Issac Asimov -- my personal hero and my favorite writer. I'm getting closer and closer to being a tenth finished with my goal of getting a copy of wach of the 515 books he wrote.
Bone -- one of my favorite comic books; the conscience of Pogo, the artistry of Cerebus, and the epic quality of The Lord of the Rings.
Comics, comics, comics! -- Oh, how I still love comics. From superheroes to epics, indies to a little Manga, I love the comics. And the strips, too.
Dinosaurs -- because, hey, they're awesome.
Harlan Ellison -- my other favorite writer and a huge influence on my snarkiness, my intellect, and my writing.
The Flash -- still my favorite superhero.
Glam Rock -- my single favorite kind of music; glam and anything that sounds glam, like Queen. From Bowie to T. Rex to the Sweet to Mott the Hoople to Slade to Cockney Rebel to Roxy Music to Wizzard to Alice Cooper to Hello to many, many others.
Hong Kong Cavaliers -- I want to be one so bad.
Ub Iwerks -- the man who drew Mickey Mouse and directed one of my favorite cartoons, The Skeleton Dance. And he helped start Disney, the company that essentially owns me.
Scarlett Johansson -- of course! That beautiful starlet! She's the ginchiest!
Kermit the Frog -- and all the rest of the Muppets!
Language -- one of my chief interests, especially how it changes over time and how few people in America seem to be able to learn their own.
Madness -- one of my all-time favorite bands; their music makes me smile. Hail Lord Suggs!
New Romantic/New Wave -- my second favorite subgenre of music. Adam Ant, Prince, the Human League, the Bangles, New Order... too many to get into.
Oz -- a place I still love to visit. 14 wonderful novels by L. Frank Baum; many more by many others.
Playboy -- my favorite magazine. I don't care if it's cliche or not. Still the best political reporting I see. And the naked women don't hurt.
Quotidian -- I just love that word. I also love the word Quixotic. And Querida; I especially love Querida. Lots of good words start with Q.
Robots -- because who doesn't love robots? Any and all robots, I love them: Cybermen, Daleks, B-9, Artoo Detoo, Rodney Copperbottom, Daneel Olivaw, Tik-Tok, Norby, Robbie, Gort, the Iron Giant, Mechagodzilla, Bender, K-9, Optimus Prime, Tom Servo, the Vision, the original Wonder Man, the original Human Torch, the Awesome Android, the Metal Men... almost any robot. Except for Twiki. I hate him.
Bedrich Smetana -- my favorite piece of Romantic era art music is Smetana's Ma Vlast, or My Country, which contains the beautiful "Moldau" and the majestic "Vysehrad."
Tarzan -- I still want to live like him, among the animals with the woman I love and no society for me to get pissed off at.
Uncle Scrooge McDuck -- a great character, a great comic book.
Vixen -- is she woman or animal? I don't know, but I'm going to name my daughter Vixen. Or Ayla. Or Pim.
Doctor Who -- continuing to delight me throughout my life. "Hmm? Doctor Who? What's he talking about?"
Xmas -- not a Christian, but I really do love Christmas. And yes, I love commercial, Elvis music, "Chipmunk Song," greeting cards, Santa with a Coca-Cola Xmas. I especially love hearing those morons prattle on about "You're x-ing out the Christ!" for their phony War on Christmas fears, while ignoring the historical fact that the Greek letter chiasmus (symbol X) was used in Ancient Rome as a symbol of Christ when they were meeting underground. So, actually, X is a Christian symbol. Learn your own history, Jesus Fan Club.
The Young Ones -- only one of the many, many British comedies I dearly love. I tend to follow Vyvyan Basterd's approach to problems: "This calls for a special blend of psychology and extreme violence."
Zappa -- for "Peaches en Regalia" alone, man.
Wow, there are so many other things I could name. Many, many things. This was fun!
