-Political leanings: Slightly left (I honestly don't know enough about the intricacies of politics to make a firm decision)

-Are you a vegetarian or vegan (or something else)?: Vegan (tolerantly so )

-What is the meaning behind your username?: It's an awesome instrumental-only metal band (except some recent songs with guest vocals that I'm not so pleased with)

-Have you ever met anyone famous?: Just bands: the members of Fear Factory, Ministry (Al Jourgensen a few times), Down (so half of Pantera ), System of a Down, Sepultura, Dog Fashion Disco (not so famous).

-Do you live with any companion animals?: 2 cats, one of which is a special needs kitty (my boyfriend calls him handi-kitty)

-Do you live with any companion humans?: My boyfriend

-Where is your favorite place that you have visited?: I've hardly done any travelling... I guess Mexico was my favourite.

-What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?: The peace that comes from knowing that my values now align with my actions

-With whom would you most love to have dinner?: Gene Baur

-Do you have any secret talents?: No, I don't think so.

-What dish/recipe can you make that knocks people's socks off?: I can finally make really good seitan, so I usually get the most compliments from meals that include it.

-What's your favorite restaurant?: My favourite used to be Red Lobster but I've hardly been to any vegetarian or vegan ones, so I don't a favourite right now.

-What's your biggest cooking/baking disaster?: At my old job, a cook who I was responsible for once left a lot of steak out on the counter for nearly a day, so a party of 100 went without their intended main course. I had to make pasta at the last minute so they were NOT too happy (although it's kind of funny now that I'm a vegan )

-What's the one food/product, that you'd love to "veg*nize"?: I've never had a lasagna that tastes anything like a remember it, and that used to be one of my favourite meals.. so I would love a vegan version.

Have fun.

Being a vegan, rescuing or caring for animals (I've raised a number of orphaned rats, rabbits, birds, cats, and a squirrel, and rescued a few stray cats as well), being in nature, and having a good human companion.

I've hardly travelled at all. I've never been anywhere in Canada outside of Ontario, but I've been to New York, Detroit, Florida and Texas, and into Mexico briefly. I would like going to other countries where the culture and landscape is much different, and that's why I liked Mexico the best.

I found it online while looking for an avatar. He doesn't have a name yet, so I'll let you choose one for him if you'd like.

Nope! I was arrested once when I had an argument with a girl who later decided to call the police and say that I pushed her, so I was charged with assault (I didn't actually touch her at all, but sometimes wish that I had given the time and money I had to spend on court).

I'm partial to dolphins because they are sexual deviants.

Wooded glen. Even better would be a cottage in a wooded area with a beach in front!

I love snow for the first month or so of winter, especially at night when there is no wind, just big flakes of snow falling. But I get sick of all the shovelling by the end of winter! And I don't get to go snowmobiling anymore.

Definitely fall, when the weather is cool and all the leaves are turning.

Nearly all of my shirts are band t-shirts or some type of graphic, and I used to have posters all over my apartment but got sick of putting them up every time I move, so now they are all stored!

I am very deprived when it comes to that. My favourite flavors are strawberry and one with a mix of chocolate, caramel and almonds or pecans (not sure of the names anymore), but I've only ever tried So Good ice cream and didn't really like it. I tried the Tofutti fudge bars and liked them, but can't find them at the store anymore. I need to buy an ice cream maker!

I have a ps3 but don't play online often, the last games I played were Fallout 3 and Fallout new vegas, GTA IV, Bioshock 2. And I was addicted to ModNation Racers for a while too. I haven't played the Facebook ones in a while because I got too hooked on them and it sucked up too much time! I played Frontierville for a while, Nightclub city, Happy pets, and a few other ones I can't think of.

The biggest one has to be smoking, but I only have 4 or 5 a day now (almost quit!). I also have a weakness for 80's movies and cartoons, NES and SNES games, and candy.

If someone made a movie about you, who would play Apocalytica?

Have you seen Apocalypto? What are your thoughts on it?

Have you heard Apocowlypso? What are your thoughts on them?

Do you like Shoenberg?

If you could steal someone else's voice, whose would it be?

How much can you bench press?

Hmm, that's a really tough question. Most of my favourite actors are men, but I like Jodi Foster and Julianne Moore so I guess one of them.

I really liked it, even though it was embellished and not historically accurate (films like that rarely are though). The locations and set design and the story sold it for me.

I've never heard of that! I heard the term apocowlypse during the mad cow disease scare though, is that what you're referring to?

I had to google that... hadn't heard of him. Apocalyptica was the first orchestral/instrumental band I started listening to, and remains one of the only. I first heard this cover and loved it. So, alas, I'm not that cultured when it comes to music. I prefer classic rock and metal.

Alissa from The Agonist, or Jewel (actually, her older music would qualify as one of my guilty pleasures.)

Yes, always! I love that show, it's the only tv drama that I never miss an episode of! I was kinda pissed at how season 5 ended though because I liked Lumen and it would have been neat to have them as a team for a while longer.

Very nice and down to earth. I remember Shavo, the bass player, the best. He was really flirty and clever.

Sorry I've been away at the vegetarian fair in Toronto the last two days.
Soo, to answer your questions:

I used to juice a lot, and it was usually a combo of carrots, kale, parsley, apple and pear. But now I'm too poor to do it anymore, so I eat my veggies whole. But I make a lot of smoothies that are usually a combo of banana, berries and almond milk.

I've been to two (Fresh and Booster Juice), but I've never ordered their juice, only smoothies.

Weeell, technically only one. But you could count the seconds, minutes, hours or days, or different combinations.
Quote:
Originally Posted by Snowcone View Post

I believe they all taste the same, but I find red or purple things usually taste better simply because of the colours... so I'll go with that.

Quote:

I would say yes. I think the whole 'jumping out of a window' thing was pretty cool; it wasn't effective at the time, but still cool that he would try it just to stall.

Quote:

Yes, I used to play with ninja turtle figures and some GI Joes. I have way more now because at one point I collected figures like movie maniacs (Leatherface, Freddy, Pinhead, etc). And I have a few Family Guy figures, rocky horror picture show, etc.

Bubbles! We used to go camping every long weekend until the 'party camp ground' we went to started having new rules that made it not so much fun anymore. There were usually glow sticks all over the place, so we would break them open and mix the liquid with soap to blow glowing bubbles. You can also blow smoke into them as you make them, then the colour is stronger and they look even cooler.
