where were you born?
frankfurt, germany. in an army hospital.
do you like dolphins or kittens better?
kittens, even though they make me sneeze.
or steady rock?
when i first wake up, i begin to rock...steady, but then i'm steady rockin' all night long.
pirates or cowboys?
you might check this out for yourselves, but i heard from a pretty reliable source that pirates spend their workdays passing syphilis around to each other like a bottle of cheap rot gut; so, naturally, i like cowboys. plus, they have spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle.
cake or ice cream?
red velvet or chocolate cake, but only because i see no pie
option. if the judges will include pie on the ballot, i would vote for it. preferably, pecan or sweet potato.
tell us about your first kiss
you can read about that on my site
do you like your fans?
let me tell you a story. the other day, it was terrible. work was hard. indeed, life was hard. i get home and sitting there in the vestibule is one of those giant clear balloons with a teddy bear inside. the damned thing was holding a rose in one paw and a felt-covered heart in the other. it was from one of my fans; i felt better instantly. they are the best. they keep me going. word.

i would just break it down like smoove b
who's your fave disney villain?

if you had to be one of the coreys for a day, which one would you be and why?
few people know that lucas
was actually a bio-pic based loosely on my life. even fewer know that i was a technical advisor on the set and spent many hours coaching the young master haim. he is actually a very lonely man despite his outward jocularity. therefore, i would choose to live 24 glorious hours in the shoes of corey feldman. ideally, it would be during the filming of goonies
and on a day that they were shooting the sloth/chunk dungeon scene. that way, i could sneak into martha plimpton's trailer and coyly ask her those two magic questions--do you like pina coladas? gettin' caught in the rain?
biggest pet peeve?
people who are compulsively late.
desert island disc?
the cure- staring at the sea
if macaulay AND kieran culkin were both drowning but you could only save one of them, who would you save and why?
i would save kieran, because when he got mauled by that cougar
, it spoke to something deep within me. it was like he was getting mauled for all of us, like, for our sins. after i pulled kieran to safety, we would stick around to watch macaulay flail about helplessly and succumb to the cold and unforgiving waters, then we'd laugh.
if you couldn't make your living as a librarian, what would you be instead?
i would be a ballboy for the knicks
: the hours
