Now: My Greg Simkins Upper Playground Walrus vinyl toy.

What is your most bizarre childhood memory? Hmmm… not sure if its the most bizarre, but its the first thing to come to mind. When I was in 5th grade we went on a school trip to Washington DC and one night I creeped myself out because I tricked myself into thinking one of the guys in my hotel room was an alien and it took me forever to fall asleep after that.

What is your Favorite Comic/Manga? Hmmm… either Justice because its amazing or Kyle Baker’s Plasticman because the character and artwork is so fun!

What is your Favorite Anime/Cartoon? Looney Tunes! Daffy Duck is my favorite.

What is your Most Favorite Movie? Animal House

What is your Favorite Bumper Sticker? Hmmm… I’m not sure, but I remember reading a funny shirt once that said “Save a tree wipe you ass with an owl”. That shirt was funny, if it is a bumper sticker then that would be my favorite.

What is your Favorite T-Shirt? Just this plain yellow shirt I have, it’s awesome. Its the shirt I painted myself in for the Tate’s Self Portrait show

What is your Dream Car? 1987 toyota van “toyowagon”. I had one once, but then it died 🙁 One day I will buy another one and fix it up.

What superpowers do you wish you possessed? Teleportation. I could be anywhere I felt like whenever and I would never have to drive again ever. It would be awesome!

If you could banish anyone into the sun, who would it be?
Kanye West! This has nothing to do with the MTV video music awards either. I’ve always hate him!

Which character on The Simpsons do you identify most with?
Probably Itchy, because I hate cats. Not to the extent of him though, I don’t hurt animals.

Most treasured possession? My ring my grandparents gave me when I turned 13. My dad made it and my grandpa engraved it.
