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?

Good question!

* Nicole, my girlfriend
* Food
* Drink (not sugarfree bullshit)
* Cirno
* Windows XP startup sound

What are three things that you're excited for next year?

Well, there are videos by people I look forward to, like Pop Culture Detective and Every Frame a Painting (though he sadly hasn't put out videos in years.)

I don't dedicatedly follow YouTube, though, to the point that the moment someone drops a video I MUST watch it.

What are five things that are guaranteed to make you happy?

"Execute Order 66..."
"Unlimited POWER!"

Yes... the Emperor from Star Wars Episode 3.

Do you follow some channels on youtube or twitch?

Latest would be that Brandon and I actually sat down together and carved jack-o'-lanterns last night and did a pretty good job of it for two people who've never really carved jack-o'-lanterns.

Otherwise, I guess it's my Tina costume I threw together. I got a few people complimenting it and others wanting geek about "Bob's Burgers." The other night we went to see our friends' bands show and another friends came dressed as Louise while Brandon and I were Gene and Tina. It ended up being a thing for some of the bands to mention on stage. "I'd like to thank all the Belcher kids for coming to the show!"

Yeah, it's stupid, but I was proud.

What line from a TV show or movie do you repeat to yourself simply because it brings you joy?

Yes. I sure do miss this place.

What's the latest thing that you have been proud of?

Want this site to make a comeback?

I'm addicted. I have a regular place I go after work. Usual order: "Medium cold brew, room for cream."

My favorite cold coffee is Blue Bottle's New Orleans iced coffee. It comes in a little milk carton, like the ones from school. Been drinking it for years, and holy fuck is it amazeballs over ice cream.

What would make you de-friend someone on Facebook, Twitter, etc?

I actually just watched a video on what powers the Queen of England actually has... which is surprisingly a lot. It made me wonder how different the country, and world, would be if she had less restraint... and what happens once she passes.

What is your opinion on Cold Brew coffee or cold coffee in general?

Mint and chip.

What's the last YouTube video you watched that really made you think?

I have not heard anyone make this claim, and I don't know if I would agree with it. One the one hand, in terms of effects and such, yes... we can do a lot more now than we could before... but we have lost some things in doing that. Game of Thrones can make a dragon fly, but Star Trek TNG made a borg cube out of bits of model kits that looked pretty damn realistic and intimidating... I don't think you can find many people who can do that now. Pixar makes great CGI animated movies, but can anyone do the old style animation or stop motion? In short, we have advanced, but I think we also got lazy.

And don't even get me started on how repetitive shows have become... how many Law and Order or CW Superhero shows do we need?

Side note on that book group... we read one book a month, because "more is too much". I will have to look into some of those titles. For March I suggested "The Martian Chronicles"... I and the other heavy reader voted for it at least. My April suggestion is "Children of Blood and Bone"... let us see how that one goes.

Snap decision: You are offered an ice cream in the flavor of your choice, what do you pick?

Hah, I was in one of those. All the ladies kept talking about Twilight, 50 Shades, Nicholas Sparks, and other sappy chick-lit when they weren't talking about wine, etc.

My recs will make no sense, but here goes:
- "Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family" by Nicholas Pileggi (It's not very long, it's based on a true story, and it was later turned into the film, "Goodfellas.")

- "Animal Farm" by George Orwell (It's not long at all, it's classic, it's cautionary and deep, loads to talk about.)

- "Watchmen" by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons (Yes, it's a graphic novel, but everyone SHOULD read it. It's one of the greatest stories of the superhero genre.)

- "Sirens of Titan" by Kurt Vonnegut (I'm not completely up on the literary sci-fi genre, but I liked this book, which came recommended by someone of whom I have high regard.)

I figure, if you're into YA, you probably prefer SHORT books. Not necessarily short stories, but books that you can plow through within a week. All of these, depending on the amount of time you have, can be read through in that amount of time.

Would you agree with society's belief that we are "living in the Golden Age of television," and if so, why?

I feel you on the turkey, though I have found shoving a bunch of herbed butter under the skin before baking apparently gets rid of that problem... but you have to baste it. A lot. But it's SO worth it.

What I am looking forward to? Heh... probably obvious, but moving. The weather warming up. Just... so many things.

What book would you recommend for a book group filled with people that are used to young adult fiction?

Outside of just eating it reheated on a plate, I've only ever made them into sandwiches for Brandon and me to eat on the road on our way home from his grandmother's in Arizona.

I'm not much of a fan of leftover Thanksgiving turkey unless it was a GREAT turkey, which I've maybe only had a couple times. Almost all of them have been dry and flavorless, and I feel like an asshole for saying it out loud.

What are you looking forward to right now?
Posts: 9587/9638
Hmm,,,, fruit would probably be strawberries (hard choice)... veggies... at the moment I am kind of on a leek kick.

What is your favorite way to use leftover turkey?

Now that you ask... I don't remember last week very well at all, haha. Guess my short term memory is resorted to just a few previous days. I think I remember the weekends a little better, so the work week is kind of a blur.

What's your favorite fruit and vegetable?

Brandon and I primarily use his desktop computer that's in our room. It's got his flat screen monitor and our flat screen TV, hanging on the wall, linked so you can drag the cursor and windows over to it. We'll use that to watch Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube, etc.

Otherwise if someone's using it, the other will just sit in the same room on their phone. We recently bought an Apple off a friend, which Bran put in a spare bedroom to record and engineer music, but it's not nearly as used by us.

How well do you remember when things happened? For example, can you remember each day of last week and what you did, where you went, who you talked to on each day individually?

Jeans and hoodie.

What's your main PC? A laptop or desktop? How many monitors do you have hooked up?

This one sort of breaks my heart because I didn't realize I'd just beaten story mode on "Assassin's Creed IV" until the credits were rolling and I'm internally screaming, "This is IT?! WHAT!?!?!"

Literally just beat it 20 minutes ago, and I'm still raw about it. I thought there was more story after this.

What does your "cool" outfit look like?
Posts: 11509/11607
I seriously think the last two I bought were The Force Awakens and Rogue One like a year ago.

What was the last video game you beat?
