Lashaan tagged me last month and since my well of inspiration was running dry this month, I figured I’d play along. Plus, after my last abysmal bad attitude tag, it just seemed right to do one wholeheartedly.
1. IF YOU COULD DO SOMETHING BETTER THAN YOU’RE ALREADY DOING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Well, my record of getting caught while robbing banks is spotless. I have NEVER been caught while carrying out a bank heist. To improve on that, upon consideration, would be to actually carry out a bank heist. Of course, maybe I need to work on my mystical kung fu skills if I’m going to try this:
2. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE THIS NEW DECADE (2020-2029) TO BRING TO YOUR LIFE?
The Rapture. Seriously. While I don’t actually believe in the Rapture (being a 7th Day Adventist), it is one of those theological issues I would love to be wrong about.
3. IS THERE A SEQUEL TO SOMETHING THAT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO?
The movie John Hobo 2: Chop (Stick) Suey. While the first John Hobo movie I ended up calling a total piece of trash, I think this second movie might be able to pull the franchise out of the gutter and at least into a low income housing strata.
4. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE STORIES IN ANY MEDIUM (COMICS, BOOKS, SHOWS, MOVIES, VIDEO GAMES, ETC.)?
I think the book Way-Farer has almost all of my favorite storyline tropes in it. Hero Quest, The Chosen One, One Man holding the fate of an entire world in his hands, Training Scenes, a Tragic Love Story. Yep, this book encapsulates them all!
5. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR LEAST FAVOURITES STORIES IN ANY MEDIUM (COMICS, BOOKS, SHOWS, MOVIES, VIDEO GAMES, ETC.)?
Deconstructionism. Where the authors take an already existing story, character or idea and destroy it. Is something noble, is something good, is something pure? Let’s twist and bend and break until it stands for everything opposite it was originally meant to. The very idea simply disgusts me and can get me on a soapbox quicker than you can say Jack Sprat.
A good example of this is Frank Miller’s graphic novel Batman: The Dark Knight and his treatment of Superman. You don’t mess with my Superman like that!
6. WHAT DOES BLOGGING BRING TO YOUR LIFE?
A much needed outlet for words. I talked about this very thing in A History of ….. Journaling post a couple of years ago. Blogging also gets me all the socialization I need and can handle. As a misanthropic introvert, the internet gives me just enough space so I deal with everyone and not completely be a hermit.
7. IF THERE’S SOMETHING YOU COULD CHANGE OF THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If former President Obama had Nationalized Subway instead of doing that stupid healthcare thing, I think the world would be a much better place. Just walk in and order a free sub. Imagine how America’s Morale would soar if every American knew that each Friday they could look forward to a free tasty sub. I like a good spicy italian while Mrs B always gets the veggie delight. We’re happy now, but free subs would make us even happier.
8. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD EAT RIGHT NOW?
I’m going to give you ONE guess ….. and caviar is not on the list.
9. IF THERE WAS ONE MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURE THAT COULD EVER EXIST IN THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I was going to go with “An Intelligent Human” but decided I’d try to be more down to earth. No need to go that far astray from reality!
I think that Basilisks would top my list. Here’s an Old School magic the gathering card that portrays it well and gives me nostalgia vibes.
10. DO YOU THINK THERE’S A CURE FOR STUPIDITY?
You’d think that I’d say “no” because of certain comments I made in the questions above, but the truth of the matter is I do believe there is a cure for stupidity; it’s just not palatable to most people.
That was good fun. If you ever feel dry feel free to give this to yourself and use Lashaan’s questions. I’m not going to bother making up 10 questions of my own.
