You count The Godfather and The Godfather Part II among your favorite films. If you could be a Godfather character, who would it be?
I suppose I would be Tom Hagen because I would actually survive the movies, and he is a pretty smart guy. He also dies before Godfather Part III, so that’s even better.
I’ve tried watching Futurama and can’t get into it. What’s the appeal?[amazon_link id=”B0029XFNBC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Futurama[/amazon_link] has a lot of geeky jokes about Star Trek and science fiction, so I enjoy that kind of humor. There is also a ton of jokes about 90’s culture like the Beastie Boys and Sega Genesis. I can understand why it would be hard to get into, though. The characters are even stranger than [amazon_link id=”B000083C6V” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Family Guy[/amazon_link]’s talking dog and baby. You’d probably have to watch it right from episode one to care about an alcoholic robot or an alien lobster doctor named Zoidberg.
What’s your preferred gaming system?
Currently, the Xbox 360. All time, the Nintendo 64.
What’s the first game you ever played?
The original Super Mario Brothers. My dad had that game mastered.
What’s your favorite game and why?
Super Smash Brothers. It is a fighting game where you can have Mario and Pikachu battle each other. My friends and I played it all of the time during high school, and even after everyone moved away, we still find excuses to meet up and play it again.
Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows.
I was a huge professional wrestling fan back in the day. I’d watch every single Wrestlemania and my room was covered in wrestling memorabilia. The Rock was my hero when I was a kid. When he became an actor, it broke my heart. Then his movies gave me indigestion.
If you could time-travel, where would you go?
It is the unwritten rule of time-travel that you are required to kill Hitler. Since that is a given, I would probably go forward in time to see how things turn out in 100 years or so. Hopefully, the robots haven’t taken over by then.
