This should be a cool interview. So lets get this started


1.) Why only Classic? Surely there are other maps you like!

2.) Why all the images in the post?

May i first say that i know you to be a complex, sophisticated and high-minded individual. A person more in tune with the cerebral than the aesthetic, more impressed by the artful than the superficial!
Now within that context and in this place where you have only the scent of an intellect; the fragmented and ever-changing aura through which to fill the gaps and form a cohesive judgement upon true persona.... based on that, would you do JohnnyRocket24?

Is there a particular image site you repeatedly go to for your images, or do you just use search engines?

Of all your posts, what are the top couple of favorites, if you have any?

Clearly you seem to grasp the principles behind my high-minded and sophisticated ideals, to which many unsavory people who are both irrational and incoherent would express a profound sense of contempt towards. But I say those "Nascar dads", those "Valley girls", and even "Joe Six-pack" himself are capable of playing an enjoyable game... and on the other side of the Atlantic we have "chavs", "white van men", "Worcester Women" and "tabloid readers", and dare I say it... they too are welcome here... The message is clear: even though these people can be mobilized for Conquer Club causes, the best course of action is to isolate them and minimize their ability to reproduce...

which, said another way....

Two questions:

1. If someone held a gun to your head and demanded an answer, what's your favorite non-classic (non-shapes and non-art as well) map?
2. If I told you that CC could have the true-blue classic map back, but you could only play one game a month, would you accept that bargain?

I am supposed to wait to answer these wonderful and sometimes wacky questions in the newsletter,
but I need to clarify question # 2...

Would that be the ONLY game I could play for the month? or would this be in addition to my other games?

Is it true that you were picked for an interview because you were least likely to rehash talking about DM, T-o-m, Norse and the rest of the banned? :twisted:

1. How does it feel being CC's number 2 self-promoter, 2nd only to Blitz?
2. How much time do you actually spend thinking of ways to include yourself in top 5 lists?
3. If the conquerclub ever disappeared, what would you do for self-esteem?

How do you always maintain your high caliber of professionalism, no matter what the situation, and post the damn funniest, most appropriate pictures, with every thread?

Why do the mods seem to allow you to troll the GD relentlessly, while other users are constantly getting banned for it?
