Well, in the spirit of This Thread, I decided to post another. If nothing else, that thread is a fine read, and good info on some of the cooliest players here at LtT.net. So here's another in the new board, with a little more in-depth topic span.

What's your name, pal: Michael Davis, the Sausage King of Chicago.

What do you do for the $$$: Doctor for the Recently Deceased. Bustin' may make you feel good, but it puts food on my table.

Where do you live: West Coast, Shmest Coast. East is where it's at, buddy.

Any pets: Two, and they're both un-freaking-ruly, I tell you what.

The one thing you like most: My girlfriend, appropriately titled Dr. Girlfriend!

The one thing you dislike most: Muggy weather really makes an old injury I got in a car wreck ache like nobody's business.


Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Character designs. Gunman, samurai, femme fatale, trickster. You can change their motives, their backstories, their jacket color but those designs are iconic.

Other anime you got the jones for: Cowboy Bebop, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Akira, Gunsmith Cats

Thing you hate about anime: The fans. The everloving, deluded, sometimes creepy fans. Ever seen someone make out with a blowup doll of Konata? I have.


Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: I don't have a lot of freetime, actually, but I try to squeeze in a book here or there. I also watch a lot of television, because it kind of raised me. It's strange, I feel weird if it's not on.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: Baseball. I used to pitch when I was young, and it's something I've always wanted to get back into. It's funny that I never did pursue it, but maybe when I've got a couple of kids I can shape them in my likeness show them a thing or two. If they're girls, man will they hate me when they grow up.

Gender: M to email. That spells, uh, Meail? Yeah. ....Yeah.

Sexual orientation: Straight, provided this doesn't interfere with liking superheros a lot. Wait, it does? Uh. Well, I've got comic books to burn, brb.

Allergies: YOU'RE FACE, PAL! Well, actually, I'm allergic to cotton. I don't know how this works, even though I've been to a buttload of dermatologists and done some research myself {hint}, but I break out in hives if I wear it. At one point I thought it might be some weird childhood thing, like it was in my head, and I even conned the previously mentioned Dr. GF into buying me some clothes of random material then trying them on without knowing what was on them, but sure enough my skin blewed up when I wore the cotton shirt for an hour. Not my brightest idea.


Anything else you'd like to mention: I came to LtT.net through knowing Reed prior to my being on-board as mod and intern, and I get paid nothin'. But he's a fun guy, and it's a blast being with these dudes {and dudettes!}, and in the roleplay we've got going on. Lupin seems to call out to me for some reason, whether it's in print or on a screen, and I love both the fandom and the fiction dang near to death. It's also an interest I've managed to hold on to for a long while, which isn't usual for me. Hopefully when my personal ten-year mark of fandom comes up, I'll still be as passionate about it!

Sweet or Sour: We have a thread on this! I'm on to your game, mister! No one pulls a fast one on ol' Feisty Geisty!

http://blightedmetal.deviantart.com

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: I'm sure I'd latch onto something else, if not that I'm a very loyal and content fan of what I love now. But I usually just chill with friends in the style of jack kerouac

Gender: chick

Sexual orientation: I'd date Lupin if he were real.

Allergies: None. I'm boring I suppose.

Anything else you'd like to mention: I had a very short stint in the USAF after high school and it didn't work out. I was young and stupid and missed my boyfriend back at home and left for him only to be dumped two years later. Oh well. We live and learn. I came home and was depressed and a bum for around a year and finally went back to school and got an associate in business admin. Now I'm currently working on a bachelors in something completely useless like art but I'd rather pursue something I love than something for the sake of practicality and a good paycheck. I'm probably crazy because of this.

Sweet or Sour:
sour cream and onion

Okay, I'll do this...

What's your name, pal: Matt

What do you do for the $$$: Construction Insurance.  The most exciting field in the world.

Where do you live: California Bay Area.

Any pets: No, but I grew up with two dogs (one of which still lives with my parents), and I want to get one for myself eventually.

The one thing you like most: Hmm... the room I call my "Library."  Because it's full of other things that I like!

The one thing you dislike most: Annoying people.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Yuji Ohno! (You thought I'd say Fujiko, didn't you?  Well, my forum name is a red herring!)

Other anime you got the jones for: The original Mobile Suit Gundam (and some of its spin-offs), Dragonball & Dragonball Z (but not GTNever GT!!), Cowboy Bebop, The Big-O.  And of course, the anime "gateway drug," Robotech!  There are others I like, but those are my all-time favorites.

Thing you hate about anime: The ridiculous character designs that have worked their way into nearly every show these days.  What happened to the "big eyes but still basically human-looking" characters they used to have?!?

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Anime is actually a very small hobby compared to other stuff.  I'm into Star Trek, Star Wars, and lots of TV shows including Lost, 24, and recently, Mad Men.  I read Marvel Comics (though I haven't enjoyed much of their output for the past several years), and I collect Transformers and G.I. Joe figures, among the occasional other collectible.  I go to the movies a lot, and I like to hang out with my friends.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your pastime be: See above -- reading comics and watching TV all day long!  I'm a big San Francisco Giants fan, too.

Gender: Male.

Sexual orientation: Straight.

Allergies: Just seasonal hay fever.  That's about it.

Anything else you'd like to mention: Not that I can think of offhand.

Sweet or Sour: Can I say both?  I like sweet & sour pork quite a bit.

Better late than never, eh?

What's your name, you sweet southern thing: Susan Jacobs

Cash, check, or plastic?: None currently, still hunting for income.

Place of residence?: Smack dab in the middle of nowhere!

Minions?: A darl'n doberman named Neli.

The one thing you like most: My brand new hammock.

The one thing you dislike most: Boredom, I have to keep busy.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: I'd have to say the music. Funky fun, iconic, the original theme's been remixed so many times but in the end the classic is the best.

Other anime you enjoy: Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, I don't see much really.

Thing you hate about anime: Poor dubbing. It's grating.

Interests and hobbies: Drawing, reading, I used to paint a lot but don't have the scratch for canvas and paints anymore. Maybe after I get a job.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: Track! Ms. Jacob's li'l girl used to run like the wind, believe you me.  Don't quite know where I'd go to jog nowadays, it's more racing other people than on your own. Then again that might be me being competitive.

Gender: Ever met a male southern Belle? I haven't.

Sexual orientation: Girls are nice but I love me some handsome boys.

Allergies: Bees. It hasn't been an issue since the family moved up north but back in Georgia if one got in five feet of me I'd have to run for the door.

Anything else you'd like to mention: I'd like to think I bake some of the best dang pecan pie on this side of the Mississippi, but I don't know for certain.

Sweet or Sour: Spicy!

What's your name, pal: For reals? Ellen. But I've never felt like an "Ellen." I've had the nickname "Ducky" since college; even before the Internet, there were people who only knew me as Ducky and could never remember my so-called "real" name; and I've only cemented that in place by adopting mizducky as my default online handle. Though relatively recently I started using loopy-chan for my Lupin cosplay account on Gaia Online, and it's turned into a whole other alternate persona for me ...

What do you do for the $$$: I am Self (Under)-Employed! ;D I had been doing computer geekery (mainly web content writing/editing and desktop publishing), but as that's dried up in the economic downturn, I've taken to doing Home Caretaker work for elderly clients to support myself through some continuing ed classes at the local community college.

Where do you live: Sunny, Silly Southern California.

Any pets: Alas, none currently, though my current housemate has a cute and amazingly non-annoying little white doggie (I think I've only heard her bark twice since I moved in a month ago). Used to always live with cats. I miss 'em.

The one thing you like most: Learning new stuff. Especially about culture, history, and arts, but just about any new stuff, I love to learn. I was one of those geeky kids who'd sit all day reading the dictionary or the encyclopedia; and today one of my favorite pastimes is to play Wikipedia Free Association. If school weren't so damn expensive, I'd be a perpetual student forever. I'd be the happiest knowledge sponge in the world.

The one thing you dislike the most: Living and/or working in a toxic environment full of psychos. Alas, I've had some really crappy luck in this department ... :P

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Oh god, you really want me to pick just one?!? Crap. Okay, right at this moment the answer is: the relationship between Lupin and Jigen. It's morphed over the years and the different media and the different series and the specials and the movies, but there's always that foxhole-buddy giving-each-other-shit but having-each-other's-back dynamic that I really dig. And the banter is fabulous. I'm a sucker for banter.

Other anime you got the jones for: My four other main favorites: Cowboy Bebop. Trigun. FLCL. Ghost in the Shell (the two movies; though I've only seen a few epsodes of the first GITS TV series, I've loved what I've seen). Others: Anyone ever heard of Vampire Princess Miyu? Loved that. Vampire Hunter D. Saw a couple of episodes of Samurai 7 and thought it was killer. Someone mentioned Akira--yep. Someone else mentioned the Big O--yep too. And I was into Astro Boy back when I was way too young to even know it was from Japan.

Thing you hate about anime: The whole excessively cute adolescent girl character trip. Moe, lolicon, whatever the heck you wanna call it. I have absolutely no interest in cutesy girly stuff, whether it be chick flicks, chick lit, or chick anime. One of the bazillion reasons why I love FLCL -- Haruko is, like, the Bizarro World anti-Cute Grrl, god/ess bless her Rickenbacker-whapping soul. Also one of the reasons I love Fujiko, for that matter--a simpering Clueless Girl she is not. Interestingly, while some pundits insist that Lady Clarisse started the whole moe trip, I have a whole soapbox speech that, especially if you follow the sub rather than the dub script of Cagliostro, you see that Clarisse is a whole lot more than just a hapless little cute thing ... but I digress.  ;D

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Writing. Theatre/acting. Cooking. Asian culture (watashi wa nihongo no gakusei desu). Music (big fan of Frank Zappa and Steely Dan). Online communities. Exploring funky alternative urban culture. Road trips.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: See everything under "what turns my crank."  ;)

Gender: Biologically female. Psychologically a bit on the "butch" side.

Sexual orientation: Leaning hard towards the queer end of the Kinsey scale.

Allergies: PABA sunscreen.

Anything else you'd like to mention: It is interesting to be a geezer in any number of fandoms, online communities, and pastimes where the median age is a good couple of decades younger than my current age (53). But then, I somehow have never conformed to norms of "age-appropriate" activities, no more than I've ever conformed to norms of "gender-appropriate" activities. It's not like I've set out to be a rebel; I just follow my nose, and then look up and realize "oops, I seem to be violating norms again. Oh well ..."  ;D

Sweet or Sour: How about "umami"?  8)

I think it’s my turn?

What's your name?:  If I tell you, I’d have to kidnap you.  Doesn't matter what you call me, I usually answer "Hmmm?"

Cash, check, or plastic?:  I’d like all of the above please.  And a lot of them as well.

Place of residence?:  I'm an ex-military brat.  Which means moving is in my genes.  The answer you get today might not be the answer you get tomorrow.

Any Pets?: Sure you don't mean any 'pests'?  There are two cats who think that they own me.  Well, I do have to admit that they have me pretty well trained.  They yowl, I come running.

The one thing you like most:  Freedom.

The one thing you dislike most: Pokemon.  Ever seen a 50 year old man in Walmart wearing a Pikachu shirt and yelling out “Pika, Pika, Pika….chu!”?  *shudders*  I have. 

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: All of it.  That’s one thing, isn’t it?

Other anime you enjoy: Cowboy Bebop, Gunsmith Cats, Akira, Battle Angel, Ghost in the Shell, Macross, Patlabor.  The list could go on and on.

Thing you hate about anime: A lot of the fans.  I enjoy anime, I like it but I also have another life!

Interests and hobbies: Writing, drawing, painting, listening to music, reading, working on websites, horseback riding, fishing, cooking.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be:
I’d probably be more into website design. Hmm.  Maybe even a social life?

Gender: Female…I think?  Well, I was when I last checked.

Sexual orientation: Bi-sexual leaning towards straight.

Allergies: Pennicillin, Codiene, Morphene (it’s hell when you’re in pain!), bees, olives (oh the lack on pizzas!) and onions (This is lucky.  It’s poison for cats! And mine try to steal my food.)

Anything else you'd like to mention: Not really. 

Sweet or Sour: Sweet and sour.  Only way to go.  Fits my personality too.
