Secret Identities – Luke_Cage

 

 

I ask fwooshmembers questions.

 

They answer them.

 

Luke_Cage    " I’ll show you ‘cute‘"

Where do you live?

Quiet nabe in Brooklyn. Staying with my girl for a bit. Trying to get a new place.

Where do you work?


I’m a mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper…nah, grunt at an insurance company


Can you describe work?

I sit at a desk and spend various amounts of time blogging, fwooshing,  and listening to music!


Do you treat each customer with love and respect?

I feel for quite a few of them. They need to go into it with the mindset that insurance companies know their insureds are at fault most of the time, it’s just a matter of settling. The trick is not to lowball yourself. Which unfortunately alot of people do.

Who is in you family?

My daughter is my most precious family member. My ex-wife and I are pretty civil. Both parents are gone though.

Where do you fwoosh from? like what computer?

Equal parts home and work. But I NEVER try to steal company time. 

What does your girlfriend think of your toy collection?


She thinks it’s "cute" and actually purchased all of Series 8 for me. Then I was all like: I’ll show you "cute" and…well now we live together.

How did you find the fwoosh?


A very nice NJ Fwoosher who’s name escapes me at the moment but he was pretty cool. I was getting series 7 at the Newport KB Toys and he was on line and said: "Do you need Hawkeye? I said yeah. He said: "Here man, I already have one. If you wanna find the older stuff you should go to www.fwooshnet.com There are a lot of cool traders and collectors on there."-I feel terrible for not remembering his name but I don’t think he posts like he used to.

Do you customize?

Yeah but I’ve been half-assing it like I do with my stand up comedy. I need to be a whole ass.

Do you cook?

I am the best cook I know.

What is in your collection?

EVERYTHING! I’m a Star Wars dork. I have ML’s from 1-15. Select DC Direct (any Supes or Bats I think are cool). I want all the new DC figs though.

How can you tell if someone is a scalper?

They have a scent that I can pick up that smells like a combination of Mountain Dew, perpetual loneliness and salami.

What would you do to a scalper if you were in the same room as them?

Read my adventures posted on the Fwoosh. I’ve been to the seamiest toy dens and fought all types of scalpers. My favorite one is the time when I opened a Scarlet Witch and I closed my eyes and all the scalpers in the toy aisle faces melted like soft serve ice cream.

Where do you vacation? Where would you like to vacation?
 
I’d like to go to Antigua again. My mom is from there and I haven’t been there in 20 years!

What other sites do you visit?

I don’t Fwoosh anywhere else. You can catch something.

What do you spend your money?

I love toys.

What are some quality of life predictions?

I am probably the most environmentally unsound person I know. My quality of life is probably below government standards. I drink alot of scotch. I eat food that I shouldn’t and I could stand to lose a couple hundred pounds…but I recycle.

Why so much love for Luke Cage?

I love frickin’ tiaras! I just always thought he was cool and I was a Heroes For Hire Fan when I was growing up. I was really psyched when I saw ML Iron Fist because I knew Cage was coming!

Do you like the new avengers or
you only like the Luke cage appearances?

Nah, I like them as a whole…I’m a Sentry fan. I think he’s AWESOME!!!

What type of music do you enjoy?

Everything except Country. I have over 3000 songs in my Zen fall different types like Dave Brubeck, The Rolling Stones, Hendrix(people sleep on Band Of Gypsies), The Zombies, Poison, De La Soul, Common.

What are your future plans?

To become a successful stand up comedian

Who are some of your favorite comedians?

George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Robert Schimel, Paul Mooney, Chris Rock & Lynne Koplitz(A lovely person and funny as hell. Chelsea "I Sleep With The Head of E! Programming"Handler gets so much more props and she isn’t as hot or funny…see?)
Plug…sue me.

 Are you a Dave Chapelle fan? What is his next move?

I love Dave. Met him, he’s funny. His next move is to get back on TV, which I think should be soon, his "suspension" is just about over.

Do you do amateur shows?

Yes, I’ve worked for everything from money to chicken wings. I just want to get up there and have people laugh.

Describe your laugh.

It’s a cackle. I’ve been trying to get the whole Snidely Whiplash handle bar moustache going. I just think moustache twisting is the coolest.

Thanks Luke!
