FBLA 20 Questions: David Seidman

After a year, FBLA has revised our insightful yet banal questions. David Seidman comics writer, consultant, and publicist volunteered to test drive the new version.

1. What’s the first thing(s) you read in the morning?
My e-mail, followed by MediaBistro’s job listings and home page. (Honest. I’m not just sucking up.) Then it’s on to The Beat, Heidi MacDonald’s comics-related news column at Publishers Weekly, the blogs of my colleaguesPeter David and Mark Evanier, the day’s Doonesbury strip, and often the political blog Crooks and Liars.

2. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure website? There are two: Defamer and Go Fug Yourself. I don’t usually like celebrity gossip or fashion bitchery, but they’re both funny. And theyusually have pictures of good-looking women.

3. What job do you fantasize about having? I’m usually too busy for much fantasizing (about jobs, that is), but the most fun for me is conceiving and developing new projects, particularly in publishing. Put me in that job and surround me with people who want to do the same thing and have the talent to accomplish it, and I’m a happy guy.

4. Last movie you saw? All the way through? (I catch a lot of bits and pieces on TV.) Probably the HBO documentary ALIVE DAY MEMORIES.

5. Last book you read? 300 by Frank Miller.
