In August, the awesome Red Metal over at Extra Life Reviews nominated me for The Real Neat Blogger Award. That was Real Neat of him! 😉 I’m always flattered and I always really appreciate when I get a little award- plus, answering random questions is pretty fun! So, let’s get started! Here’s the questions that were asked of me.
1. Have you ever watched a film in theaters that featured an intermission?
Nope, not that I can remember! I don’t know if my attention span could even handle something like that these days, haha!
2. What is the most expensive ticket you’ve ever purchased?
Hmmm… probably the tickets for my husband and I to go to the Slipknot concert in 2009. They were floor tickets and I don’t remember how much they were, but I know it was a little pricey. Totally worth it though… seeing Slipknot up close and personal was EPIC and I’m glad we did it. Probably won’t happen again though- I’m getting too old to participate in mosh pits!
3. If you had to trade in fluency of your first language for another, which one would you choose?
Definitely Japanese. I’ve always wanted to learn Japanese, but it’s very difficult!
4. If you could appear on any game show (including ones that have ended), which one would you choose?
This is a great question! I’m convinced that I’m one of those people that know all the answers at home but would freeze and forget everything, including my name, if I had to appear on television. You know which one would be fun though? That one that used to be on Nickelodeon where families had to go through obstacle courses… *looks up the name* Double Dare! Some of that shit was so gross and messy, but it looked like a ton of fun!
5. As someone who has watched many classics over the past few years, I’ve concluded that old films are overall better than recent efforts. What do you think the current generation of filmmakers lacks that allowed their predecessors to shine?
There is a definite lack of new ideas! People keep re-hashing the same shit in a different format. Some is good, some isn’t… but I’m ready to see more unique ideas!
6. How do you like your eggs prepared?
EEWWWW!!! I HATE EGGS!!! I don’t know why, but I’ve hated them ever since I was a kid. Every once and awhile I will make scrambled eggs for my husband for breakfast, and I have to struggle not to puke just looking at them. Don’t even get me started on how slimy and snotty it looks when you first crack it open! Recipes that call for eggs make me want to cry… good thing I don’t bake cakes very often.
7. How do you like your potatoes prepared?
Now this question is more like it! 😉 I love potatoes…. baked potatoes, potatoes au gratin, mashed potatoes, french fries, potato chips… yeah, potatoes are awesome in pretty much any form. Yum!
8. If you found yourself directing films, which genre would you want to specialize in?
Since horror is my favorite genre, that’s what I would chose! And I would not kill off any animals dammit!
9. What is your favorite band/artist with a limited discography (i.e. no more than four studio albums)?
Oh wow, that’s a great question! I used to be so much better at keeping up with bands I like, but now I’m in the “this is the music that I like, I don’t want to hear new stuff” category. Yikes, I’m old! Anyway, many of the bands that I like seem to have released more than 4 albums, so this is a hard question to answer. Poking through my music collection, I only have one cd from a band called 16 Second Stare, and by the looks of it, they have only released one other cd and a few extra songs, so let’s go with them!
I actually remember picking up their cd for 25 CENTS at Best Buy many years back. I took a chance on it because it was cheap and the album cover is a toilet with roses coming out of it- classy! Turns out, there’s some pretty decent hard rock/ metal tracks on the album, which is fine by me!
10. There are many stories over the years of projects or ideas never getting off the ground or being canceled mid-production. Which one would you bring into reality if you could?
I’m hopeless when it comes to news about what’s up and coming, so I’m probably oblivious to most things that get cancelled.
11. What series do you feel managed to be consistently good for an extended period of time?
As far as video game series go… the Donkey Kong Country series. I loved the original trilogy and loved the revamped Returns series too- I feel like each game has something different and exciting to offer.
As far as book series, I’ll have to say Harry Potter. Every one of those 7 books keep me enthralled and entertained!
TV series… definitely Breaking Bad! I watched all 5 seasons without once saying “Wow, that was boring” or “That episode was pointless.” I can’t say the same for most other series I’ve watched, even if it’s a series I really like.
So that’s that for this award! Thanks for reading!

Potatoes in chip form are the best, imo 🙂 Congrats on the award!
Haha definitely! And thank you! It was fun answering the questions 🙂
Congrats on the nomination!
I am also a fan of potatoes. Too bad you don’t like eggs, though. Those are delicious!
I have always wanted to go to a Slipknot concert, but I have missed the chances I have had so far. Hopefully I will get to go one day.
Thanks! Haha, I know I’m definitely in the minority when it comes to not liking eggs, but I can’t help it!
The Slipknot concert was SO amazing! They really put on a show and are amazing performers! I hope you get the chance to go someday 😉
I *think* Titanic had an intermission, and I saw that when it came to my college’s theater. I’m not 100% certain if it did, but it seems like it would be a movie that would since it was so long. I remember buying the VHS (yep, I’m THAT old) and it came on two tapes lol.
Omg I go through phases where I can’t eat eggs if I think about what they are. Then I get grossed out lol. As long as I don’t think about them I can eat them, but it IS kind of gross. Granted, I grew up eating scrapple, which if you’re from my neck of the woods, you know exactly what it is, and you don’t question what’s in it. Spoiler alert: it’s worse than what’s in hot dogs lol. Food that looks like snot is not my cup of tea, but at least eggs are cooked so they’re a little better. There are people who eat oysters *blech*
Hmm, you’re right, Titanic might have had an intermission. I remember I was supposed to see it with my aunt, but I got sick that day and never went to the theater! I did see it later when we rented it from Blockbuster and I do remember being really amused that it was on two VHS tapes!! 🙂
Haha! I had to look up what scrapple was! I mean, hot dog are gross when you think about it, which is why like you, I don’t think about what it’s actually made of or else I’d be sick lmao!! Oh man, I don’t know how people can just slurp up oysters uggh!! Then again, I don’t eat any seafood at all, because it all grosses me out! I guess I’m kind of a picky eater lol!!!
It was a loooon time ago though: 1997 oof :p I remember being obsessed with that movie and subsequently all things Titanic for a really long time. In all honestly that’s not too terrible as it meant I tried to watch and read everything about the actual tragedy, so I was learning history, and the movie does have an excellent soundtrack/score.
Yeaaaaah, scrapple is definitely not the higher end of foods hehe. I like fish and scallops, but they’re the only shellfish I can stomach because they just taste like fish and not slime blech.
