Interview By: Marh
So how did you find Kongregate: So my friend was playing a game on teh interwebs, and I thought it looked like fun. I googled the game (Generic Tower Defense, iirc. Was not, in fact, very fun). Google brought me to kong, which was badass, and like 3 days after that I had an account.
Who were some of your first friends on here: Phoenix00017 was my first friend, I think. After that, I think Blarlack and then I don’t know who else.
Rooms you like: Well, Ninja Chat always and forever. But sometimes I chill in FtD when it’s late (like 5am) and Ninja Chat is dead.
What sneaky tactic did you use to get modded: Well, I wanted to be a mod when I first got on the site. It was like that whole "Oooo! Shiny! mentality that pretty much everyone seems to have. I sent Phoenix a few pestering whispers back in January of 08, and he gave me some advice, which I took to heart. Maybe 2 months after that, I stopped trying, and started just enjoying the site for what it was, and that was awesome. Then, back in October, Confuzzledmaniac offered to nominate me, and I asked him to do it at some random date in the future, but then he told me anyway once he had nominated me. And then he told me that I got rejected, and I was a little bit depressed, but mostly mad at myself, because it meant that I wasn’t being the best person I could be. At this point, I genuinely cared about the community, though, which was why I just swallowed my resentment and kept on keeping on. Then I got an IM client, stopped trolling in chat and got modded.
What would you say has been your most memorable moment as a moderator: That’s not fair, I’ve only been a mod for 2 months! I think it would be right after I got modded, when Phoenix asked if any of us had any questions, and I asked “How is baby formed?”
Bono or Jon Bon Jovi: The goddamned batman
Any mods that have a had a big influence on you as a mod: Definitely Phoenix and Blarlack, and awalters to a slightly lesser extent
Moneyz or famez: Money. I’m not big on the whole “people paying attention to me” thing.
Your in a room, and there is a spontaneous troll attack, your first move: Attempt to spontanteously combust. When that fails, I would probably use a crap-ton of ellipses (which I totally stole from blarlack)
So… uh… where did you get “fuzzybacon”: Well, I can’t say for certain, to be quite honest. I think I came up with it when I was coming home from school in like 3rd grade (9 years old), and I said “I am fuzzybaconpants!” for some reason that I really don’t fully understand. That became my “alter ego that’s exactly the same as me but less of an ass”, and then, about 4 years later, I dropped the “pants” because it wouldn’t fit in the entry field.
What would you say is your favorite thing to argue about in the Serious Discussion forums: Hmmm… Well, for a long time, it was religion, but now I spend almost as much time calling the trolls idiots as actually making statements about my views in those topics (I literally spent 2 hours doing pretty much nothing but that this morning). It kinda feels like I’ve said everything that can be said about that. So gay rights. I kind of feel like that’s the movement that will define my generation, in the same way that Civil Rights defined the baby boomers in the 1960’s and 70’s
GIRUGAMESH? NO U
Answer this question in the most ridiculous way possible: Lol. Actually, change my answer to “Cthulhu calls for you”. It’ll be more stoopid. All my long, serious answers desperately need some stupid to lighten the mood.
Any last notes: Eva! Can I stack rod’s sad-ass? Dork cats in a cave?
