Send help, I’ve been ‘Tagged’

11 Apr

Well, I’ve been tagged! And I know what you’re thinking.

“What’s ‘tagged’, why should I care, and what does this have to do with Animation?”

“Tagged” is this game circulating about the wordpress-o-sphere. My first follower and fellow animation enthusiast, The Animation Commendation, has tagged me. Basically Animation Commendation answered 11 questions. He tagged 11 followers. I, as one of those followers, answer 11 questions. Then I tag some other people, and they answer stuff.

This doesn’t have too much to do with animation, but you will get to learn a little bit about myself. And it’s always nice to know who the Sam Hill is behind the blog you follow, right?

The More You Know, right?

All right, let’s get started.

1) What is your least favorite color and why?

Oh boy, this is even harder than choosing a favorite color. In all honesty, I don’t have one? I even like browns and grays. But as far as lipstick colors go, I’m not big on Coral Blue #2.

“Actually it’s Coral Blue #3”

2) What word do you always mess up when trying to spell it correctly?

I end up spelling”Atheistic” instead of “Aesthetic” and those are two totally different things

3) What is your favorite animated film?

WALL-E. Maybe it’s my love for Silent Films. Perhaps it’s my fascination with Post-Apocalyptic scenarios. It could be how I was just so impressed with how the animators were able to carry a whole film with two characters-lacking in features like eyebrows and mouths- and still make them very expressive. Its humor, its heart, its pathos. Magnificent. (I’m actually terrified of robots however. They don’t bother me in this film. But robots creep me out in general)

I also am really fond of Pinocchio, Dumbo, and Ratatouille.

4) What is your least favorite animated film?

“What in God’s name is this?” ask those who were fortunate enough not to see it.

5) What school subject would you like to be eradicated from the curriculum?

I was going to say math, but that’s actually extremely important. I won’t go so far as to say it should be eradicated. But probably French. It’s an important language as far as culture and history goes. But Spanish, Japanese, German, Mandarin, Arabic, Portuguese are all much more useful languages for the 21st century. (As far as international business and technology are concerned). As I said before, maybe not get rid of it completely, but definitely we need to invest in other language classes as well.

The fuck is this

I’m sorry Bread Thief and main character of Les Miserables, Jean Valjean. But French has had it’s time in the spotlight. Also, I’m sorry to my French relatives and ancestors. Maybe its the German blood of me coming through.

6) Which celebrity have you met? And if you’ve never met one, which would you like to meet?

None! I actually live in the same neck of the woods as John Lasseter (The current Big Cheese at Pixar and Disney), and literally everyone in my family has met him except for me. The one out of all of us who is a big animation nut. Just my luck.

My life would get infinitely better if I met Steve Carell, Jon Stewart, or Stephen Colbert.

The triumvirate

7) Do you believe that the Loch Ness Monster exists?

Of course! And that bastard owes me Tree Fiddy. Don’t give him money.

8) If this is that, and that is this, then would a little bit of this and a little bit of that equal to one this or one that?



9) Did you understand the previous question?


“Ohhh! This makes it perfectly clear”

10) How amazing am I on a scale of 10 to 10?

A solid VIII 1/2

11) What song would you like to be your theme song to be played as you enter a room?

This would be intense.

Alright. So I have 13 followers so far! And you’re all amazing. Some of you have already been tagged, and some of you don’t have blogs. So my list of tagees is a bit small.

2. Have you ever cried during an Animated Movie?

3. Would you rather star in a Western or a Sci Fi Film?

4. Which language do you wish you were fluent in?

5. How is a Raven like a Writing Desk?

6. What’s one quote that really inspires you?

7. How many States in the United States have you been to?

8. Which Disney character are you most like?

9. What is the cheesiest movie you’ve ever seen?

10. If you could be a bird, which bird would you be?

11. What is one job that you’d be terrible at?

The best of luck my friends! I look forward to reading your responses!

    Great answers, I love your sense of humor as well 😀 !

    Ok seriously, you HAVTA meet John Lasseter! I don’t care if you have to camp out in front of his house all night, but u HAVTA meet him and get a picture taken with him and post it here, lol!

    Yeah, “Planet 51” was atrocious, but my least favorite is a tie between “A Troll in Central Park” and “Doogal”!

    How did you make that picture with Honest John reading my question?! I’m extremely ignorant in regards to pictures and editing! Did you use Paint or Photoshop or something?

      Thank you so much! And for tagging me too of course!

      I don’t even know what I would do if I met him. Probably thank him, for all he’s done. Sometimes he attends the screenings of his films at the local theatre, so if I see him during Monsters, University I will totally post it here!

      I thought Planet 51 would be cool. Just the idea of it during the 1950s and being ironic and a reverse of the old Sci Fi films. So much potential, and it flopped so. Bad. And part of me wants to see A Troll in Central Park, and part of me doesn’t!

      I’m terrible at making graphics, I rarely do it! I’m glad you like it though. I found the Honest John picture with the blank sketchpad by searing “Honest John Meme”. Then I opened it in paint and typed your question on it. (But be sure to make the text background is set on transparent).

    The deed is done.
    And at one in the morning.
