So, just yesterday you got a little insight into the blogging and reading questions I got asked (which you can check out here if you missed it). This is part 2 of the Blogiversary Q&A I announced last week. Have fun reading this once again ridiculously long post!
TV AND FILM
First TV show you remember watching? (Savannah @The Book Prophet)
That’s a tough one. It was definitely something animated. Maybe “Der kleine Maulwurf”, which is just translated to The Mole and is a Czech TV program from the 80s and 90s?
List your favourite and least favourite characters from your Top 3 TV shows! (Savannah @The Book Prophet)
Narrowing it down to three shows feels like torture already, so I am going to give you some of my favourite shows, but the top 5-10 are always changing … so this isn’t fair at all.
Sense8 – my favourite is probably our drama queen Lito and my least favourite is Whispers (who can go straight to hell)
Wynonna Earp – my favourite is the badass title character Wynonna herself (although Waverly was SUCH a close call for that spot) and my least favourite is probably … Willa?
Timeless – Lucy is my favourite on the time team and my least favourite is Nicholas Keynes because that entitled prick thinks he can change the world to his bigoted and outdated image.
What TV moment left you the most disappointed? (The Orang-utan Librarian)
The How I Met Your Mother finale … let’s just forget that ever happened.
What was the best TV finale you’ve ever seen? (The Orang-utan Librarian)
Wow, that’s a really tough one. I like things that are neatly tied up but still with an option for possible comebacks, if that makes any sense? I quite liked the ending of Charmed and Dawson’s Creek. That’s not to say that those were the absolute best TV has to offer, but it’s my kind of finale.
You often talk about TV shows you love (and that’s incredible), but… is there any TV show you really can’t stand? (Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Book)
This is a little difficult to answer, just because I don’t even think about shows that I might not like? If I think it’s not for me, I basically erase its existence from my brain. Sometimes friends can convince me to give something a try, other times I just ignore everyone and don’t watch it. It doesn’t mean the show is bad or that I can’t stand it. I personally didn’t enjoy Breaking Bad, so I didn’t even finish the first season and probably won’t return to it. That doesn’t mean it’s not a massive success that many people love or even that it isn’t good TV.
Kat, as the Queen of TV, recommend us some amazing shows! (Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much)
Easy: Sense8, Timeless, The Royals, Imposters, Wynonna Earp, The Good Place, Dynasty, Doctor Who, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, One Day at a Time … it’s probably best if you just browse through my #CurrentlyWatching posts haha
What TV show would you recommend to everyone? (Michelle @The Writing Hufflepuff)
I don’t believe that there is one show that fits all audiences, but if we are talking the readers on my blog, I’d say Younger! It’s about a 40-something woman who has to pretend to be in her twenties to make it in the publishing industry after she took off work for her family for too long. It’s so freaking brilliant and has already been confirmed for its 6th season. So, you get to binge quite a bit too!
If you HAD to choose one TV show to watch for the rest of your life, which one would you watch? (Michelle @The Writing Hufflepuff)
I know that back in the day I was so sure I’d say Doctor Who, but now … I don’t know. I don’t click with the newer episodes as much as I used to. I think I might go with Sense8 instead, just because it would always make me feel connected, emotional and still offer a ton of action.
A BIT OF EVERYTHING
If you could learn any three skills, and become a master at them in a month without much difficulty, which ones would you pick? (Rami @Rami Ungar the Writer)
Well, I’d love to be able to do EVERYTHING, but since I have to choose I want to be able to play the cello, learn how to surf and I’d like to design and tailor my own clothing.
When was the first moment you actually decided you wanted to become an artist? (Swinging on a Star)
Hmm … I don’t think it was an active decision. It’s always been a part of my life and I’ve been told that I was already very creative in kindergarten. So, I just indulge into that side of my personality more some times than others.
What is your opinion of a Korean band (namely BTS) becoming big in America? (Swinging on a Star)
I think it’s great! It broadens everyone’s horizon and gives an insight into Korean culture, as I tend to see people really digging deep into the background and lifestyle of the bands. I hope that the bands are also having fun while they are at it and just hope that the people who complain about their (poor) English understand that not everyone HAS to speak that language.
What is your favourite study subject? (Michael K)
Back in school I used to love English, Art and History, while at uni my favourite subject was usually Dramaturgy.
Do you have any other hobbies beside books & series/movies? (Michael K)
I’ve only just started showing some of my artwork on my blog, but drawing and painting has always been a hobby of mine. I also like to do yoga, but it’s been months since I’ve managed to go to class.
My grandma’s red wine cake!
Which piece of artwork (that you created) are you the most proud of? (Sophie @Sophie’s Corner)
I really don’t mean to put my work down by the next statement, but I am not necessarily proud about any of the things I drew. I like them, in some cases I like them a lot, but there was nothing too extraordinary among it yet that would make me proud. However, I do love the way I captured Nico Mirallegro’s facial impression in this one:
What’s the most fun trip you’ve ever been on? (The Orang-utan Librarian)
ALL OF VANCOUVER!!! I cannot get over the amount of stars I met and sets I visited.
Would you do bookstagram? Why or why not? (Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Book)
I don’t think so? I am just really not that great at taking pictures, light is always an issue and the quality of my photos is meh. Also, I like expressing myself more in words and I don’t like having to do everything on my phone.
One country you’d DREAM of visiting? One city in particular? (Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Book)
I’ve always, always wanted to see Tibet.
You’re doing amazing art on your instagram, would you ever think about posting it/talking about it more on your blog as well? (Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Book)
Sure. I don’t mind sharing my art on the blog as well, but counter question: how do you think I should incorporate it more? The only thing I can think of is a round up of what I drew for the monthly wrap up.
If you one day woke up and discovered you had superpowers what powers would you want and do you think you’d be a hero or a villain? (Beth @Reading Every Night)
I love this question so much! Many people have very intricate powers when they can wish for whatever they want, but all I will ever need as a superpower is teleportation (without restricting it to places that I have been to or seen before). And … I think I would be neither? I would keep it very much on the DL, but if I ever saw a kid hanging onto a balcony and in danger of falling, I’d obviously help. I just can’t see myself seeking out the dangerous situations and going out of my way to do heroic things .. maybe that is what makes me a villain though?
If your house were on fire and you could only save three things what would they be? (Beth @Reading Every Night)
I am guessing this is supposed to be answered in terms of sentimentality and not practicality? (cause then it’d be easy – wallet, phone and laptop) I think I’d save my High School yearbook from my exchange semester in the US. I have this wooden carved cassette that my grandpa made in which I store post cards and letters from friends, so that would obviously be saved. And lastly, the picture of my grandpa with me and my cousins.
Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life? (can be from a movie, book, TV show, anything) (Andie @Andrea’s Nirvana)
It’s very hard to remember boring characters and I want to answer this question, but I honestly cannot even think of someone.
Do you have a dream art project? So something you’ve wanted to work on for a really long time now? (Michelle @The Writing Hufflepuff)
I would really, really love to draw the entire cast of Arcadia, but I don’t even know where to begin. And I’d also like for it to not just be separate portraits but one, huge image and I am afraid of ruining something if I keep adding to one paper. Hope that made sense.
Who’s your favourite Hogwarts Mystery character? (Michelle @The Writing Hufflepuff)
This is one of the best questions. I know it might sound silly, but I love Barnaby Lee. The boy really isn’t the brightest bulb in the bunch, but he is TOO PURE AND THE MOST PRECIOUS BEAN EVER! I also quite like Bill and Penny though.
What are your hopes for Arcadia? (Marta @The Cursed Books)
My biggest hope is that I get to finish it. That would already be a huge accomplishment and I would very much like for it to maybe get traditionally published one day. That’s really a long shot though. I’d just be happy if a ton of people read it on wattpad and talked to me about it.
This is the end of Part 2 and I really hoped you enjoyed to get to know me better over the past days. Again, if you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to drop them in the comments section!!
