Magazine:

Time for another installment of 20 Questions, this time with member Brad Storch.

1. How long have you been watching "The Simpsons"?

My older brother and I used to watch The Tracy Ulman show just for "the funny cartoons before and after commercials," I've been a fan ever since.

2. Who is your favorite Simpsons character?

I don't really have a favorite character, but I think Milhouse (when at his finest) is at the top of my list

3. What Simpsons character are you most like and why?

Leopold, because I have the same overpowering brow

4. Are your friends and family fans of the Simpsons?

Yes, love me, love the Simpsons

5. What is your favorite quote from a Simpsons episode?

"Aw Hell Diddly-Ding-Dong Crap!!!"

6. What types of Simpsons collectibles do you collect?

Just WoS, but I often receive various Simpsons merchandise as gifts

7. What item in your collection is your favorite?

Bumblebee Man. I still, to this day, can't believe there is a figure of Bumblebee Man

8. What is the most outrageous (or difficult) thing you have done to obtain a Simpsons collectible?

Three words: Pinpal Moe.... wait, that's only two words. I didn't realize how lucky I was to have my order go through until I went on the boards and saw all the people who had missed the very small window of opportunity.

9. What's the most you ever spent on a Simpsons collectible?

60 bucks for Main Street, I've never been forced to resort to the secondary market

10. What World of Springfield figure would you most like to see (that has not been announced)?

Leopold, Dr. Colossus, Very Tall Man (I can never pick just one)

11. Are you a completist? An opener or a MIMP collector? Why?

Opener all the way. Not opening toys goes against everything I believed in as a kid.

12. What are your favorite television shows (excluding the Simpsons)?

Adult Swim on Cartoon Network is great, especially Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab 2021, and Home Movies. I started watching King of the Hill in syndication and that show's hilarious too. My favorite non-cartoon is Pardon the Interruption.

13. What celebrity do you want to see guest star on the Simpsons?

Are you really considered a celebrity if you haven't been on the Simpsons yet? I love Will Ferrell, he'd probably be funny on the Simpsons.

14. How and when did you find the SCS site?

I used to check out Bill's old site before the message board existed. I started posting shortly after he started the board and have been lurking ever since.

15. In what ways do you think the hobby of collecting Simpsons has changed in the past few years?

It's a whole lot easier. Between short-packing and Toyfare shenanigans, in the beginning finding what you needed without overpaying was an adventure. Now it's as easy as walking into a Target or ordering from NewForce.

16. What was the first Simpsons item you ever bought?

I had a T-shirt with Bart surfing on it, why Bart was surfing I have no idea.

17. What is the one Simpsons item you want the most but do not have?

A Brad Goodman figure, all the stores always sold out before I got there. Actually, I think Brad got a bad rap, good episode and good figure. What was the question again? Oh, I've got everything I want until the next wave comes out.

18. What else do you collect?

After WoS, I can't afford to collect anything else (nor do I have any room)

19. Who influenced you the most from the show (be it character, writer, actor, etc.)?

As much as I enjoy and love the show, I don't think I can say that any member of the crew has individually influenced my life in any significant way.

20. Anything you would like to add?

Please don't judge me by my number of posts. Love your local lurkers.
