Happy Birthday Adam Tyner!


Recommended Posts

Adam Tyner turns 28 years young today. He hails from Greenville, SC.


The interview....




1. What kind of work do you do?


I'm your garden variety web developer, and I've been working at 10best.com for (yikes!) right at six years now. I used some of those mad skillz, as I think the kids call 'em, to manage and render the content for LCVG.


2. Your gamertag/forum name is Sonic Yogurt. Where did that come from?


One of my favorite bands when I was in college was Tuscadero, an underappreciated power-pop outfit out of D.C. I've always liked their song "Sonic Yogurt" but loved the title even more, and I figured it was distinctive enough to make a good GamerTag.


3. What is your favorite game of all time?


Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball! No, the game that holds the (sniffles!) most dear place in my heart is Mega Man 2. I can't remember a time growing up when I wasn't gaming, but Mega Man 2 is what really turned me into a frothing-at-the-mouth rabid gamer. Simple, infectious gameplay...still the best music of any title from the past 20 years...plus it's kinda short 'n easy, and that's usually a plus.


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? And please note rule change: No fair naming a video game character who also happens to be a Real Human, like Tiger Woods.


Being a teleporter would be neat, but only if I could make the same sound effects as the Ariloulaleelay Skiff from the "Star Control" games. I know that's an inanimate ship and not a character, exactly, but I guarantee that it's an answer no one else would ever give.


5. Nearly 100% of your recent posts have been on HD DVD matters. You review DVD's for DVDTalk.com, and you confess to liking "Josie and the Pussycats". We're not here to judge you, man, but what about that movie tickled your fancy?


Ha. I'd post more about other stuff, but I can't seem to juggle more than one obsession at a time, and HD DVD has been gobbling up just about every spare moment since its launch in April.


Three of my favorite things in the world are (a) female-fronted bands with crunchy guitars and whale-sized pop hooks, (B) tiny, cute brunettes, and © a ridiculous sense of humor. So, yeah. I'm the target demographic for Josie and the Pussycats. Well, the other target demographic. The one who's not a prepubescent, eleven year old girl. It's a much more clever flick than most people seem to think.


6. You've recently been sighted arm-in-arm with Princess Jasmine. What's she like?


Believe it or not, I actually did the whole Dinner with the Princesses thing at Disneyland. (To make it sound incrementally less creepy, I was with my much, much, much younger sister.) Five princesses stopped by our table, and Jasmine offered to post with me. Snow White? Aurora? Ariel? Belle? Snubbed! Well, not "snubbed" so much as "they didn't offer, and I didn't ask", but still...! Jasmine? Class act, all the way.


Thanks! This was fun.




Have a Happy Birthday Adam!
