    This was a thread that made the rounds in the old days, and I figure it's time for it to be back. :D I'll start it off, of course.

    Favorite Color: Maize and Blue!!

    Favorite Animal/Pet: Cats and cockatiels.

    Favorite Films (aside from the SW films of course): Batman Begins/The Dark Knight, Silence of the Lambs, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Glory, LotR (all 3), Spider-Man/2/3, Star Trek II & First Contact, all the Friday the 13ths/Nightmare on Elm Streets, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness, They Live...you know, just too many to list. :p

    Favorite Music: True rock-and-roll (Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Van Halen, Ted Nugent/Damn Yankees, AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Guns'n'Roses, Judas Priest, Metallica, etc), classical/operas

    What Do You Most Regret Doing/Not Doing? Being unable to stay a Marine because of the unluckiest of medical reasons.

    If you could be anyone (alive or dead or fictional) who would you be and why? This is a tough one, I'd have to say Theodore Roosevelt. I admire his intelligence, energy, enthusiasm, and eloquence.

    What's Your Current Job? Searching for one. :p

    What's Your Dream Job? It would be President of the United States, but his powers are too bogged down by checks and balances and I can just see myself having the same popularity issues as W. So Marine Corps Commandant or tenured historical professor, heh.

    Do you have anyone in your family, who you're really close to? If so, who and why? I'm not really close to anybody, but I'd have to say my dad and brother are the closest.

    If you could live in the Star Wars galaxy for a day, what planet would you go to and why? Another tough call. It'd be interesting to visit Coruscant and see a city-planet but I think I'm gonna go with Csilla because of my Thrawn fandom.

    What three things do you want to achieve before you die? I want a family of my own, I want to be a published author, and I want to somehow get into space just once.

    Website: http://www.mswcc.com I'll only push this one since it's Star Wars related, there is also a Star Wars myspace page, my own facebook page, and several other web sites I touch in one way or another from design/programming standpoint.

    What Do You Most Regret Doing/Not Doing? dont have any that i can think of at the moment.

    If you could be anyone (alive or dead or fictional) who would you be and why? TobyMac (maybe its just because I'm listening to him now) he is paid to do what he loves (that is awesome) he is a positive influence and strong christian.

    What's Your Current Job? Digital Designer/Art Director

    What's Your Dream Job? I love what I do, if I could do it with less time restrictions or budget limits it would be even better. I would think any job with Star Wars or Red Wings would be killer (I'm sure people could find sucky ones though.)

    Do you have anyone in your family, who you're really close to? If so, who and why? My wife and kids, not close to anyone else. We want to be a close family now so that when the kids get older they want to stay around and still be in our lives with thier kids and so on...

    If you could live in the Star Wars galaxy for a day, what planet would you go to and why? Naboo, it would be cool to see the beauty of the land. Coruscant would be cool too, from upper levels.

    What three things do you want to achieve before you die? I've only ever had one obvious goal in live, I don't tent to set many of them for myself. I guess one thing would be to see great grand children and have a very fun, close family. See my children choose to become christians would be one of the biggest. For fun, I would like to get Republic Commando Armor and troop with the 501st.


    Well, that's me, as best as these questions can get anyway. Hope you enjoyed.
