Ethan Graham: First question as always, what is your favorite color and why?
Gabby Bruckner: Black, because it’s a mixture of all the colors.
EG: That’s a good reason, I can dig it. Next question, as I like to follow that one up with, is what is your quest?
GB: I just want to be a happy person. I don’t really have a quest.
EG: Who is your favorite superhero and why?
GB: Does it have to be a superhero or can it be a villain as well? Because I really want to say Catwoman. She’s so badass and doesn’t need anyone but her cat. She’s definitely one of the best Batman villains, even though she’s not really even a villain, as they’re more like love interests.
EG: I can understand that, no one’s gone down that route, with the slightly ambiguous characters, but I like it. What is your favorite childhood cartoon?
GB: I really liked Spongebob Squarepants, and I still do. I watch the show often. It has a lot of adult innuendos that I didn’t get as a kid but now I do. I am like, “Wow, why did my mom let me watch that?” Because I didn’t get it.
EG: They put those in for the parents who have to watch it with their kids.
GB: Yeah, so they’re not bored out of their minds.
EG: Which is why it’s so much better to watch it when you’re older and then you understand everything. Now we’re moving away from the fun ones. What would you do if you were the one survivor of a plane crash?
GB: I would create an artificial insemination plant where I create sperm to keep the human race going.
EG: Well that is a lot of detail. No one else really went into it that deep. What is your favorite 90’s jam?
GB: It’s so hard. That is like you’re asking me what my favorite abstract concept is.
EG: What’s the song that when you hear it, you just want to get up on the dance floor?
GB: The first one that comes to mind is a song from the Spice Girls.
EG: If you’re were on a desert island and could only have three things, what would they be?
GB: There are so many survival questions.
EG: I’m telling you that I stole a lot of these from job interviews.
GB: A plane to get off the island or a boat to get me off. I’d want to take somebody with me but I wouldn’t want that person to get stuck with me, like sorry about that mom. Have you read Hatchet? I’d bring a hatchet, and a tarp, I’ve watched a lot of Lost.
EG: Well those are all very practical things.Next one is what do you want to be when you grow up?
GB: Uhhh… I want to be happy, I don’t want to say help people, well everyone wants to help people. I want to travel back and time and invent that. Or teleportation I want to invent all those big things to make people happy.
EG: What would be the title to your autobiography?
GB: I Don’t Know How to Title Autobiographies: A Memoir.
EG: I love it! That’s a good one. Last question, what is your favorite Pokemon?
GB: Jigglypuff. I don’t know anything about Pokemon. Is that a Pokemon?
