What's good with y'all this Wednesday? Glad to see y'all are still tuned in now that I'm not here as much...but I promised I'd always have time for your questions, and I meant that shit...so here's "Formsprung"!
Thoughts on Amy Winehouse?
I wasn't a superfan, but I appreciated her music. I'd be lying if I said it was a total shock, but it hit me in kind of a personal place actually...really shows that somebody can be young, vibrant, and have all the talent and success in the world and still potentially be an extremely unhappy person. You could have been so much more, Amy...now you'll just be a couple of albums, a bunch of Hot Topic t-shirts and a Wikipedia entry. It's crazy...I just refuse to let that be me. (Hard) drugs are bad, kids.
what is your biggest regret in life?
Not realizing what I wanted to do in life sooner instead of wasting damn near 4 years in this manila clusterfuck, actually...
What are your top 3 movies ever?
I'm gonna do this really quickly before I start thinking about it...otherwise I'll be sitting here all day. In no real order:
1) Training Day
2) The Matrix
(That looks good enough for me not to go "what the fuck, I put Movie A instead of Movie B?! Oh shit, I forgot Movie C, and Movie C2: The Sequel"! later.)
ever won anything?
The last thing I won in a contest was that costume contest last Halloween (green spandex has that effect on people) the prize was a bottle of disgusting alcohol, which could still get me drunk, so I eventually forced down my throat. I'm entering a screenwriting contest next month, so I'll keep ya posted.
Gold Jewelry Yay or Nay
Not really for me...but as long as you don't walk around with a gold scorpion medallion looking like somebody's uncle at a cookout, you're good.
Do you know of a decent vapouriser..thats cheap? I wanna cut the carcinogens :)
I can dig it. "Decent vaporizer" and "cheap" don't come in the same sentence though, trust me. That's why I don't have one (yet). Wish I could have been more help...
Do to you listen 2 oldies? if so what is your fav oldie song?
Sometimes...my parents used to listen to their old people music back when I was a lad, and some of it stuck to me. I know a few Earth, Wind and Fire songs, enjoy the occasional Hall and Oates session, and even stumbled on a Billy Joel track recently. Can't forget Rick James either. I do really like the Temps though. As for my favorite track of theirs...do you even have to ask?
"It was a day in Sepetember..."
Fav Strain of "medicine"
Heh...actually, I don't get to combust much of the name brand stuff lately...most of the shit I get now comes in generic white bags reading "Economy weed, 2 week supply" in bold black letters....not that there's anything wrong with that. I do remember really liking Bubblegum Kush tho...it somehow actually smells that way.
How long could you last without your mobile phone?
24 hours...I did it once.
Did you hear Netflix is hiking their prices?
Sure did. Got the email like everybody else. I was pissed off like everybody else too and still think it's kind of a dick move to pull in a time when people have to make choices like "gas or lunch at work today"...but honestly, as of right now it's still the best thing going. To steal my boy Robbie's Facebook status from a couple weeks ago: "Unlimited access to thousands of movies and TV shows for less than the price of 2 movie tickets? What a rip-off!" I'll drop a DVD or 2 from my plan and be aight.
Wacka Flocka Flame yay or nay?
None for me, thanks...I'm not too much of a Flamer.
Your wifes hair Perm or Natural?
Hmm...as long as it looks decent, I don't get too much into a woman's hairstyle choices. Truthfully, I barely notice as long as I can get my fingers out of it when I pull it...so I say if natural works for you, go for it. However, I will say if a chick is walking around looking like that thing from the Addams Family's black cousin, that bitch needs to be slapped with a perm.
Top 5 things you wanna do b4 you die?
Well, I had a post on that a while back and it hasn't changed much...here's an excerpt:
"2) Lead a spontaneous choreographed-looking mass public dance...I don't even dance like that, but it would be cool as shit to have random folk in the streets singing some song and gettin their inner Chris Brown (good Chris...he just dances...only Dark Chris goes around gnawing on bitches and carryin on) on in the middle of the street musical-style. People in suits swinging around traffic lights, ties flowing in the wind, hoodrats pop-lockin' on the sidewalk, some dude with a sunni, a white tee and a durag could have a dance solo...seems like fun."
Have you ever been disrespected?
I'm sure everybody has...never been pulled out of a vehicle in the streets, stripped to the boxers and sent home like in "Paid in Full" or anything...but 2 incidents come to mind.
The first was just yesterday...I forgot my work computer password and called down to the tech department to have it reset. Unfortunately, the place is staffed with filthy Eagles fans , one of whom (hi, Karen!) changed my password to something hateful and Cowboyphobic, which I was forced to type so I could keep working on that TBX mov--uh, that movie. My vengeance is forthcoming. There will be blood.
The other was a couple years back when I played on a flag football team here at the office (yes, once upon a time I liked this job) and a guy on the other team took his TD celebration way too far, throwing the ball in my face. As you can imagine, I wasn't pleased...so when we took our turn on offense, I made sure the guy was on me when I went out for a pass. The next ball that came my way, I intentionally underran it. He made the pick, but I was able to dislodge the ball (and possibly a rib) by disregarding his flag and spearing the shit out of him. We forfeited the game, but I feel I won. That story still gets brought up around the office every so often haha...
!!NEW ORLEANS!! and fuck your current job, you're a writer.
Thanks, man...means a lot to hear somebody else say it...
Damn, that was a ride. This is why I'd never be who I plan to be soon without y'all...seriously, I appreciate the living hell out of it. Aight, until next time, umf'ers!
