Music you listen to: whatever gets me through the day. i recently compiled my 100 favorite songs of the decade, which you can find here--

When you’re not busy with work, what do you do in your free time? Read, go to gigs, watch movies-- which all STILL count as work in a weird sort of way.

If you were to choose a different job, what would it be? Be an architect. I have an unexplainable love for buildings and cities.

If you can have any super power, what would it be? Telekinesis. That would kick so much ass, and I'd even be able to make myself fly.

Where do you find inspiration for your creations? Everything from real events to other works of art. Most of my characters are inspired by people I either find interesting or hate, though.

Most inspiring statement/moment (heard/said/read)? something i now base my every decision on: "I wish Quark Henares would refrain from selling out again, because if he doesn't he can be one of the important ones." - Alexis Tioseco
