It is time to learn everything you never needed to know, as Arune Singh is interviewed exclusively by Arune.Com.
Q: So What Is Your Website About?
Well it IS called Arune.Com, so y’know, it’s about me.
Q: What’s an Arune?
Arune is a Hindu name and means “sun” in regards to warmth and can also be interpreted as bright, this time in regards to intelligence. Singh means “lion” in regards to bravery and unyeilding will. So I’m like the yellow Voltron lion or something. Or maybe I’m powered by the sun like Superman.
Q: Where do we find you, in times of need or boredom?
When danger is near or there is a cry for help, you’ll predictably find me at the scene, capes & tights not included. If Tom Welling (Smallville) doesn’t need them to show off his pecs, neither do I!
Q: So what do you do with your life?
I’m a avid weightlifter and love to work out whenever I get the chance. I write a lot- from music to scripts to stories- and I’m hoping to publish some of it this year. I’ve been involved in martial arts for 10yrs and hope to find a new dojo to satisfy that love. I also think it is pretty obvious I love comic books- Superman and GTO in particular. I just like being creative. And I want to make a difference, everday, because if I don’t, then what am I doing? Being a Firefighter, Doctor or Police Officer would be great.
Q: What are your favorite colors?
Assuming someone is crazy enough to care, (in order) they are red, blue and black.
Q: What are your favorite movies?
Let’s see: Forrest Gump, Superman Returns, Hotel Rwanda, Top Gun, American Beauty, Good Will Hunting, American History X, the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Fight Club, L.A Confidential, Transformers: The Movie, and The Spider-Man series of films.
Q: So then you watch television as well, right?
Yes I do- not a lot, but I love what I watch. The Shield, Battlestar Galactica, House M.D, Rescue Me, 24, Veronica Mars, and Arrested Development are great shows for character and entertainment. Coupling (UK Version), All My Children and Justice League are for fun and are good lessons on how to really write. Power Rangers is dear to my heart for some reason. Anything on BBC America is at least entertaining.
Q: Any music preferences?
I like anything but hardcore electronic music and gangster rap- yeah, they are very different types of music, but I dislike both. I like John Mayer, Maroon 5, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Kanye West.
Q: Favorite books?
That’s easy: Macbeth by William Shakespeare, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, Fight Club by Chuck Paluhnick & The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand & Obasan by Joy Kogawa. If you’re talking COMIC BOOKS, then GTO, published by Tokyopop, is my definite favorite.
Q: Does you have any memorable parting words?
Not really. Just that if you live a life you love and be kind to people, it’ll all work out for the best.
Q: Any weird things about yourself, Arune?
Have you read any of this?
