50 Questions:

(This stupid thing was sent to me on MySpace. I'm gonna do it. Try and stop me!)

1. What is your name?
Doc Hammer. I was Eric Hammer for a while. In fact, that is my real name. Ya know, the one that is on my birth certificate. I used "Eric" for all my other crap that I did... Like the bands I have been in (or been), or for when I used to carve frames, or art direct a magazine... Shit like that. But In the grand spirit of drastic change, I am trying "Doc" on for size. I like the way it fits. I have a theory that you are only as cool as your list of nicknamed friends. So, you need a "Doc", or at least a "Smitty" in your life to really be cool. Let me be your "Doc".

2. What color underwear are you wearing now?
Black. They are Calvin Klein Trunks. I used to be all into boxer-briefs for their much appreciated support of my pendulous reproductive organs. But after discovering the "Trunk", I made the switch (change people... embrace it). The super-great thing about 'em is that they look like swim-trunks from 1935. They make me look like an emaciated Lloyd Bridges. And yes, I find that event desirable.

3. What are you listening to right now?
Placebo... Some song from "Sleeping With Ghosts" I think, not quite sure. It's an i-pod on shuffle.

4. What are the last 2 digits of your phone number?
71

5. What was the last thing you ate?
I had some Tai curry with fake (Tofu) duck last night. It was pretty good, but it was served on this huge plate. I was concerned that the open distribution of the food on the plate would make it get cold too fast. Why I have to make every experience in my life a new arena for anxiety and potential failure is unknown.

6. If you were a crayon what color would you be?
I'm a fucking chunk of wax... Consciousness would be unavailable to me. And let's say (for arguments sake) that I was given the "spark of life", I believe my only thought would be "Stop rubbing my head on that paper! It shaves my very scalp from me!"

7. How is the weather right now?
Yeah... fine.

8. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
Steph. A sitter who is booked to pose for me.

9. The first thing you notice about the opposite/same(if your gay) sex?
Carriage. Their overall appearance and the outline the create. How they hold themselves, their posture... shit like that. Then I guess I notice what the "thing" is. You know, the hairstyle choice, what kind of clothes the decided to wear that day. Then I end up on the head... And see if it is "paintable". It takes me a while to get to the secondary sexual characteristics when I first notice a person. Unless they have a remarkable and properly displayed set  of mammary glands. What? Like you never figured out what my "thing" is... Man, cut me some slack.

10. Favorite Food?
30 year old Gouda cheese. Cave aged. (This is not a joke. I would never hit "cheese" as a punch-line. That little "go-to" joke is as tired Rip Van Winkle.)

11. Favorite Drink?
Coffee... There is no contest on this one. And as for "soft drink"? I go Moxie. Yes, it tastes like medicine, I am well aware of that. But I'm telling you, it's so bad... it is good. You gotta try it. Just remember what coffee or wine tasted like to your adolescent palate. You can mature into Moxie. You just got to want it.

12. Favorite Alcoholic Drink?
Not a drinker... So I'm gonna take a chunk out of question 11 and go with Kalua. Or I could hit you with the drink I just made up... The Moxie Madman: A jigger of Moxie, one ounce of vodka, and a half packet of red Jello. Shake and serve over ice. garnish with a novelty pencil eraser of a monster's head.

13. Favorite place to shop?
Art stores... Come on.

14. Hair color:
Black and white. Or more like blond and Black. Nobody is gonna believe me here, but I still feel I have to explain why my hair is how it is. My hair grows in two colors. I believe it's a pigmentation problem or a birthmark or something. But my hair is naturally like this... Kinda. Because my eyebrows are black, I used to dye my whole head that color. Also, I used to enjoy looking like Dracula for some asinine reason. So, when my hair started to grow out, the blond started coming in. It made me look like I was balding or like my hair was floating on my head. The upkeep was an insane task I could no longer take. After an awkward period I call my "hat days", my blond grew out enough to no longer look ridiculous. And with the old black dye on the ends, and a natural streak in the font, I kinda liked it. So my hair now is me just creating a more "clean" version of a grow-out accident. As for the cut: I just go to Tiffany (Yes, I have a "Tiffany" cut my hair... She is way cooler than the name implies) and tell her "Sexy... Let's make it sexy."

15. Eye Color:
Brown. Not a big deal.

16. Do you wear contacts?
No. My vision is fine.

17. Top or Bottom?
Is this a sex question? Wow, it got all racy on me. And right after a question about my vision. Not very well paced, is it? Okay... Um, whatever is comfortable for both parties involved and works with the "moment" is fine with me. Honestly... What kind of person has preferences in such instances? They should be happy that somebody wants to share their body with them, and not get all picky.

18. favorite month?
I have no preference. I like the word "August" though. I always felt that it should be in the fall... It has an Autumnal ring to it.

19. Favorite Fast Food?
I will not eat fast food. The shit is disgusting. I don't even like thinking about it.

20. Last Movie you Watched?
The Life Aquatic, on DVD. And yes, I watched all the special features.

21. Favorite Day of the Year?
Stop it. It's questions like this that make me lose my steam.

22. Are you too shy to ask someone out?
Completely... I am too shy to notice when I am being hit-on.

23. Summer or Winter?
Fall... It is the season of change.

24. Hugs or Kisses?
It's dependent on the situation. You know how some of your friends insist on getting all continental on you when the say "bye", and give you a kiss? Yeah, that one is kinda too intimate for me. So in the casual "exit-dance", I go with the hug.

25. Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla is kind of a gyp. It may be because it is usually presented as white, and it makes me think that whatever food it is flavoring is gonna be all bland. It lacks the "brown-gusto" that chocolate has. So I go with chocolate most of the time. But sometimes I get stuck with vanilla ice-cream at some party, and ya know... It's not bad. I might say "Hey, I should buy this someday, it has a refreshing cleanliness to it." Do I? No... I get chocolate again.

26. Do you want your friends to respond back?
To this? I don't think this has any questions that beg a response.

27. Who is most likely to respond?
People who have something they would like me to read.

28. Who is least likely to respond?
The lazy, the extra-busy, those without computers, the illiterate, arthritic people, lion tamers, the shamefull, the not-so-giving, ya know... that kind of thing.

29. What books are you reading?
I am trying to write Venture Brothers episodes. When I write, I don't like to read. I find that the language of a novel is almost infectious. I start seeing it creep into my writing. In an effort to be more me-centric and not get a head full of somebody's words... I try not to read novels when I am writing. I satiate the reading craving by either writing something that has no use (and that is where this very questionnaire comes in) or read dry-as-dirt books about painting/painters.

30. favorite TV Show?
Degrassi Jr. High (the Next Generation).

31. What's on your mouse pad?
Man, this must be an old questionnaire. Yet, I do use a mouse pad. I have a Mac laser mouse that doesn't track too well on some surfaces, so a mouse pad helps. My mouse pad is easily the ugliest, dirtiest, piece of shit that ever had the good fortune to be mass produced as a mouse pad. Black rubber with a sheet of vomit-green spandex glued to the top, and has cigarette ashes and oil paint ground into it. It came with a Radio Shack lap-top my dad got in like 1997. I love it.

32. Favorite board game?
All I do is paint and write... I try to fill the cracks with socializing. No real time for board games. But I will answer with "Pit". It came with an orange "front desk" bell.

33. What did you do last night?
I painted till like 2:00am then went back to my apartment. After a rousing episode of Degrassi Jr. High (the one where we find out Ellie is a "cutter". A classic!) I tried to sleep. The sleep thing became a futile waste of time when I got a good (this is relative) idea for a VB script. So, I got out of bed and wrote till like 5:00am.

34. Favorite Author?
I have no fucking clue... I love Balzac, Poe, Twain, Baudelaire (I know, more of a poet), Zola, J K Huysmans, Proust, the Goncourt brothers... You know the drill, 19th century stuff mainly. But I have also read every Raymond Chandler novel... So, I'm not a dogmatist.

35. Who inspires you?
People better than me at things I care deeply about. Nothing better than going to a museum and seeing a red-hot Rembrandt or Titian and feeling like a piece of shit. You just stand in the shadow of greatness and feel your knees buckle and your heart climbing up your trachea. I arrogantly feel that I alone understand what kind of oily miracle I stand before, and humbly give my choked-back tears as a sacrificial offering. I really should wear kneepads to museums. Ya know.. That's one of my biggest problems with a lot of contemporary art. When I stand before them I don't get feeling of looking into the eye's of god.

36. Butter, Plain or Salted popcorn?
Salted. I am thinking about that motor oil that they try to pass off as butter when you go to the movies when I say "Salted only".

37. Dogs or cats?
Whatever... I have a cat, Robespierre. Although that is a male name, it is a female cat. Almost everybody that has stepped foot into my apartment has had blood spill from the horrific blow of my cat's misguided protective impulses. She is not a bad cat. Far from it, really. She is the most beautiful calico I have ever seen, and sleeps in the bed with me, all cuddled up against my boney chest. She isn't one of those retched dismissive cats that live alongside of you. She lives "with" you. Sadly, she hates everybody but me. I guess it's not hate really, it's most probably fear.

38. Favorite Flower?
Tulip, primrose, lilly, and the oft maligned pansy. I have tattoos of all of them. I know what you are thinking: "Wow, tattoos of flowers... What a he-man!"

39. What do you say when you wake up in the A.M.?
"Why do we book voice recordings at 10:00? Everybody in the cast is a night person."


40. Do you still talk to your best friends from middle school?
Middle school was an awkward mess that my memory treats as a blurry vision of Colin McGratten punching the glasses off of Allen Snow's huge head. That's all I can remember. I think I blocked most of it out as if I were a victim of avuncular rape.

41. What's on your desk?
A G5 with a stack of external hard-drives (holding VB season one), two monitors (and for some strange reason, both of them have a dirty painting palette on top of them), the VB skull (a real human skull that I used for the VB title sequence and all of that crap), two spent packs of Winstons, a book of matches with a phone number written on it in sharpie (no name, and it looks my my handwriting... useless), an off-white pastel pencil, the worlds most gruesome mouse pad, and a black bakelite telephone from the 40s.

42. Rock Concert or symphony?
I don't go to "concerts"... I go to "shows", and if a friend of mine (or me) is playing, I go to "gigs".

43. Play or Opera?
Play. Nothing against operas. I simply can't afford them.

44. Have you ever fired a gun?
I have. No real story in that. I don't like guns... I don't like what they symbolize, I don't like the false sense of power they give people, and I am weary of those that like them.

45. Do you like to travel by plane?
No... I have Meniere's Disease. Go ahead and Google it if you give a shit. It's an inner ear problem, and it makes plane travel an extra-nightmare.

46. Right-handed or Left-handed?
Right handed.

47. Smooth or Chunky Peanut Butter?
I like that natural shit. You know, the kind that you have to stir because all of the oil has floated to the top.

48. How many pillows do you sleep with?
Two... I wake up with one.

49. City and State you were born?
Ledyard Connecticut.

50. Ever hitchhiked?
That is a strange ending question for this. It's kinda like "Okay, bye... hey, you ever hitchhiked?" Seems like a question that should have started this mundane MySpace missive (intentional alliteration, could you tell?). Oh, wait... No, I never hitchhiked.

was a trip to see you have meniere's disease as well, definitely a big fan and since i know how brutal this ill-fated disease can be thought i'd share in saying i feel your pain as to what a friggen nightmare it can be.

Recently found there are treatments and got on board with the gentamicin injections into my inner ear to help stop the vertigo. I was happy to find there are treatments, albeit risks of hearing loss and different vertigo for a few months are the trade off for getting rid of it lol.

good luck to you in your dealings with this magnificent bastard of a disease. hope you've found your way to put down that beast.

Nice to see someone actually answered the questions in a thought out, lengthy manner.
Most of the ones I read consist almost entirely of the phrase "idk".
Apparently a lot of people have no clue about themselves.

By the way, you're the first person besides myself that I've met who like natural peanut butter!

Hey! I've been watching The Venture Brothers for ages now, and I love it. Its so weird seeing your account here, and your questionaire. I guess I forgot that you are a real person and not JUST a name they slap on the credits. I feel like i'm in the presence of a cartooning god!

I have a question, did you give Pete White any other characteristics of yours, or is it just the New Wave hair?

I know I'm only like, two years behind the times, but Moxie reminds me of deep-fried Twizzlers dipped in coffee and cough syrup. o:

Fortunately, I think it's one of those.... sweet/unsweetened tea or grits... type things, except backwards. I'm pretty certain that I've never seen it sold in stores south of the Mason-Dixon line. Or maybe I just don't look hard enough. xD

35. Who inspires you?
People better than me at things I care deeply about. Nothing better than going to a museum and seeing a red-hot Rembrandt or Titian and feeling like a piece of shit. You just stand in the shadow of greatness and feel your knees buckle and your heart climbing up your trachea. I arrogantly feel that I alone understand what kind of oily miracle I stand before, and humbly give my choked-back tears as a sacrificial offering. I really should wear kneepads to museums. Ya know.. That's one of my biggest problems with a lot of contemporary art. When I stand before them I don't get feeling of looking into the eye's of god. - Doc

i know what he means, its true, ive seen a Rothko and Robert Motherwell and i was just in awe. these giant paintings, abstract and i just feel validated in my own shitty drawings because ever since i was a kid all i heard was "thats not a drawing! it doesnt look like anything" but then hear you have Kadinsky and his abstract expressionism and it's not meant to look like any recognizable object doesnt mean its not valid! see! i do like velasquez, rembrandt, zubaran, murillo and other baroque artists thats what i want to go to grad school and study in but still secretly i love the abstract stuff more than anything else. i just feel a strong connection to these paintings. I think these abstracts are such at a distance from paintings of religious figures or even stories or anything resembling recognizable images to show how disjointed this modern world is from any religion.

36. Butter, Plain or Salted popcorn?
i have no idea i tell other people to decide for me.

37. Dogs or cats?
i prefer dogs but i fall for cats as well. their so sweet and i like playing with them, even when they scratch their just playing, heh, kind of like people when you play too hard its just because your excited. but dogs you can treat like crap and they still adore you. i grew up next door to a family who had a really nice dog, and i vow to have a dog like that when im older and name him Tun tun 2 (pronoucned more like toon toon but in spanish)

38. Favorite Flower?
orchid, because orchid means penis. and i like both just fine.

39. What do you say when you wake up in the A.M.?
"jeez i woke up late, i guess im calling in sick" haha


40. Do you still talk to your best friends from middle school?
um...excuse me..but hell no! i didnt make friends until high school and even then i was a shy kid. thats just how i am and how i like it. i never wanted to have a lot of friends thats too much pressure to be nice and caring all the time. im sorry but sometimes im just selfish and i wanna stay at home with my cartoons and im just as happy reading in my chair with my lil fan on. then making dinner for one and staying up for adult swim. my guy and me are alike in that way, thats when my girl friends tell me "he's a loser and he doesnt care that much about you" truth is, if he called me everyday i wouldnt care about him as much. sure i love the guy, but c'mon everyone likes their time alone and their space, and me and him both like to be independent and we dig each other. for as dysfunctional as our relationship has been, 1 1/2yrs and we still like each other after all the bad shit thats happened im surprised. and yeah, the sex has only gotten better. hah. but i doubt anyone was wondering, i just wanted to say it.

41. What's on your desk?
my comp and monitor, photos with numbers on the back i was playing with order. i made this huge photo 12 x 18 print and then cut out squares and i liked the lil squares more than the original photo so i wanted to go into photoshop and cut the exact same square and place it in the order but i keep forgetting too. i think ive got bills thrown on top too,

42. Rock Concert or symphony?
shows, hell yes. i wish i went to more! but i dont drive! yeah i live in l.a. and i dont drive, its crazy. i dont mind the bus. but id go to at least 3 shows a week or more if i had a car. i have too many friends in bands or rent a space to put on other shows. and i love Tom Brosseau who is playing the Troubadour on the 16th...i love that man! he sings and i turn to mush.

43. Play or Opera?
play. Eqqus is still my favorite play..well..modern play.

44. Have you ever fired a gun?
no..im kind of weirded out that my guy digs hunting and wants a gun. i know he was in the army but still...im not really for hunting, but i wouldnt wanna go. i might shoot him! take that for taking me out to dinner that one time! haha

45. Do you like to travel by plane?
never been on a plane

46. Right-handed or Left-handed?
Right handed.

47. Smooth or Chunky Peanut Butter?

Cheese = teh yuck. What the hell is Moxie? :? Coffee is also not to be endured.
I did wonder about your hair. You don't seem the kind of person to spend time bleaching it with the consistency required to keep your roots so glowingly blond. :>
Degrassi?? Good lord, why?
What I like about contemporary art is the breaking of boundaries which I feel very heavily and constrictingly when I view classical pieces (some of which are beautiful and some of which are down right ugly). With contemporary art, I'm inspired to try something new or look at things radically differently. I like that. :)
I have some gnarly vertigo too which my doctor once told me was due to dehydration but even after drinking tons of water it came back. It really sucks when I get it, but I don't have any of those other symptoms, so I guess I just have vertigo like some other people just have migraines.
I usually hate those stupid MySpace questionnaires (every underage user posts them it seems which is good b/c then I can see just how underage they are) but this was a fun read, mostly b/c I don't think anyone ever takes the trouble to answer these as thoughtfully as you have.

Hahahah. You like degrassi!? hah.
Man, I got WAY addicted to that show when I discovered it earlier in the summer. I like, watched every single freaking episode.

Hah. That was unexpected.

oh yeah I forgot to say, I saw that picture of your hair. Mines exactly like yours except....backwards(?). My blonde is on the top, and the black is underneath. Just thought I'd share with you heh heh.

you know something. I really like your personality. You really....I don't know....I'm not too good with words, I haven't lived in this country long enough to know the entire english language that I can say something suave and impress you...but you're sort of intimidating. And I really like it. I really love your use of words. Just...you go into every detail about certain things...and the right things. And I tried that Moxie Madman thing. I actually came back to your page to tell you this ^^;;
But I couldn't resist, I had to see what it was like. I don't know if thats weird or anything. I have no comment about it though lol. Its...different. Something that...you...I don't know.
Anyway. I like filling these things out..so...you mind if I take it from you?
Oh, by the way, where are my manners? My name is Ella. A pleasure to have found you ^_^

By the way...is myspace.com as great as people say it is?

You actually tried the Moxie Madman? Fact: I made that up on the spot. I have no idea what it would taste like. It may even be an explosive or otherwise dangerous mixture. Your bravery should not go unrewarded. So... How was it? I'm guessing it would be nauseatingly sweet, what with the Jello. Here is my guess as to what the Moxie Madman tasted like: Cough Syrup.

MySpace is neither great, nor horrid. It is one more place where people can play make-believe. They get to post what they consider to be their best pictures, display their favorite words, and list all the right bands. It's a great big lie. But a fun place to watch the human parade. I have found a few good friends on MySpace... But for the most part, it's a bunch of dicks. Like High School, or life.

I am the same way about who inspires me; the reason I got to where I am now is being in competition with another girl who just graduated this year; her stuff blew me away and I have always been trying to match up to her level. The masters too, inspire me.

It's funny that you're the voice of Dr. girlfriend. (hah she's my favorate character on the venture bros.) Must be a fun character to act :D She's so manly yet not at the same time.

As for books.. try kurt vonnegut, or read 'enders shadow' ..both are good reads.

My favorate place to shop are artstores as well :D

I love to write for Dr. Girlfriend... But, I hate to do her voice. So, I like making her talk, I just hate making her talk... Wait, that makes no sense. Nevermind.

Your hair grows naturally like that? Man, it looks fantastic. I'm crazy jealous. I'm naturally dark-haired and my hair splinters at the sight of bleach. Ahh. Again: crazy jealous.

I'm terrified of that faux duck stuff. I think it's a part of Asian life to have parents force-feed that stuff. Have you ever had an entire meal like that before? There are places that'll serve a fucking feast of just random tofu-made meats fashioned to look like the real thing... You can still tell it's tofu but you can also kind of taste the meat. Eh. It's weird. Maybe it's a Chinese thing. You should try it though... It's an experience.

More people should answer these journal questionnaires like you do. Not just the usual "OMGG!!1 FSCKNO!!!`" or "OMGG!!1 FSCKYEA!".

Don't be jealous of my hair. When I was in elementary school, kids called my discoloration a "fag patch". Okay, fine... I was a skinny little runt that dressed in my older sister's hand-me-downs, but that is no excuse.
-------------------------
I have been to places like that. I live like three blocks from China Town, and discovered these restaurants a few years ago. It is such a treat to be able to look at a menu and think "I can eat anything on this." I just have a hard time getting any of my friends to go with me.

Oh to have a white streak in the front instead of in the back of my hair and slightly to the left of center. When I let it grow out or cease dying over it no one says "Hey, what an awesome bit of genetic abnormality you have there! Quite stylish!" No, all I get is "Hey, there's a little white in your hair, did you know?"

now to jump tracks completely: Your cat sounds delightful. Unfortunately, all cats hate me. And though Moxie DOES taste like medicine, I have yet to really decide whether I like it or not.

(seriously) Great episode. Teaching all Canadian teenage faux-punk rockers out there that there's more to life than tardy bells and an alcoholic mother.

And one would expect nothing less than such behavior from a cat named Robespierre.

Absolutely stelar episode. You get to see at least three of Ellie's Hotly Topical outfits. I do believe that one of them includes a pair of socks as a garment to be worn on the arms. Very stylish, and don't try to deny it. That episode also includes Ellie's "cutting kit". Who likes a Canadian art director's idea of a teen girl's love of organization more than me? Nobody!

I should never have named my cat that. It's like she became the "terror" she is, just to live up to the name. I should have named her Captain Cuddles.

Just as long as you didn't name it Bizmark, lest the neighbors (and their cats) get angry. :giggle:

And a compass truly is a very inventive way to "cut". Most of us just used nail files when we were fifteen. And the stripey socks? Classic! Everyone should own a pair. The new Catholic Girls' school mandatory uniforms across America, I tell you!
