When you go out to eat at a sit down restaurant or diner, what's your meal of choice?

If you were at a convenience store that you regularly shop at and you witnessed somebody dressed like they can afford it steal an item - which of these things would you be most likely to do?

A) Alert the clerk
B) Confront them
C) Steal an item yourself
D) Just go about your business, say nothing, see nothing

Depends on the restaurant, I suppose.

E) Identify if they are Jimmy. Wait for them to accuse me of sassing them to confirm that it is Jimmy. When I present him with this information, wait for him to ask me if I have a problem with him to further confirm his identity. I would then turn him over to the proper authorities (Greg).

Whens the next torturous Mario Maker creation? Has anyone else cleared the last one?

Upon checking, 26 people have played that level and one more, since you, have cleared it, with a time of two minutes and two seconds.

I'm going to do some level building once the book is handed off to the publisher. Level building is considerably time consuming, as you know, and it's something I can easily get wrapped up in and not notice the time going by, so I try to avoid doing more than checking my stats every few days right now while I'm in crunch time for the book.

If you were to actively seek and listen to a song on YouTube, after searching for the title would you settle on the first hit you got, like the first result, or would you seek out a HQ version of that song so as not to stumble upon a low quality version that might damage your listening experience?

On a scale of one to Rose Leslie where would you put Amy Adams?

She's no Rose, but she would make my list of favourite redheads.

That's cool. For me Amy is a goddess.

Maybe they'll have to fight it out in a poll ;)

Just kidding, I've retired from that. Or have I?

Bit of a writing challenge for you.

In two sentences or less each, explain why someone should...

Watch your favorite TV Show
Read your favorite book
Play your favorite game
Listen to your favorite album.

Alright, I'm ready for this challenge:

Game of Thrones is a TV show that should be watched, if for no other reason, to see a fantastical, medieval world as a case study of the human experience and as an allegorical reflection of life in general.

A Song of Ice and Fire, and particularly A Storm of Swords, should be read beforehand, as the literary series is a far more nuanced experience than its small screen adaptation.

If one then desires a more interactive experience that takes you on a wild journey of adventure, love, acceptance, grief, tragedy and survival, then one should endeavor to find a copy of Final Fantasy VI.

Lastly, for a blues infused, musical experience to shake you to your very core and bring forth a driving force of rock and roll energy, I recommend siting down with Led Zeppelin IV.

Do you consider any character in your book to be very similar to any particular forum member?

That's an interesting question. There are two characters who were very loosely inspired by two users of this forum. I won't say who, rather I'll leave that until the book is out and see if anyone here can figure it out.

When the book comes out, will there be an option to receive a copy personally signed by the author?

Not directly from the publisher, or in online stores, but it's something I plan on doing with the copies I sell personally.

Which backup goalie would win in a fight, Zatkoff or Greiss?

I'd put my money on Greissy, for sure.

Are you familiar with the writings of Joseph Campbell, if so how much do you think he's contributed to our understanding of mythology and the fantasy genre?
