The Proust Questionnaire # 13 : Trent Reker


Our WebWorld; a lot of us are spending a couple of minutes or hours everyday checking our favourite websites or blogs but who are behind them ? Most part of the time we dont really know.
To find out what's going on behind the screen, i started a serie of portrait of the Men and Women who are making the blogosphere better, for this thirteenth Portrait, i asked my friend Trent Reker to go thru the Proust-Pivot-Lipton Questionnaire to let us know more about himself. Trent is the man behind the great Bikermetric blog and here are his answers.

Wow, frank. that's cool. okay. I apologize in advance for my answers because i'm sober. if i was drunk, they'd be much more amusing. Attached some stuff. use whatever you dig.
peace out, mister!

1. What is your favorite word? freedom.

2. What is your least favorite word? bureaucracy.

3. What turns you on? the look i get from the woman who inexplicably loves me when she's thinking about something kinky, or doing it. going for a ride in no hurry and having no specific destination. antique typewriters.

4. What turns you off? being lied to. midget porn. other people's farts. walmart. the inability to admit that you were wrong. sarah palin. the patriot act.

5. What sound or noise do you love? first i think of music and then there is so much bueatuful or angry or raw or harmonic stuff i love. i played in rock bands for years (guitar and vox) and it has been a place to go to either create, or dissapear into, that can make me scream "FUCK YOU I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!" or hang my head and sob and pray. it all depends on my mood, what's been happening for my loved ones and me, how much beer i've had in the past few hours... i love music.

6. What sound or noise do you hate? i try not to hate, although i'd imagine many would think i'm a hypocrite for writing that considering how many times i get loaded and rant on bikerMetric about killing bankers and such, but that isn't hate, it's patriotism. i really dislike hearing words of ignorance, obvious lies, and whatever a cop says.

7. What is your favorite curse word? motherfucker.

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? i have a profession? that's an interesting concept. sometimes i wonder wistully what it would be like to be a monk and brew ale and write poetry about god and sex and death all the time.

9. What profession would you not like to do? anything that puts me in a cubicle and/or under fluorescent lights.

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "there's an infinite supply of turbodog in the 'fridge, just past the 72 whores. grab a beer for me, too, and let's talk."
