Which comic book character would you like to see on the silver screen? Who would you cast to play the role?

I want to SEE, I mean physically see, JARVIS. Not the old butler man. I mean the AI in Ironman made into an android. And Paul Bettany can get all badass for it. I know it kinda encroaches on Visions territory but come on tell me it wouldnt be badass and you'd be lying. 

Also I want to see, Antman and Wasp from the Avengers. My tentative fancasting is Patrick Wilson and Michaela Conlin. 

I have tons of other fancasts but those are the ones I see as most fitting and most do-able considering what's been done already. 

AND OH GOD. REBOOT DAREDEVIL WITH MISHA COLLINS! PLEASE PLEASE!

What's the most memorable piece of advice your father has shared with you?

I haven't spoken to my father in a long time. In our last conversation his advice to me was that my anger would push people away. This comes from someone who would be horrible, sarcastic, irritable, unpredictable and patronising for almost my whole life when he wasn't being physically abusive to my brothers. None of us speak to him any more.

What's your favorite line from a song, and why?

"So many bright lights to cast a shadow, but can I speak?" - Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance. 

Regardless of the light you let shine from your own soul, the minute you step into the presence of someone whose light is brighter, your colors start to fade....you become a shadow. We shadows have to fight to be seen, or heard.

Which comic book character would you like to see on the silver screen? Who would you cast to play the role?

Almost no one is going to know about this because it's FANTASTICALLY old but I'd really like to see Fantomah brought back to life. I wish I could remember who on deviant art had done this really great reimagining of it, and I think it'd be FANTASTIC!

In terms of casting...hmm, why can I not think of anyone suitable???

Anyone have any suggestions?

I know it says she was blonde in teh Wiki page, but it also says she was an Egyptian Priestess...so I'd kind of rather cast someone who actually looks like they could be from Egypt.

Фраза моего отца: " Некоторые скажут тебе:" Учись доверять людям." Я же говорю тебе:" Не доверяй никому, кроме тех кто дал тебе жизнь, потому что все кто имеет хоть какие-то чувства к тебе, кроме тех чья кровь течет в твоих жилах, всегда способны тебя предать""

Есть еще одна аксиома ,которую я сама вывела и некоторых советов отца:
Никогда и ни перед кем не показывай своих слез .Хотя слезы - это самое искреннее что у нас есть, слезы - это слабость. А если люди узнают твою слабость, они будут на нее давить, и в конце концов сломают тебя как дорогую фарфоровую куклу.

I normally don't answer these, but in honour of father's day, I will, and also because the most memorable advice he has given me is hilarious (second only to his road safety advice - "Make sure you cross the road next to someone fat. The car will bounce off them." THANKS DAD).

"Don't date men. Men are bastards. I know because I'm a bastard."

Writer's Block: See you on the other side

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?


In a strange way, I feel that I have a vague sense of what it is like.

I used to have an intense longing to just be dead, or at least the expectation that I would be dead in a short about of years.

I've finally grown to the point where I don't feel the expectation of it, I think I might actually be afraid to die now, and it's not because I have a great love of my life that I want to live for, or children that would need me or even that my life is a wonderful piece of work, but simply because I have a hard time letting go of everything around me.

It seems so very tempting, being offered to know what it would be like. It's not something I would want to just to blunder into. Much less feel the need to know just because I want to see who was "right" about it either.
I actually feel that I would turn it down, I have no need to know until I actually die. I have my hopes, like everyone else, but is it fair to do that to myself? pin all my hopes on this ideal that I built for myself, when it could be very well not at all what i'm expecting?

Maybe death is so freeing to the soul because there is no more expecting, no more wondering, no placing beliefs on a prefect ideal we are simply free of all of what we love to place on ourselves.

in the end, we will be better for it.

"One day, I won't be here. But I want you to know I love you"

"I love you too sweetheart"

"There's one thing I want you to know; a liar has to have a good memory"

"I only ever want you to do your best"

"It doesn't matter who they are, what their background is, if they're rich, poor, middle class or tyrants. I'll talk to them, and be polite" "Why?" "Because being nice never goes amiss. Being deceitful and dishonest and nasty, however, that'll land you in a lot of trouble. It doesn't matter if you're a saint, or a sinner, we all end up the same way. Six feet under, in a wooden box, hoping to get in the pearly gates"

"Never get too drunk, and be careful with your drink. You never know what bastard is going to think he's hilarious to see you puking your guts up, and... incoherent and stupid. Don't go near flowers... THAT comes from experiance"

"All I want you to do, is enjoy life. But promise me this, sweetheart, that you'll NEVER take drugs, or drink excessively. It'll ruin you"

"A good education, I want you to go to college and get your dreams. You don't have to if you don't want to. No matter what you do, I'll support you, even in the most difficult times. I'll always be there.  But you knew that, didn't you?"

"Hanging around in the wrong crowd will kill you, and you don't want to die young"

"The only man that'll ever love you, as much as I do, is me. Men can be bastards, be CAREFUL who you give your heart to, and how much"

"Your mother? She's my ball and chain, but the past... near 50 years...have been hard, and difficult, and lovely, and beautiful, sweetheart. True love does happen... It did to me, and it will to you... someday"

"I only ever want the best for my family, to give them the education I never had... I did it for all of your brothers and sisters, I did, I swear I did... and I'll do it for you. It'll be there"

"I love you too, sweetheart" -- The last thing my father said to me, two days before he died...

Однажды я не выполнил какую-то просьбу отца, хотя ему обещал!!! На что он мне просто ответил:"да всё нормально, ,в этот раз я тебя могу простить, но помни сын -ты мужчина, а значит должен отвечать за свои слова".
Это было уже давно, но эта фраза врезалась глубоко до подсознания, и поэтому почти всегда, когда о чём-то говорю или что-то обещаю, эти слова вспоминаются, поэтому не люблю говорить что-то просто так.
Спасибо, тебе, пап, за этот урок.

Translated literally, it would sound something like "Dominate the situation".
I don't like the sound of it, it's silly and - and pompous, makes me want to walk out on him every single time I hear it and do exactly the opposite. Which sucks, because actually it's a good advice, when I manage to follow it.
If only he didn't speak it like some "great truth"...

Writer's Block: Taking it on the road

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?

I've gone to Georgie a couple times, so I guess that's the longest. Takes about 10-12 hours driving from here. 

Once, it took us like 16 hours because the car broke down in like Kentucky. 

Most of the time I spent it listening to music. I can't really fall asleep in the car, so I'd mostly stay up. I'd watch the scenery, which usually isn't very entertaining, but still, better than staring inside the car. We tend to travel at night so we get to Georgia at some time in the morning. 

Also would get out whenever we made a pit stop, usually to stretch my legs, go to the washroom or to get something to snack on. 

Don't really mind the drive, suppose i'm used to it and because i'm not the one that has to drive. LOL.

про папу я всегда слышала одно..Рожков (иначе мамка его не называла)..был алкоголиком..ходил по бабам..и даже Шурик его уволил (Шурик..тот самый..из "Кавказской пленницы". Папка месяц как устроился водителем..возил Шурика..на киностудии..получил получку первую..и в аут..по пьяни)..еще был "достопочтимые" сюжеты про то, как папка намазывает гутталин на хлеб (выпаривается вакса..остается алкоголь..съедаешь кусок и в улет) ..выпивает мамкины духи "Ландыш серебристый"..про то, как на лавочке папка уснул и описался (а мамка шла с работы и ей сказали: "ВАШ МУЖ..НА ШТАНЫ ЕГО ПОСМОТРИТЕ!" Ну понятно..во сне страшном не привидится..такой вот был..негодяй..
и только..когда папки не стало..и мне жутко захотелось съездить на "годовщину" его смерти в Конево (Архангельская область)..я наконец-то услышала об отце нечто отличное от мамкиных злых слов..про Рожкова..про то, что храм выстроил своими руками и рубля не взял за работу..колодец срубил..много чего по дереву кому сделал..кому наличники резные на окошки..кому калитку..а еще был рыбаком хорошим..и слова плохого от него никто никогда не слышал..
Я вспомнила свое дерзкое письмо к нему в свои 17 лет..в нем я писала..что отец не тот, кто "родил" (словно он был виноват..что развелись..что терпения не хватило обоим..да виноват..конечно виноват!)..и просила..напиши мне письмо..ЕСЛИ ТЫ ЕСТЬ..если ты..не просто "квиточки о денежном переводе" (все, что асссоциировалось у меня с отцом)..И знаете..он написал..это было умное обстоятельное письмо..я очень жалею, что затеряла его..затерев до дыр..что меня одолел склероз и я не помню оттуда ни строчки..там не было советов отца как мне жить (какое он имел право МЕНЯ УЧИТЬ)..он просто писал..о чем-то из своей жизни..очень искренне..по-детски..что позволяло за окнами души алкоголика..увидеть свет..
А еще у него песня любимая была...! "На дальней станции сойду.."

what my father left me... never say goodbye, bye or anything like that. You have to say see you later.
saying goodbye puts pain inside the heart and by saying bye/goodbye, it's telling the person it's forever.

The Original's father doesn't have sound words of advice but he is the person who first introduced me to Earthbound.

He has a good taste in games. He is also good at cheering me up when I'm in a bad mood. The Original's mother says he's irresponsible but I see this as child-like innocence that I can use as a moral guideline for myself. She says he's in financial trouble but I see him as someone who I can relate to as a mostly unemployed person, and from what I've seen of people, its not true that better financial situation = better or happier life. The Original's mother certainly isn't an example of this. She also says he's ill too often, but he's always been ill all the time, its nothing new. I worry because he doesn't play computer games as much as he used to, which is my yardstick for a good life. I wish I saw him more than I do in general but he lives so damn far away.

Diggory's father taught him that level bosses are people too and he shouldn't be a bigoted ass-hat towards them. He also encouraged Diggory to study hard and he has a good book collection in the house.

One of the most significative things my father ever told me was: "Our greatest limit as human beings is that we can perceive life just in a linear way. We can't think of a life without time; but maybe we would be happier if we just thought of our existance as an immutable sum of stuff that just is, without a when. We wouldn' t be so scared of non-existance then".

It was nothing great or outstanding, just the simple "Be yourself, and don't let others pressure you into being something you're not" But to a little girl, it goes straight to the heart and influences her actions later in life. Now, whenever I think of changing myself to fit in, I think back on that advice and follow it. I know in the long run, being myself will ultimately work out better than being a brainless clone.

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?

This is absolutely bizzare... I was just playing an online game and I was talking with my friend in depth about what happened to me when I died... I've died 3 times in my life from overdosing on drugs (namely Heroin). The first time I had a profound experience and the others I recalled nothing at all. But the bizzare part was that I came on to livejournal to paste a copy of the transcript between me and my friend in the game I play so I would have a written copy of what happened and the first thing that popped up was your question, "If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?" So, I felt the need to answer. If you would like to read my experience I apologize as you will have to sift through my chatting but I will make it a public post (the game I play is called Vampire Wars and it is an online mud game that consists of all text so that is why there's so much crap to skim through but i'm sure you'll figure it out... the conversation is between me: Omnis and her: Andrraya). Hope this might help a little with your question. Feel free to email me at thisisjoelgrant@gmail.com or facebook me at grantronyx@gmail.com (where I will be more likely to see your message cuz I don't always check my e-mail). By the way, I do not use drugs anymore... I've been clean for a month and a half or so now... Yaay!

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?

Only if it wasn't terrible, for example everyone goes to hell or its equivalent. Then no, I wouldn't want to know. But if it's good or even just "we disappear forever and that's it" then I would want to know. Someone said that if we knew what happened and death was better than living, what would be the point of living? We'd just give up living. The thing is though, if I knew death was better than living, like paradise or even just no longer existing forever, I would be more inclined to live and not just give up. I'm not sure why exactly, but I guess because there's a safety net that way. It makes life less scary because even if bad things happen to you, it'll be ok in the end.  I'd be happier too because I have something to look forward to, I'd know for a fact that things will be ok in the end, but I still wouldn't rush towards it. I'd want to live out my life and let the end come on its own. Things would be better imo if I knew that even if I fuck up and don't have a great life, it wouldn't really matter because after dying thing's would be good.

If it were a situation where you have to do certain things or live a certain way in order for an afterlife to be good (heaven and hell scenario) then obviously I'd want to know, so I'd know what to do so that I don't end up in an eternal hell. Nobody wants to accidentally go to hell.

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?

No.

Because what good would it do me? ie/eg,
...if all the deads' minds and souls (and whatnot) are gobbled by Cthulhu, what good would that foreknowledge do? It would just depress everyone. (if anyone believed me)

...if all the dead go to a perfect paradise full of wine and harps and singing and dancing, that's another useless bit of foreknowledge - only this one would have people dying early to get there.

...if all the dead are promptly reincarnated, I don't think I'd want to know what I'd be reincarnated into. But this would be more because of Shroedinger's cat, than anything else...having seen my future form, wouldn't I be locked into it, no matter what else I do in this life?

Of course. I figure knowing would make the thought of death a little less scary and mysterious. Plus, the whole religious conflict surrounding the issue would be resolved. In addition, it would be kind of nice to know if certain people go to certain places..if you know what I mean?

Yes, I'd want to know. I don't support ignorance, especially of possibly-unpleasant things. I think it'd be best to know what lies ahead, like every human grows up knowing that they will get old and die. Knowing what comes after would just be the next step, and I don't see any reason for people to get upset about it.

If you could find out what happens after you die, would you want to know?

I feel sometimes that I do know, and that I hear about it often. I care for my mother who is 88 (I am 49) and I know that she thinks of heaven alot. Mom has Alzheimer's (she is in the moderate stages)and often she tells me she hears heavenly voices (music - singing) and that they sing of heaven. One day she told me that they were singing "Jesus is coming soon. Jesus is coming soon." I know these may just be the rantings of an old woman with Alzheimer's, or are they?
