Apparently when the beefcake in question is Canadian (or French or British) you can expect them to teach you the proper spelling of certain words. That or they just have a never-ending love of the letter U. As is the case with Catero Revolution.
Difficult, as I imagine all good talent is, he was not very forthcoming. I think he was hiding behind a false modest image when he sent me back his answers entitled '/me is not beefcake-worthy'. In addition, Phoenix was kind enough to fork over a couple more pics because Cat was miserly and only sent one. But he was more than generous with words, so we forgive him :)
The man, the myth, the legend... Catero Revolution...
I can't pick just one. My favourite COLOURS are blue and black.
*Favorite animal and why?
I love monkeys because they are very comical (though sometimes mean to each other).
I'm not trying to be philosophical with my response, AT ALL.
They throw poo at each other when mad, trade bananas and other fruit for sexual favours, swing from trees, make amusing noises and funny faces, and tease each other - and tons of other entertaining antics. When you go to the zoo, 9 times out of 10 the monkeys are having sex … and they aren't disturbed in the least that you're watching. Bonobos even greet each other with oral sex and dick fencing (can I say dick on your blog?). I mean, c'mon. You can't get any better than that. We can learn a lot from monkeys!
They kind of remind us of our lost selves – before we became civilized with our Stabucks venti frappucinos and low-rise-boot-cut-five pocket-signature stitched-zip fly jeans we used to fling feces, cat-call through the forest and have community-wide sex orgies.
*What factors did you take into consideration when creating your av?
I took a couple things into consideration.
Realistic proportions. I didn't want my avatar to have an imposing "ent" height and I wanted the figure, overall, to be balanced - like the Vitruvian Man. Just an average build; he doesn't look like an over-muscled creatine fiend and he's not gaunt and underfed. You won't find Catero working out at the gym. He likes eating out, maybe engages in the occasional long walk around his neighbourhood. And likes drinking rum (hence the little paunch). Ordinary, general attractiveness.
Adaptability. As someone who comes from a mixed heritage it was important to me to have a shape that looked good with a variety of skins (and hairs) and was able to achieve a different ethnic/cultural look without too much tweaking.
Attire: As for how I dress my av, he tends to be casual - jeans and a tee. Relaxed and urban. I'm not sophisticated.
*What's the most embarrassing thing you've done for a girl/guy/furry?
The most embarrassing thing? I don't have many embarrassing. I'm goofy anyways, so, what's possibly embarrassing for others is just every day for me. I hope that's not disappointing to your readers.
*What's the last book you read?
The last book I read was called 'The Inheritance of Loss' - the second book of one of my favourite authors, Kiran Desai. It's set in 1980s India in a small village and focuses on an anti-social and curmudgeonly judge living out his mundane retirement. He lives with his orphaned grand-daughter and a cook – all of them undergoing highs and lows, struggling with their place in life, coming to terms with their pasts and who they are, who their society wants them to be and who they themselves want to be mixed in with all that. Death, loss, love - all common themes. Their lives are also disrupted by civil unrest in the midst of it. It has it's funny moments. But is really insightful as well. Desai has a way of holistically developing her characters.
I would encourage everyone to read her first book, 'Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard'. Totally hilarious.
*What's a movie you could watch over and over?
I am a film-o-phile. I love movies and there's no way I could pick just one.
If you allow a short list, I can say: 300, A Christmas Story, Dead Presidents, The Fifth Element, Fire in the Sky, Hellboy, Monsoon Wedding, Muriel's Wedding, O Brother Where Art Thou, Rushmore, Signs, Sin City, The Birds, The Color Purple, The Dark Knight, The Matrix (only the first one), The Pursuit of Happyness, The Rundown, The Shining, The Truman Show, Trading Places ... to name a few. There's many more.
*You could never date someone who _____________ (fill in the blank).
Was stupid. Hands down. No negotiating.
*If you could trade SLives with one other avatar for a day, who would it be?
I don't think I'd trade places with anyone - as much as I admire certain individuals and what they do in-world. And that's my final answer.
*Who would you most like to collaborate with in SL?
Naming names would just be limiting myself. I'd just like to collab with encouraging/supportive/chill people in further developing opportunities to continue writing and project consultation. Product development and avatar styling. I've worked on a few projects of that nature in the past, and it was fun.
*Favorite thing to do in SL?
My favourite thing to do in SL used to be running around in my underwear. Now, its spending time with friends and writing (although, my writing has kind of fallen off as of late).
And oooh he has stipulations:
Catero Revolution: I am not going to look all oil-slicked and fabio-esque like some of your beefcakes
Rosie Shark frowns
Rosie Shark: pffft
Rosie Shark: notice they went downhill when jelly started picking them :P
Catero Revolution: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
