10 Stupid Questions

Hey gang, Fridays are always an awkward day here at the monster; it's the day that I clean the house & try to wrap up whatever art projects I'm working on before the weekend, so my posting can be sparse, sometimes lazy, and at times, just plain ugly! So I've decided to try something new; I'm always interested in what people are into, and I thought it might be fun to make up a list of ten questions ala James Lipton of "Inside The Actor's Studio", and interview people that I find interesting.
So, today will be the first installment of what will be a weekly Friday feature known as "10 Stupid Questions", and my first interview victim is Reis O'Brien; CEO and high priest of the always entertaining "Geek Orthodox" nerd-blog! When I was just a wee lad flipping through the blogosphere at the local pharmacy, I would always look for the latest installment of "Geek Orthodox", and I said to myself; "one day, I wanna do that!" (But not the D&D stuff, cause I still wanna get laid) J/K Reis! And so, 3-D Monster was born! But enough about me; let's get to the interview!

1.) What do you do and why?
I'm a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. (That's great, but why?)

2.) What or who inspires you?
My wife, she's crazy awesome! (Good answer - that's what I would've said!)

3.) What's the best part of your day?
The part that involves coffee and blogging. (Straight trippin'!)

4.) What's the most bizarre thing you've ever experienced?
Larping at a Sci-Fi convention. (What the Hell is larping? Sounds wet & uncomfortable.)

5.) Who is one living person you would like to meet and why?
George Lucas, I have a lot of questions for him. (and I have a 2x4 w/ his name on it)

6.) What are your three favorite possessions?
Do my cats count? Because I love my cats somethin' fierce! If not my cats, then I'll say, my Ernie Chan signed Conan # 163, my vintage Star Wars figures and my iPhone. (very nice except for the cats. I'm allergic to cats.)

7.) What one superpower would you like to have?
The ability to learn anything super fast, almost instantly and never ever forget it. Read a kung-fu book in a few seconds and BAM! Kung-fu expert! (More than flying? Really?)

8.) When is the last time you got into a fistfight and why?
I've had a few close calls in the past few years (I don't take a lot of crap from people), but the last time I threw a punch had to be 10-12 years ago with this drunk dude who was beating up his girlfriend in a Waffle House parking lot. (You are a super-hero! Well played, sir!)

9.) What song gets you pumped today?
I'm really crazy about Wolfmother right now. (Wolfmother rocks! Reminds me of old Zep.)

10.) What's your worst habit?
Punching drunk guys. Kidding! Actually, I get a little crazy over collectibles sometimes, and buy way more than should. But only sometimes! I swear! (Amen brother - you're preaching to the choir!)

Great interview, and a really great guy! Thanks for answering all of my stupid questions, Reis; I'll see you around the blogosphere!
If any of you guys want to be interviewed on my blog, just answer the questions above, pick a favorite photo of yourself, give me a little info about you, provide a link to your web page/blog and email it to I'll let you know when it will be posted


  1. Damn! That's one handsome dude in that picture!

    Thanks for inviting me to be the inaugural victim for your new feature. This was crazy fun!

  2. Sure thing, Reis - thanks for being such a good sport!
