Today we are happy to welcome Robert J. Boumis to our team! And, as is tradition here at The Silver Petticoat Review, our dear Robert has agreed to take the Petticoat Personality Test. So please give a warm welcome to Robert and take a peak below to get to know a little bit about him.

What is your favorite book, movie and/or TV show?

My two favorite novels are probably Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers and Carl Sagan’s Contact. In both cases, I love both the original novels and movie adaptations. In the case of Starship Troopers, the movie and book are wildly different, but I love both for very different reasons.

What movie/TV show or book character turns you on?

Well, I don’t really react that way to fictional characters for the most part. But if I was in-universe, either Eleanor “Ellie” Arroway of Contact or Kara Thrace of the re-imagined Battle Star Galatica would be close to my type. Granted, with my luck some kind of cosmic paperwork hiccup would pair me up with the wrong Starbuck.

What character turns you off?

I found Amy Pond to be a great disappointment. I mean, Rory waited millennia for her, and she gives up on him after a few decades/years depending on the timeline?

Is there any kind of music or any songs that inspire you?

Danny is Lonely” by Dido Armstrong or “The Ballad of Roger Young,” by Frank Loesser have personal meaning for me. Also, I heard them at that age when you’re most suggestible to music.

Is there any movie or TV couple past or present that you obsess over?

[BSG Spoiler alert]: I really wanted Kara and Lee to make it.

If you could be or live as any character (book/movie/TV show) who would you choose?

I would love to be Wolverine from the X-Men franchise, but not for the obvious reasons. I don’t really care about the super-badass indestructibility so much as the long lifespan. Granted, I would almost certainly use this power in very boring ways, like mastering languages and accumulating degrees in a variety of subjects. I guess I’d be the most boring member of that particular superhero team, and that’s saying something when you’re competing with someone like Cipher for the title.

What are you reading and/or watching right now?

I just finished Space: Above and Beyond, The Attack on Titian, and The Count of Monty Cristo. I’m also working my way through a stack of allegedly-nonfiction UFO books.

Any guilty pleasures?

Among my vices, I count both a sweet tooth and an unfortunate tendency to marathon series on Netflix when I should be practicing my German or writing.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

I’d like to be an odontocete cetacean; I don’t really care what species exactly. I’d get to swim all day, have echolocation, and be smart enough to appreciate it. In a related story, I find it hilarious that on the Wikipedia page listing all known whales and dolphins, for every species that lacked a picture, someone wrote [cetacean needed].

If you could see one book adapted into a movie or TV show what would it be?

The Big U would be amazing as a movie or TV show. Too bad the author hates it. Funny story, Neal Stephenson disliked it enough that he got it out of print. Then he realized that people were paying hand-over-fist for secondhand copies, and allowed additional printings. He did this because as much as he hated the novel, he hated the idea of people paying too much for it slightly more.



Here at The Silver Petticoat Review we have what we call the Petticoat Personality Test . It’s a series of pop culture questions meant to reveal fun tidbits about the interviewee while also working as a promotional tool for mainstream and indie projects. If you’re interested in taking  it, send us a message and we’ll send you our Petticoat Personality Test Vault with lots of fun questions to choose from.
