Hooray! 70sscifiart published my Logan’s Run fan art. I’m also selling buttons of it too on my Etsy store.
Nominated by perspectiveacles
1. What have you been up to today?
Well, today I didn’t do a whole lot. I went grocery shopping with my sister in the morning, and I pretty much read graphic novels all afternoon. I consider reading them as research. I finished off Neil Gaiman’s Sandman Vol 3: Dream Country, then started/finished Bryan Lee O’Malley’s new one Seconds, and started The Underwater Welder by Jeff Lemire. Then after supper I went over to my friend’s house where we hung out, played Heroclix, and talked a lot about the place where I used to work/where he works. I came back home and finished The Underwater Welder, chatted with Karissa on Facebook, and now I’m doing this.
2. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
I’m gonna go with a boring one and say flight. There’s just something so cool about being able to soar through the sky that I’ve always wanted to do it. (I ruled out mind control because I think it would turn me evil too quickly.)
3. What’s one thing not many people know about you?
I hate painting.
4. What’s your favourite TV program?
I believe that people shouldn’t rate their “favourite” TV show, rather, what they’re into at the moment. I’m into Downton Abbey right now. Before that, The Mindy Project.
5. If you were in charge of your own country, what’s one thing you would change?
Feudalism with iPads. Free iPads and free wifi to every home under my domain. And affordable education.
6. Where do you see yourself in ten years time?
Sitting at a desk, cracking my back, trying to sit up straight, drawing.
7. Who has been the most influential person in your life outside of your family?
My love Karissa. She inspires me to be a better person everyday, she sparks my creativity and encourages me to be the silliest possible version of myself. I’m such a happier, livelier person when I’m with her, and her kindness is a shining example for me to look up to. I can’t imagine life without her, she’s the best.
(Edit) I’ve come back to this question after answering the religion question and realized that I should add Andrew Cottrill as well. He may have not known it, but in high school and afterwards, he influenced me to be someone who seeks out truth and not to settle for easy answers. Even though we’ve gotten different answers to those questions now, he still respects me and I him. Also, he inspires me to up my funny game.
8. What’s your favourite accent?
Irish or Australian
9. What’s your favourite colour?
It’s like the TV show question. If you were to ask me as a kid, I would’ve said blue and not have given it a second thought. But right now I’m really diggin’ purple.
10. What is your spiritual or religious background?
Background: Christian > Protestant > Anabaptist > Mennonite. Which kind of Mennonite? UM or MB? I don’t know, I couldn’t care less.
Right now though, I don’t think about religion all that much. If anything, my beliefs waiver from deist to agnostic to atheist. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I haven’t thought this through; on the contrary. I just think there are so many different opinions out there that it’s ludicrous to think that one of them is true and the rest aren’t, especially when most of the arguments are spiritual and can’t be backed up by any sort of hard cold evidence. I’d really love to believe that a god out there is watching over us and has everything under control, but it’s hard when most everything you see says the exact opposite. Anyway, I don’t try to diss people’s religions, and I’m definitely open to talking about beliefs, but I don’t go around claiming to know exactly what’s up in this big ol’ universe of ours.
11. What is your favourite quote?
The first one that came to mind, after all this reminiscing is Weezer’s “If it’s too loud, turn it down.”
I nominate Andrew and Sarah (if they even end up seeing this and/or have the time. No worries if you don’t do it, I definitely understand with the baby and all).

Nevermind the captions.
Colossus has to CARRY Professor X down a flight of stairs every time he wants to leave the house?? You would think Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters would be wheelchair accessible since the guy owns the friggin’ place.
When the Blob was too powerful for Colossus and Wolverine to move, they hit him in the nuts.
They tried to explain it as teeter-tottering him up into the air, but let’s face it, they were really sacking him.
Nite Owl: What happened to us? What happened to the American Dream?
The Comedian: “What happened to the American Dream?” It came true. You’re lookin’ at it.
I had to put these two images together, they were just too eerily similar. Fiction mirroring reality and vice versa. What a shame. A terrible, terrible shame.
TIL Nightcrawler’s girlfriend was actually his sister in disguise the entire time.
And he was totally happy about it.
Next time I start eating cookies for lunch, remind me not to eat cookies for lunch.
I’ve come to the realization that if I could read and write and draw all day, I would.
