A: Nope, no crickets in my area. We do have an active sawmill and trains that run all night though. You get used to the noise over time and I tend to miss it when it is gone. I love the sound of a train horn off in the distance.

Q: When you go out of town/on vacation what is the thing you look forward to most upon return?

A: I'm looking at a Cut stone Mud-Flap Girl my friend made for me, when he had access to a high-pressure water cutter. It is black with silvery flecks, weighs about half a pound, the dimensions... about six inches by four inches by three quarter inches thick.

Q: With Iodized Table Salt, Sea Salt, Kosher Salt, Kosher Sea Salt, coarsely ground, finely ground... Which salt do you use most in the kitchen.

A: Never. I'm basically a yeti or perhaps a wookie. No amount of waxing anywhere will be of any use.

Q: What is something from your childhood that you've saved and is open for the world to see? (Relatively, that is. i.e. not packed away in a box someplace. Maybe on a desk or shelf)

A. Photos on nightstands and books in bookshelves. I still have many of the books I read growing up and have now passed them down to Chloe. We have six bookshelves in the house. One in the master bedroom, one in Chloe's. Three in the computer room and a big one downstairs near the couches. I also have to Japanese wooden dolls that my father gave me when I was about seven. He brought them back from one of his many trips to Japan. They used to live on my childhood desk and they are now on my grown up desk.

Q. Repeating Sord's question because I can't think of anything and it's a good one. "What is something from your childhood that you've saved and is open for the world to see? (Relatively, that is. i.e. not packed away in a box someplace. Maybe on a desk or shelf)"

A: I still consider myself a big kid, so I will limit the things around me to things I had 25 years ago. I still have the original Slinky and Duncan Butterfly Yo-Yo I had when I was in Grade School. They are indeed chilling on a shelf. The Yo-Yo needs a new string and I need to dust them both off. But they be out in the open.

Q: To the writers and artists out there.

What are some of the things you do/use to tackle writers-block/art-block?

A. Six years later. STILL BLOCKED so I have no idea.

Q. Do you think this forum will come back to life again or has social media just killed it forever?

A: I think forums like this will be dead for a while but a few things this forum provides that social media never can.
1) True community
2) Focused conversation
3) A sense of privacy
I am not sure we will see this forum come back to life soon however and we might not be the we that see it.

Q: Why does it take so long for things to come back into style after they go out of style?

A. Because the generation that saw their parents enjoying it (which makes it instantly not cool) must give birth so the next generation can "discover the new thing" and think they are awesome for bringing back retro shit.

Q. I'm going to singlehandedly bring this forum back to life. Wait. That's not a question. Ok so. What is the thing you dislike most about social media in its current form?

A: Mob mentality. Echo chambers have always been a thing but now with everything being public and available to the world they feel a lot more dug in as every view point will have countless people supporting it. I don't care about that on a personal level - let's all make fun of the guy that says Muslims want the American flag banned - but it has seeped heavily into society, pop culture, and politics.

To be fair in regards to politics, these lines were already starting to be drawn before social media was a big thing. Yes there was always Republican and Democrat but it seems like it wasn't until the early 2000s that party lines became soooo delineated. But social media exacerbates the issue. Previously, voting on bills against your party but to try and do right really only carried the risk of getting some phone calls to your office and maybe making voters that watch CSPAN or keep more than the Comics/Sports sections of their newspapers get upset. Now information disseminates so quickly and with such bias behind it that most politicians aren't going to risk going against their party.

Q: What are THREE things you like most about social media in its current form?

A. Guuuhhh. Three? God dammit. Ok. Fine. 1.) Ease of use. It's super easy to toss stuff up onto social media. It doesn't need to be coaxed or formatted. It's fairly plug and play and an easy way to show pictures of Chloe to the whole family, many of whom are far enough away that an airplane is required for a visit, without having to send mass spammy emails or leave it up to mom zerox them and send them out with snail-mail letters. 2.) Audible notifications when someone posts something or wants to talk. DING FRIES ARE DONE! I mean, mom posted a picture of the fries she just finished cooking and wants you to like it. DO IT OR SHE'LL CALL YOU AND ASK Y U NO LIKE HER PICTURE!!1!!! 3.) Easy enough to understand that even my parents can use it. My dad doesn't have any social media accounts out of principle or whatever, but my mom took to it easily and this is a woman who has trouble with attaching a photo to an email.

Q. What do YOU like about social media in its current form? (I'm such a lazy questioner!)
