Answering My Own Tumblr Questions v. 1
Remember the MySpace days when questions would come across in a bulletin, and you just answer them all and post them so that everyone on your friends list could get a feel as to who you were? Remember in the LiveJournal days people would do the same thing? Does anyone here remember CreateBlog? No? Just me? Ok.
I told crunchybastards I would get around to doing this because when I reblog questions, and the, “send me a number and I’ll answer,” posts, I get no responses. And since a good 1000 of you are brand new and have no clue who the hell I am, I might as well just fill the shit out. My way.
I’ll do these sporadically.
Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?
50 Cent. I want to have a laugh with that man, geek out about KRS-ONE, tell him stories about the military to feed his fascination of the Marine Corps, and pick his brain about business ventures.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I do not want to be famous in the sense that my face is plastered all over reality television. I want to create a brand that is famous but creating something of benefit to a niche community. Additionally, I want to enjoy the monetary reward of such success.
Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you’re going to say? Why?
It’s polite, direct, and yields the best results.
What would constitute a perfect day for you?
The perfect day for me would entail sleeping in a bit at my comfortably sized Okinawan home with a view of the ocean. I would then fix myself (and my partner, if I’m in a relationship at that point) a nice breakfast and savor every bite.
After getting dressed, I would drive my AE86 along the coast, and find a nice location to take photos. Appreciating the beauty of the land I deem paradise is important to my mental health.
At some point in the day, I’d eat at Sauce Live restaurant, spend some time at an arcade, have a glass of bourbon to celebrate the sunset, before going home for a shower.
My day wouldn’t be over. After a shower, a snack, and perhaps an intimate encounter with my hypothetical partner, we would then leave to drive the mountain roads for hours on end until my body is too cramped to remain in a racing seat.
Upon the conclusion of a perfect, peaceful, day, I would go home and rest, only to wake up the next morning and do it again.
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you choose?
Assuming good mental health, I’ll live the rest of my life with the body of a 30 year old.
Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?
If not in some horrific, speed-induced, car accident, I could quite possibly go, in dignified peace, by my own hand at a later age.
For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?
I wouldn’t change anything because I would not be the man I am today. I would, however, raise my children far differently. They would be encouraged to follow their dreams.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?
The ability to accumulate large sums of money effortlessly. Money buys happiness.
Is there something that you’ve dreamt of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
Yes, there is. I haven’t done it because I lack the finances to do so.
What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?
What is the greatest regret of your life?
Leaving Okinawa last year. I let myself down. Hence why I’m aggressively trying to go back so I can achieve my dreams.
What do you value most in a friendship?
Honest, healthy, consistent, support.
What is your most treasured memory?
Long drives in a Chevelle with my grandfather up and down the eastern seaboard.
What does friendship mean to you?
What roles do love and affection play in your life?
I need love and affection to be emotionally and mentally healthy.
How do you feel about your relationship with your mother?
I love my mother. We are close, to a degree, but the relationship is complicated. I’m much closer to my grandmother.
