You are allowed to place three items from your lifetime into a box that will be opened in fifty years. What do you put in, and why?
 I answer this one because it could be a fairly good way to judge someone. I think there are three main components: something to sell later for money, something to preserve for the sake of humanity, and something to remind you of your past. Firstly, my Epiphone Les Paul. I'd miss it, but when I'd dig it out, it would be well worth it to see how much it fetches. Secondly, a recorded DVD/video tape of various news programs of the day of burial. It will show what kind of problems we had to deal with and what kind of problems may still lurk in the future. Finally, my pastel crayon drawing of a dog wearing a sombrero...wait for it. I remember drawing it in fifth grade and being so proud that I finally understood perspective. I gave it to my dad on Father's Day...since then, it has been either posted on the side of his dresser, gone with him to work, or, as it is right now, framed and mounted just around his bed side table. Needless to say, it has some value.

If you were the sort of cartoon or video game character that always wears a costume, what would you wear? Why?
 Ah, the infamous alter-ego. What would I wear? Damn, so many possibilities. Of course, I wouldn't mind being the superhero wearing band t-shirts and worn jeans...and maybe a fake pipe. However, if I really wanted something stereotypically super, I would have to go with the classic black jack boots, rugged work pants, dress shirt with blood spattered on it, black pinstripe fedora, and an eyepatch. And either a katana, a flying v guitar, or a BFG (BIG FUCKING GUN) strapped to the back. As for super hero name...let's go with Vertigo.

If you could create a hybrid of any two fruits in the world, what would they be and why? Describe this new fruit (its name, taste, color, ect.)
Pomegrape. It would essentially have the flavor, color, and natural casing of a nice, juicy red pomegranate. However, the seeds you would find in a pomegrape would be grape-sized and without the seed pits that normal pomegranates have.

If you could invent one thing and make it a reality, what would it be? Why?
A cloning device...HOWEVER, it would have limitations to organic materials no more complicated than a fruit fly. Since natural foods tend to be farily simple, it would end hunger without the worries of making crazy Hitler clones.

Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” He is believed to have called it his greatest literary work ever. Can you write a story in six words?
 Damn, my boss WAS really annoying.

Do you think Heath Ledger deserves the Oscar for his role in the Dark Knight?
     

Well, I can't really think of a reason he shouldn't get a nomination. Except how Nolan left his story hanging at the end.

What do you want written on your gravestone and why?



 Matt Blalock

Because he thought
it was a good idea.

If you had to immigrate from your current home, where in the world would you choose to go?
 Somewhere in the bigger parts of Europe. Probably Ireland. One of those big parts where there are equal parts touristy attractions, not-so-touristy historical aspects, and downright blue-collar industrial flair. Yeah, and I'd be a teacher there. I'd live in one of the flats that looks exactly the same as the 27 blocks around it except it has a light purple door compared to the one next to it that has violet, and the one next to that one that is dark purple, and the one next to that one which is fuschia.
