The Super 8 Meme for Brad Andersohn

By
Education & Training with Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty

What the heck is the Super 8 Meme? You've probably been seeing these everywhere on AR lately. Well I finally got suckered into it. I thought I might be able to fly low enough to miss the darts being thrown around the community, but NO! Carol Smith and Duane Marlink just had to peg stick me!! (LOL) The Super 8 Meme is answering 8 preselected questions, and then selecting 8 other members to do the same.

1. Who's your favorite musical artist?

I grew up with the music of the 80's, and had many musical influences. If I have to pick just one artist, I couldn't! Since the question is not favorite bands, I would have to say it's a tie between Eddie Van Halen, Neal Schon, Carlos Santana, and Joe Satriani. They are all local artists from my area who inspired me to play guitar. Many of their songs are tied to very special moments and memories.

2. Who is your favorite artist?
The painter of light. Thomas Kincade followed closely by Vincent Van Gogh. When I was just 10 years old, my mother took me to see Vincents' art on display in San Francisco. I was facsinated by the stories, the paintings, (my favorite "The Potato Eaters" ) it was most definitely a time and place in life I will never forget.




3. Who is your favorite blogger?

This is the toughest one of all, I have soooo many. I'll have to select Jeff Turner for this one. The guy is a genious. There is nothing he can't do when it comes to technology. He's been a great mentor to me on and off the rain. Jeff is one of the most knowledgeable Techie's and Bloggers I know. He's also a good friend.



4. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would it be
and what is the most interesting thing about them? I'd want to meet Elvis Presley. Why? He's the KING of Rock and Roll!! We have a lot in common Elvis and I, we could have been great friends. The most interesting thing about Elvis was his life-style and his life story.

5. What did you want to be when you grew up?


A Blogger on ActiveRain! In my youth (age 5-12), I wanted to be a baseball player, (age 12-24) I wanted to be a Rock Star, (age 24-36) I wanted to be a Martial Artist in the movies, (age 36 - present) now when I grow up, I just want to be a good Dad, Husband, and make a difference in the world.



6. What is the most interesting piece of trivia you know?
I have seen and learned some crazy things in my day, but one of the most interesting trivia facts I know was discovered while in the title and escrow business for many years. Did you know that the transaction files are kept for 7 years, then they are shredded, recycled, converted back to sheet rock, and placed right back into homes? Somehow I found that a bit ironic and comical.




7. If you could live in any point in history what would it be and why?
The late 1800's. I'd like to see what it must have been like to whittle on the porch. To ride into town on Horeseback and visit the local saloon. To exist in a time where morals and values meant everything. Mostly, to just enjoy life when there was no television, computers or GAS PRICES!





8. What is the most interesting job you have ever held?

I'd have to say it's the one I have RIGHT NOW! Seriously, here I am typing the answers to a MeMe tag, and my employer is not going to reprimand or write me up for Blogging! I love working for ActiveRain and building relationships with many of the members here. This is definitely the MOST interesting Jobs I have ever held or been blessed with! :-))

Here's my Super 8 Selection to keep the "Viral Tag" going:

WOW Brad!  Great Super MeMe!  I absoloutely LOVE Van Halen, Van Gogh is in my Super MeMe (that is in the works), I met Elvis when I was VERY young and my job now is ALWAYS stimulating--with no transaction EVER being the same as another!!

Debe - Looks like we have a few things in common! OMG! You got to meet Elvis? WOW! That's too awesome!!!! Must have been incredible.  

Coming from the title and escrow world, I'll tell you, I couldn't agree more that no 2 transactions are ever the same!  I could tell you some stories.  :-O

Jason - if you don't mess with me, my feelings will be hurt.  I'm not a violent guy, I just float like a butterfly, and my name starts with a "B"!  lol~   So bring it on my friend...  Thanks Jason.

Now I'm off to read YOUR meme, I know you got tagged, but did you step up for the challenge?  :-)

That's a cool photo of you doin the riffs...I tried to play also...i was more the lead singer. I lost those hgh notes back in high school. I wanted to be a pro ball player too...I stil did in my late 20's but had to settle for the bar league:) Too many injuries and too many beers!

Neal - I didn't know you were a singer and in the bar leagues... I was just a singer in the bar! Seems odd we never bumped into each other..  lol~ :-)

Honestly Brad, you are so cool. FYI, "I" actually met Elvis and spent an afternoon/evening at his home in Bel Air - along with about 50 other women. ;-) He came over and sat by me, and we visited. He was such a gentleman and very sweet. I LOVE Kinkaid....and in fact have the lithograph, "Clocktower Cottage" hanging over my piano. I've yet to write one of these (after several invites) and may not get around to it, but am enjoying reading about you and the others. ;-)

Hi Teri - you met Elvis too? Man, I wish I could have been there. I hope you'll take the time to do your meme, myself and others here would love to read it.  I bet you have some very fascinating favorites and cool trivia to share.  So many of us here have so much in common. I'd rather read these meme's then write them, so I understand, now go write yours ok?  :-))

Brad- I've met Elvis. I was young though and we had a three sentence interaction about his horse is all. My mom and my sister went to events at Graceland... Memphis wasn't that big of a town- so this sort of thing could happen.

Hey Jer, it's an ARIA PRO II, I have had that bass for over 20 years now, I use it on all my home studio recordings. Great tone and easy on the fingers!  :-)
