The Monster That Challenged The World

I haven't done a meme in a while, so here's a typically chatty one from Four for Friday, with answers off the top of my head:

Q1: How has the advent of the Internet changed the way you get your daily news?
I can sure find out a lot more about comics, movies, and music than I ever could before in the paper world; you can google even the most obscure topic and there's somebody who has built a shrine to it.

Q2: When you were younger, what were some things you dreamed about doing, and that you still think are possible to do today, but that you just haven't gotten around to doing or experiencing yet?
Directing a movie and writing a published novel or a comic book.

Q3: If you were forced to live on a deserted island for one year, what five things--aside from specific items of clothing--that you'd choose to bring?
Neil Stephenson's new trilogy (cheating and counting it as one), a propane grill, a toothbrush, a ream of paper, and a box of felt-tipped pens.

Q4: Did any notable or high-profile person's death in 2004 have a dramatic or long-lasting affect on you? (Here's a short list of some of the more notable people who died in 2004: Jack Paar, Marge Schott, Sir Peter Ustinov, Alistair Cooke, Tug McGraw, Pat Tillman, Estee Lauder, Alan King, David Dellinger, Sam Dash, Tony Randall, President Ronald Reagan, Ray Charles, Marlon Brando, Isabel Sanford, Rick James, Fay Wray, Julia Child, Geoffrey Beene, Red Adair, Richard Avedon, Janet Leigh, Rodney Dangerfield, Ken Caminiti, Christopher Reeve, Pierre Salinger, Yasser Arafat, Susan Sontag, Reggie White, Jerry Orbach, Johnny Ramone.)
Pat Tillman's because it was such a waste, and Johnny Ramone because it reminds me how long ago high school was.

Give me a yell at
