Writer's Block: Back to the Future
Given the choice of time travel, would you go back in time or forward?
Forward to a point where time travel is common enough to do either. And as a bonus, I'll also add in extra-dimensional travel...

Writer's Block: Tough Choices
If forced to give up one, which would you choose: love, friendship, or family?
My love is my family, my best friend is my wife. I'll take death first...

Writer's Block: Occupied
Have you participated in Occupy Wall Street? Why or why not?
Two good reasons..
(1) I'm currently employed and cannot do so.
(2) Nobody wants me there until things get really bad. I've participated in the anti-nuke rallies during the Cold War. I've no qualms about throwing a teargas canister back at the police. And that was the badass German cops that have no police brutality laws...

Writer's Block: Hey Mr. DJ, keep playing this song…
What music lifts you up when you’re feeling down?
Angry music. Give me bucketfuls of hate, some time at the range to imagine 230 grains of jacketed lead smashing through bone, genitals and intestine. I picture the douche that molested my daughter, the cops that do nothing. I think of the politicians that have passed laws that protect scumbags and leave the victims to try to pick up the pieces. Ministry is screaming in my ears, lifting me up from helplessness to fury, the kick of the pistol in my hand a percussive sledgehammer. I imagine shrieking as they look down at the wreckage that used to be their body. Give me anger and hatred. Let me give them bullets...

Writer's Block: Love to hate
Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?
Captain Hook. Hate? Not him. But Peter Pan and the Lost Boys I absolutly loathe. In the movie "Hook" I was cheering on Dustin Hoffman and desperatly hoping to see him finish off Robin Williams.

I've always hoped someone in Hollywood would produce a movie wherein Peter and the Lost boys were a bunch of vampires bent on stealing away children, and the good capain and his crew were hunters of the undead...

Writer's Block: Children of the sun
How do you think aliens would regard our society? If an alien ship landed in your backyard, would you run away or bring a bundt cake?
I suspect we would be viewed as livestock or specimens. As for an alien ship landing in my backyard, if they could navigate to Terra fron intersteller distance, I assume they would know to contact SETI. Therefore a landing near me makes me nervous. In light of my desire to be neither dinner nor display, I intend to keep my eyes shut (I've heard rumor they make you feel calm and relaxed when you meet their gaze) and try to chew off any bits I can get hold of.

*Holy Grondar! That thing just bit off pogSsna's ovipositer...*

So the headlines read "Republicans plan to scrap health-care reform."

Thanks you lowlife cunts. Ever since Nixon decided to help make insurance companies more profitable, the health-care of Americans has plummeted. Every greedy fuck out there that would sit on your ass and watch someone die rather than lose a penny of your hard earned cash: I hope you die of colan cancer..

Here's the problem, we as Americans have lost our courage. Our forefathers were willing to risk being hanged to create a country better than any before. Thousands have fought to their dying breath to make this a better nation. And now we are cowed by our own government. The French have more balls than we do. Their government is terrified of them. If they don't like the way things are going, they protest, they march, THEY RIOT!

Peaceful demonstrations don't work anymore. The fat-cats sit secure in their offices and sneer at us. There's only one way to truly fuck them. Next million man march, carry a few fist sized rocks and throw them. Imagine Congressman FatAss seeing one million rocks raining down on his turf. Bring a Molotov cocktail to the protest. Even if one person in twenty does so, we could burn all of Washington to the ground.

Bring a pistol... If every demonstrator brought a cheap .38 in, that's six MILLION shots. Think the fatcats (if they survive) might listen then? This is OUR country. The rich may own 95% of it now: So what if we take it back from them by force? Remember the French revolution. It's damn hard to enjoy your million dollar bonus if you get killed.

It's time to stop being nice, it's time to stop trying to reach a peaceful agreement, it's time to WAKE UP AND FIGHT! It's time to kill as many bastards as we need to. It's time to revolt against the Plutocracy.

Writer's Block: Fly me to the moon
Do you think space exploration is important? Is it worth the billions our governments spend?

Yes. as a race, we NEED to be able to migrate. Eventually, the planet will not support our form of life. Be it comet,astroid, global warming, iceball, supernova, whatever, we will go extinct if we do not evolve, adapt and find a new niche.

Writer's Block: Boldly going
Which fictional world would you choose to visit, and why?

My own, and why? Because being a God has its appeal...

Writer's Block: Me 10 Years Ago
How would your best friend have described you ten years ago? What about today?
My best friend busted me in front of my wife. I commented that I thought I was fairly mellow, and he cracked off that I was the least mellow person he'd ever known.
"You're the only person I've ever known to drink tequila by the eight ounce glass and pick a fight with eight people at once while sober!
I stood there for a moment and replied "I've never picked a fight with EIGHT people at once! I think the most I've ever done was four..."

Capitalist pigf*ckers
So my boss starts off with "The good news is the company is at 100%". Then he goes on as to how he wants more. And if he doesn't get more, he'll cut hours and pay. And keep doing this. I do a bit of quick math and look at him. "You realize you have just written down a plan to cut peoples pay below the federal minimum wage" says I. He gives me this look and asks what my point is.

So I walk out. This greedy f*cker has six kids, all going to private school. Three trucks. At least two restored classic cars. A stagecoach and team of horses. Lots of land. Two houses. His own business. Several other bits of commercial real estate that he rents out.

I guess it's not enough for him. He's willing to take food from my family for money for his shit. I hope to see the end of capitalism in this country. I'm so sick of seeing this done over and over in this country. The rich f*ck over anyone they want, to get more and more things, they think is more important than others lives.

And that's the rub. There is enough wealth, enough food, enough resources to feed and shelter EVERYONE on the PLANET! For greed, for love of money, people do the worst sort of evil. Stuff youselves on $50 steaks while others starve. Buy 5 houses and let them be empty while 5 families go homeless. Let them eat cake...

And someday the blade will fall. Just as it has in the past before. Just as it will as long as someone thinks their pocketbook is more important than anothers life. And I've learned to hate so well that I'll be cheering with the rabble as the blood hits the cobblestones.

Who knows? Maybe I'll be denied my chance to cheer for death. Maybe I'll get to see a world where my daughter won't have to survive what I have. All you greedy bastards better hope so. Because I do want you to suffer. And scream. And die.

Writer's Block: Search for intelligent life
Do you believe there is other intelligent life in distant galaxies? If no, why not? If yes, do you believe this is something to be feared and avoided or actively sought out?
Yes I belive in other forms of intelligent life. However, if I encounter any aliens, my intention is to keep my eyes closed and try to chew off any appendage I get hold of.

If they want to have a peaceful encounter, then they will be contacting us openly as a species to species communication.

Writer's Block: News development
What's the first major news event that you remember hearing about as a child? Where did you learn about it? How did it impact your world view?
I watched the lunar landing, live on a small black and white television. To this day, it gives me some small hope that this rock chunking species of bipedal primates might survive and evolve to become something grander..

Writer's Block: Brush with stardom
Have you ever stumbled across a celebrity in your daily life? Was it more or less exciting than you would have expected? Do you have any interest in meeting media stars?
John Travolta and Gibby Hayes from the Butthole Surfers. That I know of. I used to manage Amy's Ice Cream in Austin, Texas. All kinds of folks wandered in. Truthfully, the only celebrities I'd have like to have met and gotten to know would be: Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Nicholson. And that's a maybe on Jack...

Writer's Block: What is your life sentence?
How would you describe your life so far in a six-word sentence? How often would your 'life sentence' change?
Holy crap! I'm still alive?! Dude...

I refuse to live your way.
My rules, my life, my questions.
In other words, screw 'em all!

Writer's Block: Between the slices
What's your favorite sandwich? Do you make it yourself or go somewhere special to buy it? What's in it?!
All mine: Start with auted onions and fresh jalepenos, I toss those on top of a hamburger that's cooked rare, melt chedder over the whole mess, grill the bun in the grease, toss in some green leaf lettuce and homemade guacamole as I stack it together, and wash the whole thing down with a Schlitz. I call it "Meat is Tasty Murder".

Writer's Block: Arts v. smarts
Given the choice, would you prefer to be a world-class (visual or performing) artist or an intellectual genius? Which, in your opinion, would facilitate a more fulfilling career and social life?
Interestingly, career and social status follow intelligence up to a cut off point, past that the geniuses make less money and care less about social standing (a generality, but evidence does support it). Still, I would rather not be an artist with those choices. I'd prefer to be an unkown genius with a perchant for art...

Writer's Block: Money to burn
If you were given two weeks off with an unlimited supply of money that was only good for those two weeks (anything you purchased, invested, or saved would disappear when the two weeks were up), what would you do?
Conquer and slay a small island/
country. There'd be no one to kick me out later, so I just think I'd stay and declare myself "la Grande Fromage."

Writer's Block: Compare and contrast
What ten words would you use to describe yourself? If your friends were asked to describe you, how closely would all the lists match up?
Evil,sadistic, black-hearted Sith Lord has cute, little apprentice.

The folks that know me and my darling daughter understand completely...
