Five Questions Meme
1. The infamous dinner party question, with a bit of a different twist: Your five guests will be comic book characters. A truce is declared for the evening so you can invite both heros and villans if you like.
Part of me wants to make an 'eye candy' list of Supergirl, Batgirl, Mary Marvel, etc., but that's not really the point here, is it? [grin]...
Okay, operating under the 'no agression rule enforced by magical means' rule:
Let's start with Darkseid and Thanos -- a villain whose goal is finding the Anti-Life Equation and another who's in love with Death itself; gotta be some good conversation there, doncha think? -- oh, and let's toss in Thanos' brother (and one-time superhero) Starfox fer good measure...
Last two: Magneto and Kitty Pryde -- a little debate on human/mutant relations wouldn't be such a bad thing, would it? (and the reason I didn't pick Professor X fer the good-guy side of this topic? -- cmon, I getta have *some* eye candy here, don't I? [grin]...)
...hmm, seems I skewed a little bit toward the villainous, didn't I? (Well, *I'd* be on hand to even it out [grin]...)
2. Name three or four famous musicians (living or dead) whom you'd like to have a jam session with.
My first thought on this one wuz that most famous musicians would be risky choices because their egos and mine probably couldn't fit into any building smaller than a stadium together [grin] -- but let's try setting that little issue aside and see where we go, shall we?...
Names that sprang into mind after a moment's thought (given another moment, I might've gone into a whole 'nother genre...):
Tony Williams on drums, Dave Holland on bass, Bill Frisell on guitar, and Archie Shepp on sax
3. Describe your ideal vacation (reality or fantasy).
I think we'd start with a couple of weeks back in Naantali, Finland, and eventually wind up with some trilaterally symmetrical Trups from the planet Yom in the Pi Ursa Major system sometime in the late 24th century (the rest I leave to your imagination...)
4. What's the weirdest thing you've ever found on the Internet?
It's a wonderment I haven't spent a fortune in therapy bills just due to some of the more extreme pr0n I've seen in my time (esp. in the days before pop-up blockers -- thanx fer drudging up those repressed memories [grin]) -- however, something a little more pleasant that comes to mind is a site with transgendered superhero fanfiction [NOTE: mature subject matter in those stories -- you been warned, dernded it!...]
5. In a recent post you mentioned something about "giving sermons on the subject of whether or not Jesus had a sex life." Tell me more about that. (Sorry, the Devil made me ask that.)
While I wuz touring with an ecumenical youth ministry (which will remain nameless to protect the innocent -- and the people involved too [grin]), I happened upon a somewhat-radical Christian text (wish I still knew the title) which had an interesting subchapter called something like "Did Jesus Have A Penis -- And If So, Why?" which discussed the idea of Jesus having sex (whether with a partner or 'flying solo', as it were) -- that subchapter wuz only aboot a paragraph in length, but I started elaboratng on it and improvising riffs around it just fer me own giggles (and those of me mates in that crew, which included both a devout Nietzschean [if one can in fact be such a thing] and a guy who wanted to become an Episcopalean priest purely fer the opportunity to spike the communion with LSD -- yes, I hung out with the *hip* crowd, didn't I?), and eventually I had a whole speech up to aboot sermon-length (albeit rather rambly at that size) -- somewhere along the line, we walked into a straightlaced fundamentalist church that *obviously* didn't dig our 'secular humanistic' leanings, and I decided to open up on them with that routine (which I did happily 3 or 4 more times under similar circumstances until 'the band broke up', so to speak...)
...now this is where I's supposed ta give yawl permission to request some questions from me to ask of you (although I make absolutely *no* promises for originality, relevance or appropriateness [PC or otherwise]...)
