Q & A: Humanity Ends in 10 Years!

Here is the latest Q & A vlog featuring yet more questions from my Formspring account and my Myyearbook.com. Anyway, let’s get started.

Q: What’s the story behind your Formspring username, which is as always, Blackcatloner?

A: It’s the same name I have used on all my Internet accounts since I created my email address in 2005. “Blackcatloner” is defined as “One lone cat against a big bad world,” but it’s basically the definition of my life to date.

Q: What was your first paying job?

A: A cashier at Grand Union in Rhinebeck, NY. I worked there from September 1997 until March 2001 when it became Stop and Shop (same building as GU) where I worked from March 2001 until I moved to Central New York in September 2002.

Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?

A: All my accomplishments online (blogging, YouTube, etc.)

Q: What’s the worst show on TV?

A: Teen Mom.

Q: Would you rather be the best player on a losing team or the worst player on a winning team?

A: Worst player on a winning team.

Q: What three things do you think will become obsolete in the next ten years?

A: Marriage, television, and not sure what else, although a co-worker I added on Facebook suggested that humanity as we know it will become extinct in ten years. I can see where that’s going.

Q: Would you rather swim in a pool or the ocean?

A: The ocean.

Q: Cats or dogs?

A: Cats.

Q: What historical time period would you most like to visit?

A: The future.

Q: If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

A: Now that you mention it, I have been considering legally changing my name to Blackcatloner.

Q: Where’s your favorite place to buy clothes?

A: Yard sales and rummage sales at churches, which is actually the only time anyone should go to church.

Q: Would you rather be really hot or really cold?

A: Really hot because as I always say: “Hot weather brings out hot chicks.”

Q: What do you think about formspring.me so far?

A: I think it’s really awesome, especially since it gives me material for my Q & A videos on YouTube.

Q: What movie can you watch again and again and never get sick of it?

A: Taxi Driver. I could watch that DVD over and over and over and over again. It’s a really good movie and it only gets a bad rap because of that Hinckley douchebag who tried to kill then-President Reagan so he could score with Jodie Foster.

Q: What’s your earliest memory?

A: Seeing Empire Strikes Back (the original version) when I was 2 years old.

Q: What TV show do you wish would go off the air for good?

A: Barney. Apparently they still haven’t killed that purple dinosaur yet.

Q: Who and when was your first kiss?

A: No comment.

Q: Who’s the funniest person you know?

A: My friend JJ aka jjthefunnyguy.

Q: Do you believe in fate?

A: Sometimes.

Q: What celebrity would play you in a movie about your life?

A: Noone plays Blackcatloner but me, got it?

Q: What’s the best way to relax after a long day?

A: Hang out online.

And now on to the Myyearbook questions:

Q: What’s the best place to pick up someone?

A: The Internet.

Q: Are you glad Bin Laden is dead?

A: Hell, yeah!

Q: Whopper or Big Mac?

A: I like both of them. I haven’t really had a Whopper in eons because they’ve gotten pretty expensive, but Big Macs are pretty good, especially without cheese. I am not a fan of American or cheddar cheese. I am more of a fan of Italian cheeses instead.

Q: Are you on Facebook?

A: Is water wet? lol. facebook.com/blackcatloner

Q: Should you believe a chronic liar if he admits that he is a chronic liar?

A: Well, if he/she admits it, then yeah.

Q: Is New York boring to you?

A: It can be. After all, I’ve lived in New York State all my life. And it doesn’t look like I’m leaving anytime soon.

Q & A: Justin Beiber Dumped By Katy Perry at the Jersey Shore

Okay, everyone, I am back with my latest Q & A vlog. However, all the questions I got asked this week were from Formspring.me because I didn’t really get asked anything on Myyearbook. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Q: Who’s the most overrated musician?

A: Definitely Justin Beiber.

Q: What’s your favorite type of flower?

A: Red rose.

Q: What was your favorite thing to do during recess at school?

A: Play outside.

Q: What do you fear?

A: Failure and rejection.

Q: What’s your favorite Marvel superhero?

A: Spider-Man, of course.

Q: Staring at women’s breasts can make you live longer!

A: Now this may not be a question, but I’ll respond anyway by saying, “SWEET!”

Q: Eminem is life! Don’t you agree?

A: Hell, yeah! Slim Shady FTW!

Q: Have you dated someone you met online?

A: Interestingly enough, I have met only two women in person that I initially met online. It didn’t work out with either one, but I still have them as friends.

Q: Would you ever move away from YouTube to another vlogging site such as LetsVlog?

A: I was planning to do some videos on LetsVlog when I signed up for it last year, but I never got around to it. I also tried BlogTV but that didn’t work. I have blip.tv where I upload The Adventures of Blackcatloner videos every Friday but other than that, I would have to say I’m gonna be sticking with YouTube for the time being.

Q: What do you think of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and “One of the Boys” albums? Which one did you like better?

A: “One of the Boys” was good, but “Teenage Dream” is even better, especially since I can’t get the title song out of my head.

Q: What hobbies do you have? Are you a gamer, a comic book nerd or a movie buff?

A: I’m gonna answer this in two parts. 1) I write, work out (although I have been slacking in that area because I work overnights but should get back into it again), and of course all my online activities (blogging, YouTube, social networking, etc.) 2) I’m not a gamer (mostly because I can’t afford it) but I collected comic books in high school and I am in fact a movie buff. In fact, last weekend, I saw the latest “Fast and the Furious” film, “Fast Five.” It was awesome.

Q: What are your thoughts on chivalry? Is it dead?

A: Unfortunately yes.

Q: Have you abandoned MySpace like almost everyone else has or do you still keep your MySpace page running out of sympathy?

A: I still have my Myspace (all three of them) up, but I’m not on there anymore. Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook and Twitter FTW!

Q: Were you ever a teacher’s pet?

A: Not really.

Q: Did you ever have a teacher who picked on you?

A: I’ve had a couple.

Q: Adamantium is supposed to be unbreakable and can’t be destroyed. Therefore, could Superman break Wolverine’s skeleton? Or could Wolverine’s claws pierce Superman’s skin?

A: Probably one question that will never be answered, even by the most experienced comic book aficionado.

Q: Does the Dark Side really have cookies?

A: Yeah. Chocolate chip ones.

Q: What sort of cell phone do you have? If you don’t have one, which one would you like to have? What are the requirements that a phone must have for you to want to have it?

A: I have a Verizon Prepaid phone which I’ve had for just over a month and it is really awesome. I am able to hang out online (specifically Facebook and Twitter) whereever I am and it is also a camera phone. 🙂

Q: If you could drink only one thing for a year and it couldn’t be water, what would you drink?

A: Pepsi.

Q: Where’d you find out about formspring.me?

A: My YouTube peeps.

Q: Who’s the sexiest woman alive?

A: Famous actor. Can’t sing to save my life.

Q: Would you rather get up early or sleep late?

A: Sleep late.

Q: What was the last book you read?

A: “A Shore Thing” by Snooki. Yes, I’m a Jersey Shore fan. Deal with it. Plus a little tidbit: I come from the same area of NY (Hudson Valley/Poughkeepsie area) as Snooki.

Q: What’s the most unselfish thing you’ve ever done?

A:  Well, last week I gave a dollar to a diabetic woman for a soda because she looked like she was about to have a stroke.

A: A return trip to Puerto Rico.

Q:What’s the oldest piece of clothing you still own and wear?

A: My Terminator shades from high school.

Q: Who’s your favorite character on The Office?

A: Michael Scott. Good luck, Steve Carell. 🙂

Q: Do you believe there’s intelligent life on other planets?

A: I’m sure there is.

Q: What’s the furthest place you’ve ever traveled to?

A: Puerto Rico.

Q: If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?

And there you have it. The latest Q & A is now officially in the books. Remember, if you want to ask me anything and don’t have a Formspring account, you can ask in the comment section either here on the blog or on the YouTube video page. Remember, no offensive comments will be accepted.

Q & A: Charlie Sheen (#winning) and the Truth About An American Tragedy

Well here is the latest Q & A vlog with some more questions that I answered on Formspring and on Myyearbook.com. And as I did in the last Q & A video, I started with the questions from my Formspring account first.

Q: If you could master one talent of your choice instantly, what would you choose?

A: Moviemaking.

Q: What’s your favorite clothing brand?

A: I don’t really have one, most notably because I can’t really afford to buy designer brands.

Q: What is your favorite book?

A:Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. A very close second would be Theodore Dreiser’s “An American Tragedy” because it is based on the real-life Chester Gillette murder case in 1906 for which the trial was held right here in H-town.

Q: What was the reason that made you start youtubing, and how long have you been making videos for YouTube?

A: I was inspired by another YouTuber (Mr. Safety) and I was looking for a way to expand what I have been doing on the web (blogging and social networking) and I have been doing YouTube videos for just over 3 years.

Q: What do you think about Charlie Sheen #WINNING?! 🙂

A: No comment, although he makes for good comedy. 😉

Q: What would be your number one relationship-breaker? What is unforgiveable in your book?

A: Lying.

Q: What’s the first thing you check when you turn on your computer?

A: My Email.

Q: What part of marriage is the most appealing aspect to you (whether you’re actually married or imagining what the most appealing would be)?

A: Togetherness, even though I am not a firm believer in marriage.

Q: If you could be the president or leader of your country for one day, what would you do?

A: Boost the economy for starters.

Q: How would you describe your personality?

A: In a word: Complex

Q: What is your relationship status? (eg. single/In a relationship/other)

A: Obviously single.

Q: Are you a morning or night person?

A: Night person, partly because of my job.

Q: Do you watch “Unsolved Mysteries” at all?

A: I used to as a kid. I recently found some episodes on YouTube and the most recent episode I watched was the “Grace’s Ghost” episode because it was about the Gillette case and the possibility of the existence of Grace Brown’s ghost at Big Moose Lake. (Yes, folks, I am still planning a video about the Gillette case in the near future.)

And here are the questions from Myyearbook.com:

Q: If you had to give all your money away to a charity, what one would you choose?

A: The American Heart Association because I do the Heart Run every year. Unfortunately, I did not do the Heart Run this year because of the weather.

A: Haven’t really pulled too many pranks.

Q: What story did you have your parents read to you over and over again as a child?

A: I don’t remember.

A: I think it’s like 90 days or something like that.

Q: If you met “the one”, what do you think it would feel like?

A: A lot.

Q: If you joined the circus, what act would you most want to perform?

A: Lion tamer.

And that is pretty much it for this segment. If you want to ask me a question and don’t have a Formspring account, you can ask in the comment section below here on the blog or on the YouTube video page.

Q & A: Ninjas vs. Green Berets

Hello, everyone. Here is the latest installment of Q & A where I answer yet some more questions that I have been asked on the web. I start off the segment with questions I have been asked on my Formspring account.

Q:What’s your favorite Sci-Fi movie?

A: The Star Wars movies.

Q: What celebrity would you most like to meet in person?

A: Any of ’em would be fine.

Q: Would you rather have the ability to fly or the ability to breathe underwater?

A: Can’t I have both? lol

Q: What was the most interesting place you’ve traveled to?

A: Puerto Rico during spring break of my junior year at Red Hook High School back in the 1995-96 school year. It’s hard to believe that as of this April it will have been 15 years since I made that trip.

Q: Who’s the most beautiful person you know?

A: Not sure, but then again, it’s probably not a good idea to name names in a video in case someone decides to gripe about being mentioned in a YouTube video.

Q: Who’s your favorite musician?

A: Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Q: What are you most excited about right now?

A: Right now, excited that I’m doing the new season of The Adventures of Blackcatloner.

Q: Do you like it when it snows?

A: Since I live in NY, I would have to say no.

Q: Who do you text message with the most?

A: I don’t really text anyone.

And now on to the Myyearbook questions:

Q: What’s your favorite color?

A: Black.

Q: If I said you had to live without your phone for a week, could you do it?

A: I currently am living without my phone. Haven’t had it since November, but I am in the process of getting another one probably in the next week or two.

Q: If you could have either true love, long life, or a super human ability, which would you choose?

A: Probably long life and superhuman ability because true love doesn’t exist.

Q: Who is your hero?

A: Myself.

Q: What did you eat for breakfast today?

A: Cereal, even though at the time I answered that question, I had a cinnamon bun at Empire Diner.

Q: What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever worked for?

A: My independence.

And to close this latest Q & A segment out, I figured I’d throw in this question that I came across on Twitter that was asked by local tweeter Thomas Armitage, who is a reporter for the Utica Observer-Dispatch, one of the local newspapers in my neck of the woods.

Q: Who would win in a fight, ninjas or green berets?

A: It all depends on the playing field. In close quarters, the ninjas would win, but out in the open, the berets would win because they have guns, tanks, jets, snipers, etc.

That question was pretty much similar to a question that was asked to AngryAussie in a video a couple of years ago, except that the battle was between pirates and ninjas. However the answer is still the same. And there you go, another Q & A completed. If you want to participate and don’t have a Formspring account, you can always ask in the comment section below.

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.
