When You Can't Come Up With Your Own Post, Memeage!

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile" and I will respond by asking you five questions that satisfy my curiosity. Update your journal with the answers to the questions, including this in the post.

1. What anime series really hooked you and got you interested in the rest of the medium?
It's cliche, but Neon Genesis Evangelion was the first series that really hooked me. I was watching Ranma 1/2 with a friend when he started collecting NGE and Blue Seed (Another excellent series). We got about halfway through the series before I knew I needed my own copies and started collecting. From there it was Blue Seed, Utena fansubs, Wings of Honneamise, Cowboy Bebop and Trigun, amongst others. Can't say it wasn't worth it, on oh so many levels. :)

2. When's the next Dining with Sporks going to hit the Net?
As soon as Phil does his part. He's got about half a dozen reviews just waiting for his side of the story, but without it, it's a one sided affair. Which may be the answer to getting the site back up.

3. Read anything good lately?
The City & The City, by China Mieville. It's about a murder in a city called Beszel, and they quickly learn that the victim is from a place called Ul Quoma, which is problematic for our investigators - you see, Beszel and Ul Quoma occupy the same physical space, and the citizens of each 'unsee' the other to prevent breaching - which is policed by a mysterious group known only as 'Breach'. And when they discover that the victim was researching the possibility of a third city, hiding between the other two...

It's damn good.

4. Will we (broadly interpreted as the AD staff and other hangers-on) ever get to meet The L***** G***** Who Is Not Your Wife?
Probably not, but who knows? I'm betting she's finding the whole thing hilarious in the extreme.

5. How's that webcomic convention coming along?
Hell if I know. You're better off asking Anton on that front.


Resistance is futile!
1. What do you miss most about being the Chair at AD?

2. What do you miss least about being the Chair at AD?

3. Any good books lately you haven't already written up on your LJ?

4. Aside from the looming over impressionable youth, what's your fave moment as a substitute teacher so far?

5. Are you ever going to get a console and get online so we can still have Halo (or other FPS) massacres...er... parties?
1. The camaraderie. I really looked forward to the meetings (well, most of them) because let's face it, that's where most of my friends were in Minnesota. I made some lasting friendships through AD, which is more than I can say for a lot of the other conventions and groups I was involved in up there.

2. Probably the drama. There was no avoiding it, even though I'm aware that staff in my second year tried very hard to shield me from some of it.

3. Unfortunately, no. I'm pretty good about posting my reaction to the new stuff in a timely manner.

4. Getting paid. Cash rules everything around me right now.

5. An XBox 360 is on the shopping list but is pretty far down on the list of "things to buy when I have a job again". Besides, I know you only want me to pad your kill count. ;)

Of course - that's only a reasonable response.

Besides, I know you only want me to pad your kill count. ;)

Aww, you say that like it's a bad thing! Shotgun to the head, biyatch!
Resistance is futile? Resistance is /futile/. Resistance...is futile. Resistance /is/ futile.
1. If you were a butterfly... no, seriously, how's the family? Are you the recognized pater familias now?

2. What campaigns are you running, and are any of them a patch on that Exalted game?

3. Did you attempt Nanowrimo this year in an unofficial attempt, or not go at all? (With your schedule, I completely understand if you decided to take a pass this year)

4. Any closer to setting a date for a major event (wink wink) that would require airplane fare/a road-trip to see the new digs?

5. Would you be willing to try Virtual Tabletop software to still run some games with the folks back in MN?
resistance is.....futile.
1. I know you've been loving the Peace Corps, any idea how long you're going to stay abroad with it?

2. How much of what you teach do you think is retained? You've said that some of the students have never seen a computer prior to the class, and I'm wondering how many of them go on to really seize what you're bringing them.

3. Is there anywhere besides Ghana you'd like to go with the Corps? Any other countries you'd like to help out in?

4. What was your favorite moment in the Orpheus game? (Self aggrandizing, I know, but I still want to know)

5. Gone native yet?
