime Green

7) Favorite Actor/Actress:
Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, Johnny Depp.

8) Favorite Movies: (I love movies)
Wizards of Waverly Place, Hunger Games, The Last Song, Dolphin Tale, Soul Surfer, the Lion King and Frozen (there are really too many to name them all)

9) Favorite TV Shows:
Wizards of Waverly Place, Pretty Little Liars, the X-Factor and American Idol

10) Favorite non Taylor Swift songs:
Who Says (Selena Gomez), The Climb (Miley Cyrus), Warrior (Demi Lovato)

11) Favorite Books:
Hunger Games (trilogy), Divergent, Twilight (Series)

12) Favorite Places To Shop:
The Disney Store, FYE, Hot Topic, Aeropostale, K-Mart, Wal-Mart

13) Favorite Snacks:
Pickles & Oreo Cookies.

I had one of the best days of my whole life on November 26, 2013 when I met one of my idols, Selena Gomez before her Stars Dance concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills. :)

On March 13, 2014 I had another totally amazing night! I met another one of my idols, Demi Lovato at her Neon Lights concert before the sound checks.

Now if I can just meet Taylor some day my dream will be complete and my life will be perfect!

    You are welcome. You have a good profile page too. Especially like the pics with Selena and Demi. Two of my favorites. Lucky you. Re: Aquariums, yes saltwater reef tanks are especially colorful, but I like all kinds of setups. I had seven aquariums going at the same time not too long ago, several were freshwater. I especially like the tetras and Cory catfish.

    those are such fun ones! WMYB just came on in my shuffle aha! asking me to pick a favorite song is like picking a child, aha. however, i will say that out of the recents, i really love a song called 'through the dark.' i don't know if you've heard it before. it's not really one of the popular ones, and the only time it's really been put out there was when they performed it on saturday night live. my favorite performance ever, hands down, aha :)
