See the glory of love here!


around 1 because

1. One of your scars, how did you get it?

It’s hard to answer because I have so many scars. Most of them are from surgery. My personal favorite non-surgical scar is the three tiny puncture wounds on my upper right arm. This happened one night as a teenager. My cat, in indoor/outdoor combo, was in the habit of coming to my window in the middle of the night, crying to be let in, and then running around my room playing with anything he could get his paws on. So I would inevitably have to carry him downstairs to put him in the garage (where the cats stayed) so I could get some sleep. You had to go through the laundry room to get to the garage, and I didn’t feel like shocking my eyeballs by turning on the light. I had figured the light of the moon was enough to guide my way. Not so. I tripped over a box in the laundry room, which freaked the hell out of poor Curry who dug deep into my arm.

2. What is on the walls in your room?

-A poster of a Royal Shakespeare Company’s version of Macbeth which features a psychedelic drawing of the Porter.
-A print of my favorite painting,“Ophelia” by John Everett Millais.
-A copy of an illustration from “I’m Crazy”, that was printed in the New Yorker, which is the short story that J.D. Salinger adapted into “The Catcher in the Rye”.
-An illustration of Memnoch, the Devil.
-An artistic photograph of a “Jesus saves” sign. I think that’s it. The movie posters are in the living room and the office.
-A vintage-style poster of a Chicago vacation ad. (Dom’s).
-An etching that Dom’s ex-girlfriend did.
Obviously, I dominated the decoration of the bedroom. Sorry, Dom.

What does your cell phone look like?

Like crap, actually. While everyone around me upgrades to camera phones and flip top models, I remain with my primitive little Erickson phone that doesn’t take pictures and the only cool game it has is “battleship”. I don’t mind too much though. If I had a cool, expensive phone, I would only lose it.

4. What music do you like to listen to?

This is a boring question compared to the others. I think most people who would read this already know about my musical taste. I will say this: I must get my hands on The Devil’s Rejects soundtrack.

5. Do you know what time you were born?

Mostly. 11:45am-ish.

6.What do you want more than anything right now?

To get paid to make movies.

7. What do you miss at times?

A few old friends who lost touch or moved away, lazy summers, enjoying going to rock shows.
8. What is your most prized possession?

I would be pretty distraught if I lost my day planner. I don’t necessarily consider it “prized”, but it’s the one thing that I would be really upset over losing because it’s the thing that keeps me organized. And I know this for a fact because someone actually pick-pocketed my day planner in London, thinking it to be my wallet (I’m assuming) and it screwed by shit up for weeks. And of course, Tobe isn’t a “possession”, but I sure do like the little fella.

9. What is your favorite smell?

Old Spice, fresh ground coffee, or pot.

10. Do you get claustrophobic?

Only in elevators. Mainly because I start wondering what the maximum weight of the thing is. And there were a few times in clubs/really crowded bars that I got claustrophobic. But I blame the clientele.

11. If you died tomorrow:

Is that a question? Am I supposed to complete the sentence? If I died tomorrow I definitely wouldn’t be ready. I have a lot left to do, man. Like the dishes.

12. The last person to make you cry?

I think it may have been Roxy when I found out she was moving to L.A. It was partly a happy cry though.

13. What is your favorite cologne/perfume?

Again with the Old Spice.

14. What kind of hair do you like on the opposite sex?

First of all, this question is biased toward heterosexuals. Second of all, I don’t have a definite answer. I’ve dated bald people and people with ridiculous amounts of hair. However, I am certainly partial to hairy men and beards. And I used to have a thing for receding hairlines. What’s wrong with me?

15. Where can you see yourself being proposed to?

This is the part in the meme where I realize it was written by a teenage girl.

16. Do you like porn?

Yes. But, like most things, there’s good and bad porn.

17. What are your five favorite movies?

This is an unfair question and this list is constantly in flux as new movies continue to blow me away. I really prefer it to be broken into genres since my tastes are all over the board. But as it stands, in no particular order:

1. Back to the Future
2. True Romance
3. Cemetery Man
4. The Beaver Trilogy
5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

18. Where can you see yourself going on your honeymoon?


19. Who is the last person you made mad?

I’m going to guess Meep. ;) You only hurt the ones you love.

20. Do you speak a different language?

I think, perhaps, I do. Whenever I try to explain what I do to my mom, I spend at least 20 minutes defining filmmaking terms to her. I also speak fluent British.

21. What was the first gift someone of the opposite sex ever gave you?

Well, if I must play along with your biased sexuality questions…I do believe it was some (really bad) poems and some rose petals in an envelope. I still have them if anyone’s interested in having a laugh. The guy dumped me so it’s ok to laugh at him.

22. Who is your favorite singer?

Since I like so many different bands/musicians, I’m going to modify this to be who I think is the BEST singer. And that person is Freddy Mercury.

23. Favorite band?

Didn’t we cover this earlier in the meme? You’re losing me here…
Fine. The Clash/Oasis.

24. What kind of books do you like to read?

Ones that make me feel something. Like Chuck Palahniuk or Douglas Coupland. And I can’t get enough of the horror comic these days.

25. Favorite Dessert?

Pie. Any kind of pie, but especially fruit pie a la mode.

26. How do you like your coffee?

I try not to drink coffee anymore, but in the most dire situations where I need the caffeine, I like it black or, if it tastes like ass, with a drop of cream.

27. What’s your favorite quote?

How can you pick a favorite quote? The whole point of quotes is that different ones are appropriate in different situations. Right now I’m gonna go with “Any port in a fucking storm.”

28. Would you fall in love with a person knowing that you would not be able to have them?

Which alternate universe does this person live in that they get to pick who they fall in love with?

29. What is the best way to tell someone how much they mean to you?

Dead hooker.

30. Say a number from one to 100.

Ok. 69, dude!

31. Blondes, redheads or brunettes?

Again, I feel like we’re on well-worn territory here. I do like a good redhead though. Jason Flemyng, I’m looking at you.

32. What is the one number you call most often?

Meep’s cell.

33. What annoys you most?


34. Have you ever placed a prank call?

Yes. But I’m not particularly skilled at making them.

35. Who is your current crush?

Optimus Prime.

36. What is your worst fear?

Painful death.

37. Say something to someone you haven’t seen/talked to in a while.


38. Have you ever said “I love you” and not meant it?

Not that I can think of. If I have, it was “I love you too”.

39. What were you doing before you filled out this survey?

Is that what this is? A survey? I was working.

40. If you could get plastic surgery, what would it be?

Does a breast reduction count as plastic surgery? There’s no plastic involved. If counts than I’ve gotten the only plastic surgery I would ever have.

41. Why did you fill out this survey?

Because it’s a well-known fact that memes are my favorite way to waste time at work.

42. What do you like on your pizza?

The admittedly weirdest combination ever: pineapple, mushrooms and jalapenos.

43. What’s more important? Your happiness or the happiness of your significant other?

The happiness of my significant other would make me happy.

44. What’s the last movie you watched?

The Devil’s Rejects

45. What is the last thing you bought?

A movie ticket. I’m about to buy a salad though.

46. What are you wearing?

Take a guess.

47. If you could be granted one wish right now, what would you ask for?

Money to make a movie? I don’t know. I would be wary of taking a “wish” because those Leprechauns are tricky bastards.

48. What is the last book you read?

The last book I finished: “Stranger than Fiction” by Chuck Palahniuk. Current book: “Frequency” by Joshua Ortega. If graphic novels count “V for Vendetta”. I read a lot.

49. What’s the weather like outside right now?

Sunny and hot for Seattle.

50. What are you looking forward to?

Doing absolutely nothing tonight.
