Anonymous said: are you invited to Keith's wedding? if so, can I be your date?
Honestly, I doubt it. Keith and I aren’t super close and I imagine his wedding would be on the smaller side (I’m assuming. Maybe I’m wrong.) If he invited me, it would be great, but I don’t expect that and I’m completely fine with that. Why do I feel like I’m being a little bitch as I type this? I don’t even like weddings! All that happiness in one confined space? Eugh! That said, Keith, I’ll for real be your best man. Or at least your pretty good man. And sure, you can be my date, provided that you’re not cr — wait, what am I saying? You’re a stranger on the Internet! What is wrong with me? Of COURSE you can be my date.
Anonymous said: what forums member would you most like to meet in person?
That’s a good question. Most of the people I’ve wanted to meet from the forums I’ve already met, thanks to the various live events that have occurred during my tenure. I will say this, and even though she isn’t on the forums much these days, Aunt Helen seems super rad (just based on internet talks with her) and is a published author, which means her lady coattails are ripe for the riding. (Just kidding.) Going the complete opposite direction, I kind of want to meet this WSEIII clown, but at a very safe distance. The guy scares the shit out of me, but that’s just because we’re different. Meeting him in person would probably put my prejudices to rest. And you, of course, author of this question.

I don’t think I was officially nominated for one yet. So I feel DEEPLY FUCKING DISAPPOINTED, THANKS FOR ASKING.
Just kidding, your support means the world to me.
dancingcabinet said: Since they were mentioned on the show, which Beatles song most reminds you of Keith and which one reminds you most of Chemda?
The Beatles song that reminds me most of Keith is “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Poison. The Beatles song that reminds me most of Chemda is the original score to the motion picture The Color Purple, by Quincy Jones. What I’m trying to say is, fuck the Beatles.
I dunno, probably something off Abbey Road for Keith and something from Revolver for Chemda.

Nope! Well, I don’t get paid, and I’m the one answering this question, so that’s the bottom line, friend-o. I have been paid for helping out at specific events or doing certain tasks, but as far as receiving a stipend or hourly pay, the answer is no. Luckily, I have another job, which is how I survive in this ridiculous, beautiful, asshole-ish, wonderful, piece of shit, gift from God city. But honestly, the experiences and connections are worth more than simple “money.” Not only did I get to meet an idol of mine in Scott Sigler, but I got to interview him on my own spin-off show. That’s very cool, and I wouldn’t trade any (well, most) of these experiences for the world. (I could part with Jeopardy and My Name Is Keith, I think.)
