if you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be?
Jesus. We have alot to talk about
Oh God, Metallica of course! I would love to say a J-Rock band, but you tastes have to be either real specific or real open for me to throw Malice Mizer at you. However, Metallica has almost universal appeal, because their music and lyrics are relate-able to almost everyone! The have written some of the best albums, and songs I've ever heard. To go through life without hearing them is a true shame as they are truly magnificent musicians and song writers.
Superman. Can't stand the fucker. It's really hard to make an all powerful being with absolutely no moral conflict interesting. I mean it can be done, by introducing insecurity, bad decision making, and confusion to the character, you could have something decent. Unfortunately, no Superman writer to my knowledge has ever done that. This is what makes Batman so magnificent. He is just a man, and has the gray morals and conflicts of a man. With Superman, everything is black and white "Truth, Justice, and the American way!".
I would say loneliness might be something you might try to introduce... but oh wait we had that already with that snore fest Superman Returns...
Yeah, they announced they are, but once I start seeing a steady live schedule and a new album, then I'll actually have something to talk about. I'm just afraid it'll kinda be like the X reunion. 2 songs 3 years ago, and a fist full of lives. WOOHOOO!
Try to be. I don't like having bad blood with people. It bears on my conscience too much. I don't like negativity. However, there are some people who have crossed a line so hardcore that I just try to avoid them all but entirely now. And you have to cut really REALLY deep for that to happen.
The interview will be available for download once the new site is opened!
I probably should.... especially when it comes to video games. I have been know to smash controllers, game discs, and even entire systems! However, my brother insists I broke 4 of his Playstations... which is bullshit I broke 1. AND I DON'T POUR PANCAKE SYRUP IN SYSTEMS WHEN I GET MAD MATTHEW! I BEAT THE SHIT OUTTA THEM WITH THE CONTROLLER!
Its chugging along! We just had to switch hosting around, but its on track. We should be able to announce something soon! Stand by and thanx for being patient!
Well, how do you want me to respond to all the perverted questions you sent? I get enough as is and I'm running out of creative answers to dodge them!
I think that would be my Metallica Garage Inc. shirt.. and I bought that 3 months after the album came out. Its really faded and the image is all cracked up, but I love it damnit!
Wtf is wrong with you people!?
So... its starting to get a bit ridiculous. For the past 3 years, I have had these reoccurring dreams about me graduating high school. And the weird thing is... rarely are they ever a flash back. While the same feeling of glee, achievement, and moving on to something better are in the air... they usually take place where I currently am in life without any acknowledgment to anything I have done Tainted Reality related. The story is always slightly different too... and almost always takes me back to my home of 20 years that I moved from around the same time the dreams started. Here... there wasn't really that much going on that was different from the others. Social high point of my life, actually going out and doing stuff as simple as catching dinner with friends, taking my final bus ride home (this pops up a lot for some reason... but I can't even clearly recall it in real life),and this grand feeling of an overall happy ending. There never usually is a plot to it. Just all of this conclusion and finality... I really don't know why I have 'em so often, and now it's at a point where I have 'em at least twice monthly... Why?
This is one of the few dreams that transitioned into what it should, my summer job (though irl, there was a week in between where I ran away to Buffalo, NY to do charity work with my at the time girlfriend... which is alot less noble than it sounds because it really was an excuse for the both of us to spend time together away from our parents who strongly disapproved of our relationship, with her parents to the point that she was not allowed to date me). The only thing is, instead of transitioning to my ice-cream-cart-on-the-beach job that I had back then, it transitioned to my current manager-at-Jack-and-Jill job. This portion started with my boss calling me and yaking on about some bullshit I didn't care about that was holding me up from something important that I was trying to do at the time (irl, this happens almost daily). During the convo, I realize I am running MAD late for work... like I am supposed to be in in 15 minutes and I'm a 2 hour drive from work! I pull an "I know I'm dreaming" and wake up briefly to end the dream and save my self from the self torment of knowing the wrath of my boss for being so astronomically late, and went back to sleep.
Then things get strange.
It's the same setup, current point in life reliving the past... except this was done with my freshman year of college. Though, it wasn't my freshman year. It couldn't have been. I knew alot of people there, I knew the layout of the campus, the surrounding town, the routine.. it was just the feeling in the air that made me think it was 2003 again. That sense of awe and new beginning. I start this dream off by visiting a dorm, meeting with some friends... then Method Man and Redman show up. I high five Redman and ask him what he thought about E3. We start talking games, and ask him about a game that he's in. He talks about it real quick, then I let him make his rounds around the room. I then meander into another room... and join the campus baseball team. I was excited about getting back into sports, as I was a football player in high school. However, because of my stature, I didn't feel I could compete at a college level (a real life notion of mine), so baseball seemed like a viable alternative. Plus this was a winning team, having gone to the championships 2 times in the past 2 years and winning the first time they went (Phillies?). Oh, and their coach was my friend CJ's boyfriend.
After that, I met up with a a dude and a girl who seem to be friends of mine, and I ask them if they enjoy swimming. They say they do and I take them to a near by lake swim club. So, we go there and live it up a bit. Have a good time goofing with each other, enjoying the water and the last breath of summer. We then leave, and I guess the nameless dude had a little too much to drink, and was a being a total dick. He eventually climbed on top of my car and did a whole "I'M THE KICK OF THE WORLD" thing. I try to get him off the roof and smack right into a brick wall... totaling my car. Me and the girl have it out with him briefly. Then... I think its Grand Theft Auto for a moment and just... grab another car! I purposely find a parked, small ass 2 seater just to fuck with this guy. Sure enough, I drive up and the dude's like "hell no" and I'm like "hell yes! Get in!".
So we drive off to the opposite side of the lake we were swimming in, as the sun is setting over the water. This guy starts talking mad smack about how he was the greatest Power Ranger of all time (wtf?) and was gonna prove it right now. This is mainly an argument between him and the girl. Finally, at one point, he whips out a morpher and, BAM, Green Ranger from Mighty Morphin' (WTF!?). She then has enough and morphs into a pink ranger (what series, I dunno). It seems like its gonna be a friendly beat down, and he starts talking mad smack ending with "You got no chance of surviving this babe.". She just nods at me... and I pullout a morpher and morph into a red ranger!!!!!?!?!?1?! (I said something about dinos... and I definitely was not the Mighty Morphin' red ranger, which makes me think i was a dino thunder red ranger, but I was kinda ninja'ed out!). He stands in disbelief for a second then turns to her and shouts "Ok... you now got a 15% chance". We wipe the floor with this mother fucker, in a more magic based fight than I have seen on Power Rangers. She summons a water nymph from the lake, and I'm just whacking him relentlessly with fire balls. The fight is over pretty quickly, he admits defeat and stfu. Me and the anonymous pink ranger, then walk down to the water. We sit up against a sharp dirt drop between the gravel parking lot where we had the fight, and the water, and watch the sunset and the water nymph fly back off to the center of the lake. We talk and laugh for a moment, and as a practical joke... I Jedi grab the nymph and dunk her under water. Me, the ranger, and the nymph have a good laugh... then me and the ranger have the obligatory awkward silence. Then we kiss.
And I wake up.
There's gotta be a point to these dreams... You got any theories?
As if I couldn't tell by your pic!
If I could have any pet... I'd want my pet chihuahua Sparky back...
Last I remember I WAS BEGGING THEM FOR THEIR PHONE NUMBERS COZ I GOT A NEW PHONE AND DON'T HAVE 'EM ANY MORE
I honestly haven't celebrated the holiday in years, and I'm not proud of that. Though I did spend last Halloween in Kabukicho, which was pretty fun.
If I can get over my guilty conscience of doing it the first time!
Ever put a bunch of fruit in your hand and just squish it? More like that
There has been a couple of times I look back on things, and realize without intending it, I came across as a HUGE dick. This is one of the few times I was intentionally an asshole without trying to make someone laugh. Like I was a legit fuck head here. One time was when I had to drop Izzy off at a bank so she could cash her check. There was like no place to park here, at all, so i pulled around to this apartment complex which is part of the parking lot where I could stop to let Izzy out. Just as I do, I notice this old fart who was just chatting with who looked like the bank manager make a B line for me the second I let Izzy out. Izzy isn't even out of the car yet, and he gets right up on me an says "You can't park your car here!". I was all calm about it at first and said "I'm just letting her out", and he kinda gives me a look over and walks back off with the bank manager. I get back in the jeep and a car pulls right infront of us, and since the parking lot is so busy, we can't move. So, I just sat in the driver's seat and went back to a text argument I was having with my friend Sarah. I wasn't paying attention and the car infront of me moved... just as the Bag of Bones came back out of the bank. My friend Jeff was with me and said "Roger, he's coming back". Another car pulls infront of me, but this one I could pass... but at this point, something about this guy was really pissing me off. The way he darted right at me the second the car stopped just so I could let someone out, they way he just about barked that I couldn't park there (not like I was blocking traffic like other cars in the lot), the tone of his voice, and the sheer fact that he was coming straight for my jeep after just exiting the bank... oooooh man was this guy gonna get it.
Sure enough, the first words outta his mouth was "I told you to move your car!". He barely finished his sentence before I exploded on him. Top of my lungs, fire in my eyes, sheer "who the fuck do you think you are?!" tone in my voice, enraged at his inability to have sympathy for an over crowded parking lot, just trying to drop a girl off so she could have some money to get her through the week. And, like I said before, it wasn't like I was in an apartment parking spot or blocking traffic... I was off to the side against a concrete wall! After I was done (I find that somehow when I have done this in the past, I have incredible self control to not curse, which is very unlike me and something I will never understand) he gave me a good stare down like he was gonna swing. I didn't care and just went back to texting. After a moment of trying to stare me down, he walked off. About a minute later, I look up in my rear view and see him right behind my car, joting down my plate number. At this point I was thinking "what's he gonna do? Cry to the cops about something that, at worst, would amount to a $20 parking ticket? Or get off with a whimpering, childish voice "He yelled at me!"? I didn't care. I had enough of this asshole, saw that I could leave now, did, and just called Izzy and told her to meet us across the street.
I still kinda feel like a dick, coz I usually try to be polite to strangers and chalk something up as a mis-understanding, or in most bad case scenarios, kill 'em with kindness, but this guy just had it coming. I have only ever done something like that 3 or 4 other times in my life, and I always feel shaken up after I do, but that was one of the few, and most recent times I was intentionally a jerk.
I never really gave that much thought before. I guess the most useful would be Dr. Manhattan's ability to split himself and his consciousness off multiple times to carry on several different tasks all at once. I say that coz then having a day job wouldn't be an obstacle and I could work on the tours, radio, web content, videos, and comic books that I have to create, while I'm earning money.
HA! better get some other sponsors
I'm starting to get really scared honestly...
Never doubt the crusaders.
About the ringlets... how much ya got?
No, just fear police and crusading parents that would love to see anyone sending, or even receiving the slightest bit of attraction from a minor to the slammer for statutory rape. Trust me, they don't care if its just you saying I'm good looking. They wanna see Bubbha tear my asshole open wide enough so that it can fit a basketball in it. Though, in the reverse (younger boy flirting with older girl), 7 times outta 10, the parents say "That's mah boy!". Don't you just love hypocrisy?
I have 2. V-Day 2004, for bad reasons, and V-Day 2009 for good reasons. Don't wanna drop details on either
Aren't you like 16 anyway?
You live 600 miles away and are therefore, no threat to my safety bubble.
Izzy coz she lives in another dimension called Izzy Land which from what I understand is a magical land of green and purple and cyber
You might as well be! I have no idea who hides behind that SN! And you don't have a URL on your profile!
RB3 TEACHES you how to play real guitar!
Coz Harmonix announced today that The Doors are gonna be in Rock Band 3!
WHO ARE YOU????
Ok, Anon, lemme ask you, why do you feel that way? Seriously?
Because its a well known fact that girls don't get horny. They never do. Ever
I swear all of these sex questions are probably one dude trolling me COZ THEY ARE ALL ANON
Dude I know half of these people personally! WTF
Not really... I'd probably just tell 'em wrong number I guess?
Oh snap! Holy fuck goddamn... see for more than half of the 90's I really listened to only country music... so most of my 90's knowledge is retrospective and not lived in terms of what was more listened to by people our age. So, by singling out what I lived through, it would be Ain't Going Down 'Til the Sun Comes Up by Garth Brooks. As for retrospective... I have to really think about it...
Not really. Over react some times to stuff, but as for being legitimately grossed... I can't remember the last time I was!
And I think you need to listen to the mother fucken Doors!
I really only interviewed them once about 3 1/2 years ago... and that's about the extent of it. The best Japanese band I've seen live, hands down, is MUCC. They were fucking BEASTS and played Bouzenjishitzu which is one of the greatest pit songs EVAR. They had such stage presence and energy, and it was also one of the few J-Rock shows were people weren't afraid to mosh, which is something that's sorely lacking for J-Rock shows.
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE AND WHY DO YOU WANT TO KNOW STUFF ABOUT ME????
Yeah, I have coz of them being a little embarrassing to answer publicly, or fear that the answers would sound like a pathetic cry for help and attention.
Of course they can! and I'm fragile, like glass. And my feelings get hurt easily... and I cry alot,,,
Hey, feel free to start a thread in the discussion section of our facebook page! We would LOVE to do a TR meet-up at Otakon or be invited to a panel!
Umm... I'm big on faces and eyes. I can't explain it, but its always the first thing I notice on a person. As for unappealing... I can say I'm not concerned with butts. Blame Michael Brown
I honestly forget. I think the last time I took a legit IQ test was when I was really young. I remember people being impressed with the score, but I couldn't give ya an exact number.
If it's not all I have, then why such an extreme reaction if I cut it? And how do you know about playing with my hair Anon?! WHO ARE YOU???
I'm kinda strapped for cash right now. How much you offering?
I couldn't help but notice that the only compliments I get are from Anon, which makes me think I'm being trolled!
Where were you 2 questions ago?
We will be there in some shape or form. We are just waiting to see how certain things pan out. But, we will announce on our facebook ASAP
I have had that happen to me twice. They were really difficult times in my life, and I tried to make the best of the time I had left with them. Afterwards, I tried to bridge the gap. One time it worked, the other didn't. That still hurts me to this day.
I've actually contemplated doing it recently. Why? Coz its the only physical trait I have that people seem to find attractive. Makes me feel like a one trick pony.
