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.

What the cat said.

What the cat said.

Well here we are. The last day of 2008. And what better way to end the year than with another snowstorm to annoy me. But instead of getting into another rant about how bad the snow’s been here in Central New York, I’m going to do another retropective on the year 2008.

The year 2008 has been a really historic and important year. For one thing, America elected Barack Obama as the first-ever black President of the United States but it’s not just the fact that he was elected. The whole election campaign was also a major historic event because of the fact that it also had a female vice-presidential candidate that was more or less reviled by the world. Also in 2008 news, “The Dark Knight” dominated the box office thanks largely to the late Heath Ledger as the Joker (may he rest in peace); and how about that Michael Phelps, eh? And it ends on a pretty high note because we finally saw OJ Simpson go to jail for armed robbery and kidnapping.

For me, other than the fact that I officially took my Internet life to the next level and started making YouTube videos, the year was more or less uneventful. Even as this year ends, I officially have 320 subscribers on YouTube and growing. I also added Facebook and Twitter to my Internet list. I also have obtained a side job with the Historical Society mowing their lawn and shoveling them out. Speaking of the Historical Society, my book is now officially on permanent hold because I found out about another book that is being written that pretty much parallels what I’m doing. I may decide instead to do a video for YouTube.

As far as 2009 goes, I have really high hopes that it will be my breakout year on the Internet, especially on YouTube. I have several goals I hope to accomplish there but perhaps the biggest goal I would like to achieve next year is that I want to get partnership on YouTube so I can start making money on my videos. As far as what directions I want to go with my videos, I have a variety of ideas that I want to try out, like maybe do some videos that are based on what I write here on this blog and I might do a tutorial video because I had received some comments that asked me for advice about how to make cat videos. Besides, I hear that tutorial videos do really well on YouTube.

Tonight is probably the worst night for me to work, especially since tonight is New Year’s Eve and usually you’re supposed to be with a loved one or with a new relationship instead of being at work. Tonight is really going to suck. Hopefully that will change next year.
