This week's interview features the user kazumazkan.
When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username kazumazkan?
"In 2003 or so when I was in middle school, maybe a year before that but I'm pretty sure it was 2003; just a regular day in a computer class, I don't remember the class name but it was a free day,the game that I liked was Pico Sim Date and the second one, as well as other games I found, a few years later when my family got a desktop, my brother I believe found the game Riddle School on another website but it had the NG logo/preloader,so I naturally rediscovered NG and played games here as well. We kept the that pc until 2007-8 when it got messed up by virus.
It wasn't till late 2009 when my family moved in to a house, right my behind the one caught fire so we could do repairs on it when we get the insurance money this was around August, when we moved there, maybe the end of July. We got a new desktop and internet around at that house around September but didn't get to use it right away because I had to go the hospital for a day and a half for something I had to do.
So for some time it was flash games and Youtube and at this time I was trying to remember the name of Newgrounds because once again I forgot about it and I think my brother reminded me about it, I went to NG, enjoyed it then attempted to sign up but I had no e-mail adress so after a while me and my brother made an e-mail account and used it to sign up to some websites and I used it to sign up here at NG at the end of november 2009."
Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?
"Yes, definitely, I was immature and an "attention whore" when I stumbled on to "a little war among a group of users who were flaming here and there over on one certain user", as well as others who joined in at the moment because when I became a member it was hard for me to convince those that like to attack "the kids" that I was 16 due to the fact that I started flaming as well and using shit spelling and grammar, but it has improved since then.
Also changed in real life, a lot in some aspects and less in other parts but I definitely changed.
Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?
"There are some users that are annoying, a few really annoying ones but tolerable and some people can be a pain but it's the internet, what can you do."
What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer? And is there another forum user that you want to see getting interviewed by me?
"The forums are great, I mostly spend my time on the general and video game forums, I like them both equally so I cant say which one I prefer.
I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?
"My opinion on them, well they are mods so of course they do their job, sometimes they can be maybe unfair or very strict but now they seem more lenient but they won't hesitate to bring the smackdown. They do a pretty good job."
Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?
"I wouldn't know for sure, would like to be a forum moderator because some shit happens late at night when no other mods are around, like one time some jackass started spamming anal prolapse pictures and other disgusting pictures/porn, Back-From-Purgatory can back me up on this.
This happened around Thanksgiving last year. Also maybe review moderation as I see a lot of abusive reviews."
The last redesign happened 2012. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?
"It's pretty and I like it, although I do miss the previous design but things change, sometimes for the good I guess, the Redesign did make it easier to navigate the site so that's a plus. I do however miss the old userpage headers."
You have a pet iguana, Samantha. When did you get her? Could you imagine getting more exotic pets in the future?
"My mom got it from Louisiana, a family friend works over there and found one and she told him to get it and she paid him for the lizard. As for more exotic pets, I don't know this is pretty much all I want, maybe a Bobcat would be nice...."
Judging from your Youtube channel, you seem to be a fan of the GTA series. Which installment of the series is your favourite? What kind of changes would you like to see in future títles?
"GTA San Andreas is my favourite of the series and other changes? I wouldn't know, there are some things I would like to see being put in future titles but for now let's enjoy what we got right ?"
You are a fan of Pink Floyd. When did you start listening to them and what are your favourite songs?
"When I was younger, my parents listened to this music so naturally their kids would pick up on it. My favourite songs to name a few, are would be Pigs (Three Different Ones), Pigs on the Wing, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Breathe, Echoes, In the Flesh, Mother, Comfortably Numb and many more, I pretty much love all of their songs."
The Walking Dead is one of your favourite tv series. As somone who hasn't watched the show, tell me what the show is about and why you like it. Did you play the Walking Dead game(s)? If so, did you like them?
"To sum it up quickly it's about a Zombie Apocalypse and its focus is on Rrick Grimes and his son and the group and the struggles they have to face on their journey for safety.
As for the games, I liked the Telltales games as well as the FPS one, it was rather quickly produced, it had a good concept and some nice ideas but unfortunately got rushed to get released too early but you can blame Activision on that. For me it was still decent, I liked it and found it enjoyable."
Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?
"I don't really have any secrets so yeah..."
What can we expect from you in the future, kazumazkan?
"What to expect from me, I hope to learn to play instruments and do make better music and I want to learn how to make flash games and animations. Other then that whatever comes my way and the ideas I get."
