I'm all 'It'. (And a Bag of Chips)


Well,

Time to get to my tag. Both sink chicken and Rhodian Attic tagged me, so I guess I'd better 'hop to'! Those I have tagged, it is simple, answer the following as I have and pass it on ad nauseum.

My added feature is a brief explanation.

FOUR JOBS I'VE HAD-
McDonald's employee (fired... 'does not work well with others')
Used car salesperson (I bet your are not surprised)
Storyboard Artist (Got carpal tunnel from this job... 'love' life suffered)
Creative director (current)

FOUR MOVIES I CAN WATCH OVER AND OVER-
RoboCop (Witty and horribly violent. I like my women that way, too)
Blade Runner (Who doesn't like it? You? Then you are an idiot.)
The Transporter (What?! Stop laughing, Dammit. My sole guilty pleasure that isn't porn.)
Yojimbo (Kurosawa, the father of modern cinema.)

FOUR PLACES I'VE LIVED-
Squalor
With roomies, broke (Less than squalor, learned to enjoy the warm glow of starvation.)
With wife (Sigh.)
Alone (Current. I clip toes in bed without reprimand.)

FOUR TV SHOWS I LOVE-
Nightly News (Comedy, drama and fiction all in one!)
Northern Exposure (I lament good television when I see this gem.)
Futurama (Ditto.)
Test Pattern (More cerebrally stimulating than 'survivor'.)

FOUR PLACES I'VE VACATIONED-
Japan (From Osaka, to Kyoto, to Nara and places in-between)
Italy (Rome, and the northern parts, and the Alps)
Germany (Berlin, mostly. where men are men, and women are men.)
California (Where men are metrosexual, and women are men, and some men are women, and everyone is certified bonkers, wearing pajamas to parties.)

FOUR OF MY FAVORITE DISHES-
Tofu Hot Pot
Canard confit
Saag Lamb
Coriander Chicken

FOUR SITES I VISIT DAILY
Robocop archive (heeeee!)
Mine (...And why the hell not?!)
Musclecarclub (Yeah, they are noisy, dirty and brash. But I love em.)
Hollywoodgifts (Toys! autographs! blaaaaergghhahah...ooooh-haaaaa-!)

FOUR PLACES I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT NOW-
Someplace Sane.
Shanghai (Gotta go to China one day, ya know!)
Darjeeling (Tea!)
Under the sea or by it.

Listen to Dave Attell's older standup and his segment on working at McDonalds...well, nevermind, I'll just say it right here and probably with a bunch of errors. Here's my best shot though.

"Have you guys ever gotten drunk and blacked out, or as I like to call it, time travel? You're drinking at a bar, you blackout, you wake up, you're drinking at another bar, you blackout. You wake up at McDonald's, been working there 5 years and haven't made assistant manager. You want to quit but can't because you're banging the girl on a the frialader (spelling). They say she's retarded, but those titties ain't retarded!" I'm glad you got out, or you might be in that same situation...lord knows I have been...

3:31 PM  
Blogger Angela said...

Don't even THINK of throwing that back my way...

I did my part and I didn't force anyone else to.

Next thing you know, it's going to be those annoying "Jesus loves you" e-mails.

3:41 PM  
Blogger Sinkchicken said...

I love those Jesus loves you emails, because it's so nice to be reminded.

And then to ignore them.

Blogger TheHamburger said...

Wait...we were supposed to make up new ones?

5:46 PM  
Blogger TheHamburger said...

Fine, I just made up a whole new list. And by the way, I tagged you on it. God this thing is evil...

Knew about RoboCop and Blade Runner... didn't know you are a creative director (but it fits)... Northern Exposure is cool (we kinda met the radio guy from it when we lived in LA)... knew Futerama... have always wanted to go to Berlin... plenty of us are crazy in California... and what is tofu hot pot(sounds good)?

See, that wasn't quite root canal, was it?

Blogger Blog Monkey said...

wait... you guys in california are crazy? more questions? what the-!?

Blade Runner... Only if it's the original cut.

Blogger Plunky said...

First, your dishes are so freaking fancy. Are you fancy? Second, ok, Robocop, you love it, we get it, really. Third, I am now going to scour the internet for pics of Ron Morrow because I too miss Northern Exposure. Fourth, people do wear pajamas to parties here and it is indeed the craziest place you will ever be.

a: i am fancy to a certain degree.

b: did you know i like robocop? i like robocop.

c: blade runner original cut has the voicover and tacked on ending... you like that? apparently there is a 'renegade director's cut' with the hospital scene reinserted. that i have to see.
