an interview

She sent me an email, and I'm going to give her a link, which she bet that I wouldn't do, and I'm also going to answer the questions--- although I think she could have probed deeper into the Acidman psyche if she had tried.

I think she just recycles the same questions, but here are MINE:

5 questions for Acidman

1) If a movie was made of your life, what would it be called and who would play you?

"The Cracker Chronicles." You'd need at least THREE actors to play me. Jerry Mathers as a boy, Geraldo Rivera as a young man and Ken Curtis as an old fart.

2) What meal would you have for your last supper?

Pussy, and a Shiner Bock beer. If I'm about to die, I want to go out with a smile on my face.

3) Which 3 fictional people would you most like to talk to over a beer?

Dorian Gray. Jack Crabb. Yossarian.

4) List 10 words that describe how you would like others to define you.

That's not a good question, because I know a lot of people who I want to think well of me, and a lot of others that I could give a shit about. I'll give you ten words that I think describe me.

1. Witty
2. Talented
3. Loud
4. Charming
5. Dangerous
6. Intelligent
7. Dynamic
8. Honest
9. Proud
10. Unashamed

5) If you could travel back through time, where would you go and why?

I'd go back to the day Jennifer gave me her phone number and I'd throw that piece of paper into the Savannah River. Calling HER was the biggest mistake I ever made in my life. But I don't think I WANT to go back in time.

Have you ever seen the movie The Butterfly Effect? If not, I'll tell you this--- a guy learns that he CAN travel through time, so he goes back over and over again to "correct" mistakes he made in the past. Every time he tries that, he comes back to the present with a more fucked-up situation than the one he went to correct. He didn't "fix" anything. He just made it worse by meddling.

Now, if I could just go back and live as a frontiersman in the 19th century, I'd go for that. But I'm not interested in changing the past.

See? I'll answer interview questions.



Thank you!


'll come up with some really probing stuff if you want btw :)

If you can go back in time and still keep the knowledge that you have accumulated through the present, then go back as a 17 year old boy and have a lot of fun.

I'd go back to 1953 and strangle my old man. =)

Seriously, I'd change only one thing, which I won't discuss, but it probably couldn't be changed anyway. DNA, heredity, and all that, ya know.
(And for the pervert trolls around here, it ain't anything to do with "homo".)
Tho I could see strangling my second ex-wife, there's a thought.....
Not to mention the puta I've lived with for 6 years...
Escape requires moolah. Got none. Paycheck to paycheck.
I made choices over the years that prevent me from retiring in style, like some of you old bastards. So I have to own up and live with them.
Those of you that did not, and retired in style, my hat's off to you!

The "go back with what you know" thing was done once in a novel called "Replay". The guy kept dying of a heartattack in 1988. When he wakes up, he has traveled back in time and is now a younger version of himself, with all the memories of his previous lives. He keeps doing this over and over...pretty good book actually.

Geraldo Rivera??? Eeeewwwwwwwwwww!

Fully believe , 1, 2, 3, 6, and 10 and I'll take you word for the rest. You have a honest face. WHahahahaha

Geraldo Rivera's an older fart than you are.

I thought the Simpsons did the "going back in time" meme the best - Homer accidentally invents a time machine while trying to fix the toaster. He goes back to dinosaur times, breaks a twig (or something simlarly benign), and comes back to find everything has changed. In one iteration, everything is fine, except that Marge has never heard of a "donut." Homer panics and goes back in time again - meanwhile Marge observes that "it's raining again" - donuts. On the last iteration, everyone eats with forked, adhesive tongues, and Homer decides it's close enough.

Baldi, MY DAUGHTER told me I looked like Geraldo Rivera when I was 38. I think I look more like Foster Brooks now.

Damn, isn't hindsight a wonderful thing...


Rob - What situation from your past evokes the strongest feeling of love?

And same question for hate?

And ooh, ooh, btw, bet you won't send me some of the wine you made ;)

meh..worth a shot..

I think you resemble Ted Turner actually...(no way do you look like Foster Brooks) Although he was one funny bastard....come to think of it, so is Ted Turner...

Posted by: Ruth on July 31, 2005 10:29 PM

Jack Crabb - I agree.

I've always played the "what if" back in time with what I know (or even just enough of it to change course) game, but I usually conclude that I'd miss too much good that would never happen if I changed things for "the better."

Still, there's a lot I would change...

Way I figure it is my opportunity to "change" how things turn out is to teach and guide my children well enough to make better decisions and know what I didn't know (in the more generic sense than what specifically will happen in 10 years).
