Happy Birthday Keith! (KFredericks)....


Recommended Posts

Keith turns the ripe old age of 31 today. He hails from Massachusetts.


Here is his interview....




1. What kind of work do you do?

Metaphorically I dig holes, while other people inadvertently fill them. Literally, I work in the production technology department for college textbook publishing. Houghton Mifflin, the publisher of the Lord of the Rings franchise.


2. Until I brought it up, you had "Sometimes a fire extinguisher catches fire" as your signature . I can't tell you the countless hours I spent delving into the deep philosophical, socio-political, and religous impact of that statement. So what the hell did it mean, anyway?

It is an expression of my love for irony and the unexpected. How the hell are you supposed to put a fire extinguisher out? I guess if you had another one that wasn?t on fire, but who has two?


3. What is your favorite game of all time?

It would have to be the original Ninja Gaiden. I have never felt so rewarded when beating a game. And I?ve never been so caught up in a story.


4. If you could become any videogame character, and have his/her attributes in the real world, who would you choose to become and why?

I was gonna say Loco Roco but no, it is Gordon Freeman for practical every day reasons. I walk around my work halls constantly wondering if the ventilation shafts would offer a quicker way to the meeting room. If I was Gordon I wouldn?t think twice about giving it a shot.


5. What's the funniest prank you ever pulled on someone or had pulled on you?

My brother took my unopened movie that I rented from Blockbuster, removed the movie within (?The Beach?) and replaced it with one of my DVDs (?The Usual Suspects?). When I opened the case, I was SO PISSED that blockbuster gave me the wrong DVD, that I raced back to the store, screamed at the guy, threw ?The Usual Suspects? in his face and stormed out.


Needless to say, I found out it was a joke eventually. And while racing back to blockbuster yet again, this time to retrieve my property that I gave away, my mind was split between worrying about what the Blockbuster guy had done to my DVD (rented it out maybe?), and how exactly I was going to explain the situation.


6. If you were unable to hang out on this forum, which other would you choose and why?

I would create my own forum, make a dozen different accounts (specifically: Futurevoid, Stencil, CaptDS9E, Dogbert, Snakefish, Bruce B, Jtello, Tendril, Secretvampire, greenmonkey, robotmonkey, etc..) and just have a friggin ball making personal attacks and banning people.




Have a terriffic birthday, Keith! In your honor, I have designated this thread as a smiley-free zone. <DO NOT insert smiley here>

Dear God,


If I have ever wanted anything more than this forum (aside from the PS3, Phoebe Cates circa Fast Times, and the reunion of Oingo Boingo), please let Keith's forum come to fruition.






Happy birthday, Keith!
