Tyson Carter is an English fellow who runs a pretty wicked blog over at HEAD IN A VICE. In his own words he’s “a lazy fucker who is getting other people to do all of his work for him”. That might not be verbatim but he does have some fun projects going on like his DESERT ISLAND FILMS and THE IMDB TOP 250 (of which I am a participant in both). Recently I doled out some of my old English Pounds that I collected during the 80s, rented out a pub and sat down with Tyson who barely paid me any attention and spent the entire time checking his stats on his cell phone, squeaking in excitement.
(One thing I would like to note on this fifth installment here. The purpose of the first fifteen questions being the same is to have fun and see how diverse we all are – and this has been nothing but awesome. An observation I have made is that everyone has answered the questions differently – which is greatness – and, everyone has sent me back their responses in different formats. Some are bullets, some are hyphens, and here’s Tyson who added our names on each line. LOVE IT!)
THANK YOU TYSON FOR DOING THIS!!!!
We’ve definitely had a LOAD OF FUN doing these since this debuted over a month ago!! I honestly can’t believe the positive response!!! You are all so awesome!!! As always, I never want to be a bother to anyone, so if anyone else is interested in doing this you can like this page or like THIS PAGE or leave me a comment or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – If you have “expressed” interest and I haven’t gotten back to you, I would never ignore you, it’s just I want to do these one at a time and do them right – I will be getting back to you, promise : )
Eric – I gag uncontrollably when I brush my teeth, do you?
Tyson – No, I’m normal.
Eric – If your best friend or loved one turned into a shit eating vampire, would you stake them in the heart?
Tyson – Yes, no problem.
Eric – The Shining scared me so bad when I saw it as a kid that I can’t watch it again. Thoughts?
Tyson – It’s my favourite horror movie, but I was quite old when I first saw it. Poltergeist frightened me as a child. Also, you should man up and watch it now you’re an adult.
Eric – You’re at a bar drinking Brandy with Jesus Christ (whatever your religious affiliation is or is not). What do you ask him?
Tyson – How did his dad manage to convince people he created EVERYTHING!
Eric – John Leguizamo. Yes or no?
Tyson – Would I sleep with him? No, I’m a heterosexual married man. If you’re asking me if I like his films, I do think he has done some great work. Summer of Sam & The Fan would be his 2 stand-outs in my eyes.
Eric – Worst movie you’ve ever seen? Note: Anything by Uwe Boll is off the table.
Tyson – Uwe Boll has done 1 very good film – Rampage, and 1 decent one – Stoic. My worst would be REC 3 🙂 I joke, probably The Love Guru. As a huge Mike Myers fan it upsets me to see him doing so bad.
Eric – I have a blog friend who claims she doesn’t eat olives, what do you think about that?
Tyson – She is normal, I don’t eat them. Olives are the work of the devil.
Eric – Could you saw your own arm off with a pocket knife if you had to?
Tyson – Yes, but I would never let myself get in that situation. I am a cross between Les Stroud & Bear Grylls. 🙂
Eric – If you could adopt an unorthodox pet (no cats or dogs, etc) what would you pick and what would you name him or her? I would pick a Giraffe and name him or her Sgt. Peppers.
Tyson – Piranha. He would be called Jigsaw, as ever since I saw them in Saw 6 I have wanted one.
Eric – You have to have a clock on your desk (no phones or computers). Do you go digital or analog?
Tyson – Digital. I used to have an analogue (correct English spelling) clock that went backwards, so now even when the numbers are in the right order I have trouble reading clocks. Plus I’m dyslexic with numbers so that doesn’t help.
Eric – What are your thoughts on the new trend of hat wearing?
Tyson – Is this a trick question? I like hats. I would love to be able to wear a cowboy hat like Michael Madsen but I don’t think I pass it off very well. (ED: I am talking about these fedoras I see every where and on TV… I am sure I am just way behind in my Haute Coture. Maybe you could start a new trend of sporting a bowler…?)
Eric – I am not a big fan of big, puffy vests because I don’t understand why you would only want your chest warm in the winter. Please provide your thoughts.
Tyson – For once I agree with you. I have never owned or worn one and I can’t envisage myself ever doing so.
Eric – You walk into someone’s office at work and it’s clear they have just farted, what do you do?
Tyson – Ask them who died in their room. I’m not subtle.
Eric – Have you ever eaten a Turducken? If so, what did you think?
Tyson – Isn’t that a noise someone made in Street Fighter? After a quick google check I can safely say I have not.
Eric – Texting or calling? What is your preferred method of communicating with another human?
Tyson – Calling. I’m a terrible texter, I often read them in my sleep and forget to reply.
Eric – The USA Today website is reporting that your constant nude Gangnam Style video antics across the streets of London have trended past that whole “Prince Harry” thing. How does it feel to rise to the top of the internet celebrity world?
Tyson – I imagine I was already at the top after my WhatCulture! article went global. So it feels natural, and that I deserve to be here.
Eric – I don’t know if you get it over there but in the states here we have a show called Big Brother where a bunch of people are stuck in a house all summer and dwindle away one by one by getting voted off. It involves a LOT of lying and backstabbing but it’s actually kind of entertaining. The winner gets something like 500,000 dollars. If you were selected to be in this competition would you win or be the first to go?
Tyson – Pretty sure we got it before you. It was created by a Dutch company and I’m sure we were the second country to get it. I applied years ago but never got anywhere. I would win for sure, people like me, but I don’t always like people. (ED: I see…)
Eric – If you click on the header images on my place here, you’ll go through a random selection of about 30 different ones. What is your favorite one and why?
Tyson – I believe this is a ploy to get me to click and give you 30 extra ‘hits’ for your site. 🙂 I like the haunted style one I have seen before I believe. I also like how you do it and just presumed you changed it daily. Please email me and tell me how you have this setting. Gracias amigo 🙂 (ED: I just wanted some feedback on all of the hard work I have been doing….. : ( )
Eric – I don’t know how many people live in London but I think it’s a lot. I also think every citizen of London had a part in the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics this year. What was your role? Don’t lie.
Tyson – A lot of Americans from my personal experience believe everyone in England lives in London. When I toured your great country everyone we met said the same thing when we said we were from England. ‘Oh cool, London must be great place to live’. I actually live in a place called The Lake District. You should google it, truly a beautiful area of the country. So to answer your question, I had no role, I didn’t even watch any of it, except the 100m final and whenever Jessica Ennis was on. (ED: When we first “met”, I told you something like ‘ my wife and I have always wanted to get to London, if we ever make it I’m buying you a beer or 19.’ You replied with something like ‘Cool I live in the lake district.’ I figured that was some sort of borough of London. Like Queens or The Bronx of New York. Or The Business District of New Orleans. Sorry, Ace)
Eric – Lastly – WHAT THE FUCK is wrong in your head that you think REC 3 is a bad movie?????
Tyson – See answer to question 1. 🙂 I tried to answer this in my review; if it wasn’t part of the REC franchise I would have liked it as a stand alone, neat little zombie movie, not great but not bad. Sadly it is meant to be a continuation and for that reason it sucks balls! Cheesy, not scary, hammy acting aside from the hot leading lady. The lead guy dressed in a suit of armour and there was a Spongebob impersonator called Sponge John. Not what I want to see as a part 3 in an all time great zombie franchise.
Cheers for this Eric, always a pleasure working with you dude. 🙂
YOU TOO TYSON!! THANKS AGAIN!!!
