5×5 With The Hook: Twindaddy.

He’s a self-appointed acolyte of the Empire and a blogger/writer/poet/dude I’ve admired for years.

He is known the world over as Twindaddy and his time in the 5×5 spotlight has finally arrived. Most of us know him by reputation if nothing else, but if you’re unfamiliar with his work click on the links below and prepare to be amazed.

Twindaddy is:

  • Vulnerable.  He is more than willing to pull back the veil we use to protect ourselves from the world and let it all hang out.  I admire that more than I can articulate.
  • A team player.  He answers blog challenges with gusto.
  • Clever.  And that’s all I have to say about that.

The truth of the matter is, Twindaddy is a blogger’s blogger. Period. He shares his corner of the web with two very capable and cool bloggers –  Revis Edgewater and 1Jaded1 – but he’s made his mark on the blogosphere all on his own. Ironically, he forms real connections with others by being himself rather than constructing a virtual persona.

The fact is, I admire Twindaddy and after you’ve spent a little time with him so will you.

1)  You’re a Star Wars man through and through (obviously), but if you were a part of a Star Trek landing party would you be a part of the Command Crew – or a Red Shirt?

   Command Crew, obviously. I mean, who wants to be a Red Shirt? They’re all inconsequential and die almost immediately. I like to think I’m not so easily disposed of.

2)  Your favorite soda pop is…

   Whichever one has been spiked with sweet, smooth Southern Comfort. Barkeep! Get me another!

    Janis Joplin knew what was up.

3)  You’re a devoted dad; what is the best thing about parenthood, in your humble opinion?

   Having them take out the trash and do the dishes instead of taking care of it myself. Those are trivial tasks I just can’t be bothered with. I mean, why take the dog out when I can just have one of the kids do it for me while I continue to slaughter orcs on the latest Lord of the Rings video game?

   Seriously, watching my children grow from infants who could literally do nothing but cry into young, intelligent, and well-mannered young men is the best part. Seeing in them the parts of me I value. Watching them learn and grow. Watching them succeed and thrive. Watching as they turn into their own individual persons. There are many “best” things about parenthood. I’m sure I could keep on listing things I love about being a parent, along with all the things they do that drive me nuts.

4)  I’ve become a fan of the television drama, Resurrection, which features non-brain-chewing versions of dead folk walking the streets of a small town. If you could resurrect a deceased loved one, who would you choose?

   Zombies who don’t feed on the living? What’ kinda fuckery is this?

   I actually addressed this (sort of) recently. Though I’d love to bring them all back, if forced to narrow it down to one it would be my maternal grandmother. She was taken from us when I was only 7 years old. My memories of her have whittled from detailed to vague. The memories I have of her are more like ideas than concrete recollections. I mainly remember her as a woman who was always smiling and laughing, who loved passionately, and was very affectionate.

5)  What is the strangest thing you’ve ever shouted during orgasm?  (Yes, I went from tender and insightful to slightly pornographic. Welcome to my world, kids.)

“Oh, shit! Cramp”


And on that muscle-clenching note, I bid you farewell for another day, my friends. My thanks to Twindaddy for taking time from his campaign to start a back-to-work program for porn stars whose girl parts have suffered irreparable damage. You’re the best, buddy.

See you in the lobby, kids…

    CEEETEEEE got Hooked!!! So fun! ^_^

  2. I like meeting new voices here but I REALLY like it when you hook people I already know. It makes me feel like I sit at the cool kids table in the cafeteria. He’s a generous dude. He loans out his real estate to other bloggers.

    Zombies who don’t feed on the living is right up there with vampires who can walk in the daylight. Fucking bullshit, man.

  3. Love TD and have been hooked on him for awhile. What a great post, great daddy and fantastic blogger dude. Also very glad to know that I’m not the only one who gets a cramp at the most inopportune time (big toe!)

  4. Veronica says:

    Oh, not the best time to get a cramp, and really, zombies who don’t eat people. That is bullshit.

  5. Twindaddy says:

    Right? Are they really zombies if they’re not eating people?

  6. Twindaddy says:

    Thanks for the love, Hook. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside right now. Of course, that could be because I’ve already exceeded my coffeh limit…

  7. Twindaddy says:

    Reblogged this on Stuphblog and commented:
    I’ve been Hooked! It’s time to head north of the border to see everyone’s favorite Canadian bellman interview everyone’s favorite stormtrooper. Wait, I am your favorite stormtrooper, right? You guys wouldn’t cheat on me, would you? Great, now I have anxiety. Christ….

    Anyway, if you’re not already, you are commanded to follow The Hook so you can get a comedic peek behind the curtain of a bellman’s life in a popular vacation spot.

    That’s all this trooper has for you today. Well, until my next post comes out, anyhow…

  8. TD is the best. So true, he’s a real blogger’s blogger. 🙂

  9. LauraALord says:

    Absolutely love this. Way to go TD!

  10. Happy to see everyone’s favourite storm trooper here. (I heard somewhere he was everyone’s favourite). I’d say he is pretty awesome with a Janis Joplin seal of approval.

    • Twindaddy says:

      You can take a little piece of my heart, but don’t touch my SoCo. And frankly, I think I’m everyone’s favorite trooper by default. I haven’t run into any other troopers in the ‘sphere. But I’m still claiming the title regardless.

  11. Eva says:

    Hahahaha! Oh, TD. You crack me up and cheer me up.

  12. List of X says:

    I think that zombies who don’t eat people would be on par with stormtroopers who raise kids: highly unorthodox but why the hell not?

  13. Mental Mama says:

    “Oh shit, cramp!” Wow, even more of a romantic than I suspected. 😉

  14. Great interview! I’ve actually heard of Twindaddy before, now I may have to go see what the fuss is about after the inspiring answers!

  15. The Cutter says:

    You gotta power through those cramps. No pain, no gain, amirite?

  16. Cracked up at “Oh shit. Cramp!” Hubby and I have been there… Sex isn’t always the way they portray it in the movies, that’s for sure…LOL!

  17. Ned's Blog says:

    I’ve been an admirer of Twindaddy for a while, as a father and blogger, and his point of view on non-brain-eating zombies has taken it to the next level. I mean seriously, zombies who don’t eat brains is like having music artists who can’t really sing… oh wait, bad example. Regardless, it was great to see Twindaddy here. I’d go on, but I’m getting a cramp in my finger…

  18. Chantel says:

    I have only been following Twindaddy for a little more than a week now but I can say he is the nicest blogger I have met! Well …he one of the few that have responded to my posts… I’m pretty easy.

  19. djmatticus says:

    You aren’t 18 anymore, buddy, you’ve got to stretch before you exercise! It’s good for everyone involved.

  20. Twindaddy is cool. Zombies gotta chomp and vampires have to have bloody fangs – no wimpy platelet juice bars! Great interview, Hook

  21. bardictale says:

    Walking dead that don’t feast on brains? That’s like vampires who are misunderstood teenagers, or werewolves who don’t need to shift on a full moon.
    Next it’ll be ghosts that need to eat hamburgers or they’ll starve to death.

  22. nancytex2013 says:

    Wait, what? Beer is vile?? Pop is vile (soda to you ‘Mericans). Icy cold beer on a hot day = magnificent!

    Also, your muscle cramp made me snort. + You do realize that vigorous, muscle-cramp inducing sex would qualify as a physical challenge against your monthly goals, right? (Since I know you don’t like push-ups…)

  23. samara says:

    Great 5×5 Hook! TwinDaddy!

    I’m with everyone else here. Non-human eating zombies are bullshit.

    And for goodness sake, have a banana before handf! (No that’s not #sexytimes code, potassium is good for cramping). Drink a Gatorade. Electrolytes. Do something!

    • Twindaddy says:

      Sex is mostly a spontaneous act, dear. I mean, wouldn’t eat be a bit of a turn off for you if your partner said, “Hold please. I must go devour a banana before I devour you.”?

      • samara says:

        I’d rather a little advance planning than watching my man be brought down by a FOOT CRAMP!! hahahaha


      • Twindaddy says:

        Hey! It was a leg cramp not a foot cramp! And for the record, I finished and so did she. So, there!

      • samara says:

        There’s a comedian who does a really funny bit about older guys (SO not you) getting derailed in bed by little things.

        “ow, ow, OW, baby! Can’t you see my damn toe is caught in the sheet!”

      • Twindaddy says:

        Eh, I’m old enough, but I can at least say I’ve never been foiled by the sheets.

  24. When you told me you were going to be hanging out with a hooker today, I thought you meant something else….

  25. Julie says:

    Can you send your kids over to take out my trash and clean my dishes?? My kids just aren’t doing it right. 😉

    • Twindaddy says:

      I never said mine did it right. After getting on them about 3 or 4 times it’s done acceptably well, but that’s still better than doing it myself.

  26. Hook – thanks for helping me find my way around the blogosphere, avoiding junk!! Nice to meet your acquaintance, TD. I hate cramps…the ones I get in my toes during sex are the worst. I hear it’s tied to being dehydrated (yes, Hook…you are right that hydration is key!).

  27. benzeknees says:

    Ahhh, Twindaddy – how unfortunate for you with the cramp! Loved how you describe watching your kids grow up. I too was always amazed when I’d look over at my daughter & see a whole person who was once just this bundle of need.

  28. bfg666 says:

    “Blogger/writer/poet/dude” is probably the coolest definition ever!

  29. maurnas says:

    Nothing kills the mood like sex cramps…

  30. curvyroads says:

    Better late than never…eclectic interview questions, as always, Hook!

    And Twindaddy IS cool.
