What would be the first five babies you would pick for the evil baby orphanage?
Favorite non-sciencey Hank Green song?
Can I choose Hank and the Katherine's cover of On the Rise?
If not then maybe Goodbye Brotherhood 2.0
Unless I have to pick something that's been on an album, then I guess perhaps Shake-a-booty or Nerdfigherlike
Rank the following in order of most awesomeness and give reasons: Farscape, Doctor Who, Firefly, Angel, Sherlock
You are an evil evil person.
I don't wanna!
They're all so awesome.
fine. If I have to. Order is based on preference at the moment, but it tends to change around a bit every now and again.
1) Farscape. Because it's Farscape. No seriously. It's awesome. I want you guys to watch it and love it as much as I do so I can have someone to talk to about it. Maybe the animitronic puppet thing isn't what some of you all would think is interesting or appealing, but it's well done (most of it). I mean one of my favorite characters is one of the puppets! Pilot is awesome! I say awesome a lot! (It's actually weird to call it a puppet because it's actually alot more sophisticated than what you would expect what with all the gizmos and electronics and what-nots that make it work.) Ok um, reasons. I love the story. Not just the main story of 'astronaut flung into another galaxy', but the interactions among all the characters and how they develop throughout the series (and other awesome storylines that I can't talk about on the off chance any of you actually watch the show).
I'd like to insert something Ben Browder said at one of the conventions, mainly just because on that particular day I watched the video it just struck a chord for whatever reason:
"It's very important in the story that-- you know, you began with John just looking for a way home. But him finding his home is the real story. That's the real story, it's the story all of us have, particularly in America where we all run off to different parts of the world or different parts of the country and our families are fractured. It's the part that resonates with me personally, and I think it resonates with a great number of people, that the journey of our life is creating a home - it's creating a family. Because our parents are gonna die at some point, we're going to lose friends along the way, -- but how you create a home, how you create a family, that's [John's] journey."
And if any of that is too sentimental, there are also lots of explosions and stuff in the series.
And the acting is great. Great in so many different ways. And there are several different images from different episodes that are just plain epic. I just love it ok? And it's fandom is awesome, too. I think it was the first or among the first to bring back a cancelled show for a conclusion like Firefly fans did with Serenity like a year or so later.
2) Doctor Who. Because David Tennant as the tenth doctor is amazing. Also Christopher Eccelston is awesome. And, well, most of you already know why it's a cool show.
3) Sherlock. Because it didn't (or hasn't) get cancelled after like 13 episodes leaving a little hole of "I want it back" in my soul. And the last episode of the second season is just - well awesome.
4) Firefly. Space Western! Joss Whedon! So awesome. But it got cancelled, leaving with just a 'whelp, here we are'
5) Angel. It's been a long time since I watched Angel. I remember it being awesome, and I'm sure I would still feel that way if I watched it again.
Favorite Firefly character? Least favorite (among the main characters)?
Least Favorite: Probably Book. Not that I dislike him, I just find the rest more interesting.
Favorite way to waste time?
What are you most looking forward to about this semester?
Not waking up at 7:30 every day.
Pajamas or sweatpants?
Winter or summer?
Anna Beth has told me that was not an adaquate answer. So, um, because the roadtrip's coming up, I have to pick summer.
Do you have trouble remembering to write the next year after New Year's (for example, writing 2013 now instead of 2012)? If so, how long do you think it takes you to stop writing it wrong?
I haven't needed to write the date recently, but back in high school it took me a good 3 or 4 weeks ot get the hang of a new date.
Favorite language you know (I may have asked you this before...)?
I don't remember what I picked last time, but as of right now I pick American Sign Language.
Favorite language you don't know?
At this particular moment it's Hebrew, but there are few others also vying for top spot.
If you couldn't be Jillian Maureen Sensel, what would you rename yourself (you can't say Jill, either, or any other shortening of one of your existing names)?
If I couldn't be named Jill Maureen Sensel (cuz that's my name, thanks for telling the interenet that Sara Elizabeth Abell), I pick Wren Katherine Ligouri, for no particular reason at all :P
Favorite John Green book?
The Fault in Our Stars
If you could turn any of your hobbies into a career, what would you choose (like, get paid to watch YouTube videos or draw or something)?
If I could be paid for marathoning through TV shows (or other such things), that would be the coolest thing ever.
What YouTuber do you think each of us corresponds to, personality-wise or other-wise? Explain plz!
Since you all have YouTube accounts, I'm tempted to just choose you all for yourselves, but that's probably cheating.
Ugh, too hard. um, let me think. You guys are just you to me, not someone else.
Rachael - Alli Trippy (CTFxC) - I think their fashion sense can be similar at times. And they both like to have a good time. And uh, I don't know. It seemed like the closest match I could think of. and uh, Alli spent a semester in Spain, and uh Rachael's part Mexican, so that sort of -- ok, I think that makes me sound racist.
Anna Beth - LizzieBennet. (you didn't say anything about fictional YouTubers) Cuz AB will be happy to be with Darcy....and other similarites AB may hit me for.
Sara - Amazingphil - mainly because he's got the little repuatation of being the 'innocent' one between himself and Dan, and you're pretty naive sometimes.
Jill - Emily (thebrainscoop) - Not that our personalities or characteristics are the same. Just because she dissects stuff on her channel and that's cool.
Do you think Sara looks more like Helena Bonham Carter or Audrey Hepburn? (Note this is an either-or question, so don't cop out like Sara! :p)
Helena Bonham Carter
What's the silliest lie you've ever told?
No, you're not crazy, Anna Beth.
What are you looking forward to in 2013, besides our roadtrip/vidcon and England?
Maybe skydiving with Rachael if that ends up happening.
Would you rather wake up one day and discover that the entire world is one giant musical and everyone has to sing (including you) or wake up one day and discover that the entire world is pink (including everything you own)?
If my voice were replaced with that of someone who could actually sing, I'd pick the musical ONLY if it WEREN'T like Les Miserables were literally everything is singing. In all other cases, I'd choose pink.
Are you ever going to watch Downton Abbey?
I watched an episode with you tonight. I admit it's not high on the list, but maybe someday. Wanna trade episodes of Farscape for episodes of Downtown Abbey?
How many hours would you say you've devoted to Farscape over winter break?
Well, there are 88 episodes in the 4 seasons produced, each around 45 minutes long. Plus the 3 hour miniseries. Plus the time I spent rewatching some favorites and some commentaries and convention videos and actor interviews online and episode blog analyses.
I think the total is somewhere around 130 hours. um, I'm not crazy I promise.
Why do we have to go back to school?
To avoid real life starting
Where are my keys?
Somewhere in Wilmore....hopefully. Or maybe they're on they're own adventure through the wilderness until they find they're way back home...much like the movie Homeward Bound - a movie you should watch.
Which was more difficult to draw, Otterbatch or Mitten?
Otterbatch. The ears in particular. Otters have small ears. It was hard to figure out how to make sure it definitely looked like an otter.
What's your favorite board game?
Under the assumption it must be a game that has a physical board (unlike some other party games sold like 'board games' like taboo or apples to apples or Funglish) I guess maybe Life?
Would you rather have a tumblr, pinterest, or twitter account?
What's the #1 thing you want to see/do in London?
Besides all of it, maybe Trocadero?
What do you want to do in Vegas?
Win enough money to pay for the trip, not that I'll be doing much gambling though.
Ben Browder or Nathan Fillion?
Be- no. Nath- no. um. Bethan. Nen. no. um. well. uhhhhhhhhh
I guess Ben Browder, maybe.
Or David Tennant?
What is your ideal image of the way the Etc. section should be used, or do you think we should abolish it all together?
I don't know. I don't want to be mean and say abolish it (particularly because I don't want to just delete the stuff that's already there) but I don't know what use it is. Since we're down to 4 steady bloggers, we're kinda free to blog whenever we want as long as we also blog on the assigned day. Do you have any preferences for what you want to see the Etc section used for?
What Once Upon a Time pairings do you ship, and which is your least favorite pairing (doesn't have to be an official couple)?
August + Emma
Snow White + Prince Charming
sort of but not really Archie + Regina
Least favorite as of right now Dr Whale + Red, because I don't really see it as a thing at all.
What fairytale do you want to be in?
Sleeping Beauty -Disney version- wouldn't be so bad.
Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men?
I did a few hours ago when you played the entire soundtrack to Les Miserables as we unpacked.
What's taters, precious?
PO-TA-TOES. Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew.
What raging fire shall flood the soul?
A nice big toasty bonfire!
When will the flames at last consuuuuuuume us?
When someone throws the DVD on a fire?
Birds fly over the rainbow. Why, then, oh why can't I?
Because you don't have wings and apparently you don't have access to a Jetpack, Helicopter, or Airplane. How about you go jump in that Tornado and give that a shot?
And that's it for Question Sunday. The winner this week is The Phantom, as he asked a question about fire, and I like fire. Since The Phantom is unable to accept the prize of winning, it will instead go to Anna Beth, because she didn't asked to rank my favorite shows based on preference.
