Q & A Time Again

It’s that time again. Time for some more questions for me to answer in another blog posts. These were more questions that were asked of me on myyearbook.com and as before, the purpose of these questions is so that you can get to know me a little better. Everyone ready? Here we go.

1) Q: What was your earliest childhood memory?

A: Seeing “The Empire Strikes Back” when I was 2 years old. And I have a little story about that. The theater where I went to see “Empire” was a drive-in movie theater called the Sunset Drive-In theater that was located outside of Hudson, NY. The drive-in closed down back in the late 80’s (last I saw it was a mobile home lot), but in its day, I did see some really good movies there including “Star Trek III,” “National Lampoon’s European Vacation,” and the first “Back to the Future” movie. Ironically, this year marks that movie’s 25th anniversary. I have all three of those movies on video and I’m trying to get them on DVD. There’s also been some chatter about whether or not they’re going to rerelease the movie to theaters or release the films to Blu-Ray disc.

And while I am talking about drive-ins, the other drive-in where I went to growing up was the Hyde Park Drive-In in Hyde Park. Saw some more movies there including “Return of the Jedi,” “Gremlins,” “Superman III,” and a movie called “Deep Impact.” As far as I know, it was and still is there. But then again, I haven’t been back to the Hudson Valley in several years so I have no idea about the changes that have happened since I moved to Central New York. But one thing I do know is that there are very few drive-ins left in New York because they’re giving way to the air-conditioned multiplexes.

2) Q: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

A: Spider-Man. Batman’s a very close second.

3) Q: Would you rather have tea or coffee?

A: Coffee. I am a coffee person and as I mentioned before, I take it black because with cream and sugar in it it looks like crap. But in defense of tea, I do like the Lipton Ice tea mixed tea on occasion.

4) Q: Have you ever lied about your age?

A: Never. I am a completely honest person.

5) Q: What do you think is the funniest show on television?

A: Well, when there were actually good shows on television, I watched such funny shows as “All in the Family,” “ALF,” “Married… With Children,” as well as a few I didn’t mention in the video including “The Simpsons,” “South Park,” and “Beavis and Butt-head.” But for me, the funniest show on TV (and they still air the show in reruns on WKTV) is “Seinfeld.”

And there you go. Hopefully I’ll have some more questions for you soon. If you want to ask me questions, feel free to ask them in the comment section. Remember, no offensive or too personal questions will be accepted.


Q & A

Today we’re going to do something a little different and a little more fun. Today we’re going to do a little question and answer thing that I do on myyearbook.com and usually gets published to both my Facebook and my Twitter. On Yearbook, I usually accept any type of questions from people unless either the person who is asking me the questions is anonymous or if the question pertains to a certain three-letter word that starts with “s” and makes the world go round. So without further ado, let’s begin.

1) Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A: Well, when I was a kid, I wanted to be either a writer or an actor when I grew up. And in a way, I sort of accomplished both thanks to the    Internet, most notably this blog and what I do on YouTube and blip.tv.

2) Q: What sport do you suck at?

A: In high school, I didn’t play sports even though my junior high teacher was trying to get me to go out for track. The closest I ever got was being the manager of my high school girls’ basketball team. Nonetheless, I took a guess and said hockey.

3) Q: Would you ever go skydiving?

A: I have thought about going skydiving and I would like to try it, as long as I was assured that there would be no parachute malfunctions.

4) Q: What does it take for a girl to get you to ask her out on a date? This was asked by a woman who lives in Utica by the way.

A: That’s a very good question. I’m still not sure. Usually the girl is the one who asks me out.

5) Q: What’s your favorite fast food restaurant?

A: McDonald’s.

6) Q: What is one thing you would do to make the world better?

A: Well that’s a very good question. For starters, I would say recycle.

7) Q: Where do you see yourself five years from now?

A: Hopefully famous and successful.

8) Q: Have you ever tried yoga?

A: No. I have considered trying yoga though, being I do work out.

9) Q: Which video game do you like better, Q-Bert or Frogger?

A: Before I answer this, for those of you who don’t know what Q-Bert and Frogger are, they’re classic video games that came out during the arcade boom of the early 80’s, although Frogger was wonderfully parodied on a classic episode of “Seinfeld.” The answer is I love them both, even though my all-time favorite game is “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” for Playstation 2.

10) Q: Would you ever go on a blind date?

A: Nope. They never work out.

11) Q: Would you date a blind person?

A: That’s a difficult question. So I would say I don’t know.

12) Q: What new movie do you want to see?

A: Well I do want to see “Iron Man 2.” It just opened yesterday but I’m probably not going to be able to see it until probably next weekend. Plus I also want to see the new “A-Team” movie and “Predators” looks pretty good too.

13) Q: Have you ever been arrested or charged with a crime?

A: Nope, I have never been arrested or charged with a crime. 

14) Q: Do you take your coffee black or with extra cream and sugar?

A: I take it black.

15) Q: Are you married?

A: No, I’m not married. And I’m not looking for marriage either.

16) Q: What’s your opinion on friends with benefits?

A: I’m all for it and in fact I like that idea better than marriage.

17) Q: What’s your worst subject in school?

A: When I was in school, my worst subjects in school were math and science.

18) Q: Would you move to another country to be with the one you love?

A: If I had the money and if I didn’t have any reason to stay where I am now, absolutely. But for now, I am not relocatable.

19) Q: Would you rather be rich or famous?

A: I would rather be both.

20) Q: Did you know the scruffy look (in reference to my five o’clock shadow) is sexy on you?

A: Yes I do. In fact, during my time on the web, I noticed that a lot of women like the scruffy look on men better than clean-shaven. In fact when I am clean shaven, I look too much like a kid and when you’re a single man in your 30’s like I am, that is clearly no way to look.

OK, that just about does it. I’m sure I will be doing another one of these soon. In the meantime, the video version of this set of questions will be on this week’s episode of “The Adventures of Blackcatloner” which is coming out later today.
