1.What was your favorite cartoon as a child?

As a kid, Ziggy.  Then, in high school, I discovered Bloom County.   Funny, thoughtful, brutal.  Though Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes are of course great, Bloom County seemed to go under the radar.  Absolutely still my favorite.  Who can forget Opus, and Bill the cat?  That is them up there, as Deathtoungue.  Also known as Billy and the Boingers.

2. Do you read comic books? Why or why not?

No.  No interested.  The reading I do is mostly biography.  I am interested more in history now.  My reading list, since you asked, is right here.

3. Have you read a book and thought it should be turned into a movie? If so, which book?

Of course, tons.  First choices would be ‘Curse of Lono’ by Hunter S Thompson.  It is a semi autobiographical tale of him traveling to Hawaii in 1980 to study this new culture of running.

4. Do you watch cartoons now if you are a teenager/adult?

No.  I like Fox’s Sunday night shows, but have band practice.  Seth McFarlane is awesome!  If I am flipping through the channels and Sponge bob is on, I usually watch.

5. What is your favorite quote from a television show?

“The Sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli.”  That is Seinfeld.  Almost every single day Seinfeld somehow comes up in life.  In fact, I am watching it right now.  This one is about Mulva.

Who is your latest crush on?

my dog, Maxwell.  He is a perfect angel and I love him.  Look at that picture up there.   Correct me if I am wrong.  He is sleeping right next to me as I type.  That pic up there isn’t really a ‘candid’.  He really is that pretty, he really is that happy,  he really is that dumb, and he really is that eager to please.

Do you have a favorite super hero?


How cartoon or cartoon character?

I don’t understand the question.

Ever solved a crime?

yes, which is why you are still being followed.  We will talk about this later.  We don’t need to have this conversation in front of everyone, do we?

Would you rather: have the power of invisibility, or be able to produce sparks from your fingertips?

invisibility.  I mean,  doy!  What am I going to do with sparks?  make a fire?  I can do that with a lighter.  However, with invisibility, I could look at boobies books all day long.  Yay books!  Plus, I wouldn’t have to work, I could just steal money. It wouldn’t be stealing, really.  I could take the money and use it to pay my bills.   Then, run over there to those recipients and take the money back and give it to the guy I took it from initially.  I mean, I know that looks like stealing.  But, what if no one is missing it?  Does that count?  I am not a monster, am I?

I mean, there are downsides.  You can’t score a girl if you are invisible.  However, to be able to turn that on and off… would be awesome!  I mean, that is what I have read.  That’s all.
