Let’s just go ahead and get this one out of the way… We noticed that you called some of your photos “Nelf” shots. We’re certain that was a typo so we went ahead corrected it to “Belf”. You’re okay with that, right? RIGHT?!
Lol. Well, it does seem that the majority of WoW entertainers are Horde. There seems to be very little representation for us Allies. I started out Alliance, and the majority of my toons are Allies, but I wanted to see what Hordies were like and have been playing a Troll Shaman lately. When I pvp on my Ally toons, I hate Hordies, but I assure you that when I am on my troll, I am hating those damn Allies.
Okay, so maybe you’re not okay with that. So why would you break our heart and play Alliance?
I had been going through a really hard time in my life. I was working way too hard, grumpy, and basically kinda hating life when one day “imma Be” came on the radio and I thought of “Imma Tree” for a wow parody. I decided I needed more fun in my life and I wanted to do something crazy and silly. So I decided, “What the Hell, I’m gonna do it”. I had so much fun making that video I just kept on going. I am still learning how to do all the things I want, but it has been one fun trip, lol.
We’re going to ask you a question and if you get it “right”, you have to marry us. Not the Reckon Crew, but the actual website. We’d have to introduce you as “Mrs. BusyGamer.com”. That might be a threat, we’re not sure. Anyway, here’s the question: Who is the best character on SG-1?
Hands down it is Colonel Jack O’Neil. I don’t really care if anyone else agrees with me or not because I am right and they are wrong. His sarcastic humor and “don’t back down” attitude brought so much to the series. When he started appearing less in the series it was a real blow. Not even Vala and Mitchell combined were not enough to pick up the slack.
Buffy Trivia question that wins you extra points if you know the answer. What was the name of Nathan Fillion’s character in Buffy?
Ooooooh, creepy evil preacher guy? That was it, right? Nah, it was Caleb, the right hand man of the “First” during the seventh and final season of Buffy.
What’s the best way to show nerd love to a geeky lady like yourself without being creepy? We’re asking for a friend.
Send WOW prepaid game cards. Ooooh, or in-game gold. Seriously.
Ok, ok, truly, I just love chatting with other people with similar interests. Write to me on YouTube or Facebook. I almost always reply. I love to hear critiques of my projects, and suggestions for the future or just to chat about your favorite TV shows or comic books. But if you are talking about TV shows, expect me to be a season behind because I won’t pay for cable. I just watch Netflix. Ha.
What’s your favorite class to play in a “fantasy setting” RPG and why?
I love being a Nelf, they are so mystical and sexy. But I have really enjoyed cosplaying as a rogue. I love playing a strong, powerful, confident character like that. Makes me feel badass.
You have to give up one game you love… forever. We’re not sure why, this sort of thing just tends to happen in these interviews. Tell us which game you’d give up and which you’d never give up. Show your work. We grade on accuracy.
I am going to sound like a broken record, but truth is I could give up any of the games I play except WOW. It is so much a part of me and my life, I could never, and wouldn’t ever want to change that.
If we were to turn on your iPod/Pandora/Zune, what artist would we most likely hear?
I feel like such a nerd saying this, but I listen to my own songs a lot. I have recorded probably like 20 or so parodies and original songs that haven’t been released. I listen to them on a regular basis. It helps me find the things I don’t like and want to improve. I am listening to one of my songs called “Tale of an Off-tank” right now. As for like, you know, real artists, although I have very eclectic taste, I tend to like heavier artists. Nine Inch Nails is my all time favorite. Marilyn Manson, Radiohead, Mazzy Star, Nirvana. K, now I am showing my age a bit. Nowadays, Muse, Static X, Disturbed. I think I would hump David Draiman’s leg if I ever met him in person.
If you could put together the perfect “nerd” date, what would it involve?
On Valentine’s Day my guild had to run a 10 man because not enough people showed up for 25′s. Me and my man were part of that 10 man, because it is like I said that night, that is how I WANTED to spend Valentine’s Day. In my house, raid night is date night. Sometimes I get lucky after, and that’s even better.
Playing WoW with your man: Sexy happy fun time or big no-no?
I am not lying when I say that WOW helped save my marriage. We were on the edge of divorce when I started playing over two years ago. It has been a great way for us to spend more time together and share a similar interest. I remember all night gaming sessions ending in some of the best sex of my life. Plus, I have always enjoyed giving my man a BJ while he plays. If I could figure out a way to play WOW and have sex at the same time I would so do it. But I guess classy ladies aren’t supposed to talk about that stuff, right?
Let’s say, hypothetically, that we had plans to woo you. What’s the best way to get your attention?
What I look for in a man is someone who understands that I am who I am and accepts that. I am outspoken and honest to a fault. I say things that other people are afraid to say and I often talk about things that would be considered too personal. But I am confident and self-reliant. I am who I am and make no apologies for that. I like who I am. So I guess to get my attention, be real.
When’s the last time you kissed a geek?
About 5 minutes ago when my husband came in here to see what I was doing. He is the hottest geek, I must say.
What’s the biggest complaint you hear in regards to your WoW “habit”?
I catch alot of flack from the girls at work for being a “WOW nerd” and it doesn’t bother me. It is who I am.
Do you WoW “naked”? We mean do you use UI mods, but you know, whatever…
My man “Doom” custom makes my UI for me. I am spoiled. As for what I wear, well, some things are best left to the imagination.
Who wins in a fight, Picard or Kirk? Buffy or River? Thrall or Varian?
Well, I have to say Picard, but that may just be because I had a kiddie crush on him. He is pretty hot, you know. Plus, the whole Professor Xavier thing is a turn on.
Buffy and River? Oooooo, now that would be one hell of an awesome fight. But let’s be serious, most of you guys would much rather see those two make out then fight each other. Just sayin’.
As an Ally at heart, I should say Varian, but Thrall all the way. He is the man, one of my favorite WOW characters and there is very interesting lore surrounding his character.
What’s your absolute favorite “down time” game of all time? You know, the one you play when you have no internet or the WoW servers are down…
Other than the obvious? I really enjoy music. When I am not gaming I am usually playing or writing songs. I play the guitar and piano.
If you could meet one game/sci-fi/fantasy character, who would it be and why?
The whole freaking crew of Moiya from “Farscape”. Individually, they are each interesting but as a team, they complement each other well. I love that show.
We’d like to include you in our plans for World Domination. What skills do you bring to the table for this inevitable conclusion?
I make wicked fudge. I mean, like, epically, mind-melting awesome. Ok, well if it has anything to do with zombies, I am a bit of a zombie expert. Zombies, they are the key to world domination. Zombies and fudge.
Sexiest geek of all time? Male, female, fictional… we don’t judge.
Sexiest Geek Ever……..WIERD AL YANKOVIC!!!! Not being afraid to be yourself is sooooo sexy. “White and Nerdy”. ‘nuff said.
