Beefcake: Ben Vanguard (Regurgitated)

Some of these recalled beefcakes were never given the opportunity to introduce themselves properly with a meat n' greet, but we're trying to rectify that now! Haha! I was wondering why they're names didn't just pop up when I started typing labels... well it's cuz they were only sidebarred before!

Here in all his SL Men glory... Ben Vanguard... we proclaim him "Geek for a Day"!

*Favorite Color:
Orange, and black, and white, and purple. Oh, wait! Red too!

*SL Rezzday:
10.18.2006 I'm not so old, but I feel old sometimes.

*Favorite animal and why?
Minks. For the contrast between their brutality and aggressiveness, and the softness of their fur.

*What factors did you take into consideration when creating your av?
Keep human proportions -- fantasy ones, but still human. Then I tried to work my shape to fit male clothing's textures without stretching (or shrinking) them too much, to show the best that I can on my blog ( the wonderful content that designers offer us!

*What's the most embarrassing thing you've done for a girl/guy/furry?
Well, nothing I could remember!

*What's the last book you read?
I read many books at the same time, jumping from one to another. For now, I have: "The French Revolution, a very short introduction," in English, to improve my language skills (god knows i need it!), and because a dear friend asked my advice for such a book, "Okinawa" a book about the healthy diet that inhabitants of a Japanese island have followed for centuries, full of recipes (I love to cook), and "Funky Business" by two Swedish management gurus, explaining why "human" has to be placed at the center of every business in order to have success ;-)

*What's a movie you could watch over and over?
"The Unbelievable Truth" by Hal Hartley; "Psycho" by, well, you know; and the whole filmography of Fran├žois Truffaut.

*You could never date someone who _____________ (fill in the blank)
opens his mouth just to show what a smartass he is!

*If you could trade slives with one other avatar for a day, who would it be?
A great builder! One who can create a whole universe with terraforming tools, prims and textures. I admire them so much, and I wish I had more sltime to actually learn to build, I mean it! Oh, I'm blown away by scripters as well. I'm such a non-geek. I would like to be a geek for a day!

*Who would you most like to collaborate with in sl?
With anyone on any project for which I have a passion. I love team work! What is funny is I'm more of a loner in SL than in real life!

*Favorite thing to do in SL?
Chatting with my friends, I'm still in SL for them. Running my blog, which is more than time consuming but still cool after all this time!

Ben rocks! I never met him in person, but exchanged a few IM's with him, and he was super friendly and funny and helpful. Thumbs up for chosing him!

Ben's taught me so much about how to make clothes on SL look good, and is a great guy all around.

Thanks for featuring him here! Great interview. :)
