My short bio: I was a senior about 7 weeks away from graduating when 4/16/2007 happened. I knew several people that were either killed or injured. There isn't a single week that goes by since that day when it doesn't cross my mind.
EDIT: Some additional insight so you don't have to dig through comments:
I was not in a classroom, and I was not shot. I was on my way to an unaffected class room.
I was good friends with one person that was killed, acquaintances with a few who were shot, and knew several others affected.
The top takeaways from the incident for me were:
The media is an extremely sharpened double-edged sword. The same vehicle that generated a global outpouring of support also arm-chair quarterbacked their way into criticizing our school, and stalked students around campus trying to generate tears-on-camera. I was set to graduate with a degree in mass communication, but abondoned the media industry altogether after that incident.
Virginia Tech is one of the most resilient, kindest communities I've ever known. Everyone parents asked us to "leave and come home," but not a single person I know did. We all stayed. Even the 20-or-so injured students all came back to school as soon as they could. Everyone wanted to be at school to help each other and not let something like this define who we were. One guy who was shot in the leg left his hospital bed against doctor's order on crutches, just so he could walk across stage at our departmental commencement ceremony. People gave him a full five minute standing ovation.
I remember being rather hurt/upset that it can branded as "the Virginia Tech massacre." No one asked us (the students) if that was okay. I realize that's not historical labeling works, but it just always bothered me.

EDIT 2: The intent here was to simply give folks a personal perspective on how a school/community is impacted beyond what you may recall hearing from the media. I care about my school and wanted awareness for my 32 heroes to live on a decade later. Even though I created a throw-away account and remained anonymous, there are redditors here who somehow believe I'm doing this for personal attention(?). There are certainly accounts and stories to be told of those "closer" to the incident itself, but I never claimed to be one of those accounts, so I'm having trouble reconciling some of the outrage and hatred in the comments.
With that, I'm going to stop responding to things now. My sincerest apologies if any one found this exploitative or disrespectful, it certainly was never the intent.
Out of all the characters you've voiced, which was the most difficult?
hey jack, I know you don’t often have time to help with individual bookings, but I just wanted to say that I’m still so, so thankful for your help bringing my father get back home after his flight got cancelled in US last year. You seriously saved us from an awful situation and asked for nothing in return. I know your list is much bigger now, but I just wanted people here to know the kind of chap you are.
To ask a question – now that your club is so much bigger, what does your typical day look like?
Do you think that this sort of thing is common in Hollywood? Why or why not?
Do you get random bouts of survivor's guilt?
Hey so glad I could be of help there and it all worked out in the end. Travel is stressful enough - add a cancelled flight and can get bad. Thanks for sharing that and for reaching out about it.
edit: sorry answered the wrong question here before!
My day is insane these days:
4-5 hours of searching using mainly ITA Software matrix (Google's back-end flight search tool - you can check it out on my last AMA for more details) and sites like Momondo and others. I also use SkyScanner a lot for weekend trip deals (2-4 day short breaks around Europe)
Around 3 hours of answering emails (scattered through the day). It's gotten to take a lot more of my time, but was always a goal of mine to have my subscribers be able to communicate with me anytime.
Then working on the other little things like new functionality developments.
Then at the end I sometimes eat too :-)
One additional survivor's guilt story: I lived next door to a first responder EMT. Loud jovial lumberjack type, loved everyone and everything. He did not even come out of his apartment for 10 days after that. It was the most broken I have ever seen a human being.
Later (much, much later), we talked about that day. He said he was "walking through a sea of corpses, and it was completely silent, with the exception of cell phones going off constantly, with parents and friends trying to reach someone." He said he can't even hear cell phone ringers the same anymore.
He's gotten a lot better, but he truly hasn't been the same since. I can't process how haunting something like that must be.
Previously you came out with the STM music video which cost you $600. This time you spent nearly $700,000 on another perfect video. Why did you decide to splurge so much on the new project?
Hi Tara, thanks for doing an ama! Do you ever randomly do character voices in public and get weird looks from people? Do they ever recognize you from your voice?
Hi! I'm actually writing my dissertation about the Virginia Tech shootings right now. It's a study on how the media portrayed the event in the month following it. How did you feel about the media broadcasting and showing a lot of the videos and images that the shooter sent to NBC News? A lot of what I've read so far has commented on the backlash against it, I'd love to hear what you thought about it.
I'm sorry to hear that you lost friends, I can't imagine how awful it must have been and still is. :(
CGI man. CGI is so fucking expensive. when i talk about dinosaurs, you can do some cheap, cheesy animation, or try to make it look as real as the movies. to make it look as real as the movies, it's gonna cost you a pretty penny. i also have way more money in the bank to spend than i did when save dat money came out. so i could make these moves easier.
Hmmm not sure what you mean by upgraded cheap flights?
I feel that is an individual decision. However, my opinion is that you do not throw a person's life and accomplishments away because they have committed a crime or done something you feel is heinous. His art, his employment, his achievements have nothing to do with me. They should be judged on their own merit, and we all make mistakes, should the rest of your life and contributions to society be ignored. I say no.
Finally, a question I was waiting for someone to ask :)
I was a mass communication student set to graduate just a few weeks later. I had a job lined up at a PR Firm, had just finished interning at a news station, and thought for sure I was on my way to a journalism career.
After 4/16 and the loss of my friend, Ryan Clark, CNN contacted the Marching Band for someone to interview about Ryan's legacy. I volunteered and agreed to be interviewed, on the condition that it was to cover and discuss Ryan's legacy.
Jim Acosta showed up with his producer and interviewed me just outside Newman Library about 3 weeks after the incident. I talked with him for 45 minutes on camera about Ryan, all the wonderful things he had done, and what he meant to the Virginia Tech Marching Band. In between topics, Acosta asked me--in a tone that would almost seem to indicate that he was personally inquiring, not interviewing--"Hey, what's it like for you, having to graduate in just a couple of weeks." I responded with something personal and honest to the effect of "It's hard to feel accomplished, to be honest."
That was the only fucking thing that CNN aired of the entire damned 45 minute interview.
I quit my job, started working in a different field other than media, and have never gone back.
The media was such a double edged sword in the days and weeks that followed. The out pouring of support from the entire planet was just incredible and helped way more than I even expected it could have. And we owe that awareness to the media. At the same time, you couldn't walk 50 feet without someone and a camera trying to get you to cry on screen so they could air it in between ads. It was awful.
Hey there, LD. I love your AKA's. Any chance I can get one?
Have you ever improvised lines or do you stick 100% to the script at all times?
Hi, currently a junior at VT. Wanted to ask a more happy question. What was your favorite dining hall?
AKA ketchup packet
Ah - there's a chance, but honestly most of my deals tend to be economy as you'll see. I'll try to spot something if I can. Fingers crossed :-)
If you could collab with any artist, past or present, who would you pick?
As a voice actress mainly, are you recognized in public often? When you are recognized, do you here things like "do the Timmy Turner voice" a lot?
I hope this isn't an inappropriate question, but you mentioned that this is now your full time job.
How do you make money from a newsletter?
I'd be more sympathetic to Polanski and willing to consider redemption if he hadn't fled from the consequences of his actions or was willing to turn himself in to face the consequences. Being as neither of those are the case, can he really be redeemed?
How long did it take you before you were comfortable again on campus?
I have a premium option for those who want to get some extra perks like more weekend trip emails and get ALL the deals. There's also a free version which gets a deal or two a week :-) The premium one helps me pay the costs to keep sending emails to so many people, as I don't like ads and prefer not to work with affiliates like other sites
It still doesn't pay what my job used to and I work twice as much, but it's 100% my fav type of work!
Do you still go on a lot of tinder dates? Not in this AMA's title anymore
Ever catch yourself singing songs from the shows you voiced for?
Current senior Hokie here, are you going to come up for the 10 year anniversary?
i dont tinder as much, no.
No advertising - just word of mouth really so far. People tend to share a lot when they score a deal, which is nice!!
I can pay my rent/bills if I live frugally in cheap(er) countries, so that's what I'm doing these days until hopefully we grow a bit. Can't complain as it beats a 9-5 and travelling is my passion anyway!
I am cool with that, I feel that way about alot of things too. Make your own choices.
I really wanted to, but I don't have anywhere to stay, and none of the people I was closest to can make it (they're spread all over the country now). I haven't entirely ruled it out, but as of now, I don't think I will.
I made it back for the Spring Game last year and was able to pay my respects, though.
How did you keep your Hokie passport in such good shape after 10 years?
I graduated in 2006 and within 5 years that shit was pretty much completely faded.
I admire your dedication to keeping your Hokie passport.
While I wasn't there since I had already graduated, many of my friends were still students and one was in Norris Hall that day (the one where they barricaded the door with tables and chairs to keep the gunman out as he was firing inside).
It was one of the most stressful and horrific days of my life. Glad you are doing well. I'll never forget checking the news online that morning at work and seeing that 2 people had died and me thinking it was some tragic but contained situation. Then seeing the count go up and up and me just panicking in the middle of work.
yes. it does
No, not Chiang Mai, but I've been and can see why they did it there!
I spent last month in Mexico and am currently staying with a friend in Ukraine actually. Hoping to move onto somewhere with a beach soon!
What is your favorite album? What makes you like it so much?
When you record, are you typically with your castmates or do you record alone? I've seen a bit of both through behind the scenes of Archer, Moana, I Know That Voice, etc.
Indeed - not a bad place to stick around if you are trying to save and come from abroad! Thanks mate!
at first getting caught, later his actions as he got older and had a daughter of his own
Continued free BT rides it is!! WOO!!
Thanks for Doing the AMA man.
My biggest question is...
Are you actually as frugal as Save Dat Money suggests?
Have you ever gotten emotional when voicing a character for whatever reason?
What was your favorite character quote you voiced for Season 7?
I get that you can save me money, but how can you save me from being beaten senseless by an airline?
What is your advise to underage girls that are involved with an older man?
How was it going back to the "normal daily routine" after a couple of days/weeks??
im pretty cheap yea. i drive a 2002 toyota avalon. i do spend recklessly on food though. i just get so hungry
Disclaimer: not being beaten is not guaranteed with purchase of airline ticket.
I think it is probably unwise, but you have to take your own path. When a man is attracted to much younger women, I think it implies a lack of maturity on his part. And you may be manipulated and taken advantage of. I don't think you can tell that to someone who is already in it.
Since I was only in town for 2 months after the fact (I graduated), there truly wasn't enough time to resume a "normal daily routine" for me. I'd be curious to know that from someone who still had 1-3 years left to go, though.
But when the time did come to leave Blacksburg, it hurt bad. It felt like I was being forced to abandon something in need of help that I had no choice but to leave behind. The months that followed were routinely painful as I went to job interview after job interview, and got asked the same exact sequence of questions in the middle of a job interview:
<looks at resume> "Mkay, I see here that you majored in mass communication at Virgin...oh. you were there? Did you know anybody?..."
When you were on Jake and Amir's podcast "If I Were You" you said your dick was too small to have sex from the side, but in your new video, it shows you doing so. Has your dick grown since the podcast?
Also, will you make another appearance on Jake and Amir's podcast? Thanks!
Hi, and thank you for everything you've done.
Is there a role, voiceover or otherwise, that you didn't get and really wanted or that you took and regretted?
If you're ever hiring, keep us (me, strictly me and only me) in mind.
My questions, where do you see this going? Are there any major milestones you would like to reach?
Did you file a civil case against Polanski in the US? LA Times claims you did. If yes, did you receive a settlement payment from him?
Edit: LA Times article claiming you settled for $500,000 in 1993 with Polanski and he still hadn't paid you any money in 1996. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2009/10/roman-polanski-paid-samantha-geimer-601583-in-civil-settlement-of-sexual-assault.html
Fellow Hokie here, class of '08.
I feel conflicted about this and similar AMAs. On the one hand, I bristle at the notion that my / our experience with the massacre would be of any note to anyone. "Hey look at me, I was near a thing that happened." On the other hand, I think people need to understand what goes on in those kinds of situations. There was so much confusion, so much uncertainty and panic in the hours following, that in the moment I could hardly process what was happening.
So maybe I'll just sum it up here:
Two of my friends died that morning. I was in the building next door, and was able to evacuate the area without incident. I heard the shots but didn't realize at the time what it was. That day will forever suck -- it will never be "okay".
What I remember most clearly, though, is how the community changed. Of course there were big things happening, like organizations coming in to provide services and counseling. But it's the little changes that stuck with me: people offering help to strangers with no expectation of return; drivers waving each other on in traffic jams; offering kind words, and meaning it. I can't be the only one who saw this -- did you also notice the town's transformation?
Blacksburg was always one of the best places to live, but it became much more than that. The community was faced with absolute evil, deep tragedy, loss... and from that loss came perspective, and kindness, and understanding. Y'all can ask me anything as well, but my response is probably going to be the same for most questions:
Just be good to each other, there's nothing more important than that.
i knew this would get called out. it kind of is too small most of the time. but sometimes i can pull it off, if the girl gives me the right leverage.
i hope i do, i love those guys.
I didn't try out for it but it would be nice to be on The Simpsons!
hehe will do. Send me an email and I'll put a star next to it if it ever comes to that! Fingers crossed we get there!
Yes, I sued him, yes he paid me. I really appreciated it. I was young and had children and had paparazzi filming my home parked at the end of my drive. I was very scared, I wanted to sue them, but my attorney advised that I should take it to who was really responsible. I thought that made sense.
YES!! The change is what I'll remember most as well! It was like going from one extreme experience to the other. It was like everyone became an inseparable family overnight.
FWIW, I was conflicted too. I was convinced to do this AMA, but I stayed anonymous because I don't need/want this to be a fame-generating event. I just wanted public awareness.
Have you ever met the legendary Larry David? If not, what would you want to go do with him should you meet in the future?
What is your favorite and least favorite part of going to cons?
Do you think think this has affected how you speak of him now?
Not asking if he bought you off, but by repairing some of the damage and helping your life, did it helpe you move forward?
Im so very sorry for the loss and trauma each of you experienced that day. I want to ask though, how do you feel when you reflect on Cho personally?
no but holy shit, yesterday, i took a meeting in his office. the guy im making my tv show with makes curb with larry. and it's the same office they shoot in for curb. i felt like i was really on the right track in life.
My favorite part is meeting the fans. My least favorite is getting pretty in the hotel room...and smelly people :-)
Edit: But seriously, for whatever reason, overbooking seems to be a lot more commonplace in US than it is elsewhere and it a bigger issue, even though it is technically legal in most regions. Overall I think US-based airlines are the worst globally, both in service and the way they treat customers. What United (and the police) did there was inexcusable. You’d think the guy had a weapon the way they threw him out of the chair. Completely fucked up.
That email from the CEO was just ridiculous really!
Giant snake, birthday cake, large fry, CHOCOLATE SHAKE. Oh man I loved the Fairly Oddparents! What's your most fond memory from the show?
Also, I've been interested in voice acting for kid shows since I was a kid. How was it you cracked into the business?
So given the hysteria around United Airlines at the moment and your vast knowledge of the air transport system, do you think a boy will be born who can swim faster than a shark?
I'm glad you got your settlement.
I can't imagine the pain that you carry everyday. In the ten years since this occurred do you feel people for the most part treat you differently because you were there?
no i havent, but my bitches ass's still look juicyyyyyyy
I started when I was 13 and I always knew that I wanted to be an actress. I took many acting classes, singing lessons and my first audition was for Hello Kitty.
Also aquaman already exists and I can only image how many mermaids he's knocked up to date.
Not anymore. Definitely the first 2-3 years afterwards they did. It was impossible to get through a meet and greet without answering the "Yes I was there, yes I knew people questions."
But now that there's been 2-3 generations of Hokies go through the school since then, no one thinks to specifically ask "Oh, were you there?"
I usually don't volunteer the information that I was there, unless the topic of gun control or school shootings comes up, just to allow someone awareness in preventing them from saying anything they'd later regret.
Is brain going to feature on any new upcoming songs? Or was he just a one hit wonder?
You have always seemed to creep into all the things I like some how, both shows and games. What was it like voicing Harley Quinn in the arkham games? What is your favorite Joker?
Hi Jack. I got your Paris - Tokyo - London deal as soon as it came out so am really looking forward to that!
Have you got tips for Hong Kong flights? It's rare I see them coming in too cheaply from London
Is there anything in particular you'd like to say?
Hi fellow Hokie. I was a freshman at the time. It feels so odd that the massacre was 10 years ago.
It was by far the most defining day of my life, as it was for many. At 18 years old I felt myself change from child to man almost overnight. How did you change, on a personal level?
brain's been whippin it up
I love doing the Arkham games and there is only one joker. His name is Mark Hamill.
HK has come up a few times before, usually on an awesome non-stop from London with Cathay (#1 airline last year I think), but we're overdue for one now I'd say. Have an amazing time on your Paris/Tokyo trip, that was a popular one, you never know you might be sitting next to another JFC member :)
I would like to say investigate the judicial misconduct in this case. The integrity of our justice system should be placed above a single crime.
I have to say one of the best things to come out of that was how respectful and mindful future generations have been since we've left Blacksburg. Everyone time I've gone back to visit, there are current students there at the memorial paying their respects, reading the placards. It's nice.
Hey man. Real talk. You have the hottest chicks in your videos. What steps do you take to make sure you don't pop a boner on set?
What was your experience like when you were playing Paz in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker & Metal Gear Solid V? Thanks!
jerk off every morning before you go in...but honestly, i get boners. i can't help it. i tell the girls "i'm sorry if i get aroused, and i'm sorry if i don't." pretty cool line right
Seriously if you ever run into another one, I HAVE TO know about it!
nothing crazy, mom of 3 grown men, grandma of one baby girl (that is super awesome) I do accounting and business management for work. Live back in Hawaii now, kinda regular stuff. But if I had the opportunity, I'd advocate for young women and victims of the media's cruel use of those who have been hurt.
I had one class with him, but it had 300 other people in it so I never met him.
I knew two close friends (one was a roommate) that had small classes with him, though. They said he hardly ever spoke, and when forced to speak, seemed "angry but restrained."
Being a Richmond, VA native, I am curious as to why you chose UR over all of the other schools. It is an incredibly nice school, but why did you choose UR specifically?
Hi, Tara! What was it like working on Drawn Together? Do fans ever still mention the show to you? It was a fun series that deserves more of a cult following.
Did you or any of your classmates encounter the sides of the internet that were either joking about the shooting, or glorifying Cho? How did you/they handle that?
i wanted a pretty campus, somewhere not too far from home (philly) but not too close. and a good school, with a small undergrad total. checked all those boxes
It's as low as £248 right now if you book it for winter 2018
Did you really use your bar mitzvah money to the get the rap shit started?
What's your favourite part of voicing Raven on Teen Titans Go?
I've actually never flown with them, but my father has. He describes it as the most terrifying experience in his life. Granted this was back in the 90s when they were widely known for being genuinely scary.
How are you enjoying being a grandmother compared to a mother? Seems like it comes with a lot of the nicer parts of being a parent, minus a lot of the worse parts. Congrats!
I had just graduated from PSU the year prior, moved to a state and a job with a ton of Hokies, and felt so, so, so goddamn angry and ashamed when that asshole did that.
Being with the cast. We have been together for about 16 years and we all really love each other. Plus, I get to slack off with my vocal chords.
Aeroflot had their own planes in the 90s... I would be terrified as well!!
Thanks, its amazing. It's been all boys til now, I hope we all do a good job with our little lady, we took her to our Women's March, raising her right
I would too in your situation, but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how much our entire school fell in love with Penn State after 4/16. The support your school gave was just incredible. You gained several thousand Penn State fans for life.
How much your Bar Mitzvah money, and what specifically did you invest in with the money to start off your career?
How awesome was it getting to voice Ashi for Samurai Jack Season 5? Did you get to record with Phil LaMarr? Will you be watching the next 5 episodes and how excited are you for them?
I booked your last offer to Tokyo via Paris on the outbound and Amsterdam on the return. I've wanted to do to Tokyo all my life and had always put it off because of the cost but to get a return for basically £300 meant it was finally achievable. Thank you
So very commendable. I am very impressed with your character and grace. You have my sincere admiration. Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter - I hope you have many opportunities to impart to her your strength, integrity and wisdom.
April 15th, 2007:
I was struggling through my second semester of general engineering as a freshman at VT, I never planned on going to college, honestly I thought I'd be in Iraq with the USMC by that point in my life, but a wonderful hippy high school girlfriend talked me out of that, and I made it into VT early decision by the skin of my rural Appalachian teeth. I'd snagged a job at West End Market in the pizza shop with a gaggle of hilarious frat boys, community service workers, and some genuinely good people. One of them was Leslie. I remember how excited she was for her soon, oncoming 21st birthday that night, and she also lucked out into working the register that night. The cushy job, way better than the serving lines where students wouldn't listen as you called out their orders and it was a regular 90 degrees behind those catering racks.
We had just entered the evening dinner rush, so pasta, bread sticks, garlic bread, pizza, and calzones were flying off the serving line as fast as we could make them. Except strombolis, no one ever ordered those bready abominations. I felt a sneeze coming on, a pretty wicked one, and I managed to rub it off into my sleeve a few times, but I couldn't hold it any longer. So I had two options, blow aerosolized mucus all over the serving line, or turn and shoot it into the sink. I made the obvious decision.
Unfortunately Leslie also decided that would be a good time to run some pizza orders back to our pizza tossing guy, and, well, world's collided. I sneezed all over that poor girl, to that point she was without words, and I was completely horrified. Then she started laughing, not cursing, not yelling, but laughing. Because that's who she was.
I apologized, our group of misfits survived another dinner rush, and then I apologized again, because what else can you do in that situation? We finished cleaning up, I wished her a happy birthday in absence, and said I'd see her next weekend for our shift. One step closer to finals and finishing the academic year.
April 16th, 2007
Fuck. Fuck. I had an 8am geography exam that I hadn't studied for, thanks Mario Kart. But hey, I could do rocks, walked in, answered some questions, mic drop, time for some DX breakfast. On the walk up towards Dietrich Hall I noticed the unnecessarily large group of police cars gathered around West AJ, didn't think much of it, and got my biscuit and retreated to the comfort of Pritchard Hall, 7th floor. Then the emails, texts, and calls started. It was almost impossible to contact anyone that morning, every cell tower was over loaded. We all knew it was bad, but we just stayed in our lounge, where we could kind of see across the drill field to Norris, and waited and hoped for it to end.
I didn't learn the damage until about 5pm that day, but Leslie was murdered, as well as my friends Mary and Jarrett. I remember feeling numb for the rest of the day, my friends knew I was fucked up, and took me to Hokie Grill to get some dinner. I remember eating a Chic-Fil-A sandwich (no pickles) and losing it. All self control gone, just weeping without end into a goddamn fried chicken sandwich. My friends got me out of there as soon as they finished dinner and I just collapsed in my dorm room on the floor.
Every day I think about them, and every breath I draw I do the most I can for whoever I can. Because everyone likes to push the dead into sainthood, but those three were about as close to perfect as I've ever known. Kind, smart, and driven to help others. And that's how I plan to live and die, for those who had their lifes cut short.
And that's all I have to say about that.
it was like 6k, and it was about 2k per video back then, so it bought me 3 videos. and my microphone.
Super crazy awesome! Yes, I recorded with Phil. I'm very excited for them.
Brilliant!!! Soooo many people booked this one - there are probably airplanes filled with JFC members lol
Thanks for sharing this. Really glad that you and your roommates had each other that day (and the impossible days that followed). I didn't know Mary, but several people I've talked to that did seemed to just love the mess out of her.
I can't imagine what all of this would've been like if we had to go it alone. <3
What's good Mr. Leftward-Sloping Penis! What in your opinion was more iconic: rapping with Snoop, or getting head from Juanita in his office?
What inspired you to audition for the role of a magical talking unicorn?
Some of your deals are a little bit creative, in the routes and specific flights you recommend. Do you have any personal rules that have stopped you sharing particular deals?
For example, you might have spotted a route to NYC for £275 but its 32 hours and has 4 changeovers so you don't bother. Forgive me if this is a stupid question I'm not sure how you actually set up the deals.
Great service I hope to be able to book on one of your recommendations later in the year
Do you think the widely reported story that roman fled because he was not going to be given a fair trial was true or just an excuse? What would you like to see happen to him at this point if it were up to you?
Gobbles in support Hello fellow Hokie, I am proud to call myself a part of Hokie Nation. I'm a recent grad of 2016, but people I meet in the real world always ask me about the shooting, even though I was only in middle school.
My questions, how often do people ask you about the tragedy and how does the conversation go? Is it the first thing people ask about when you say you are a Hokie grad?
(Thanks for doing this ama).
youd have to put them neck and neck, no pun intended
I didn't audition. Lauren Faust came to my house and asked if I could help her out with a pitch presentation.
pretty much - I aim to balance great prices with convenience. I personally would avoid taking a flight that's £100 cheaper but has 2 long layovers or something crazy like that. Or if layovers are overnight in some city, there really is no benefit if you have to grab a hotel and a bus from the airport just to grab the savings.
Hmmmm I have a bunch more - will have to come back with those
I know for a fact that the Judge Rittenband lied to Roman and his attorney, the judicial misconduct that occurred is beyond belief. Any person in their right mind would have fled rather that trust a Judge engaged in such bizarre behavior and who had lied twice before. There was to be no trial, just a plea deal broken by the Judge. I would like him to be sentenced to time served, in absentia if necessary, and then get an apology from from the DAs office after they are forced to investigate and the truth sees the light of day.
Hope the real world is treating you well :) I remember wishing I could just live full time in Blacksburg instead of graduating. VT feels like a young adult retirement community by comparison.
It's interesting that you get asked that question still. Since it's been so long, I don't get that question anymore. 2-3 years afterwards, people asked me it all the time though.
Sadly, I think since other tragic shootings have happened since then, it's not as much as a 'novelty,' as messed up as that sounds.
Being the "worst mass shooting in America's history" was both a title that we never wanted, and a title we never wanted to give up. So Orlando's nightclub was almost just as dreadful for that reason.
Do you think the seam between your nuts means that we were once two different people?
How strong are you? It's a bit bold to just have the last name strong, I feel like you owe it to us to prove you are strong.
I do a lot of deals that have a 'nice' layover. For example arrive mid-day in Amsterdam and spend 24-36 hours there before flying off to Bangkok or whatnot the following evening. Those are fantastic!
The ones I try to avoid are 12 hour layovers where you arrive in the evening and basically depart early morning. Not much you can do then apart from sleep at the airport.
No I don't, I just have crappy taste in movies I guess. I loved the fearless vampire killers and the ninth gate, hated rosemary's baby, not impressed with Chinatown and never saw the Pianist. I think his style is to dark and hopeless for me. They are only movies, alot of good people work hard to make them happen.
I still use the cheesy "I am" line too :) haha
LD, longtime Dickhead here, seen you twice live and you put on an amazing show. Two questions feel free to not answer both.
1) when do we get a new project from you?
2) any thoughts of doing something comedic outside of hip hop?
Did you get to hang out with Mark Hamill while doing voice work for the Batman: Arkham City game? And if you did, what was it like working with a Jedi?
(Sorry if this question was asked already)
24hr layover in Amsterdam or Vegas? Hell yeah! 24hr layover in Doha, Qatar? I'll pass.
You seem to have forgiven him. Was there any work you did around forgiveness? Writing? Meditations? I've had a hard timing forgiving many people in my life, but when I work on it I'm always glad to get closer to letting go. Thanks!
What class were you in during the shooting? My friend Leslie was killed and for a long time afterwards I searched obsessively online for accounts of the specifics of how she died but never found more than a brief outline of the sequence of events.
1) i don't know that answer. this stuff takes me a while. and i was touring a lot last year so ive only had the last few months to lock down in the studio. just be patient, i never ever wanna rush stuff.
- yes for sure. im working on my own tv show. it's just as important to me as music.
you just have to remember that you are only hurting yourself by carrying anger and regret. I don't want to hurt myself, do you?
I was on my way to a class in Squires, walking on campus. I wasn't yet inside any class room.
If you know which specific class she was in, it would probably be easier to find out details.
How long do you think it will take for "SOMEBODY SUCCCKK MEEE" to catch on as a worldwide phenomenon?
How are you in EVERYTHING?
Loving your role in the final season of Samurai Jack so far and my daughter adores MLP and Super Hero Girls.
How is ths any different to other cheap flights sites like Airfare Watchdog or Scotts Cheap Flights?
Do you still hold any ill feelings toward him, or have you forgiven him entirely?
Wow! I was also there that day. I was a graduate hall director at the dorm next to West AJ where the first shooting was and one of our RAs was killed. My masters's graduation was 3 weeks away and it was the most depressing graduation with all the posthumous degrees. I know victims' families who were upset at how the President handled the incident for not cancelling classes after the first shooting happened and they had no suspect in hand. What do you think about the university's decision to not let him go? Also - I can't believe it's been ten years.! That day haunted me for so many years. I was able to visit campus a few years ago again and they've made permanent memorials that are really great.
mannnnn. hopefully not too long. do you like it. do you think it's funny
Those are 2 slighly different categories there but Scott Flights are a great resource too - they started in the states and I started JFC here in the UK. We are similar in that we both find and send out lots of really cheap long-haul deals, but i try to cater JFC towards travellers like myself, who may take a trip or two per year to somewhere like Asia or S. America, but will also want to do a few weekend trips to Europe along the way.
Other sites make a big deal out of £25 RyanAir fares to wherever in Europe, but most of my subscribers can’t take a off 3 days mid-week to save a few £ on a cheap fare, so when it comes to quick getaways, I try to focus on balancing convenience and price and send out Friday - Sunday trips and focus on bank holidays. I don’t think there are many others doing that as it doesn’t give the same ‘wow’ factor.
Airfare Watchdog is another great resource for Americans as well, but I find websites in that category tend to push what I call ‘hotel spam’ and ‘car rentals’ as that is where they make their money. I try to aim for providing only useful info and cheap flights - no referral fees or commissions to worry about, so the incentives line up with what my subscribers are after
No ill feelings period. We and our families have been through so much because of it. I honestly did not think it was a big deal in 1977 and was shocked to learn it was. What the courts and the media did to me, and now him, that's what's hard to forgive. I didn't have today's lens to look at what was happening then, it was a very different time to be growing up in.
Sorry, maybe I'm mis-reading but I didn't understand the "not let him go" question.
I lived in East AJ my Freshmen year and loved the East/West AJ bridge. Many shenanigans were had.
I heard that they renovated both buildings and are spoiled with HVAC now! Can you believe those whipper-snappers??!
I get mistaken for you a lot, to the point that I have a whole shtick I run through where I just pretend to be you and go with it. Its shown me how terribly annoying being famous can be. I've started collecting pictures with "fans" calling them my #LilDickyPics
- Do you cause this problem for a lot of Jewish doppelgangers?
- Can we get a picture together to add to my #lildickypics?
- Any tips for interacting with "fans" so I can make it more authentic?
Happy Passover btw. (I don't think we look too similar but I get mistaken for you 2-3x a week)
Edit: If we could get a picture or video with all your doppelgangers that'd be awesome.
Edit 2: for the people asking for pics do you not know how hyperlinks work?
What was it like working on the Sabrina Movies?
Also super excited for the new season of My Little Pony and thanks for being the voice of just about everybody.
Hi Jack, been subscribed since your first Reddit AMA and love what you're doing!
Question: I've wanted for 16 years to go to Japan and can finally afford to do it now next year - Do you ever see error fares so far in advance? All the ones you email seem to be within the next 9 months or so? I'm hoping to go in either March or September 2018!
You didn't feel like it was a big deal at the time? Do you feel like it was a big deal now? Would you say that what Roman did has caused a lot of harm or pain in your life afterwards?
I saw in a lot of your other comments that the judicial case was a lot more traumatizing, which I can totally understand--one incident was private, one was very public...
Hello there. I was a victim of a high profile shooting as well (I did an AMA couple years ago), and just wanted to say I wish you well. I hope you don't blame yourself for the deaths of others like I do at times. It's certainly had a terrible impact on my life in some ways and it's so weird to go through life with this invisible burden on me (or us). I don't really have a question, just wanted to wish you well. I guess my question would be that: how are you now? Are you living as normal a life as possible? Do you have any personal advice to deal with it? Obviously everyone deals with trauma differently, so I'm just curious how you deal with it since you're putting it out there. Thanks
the funny thing is, i get mistaken for me a lot. like in the sense that people come up to me ALL the time and say "you look just like lil dicky". and i go, i am he. and then they go, no you aren't. and then i go okay. and then they go are you really him? i go yea. they go "rap". isn't that crazy?
Amazing, you'll love Japan, worth the wait! Error fares appear randomly so it's hard to say when they'll come up but I've seen error fares that you can book ahead for a max of about 8-10 months.
Hi Tara What's your favorite batman movie ?
Can you walk us through what it was like on campus that day?
no i dont fuck with the war
Did you see the comment about the open-jaw flights to Tokyo with Aeroflot? Those are now available in early March as well! I would wait another week or two and try to grab them for mid-March 2018
hollywood, modeling, not a safe thing in 1977. Didn't seem like a risk at all, but then I guess you never know where the danger can be hiding
It was winding down to be the end of the school year, but ramping up to be end-of-semester exams. Because of that, there had been a few bomb threats just the week prior because a bunch of ass holes were trying to get out of exams. So campus lock downs were still an inert annoyance, at best.
Legitimate police activity was no stranger to us either though, because an escaped prisoner had recently terrorized the area as well.
So when it was a blustery cold damp morning that Monday and students got another lockdown notice, we all just sort of discounted it as an isolated incident and mild inconvenience.
When details started to break of an early morning shooting in West AJ dorm room, we then felt as though actual facts had been married up to the campus email notice, but still weren't certain on the details.
I felt as though that wouldn't possibly affect my specific classes, so I began walking around 9am towards my class in Squires Student Center, which took me right by the drillfield and Norris Hall. As I was getting closer to Burruss/Norris Hall, I saw people running in the opposite direction. They were running in isolation though, there was no mass exodus or groups of people running. That detail in particular struck me as weird.
I continued walking towards the area, but just remember being mildly confused. It wasn't until I spotted someone I knew running the opposite direction that I knew anything was happening. I stopped him and asked why people were running. He said that someone with a gun was inside Burruss and started opening fire (he mis-heard, mis-saw, as it was actually Norriss Hall, nearby). So I hurried back to my apartment just off campus where my roommates and then patiently awaited information on the University's website and our email inboxes.
We were able to get more information through the grapevine of text messages and student emails emailing one another than we were the university itself. They were wholly unprepared to deal with something like this.
Eventually, around 10am-ish (if i remember correctly), we were told that the entire campus was closed, and that everyone should return to their homes/dorms. From that email until the first press conference that afternoon, it was a massive panic of who was where and "why haven't we heard from person x."
Once the press conference announced "approximately two dozen fatalities" everyone's entire demeanor changed, and the mood shifted from panic to "there's absolutely no fucking way this is real life right now." There was just a constant sound of emergency sirens running about town, empty fields turned into satellite truck farms where news van after news van would just pop up out of no where.
Everyone knew someone. It was like a scavenger hunt from hell trying to piece together who all didn't make it. The student body had pieced it all together before the news had announced anything, but it still stung just as bad hearing their names read publicly.
When is the new music coming, LD? It's been almost 2 years since Professional Rapper came out.
how often do you recognize one of your voice actor peers on TV/radio/games a day?
Hi Jack! I actually came across you via Reddit from someone who recommended you. Just one question really - what is your ambition for the company? Is it scaleable?
First off, a huge thanks for being involved in the "You Must Remember This" Manson Family podcast. It was an incredible learning experience about that whole time period and the overall vibe and mentality of the people who lived through it. I'm very happy to see how much you are enjoying your life with your family!
Since you went through so much with the media personally, are you trusting of anything your read or hear even from "reputable" new sources? Its great that you were able to move on and even forgive Polanski but I could understand if you turned out eternally frustrated with the "news" industry. I can't imagine they have ever apologized to you.
How do you feel about that certain cards against humanity card?
be patient, it takes me a while. i'm working all the time. it'll always be worth the wait, but rushing it and making subpar content is the last thing i want to do. i have really high hopes.
I hope so!
I just plan to grow and create a community of savvy travellers and JFC members. I DONT want to be like everyone else and start pushing hotel spam or car rentals or start taking commissions from booking sites that don't always offer the best deal on a particular flight.
We also plan to grow a bit - starting with Europe this year!
my experience is if you don't see it hear yourself, you can't really believe it or judge. I am skeptical of everything, cause I know it can be 98% lies
Yeah, I discarded that exact card immediately. I knew what I was buying when I bought it, but it hits too close to him, so I just leave that one out.
What's the tastiest error fare you ever managed to snag for yourself before Flight Club?
even though you have forgiven him, do you think he should return and serve time in jail if the court says so, or would you rather see him remain free?
What's up Hokie, Hoo here. I remember our first responders in Charlottesville departing en masse immediately when the news broke, and I often think about what you and your classmates must have been going through and how surreal it all was. What kind of changes were made in your life the moment everything went down, and how have you approached even the smallest tasks in life with the memories you have?
I applaud you for this AMA.
I think he has caught fairies before. The question is...will he keep them?
I think I mentioned this one in the last one. For me £112 to Bali ages ago. Was one of the happiest days of my young life back then! :-)
He served the time he was promised by Judge Rittenband. He has since serve a total of over 355 days after his arrest in Switzerland. The maximum sentence would have been 365. He served what he was given and then was lied to by the Judge. I never asked anyone to put him in jail for a single day and certainly think he should never serve another day on account of a corrupt and celebrity obsessed judicial system in Los Angeles
That week was the week I stopped "hating" UVA :)
I still make fun of them whenever I can :), but seeing the response out of UVa brought me to tears more than any other school. Seeing the bridge you guys painted orange and maroon. That was an incredible, incredible feeling. On behalf of every Hokie, thank you.
I'd say the most significant, small change day-to-day is probably just thankfulness. I find myself being more thankful for interactions with people that I would have previously taken for granted.
What's your favorite rap album of all time? Besides your own
How do you prepare your self for the work day? Do you do voice preps? Any routines to get you ready? Also my kids recognize your voice across shows. Thanks for doing this AMA.
I like to warm up with my singing teacher's exercises that I have saved on my phone.
Sawweeeet! Well done using those tool... I find the best services I use also educate a bit, so I was really going for that when I started - even better that you were able to find your own deals really. I spent my honeymoon in Bali as well and it was amazing - I'm sure you'll love it!
Have DA Lacey stop objecting to roman being sentenced to time served (now 355 days) and investigate the misconduct in the courts and her own office that has been going on for 40 year. This is not just me, a corrupt justice system needs to be exposed! And thanks, I am mostly all good, I get pissed once in a while, but this is my life. What can ya do right? Culprits, Judge Rittenband, Steve Cooley, David Wells, Judge Espinosa. It is really on the DAs office to stop the cover up
The Math Empo was the most frustrating academic experience of my life. I can't believe they reduced human interactions to red solo cups on top of monitors.
I actually dropped my math empo calculus class... while IN THE MATH EMPO TAKING CALCULUS. I was that frustrated.
LD! Grandest Fans here. We love how successful you have become, very well deserved.
Do you remember writing the ScanGauge Rap song for your Kickstarter?
We play it at every party!
Omg I love you <3 Can't wait for your Harley Quinn in Injustice 2. What do you think of Harley Quinn?
Uff so jealous. How do these things still happen with so much of it automated?
Do you feel Sharon Tate's murder directly affected his ability to view the world morally? I certainly don't justify nor condone his behavior. But it must have drastically altered his life choices.
I am a professor for a community college, and we have gone through a number of trainings and seminars to prepare us for an attack in the campus (gun related or otherwise). However, I find it annoying when I get criticized for coddling "snowflakes" with our safe spaces on campus. Frankly, I would rather have a student vent and talk about their issues with a coloring book and stuffed puppy than come shoot up my classroom.
My question is, what services do you think we should have on campus to help students with mental health issues? What can I do as a teacher to help my students (without being weird about it)?
very very vaguely. im happy you guys liked it tho
Massive massive complex pricing databases which are then forwarded to bookings agents who price based off of those and other agents which match fares of those agents and yada yada yada. One mistake by anyone, anywhere and it can get multiplied onto a dozen websites sometimes.
Big data = big mistakes :-)
Great question that I'd like a solid answer to as well, but I'll try to answer it this way:
When I was distraught, shocked and grieving afterwards, I went to the Cook Counseling Center that offered licensed mental health professionals to students. I attended 8 sessions over the course of 6 weeks, was prescribed an anti-depressant, and came out of it much, much better. Once I was there, it was very easy. Everything worked the way it was supposed to: I no longer felt alone and scared, I got help from professionals, and assistance from medicine on an as-needed basis. None of that was difficult.
What WAS difficult, was just showing up. If we could find creative ways to remove the barriers of getting help, I think we'd be far better off. We need to start treating mental health the same way we treat the dermatologist: there's no stigma in going, and it's a small burden to remember to go every 12 months, but you don't feel "weird" for going.
However you can make students feel "normal" for caring enough about their mental health to just show up and ask for help is the solution we need.
If you had to get a tattoo of someone's face who would it be, where would you get it, and why?
What moment was the highlight of your acting career so far? what are your thoughts ont he vast majority of your fans?
I was on campus for one at NIU, a few months after VT. I remember a few people from VT sent messages to people through Facebook, and it meant a lot at the time.
I was fortunate to have not been too nearby (was eating lunch across the street and didn't see more than all the emergency vehicles arriving) and to not know anyone who was injured/killed personally. I did share a class with someone who was killed but did not know them.
But anyway, I know many of the feelings you describe. Every time I see one of these in the news, I'm right back there even though it was almost 10 years ago. I remember what I was wearing, I still have gloves that I spilled wax on during a vigil, I still remember that afternoon of not knowing. I don't think it's something I'll ever fully escape. My heart breaks that anyone ever has to feel the way I do or worse, because realistically, I was not directly affected. So many people have had to feel so much worse, to never really recover, or to not even get the chance to recover. I'm luckier than many, as much as this event still haunts me.
I'm sorry that you and your school and your friends had to go through that, too. I'm sorry that anyone does.
And because I think I have to ask a question and I don't feel like making it related: what's your favorite kind of cheese? I think I'm going to go with smoked gouda.
hmmmm...maybe allen iverson's face on my heart. he just really impacted my life, growing up in philly.
I have to say, ringing the Nasdaq Opening Bell earlier this week is definitely up there!
Hey man - awesome of you to take your little brother on a trip like that. I personally like Vietnam, but would probably choose Thailand for a first trip to SE Asia for your bro. These aren’t the best fares I’ve seen by a while, and they could still come down another £50 at some point, but EVA Air currently have some attractive non-stop fares which should make travel easier. It’s a top 5 airline with a direct flight to Bangkok - doesn’t get too much better than that for a first trip! :-)
I think I may have been too young to have had a grasp or knowledge of that type of thing back then
I'm fond of most soft goat cheeses, I think.
I remember the candlelight vigil we had at our memorial for NIU. It's terrible that these things keep happening. Just awful. It's like you're thankful that other people know the feeling, but at the same time you feel terrible that they even know the feeling to begin with.
Hey LD, just wanted to say thanks for doing this and for finally releasing the Pillow Talking video - it was definitely worth the wait!
I'm assuming everyone else will ask about if/when you've got new music coming out, so my question is this: If you were trapped in an empty room with no doors or windows and only a perfect clone of yourself, would you fuck or fight the clone? You're released after an hour and no one will ever know what happened in the room.
Tara what is the best part of being a voice actress?
Thanks for doing the AMA, Jack!
A few questions:
I assume this is now your full time job? What other jobs have you had in the last 5 years?
Given you can probably work from anywhere in the world, how much of your average year do you spend abroad?
Do you plan all your own travels around cheap tickets, or do you occasionally splash out and pay full-fare for convenience?
How do you feel about rape fetishes or people with rape fetishes? Have you met or know someone that you know has this certain fetish? Would you feel uncomfortable being around someone with this even if you didn't think they would hurt you?
I was on campus for a different school shooting. What I found most haunting was the sound of all the helicopters flying overhead. It was just like audio/video from the Vietnam War. What still haunts you about that day?
i have to fuck him or fight him? only two options? id love to just talk to him...but if that's not an option. fight him. it would be such a good, evenly matched fight
Wow! Now that's a question. I don't think I know anyone with a fetish thing, but if I do, as long as they keep it private, I say your life is your life. But depending, if I knew, a rape fetish I could not tolerate, I foot fetish maybe. I guess it depends on the person and there "interests". I don't like to judge, but I certainly do sometimes.
That, the sirens, and all the field lights for live remote broadcasts, yes. It was like living in a hot zone, I agree.
That part isn't too "haunting" to me, for whatever reason, but yeah, those audio visual cues stick with me as well--hope you're doing okay.
Hey Dave! I am a huge fan of both you as a rapper and as a person. I've been impressed with how real you still are despite being so popular. Do you feel like your fame has affected you much on a personal level?
Loved the pillow taking vid. It was truly the best music video I have seen. It was exactly as I envisioned the song so I can see why it took 10 months. Worth the wait! By far my favorite song of yours!!
Keep it real, LD.
Are you ever invited to do voice work? For example, with Ben 10, did you have to audition for the latest show or did the producers call you?
Hi! Thanks for sharing with us all today. After the shooting took place, was there any negative stigma against asians on campus? I was in elementary school in 2007, and as a korean, my mom didn't send me to school the day after the shooting in the fear that I would be subject to racial prejudice and hate.
i dont think my fame has effected me in the slightest. i honestly barely feel famous, compared to where i envision ending up. so, i just think to myself about how small of a scale all of the attention is now, to what it will be like in three years. ask me again in three years. hopefully ill be the same dude. i think i will be. ive always envisioned this life for me, so none of if surprises me
I had to audition.
Cheese strings (String Cheese in American). What does that say about me? lol
None that I witnessed or head of at all, no. That sort of thing never even crossed the minds of anyone I knew.
Can you tell us more about the show you're working on? Id love to see you in a comedy show or movie.
Will there be any guest VA's in Season 7?
based upon my real life and true experiences. just me being me. a guy trying to be a rapper
Yes! William Shatner and Felicia Day.
Is Mark Hamill a secret brony?
Ryan "Stack" Clark.
I'm sure there the other 31 were just as amazing in their own right, I just didn't know them as well as Stack.
I had a few classes with Stack. I was in the marching band with him. I ate lunch with him. That guy was a beacon of hope in an otherwise uncertain world.
He was just so damn fun I can't even put into words how much his fellow friends cared about him. I never met a single human being that had anything but smiles to say about the guy.
He had a voice that could penetrate and soar over top of an entire football stadium of people. It was a surprise to no one that he died responding to help another person.
He was pursuing multiple degrees, majors, and minors, all as an undergrad. He also decided to work in the dining hall to support himself. He also did countless other charitable work. No one's quite sure how he managed to do so much as a college student that most of us won't accomplish our entire lives.
My first "college party" experience was traveling as a Freshman with the marching band to the 2003 game on the road vs Pittsburgh. After the game was over (we lost) and the band went back to the hotel, stack grabbed me from my hotel room and said "hey, some guys from the Pitt band invited us to a frat party, let's go." (He didn't even know who I was at the time).
We were driven to this basement party downtown, where a naked man was playing Billy Joel's pianoman on a baby grand piano, and a homemade punch of some kind that tasted like cough syrup was being served to anyone entering the basement.
Before I could even ask anyone's name, Stack had me swaying and holding hands with Pittsburgh band members, singing Piano man, and drinking horrible mystery purple drink.
That was probably my favorite of many memories of him, but it was also the first interaction I had with him.
About how long after talkin wit a bitch did brain get to poop?
What sets people like yourself or Cree Summer apart in the animation voice over field?
We're very versatile, easy to work with and not too shabby looking. :-)
Hey Dicky, big fan.
In your Snapchat recently, you had a clip of yourself rapping along with what sounded like a sneak peak of a new song from you. Can you confirm this and possibly give any further details on upcoming singles/ album?
Did you ever think you'd be ringing the Nasdaq opening bell in the name of My Little Pony? What was that like?
im making new music all the time. some of it sucks. some of it is amazing. youll hear the good stuff only. been working a lot with brain lately too, he's been in the studio a ton. trying to get him out there.
No and it was honestly the most thrilling day ever! It was very magical.
How would you describe your relationship with James the squirrel?
My kids and I love Teen Titans Go! Thanks for your sardonic and wry Raven!
Does Raven's attitude ever creep into your own daily life?
very up and down, hot and heavy. he loves me, he loves me not type of thing
Have you ever tought about changing your rapper name?
What did your parents and relatives say when u told them you're going to be a rapper named lil dicky?
Just a random question, but how big is your wardrobe? (I may or may not want to borrow a dresses few for mine ;D)
i think i have to see it through as lil dicky. i truthfully dont like introducing myself as lil dicky, ill always say dave. but lil dicky is like batman, it's a symbol more than a person. know what i mean
You can NEVER have enough cute things to wear.
I'm a huge fan of your work, but more of your skill set. I like pillow talk, but the antagonist was probably my favorite on the album. Do you have any plans to make a serious hip hop record in the future?
Out of the shows you've been in, what's your favorite?
if by record you mean song, yeah. but a serious album, i just hope to god nothing happens in my life that would ever have me making 12 unfunny songs. that's just not who i am.
The Little Mermaid 2!
So a lot of people have been posting fanart of Ashi and Jack together, either as a couple or as stepdad/adopted daughter. Where do you stand on Ashi/Jack without spoiling too much?
don't even sweat it. guys are lucky that girls value personality so highly. if she likes you enough, she won't even care. she'll be so moved by how much she likes you that she'll orgasm easier than she would with a guy with a huge dick who isn't as cool as you. you should also do a lot of foreplay.
I really can't say without spoiling :-)
Who was your favourite artist to collaborate with and why?
Also who would you most like to collaborate with in the future?
What is your favorite part of the fandom?
well, a bunch of collabs happened digitally. brendon urie came into my studio though, and sang it right in front of me. so that was my favorite. because as soon as he sang, i knew he was perfect and it was cool to witness the moment in person.
How adork-able they are. How generous they are. How inclusive they are.
Any plans to collaborate with Drake or Chance the Rapper? That would be crazy
Can you share some details about the movie?
It's going to be VERY cute. We have a lot of wonderful guest stars and great songs. The coolest part is that we're going to have sea ponies.
Hi, Tara! What is your favorite Teen Titans moment or episode?
I love Lady Legasus and the colors of Raven. In the original series, I loved stuff with Slade and Trigon.
Has anyone ever sucked you off after you said "somebody suck me"?
So glad you're here Tara! You were my childhood! My little sister adores you as you voice Twilight, and Raven who are her favourite characters!
Who is you're favourite background pony?
Will you be attending any fan conventions in Canada such as Fanexpo 2017?
Do you have an order of EG films that you like?
What are the chances of LD getting a Frank Ocean feature on the next album?
i should be so lucky. blond is my favorite album of the last 5 years.
Of course! Raven loves ponies.
D, huge fan. What has been your favorite music video to make to date? They're all so clever and unique. Maybe share a cool story from one of the sets too?
Hi Tara! I'm a big fan, and I practically grew up watching your work!
I have a couple questions for you, If you don't mind answering!
What are your thoughts on Teen Titans Go!, in contrast to the original Teen Titans series?
Which character has been the most fun to voice?
Who is your favourite villain that the Titans have faced so far?
Thank you for taking the time for doing this AMA!
ex boyfriend no question. cuz i just knew the whole time it would change my life. and it was fun. and back then, you didnt have to get permits, do things officially, you just ran around with a camera and filmed. shout out brian storm - my DP
I love them both. It's a toss up between Power Puff Girls, Fairly OddParents and Raven. Probably Slade.
Who is your favourite pony?
easily. one is red. one is orange. one has one texture that's less juicy and slimy. the other is slimy. etc.
Fucken loved this video, Dude. The production is sick!!! Especially loved all the attention to details you made, the shit on the side tables, no dabs shirt, but yo! the sound effects blew me away. Did you do those? Sounded so cray.
no we hired a great sound design company, Voodoo Highway Music & Post Inc.
Hey there! I just want to say that "Pillowtalk" was actually the first song I heard from you. My friend played it in my car on our way to football practice and we were laughing the whole way there. Since then I've been listening to everything. Just want you to know you've got a lot of fans (at least around me) here in SoCal.
Anyway, my question: How does it feel to be a professional rapper?
i respect that. i like that's the first song you heard. it honestly feels amazing to be a professional rapper. its a true dream come true
i think im doing a lot of stuff, on a pretty successful level, that's never been done before. i rap about sucking my own dick, ya know? and i still went platinum. i think that's pretty sick.
You are a lyrical genius and I love how your mind works. Love you lots.
So ever since we met the Burds, I've been wondering if your mom has yet to have a conversation with Puff. Daddy's mom? Like have they been able to hash over the woes and worries of their rapper son's lives and did Momma Diddy get to tell momma Burd how she backs her the fugg up?
That would be a lunch I'd like to sit in on.
no my mom has still yet to speak with mrs diddy. id pay so much money to see that. i say fugg too
