  1. What meals bring you back to your childhood

Skip.  no one cares.

  1. If you could describe your life with an already existing song title, what would the title be?

Skip.  no one cares.

  1. What are tricks that corporate America uses to get us to spend more money?

Everything.  I have been lucky enough to see a lot of the world.  There is nowhere even close to us in how much corporate America dictates and runs everything… like policy and congress and culture.  It’s scary.  There are some more stories about this in my Travel Thairies section below.  It’s my humorous travelog.

  1. What band or artist would you buy their latest album without hearing a note of it?

Skip.  no one cares   fast forward to the next question.

  1. Who is the best sitcom character of all time?

Christopher Lloyd as Rev Jim Ignatowski.  The show Taxi only ran a few years, like 40 years ago.  It is the reason you have heard of Andy Kaufman.  Christopher Lloyd does a performance that exceeds any acting job in history.  At first glance, he may seema disposable character… a Falstaff for your C story line.  That is because you are a dumb monkey.  He has done a ton of great other roles.  This is why I have written before about him, he is America’s greatest character actor.  Judge Doom?  Yeah.  a Klingon?  Sure.  Uncle Fester?  You betca!  How about the lead of the Back to the Future films, as Doc Brown?  He even goes back to the classic ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’.  Y’all remember Jack Nicholson, and rightfully so.  And Nurse Ratched… ooh boy.  That terrific actress just recently passed away.  She got an oscar for that role.  Also in that movie were future Taxi alums Danny Devito and Christopher Lloyd.

Take a look.  That is Danny Devito front and center, and Lloyd is the freaky tall sideshow all the way on the left.
