As we all know, our friend TYSON has a feature on his blog called DESERT ISLAND FILMS. I don’t remember the actual story behind it, but one day the guys at EXTRA FEATURES PODCAST got a hold of it and started talking about people’s selections on their podcasts. One day, Simon – who I think is the ring leader up there – messaged me on Twitter and mentioned that he and the boys talked about my selections on THIS PODCAST. At some point after the two hour mark, they start reading my selections and dissecting my blog a little and Simon got VERY excited about one of my favorite movies – AMBER LAKE. I don’t know if it was “good excited” or “bad excited” but he vowed to watch it “just for me” and someone else in the room said something like “Simon doesn’t speak for all of us, he just speaks too much” and someone else added something like “Goddamn how much sugar have you had??”.
Later he messaged me to ask how I liked it and I said “it was pretty good but it sound like you were dogging me a little” and he said something like “maybe a little” so here’s a little tit for tat. For someone who likes to talk so much (listen to a podcast Good and Beloved Readers) these answers are surprisingly short and terse. I present to you Simon’s questionnaire as filled out by the man himself, unedited.
Well – this is the second to last one for 2012. This has been SO MUCH FUN for me – and I hope you all too. Not only do I have a VERY special post lined up for next week, I’ve also got some really fun ones in the incubation stages for 2013!! 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 that I want to do these one at a time and do them right – I will be getting back to you, I promise : )
Thanks a lot, Simon – for doing this! Good luck with your podcasts!

You claim to be in the Ontario region of Canada. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever seen there?? Ghosts?? Vampires?? Mysterious, floating flames illuminating the night with no burning source material???

I don’t know much about Ontario but I am looking at Google maps right now. It seems there is a place at the top called Polar Bear Provincial Park. Have you ever been there? Did you see some Polar Bears?? Were you forced to tangle with one or were they all just sitting around drinking bottles of Coke???
no never been there. I should go thou I like polar bears and coke.
I don’t know much about Canada in general and I hate to make assumptions since I once got publicly shamed when I assumed Tyson participated in the opening of the London Olympic Games but – where I live, in the middle of America, it’s HOT all the time and the only sports people really care about are football, baseball and basketball. A few years ago a couple of Canadian dudes moved to the local university here and wanted a place to Curl so they set up the first and only Oklahoma Curling Club, of which I am a founding member. So, after that exciting lead-up – do you Curl and are you any good???
never curled who would want to
