Five Questions

This is the seventh 5Q interview for Seal Club, featuring
Khaled Abou Alfa of Broken Kode.

  1. You find a magic talking walrus. It grants you two wishes with the stipulation that one gives you something and the other takes something away. What do you tell the walrus?

    I love this question, but I'm going to cheat a bit with my reply. The thing I'd like it to give me is the power to control time. I don't have enough of it. What I'd like the cute little magic walrus to take away would be world hunger. If it's something that's personal to me then probably my excess body fat.

  2. How do you relax?

    Since I don't watch TV, relaxing involves a nice cup of coffee and sketching/doodling my next project.

  3. Puppies or kittens?

    Puppies without a doubt. Hell it's got to be dogs over cats. Where's the loyalty in a cat? Where's the love of a cat? I'll tell you where, somewhere else.

  4. It's the future. All international, corporate and personal conflicts are fought in giant mechs (think Robot Jox). Can you describe your next battle?

    I get into Spindler which is a cross between a mechanical lizard and a chainsaw. Spindler whispers to me strategies and methods for breaking the opponent's supports, I listen intently. This is a very important battle. The outcome determines the sanity of millions of people around the globe. We're not fighting for money, we're not fighting for land. We're fighting for the chance to rid the world of all those no-talent, no-soul, wino, bungholes who refuse to stop releasing crap 'pop music' based on boy bands and girl groups.

    Like I said, it's a very important battle. One I don't aim to loose.

  5. What are your three favourite cartoons?

    Robotech, Thundercats and Batman: The Animated series (the first one with Paul Dini et al from the early/mid 90s).

Pimp two websites:

  • Solution Watch - Bryan is a machine that does not sleep. He writes excellent reviews about all sorts of things like 5 seconds after they're released.
  • James Jean - easily one of the most talented artists in the world today.
