Sorry this is a day late. Yesterday defying science as well as logic Jose’s head fell off and he was unable to do a damn thing. But now I have my head back and I’m back in action, bring it on!
Zen Cookie has a dilemma
“Is there any point into me trying to break into the animation industry with all of the 2-D companies moving overseas, and 3-D companies being impossible to be hired onto without a 4-year animation school and most of those schools taking only 25 students a year? If this is futile.. what should I do with my Graphic Design/Multimedia degree?“
Sad to say it is rather futile. Now what to do with your degree… Jose suggests either (a) making the most bad ass expensive paper airplane ever or (b) framing it and hanging it in the bathroom. Both would make an old man smile ten miles wide.
Chris the Hat Farmer asks
“Who has my copy of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: Special Edition?” I’ve gotta know!”
Chris, you are in luck, your copy of Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas: Special Edition is not lost! Unfortunately you are. The good news is that your DVD is desperately searching for you. If you hold still for a few days it’ll find you.
Tricky Pants offer up some breakfastness
“do you prefer pancakes over waffles? if so, why? tell me your secret pancake recipe.”
Oh Ms. Pants, it’s obviously pancakes. Flapjacks in particular. I think they stack better as well as stay warmer longer. Jose also loves the way butter spreads on pancakes. Pancakes are also the food of the gods and Jose is often worshiped so why shouldn’t he eat as thus? If I gave you my secret pancake recipe then it wouldn’t be secret any more!
Of cource Timmy Dee had a lot to say about that last question
“What kind of question is that anyway? the flapjack is:
1. easier to make (never heard of a pancake iron)
2. easier to enjoy (don’t need to worry about those pesky dimples)
3. easier to get along with (waffles are pricks)”
I couldn’t've put it better my friend. Thanks for the assist.
Lil Brucey Hotwing asks
“What’s in the box?”
Gwyneth Paltrow’s head.
Dear Rad Jose,
Where do babies come from?
Wunderin’ in Washington
Well WiW, I get this question all the time and I never answer it. So I don’t know what makes you think that you’re so special.
Dear Dr. Jose,
I may be inheriting a Dodge Shadow. It being my first vehicle, I can look past the colour, size, power, and comfort issues, happy that it will just get me from point A to point B. I’m well aware, however, that members of the opposite sex may not quite see it that way. How do I make my new situation appealing to others, without resorting to dice in the mirror, or new rims? Medium pimpin’ if you will.
Your second biggest canuck fan,
First off you should ALWAYS be playing side one of Led Zeppelin IV in said vehicle. That one simple thing will help more than a new paint job in the eyes of the opposite sex. If there’s not already a racing stripe running down the side you should make one. Duct tape works very well for this. This next part may set you back a bit. Buy some static cling letters and spell out a nickname none of your friends call you in the backwindow. This’ll give you street cred and mystery. Lastly get a little Australian flag and put it on you antenna, just trust me on this one. In no time at all your “point A to point B” mobile will be making stops in everyport of call for the opposite sex.
SkaGirlie needs to know
“what does he see in her?”
Once at an X-Ray he saw a golden fork piercing her liver. That’s the short answer. The long answer is that he hopes one day to marry the golden fork, but will settle for the shell around it. It’s sad really.
Tricky Pants is back for more!
When are you coming up to Chicago again to hang out with T.P. & Co.?
I hope it’s very soon, but I cannot control the weather and the only way I go to Chicago anymore is by sail boat.
ZenCookie has more questions too!
“Okay, so we all know they stop selling the alcohol after 1 or 2 or whatever in the stores… but there is also the “you break it you bought it” policy. So….. what happens if you break a bottle of alcohol after they stop selling it? Can they ring it up?”
They’d probably charge you and not give you any of the booze. Knowing them they’d ring it up under “Damaged Goods” (this is also my nickname). If this should happen, pull out a straw and get as much as that floor vodka down your neck before they know what’s going on.
Jane, the Original Ms. Milkbags, along w/ Olympia Joshington want to know
why are you stopping ask rad jose? its truely badass.
Much like every good thing, it must end. But much like a cold sore it will always come back. “Ask Rad Jose” is a Feb thing and it shall return next year. Thank you for all your support over the last several days, and I hope to see you all again next year.
This month (and 2 days) was the somewhat triumphant return of the very popular and interesting “Ask Rad Jose” segment of my journal. So, in the tradition of Dr. Science, Dan Kennedy and Dylan Wissing i presented to you “Ask Rad Jose”! Seriously you could’ve asked me anything (not math) and i would attempt to answer it. For it is true: i have no shame! Just pose a question in the comments section and i will answer them to the best of my ability in my next “Ask Rad Jose” LJ entry, which will be next year… it’s done for now, get over it…. and get off my lawn!
