Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition!

I’ve been seeing this everywhere and dragonjen92576 brings up a great point (man I wish LJ had trackbacks) in how we can read each other’s journals, but don’t really know each other. So, if there’s anything you would like to know about me (or perhaps any additional questions from a couple of posts ago), feel free to drop a question and I’ll try my best to answer them. 🙂

well, since I’ve only known you for a day or so, what’s the story behind your username?

Not sure if there is a rule for only one question. Being the rule breaker that I am, I’ll go for more 🙂

I’m pretty sure you mentioned you are a musician. What types of instruments do you play? Have you ever been in a band? How long have you played and what got your started? Who is your musical inspiration and/or idol?

Yes I am actually. However with this whole doctor/heart/shaky thing I had last week, I’m not getting into anything else job wise yet. I have no clue what’s in store for me until the next couple of weeks when test results get back. I don’t want to start at the local Best Buy if it means I’m going to have to get surgery or something like that and miss work (and eventually get fired) at the second job. Once I get the clean bill of health, I’ll either look for another one or start at the Best Buy near my place.

Hehe, no problemo at all!

Well, back when I was 16, I started playing the guitar mostly out of boredom at home. See, I had pretty strict parents who never really let me out, so rather than go insane watching TV all of the time, I decided to learn how to play the guitar and be just like James Hetfield of Metallica. I never strove to be the solo guitarist that most people seem to be, instead I wanted to be the one (like James) who led down the super nasty riffs and licks and drive the beat of the song forward. I picked it up very quickly and within a year I could play essentially the entire score of Metallica albums to that date (from Kill to Justice). Then I started to learn how to play other bands songs and mostly stuck to hard/classic rock and metal.

A bunch of friends and I got together in high school and did a mostly Metallica (also some Megadeth, Slayer, AC/DC, Queen, Anthrax) cover band for a few months in this one kid’s basement. Then college came and we all drifted away and little by little I stopped playing as college and real life kept on going forward. Every once in a while I pick up the guitar and start playing some old tunes, but I forgot pretty much everything I have learned. It’s pretty funny, because I’ll pick up the guitar and play but the fingers forget what the muscles are telling them what to do. *lol* Not sure if you understand what I mean, but it’s like they’re trying to wake up from a very long slumber. I’m lucky if I can play Stairway anymore nowadays! lol. It’s been pretty much close to a year since I opened up my case to bust out the guitar. Luckily though, my brother picked it up and he’s pretty decent himself. Every once in a while when I’m back at my parent’s place, he’ll ask me how to play something and I’ll try and remember it and slough through it and he’ll pick it up from there.

As far as my inspiration, it’s generally always been two people. James Hetfield and Stevie Ray Vaughn. James because well, he’s the frontman for the greatest band ever (well, aside from that piece of shit album they put out last). As far as Stevie, the first time I heard him play it was like I was transported to another world. The man literally played his soul through that Fender of his… Everytime I listened to him play and sing, I could feel that pain and love that he conveyed in his music and he is the only person wh has ever made me feel that way. His loss is still painful for me sometimes because I don’t really think anyone will ever be as good and truly gifted as him again in my lifetime.

Wow, that’s a lot of writing. Hehe. 🙂

what’s the best thing about the city you live in right now?
and what’s the worst?

Hmmm, the absolute best thing would definitely have to be the safety issue. I don’t think there is very much (if any) crime where I live and growing up very close to Newark, Jersey City and Paterson, this is a very welcomed change. I must have left my car windows open at least like 5 times this past summer with my cell in my holder and never had it stray from there.

Other cool things are the farms close to us so during the summer and autumn, we have the freshest corn, tomatoes, straberries, cherries, pumpkins, apples, etc at our disposal. I can’t even eat most supermarket fruits and veggies because of this because they taste so bad.

As for the worst thing, it would have to be the prices of houses. In order for me to get a “normal” 2-3 bedroom house near where I live, it’s roughly 500-600k. Townhomes and condos run roughly 300k. So it’s pretty safe to say that I will never own a house in the town I live in unless I get a job at a major corporation as a Director or win the lottery. 😉 But hey, they can both happen. 😀

wow, where you live sounds really great!

all excpet the prices of houses! that just blew my socks off! i can’t believe it! wow.

thanks for answering!


What do want the most in life? Love, happiness, money, etc… and why?

Wow, tough question.

Well, I’m not worried about love because I know I have a great deal of love in my life from all of those around me and I have plenty to give. Happiness is not a concern of mine either because with all of the love and friends I have in my life, I’ll be happy. Money is a concern of mine, but if you really think about it, everyone’s concerned about money. Even Bill Gates probably wants more and to continually base your existence based purely on something so material is a tragic shame no matter who you are. Sadly, money’s a necessity, but it’s not required to have a fruitful life.

I guess what I want most out of life is knowing that I helped in contributing something towards the betterment of our species. I mean how many hundreds of thousands of people die on this planet every given day yet have really offered nothing in terms of making us succeed or making life easier for everyone else? I’d just rather not leave this world without offering a way to significantly improve everyone else’s lives in a meaningful way whether it be something I or one of my progeny do.

I love your answer! And I also wanted to better society and that is why I am a social worker:)

What would you do if you had the chance to be a woman for a day?

WOW. Hmmm, that’s a very very tough question since I have a lot of movies that I love. I’ll take the top 5 movies and do a quote from eahc one.

1. Pulp Fiction:
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish, and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger, those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers, and you will know my name is The Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon thee.” BAM BAM BAM BAM

2. Princess Bride:
“My name is Inego Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.”

3. Swingers:
Mike: Look, we’re gonna spend half the night driving around the Hills looking for this one party and you’re going to say it sucks and we’re all gonna leave and then we’re gonna go look for this other party. But all the parties and all the bars, they all suck. I spend half the night talking to some girl who’s looking around the room to see if there’s somebody else who’s more important she should be talking to. And it’s like I’m supposed to be all happy ’cause she’s wearing a backpack, you know? And half of them are just nasty skanks who wouldn’t be nothing except they’re surrounded by a bunch of drunken horny assholes. And I’m gonna tell you something T. Are you listening?
Trent: Yeah, I’m listening.
Mike: I’m not gonna be one of those assholes. Alright? It just makes me sick. It’s like, some nasty skank who isn’t half the woman my girlfriend is, is gonna front me? It makes me want to fuckin’ puke!

4. Resevoir Dogs:
Mr. Brown: O.K., let me tell you what Like a Virgin’s about. It’s all about this cooze who’s a regular fuck machine, I’m talking morning, day, night, afternoon, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick.
Mr. Blue: How many dicks is that?
Mr. White: A lot.
Mr. Brown: Then one day she meets this John Holmes motherfucker and it’s like, whoa baby, I mean this cat is like Charles Bronson in the Great Escape, he’s digging tunnels. Now, she’s gettin’ the serious dick action and she’s feeling something she ain’t felt since forever. Pain. Pain. It hurts her. It shouldn’t hurt her, you know her pussy should be Bubble Yum by now, but when this cat fucks her it hurts. It hurts just like it did the first time. You see the pain is reminding a fuck machine what it once was like to be a virgin. Hence, “Like a virgin.”

5. Braveheart:
“You see? Death comes to us all. But before it comes to you, know this: your blood dies with you. A child who is not of your line grows in my belly. Your son will not sit long on the throne. I swear it.”

Oh that’s easy as hell. I would be the nastiest freakiest woman you would have ever heard of. I’d find a couple of strapping young lads and just do everything under the sun I could for the entire day. With my luck though, I’d be one of those women that aren’t able to experience orgasms… Hmmph. :-/

1) If you could be a famous person for one day who would you be and what would you do? Note: What would you do, not who. LOL, did I just ruin your fun?

2) If you could pick any planet to have a vacation home on, which would you pick and why? Let’s assume of course that you wouldn’t die on any of them due to poor air, etc.

3) Do you think blondes really do have more fun? I just had to through a weird one in there because the others are completely sane of course! /end sarcasm

Hmmm, interesting questions. =)

1. Haha! Well, yeah, but it’s all good. 😉 I’d love to be Albert Einstein actually. I’d just sit there pondering the nature of existance to hopefully get a better grasp of why things are.

2. I would have to say I’d love to live on Saturn if it were at all possible. I’m so in awe of the lovely rings around the planet. Plus I read somewhere that the reason it shines so brightly is because of the helium (or was it hydrogen) showers within the planet’s atmosphere. That must be one amazing things to watch from my nice little log cabin on Saturan. =)

3. Hmmm, I’ve always found that brunettes and redheads had a lot more fun than blondes in my exprience. I had the most fun with this hot little redhead I once knew. Ahhh, still daydream about it at times, but I won’t get into that little tidbit.


Heh heh heh. 😉
