What is the latest book or movie that made you cry?
Neil Gaiman's "Blueberry Girl" mae me quite emotional.
What fictional character is most like you?
Probably the protagonist in most Murakami stories. A little passive, simply allowing life and peculiar events to happen to him up to a point where he really must act to take back control or risk losing everything.
What is the greatest album ever?
This is a hard one, there are so many that I love. Every song evokes certain feelings and makes you think of that time and place in your life when you first heard it. So I guess by that standard, I would have to choose something that has stood the test of time, and that would be "Brothers in Arms" by Dire Straits.
Ok, Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter?
Definitely Lord of the Rings, followed by Star Trek, Harry Potter and Star Wars.
What is your ideal brain food?
What accomplishment are you most proud of and why?
Managing to convince my wife that she should marry me.
You want to be remembered for....?
Being the best husband, father, son, brother and friend.
Of those who've come before, the most inspirational are?
Joseph Campbell who actually did follow his bliss.
The creative masterpiece you wish bore your signature?
"The Sandman" Graphic Novels.
Your hidden talents are?
My ability to float on my back in water for an inordinate period of time.
