What is your favorite song?
That changes from one day to the next, but currently I'm addicted to a little known song called "D.W. Suite" by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. This tribute to Dennis Wilson is from Buckingham's 1984 solo album Go Insane. It's just an incredibly strange, interesting and beautiful song and is just so... him.
What is your favorite music genre?
Classic Rock. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is and always will be my favorite band ever. I’ve been listening to Petty since I was 8 years old and have seen him in concert 3 times. Other artists I really enjoy are Fleetwood Mac (I’ve seen them in concert 3 times and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham in concert 3 times), Bob Seger (I’ve seen him once in concert), Eric Clapton (just saw him with Steve Winwood in concert in June), Warren Zevon (never got to see him before he passed) and Creedence Clearwater Revival/John Fogerty (haven’t seen Fogerty yet but he’s on the list).
Do you prefer board games, or computer games?
I guess computer games, but I really don't have the patience or attention span for either. Mostly I play word games at Shockwave.com.
What is your favorite sport?
I don't really have any interest in sports, though I do love to bowl - if that counts. I have my own ball and shoes, though I'm really terrible at it. As for watching on television, the only "sport" I'll tune in to is equestrian show jumping, but mostly I just sit there and chant "refuse, refuse!" – especially if there’s a water jump involved. Is that wrong of me?
What is your favorite hobby, besides watching movies?
Fiction writing. Since 2000 I've been slowly piecing together and polishing a novel about a young man who suddenly finds himself on his own - finally free to explore his sexuality and yet forced by circumstances to use it as a means to survive.
I actually got a publishing offer for it a couple of years ago, but I declined it because I wasn’t comfortable with the terms of the contract.
What is your favorite theater snack?
Don’t know if they count as a snack, but the hot dogs are delicious! Also, the Cinnabon pretzels are quite yummy.
Theater, or home theater?
Theater. My tv is rather small and my house if full of distractions. Though unfortunately I most often view movies in bits and pieces on my 7” portable DVD player. I work 11-12 hours a day Monday – Thursday and I watch movies on my lunch breaks.
If you had to throw away all your movies but one, which one would you keep?
That sounds like the worst day of my life. I think I have to stick with Quills. Its combination of humor, sex and heartbreak would sustain me longer than any other, before I sink into the inevitable depression that an otherwise movie-less existence would bring.
Do you avoid watching certain movies, simply because of an actor that is in them?
Yes. Yes I do. Unless there is a very compelling reason for me to watch, I avoid movies starring Orlando Bloom, Mark Wahlberg, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and Jack Black, off the top of my head.
Name 5 actors you would love to meet, and why. What would you want to do to, or with them?
Joaquin Phoenix. If I’d been asked this question a couple of years ago, my answer as to why would be very family-unfriendly and... um… explicit. Now, I’d just want to try to talk some sense into him.
Bruce Campbell. The man’s just awesome and funny. I’d just like to spend a day with him.
Johnny Depp. What wouldn’t I want to do with him?
Victor Mature. If I could travel back in time to when he was alive, I’d just like to sit down and talk with him. From what I’ve read about him, he seems to have been a pretty cool guy with no illusions about what he was in Hollywood. I’d also love to hear any stories he had to tell about the movies he starred in and just that era of Hollywood in general.
Russell Crowe. I’d like to spend a day on the set with him, so that I could watch him at his craft and in person.
Name the movie you hate the most.
I don’t know that there is a most hated movie but one that comes to mind is The Ninth Gate. It was so incredibly boring and I had the whole thing figured out very quickly – which is rare for me since I tend to be a little slow on the uptake sometimes. Oh and there was something about the way Johnny Depp looked in that movie that reminded me of my father. Huge turnoff. HUGE.
Name the oldest movie you've seen.
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Name the newest movie you've seen.
Julie & Julia
What is your favorite movie genre?
Who is your favorite action star?
I’m not a big fan of action, but I’d probably have to go with Bruce Willis, if only for nostalgic reasons. I grew up with the Die Hard series and we used to watch them every Christmas. How’s that for a family tradition?
What is your favorite decade of movies?
Probably the 1990’s. It seems to contain a higher number of favorite films than any other decade.
What is your favorite movie for each genre . . .
Bubba Ho-Tep (it’s more of a comedy, I know, but I’m not an horror fan, so…)
The Big Lebowski
The Boondock Saints
3:10 to Yuma
Brotherhood of the Wolf
Casualties Of War
