Getting to Know Me... Co-Host: Jeremy Hawkins

Okay I want to say "Hello" I have been a ghost lurking in the shadows of the Challenge, so I thought to get to know me better by the question you all had a hand in writing. I have been dealing with some "life" issues and sometimes that gets the better of all of us. I thought I might share a photo with my good friend, him and I talk all the time. So on with the show and tell... if you have more questions please ask...

Jeremy [Retro]
AtoZ Challenge Co-Host
Oh No, Let's Go... Crazy

"What rock star would you be?" (The Warrior Muse)
I would be an Alice Cooper type, singing like Cheap Trick meets Rob Zombie with Rush playing background.

"Favorite childhood memory" (Tina)
Meeting Spanky McFarland from The Little Rascals... or meeting Batman at a convenient store he was signing autographs to about 1000 kids.... the good ol' days.

"Would you rather have your own personal sailing ship or spaceship? What would you name your ship?" (L.G. Keltner)
Spaceship... U.S.S. Something... I want to really see what is out there.

"Which is your favorite fictional character and why?" (Mayflow3r)
Oz from the Wizard of Oz... he stood for what we should all stand for, but hidden behind a large curtain.

"Name a movie you watched that exceeded your expectations." (Nicole)
The Avengers... I was able to loose myself for 2hours and 5 minutes.

"Do you know how to 'Gangnam Style?'" (Nicole)
I am still trying to learn the "Macarena" so no and no!

"What is the most unusual thing you have ever given as a gift?" (Matt Conlon)
On my first date with my wife, I gave her a baby pumpkin... she knew then I was the one.

"What makes you cry? (Emotional reasons. Onions don't count.)" (Matt Conlon)
Lately everything from the government to gun violence to being jobless...

"Where do you go to "Get away from it all"?" (Matt Conlon)
Score music, I don't get away too much... I would never find my way back.

"If you could sing any song with the artist who wrote/performed it, what would it be and with whom?" (Tracy Bermeo-A2Z Mommy)
"Love Me" with Elvis... I sang it once at a convention around 30 people who spoke no English, it was the worst/best thing ever.

Thank you for making it to the bottom, if you would like please check out my t-shirt store at "Neatorama"... coming soon some of my newest designs and guess what they are?

Singing with Elvis is tricky these days, I believe he lives on the moon.

A baby pumpkin? Crap, wish I'd known that sooner.
I like your rock band.
And Avengers exceeded my expectations as well.
You rock, Jeremy!

A baby pumpkin? What an odd idea.

Nice to meet you.


JoJo said...

Great to meet you! I agree, everything our govt. does makes me cry. And ill too!

nice to 'meet' you! off to check out the store :) Can I just ask - is it possible to change my sign up in the Linky list to a different blog address - I'm 310- daily dodo but I'd like to do the challenge this year on a different blog - can I change or do I need to re-sign up?

D.G. Hudson said...

I'm still wondering at the significance of giving a 'baby pumpkin'. Is there a message in there somewhere?

You're going to turn it into a fancy sports car? Or did she like Smashing Pumpkins?

Nice to learn more about you! I'll just be lurking at the Challenge this year.

I am new to this blogging and found this excellent. I hope to finish the A to Z. I can only but try,

Sometimes we all need to lurk a bit. Just ask my blog- I've been in the shadows of it since January (if not before). The Challenge may be a shock to both of our systems, but I'm gearing up and preppring my posts. BTW- my question was: What is your favorite ice cream? Not sure where the singing/singer question came from....

How old are you in that picture? It's adorable!
I can attest to the fact that Jeremy is an amazing friend, multi-talented, and just plain fun to "hang out with". I can't wait for my "hippie-chicks" t-shirt to arrive.
AND he's being way too modest in answering these questions and telling you about himself. He built this blog. He makes all the banners and badges and art. He has a book called "Retro-Zombie: Art and Words" for sale on Amazon...

Just thought I'd add that...cuz I'm kinda a braggy "sister" so I can ;-)

Michelle Wallace said...

A duet with The King himself? Great choice!
Score music? I remember once before, you mentioned having a vast collection of score music...
Cute pic!

I would love to meet Batman! That's a great memory:) Nice to get to know you better, Jeremy!

J.L. Campbell said...

Wish, I could get away too, Jeremy, but like you, I'm afraid I'd be to enthralled to come back to the ordinary stuff.

DL Hammons said...

Spanky McFarland....really?? So cool!! :)

Shannon Lawrence said...

You'll have to track Elvis's whereabouts using the tabloids if you want to sing with him. ;-p

A baby pumpkin, cute!

Andrea said...

Hmmm...the Avengers! Am trying to talk my couch bound (for the day) 15 year old son to watch a movie with me, but he has seen that one...gotta save it for my own sick day I guess! Hope things are getting better!

Gangnam style is very like the macarena only you don't have to learn spanish or turn around as much :)

Looking forward to April 1st :)
