Some Liebster Award Thing?

January 22, 2014

Deadlight put me on some Liebster hitlist the other day. They say it’s a way to get attention for little-seen blogs, but I think its true intent is to identify blogs for future culling. You can’t have millions of tiny little blogs using precious bandwidth and the like when said resources can be better used by the blogiarchy elite.

So if my blog and I mysteriously disappear one night, you know why. I was marked and subsequently eliminated.

That said, let’s play along with their sinister little game.

Somethingsomething blogs with fewer than 200 viewers get attention and pass on the infection to other blogs with fewer than 200 followers. I guess I have fewer than 200 followers. I have no idea how to find out how many followers I have, so I’ll just accept this proclamation about my follower status as true.

Once you get marked and infected, you gotta:

  1. Link back to the one who gave you the mark.
  2. Answer 11 questions by the marker that determine your threat level.
  3. Mark 11 other bloggers who meet the above requirements (<200 followers).
  4. Let the marker know you’ve accepted your fate by posting on their blog.
  5. Create 11 questions of your own with the intent of determining the threat level of anyone who becomes marked by you.

So here we go. My answers to Deadlight’s questions.

1. If you could fight crime (or reign terror) with any anime character, who would it be and why?

I’d team up with Squid Girl and raid every taco and donut joint in south Texas.

2. What is one trope in the story-telling medium (outside of anime) that drives you up the walls

That bit at the end of almost every romantic comedy or straight up romance movie where the two lovers have some inane falling out and the climax of the movie is them realizing they were idiots and should never have had their petty argument that led to the lame climax. Yeah, sure, have romantic plots and stuff. Just come up with a different form of conflict beyond “we might not end up together.” We know you’re gonna hook up, so do something else, peeps.

3. How easily are you frightened?

I usually do the frightening.

4. If, for an hour, you could manipulate electricity to your will, what the hell would you do?

Find Spider-Man and claim I’m the new version of Electro.

5. Cake or pie?


6. Pirates or ninjas?

Super spies

7. Are you athletic?

Athletic like Sammo Hung.

8. Mornin’ bird or night owl?

Night owls go to bed before me.

9. If you could befriend a supernatural entity, what/who would it be?

I’d like to have a pet Shoggoth.

10. What is the answer to life?


11. Who sucks the least? M Night. Shyamlan, Michael Bay or Zack Snyder? Or, if you’d prefer, who kicks the most ass? The Coen Brothers, David Fincher or Edgar Wright.

Sucks the least: Bay. He’s usually a deplorable asshole, but he’s deplorable in ways that make for interesting conversation. Shyamlan is just dull and childish for the most part. Snyder is as much of a fratboy thug as Bay, but he isn’t nearly as interesting.

Kicks the most ass: Wright? I look forward to his movies a bit more than the Coens’ or Fincher’s stuff. The Coens are usually good, but they don’t always make movies about things that click with me. Fincher’s probably the best of the bunch on a technical level, but I’ve only genuinely liked four of his nine theatrical releases (Seven, The Game, Fight Club, and Zodiac). All of Wright’s movies have worked for me to varying degrees, and I’m legitimately excited for his take on Ant Man. And Spaced rocks too.

So yeah, I honestly don’t read enough blogs to nominate 11 peeps. Most of the ones I do care about have already gotten marked, so if you wanna nominate yourself for culling, I’ll vouch for you. Then you can go ahead and answer the following 11 questions.

will reserve one of those spots for Updatedude if he wants to do this on his rarely-updated toy blog. And another for my buddy over at Martian Death Ray, who also rarely blogs.

1. What monster should replace zombies and sensitive vampires as the next big fad?

2. Aliens have come to Earth and have given you a chance to travel across time and space, but you’ll never be able to come back to Earth. Do you go?

3. Dog, cat, or some other weird pet that brands you as some freak show oddity in what few social circles you frequent?

4. What’s your dream car, you filthy bourgeois pig who only values material goods?

5. You can travel back in time and megaton punch one historical figure? Who feels your righteous fist?

6. if you were a die, what type would you be? d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, or one of those freak dice that are overpriced, never get used in real games, and only exist so dice fetishists can show them off to other gaming nerds?

7. We know you watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you sleazy brony/pegasister. So, which pony is your favorite?

8. A gun’s pointed at your head. You can’t make a snarky third-party choice without sleeping with the fishes. What will it be: French Fries or Tater Tots?

9. You’re a hero in ancient Greece. You’re inevitably gonna do something to piss off one of the gods. Which god’s wrath would you prefer to endure?

10. “Do you expect me to talk?” “No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to _____?”

11. You discover that your life is nothing but a Choose Your Own Adventure book. What do you think of the decisions this god-like reader has made for your existence?
