Senior Member Interview
March 24, 2013
- Why did you choose Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb?
I got along with them the best at Real Life events, and they have the same brand of humor as myself.
- Do you fit the Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb stereotype?
Decide for youself.
- Do you enjoy using your deviant humor at the expense of others?
If by deviant humor you mean sarcasm and by expense of others you mean calling them out on BS than yes on both accounts.
- Are you gay?
Happy yes sexual orientation no.
- What male character from the novels do you think would fit best in Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb?
Well these the obvious character, Mat. But I think any of the main trio would fit in. Lan and possibly Slayer the Isam version of him.
- How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?
- How did you first get into the series?
A friends older brother explained Aiel to me as "Badass ninja indians" and i had to read about that.
- Who is your favorite "hero"?
If its of the horn. Artur Hawking.
- Favorite bad guy/gal?
Lanfear and Moridin
- Favorite book and scene?
I dont have a fav book really. I view the series as one long story and i cant really break it up by books. But if I had to choose one id Choose Memory of light... Im in it after all. And fav scene is by far When Ingtar tells Rand hes a Darkfriend in the Great Hunt, and what insues afterwards.
- If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?
Id be a Perrin type character most likely. The reluctant soldier doing duty sticking to honor. Wolfbrother Ashaman either one... Possibly both ^_^
- How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member?
My fiance (Mieriana) and I went to the first JordanCon because we are such WoT fans. We met several TVers there. Membership Sedai and Morrow are the ones who recruited us.
- What do you do in "real life"?
Dockbuilding and pile driving for the State of NY.

I collect Mediveal weaponry. I enjoy playing football with friends and in a semi pro league. Im a movie buff and i like to play boardgames.
- What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
I like just about every kind of music. On my Ipod youll find everything from Betovan to busta ryhmes. If I had to pick a fav band it would be Sublime.
- What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?
Fav movies are to long to list. I like all kinds though love bruce willis, mel gibson, matthew mcconaughey, Robert Downey JR. So many. Same goes for TV shows but some i like are Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, Walking Dead, Avatar: The last airbender (TV show NOT the horrendous travesty by M Night).
