An interview with Moorsy (Kong Moderator)!
Interview No. 14
Interview by: Thomas
Interview Date: Saturday, May 16th, 2015
Welcome James! Today’s guest is a moderator of the chatroom THE!
Thomas: I hope you’re having a fantastic time today!
James: I’ve just woken up. I haven’t really done anything yet, but I hope I’ll have a fantastic time answering these questions! I hope you’re having a lovely day, and that extends to you, oh enigmatic reader. I’m watching you. I know you’re there. Say hi or something… Please?
Q: What is one thing you that you feel needs improvement within you life?
A: Just one thing? I was going to pick self-deprecation, but that gets a few laughs, and I’m not sure which way the “improvement” would go… so I’d say the main thing that needs a major improvement would be my ability (or lack thereof) to answer interview questions. That or the overabundance of commas in anything I write.
Q: How do you handle stressful situations?
A: I don’t; I generally just ignore everything stressful. Of course, if trying to ignore it only makes it worse, then I’ll do something about it. But that’s rarely necessary.
Q: Why did you join Kongregate?
A: Waaaay back when, I was playing Frantic on some other, probably lesser, site. Then I found (somehow) that if I played it here, I’d get badges to show off my ability to play a game. It’s not really an epic tale of wonder and woe, but hey… Also, looking through my earned badges, I didn’t get Frantic’s ones first, so that doesn’t add much credence to my story.
Q: If you could relive the last five years of your life, what would you change?
A: I wouldn’t change a thing. The stuff that’s happened (good or bad), or that I’ve done (likewise), have shaped me as a person. I like who I am now. I’d only change my decision to relive those five years at the end, because I don’t want to be trapped in an infinite loop and I want to make a plot hole that can be fixed in the sequel to this story.
Q: What is your biggest weakness?
A: I’m really, REALLY bad at picking up heavy things. Houses? No. Cars? No. Boats? No. Anything heavier than a small cat? Probably not. I’m really weak. I tend to think my way out of heavy lifting. Or use some form of pulley system.
Q: Where do you view yourself in the next five years?
A: I usually view future me in a handy dandy crystal ball. It’s foggy (that either means it IS foggy or I have a bad connection). I’m wearing dark clothing. I appear to be holding a briefcase or a handbag with something big and rectangular in it. I’ve just made eye contact. He’s noticed me. Abort! Abort!
Q: What motivates you to get up in the morning?
A: My alarm. If I don’t get up, it’ll keep being noisy. Then, since I’m up anyway, I might as well be productive or go on Kong. I tend to go for the latter.
Q: What is your favorite hobby?
A: My favorite hobby is annoying people on the internet. Very closely followed by video games. So, I guess, Kongregate’s the perfect website for me.
Q: Do you lean towards being introverted or extroverted?
A: I don’t exactly “lean” towards introversion so much as reside there and look askance at anyone who comes nearby.
Q: As a teenager, did you ever receive the TALK? If so, how did it go?
A: As a teenager, I was talked to a lot. Mostly in voices that exude thinly-veiled anger or disappointment at my continual not-doing-stuff-when-asked. Out of all the talks I pretended to listen to, though, I don’t remember there being the fabled TALK that people talk about, but I do remember reading about it on the interwebs: birds fly south in Winter and the bees are dying out. The internet really saps the glamour out of things.
Thank you so much for answering the questions!
