No more, you guys! I'm going to start asking people what their favourite shade of sea monkey is or something.1. Would you teach a unit on goth music if you could get away with it?
I probably could get away with it. But given that discussions of music with the Sablets typically end with me shaking my cane and muttering "kids these days" while they search for Miley Cyrus videos on YouTube, I doubt I would willingly put myself through that.
Also, a public high school is not the proper environment to be introduced to goth music, even if I do teach in a lightless concrete bunker. You ought to sneak into goth clubs when you're underage and befriend the DJ, or else stay up late listening to "Beyond the Gates of Hell" on CIUT. God I'm old; neither of those are options now. But I guess there's the internet.2. would you rather have an aerovelocipede, a zeppelin or a robot-drawn carriage?
Good question, old chap! There are several issues to be considered in the choosing of a new Vehicle, including practicality, fuel efficiency, parking, and Pure Awesome, and each Mode of Transport must be considered both for its Merits and Downfalls.
As the point of such Devices is to avoid becoming Stuck in Traffic with the Common Rabble on the Thoroughfares, the robot-drawn carriage, regardless of how Badass it might be, must be excluded from our options, unless it is a Flying Robot Carriage. As well, parking would be a right bother.
An aerovelocipede provides excellent maneuverability, and a certain panache, but provides no shelter from the harsh winters of our uncivilized North, and thus would be Most Impractical for commuting to Scarborough. Besides which, one can only transport oneself and perhaps one's Exceptionally Large feline Acquaintance, and that won't do.
This leaves us with the zeppelin as the most desirable option. Of course, there is always the possibility of Dying in a Spectacular Conflagration, but I believe, good sir, that the Awesomeness is well worth it. 3. What is the worst movie you've seen lately?
I haven't seen an entire movie in forever. The last deeply awful movie I sat through was Battle in Seattle
; the most recent excerpts from a bad movie I've seen were bits of Paranormal Activity
that my kids showed me. I look forward greatly to watching New Moon,
however.4. What is the best comic you've read lately?
The Pros Arch
flashback scenes that snarkitysnarks
made. Not that I'm biased in any way.
In terms of published comics, Lackadaisy Cats.
It's brilliant and hilarious, and you should check it out if you haven't already.5. What would you get with a sudden unlimited clothing budget?
Besides more closets and someone to do my laundry? Lots of long, flapping coats
, and various period clothes in which to play dress-up. Also more boots. I'd commission Fluevog to design some tall boots without heels.
