Inside the Blogger's Studio: FVo edition

In all honesty I've been suffering from a lack of inspiration as of late, so I thought I'd participate in this super-duper happy-fun game as presented on Viva Las VegASS. I have been asked 5 questions, and if you in turn would like to be asked 5 questions by me, for your own blog [no pressure] comment-as-such!
Here are my answers, bitches:

1. If you could do one thing for a living, what would you do? Explain.
Well, as much as I would like to be professionally the child of a rock-icon who made billions of dollars like Kimberly Stewart or an Osborne, I suppose I could be forced to settle for author-exordinar. I would love to be so internationally recognized that I no longer need a day job and can spend my time writing amazing works of prose that keep people in stitches for years to come. Of course, this might require I actually write something, but still.

2. Give your feedback as to why the hell "Will and Grace" is still on the air.
Oh, what, because I’m a ghey, I automatically have the inside scoop on that crap show?! What am I part of some Faggot Mafia?!
Jokes. I think its still on the air because the little old ladies who watch it have no idea that there are even queer people on it. They just think Will and Grace can’t get their shit together to make it work and that Jack is delightfully childlike or something. Seriously I fucking hate that show with a passion of a thousand suns going supernova.
I was so excited when it came out because I was finally going to get to see some homosexuals on television [I don’t remember if “Queer as Folk” had debuted yet, but I never related to that show, not being incredibly hot and fucking constantly]. Then I watched it and realize all “Will and Grace” is, is a big old tease! You keep waiting for something ghey to happen but mostly its just “aren’t gheys stupid?” kind of jokes. And frankly I make better ones, I don’t need to slum it by watching tacky celebrity-product-placements.
Karen’s funny, if they spun her off and got rid of the “gheys” currently on that show I’d be all over it.

3. Based on your experience, is it really necessary to wait an hour after eating to go swimming?
You know, I’ve never had a problem, when I was a kid they called me a fish because I was always in the water. Even after eating. I bet you thought I’d have something funny to say but I didn’t.

4. Is there one food that even the site of makes you sick? Which food?
Ugh, yes. Whip-Cream.
Some idiot in rez insisted we do “whip-cream” shot or something and I’ve never been able to look at that shit the same again. When people ask if I want whip-cream on my grande-super-duper-latte-mocha-frappa-shittah I look at them like they’re dense. Nothing could make me eat whip-cream. Except Seth Cohen.

5. If you could go back in time and "get in the head" of a writer during the creative process, which writer would it be and what work would he/she be creating?
I would totally want the inside scoop on Oscar Wilde’s writing experience of the picture of Dorian Gray. I know it’s so ghey of me, but never has a book so perfectly captured what I felt. It was just beautifully written and incredibly interesting. I wish I could say more about it, but mostly I’m just in awe, I hope one day I write something half as meaningful to someone as that book was to me.

So do I have to answer those same 5 questions? Or do you give me 5 new ones? Cuz, go ahead ... give it your best shot (but be nice).

I give everyone who wants them, five brand-spankin' new questions, here you go 6tysex:

1. Do you have regrets? Or do you try to take the best from every experience? If you have regrets, what is your biggest?
2. How many times a day do you brush your teeth?
3. If you could read ONE person's mind, who would it be and why?
4. Name one thing about yourself/personality/physicality or whatever aspect of yourself that you are really proud of/take pride in.
5. What is your dream lifestyle?

"You keep waiting for something ghey to happen" - i had never thought of it before, but that's exactly it. has Will hooked up, EVER? i don't think i've ever even seen a little gay smooch on that show, let alone a real kiss.

7:06 PM  
Blogger Bonanza JellyBean said...

Yeah, there are too many gay cliches on Will and Grace...having said that, I think I would kill to have a robot Jack. It would be fun like any other Christmas present for about a week, then it will find it's way in the closet. Ironic.

Alright ... we'll see what we get. Thanks.

Blogger sixshooter said...

Ok, done. I'm not very impressed with my answers, but I did what I could.

Can I just say the fact you call me 6tysex makes me chuckle? And by "chuckle" I mean "want to stalk you." :)

Dearest Brooke,
If I ever get my grubby little hands on him, I will be sure to share!
Dearest YNH,
spank you for the questions.
Dearest Suz,
I stopped watching it after I graduated high school, so I don't know what's happening recently, but I do read interviews with the cast sometimes. In every interview they talk about how "this will be the season Will gets a boyfriend" and it would seem it never transpires. Now as much as I relate to being a single-ghey, I would think a man in his positition would see a lot more action than he does.
Dearest Siana,
haha! yez, I'd like a robotic Jack as well, just so that he'd have an off-switch.
Dearest 6tysex,
Me and my roommates determined that out of all of us I was the least likely to be stalked because I would like the attention and the stalker would lose interest. Just a warning, apparently I have the ability to even turn-off stalkers. It is my gift, it is my curse.

Interview me, please, Flesh!

1:08 PM  
Blogger Rob Danger said...

Okay! Here they are!
I hope you find them interesting, I tried to ask questions that I would want to answer, or that I would have something interesting to say about! I look forward to reading your answers:

1. Name one moment that you would like to relive exactly as it happened and why.

2. If you had to name one CD/Artist/Song/Genre that you feel captures the general spirt of you, what would it be and why?

3. How do you take your coffee? And if you don't drink coffee... how do you get the all-necessary caffeine-buzz?

4. If you went back to high school knowing what you know now, how would that affect things, or would it?

5. Do you believe in reincarnation? Why or why not?

Flesh ... the questions were fine -- no worries.

And as far as stalking goes, I'm fickle (maybe it's the advanced adult ADHD, I'm not sur ... look, a shiny object ... what, where was I?) so by the time you scared me off, I'd probably have already moved on anyways. How about a free 30-day, money-back guaranteed trial stalking and see how that works out for us both?

Blogger AMS said...

I loved Dorian Grey too - havent read it in years though!

2:47 PM  
Blogger sixshooter said...

And in true stalker fashion, I have since located Dorian Gray (or is that Grhey?) online to start reading it ... yes, for the first time. Am I Illiterati?

And immediately I see that it is brilliant and may soon become my favorite book. In Chapter 2, he writes something that could have been written today:
"Courage has gone out of our race. Perhaps we never really had it. The terror of society, which is the basis of morals, the terror of God, which is the secret of religion--these are the two things that govern us."

Blogger Rob Danger said...

I'm so glad other people are liking [like] Dorian Gray as much as I do!! Who was your fav character AMS??
Lemme know what you think of it when you're done 6tysex, I'd love to hear another homo's opinion.

As a white, middle-class hetero girl, I always wonder about shows like Will & Grace or all those shows on UPN with African Americans in them.

They all seemed like offensive stereotypes to me, but I didn't know if it was my place to complain.

Thank you for validating my distaste for those shows.

It is always my goal to give people the right to bitch and moan about all things ghey. I do anyway.

Blogger sixshooter said...

I'm only a couple chapters in so far (didn't get to read at home this weekend ... that's what work is for) ... but WOW I keep waiting for Lord Harry to pull out the lube and for the porn music to start.

I know Oscar Wilde was ghey, but I had no idea the homosexual overtones were so high in this.

Speaking of, have you seen pics from the musical "Dorian?" Do a Google search on Dorian and Max von Essen (or check out his site) and you'll find a nice little surprise. (If you like that sort of thing ... and by "that sort of thing" I mean hunky, almost naked guys.)

Blogger Rob Danger said...

hunky guys just don't do it for me anymore. I totally know what you mean, I was completely SHOCKED by how fucking GHEY the entire book was given when it was written. That aside, its beautifully written and deeply thoughtful. I'd love to hear what you think about the end.

6:34 PM  
Blogger sixshooter said...

Well I thought the opening chapters reeked of ghey, then it got dark and less ghey ... I was surprised that only 20 years pass ... from movies and knowing OF the story I thought he lived for a LONG time (which is why the picture in the movies always looked so Crypt-keeper-esque). The end is sort of abrupt and leaves you hanging, which is good ... but I would love to actually discuss it with someone (other than via the web) ... some immediate response ... you know?

Big question? The whole Alan thing, the secret he wrote on the paper that they never explained ... was it that they had been lovers and Dorian was going to tell? Two reasons Alan killed himself -- not wanting to be exposed and also having helped dispose of the body? Just my thoughts.

Shoot me an email -- it's easier to discuss (now that I've taken up a page and a half of comment space).

I've just found your blog about coffee bean bakery whilst I was looking for more information to add to my blog about coffee bean bakery. You've got a great blog going here. It's always good to have more information about coffee bean bakery. I've just started my own blog about coffee bean bakery if you would like to take a look.
Keep up the good work.
