Welcome to an expanded edition of “5 Questions”. I’ve fallen behind and I can’t get up. No, that’s not what I was going to say. I have acquired a large backlog of questions and it’s time now to play catch up. So instead of only 5, I’m tackling 10, because I can and that’s how I roll. So enough of the chit chat. Let’s do this…

Do you have any addictions?

Nothing too dramatic or telling. My addictions the computer, good food, Diet Dew and that damn cat of mine. Sexy booty too, but we’re not going to talk about that here.

What is your favorite urban legend?

That would be Floyd. He’s not just an annoying guy who asks for cigarettes and get arrested for trespassing in Laurinburg. What I hear is that he’s actually a trained assassin and used to be a bodyguard for Idi Amin. He also once won the Hawaiian Limbo World Championship and can sing opera. It’s true. I saw it in a dream. Does that count as an urban legend? Well, if not Floyd, then “Butt Naked Man” would be the next in line. Every trucker knows of this mythical legend. And if they don’t, their wives and girlfriends most definitely do.

Thoughts on President Trump feeding the Clemson Championship football team hamburgers & pizza?

I think it was great. The players loved it and it’s actual food that they can and would eat. A formal dinner and they would have just picked at their food and then after leaving the White House, would have taken their bus immediately to the nearest drive-thru and fast food restaurant. This way, they actually got to eat real food, had a great time and got a story they can tell for the rest of their lives.

What are the most unusual albums in your collection?

Probably “In A Metal Mood”, a heavy metal / rock album by Pat Boone. Pat does covers of songs by Alice Cooper (No More Mister Nice Guy), Metallica (Enter Sandman), Guns & Roses (Sweet Child Of Mine) and many other, but does them in Pat Boone style. It’s actually far better than it sounds and a fun listen.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever found / bought at a yard sale or flea market?

I’ve found plenty of albums, books, toys, etc, but the best thing I think was a set of throwing stars and a Sai. I was only twelve or thirteen years old and the guy shouldn’t have sold them to me, but I think I paid like maybe a dollar and got four throwing stars, a case to hold them in and an old metal and beaten up Sai. I didn’t know what it was called then, but I’d seen them in the old Kung Fu movies and thought it was way cool. I don’t know what happened to the Sai over the years, but still have the throwing stars. They’re still cool.

Best thing about your hometown?

The location, roughly an hour to two hours from the beach, the mountains, Charlotte, Raleigh, Wilmington, Florence, etc. And the people. There are some major ass-clowns here of course, but for the most part, the majority of people here are pretty decent and I like ’em.

Worst thing about your hometown?

The drugs, the crime, the lack of respect and education among the young people, the crooked politicians that have run this town via the “good old boy Network” for so long and the lack of decent jobs, with everyone either being retired or being on government aid.

Do you see social media as a good thing or bad thing?

It’s a mixture of both. Good because it provides opportunities that one would never have otherwise to meet new people and try new things. Bad because it has killed human interaction and no one knows how to socialize or talk face to face anymore and have real interactions.

Do animals have souls?

Yes…

Sex before marriage – yes or no?

As in right before the wedding? Sure, but make sure you take a shower afterwards before heading to the Chapel so you don’t reek of sweat and ass as you say your vows.

And there you go. I’m through for now. My thanks for reading. Any questions, comments or thoughts, give me a shout. Until the next time, take care my friends. Have a great one.
