About Mike Cosimanoone of us since 11:28 AM on 11.11.2013

Mike Cosimano lives in East Aurora, New York, but goes to school all the way on the other side of the country. What a great idea. Hot Fuzz is his favorite movie ever made, but he claims The Iron Giant is the objectively best film of all time. He's also a couple Latin phrases away from memorizing President Bartlet's speech from Two Cathedrals. When he's not Flixist-ing, you can find him riding the video game rails at videogamechoochoo.com
