Who Am I ?

PJ LIGUORI

May 2011


1: Who am I?

I am PJ.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I’m a UCA student studying Digital Film and Screen Arts, and I’m a Youtube Partner. I’m currently making a film about giant fish in suits attempting to repossess my house. I’m not joking.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I’m from a small village in a city called Peterborough, as for where I’m going…hopefully up, up is usually the way forward. Or is forward the way up?

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Shigeru Miyamoto is the bomb.

5: What book is your bible?

I’m a big fan of the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley. I can’t say I have a “grown up’s” book that guides my life. I’m not big on reading. I think I’m a bit dyslexic.

6: What are some things you love?  And some things you hate?

Love: drawing, freedom, rice. Hate: wet socks.

7: What is your raison d’être?

To make things that other people can look at and go “Ha, cool!”

8: What is your favorite color?

Green.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Scott Pilgrim…or maybe Batman. I’m not too big on super powers. I prefer average guys being badass.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

Nintendo World Store. I already know that and I’ve not even been yet.

11: What turns you on?

Northern Irish accents.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Are you happy?

PJ Liguori does “internet”, as the cool kids might say. Companies send Liguori to different countries around the world to make videos, but he also makes videos for his subscribers on Youtube, tweets for his followers on Twitter, and drawings for his fans on Tumblr. Although he is known in some arenas as “KickThePJ”, only one person has come up to him in the streets and kicked him, and awkwardness ensued.
