Ask Roger Anything and he’s likely to answer

Welcome, ladies and germs. We come once again to that ENORMOUSLY exciting and popular game show, Ask Roger Anything, in which YOU, yes you, get to ask Roger… wait, let me check the rules again…oh, yeah, ANYTHING. And, here’s the good part, for you: he HAS to answer, more or less, truthfully.

This is not to say that he might not find a way to obfuscate the issue, but that’s his JOB. YOURS is to try to take him out of his comfort zone. That potential for tension, perhaps utter embarrassment, is why the game has continued for so long.

Why, oh why, would he – oh, we started in third person, might as well stay there – intentionally put himself in that position?
1. It’s tradition.
2. It’s fun.
3. Because he can.
4. He’s totally run out of usable ideas for his blog.
The answer is: ALL OF THE ABOVE! Well, except for maybe 4, but “usable” is in the eye of the beholder.

Any questions asked will be answered in the next 30 days in this here blog. You can leave comments at the end of this post, or e-mail RogerOGreen [at] gmail [dot] com, or Facebook. He will use your name unless you ask him otherwise. Anonymous folks will get nothing but snark, he suggests. Carrier pigeon is NOT recommended form of communication, due to the high cost negotiated by the CPU, i.e., the Carrier Pigeons Union.

You can always tell that he writes these things late at night when he’s sleepy, because he’s starts to lose…

Oh, one more thing: a post he wrote a couple days ago came on with Comments Are Closed. He has NO idea how that happened, and it took him a while to figure out how to undo it. He NEVER closes comments; comments are the raison d’ĂȘtre for him blogging. If you see that again, please let him know at the address above. (Thanks to Carver and Uthaclena, who noted it last time.)

Sad news about the deaths of Fantagraphics co-publisher Kim Thompson, and Tony Soprano himself, James Gandolfini, both creative forces, and both only in their 50s.

  1. (1) Do you like sports other than baseball? Which ones?
    (2) What random fact are you most proud of that you could just recall it by choice?
    (3) Any opinion on new super hero movies vs. old super hero movies?
    (4) If you were a superhero, what would be your costume? Cape or no cape?

  2. Okay, I’ll play:
    1. Who (living or dead) has had the most influence on your life?
    2. If you could go back in time and have a conversation with someone, who would it be?
    My apologies if you’ve already answered these questions before!

    • Lisa- I don’t know if I have or not. But it doesn’t matter, because I’ll probably answer it differently next time anyway!

  3. What’s your favorite vegetable? Your preferred comfort food? Do you ever eat a bowl of cereal just because you want one? What is your junk food weakness–the one you cautiously indulge because it would be too easy to go overboard with it? Finally, what was your favorite, but now defunct, local restaurant?

  4. If you are flying to NY be aware, I was duped out of a $100.00 because me and my friend who was dieing of leukemia andonly had a few months to live,took me to the Macy parade that I wanted to go to for 35 yrs. We were 72 yrs old. He pretended to be a medical person trying to get to NJ and someone stole his wallet. We were sick when we found out he was just a scam Artis.
    My trip was sad to think we didn’t have a 100 to give and did without ourselves.
