I've lived in the suburbs all my life, though I've always loved going to the cities. My favorite being New Orleans, followed by Seattle. L.A. still ranks pretty high since I've always lived right next to it.


How much interaction with people do you do in your job?

Only videogames really, if that weren't so obvious hehe. I really don't have many other physical "things" I collect much of. My movie/anime collection is minuscule in comparison. Clothes, etc, everything else I could easily replace or swap out after years, but I value my games more than most materials I own.

Do you prefer the suburbs, city, or super small towns out in the fields?

A few. Once while I was driving. Got rear-ended while sitting at a stop sign. I was so irritated with the experience I had with the other driver and the cops that I booked a cruise a day later with the money my aunt left me from my grandmother's estate.


What sorts of things do you collect and why?

Browsing social media, reading, and video games for the most part... unless we do an adventure.

Have you ever been in a car accident?

These days Spotify is life. I hate playing the regular radio at work when I have to drive the company vans and I can curate vast playlists for every occasion.


What do you do in your leisure time between work, school, etc?

Depends. If there's a time crunch, flying.

I've always been a road trip enthusiast, though, especially when it comes to driving through and seeing the world at my own pace, stopping in towns and trying to local food along the way. Before the honeymoon, I'd never driven across the country before, now I'm so happy I got to experience all these amazing cities and sights.


What is your favorite amusement park attraction?

"The Hangman's Daughter" by Oliver Pötzsch. It was a really interesting murder mystery in 1660 Bavaria and the kindle version actually has animated illustrations. Only downside is they don't work when you have the background set to black.

Donuts are either maple Amish donuts, freshly made, or double chocolate cake donuts.

What is your preferred method for long-distance travel?

The buttermilk bars from Primo's.

The best donut I ever had was the chocolate malted chip that Sidecar Doughnuts did as a collaboration with Salt & Straw. That is probably the most hipster thing I've ever said. Anyway, it was like a soft chocolate chip cookie with a crunchy outside.

Otherwise, the fresher from the fryer the better. I prefer cake donuts to yeasty ones.


What's the last great book you read?

I honestly love Ramen thesedays for some reason... I grew up eating the chicken flavor all the time but I only like beef now. Dash in some pink salt, pepper, the seasoning, and toss in some lettuce, maybe with some lunch meat too... and it turns into a solid meal. I still wonder if it's healthier than frozen meals too, haha. Even though I know all those preservatives are bad.

Sadly I've bean eating fast food a little again, haha. Arby's is right around the block from my place so it's easy to grab on the way home... and I have a bunch of Steak & Shake gift cards for some reason. On that note, I don't know if it's just the local one here or what, but their fries are terrible! Good burgers though.

I've noticed dark soda really messes me up though, even though I drink coffee these past few years... so I guess it's something to do with the syrupy crap and sugar, rather than caffeine (unless soda just had 100x more than dark coffee even?) So I just stick with sprite, but I rarely even finish a full soft drink thesedays. You can even feel the sugar and junk between your teeth! Nothing really soothing about it.

I'm finally trying to branch out a bit from Stouffers frozen meals... I've upgraded to getting some Marie Callender's meals lately and those are pretty awesome.

Now I've fallen into a trend of getting some McDonald's breakfast after my Sunday morning grocery run since it's on the way home... but I've also been on a Dunkin Donuts kick Saturday mornings thesedays too... and sometimes might pickup a few extra donuts for a snack at other points in the weekend, lol.

Well that was a lot...

What's your favorite donut?

I like milk chocolate, but most have just gotten too sugary these days. I know there's a world cocoa shortage, but it's really turned into basic chocolate just tasting like vanilla and sugar.

I know red velvet is supposed to be chocolate. When you get real red velvet, it actually does taste like it not Playdoh or vanilla with red dye. Still, I haven't eaten red chocolate. I should track it down.


What's your cheap, fast dinner plan?

Food and sometimes alcohol... but mostly food.

As the great chocolate time descends upon us, what are your preferences? Dark, milk, white... bonus question of what do you think of this new "red" chocolate?

I took lessons for violin and piano, but never went past being able to play a few songs on either.


What is your go-to vice (smoking, drinking, complaining, porn, etc)?

That's a good one... I've been at a loss for the last several years now. Especially when dubstep really took off and even took over trailers, etc. I can't think of any mainstream modern artist I like or know much about. It's bizarre how society worships a bunch of artists that are either ancient or passed away for years at this rate. We're never going to have some icon like Michael Jackson or whatnot ever again, if that makes sense. Nobody right now is going to be remembered 10 years from now or whatever. lol

Do you or have you ever played any instruments?

I guess it depends on your definition of poster. I had a medieval brass rubbing I did in 7th grade, mounted with a string on one wall, and a print of a painting someone did of Frida Kahlo getting raped by a skeleton on another wall, hung up with pins over my bed.

Oh and a gun range target of a zombie that I shot up. That's taped over Brandon's desk.


Do you "get" music these days?

I've actually noticed that bending forwards, as if you were working to stretch your lower back touching your toes, it also helps my neck and head a lot. I'm guessing since that gets some blood rushing up in there and moves some things around. Then slowly roll up neck relaxed and all.

How many posters do you have hanging up?

Besides cell phones in general?

I honestly don't know if I would call any product life changing. I would have said the bed frame from Ikea for getting rid of my back pain, but that has finally come back after months... so now, I don't really know. Maybe Epsom salt?


What do you do to get rid of nasty muscle cramps in your neck and shoulders?

Believe it or not, I have not played much Smash Bros. I've been to parties where most of the gathering is in the living room, watching everyone play. People with Gameboys and Switches joining in on the screen. Eventually they all get bored and everyone plays as the same character in seven different colors.

So.. uh.. Pikachu?


What product has changed your life?

Hmmm, does broccoli cheddar count? haha. I love soup but I honestly rarely have it. Miso soup is great too, chicken noodle, tomato, love all of it.

Who's your favorite Smash Bros character(s)?

It's one of the few things I get superstitious about -- talking about upcoming things to which I'm looking forward -- because it's as though I always jinx them and then they fall apart.

I actually wrote out something of a list and then got anxious and deleted it.

I'll just say, I guess, that I'd really like to find a new job. I've been pretty unhappy with this one for a while now. I'd also like to travel some in the next year, and I'm making some attempts to put that into motion.


What is your favorite kind of soup?
