Magazine:

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

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

I know I must've seen some of the early shorts when I was very little but the first Simpsons episode I ever remember watching was "Bart the Daredevil" while visiting Switzerland.

2. Who is your favorite Simpsons character?

Homer. There are a whole host of secondary characters whom I love too but Homer is full of laughs every episode and its fascinating to see his stupidity progress as the series continues.

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

Somewhere between Professor Frink and Homer. It's a strange combination caused by my computer geekiness and my stupid sense of humor.

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

Yes, for the most part. Both my brothers love and so does my dad. My mom claims to hate it but laughs every time she sees it.

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

"Fame was like a drug to me-but what was even more like a drug was the drugs"-Homer or "Oh a sarcasm detector: no that's a reeeaaall useful invention"

6. What types of Simpsons collectibles do you collect?

Everything. I especially like promotional items and foreign stuff. I'm currently very into any CC Lemon items.

7. What item in your collection is your favorite?

Tough Question. Probably my CC Lemon lunchbox or CC lemon bottle collection: actually, any of my CC Lemon stuff. It's so cool.

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

I'm lucky in that I've never really had a terrible time getting any of my collectibles. I research online finding places to get the hard to find items and got all the WOS figures retail.

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

$170 on my Animated Animations Power Picture.

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

I'd kill for the Mmmyess Guy!

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

I was a double collector for a while (one set MIMP and the other loose) but it became too hard and now I am going to sell my MIMP collection. I realized I wasn't into this line for the money so why not play with the gosh darned things?

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

Futurama is actually my favorite show otherwise. I also feel the need to latch onto it more and more now that it appears it's in trouble. I also like The Family Guy, Six Feet Under, Boston Public, The Practice, The Sopranos, Sex and the City etc.

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

I would love to see Dave Letterman guest star. Leno, who IMO is the most unfunny guy on earth got on so why not the comic Genius, Dave?

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

I've been here since the 1st day of Bill's Collecting Simpsons! Message Board. I started posting about 2 weeks into it and haven't stopped since even after the move.

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

Well obviously there's more to collect! There was a great lag in merchandise after 1990s huge success here in the states but now Simpsons toys seem to have become mainstream huge again-and its great for we the collectors-not so great for our wallets.

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

I bought a Dandee Homer bendable at an antique mall.

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

I would love the Simpsons Chess Set and all the other pewter items, especially the Homerisms Statues and Diorama.

18. What else do you collect?

Nothing. I used to collect coke stuff but lost interest. I don't see myself losing interest in this anytime soon.

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

Conan O'Brien has about the same sense of humor I have and it showed in his episodes-he didn't really influence me, we're just about the same.

20. Anything you would like to add?

I answered 20 questions and all I got was a lousy custom title.
