Guest Blogger: Kevin

It is my pleasure to present a blogger that is very close to my heart. (He's my boyfriend. You can say "Aw." It's okay.)

His blog, World Between the Lines, is so much fun to read! He just finished a project where he reviewed every song from his favorite band and is about to begin a whole new theme to his blog! Go and check it out! 

Kevin was kind enough to agree to be this week's guest post! And to make it more fun, he invited me to guest post on his blog today too! So, read this post first and then go and read mine!

1. Tell us a little bit about you and your blog.

Art, music, opinions, whatever. That’s the simple answer to what my blog is about. For the past five months I spent most of my time writing song reviews, with only a bit here and there that was actually about my life. But, I’m working on changing that around and making my blog more personal. And just what am I? First, I’m an artistic kind of guy. I love to draw, color, animate, design, paint, film, write, and do just about all things creative. Art has been one of the few things that keep me from going berserk. And one of the other things is my love for all things nerdy.

2. What is your favorite book?

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. That was too easy! Maybe I shouldn’t use Harry Potter… hmm.. either The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne or Animal Farm by George Orwell would be next. Ah, screw it, yes, Harry Potter. I’ve been hooked on these books since I was a kid, I practically grew up with Harry. The second one is my favorite mostly because I love the mystery to it. It irresistibly reminds me of the TV. show, “Cold Case” – except the writing is much better. Rowling is a genius.

3. What makes you a nerd?

Read my blog. No seriously, if you do you’ll see just how nerdy I can be. I wrote a review for each and every song from the albums of my favorite band, a band that has a concept dealing with spaceships, cyborgs, tyrants and rebels, a Jesus figure, psychos, and aliens.

Aside from that, I practically live and breathe the things I like. I can tell you obscure details as well as quote lines from Star Wars and Harry Potter. I read Wookieepedia – the official Star Wars Wiki. I have Star Wars related toys on full display on my dresser in my room. I quote lines from Red vs. Blue. I quote Disney movies and I blast Disney music in my car while speeding down the freeway, and simultaneously sing along. I have accounts on forums dedicated to different video games. I re-play Pokemon at least twice a year. I’ve played various Legend of Zelda video games to the point I know them in and out. I sometimes think about who used to live in Snowpeak Ruins from one of those games. I used to be a moderator for an art gallery dedicated to the Zelda games. And I used to run a Zelda website until I realized I didn’t know anything about web design. Need more?

4. You have 3 hours to live. What do you do?

Spend them with my family, friends, and my girlfriend, whatever we wanted. And call up those loved ones who aren’t with me and spend the final moments in the company of them all.

5. Describe the perfect sandwich!

I’m the kind of person that loves to stuff his sandwiches with plenty of things and doesn’t care how many calories he’s added. The best sandwich I’ve ever eaten: Roast beef, ham, bacon and turkey on 9-grain wheat bread, with pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayonnaise, extra honey mustard, lettuce, tomato, pickles, jalapenos, some Tabasco sauce, and lots of pepper. *mouth waters*

6. What would be your perfect job?

I’d love to be working as an all-things type of artist, taking on freelance projects and commissions for designing, illustrating, animating. Just anything that allows me to explore my creativity while having a decent pay.

7. What is the most important thing in your life?

Just knowing that I’m not alone in being scared or worried about what life is going to throw at me once I get out of college. That, and knowing that I’m not alone period.

8. Would you rather fight a hundred two year olds or a hundred Chihuahuas?

Neither sound good, but I think I’d go with Chihuahuas. Much as I love my niece and nephews, screaming two year olds annoy me to a ridiculous end, and I’d probably be subdued by them. Every Chihuahua I know tries to act all tough, but they’re just little punks that run away. I’d go with Chihuahuas.

Thanks so much for guest posting for me Kevin! 

Don't forget to go and read my post on Kevin's blog!

Funny. You'd probably get along great with my Hubby. He's the biggest nerd I've ever met.

Lauren said...

Aww... There, I said it :p

Penny Lane said...

I think the Scarlet Letter is severely underrated. It was a great book, but there is none quite like George Orwell. He is a genius.

Rachel said...

AWW Kate, this+your post on his blog is really adorable. Just sayin. I am a fan :)

And also....I'm subscribed via Google reader and the accent meme thing freaked me out because you sound a lot like me! Not exactly the same, but really similar. Oh gosh, it was so weird. I've GOT to do that now! I'm just so tempted to talk in a wacky accent instead of doing it for reals, so it's really hard. Haha!

And thanks for the well-wishes with my talk!! It turned out great :) I was happy! I actually love speaking in church....I'm a weirdo. Haha!

Jess said...

Aww... that is so cute!!! I love that you both did blogs for each other blog!

Sandra said...

Going to check out Kevin! He's cuuuute! And I'm with him on the last question: two 100 chiuhahas at me instead of 2 year olds. Two year olds can be vicious!

Kevin said...

Penny, I couldn't agree more. The Scarlet Letter is horribly underrated. It's one of the few books I was assigned in high school that I actually enjoy re-reading.
