Big thanks to our friend Linda Kay from P.S. I Love You for pointing out the existence of this animated version of “The Purloined Letter” by Edgar Allan Poe, narrated by Bronson. Fantastic as always.
With the help of some really great Bronson fans, and on behalf of all Bronson fans, this is our little birthday gift to you, B.
PS: A big thanks to Silverfang, Alyce, Katalin, Whitney, Brenda and Stephanie for their lovely contribution to this video.
This is the latest batch of questions Bronson kindly answered for us!
Q: What kind of car do you have?
A: I think it’s a Ford.
Q: How do you like PA?
A: One year I spent $11,000 removing garbage that had been dumped in the woods visible from the main street over many years…old car bodies and the like. When it was pristinely beautiful, I was standing there admiring it and somebody said to me, “I really miss the way it was.” I’m not quite sure what thought process is going on there.
Q: What do you do in your spare time, if you have any?
A: I write. And I sketch what I’m going to do architecturally.
Q: What do you think of our president?
A: I think he’s doing his best, which is all any of us can ever do.
Q: Where do you like to eat?
A: At my mother’s kitchen table.
Q: Have you ever been to Las Vegas?
A: Yes. It spooks me.
Q: What do you usually do for holidays?
A: Visit with my siblings and mother and have a great time.
Q: What are your favorite, and least favorite, types of bread?
A: Raisin cinnamon and the kind that’s got so many grains and flax things in it that it tastes like a bog. When I was at Yale they used to make bread stuffed with broccoli, garlic and cheese and it rocked my mind.
Q: Is your favourite movie still The Wizard of Oz? A: Yes. But I’m not sure it can really be classified as a ‘movie’ any more. It’s the childhood of my entire generation.
Q: If not, what is it?
A: I’m not sure.
Q: Do you have a favourite song?
A: Yes, but it changes.
Q: If you were not an actor, what would you like to be?
A: Andrea Palladio.

The results of the Audible.com tournament of Audiobooks weren’t exactly what most of us expected, to say the least.
Despite the fact that Matterhorn lead the voting for the majority of the final round, and was ahead of Genghis Khan by a whopping 16% only two hours before the end of the tournament, Audible decided that both finalists should win.
So, for all practical purposes, Matterhorn is one of the winners of the Audible.com’s Tournament of Audiobooks and we would like to thank everyone who voted and helped to make this happen, you were fantastic! 🙂
We have wonderful news to all of you who would love to have a question answered by Bronson!
The Q&As are back and Bronson already answered a big batch of questions sent by visitors of the site over the past year!

Q&As with Bronson – 04/17/11
Q: What was the best advice received that has helped you cope with the resounding success of a hit show?
A: I did a music video with the Pointer Sisters five minutes before Beverly Hills Cop came out and made me pretty famous. They sat me down in their trailer and said, “Just be yourself.” They were awesome…unfortunately, I didn’t then know who ‘myself’ was, but I did my best to find out.
Q: Has your outlook on the changed/evolved over the years?
A:Well, I’ve always hated it. Now I laugh at it, and get queasy if I look too close. Gaga? Sheen? Snooki? Bucket, please.
Q: What TV shows would you like to appear in?
A: I haven’t had a TV in years. No idea what’s on.
Q: What is your favorite show on TV today?
A: Turner Classic Movies.
Q: Do you agree that TV is not as good as it used to be?
A: I never watched it then, either.
Q: Do you still have the Myposian tuxedo and Dimitri, the stuffed sheep doll?
A: I have most of the clothes…not sure if I have the tuxedo. Not sure where Dimitri is.
Q: What kind of cellphone do you have?
A: I forget, but it’s not cool.
Q: Do you ever play video games?
A: Never have played one ever.
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: No, but I hanker after everyone’s dogs. Love ’em.
Q: Do you ever shop at Walmart?
Q: What’s your favorite store?
A: Wherever 18th & early 19th c. painted antiques are sold, if no one has ever tried to improve them in the least.
Q: How did you like the book Courting Disaster? I’m reading it now!
A: It scared me and made me mad. I became a foaming-at-the-mouth arch-conservative for a week. My sister was thrilled.
Q: How many languages do you speak?
A: English, Myposian, and the one that’s in my book, which is a secret.
