Welcome to my crib!
You have all the resources you need to build your ideal home. Tell us about it.
My dream house would ideally be on it’s own island, like the Tracy family place in Thunderbirds.
Like this, only without giant Anthea Turner next to it
I’d have one massive house complete with all the trappings of a house designed by somebody who hasn’t quite grown up:
- Swimming pool
- Library- fully loaded with an eclectic mix of books
- Comic book library- As above but all comics and graphic novels.
- A movie theatre
- A bar with a pool table, dart board and jukebox
- Go Kart track
- Batcave style lair underneath
- Ring for mud wrestling. I watched Stripes again the other week so mud wrestling has been on my mind recently.
Googled mud wrestling and this was one of the cleanest (no pun intended) pics that came up, pretty cool cake.
Curse you, subconscious mind!
Describe the last nightmare you remember having. What do you think it meant?
Just before Christmas I had this nightmare where my little sister and her husband had been gunned down by some kind of maniac, I didn’t witness it and in the dream I heard about it on the phone from my mum, but I woke up feeling incredibly upset, scared and disorientated. It took a few minutes of lying in bed feeling totally freaked out before I calmed down.
Is that Chris’ music?!
If you had a theme song what would it be and why?
When I was in my late teens/early 20s my big sis used to say that Blink 182’s “What’s My Age Again?” reminded her of me, and at uni I always wanted a reworking of the Shaft theme about me, but I guess I’d probably have to go with Green Day’s “Longview”
Or, if I wanted something a bit more badass and struttable, “Killed by Death” by Motorhead.
Gimme an iPod
What technological device could you not live without?
Has to be my iPod Touch, because it is freaking awesome.
I listen to music almost constantly when I go out and I use it for tons of other stuff too- checking Facebook, tweeting, as an alarm clock and of course for the addictive Angry Birds. Annoyingly mine has a bit of a cracked screen after it fell out of my pocket, so I could kind of do with a new one, so if anybody who works at Apple is reading this, can I have a free one please? I’ve had two before and I buy tons on iTunes, so please, pretty please can you send me a new one?
Movie of my Life
Which actor would you pick to play you in the movie of your life?
Their not really the right age but Seth Rogen or Jonah Hill might be alright as me, or if I was going for a Brit maybe Nick Frost with his Paul haircut.
Nick Frost in Paul
Although, I always thought it’d be cool to have my biopic done as an animation, which means you could cast anyone, I’d want something completely incongruous and off the wall, like Samuel L Jackson voicing me or something.
Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
