I figure I’d take a break from posting videos today (even though the blog has sort of become just another outlet for me to get my videos out to the public) to do this little Q & A thing based on a note I posted on my Facebook page in which I answer 25 questions about my senior year of high school.

Q & A: Last Hurrah With Selena Gomez

For starters, I originally uploaded this Q & A vlog to YouTube two weeks ago but I’ve been busy preparing for the new semester at HCCC that I forgot about it. So I have finally uploaded it to Blip today since I sort of found myself with only a half a day today since my teacher for two of my classes was absent today. Before I start asking the questions for this Q & A segment, I just want to let you know that so far the new semester at HCCC is going good. I have four classes this semester: Writing for Electronic Media, Applied Media Asthetics (formerly known as Video Production,) Voice and Diction, and another gym class where I get to use the Fitness Center again.

Now at least three of those classes should be easycakes for a guy who has spent the last few years involved with YouTube and the Internet but another concern has surfaced: How to get through the courses without pulling the YouTube card a little too much. I will admit that my YouTube and Internet skills got me through my first year pretty good. Well, good enough to make the Dean’s List twice. Now, the stakes are higher and it’s time to deliver yet again. I do have some high hopes for this semester and I might be able to score higher this time since I am learning stuff I already know.

So this Q & A vlog will be my last hurrah as far as the Q & A’s go. So without further ado, here we go.

Q: What is your morning routine?

A: Don’t really have a morning routine being I’m kinda nocturnal. Usually it’s just go to work. On weekends when I’m up during the day, I just do whatever.

Q: Funnyordie.com sent this one to me. Want to see why cats and Rihanna are the best?

A: I can agree with you on the cats’ part, but Rihanna? She’s hot but at least the cats didn’t appear in Battleship, lol.

Q: Do you doodle, paint or sculpt?

A: Not really. Not very good at it.

Q: Do you like motorcycles?

A: Yeah, I like motorcycles.

Q: And here’s another one from Funny or Die. Selena Gomez falls in love with a mysterious painter in a new video (that they posted on their site) What do you think about it?

A: As long as it’s a real man, it’s all good. 😉 And yes, folks. That was an obvious swipe at Justin Beiber.

Q: Are you usually early, late, or right on time?

A: It varies, but usually I’m on time.

Q: What websites do you visit daily?

A: Facebook, YouTube, Blip, Formspring, and my blog among other sites.

Q: This one’s not really a question but I’m gonna add it anyway. The doctors proved that while you are kissing, you’re actually losing calories. In a average kiss which lasts 3 minutes you lose 12 calories, that means that if you are about to eat a piece of chocolate cake you’ll have to kiss for one hour and 45 minutes.

A: Wow, I didn’t know that. Thanks for the information.

Q: Spider-Man, Batman or Superman?

A: Spider-Man all the way! Batman’s a very close second. Never really got into Superman outside of the movies or TV. I thought the comics were boring and he is pretty much the ultimate nice guy, which makes him more or less unrelatable .

Q: And yet here’s another one from Funny or Die. Check out 10 of the Greatest Yearbook Moments! Which is your favorite? And if you want to actually see the article, I’ll post the link right here for you: .

A: I like the random dog class photo in the yearbook as well as the Mrs. Rape kindergarten photo. I am not making this up. There really is a pic of a teacher with that name. Don’t believe me? Click the link above and see for yourself. Moving right along, I also like the attitude of the kid that said he would take a bullet for his best friend unless he had a hot girlfriend, which is also what I would do. The kid that used the Kim Jong Il quote however is sick.

Q: What’s up with all the ticklish feet questions on Formspring?

A: I don’t know.

Q: Do you prefer to listen to full albums or random songs?

A: Depends on the band and the album. If I just like the one song, I’d rather listen to that and download it than just buy the full album.

Q: Where did you get the shoes you’re wearing?

A: Uh, I bought them at Walmart on clearance… almost a year ago. lol. And no, I’m not gonna take a pic of them.

Q: What is the most important political issue of this election?

A: Right now it looks like a toss-up between the economy and gay marriage.

Q: Who is one of your favorite authors?

A: Stephen King.

Q: Do you like looking in the mirror?

A: Well I’m not vain if that’s what you’re asking.

Q: If you could be any video game character, which character would you be?

A: Max Payne so I use the cool Matrix effects to dodge obstacles.

Q: What’s your favorite romance movie?

A: Romance movies are not really my thing, me being a guy and all but I would have to go with Titanic.

Q: Do you have good vision?

A: Yeah.

Q: Do you prefer Batman Begins or The Dark Knight?

A: The Dark Knight. But then again I’d take both over Batman and Robin. Then again, I actually liked The Dark Knight Rises over The Dark Knight.

Q: Would you rather go to a pub/bar or a nightclub?

A: Either one as long as they got hot chicks.

Q: Who was the first celebrity you had a crush on?

A: I’d probably have to go with Madonna on this one.

Q: The Simpsons or Futurama?

A: The Simpsons.

Q: The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love. Is it true?

A: Depends on your point of view. But in my opinion independence is more important.

Q: Have you ever seen a ghost?

A: No I have not seen a ghost despite the fact that I have been in haunted places before, like the 1834 Herkimer County Jail here in H-.town. One ghost I was actually hoping to look for was the ghost of Grace Brown up at Big Moose Lake. Her murder up at the lake inspired the classic novel “An American Tragedy” and the film “A Place in the Sun.”

Q: Do you have a dreamcatcher?

A: No.

Q: Would you rather watch a movie or watch TV?

A: Watch a movie.

Q: Do you need glasses?

A: No.

Q: Which instrument do you wish you could play?

A: Electric guitar.

Q: Going to a wedding soon?

A: Haven’t been to a wedding and I’m not really planning on going to any in the near future.

Q: Do you wear watches? Why or why not?

A: Not really. My phone’s sort of taken the place of my watch.

Q: Have you been to your country’s capital?

A: Yes. I went to Washington, DC for my 8th grade class trip and that was waaaay back in 1993. We were there for three days.

Q: Are you good at keeping secrets?

A: Depends on what the secret is.

Q: How do you flirt?

A: On the Interwebs.

Q: Is it possible to fly on a violin?

A: Not that I’m aware of.

Q: Do you ever write notes on your hands?

A: Sometimes.

Q: How many pillows do you sleep with?

A: Two.

Q: How many boyfriends/girlfriends have you had?

A: Let’s just say I can count the number of girlfriends on one hand and leave at that, okay?

Q: Describe the worst fart ever.

A: It would probably be like a nuclear explosion, especially if you light a match.

Q: How do you handle a boring class/day of work?

A: One day at a time. Actually, I just work on material for videos.

Q: What game are you the best at pwning face at?

A: Super Mario Bros. 1-3.

Q: Who’s your favorite athlete?

A: Michael Jordan.

Q: Are you looking forward to the Olympics?

A: Well the Olympics have come and gone and the only reason I have to watch the Olympics is to look at all the hot female athletes so you could say that I was pretty excited to see the Olympics.

Q: Who do you consider to be the greatest action star of all time? If it’s too hard, choose 3.

A: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford

Q: What do you use for your alarm to awaken you?

A: An alarm clock although at times it can be unreliable. Other times, I use my phone.

Q: Do you say soda or pop?

A: Soda.

Q: Do you like Quentin Tarantino’s work?

A: Yeah, I like Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction is one of my all-time favorite movies. Not sure yet if I want to see Django Unchained (mainly because it’s about slavery) even though I heard that Leo is supposed to be good in that as the evil slave owner. But other than that and the fact that I haven’t seen either Jackie Brown or Reservoir Dogs, I think Tarantino’s one of the awesomest directors ever.

And now let’s move on to the Meetme questions, even though there’s only two of them.

Q: How old do you think you’ll be when you get married?

A: Not getting married even if I do find someone.

Q: Are you single and would you date anybody you meet online?

A: Yeah, I’m single and maybe I’ll date someone I meet online.

And there you go, that is it for the Q & A’s for now while I am at college. That will at least buy me some time to get some more material in case I do more Q & A’s after the semester’s over. In the meantime, TAOB will continue and the movie reviews will continue. So here’s to the new semester.

Q & A: 15 Weird Questions

Welcome to my latest Q & A vlog. And this week, the questions are not from Formspring. Instead they’re part of a series of tagged questions where someone has to answer weird questions. However, this Q & A is going to be shorter than the last few Q & A’s I’ve done since I’ve been back on YouTube. The last few Q & A’s I’ve done have actually been either close to or slightly over 20 minutes each. Since there are only 15 questions in this one, this one is going to be much shorter. Hopefully next week, I’ll have enough Formspring questions for the next vlog. So anyway, here we go.

Q: What’s a nickname only your family calls you?

A: I don’t think I really have a nickname only my family calls me.

Q: What’s a weird habit of yours?

A: I’m not sure if I really have any.

Q: Do you have any weird phobias?

A: Not really.

Q: What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast and belt out when you’re alone?

A: Anything 80’s. No specific song, just any song from the 80’s.

Q: What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?

A: I have quite a few. Haters on YouTube, people who try to bum cigarettes off of me when I don’t smoke, rejection, women who aren’t my type trying to pick me up, and things that suck.

Q: What’s one of your nervous habits?

A: Sometimes, I twiddle my thumbs; sometimes when I’m anxious, my knees shake; and I have a bit of a stutter which I’m still trying to work on. But other than that, I don’t have any real nervous habits.

Q: What side of the bed do you sleep on?

A: I don’t really sleep in a bed. I sleep on a couch.

Q: What was your first stuffed animal & its name?

A: It was a stuffed German Shepherd dog and it was named Tramp.

Q: What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?

A: I don’t go to Starbucks. I do order frappes at McDonald’s. As I mentioned in recent episodes of TAOB, it’s become my new addiction.

Q: What’s the beauty rule you preach but never ACTUALLY practice?

A: I don’t really have any to tell you the truth.

Q: Which way do you face in the shower?

A: I don’t really think about that sort of thing.

Q: Do you have any weird body skills?

A: Not that I know of. Unless I have superpowers and I don’t know it yet.

Q: What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food that’s ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?

A: Creole-flavored ziti. If you watched the first episode of TAOB since I returned from my hiatus, I showed you how to make it. All you need is ziti (or any type of pasta) and creole seasoning. Sure it’s spicy and if anything, it clears your sinuses. But it’s soooo good.

Q: What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

A: One lone cat against a big bad world. My motto.

Q: Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

A: Oh, wouldn’t you like to know.

And there you go. My 15 weird questions for this week’s Q & A. Since this was part of a tagged thing, I’m not really tagging anyone so don’t worry about it. Like I said, I will have an all-new Q & A vlog next week with questions from Formspring.

Q & A: Let’s Go Out To the Movies

I figured for this week’s Q & A segment, I would have a theme this week. And the theme is movies. We watch movies every day (TV, DVD, cable, satellite, theaters, Internet, etc.) and we love ’em, despite the fact that there are a few that actually suck. But either way, you can’t deny that they’re an escape from the hell that is real life. So without further ado, let’s begin with the Formspring questions first:

Q: What do you think is the worst movie sequel ever made?

A: Apart from anything having to do with Twilight, there are at least a few of them that I have seen that fit the bill to me: Karate Kid 3 (which I felt was unnecessary), Rocky V (too depressing to be a Rocky movie), Star Wars: Episode I- The Phantom Menace (even though there were some good moments), Star Trek: Insurrection (’nuff said there), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (the worst Indiana Jones film ever and too gruesome especially for a movie aimed at kids), and Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin (A BAT CREDIT CARD?!)

Q: If you have a secret that you just can’t keep, who do you tell it to?

A: Someone I can actually trust.

Q: What would be your crazy “I just won the lottery” purchase?

A: Too many things to name. Guess I’m gonna have to wait a while longer.

Q: As a kid did you ever get nightmares from seeing a movie you were way too young for?

A: Yes.

Q: What’d you think of the movie “Inception”?

A: I thought it was awesome. Chris Nolan is the man.

Q: Do you wake up early?

A: Sometimes.

Q: Fashion you hate?

A: Anything that looks too dorky.

Q: Ice cream – cone, cup or milkshake?

A: All of the above.

Q: Would you rather have a dragon, a space ship, or a time machine?

A: Either a spaceship or a time machine, but mainly a time machine.

Q: Coffee or Tea?

A: Coffee.

Q: Pen or pencil?

A: 99 percent of the time I use a pen. I don’t use pencils that much except for Scantron tests at school.

Q: Top 10 movies of all time?

A: I assume by this Rotten Tomatoes.com means my top 10 favorite movies of all time. But anyway, my top 10 favorite movies of all time are as follows:

1. Titanic
2. Pulp Fiction
3. Taxi Driver
4. Rocky
5. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
6. The Dark Knight
7. Star Wars: A New Hope (the original Star Wars)
8. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
9. The Shawshank Redemption
10. The Avengers

…with an honorable mention going to “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” probably the greatest action-adventure movie of all time. Actually I’m thinking about doing a Top 20 video on my favorite movies of all time and this question pretty much set that in motion.

Q: Do you like Batman?

A: Hell, yeah! Can’t wait for Dark Knight Rises. Bane looks really awesome in that movie and since it’s Chris Nolan directing there’s no chance that Bane will be screwed up (unlike what Joel Schumacher did to him in “Batman and Robin” for that matter.) And as I think I mentioned before in previous videos, Batman is one of my all-time favorite comic book heroes (second only to Spider-Man.)

Q: Do you guys think there should be a “Legend of Zelda” movie?

A: As long as they don’t screw it up like they did the Mario Bros. movie. But then again, I’m not really a Zelda fan. Never played it. I was more of a Mario fan and as far as them making the Zelda movie goes, I really don’t care either way. If it looks good, I’ll see it but otherwise, I really don’t care.

Q: What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a movie ticket?

A: $8.50 and I think that was at the Marquee Cinema in New Hartford. Now it’s up to like 10 bucks and an extra 4 bucks to see a 3D movie there.

Q: What is the best fictional vacation spot? Narnia, Middle-Earth, Pern, Oz, etc…

A: I heard Pandora is nice this time of year.

Q: How tall are you? Have you ever wished to be a different height?

A: 5’11” and no, I don’t wish to be a different height.

Q: Would you be a good babysitter?

A: No.

Q: How many times have you seen your favorite movie?

A: Numerous times.

Q: Are you addicted to Skyrim?

A: No. I don’t play Skyrim. I can’t really afford to play video games.

Q: Are you sarcastic often?

A: Me? Sarcastic? Nooooooo… well, actually yes.

Q: Front, middle or back of the movie theater?

A: When I was a kid, I usually sat in the front, but as an adult, I usually sit in the back.

Q: What’s the best holiday movie?

A: That’s a no-brainer. A Christmas Story, of course, followed by Christmas Vacation and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Q: Favorite Spider-Man villain?

A: Venom all the way!

Q: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen online recently?

A: The Nostalgia Critic. I started watching him earlier this year and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Q: Funny or Die.com wanted me to check out 12 comedies that they thought were made to sound like intense dramas. Which one looks the most serious?

A: I would have to go with “Up” on this one. That was really good.

Q: Would you rather take a picture or have your picture taken?

A: Doesn’t matter. If I didn’t enjoy taking pictures, I wouldn’t be doing this whole Internet gig. Lol

Q: What was the last film you saw that inspired you or moved you?

A: Rocky.

Q: What’s your favorite way to work out? In the gym, playing a team sport, taking a class or some other way?

A: In the gym.

Q: Are you shy?

A: I can be.

Q: Oday ouyay eakspay igpay atinlay?

A: Say what?

Q: Love or Sex?

A: If I can have both then I would say both, but if I had to choose only one I would have to go with sex.

Q: Can you flare your nostrils?

A: (Flares nostrils) Yeah. Does that answer your question?

Q: Which are scarier: bats or rats?

A: Neither one really although bats can be annoying when they buzz over your head all the time.

Q: Would you prefer to be a movie star or musician?

A: Movie star. I can’t sing to save my life.

Q: Is it hard for you to admit when you’re wrong?

A: Sometimes.

Q: Who knows you best?

A: Not many people.

Q: Who would you say is the sexiest women alive?

A: Finally! Someone asked the magic question! In fact I’ll do better than give out one answer. I’ll give you a top 10 list:

1. Sofia Vergara
2. Jennifer Aniston
3. Jennifer Love Hewitt
4. Scarlett Johansson
5. Katy Perry
6. Natalie Portman
7. Jessica Biel
8. Mila Kunis
9. Jennifer Lawrence (the chick from “The Hunger Games”)
10. Jennifer Garner

Honorable mention goes to Kelly Clarkson. And the reason I gave out a top 10 list for this answer is for a question like this, one answer just simply isn’t enough.

Q: What do you think of Emma Watson?

A: For those of you who don’t know who Emma Watson is, she was Hermione in the Harry Potter movies. I think she’s a good actress and she’s also pretty hot. I can’t wait to see what she does in the future. In fact, I read an article recently on her latest movie called The Bling Ring. And it’s a true story based on the whole Hollywood robbery crime spree that affected many Hollywood celebrities, most notably Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. Not that Paris and Lindsay are saints, mind you. But I saw Emma in her costume for the movie and oh, my god. She is so hot. Them Potter kids are growing up so fast.

Q: What do you think of Nicki Minaj?

A: Less said about her, the better.

Now let’s move on to the Meetme.com questions:

Q: Have you ever have a hard time meeting someone in your town?

A: Yeah.

Q: How many people does someone have to sleep with before you consider them promiscuous?

A: I don’t think that there’s any real set number. It all boils down to behavior.

Q: Do you believe in karma?

A: Yes.

Q: If you had to give up sex or meat for a year which would you choose?

A: I wouldn’t give up either one.

Q: How many movies do you think you’ve seen in your lifetime?

A: Quite a bit. Not sure about how many I actually saw in theaters. I lost track after 2003.

Q: How do you feel about dating when there is an age difference?

A: Depends on what the age difference is, though I wouldn’t have any problem dating someone older than me unless they’re either old enough to be my grandmother or younger than 18 because they’re not worth going to jail for.

Q: If someone was hitting on you and you weren’t attracted to them, how would you handle the situation?
A: Just say the magic phrases: “Not interested” or “You’re not my type” and walk away.

Remember, if you want to ask me questions and don’t have Formspring, you can ask your questions in the comment section below the video or here on the blog. Remember, no offensive questions or comments will be accepted.

Q & A: Team Blackcat Pwns Team Edward

Well, here it is, my latest Q & A vlog is now up. This is my first original video since going on my year-long hiatus from video making.

So without further ado, here we go.

A: Well I do work out with weights and walk, but I don’t really play sports. So I guess you can say I’m sorta athletic. lol.

Q: What would be your favorite Charlie Sheen-inspired cocktail? Would it be made by a Warlock with Tiger blood? Whatever your choice make sure it’s a winning one!

A: It would be a Major League Wall Street Special w/ a 2 1/2 Hot Shot lemon twist. Is that winning enough for you? lol.

Q: If a genie granted you three wishes, what would you wish for?

A: To be rich, to find true love, and to be successful.

A: I haven’t really have too many memories from this summer since this summer has officially started but my favorite memory from last summer was when I went to the Boxing Hall of Fame.

Q: Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

A: Haven’t seen her in eons. Must’ve retired or something. lol

A: Depends on what video games I let them play. lol.

Q: If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

A: Pizza.

A: Not sure. Can’t really remember too much until I was 2. And that reminds me of a quote that I learned during my first semester at HCCC. My writing professor said that no matter how bad of a day you have had and you go around thinking that the day you had was the worst day of your life, keep in mind that you already survived the worst day of your life: The day you were born. Thankfully a lot of us don’t have memories of us being born. If we did, chances are we’d all be in therapy.

Q: Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?

A: I think it was my senior portrait waaaaaaay back in the 1996-97 school year at Red Hook High School.

Q: Could you eat a pizza right now?

A: There’s always time for pizza.

Q: And this is a Twilight question, folks. Breaking Dawn: Part 1 came and went in theaters and of course I did not go and see it and I’ll take your word for it that it sucked and it’s safe to say that I’m definitely not going to see Part 2 when it comes out later this year. Then again, it’s not really required to see the Twilight movies to know they suck. But I will answer this age-old question for you since I know you like it when I rip on Twilight: Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?

A: Neither. I’m Team Blackcat. However, since I’ve heard about how badly Jacob (supposedly the nice guy in the franchise) has been portrayed throughout the franchise and the fact that the girl would choose the sparkly emo whatever he is over over the nice guy is so disturbingly like real life it’s not even funny. And since I’ve been in that situation many a time, I guess you could say I’m Team Jacob.

Q: Is masturbation cheating?

A: No. In fact, some people are aroused by that.

Q: Do you eat dairy products?

A: Some dairy products. Not that I’m vegan or anything like that. I just don’t like certain cheeses and not a fan of milk.

Q: Do you use Google Plus?

A: Yes. I’m on Google Plus. The link is in my Links/Contacts section on this blog.

Q: Between “The Hunger Games,” “Harry Potter” and “The Twilight Saga,” which is your favorite?

A: I’m not too familiar with the Hunger Games series and I’m pretty sure you know by now how I feel about Twilight, so I have to say Harry Potter all the way! Although I do think in all fairness that the Hunger Games movie looks very interesting and I might check it out but I’m gonna wait till DVD for that, not to mention Jennifer Lawrence (the hot girl who stars in the Hunger Games is much hotter than Kristen Stewart. I’m sorry, but Kristen Stewart doesn’t really do anything for me. Just sayin’.

A: I’m pretty sure everyone at one time or another has been bullied. Yes, I have been bullied before but looking back, it wasn’t as bad as the cases of bullying that affect the world today.

Q: Zombie, werewolf, or vampire?

A: Zombie. The werewolf and vampire genre is pretty much dead now, thanks to a certain franchise that will remain nameless. (sneezing) Twilight!

Q: Did you make any New Year’s resolutions this year? If so, have you stuck with them so far?

A: Yes. One of my resolutions is to get back to making videos in 2012 and now that I have my new laptop and HD camcorder, I am actually meeting that goal. As far as the working out resolution goes, I’m definitely not having a problem with that one since I had gym last semester and I have access to the Fitness Center during the summer. I also have another gym course next semester since I need two credits in gym to graduate. So that will definitely not be a problem.

Q: What do you do to stay fit?

Q: See any good movies?

A: Last one I saw in theaters was The Avengers. There’s a few coming out this year that I wanna check out. And no, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is not on the short list. More like the Spider-Man reboot, The Dark Knight Rises, Expendables 2, the new Bond movie “Skyfall…” I could go on.
