9. Let's say you were offered an acting gig...but not as Justin. Would you do it? Even if you had to "hang up" Alaska for a bit?

No.  But I am now.  I think everyone should be.  

11. How does it feel knowing that you are responsible for making many people smile, laugh, and forget their troubles on a daily basis?

I'm glad I can help.  But don't forget your troubles-- use them to make good art.  

12. Of all the places you've gotten to travel so far, what was your favorite and why?

Here and now.  I can't decide which is my favorite-- I just try to stay in the present moment and enjoy it all.

13. Are your wigs human or synthetic? Why did you change your signature platinum wig?

This is my hair.  I don't wear wigs.   I had to dye my hair for an acting role but it has grown back in its natural platinum hue.  I take my vitamins and my hair grows very quickly.  

14. Are you returning to Australia anytime soon?

  1. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
