A Questionnaire, Part II: The Questioning

Octopus Prime

1. Telekinesis seems useful so that one.
2. Say “kickass” and give them high fives
3. Dolph Lundgren seems like a solid choice. Guys got it all!
4. Gonna say Bob Dylan because I don’t think too highly of him and wouldn’t mind if I did a poor job of it.
5. The Kickboys

1) If you could have one classic psychic power, what would it be?
Is levitation basically just one of the applications of telekinesis? Whichever of those allows me to fly.

2) If you knew someone you loved was a werewolf, what would you do?
Are we talking an Oz-on-Buffy-style aggressive wild animal kind of werewolf? If so, then we’d have to stage some kind of intervention to keep them from hurting themselves or others. If they just turn into an awesome half-human half-wolf every so often, though, then I’m with Octo: high fives all around.

3) If you could put your brain in someone's body permanently, whose would it be?
I guess a person who was brain dead, so that I wouldn’t be displacing someone who was actually using their body.

4) If you HAD to be in a cover band, what band would you cover exclusively?
Probably either R.E.M. or Talking Heads. That would be a good balance of “songs I actually like” and “songs that mostly aren’t too vocally demanding.”

5) Which is your favourite soccer team?
I don’t really follow soccer, but I’ve heard that a lot of people have really been inspired by the U.S. women’s national team, so probably them.

1) Not telepathy, not because I don't want it but because I would abuse it. No, I wouldn't be mining secrets, I'm insecure and desperate to be liked so I'd probably just model myself on all the bad shit I hear rather than listening to filtered thoughts and using my own judgement. Telekinesis is super useful so that.
2) Have a talk with them and make a plan to keep them restrained on wolf nights. Then we can monitor what it does to him and see if we can reach out to the wolfman side.
3) Someone who has power but doesn't use it. Maybe curse myself putting me into a Elon Musk or Bezos and give away everything before fixing my company from a union standpoint. But I also have such shit business sense, I'd probably fuck it up and get corrupt so... maybe not.
4) Devo!
5)

4) Which fictional family would you like to be part of?
5) What's your favourite dance move?

2) The kind like my wife.
3) 'S been awhile.
4) ...that's a tough one. Never really thought about it.
5) The Worm. (That's a dance move, right?)

1) Man, I wish I thought maybe not to ask this since I forgot that, yet, this can get heavy or serious. I'll get rid of it but it anyone want to answer it go ahead. Anyway, for me it would probably be something embarrassing but not essential for my development. The painful stuff is stuff I can deal with, if I need to get rid of baggage, it needs to be useless. As a kid, it would have been "trying to sell the plot of ALF to my sister as an original story".
2) On an emotional level, someone who gets so excited in a conversation they are passionate they get almost shaky, like me. On a kink level, someone who wants to hug me super hard. Maybe it's why I wanted attention like the kind Elmyra and Ms. Piggy gave as a kid.
3) I don't know if it was storm level but I was caught in a very heavy rain when I was out jogging a couple months ago.
4) The Addams'. They seem to really care. That or the Fantastic Four but really, if you were going to ask which family I'd feel safer with, it would be the former.
5) The batusi

5) Which is your favourite Blues Brothers number?

1) If you had an old timey fighting plane, what would you name it?
The Thunderin’ Thelma.

2) What's a really original idea for a heist movie?
Stealing the prizes from a game show before it’s recorded.

3) When's the last time you were on a bike?
Wow, ages ago. I might have been six or seven years old at the time.

4) What music would you strip to?
One of the little things I do to try to make the world a better place is that, as much as I can manage, I avoid exposing other people to the sight of my flesh.

5) Which is your favourite Blues Brothers number?
So, is this my favorite number from the movie The Blues Brothers, or my favorite number that Jake and Elwood themselves perform? If it’s the former, it’s Aretha Franklin’s performance of “Think,” closely followed by Cab Calloway’s performance of “Minnie the Moocher.” If it’s the latter, it’s “Sweet Home Chicago.”

1) Batman

2) I usually don't. I do like green tea ice cream, though, and coffee-flavored chocolate bars, but almost never drink the real stuff.

3) Not a whole lot to speak of, but I do have a neat illustration of the Star Fox cast from the Nintendo Power comic and some of the games by Adam Bryce Thomas. (And a neat perler bead MegaMan Volnutt in 8bit Mega Man style.)

4) "Shway"

5) Earth.

1. Marge Gunderson from Fargo. Too many asshole detectives, not enough humane ones. Marge is from the Columbo school of letting people underestimate her, though she's less overtly clever about it and basically just doing her job while other people choose to miss out on how clever she is.
2. Black and rarely but when I do as an ice capp, respectively.
3.

Tie. @Lokii
4. Richard Kind
5. Probably Earth or Air. Earth because I try to be solid, in many ways but air because I often have my head in the clouds.

(He/Him)
1. That guy that Bugs Bunny exploded
2. A Killers Time to Die
3. Duckbilled dinosaur; not because I’d be terrified; just because I never liked them much and it would be very disappointing to me
4. Nope
5. No, but I bet it didn’t have a lot of syllables

1. Who is your favourite opera singer?
Joke answer: John McCrea.
Sincere answer: Probably Jessye Norman.

2. What's a good title for a James Bond movie?
Never Say Die.

3. Which prehistoric creature would you least want to encounter?
My first impulse is to say one of the larger species of eurypterids: predatory aquatic relatives of scorpions and spiders that could get up to 2.5m (more than eight feet) in length.

4. Do you have any tattoos?
Nope! I’m way too indecisive to commit to having something on my skin for the rest of my life. Also, my general rule for my appearance is to try to attract as little attention as I can, and a tattoo wouldn’t work well with that rule.

5. Do you know what your first word was?
“Bird,” appropriately enough.

5. When's the last time you helped out a stranger?
1) Probably synthwave and neon.

2) Probably Transformers: The Movie. The original, not the Michael Bay one.

3) CN Tower

4) That's a tough one. I wonder if I might not have a problem with certain animals if I could speak to them.

5) Guess it depends on what counts as "helped out". I shared some peoples' work on Twitter within the last hour or so. Beyond that? Not so sure.

1. What is the theme of your dream nightclub?
David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti.

2. Which is your favourite action movie?
I can’t decide between Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

3. What's the tallest building you've ever been in?
The John Hancock Center in Chicago.

4. Which animals would you least like to be able to speak?
Cockroaches. Definitely cockroaches.

5. When's the last time you helped out a stranger?
There was a woman asking for help feeding her kids in the grocery store parking lot a couple of weeks ago. I gave her something.

1. Probably a silent disco and the theme is ultra-colourful German expressionism.
2. I feel like I'm forgetting some good ones but Hot Fuzz is a big comfort food movie for me.
3. CN Tower
4. Worms. Kids like digging up worms and they aren't always general and I don't want to hear cries of anguish when I am working.
5. A guy needed help putting his water bottle in his bag, so I did that.

1) Nothing in stone, yet. I do have plans, but less for that.
2) Yes
3) Dominos or Little Caesars. (Panago is good, too.)
4) The Master Sword, just to confuse people.
5) Sonic and Amy
 

Violentvixen

(She/Her)
1. Do you have any plans for Christmas? No, we'll be traveling earlier in the month and neither of us will have vacation time.
2. Do you own a smart phone? Yep, need it for work.
3. What's your favourite chain pizza place? Had too much pizza for a decade while volunteering at my old job and no longer care for it. I'll occasionally have a fancy one from a local place but can't stand the chain stuff. I'd just eat a protein bar or drink an Ensure.
4. If you had a sword designed for you, what would you name it? I'd need to brush up on the grammar but something along the lines of "this will just hang on the wall" in Latin.
5. Which celebrity couple are you rooting for? Some cute animal couple in a wildlife refuge somewhere that needs to breed to help rebuild the population.

I think Hoc in muro suspendam modo would be right. If you wanted a single word, suspendendum would mean “thing that is to be hung up.”
