The Ultimate Survey [you will take it if you know anything at all]

I dare you to fill this out; copy and paste the original list, and post below. Voila!

1. What is your name? Matthew (I suppose you don't have to answer this one, considering all the identity-thieving-paranoia out there these days)

2. How old are you? 25

3. Have you any siblings?Yes, one older sister

4. What is your favorite article of clothing? I like my grey western shirt the best. Most of my other clothes I don't like. Sadly, the wifey doesn't like my western shirt...

5. What is your favorite variety of potato chip? Cape Cod (Robust Russet is my favorite flavor)

6. What is your preferred type of shoe? I used to like Simples more than any other, but after 1998... I don't know... they went down in quality. Adidas Sambas are nice, but tend to stink. So Van's.

7. What three things are you most looking forward to right now? Being able to run 4 miles again, getting a job, finishing my screenplay and selling it to pay off my loans

8. If you could arrange an incredible 4-band show, what bands/musicians would you choose, and in what order? Headlining would be Death Cab For Cutie, preceded by Reuben's Accomplice, The Arcade Fire, and the Killers, in that order.

9. Cats or dogs; which is better? DOGS DOGS DOGS DOGS

10. Which would you rather eat, and how would you prepare it? Cat, hands down. I would prepare it like I might a lambchop: broiled with salt, rosemary, thyme, and parsley

11. What is the worst food you have ever tasted? I once had something called 'laab.' I believe it was a Hmong dish; I had to let it roll off my tongue to prevent it from touching the roof and sides of my mouth.

12. GUITARISTS: what company would you most like to receive an endorsement deal from? Fender has some great designs and good quality, but I think Rickenbacker, simply because it's less common to see.

13. NON-GUITARISTS: how silly are you? N/A

14. If you could start a band right now, what would it sound like, and what would you call it? We would sound like a combination of the 4 Tops, Reuben's Accomplice, the Postal Service, and the Fire Theft, and we would be called either 'Subotnik' or 'I Have Become A Shark.'

15. If a genie offered you any car in the world in mint condition, what would you wish for? Easy! 1999 Volkswagon Cabriolet, green

16. Do you have any phobias? Spiders are really creepy and even, I think, malicious, but I don't believe I can count it as a phobia.

17. If you could build a sprawling mansion in any country/region of the world, where would you build it? Probably Australia or Thailand. I would like to live in Scaramango's house from 'The Man With the Golden Gun.' He lived in a hollowed out island in the South China Sea.

18. What is your ultimate career ambition? I want to be a house-flipping screenplay writing professor of film after a satisfactory career as a movie director who dabbles in architecture and ocasionally tours with the band. :) Also, I'd like to breed Pomchi's.

19. What CD are you listening to right now? Starflyer 59: "The Fashion Focus"

20. What is the next CD you plan to purchase? The Killers: "Sam's Town"

21. If you were to write a survey, what would be your ultimate goal in doing so? To extol the virtues of Cape Cod potato chips. Seriously, they're that good.

22. What is your opinion on music and software piracy? I think people who make music or write code are hardworking craftspeople, and deserved to be payed for what they do.

23. What is your strangest possession? Probably my Male Nurse action figure, although I think I still have one of Andy's dreadlocks....

24. Where would you like to retire to? Somewhere with no property or state income tax. I belive Florida qualifies...

25. What is one thing that most people don't know about you? I want to be a doctor.

26. If you could instantly learn one language, which would you choose? German! yah!

27. What do you consider a fair price for ostrich meat (by the pound)? Considering the availability and the relatively low demand, I'd say... seven or eight dollars a pound? maybe? I don't know.

28. What is the last movie you saw in a theater? The Breakup

29. Where are you right now? The Waukesha Library
