I’d like to thank all the little people…..
It’s a time to be proud here at Load/Error. First, I reached the “1,000 hits” milestone. Next, I finally got my 10th follower, and now Ben, my awesome brother-in-law, creator of the mighty Views From the Sofa blog has put me up for a Liebster award. We all like a bit of recognition! Not bad to say the blog’s been public for just over a month!
First things first, you should go and check out Views From the Sofa. Ben puts a lot of time and effort into his posts, and covers everything from Friends to Independence Day. If you can watch it, he’s got it covered!
To qualify for this award, I have to answer some questions. Ben didn’t mention any lifelines, which is a shame, but I’ll give it a crack!
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Ghostbusters?
Ouch. I love the turtles, I really do. We’ve just been re-watching the 1987 cartoon and it’s brilliant. But NOTHING can beat my love for Ghostbusters. It’s a bit of a sore subject at the moment, but Stantz, Spengler, Venkman and Zeddemore are my heroes!
2. He-Man or Lion-O from Thundercats?
“Give me sight beyond sight!” – Has to be Lion-O. His hair is the coolest!
3. Cinema or Blu-Ray/DVD?
Blu-Ray wins this one. Cinema movies can be seen once, cost money, and you run the risk of other people ruining the experience. With films on Disk you can watch what you want, WHEN you want, in the comfort of your own home, and the contents of your fridge available on demand! I still have fond cinema memories, but for sheer ease of use, Disks win out!
4. Hot Drink on a Cold day or Cold Drink on a Hot Day?
Surely these are as useful as each other? If I had to pick, it’d be a hot drink on a cold day. You can do many things to cool down, but a hot Vimto on a freezing cold November evening is just BLISS!
5. Classic Video Games or New Generation?
Ooh! My specialist subject! I’m going to go with classic. Older games have a nostalgia about them, they’re simple and easy for anyone to pick up and play. Newer games are either massive, sprawling worlds or online battle arenas where everyone is better than you! I obviously still play modern games (Currently learning the ropes in Witcher 3) but classic wins out!
6. WWE Today or WWF Attitude Era?
My OTHER specialist subject. I’m a MASSIVE wrestling fan, expect an “unrelated” post to cover this sometime in the future. The Attitude Era has to win. Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Rock became superstars, you had the war with WCW, hardcore matches – it really was “must-see TV” back in the day. I still watch wrestling today, but it lacks the energy, the freedom and the storytelling of 1999’s Attitude Era!
7. Mad Max Gibson or Mad Max Hardy?
Mel Gibson. Just seems to portray the role better. Tom Hardy takes it a little too close to “Derranged” for my liking!
8. Batflex or BatBale?
I’m not the biggest fan of Superhero films. My ideal Batman is ADAM WEEEEST! But I’ll plump for Batflex. Everyone thought he was going to bomb in the Batsuit, but I thought it was a really strong performance!
9. Civil War – Are you Team Iron Man or Team Captain America?
Ermmm? One of those lifelines would have come in handy round about now. My gut says Iron Man. Because he has a cool suit which can soar through the sky. Cap has a shield. That’s about it!
10. Thor’s Hammer or Luke’s Lightsaber?
This is an easy one. Thor’s hammer is heavy and just not as nimble as Luke’s lightsaber. One swing and a miss with the hammer and you’re wide open to a counter-attack, wheras the lightsaber can be swung in several directions with a pleasant “whoosh”!
11. You have to take part in one – the Hunger Games or Battle Royale?
Hunger Games. The field of battle is so huge, I’d pick the best defensive spot, wait for the majority of the fight to be decided, and pick off the last few enemies at my leisure. Survival, baby!
Well, that was entertaining! S’pose I’ll be taking this!
And now I’d like to nominate a few bloggers to take the Liebster challenge!
