CB Interviews: Talia

So I got this interview like 30 minutes ago while checking my email for school. I did a quick edit and I'm posting it now so if there are any mistakes please say so. In other matters, this interview was sweet, like interviewing a unicorn. Finally, I'm glad I made a separate account or it'll seem like I'm spamming

How did you get into blogging, and why here?
On my birthday, I decided that I had to grow some balls and do something outrageous� something I would never want to do willingly, like blogging. Blogging means sharing your thoughts on stuff, and I like keeping my thoughts to myself. I spent around two weeks convincing myself that writing my first blog was a good, because you know, I�m shy and shit. Destructoid is the only site I really felt like blogging because I realized that Dtoiders were cool people, even the dick ones. I enjoyed reading the C-blogs and the frontpaged articles, so mostly that encouraged me to be part of this great community. Long story short, I blog here because you�re all awesome.

How did you get your name and avatar?
My name is� my actual name. Yeah, super lame. I decided to use it because I wanted my username on Dtoid to be a bit more personal, since I was gonna share my opinion around the site. As for my avatar, it�s Rurouni Kenshin. I chose it cause I love the anime and every time he makes that expression I laugh my ass off. Plus, he�s awesome, like I am. I was gonna use Solid Snake, but too many people had him as avatar and I wanted to stand out from other users.

If you could call a country your home, what country would it be?
The US! You can buy a lot of cool stuff there. I almost went bankrupt when I traveled to New York.

Favorite game? I know you have one.
This is a tough one� Hmm� Probably Metal Gear Solid 4. That game is THE SHIT. There�s no other way to describe it. Well, just to elaborate a bit more, it was the first videogame to make me cry.

Favorite Movie Line
Every single line Bruce Wayne said on �The Dark Knight� as Batman, because his throat cancer-like voice makes me lol hard.

So....a girl gamer huh? How's that like?
I used to get mad when people didn�t believe me, but now I do not give a shit. It has been really awesome since then. I love that my buddies feel insulted when a girl (that would be me) owns them playing MW2 or Mario Kart at parties. It always makes my day.

Did I ever mention that I love your banner?....seriously, it looks amazing.
I wish I had done it! I found it on Deviantart when I looked for some Metal Gear artwork. I chose it because it reminds me of that sad but awesome moment on MGS3.

Do anything on Halloween?
The only remarkable thing I did that day was watching Inception twice. I didn�t do anything Halloween-related because I do not celebrate it. Not that I hate it though, it�s just that I do not see it as part of my culture.
My country used not to celebrate it, but we�re like a sponge and acquire every single foreign celebration. People here even celebrate Thanksgiving. THANKSGIVING, for God�s sake! /rant

[b]Favorite television show?[b]
Supernatural, for two simple reasons:
1-The actors who play the brothers are hot.
2- The storyline is very interesting. I like the mythology it presents and how it�s related to the main characters. Also, the show mixes drama and comedy in a splendid way, and it never feels out of place.
My reasons are kinda lame, but seriously, this show is good.

If you could punch anyone here on dtoid who would it be and why?
Hamza! Because he hasn�t fixed my buggy Destructoid inbox.

If you could hug anyone on dtoid who would it be and why?
Jordan Devore. Because he likes DKC 2, and that has made me develop an irrational crush on him.

Occams and Stevil totally have a "thing", who else on dtoid do you suspect have "things".
Mrandydixon and Occams. They fight like a married couple.

When I grow up, I want to be....
I want to be a hybrid between my mother and Elsa. Those women have some serious balls and mad leadership skillz.

Now that I'm old I can finally...
I can�t do shit, actually. The day I stop asking for permission to do things, my mom is probably dead. And I love my mommy, so hope that doesn�t happen in a long time!

Never too early to start thinking about Christmas, want anything?
I want to have Hot Pursuit so I can enjoy how CelicaCrazed�s dignity is destroyed every time he tries to beat my time in a race. I�ve wanted Hot Pursuit since it was announced, but Celica�s frustration with the demo because of moi makes me want it even more. Does that make me evil?

If maybe I told you that you might just have one day left to live what would you do?
If I do not have anything nice to say, I do not say anything at all. Even if the person insults me, I do not defend myself. But since is my last day on Earth, I would call/visit people who did that to me and tell them to fuck themselves. After I�m done with that, I would hug my mom until I die.

Do you have a Prized Possession? (Note: Family and Loved Ones Do Not Count)
My iPod! From the moment my hands touched it, I knew it was the love of my life. I even call it my appendix because it�s unnecessary, but it�s a part of me. I can�t leave my house without my iPod, I feel strange without it.

So, you're on a sinking boat and there is one life boat left. There is a young woman, a child (gender neutral), and an Old Man...What do you do? (Note: Not who do you save...you could, just you know....what do you do?)
I would get in the life boat and leave them on the sinking one. They will drown, but at least they�ll learn a valuable lesson: not to stand like a moron on a sinking boat!

I don't want to ask another question, you ask one...also answer it.

How would you define yourself as a gamer?
As a competitive shooter/racing addicted whore.
