Member Interview VII
Lyonnais: Ay, girl how you doing tonight? You come here often, girl? Mind if I get you a drink girl?
Nathan: Yea good m8 wbu? This is my local so u better watch ur self brah. Johnnie walker please.
Lyonnais: I'm fine bb, and what the hell is a Johnnie Walker? I'm an American who lives in the sober state that is Utah, and the beer there is like 0.0001%.
Anyways, mate while you somehow acquire said drink from the waitress (I'm not the waitress despite how I'm dressed like one. This is meant to arouse you; not serve you) let's start off this little chat with the standard question that our saviour Goonjimbo or Cashis would have used.
Nathan: oh maaann, it's the bomb. not trying to sound like a raging alco here though haha.
i am 19, male, and from australia. gold coast to be specific, which is pretty much the glamorous butthole of our great nation.
Lyonnais: It's okay. I'm sure Chelskiman will set you straight a few years down the line, and make you into the shitfaced alcoholic you were meant to be.
And damn... we're like long lost twins! I'm also 19, male and from Australia Florida which is also the glamorous butthole of my great nation.
Anyways, I guess I can't fangirl over you too much. Who's your team? I'm assuming their shit, and who's your favourite player? I'm assuming their amazing and don't play for your team.
Nathan: I'm sure he'll do his best haha.
I might also add, Florida & the Gold Coast would be quite sweaty buttholes. I am currently wearing only pants (ladies, form a line) sitting in my room under a fan on high and still sweating like there's no tomorrow.
i've gotta admit, soccer as we call it here, doesn't get much airtime on tv, even the local leagues, unless you've got pay tv, which i don't. so i've kind of been a bit out of the loop lately. my favourite sport (AFL) has entered its offseason so i'm catching up with it all now. my local team is the brisbane roar, but internationally i've always been a fan of juventus. favourite player? PFFFT! ANDRÉ-PIERRE GIGNAC!! oui oui.
Lyonnais: Bitches best get outta line 'fore I start showing my Redneck lineage, and shooting everyone. I call dibs on seeing Natman4's sweaty ass body first. Full homo of course.
Ugh, sounds like when I'm attempting to watch any European soccer over here. Everything is either not on, or the commentators are shitty. At least my teams main commentator has a drinking game set up. And the Brisbane Roar is such an American name, hehe.
Always did love Gignac. I remember when you and I fought over who was better: Sverkos or Gignac in 2010 I think. Think they were both banging in like 50 goals a season for us!
I've never heard about this Juventus link? What's up with that? I've always kinda liked them (although I don't really have a favourite team in Italy... INB4 U BRING UP OLD ACCOUNT NAME). Loved the black & white stripes and always loved that Del Piero guy with his tongue hanging out.
Nathan: you know you want me, but can you handle me?
hey! at least we don't settle for naming our team after a year like the 49ers or 76ers. definitely not as menacing as the ROARRRRRRRRRR.
ahh my beautiful man beast. so prolific. and oh yesss haha i remember out sverkos vs gignac battles back in the day. ehhh i dunno, i tried sverkos a few times but he never did it for me haha. gignac would just flick the beast mode switch and pound the defense hard.
well that's because you never asked. or should i say... ASromaKED. muwahaha.
Lyonnais: Betchu I can.
And I never knew Katy Perry was menacing. I mean look at this shit. She would never make it in Aussieland.
Like no way is that girl menacing. Compared to overweight hobo miners who have gold grills, and big dicks.
Well tell me about it you *bleep* because i'm ASromaKING you now!
homo is possible in this one
Nathan: I'VE GOT THE EYE OF THE TIGERRRRRRR!!!! i am ashamed to know a few of the lyrics to that song haha. they play it heaps at work. drives me insaaaneeeeee. also, no spiders please and thankyou.
haha i dunno. i always played with them on pes back in the day, with nedved, camoranesi, trezeguet, cannavaro and those sorts of fellas, it was pretty sweet. maybe it's because i liked nedved's hair. ehh i dunno haha.
Lyonnais: YOU'RE GONNA HEAR ME ROOAAARR- AH- AH-AH -AH -A H AHAHAHH ROARRRA AH AH AHAHA AHAHAHA! It's okay man... we all have moments of weakness.
Ugh, they did have a good team way back then didn't they? Oh, and hair is amazing isn't it.
Shame you and I can't grow facial hair to save our lives. Like literally I shaved my mou about a week before the end of November because I felt like crying looking at how pathetic it looked. Looks almost exactly like yours too except mines a wee bit darker.
You still do any sports? I know you're a fan of the AFL and Soccer, but didn't you mainly play cricket?
Nathan: UM EXCUSE ME. MY MOUSTACHE IS GLORIOUS THANK YOU VERY MUCH. i can grow a pretty sexy beard after a few days too. i got a few comments like "wahh wahh you pedo" and "hide yo kids", but besides the raising money part (just over $160), i mainly did it to get lots of compliments after i shaved it off.
nahh i haven't played any sports in a while. i graduated high school in 2011, and up until that year, i played cricket every summer since about 2003/4. i played a season of winter cricket that year but decided not to play the summer season as it was right in the middle of exams and graduation and stuff. after watching the ashes recently, i really miss playing. i was mainly a bowler back in the day, and every time i watch it on tv, i get these weird muscle memory feelings of how i would bowl them out haha. i might start up again next season, who knows haha.
i dunno if i ever told you but when i was 7 to 11 years old, i played soccer. i was mainly a goalkeeper, which was cool because i got to chill down in the goals and hang off the posts haha.
Lyonnais: You raised money with that Moustache? What the hell did you do with it? Give it to some old guy as a toupee? And I'm sure the ladies loved your bare ass face. I know I do.
I have absolutely no idea what any of this cricket terminology means. I think you, Chelski and Bs need to educate me because when you guys were talking about it I had to basically skip over like 10 pages of discussion in the GD!
*bleep*s sake I was a Goalkeeper too! Although I played mostly out on the wing, middle or up top as we had the best goalkeeper in the state in front of me. Like literally he won 2-3 State Championships and won Goalkeeper of the year at least once. *bleep*ing madness.
Anyways, I suppose it's onto another question. What's your favourite kinda food? I'm sure you can cook as well, or is my image of you as a trophy husband fading?
Nathan: raised money for movember! mens health awareness and prostate cancer, pretty good cause i must say.
hahaha yeah i figured that part would only be for chelsk's and bs's eyes only. expect a fair bit more of it though, we're only 2 matches into a 5 match series!
goshh we're twins.
ohhhhhhh maaaannnnn, don't even get me started on food. favourite food? either italian, mexican or chinese. so that would mean pizza, pasta, nachos, wraps, honey lemon chicken, etc. i'm salivating just thinking about it.
earlier this year i got into a mad pizza-making frenzy. i would literally make one every day. most of the time from scratch, meaning i'd make the base as well. i'd always just have meat and cheese on it though. no better combo.
QUESTION FOR YOU. when you have leftover pizza, do you prefer it cold from the fridge or microwave it?
so yeah i can make pizza. i can also cook a really good "large vegetarian sausage roll". it's about 25cm long (don't know what your silly US measurement would be for that haha), got pastry on the outside of a mix of red kidney beans, carrots, capsicum, corn, cheese, tomato paste and chilli. so i'd say it could be called a mexican sausage roll, definitely has a similar taste. but it's deliciousssss. i can also do stir frys and stuff, but i leave most of the cooking to mum, while i still can haha. i will forever be the perfect trophy hubby bbz.
Lyonnais: I have to microwave it. I do that with everything though... I just prefer my food hot. If I wanted something cold I would go suckle on some ice or w/e.
So... is now a good time to tell you that I can also make pizza from scratch? Like I make my own dough and all that jazz. The only thing I don't do is make my own sauce because I just cba to make it when I have some perfectly good sauce in the cabinet, and there's a lack of any decent tomatoes in this freezing cold I'm in. We're seriously like Trophy Husbands though... we can cook, clean and grow shitty excellent moustaches! What else could a woman ask for?
How's the university life treating you? I remember you were studying Architecture, but you had stopped a while ago and switched into something else. Not to mention you also have a job currently... bagging groceries I think? I think you work in a supermarket or something like that.
Nathan: yessss, my microwave is seriously my most valued possession. although i do enjoy the odd sucking of ice.
ohh yeah haha i dont make my sauce either, forgot that. i'm in the same boat, if i've got a fridge full of saucey sauces then why bother?
what more could women want, eh? we sound pretty perfect. too bad we can't land any. there's a saying that i find might suit our situationz.
"theres plenty of fish in the sea, but until i catch one, i'm just stuck here holding my rod"
ahh well i took a gap year this year, mainly because i wasn't enjoying architecture. i had a job at a supermarket, in fresh produce, so i decided i would try and work my way up from part time to full time, which i did in a matter of weeks haha. so since around march this year i have been on full time hours, which was been great for my bank balance. i'm even running departments now, although staying in retail really isn't something i'd like to do for the rest of my life. i hate people.
I'm not implying anything at all here.
Ah yeah, I remember you taking a gap year. It's weird you were doing Architecture though as if I was going to uni that's probably what I would major in. I also oddly enough took a gap year as well (unintentionally I might add since I was moving to Hawai'i and then I moved to Utah... both during the span of when classes were being set up).
Oh, and I feel you on hating people. I took a job at a fast food place, and it was alright. Although they did work me to the bone when I was really only meant to be part time. Squeezed those hours out, ahah. I have a better job painting apartments though.
How's the family? Got any sisters that I can marry into your family with?
Nathan: interesting choice of man pants there chelsk haha.
yeah i was gonna ask about your gap year. i always remember you telling me you move around a fair bit because your dad was in ze military or something? i'm kind of glad i took a gap year, as i've got enough money to cover my study expenses for next year, and potentially going overseas for holiday late next year as well. we'll see though.
ahh yeah i would hate to work in fast food. originally i thought i would just be too tempted to eat everything, but having worked in retail for nearly 2 years now, i can imagine it would be twice as worse in a place like that. painting eh? painted any sistine chapel ceilings lately?
family is pretty well. i thought i told you that i'm an only child, silly. so unless you wanna have a crack at my mum, you've got no hope i'm afraid.
Lyonnais: My gap year has involved me living in 2 different states, and visiting another 7. Not bad if you're a traveler, but I'm really not one of those people haha! Can't believe I've been to 9 states this year though.
And it was so cramped tbh, very small place to work in and we were very very busy since I was hired literally as the store was opening up. I wish I could paint something like the Sistine Chapel! Always loved that place, and I really want to go!
Oh... and is your mum fit? Or do I have to stalk that facebook of yours?
I think we have to talk about PES now, hahah! What's your favourite ML memory? You got a team you always like to play in the game? And speaking of which... what was the last PES you got?
Nathan: oh man, i'd be lucky to have travelled 100km away this year. i love travelling. i really hope i can next year.
what store was it? was it one of the main ones that i might have heard of? haha
NO SHE'S NOT. go for it, i totally added you the other day.
ahh i'm racking my brain and i'm struggling to think of some ML memories. it's been that long! i think i had a few good ML's with valencia and werder bremen. i think i chose them because i liked the kits they had haha. other times i would create a team for the ML, just so i could play around with the kits. i loved the edits modes back in the day.
i think my last pes i played was 2009. maan that's so long ago. i remember the first pes i got was 5. i had a subscription to a playstation magazine and they had discs with demos of certain games, and im pretty sure that was on one of them.
i'm definitely considering getting the latest one though, to keep me entertained through these hot months. if i had a pool, then pes wouldn't stand a chance haha.
Lyonnais: Teddy's Bigger Burgers is where I worked. I don't think they have places in Australia, but they do in Japan, Seattle and Hawaii!
YOU DID? WHAT? I SENT THAT FRIEND REQUEST LIKE A YEAR AGO YOU *bleep*ING BOOB!
I do love a team with a good kit! Shame Valencia's look a bit odd this year. Last year's were ace! Werder had a great diamond pattern on theirs not too long ago.
God damnit Natman. 2009? That was like my first PES! You must have had a later one right? Wasn't it 2010 me and you fought over Gignac/Sverkos? I'm going to have to look this shit up now!
2014 is pretty good, but if I was going for a PES to keep me entertained I would also recommend 2013. I don't know what it was, but that one was excellent. 2014 isn't bad, but I sometimes just don't have a drive to play it while with 2013 I couldn't really stop!
Well, since these PES questions are probably going to go nowhere... how did you get into Graphics? When I came into the forums you were already there. *bleep* me you even made me my first signature! Wasn't it a Juninho one? Or maybe it was a Totti one? I can't remember, lol.
Seriously, how did you get into Graphics? I started out on Neoseeker because I was inspired by you lot, but what about you?
Nathan: ahh yeah never heard of it. are the burgers really bigger though?
i know haha. the other day i was like 'yeaaaah im gonna accept'. STALK ME.
ahh yeah it might have been 2010. i was looking up the covers on google images and i didnt recognise the 2010 one though. i'll see if i still have the games somewhere.
i think i had a class in school in year 9 (2008) where it was IT based, so computers and shit. pretty sure we had an assignment and the teacher recommended using photoshop. i'm not sure if that was my first ever time using photoshop, but it's my first memory using it. so i started then, and i got photoshop for my birthday that year as i was going to need it a fair bit for school. dunno if i knew about torrents and stuff back then.
anyway, i installed photoshop, used it for school but would also play around with signatures and wallpapers and stuff. i have a big folder full of old neo signatures from requests and stuff that i've done, but i can't see any of yours in there. i also went back through our old pm's (god some of them are cringeworthy!) and couldn't find any sigs that i made besides some nakamura one haha. i do remember making you one way before that!
I think they're pretty big. My friend that worked there was a madman though... he liked getting an 18oz burger literally bloody rare. Like 10 seconds on the grill for both sides. With chicken nuggetts, onion rings, Fried Fish, Fried Chicken Spuds, etc. It ended up being about the size of my face, and I have no idea how he ate it!
And reading through my old posts I found us debating who had the better forward in 2010! So you must have had that as your last PES game. I'll just leave this here to further my point that Sverkos was god in living form.
quote LyonnaisI can't believe the bastards 30 now. Literally been 5 years since that game. Can't believe it. Shame he's a bit shit in real life.
And I don't even want to look through my old PMs. Cringeworthy, and I'll start missing a lot of people. I have some old MSN chatlogs as well! Jesus christ I sounded like a 10 year old at times, but then again that's what happens with IM.
Oh, and you don't remember making me this?
I think you made me another signature way back when, but the thread got deleted (which is really odd considering the others are all there).
What's your favorite NeoMemory™? I'm sure you've got a couple with you being active in the here for so long. You were active in a lot of forums too you damn drifter!
Nathan: mmmm that meat looks deliciousss. although that dude eating a super rare burger thing? yuck. super grotty. he kinda sounds like me how he eats heaps though haha, even though i ain't a fatty.
must have been 2010 then! don't even remember having it haha. i do however remember beating you in that argument that gignac was a superhuman.
haha i remember back when we had the g&a request forum and i used to help out there a fair bit, and this one guy WOULD NOT stop sending me PM's to do his signature. i did one for him i think, but after that i either couldnt do his request (too poorly written to properly understand) or ran out of time, but he sent me like 20 PMs asking me about it haha. i did reply to the first few saying i couldnt, but arhh g00d t1m3z.
i definitely remember making those!!!! man they are ancient as *bleep* haha. lavezzi <3
ahh i don't have too many really cool memories that stick out in my mind. i really enjoyed every draft league that i've participated in, even back when it was called PEML. there was that football lounge internet games thread which was heaps cool. bring it back Lone Warrior, obvs not FL as its gonezkes but somewhere cool. i'm no drifter fool! over the years i've only really been in pes, loungin, oceania, g&a, i was around the horror forums for a bit, but besides that i think thats about it! whats your fav ne0mem0ry dawg?
Lyonnais: You're such a fatty. It's okay though... more for
I'm fairly sure I actually won that argument you *bleep*. I got Whelan to buy him at least!
Goodnight Graphic Request Forum, and your top poster tag in that forum. So short lived. And I remember you posting them! I'm not sure if I ever used the Lavezzi one tbh! I do like how we were talking about how EVERYONE used to use that checkered background though! Even won the 2008 Header Contest I think!
That. That was an excellent thread. Was one of my only forays into that forum though as I really didn't fit in too well with that lot I feel. Even though I loved the mods of that place. Lot's of decent guys though, and they're all quite funny.
My favourite NeoMemory™ is probably when I had all of those MSN convos with you Dusk, Whelan, Chelskiman, Charlie and Spiritual. And lets not forget the SportGFX/GFXForums we got really into. Remember this shit?
quote Tommy Vercetti
quote Pompey Fan
I really do appreciate the effort Sergio and Ross went into making a good GFX forum! Shame none of them ever kicked off.
Oh, and Chelskiman molesting me when I first joined the GD in 2009 has to be a high point. Right? Right?!?!
Shame now Parmar1993 is getting all of that special attention in the GD. Lucky man.
You miss anybody that doesn't post on Neo anymore, or that you've just gotten distant with? And of course... do you regret not playing more on GAIA online with Dusk, Spiritual, Charlie and me?
Nathan: GIGNAC LIVES ON FOREVER.
i wasn't that active when they shut that place down. i only realised in maybe october that they merged them. i had a few teary moments. my one forum where i was top, and they took it right in front of me!
haha yes! there was some tutorial for it because i have no idea how i did it now. i do remember it being used a fair bit.
oh yeah those msn convos were so sick! i'll be honest, every time i got invited there would be some new person in there who i had never heard of, and no one properly introduced me to them, so i basically only talked to you guys.
pretty sure we were on sportgfx for a little while werent we? i still get emails from a few of those places. eurghhh. but jeez, that response you quoted me in was brutal! i'm sorry tommy.
i think Gunner4eva126 daveyposhboy matty and forrest gump sorta went afk without much notice. they were some pretty cool fellas, even though me and forrest only really talked about the draft league. XD
i've gotten a bit distant with a lot of people, not that i had a specific bunch of peeps that i talked to regularly. i think when i was inactive for a good 6/7 months earlier this year that may have hindered me staying in contact with people, as when i returned it was like a whole new community was around and i knew no one.
that GAIA game was definitely something i don't miss. i had no idea what i was doing and all you guys were like level 6000 or whatever. i failed hard in trying to chat up random babes, but that was fun though.
Lyonnais: In 5 years Gignac will make Sverkos his bride, and everything will be beautiful and right in this world and our debate will be meaningless...
Gignac's totally the trophy wife though.
And those MSN convos were great! Shame we never got in on those Big Boy conversations with Chelskiman and U_Turn! Although I might just be speaking for myself here! I still giggle over Chelski's custom title. Absolutely brilliant!
And you were a bit mean with that, haha. Made Pompey Fan sound like a gent!
Gunner4eva126 and Pro King post quite a lot on the FM forums still. Pappi kinda switched to FIFA. Goonjimbo #YOLO'd off to Loungin' and Eurobabes. Matty is Irish so we all know what he did. Forrest Gump supports Flamengo so I'm sure he was having a great year watching Flu almost get relegated! DaveyPoshboy still posts in the forums updating us on his Spurs SOMS (he's winning everything as far as I can tell, haha).
Jesus christ so many good members we've had over the years. I wish they would all come back sometimes. We all had some great times. Remember the PES photo album threads? God Jimbo's pictures were hilarious!
I feel you on going inactive mate. I completely skipped PES2012, and most of Neo for almost an entire year before coming back in time for PES2013. When I came back my old buddies Whelan and you were off doing your own thing. Although I am in a Skype convo with him, and we still have good fun.
I loved how you were just walking around in your boxers when you were picking everybody up! What a god damn stereotypical Aussie thing to do amirite?
Nathan: pshh gignac would destroy sverkos in the sack. and you know it.
also i have a new favourite neo moment ever. [link name=this thread. it's scheduled for deletion tomorrow, which i'm not sure why, but goddamn it is the weirdest shit i've seen on neo haha. i really hope they don't delete it so this whole paragraph isn't meaningless when the interview gets posted.
gunner's last post was in september though. D: i think i've still seen davey around a bit though. ahh you've revived the gfx thread, time to bring back the pes photo albums i reckon! we've got enough activity to warrant one now i reckon.
i kind of missed out on what happened to whelan. were we talking to his brother that whole time or was it actually him? i could have sworn someone said that his brother had his account for a few years.
i may or may not be in boxers right now.
Lyonnais: Good god that thread is amazing! I saved the recording. Jesus christ Spook is a bit of a legend for that. Should have put this the rap here so people can relive this experience over and over again.
We should see if we can get the PES Photo Album back. I wanna see all of your mugs! Although we can just do that in the GD, but it's easier to put them all in one thread, haha!
No. That was Whelan I do believe. We're gay on Thursdays for each other. I was actually talking with him, and discussed the possibility of him being interviewed.
quote WhelanThe life of a university student with no girlfriend at it's finest. He currently enjoys playing LoL, and likes long walks in the industrial end of Manchester. Some of his other hobbies include watching porn, indulging in crack cocaine with his buddy PhoenixBlue, and candlelight conversations on French film with a Morrocan Pedophile. But I think you'll agree that nothing is quite as sexy as him taking a long walk in the industrial end of Manchester.
That's extremely homoerotic. I might also be in my boxers right now. We should get together sometime, and compare our boxers.
And I think we're closing in on the part of the interview where you give us your shout outs! So if you would be so kind!
Nathan: my ugly mug won't be making an appearance man i'm still confused. so when was it not whelan?
kkkkkkk alright shoutowtz.
um first to paper fox pls come back. i miss u. same with xyn and dusk.
whelan if u are still who i think you are. hello.
bs chelskiman how's the cricket going? #returntheurn
lone warrior less not giving me your draft league players 'eh?
Natwoman Chelskiwoman i wish you guys posted more.
and last and probably least... lyonnais for being the little turd that you are. stay sexy homeslice.
Lyonnais: Oh my god I forgot about Xyn! Hope she's doing okay!
And wow, holy shit I completly forgot about the Natwoman account! I remember the Chelskiwoman one, but not that, hahah!
Well, since this interview is pretty much wrapped up do you have any kind of statement that you want to give your audience? Maybe something that you've learned through your day of life or your days in Neoseeker that will always get you through the day?!?! Anything? Anything at all?
Maybe nothing at all?
Nathan: nothing at all! nothing at all! nothing at all! nothing at all!
what i've learnt from neoseeker? no one is any better than anyone else. these sorts of forums where you're just talking to random people pretty much anonymously, you can form opinions of people pretty quickly from the way they go about posting. when i first joined neo, i was pretty apprehensive. didn't want to 'cause trouble and whatnot. i think over the years as i've matured, i've learnt to converse with peeps better, which has sort of carried over into real life too.
other life changing statements? be yourself. grow a beard. don't hang around with people who make you feel like shit. it's okay to be selfish. tell jokes and laugh.
i would like to thank myself for asking to be interviewed. i would also like to thank madam for agreeing to interview me. has been a blast. hope y'all enjoyed it.
Lyonnais: It's been a pleasure to interview you as well, mate! I haven't had a long conversation with anyone like this for a while now, and I seriously didn't want to end this intereview for a while. It's been a blast talking with you like this, and I hope the rest of the interviews coming are as fun as this.
Stay frosty Natman4.

Tommy Vercetti I tried with you guys, haha! Speaking of Ross/@Torres where is that bastard? I still have him added on facebook!
Johnny Pizza Man 78 Oh, I didn't even want to stop the interview! Had a lot of fun with this to be honest! Nathan and I just really click well it seems.
Whelan What?! Since when were you not playing LoL? I think the confusion happened when your brother started to use Neo more... maybe he hacked you as well at one point and it confused Nathan. I don't know man. Never trust that brother of yours.

That interview was great. Wish mine would be like that, which sadly, it won't.
Speaking of which, Lyonnais, when is my interview being conducted and by whom?
Because as I said, I might not be available after this week.

Member Interview VIII
Lyonnais: Hello, and welcome to the 8th interview of the Neoseeker interview where we will interview our 8th interviewee, Kaharius! How does it feel to be chosen for an interview?
Kaharius: Wow! My very first Neo interview! And you guys start it after I watch the TLC pay-per-view and go to sleep. I'm hyped! You hyped Lyonnais? Huh? Huh? What about you Sergio? Huh? Huh?
And what's this about being "chosen"? Excusez-moi, but if anything I chose myself to be interviewed. Way to spin words.
Lyonnais: I am so *bleep*ing hyped. And I'm quite concerned you know Sergio's name and we don't even know if your a male. #Stalker
M8 I chose you by my god given powers granted to me by Dan giving me full reign of this shit last year. So sit the *bleep* down, sit the *bleep* up, act like a monkey, eat some of my delicious key lime pie and be happy that you're being allowed to speak.
Anyway, I'm going to start this interview with a few basic questions. That I presume you're going to be ready to answer. Sergio, and I (Mainly Sergio I'm just here for the full bar) will go into the depths of your
Age/Sex/Location, and your name. And I do mean your full real name so I'm expecting a name that rivals Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert
Irvim John Kenneth Loyd Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy
Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor Willian Xerxes Yancy Zeus Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorffvor...
Kaharius: Umm. You mentioned Sergio in the first post, so I just naturally assumed his name was Sergio. Can I not call you Sergio, Tommy?
Mmm. Lime. I like lime.
Mmm. United. I like Manchester United.
Holy crap. What have I got myself into?! Please go easy on me, guys. It's my first time. And I sense you've got some very stupid plans, that you've planned before hand. Pre-planned plans, like I call them.
19/Male(shockingly)/Bangalore, India. My full name would be too hard to pronounce, but it's Kausthub Sekar M H. where M stands for Manikandan, and H stand for Hariharan. Don't even try to pronounce them. You can't. I wish my name was that long though. It'd be epic.
Lyonnais: Oh, we don't have any plans for you! Well I mean we do have one plan, but i'm not sure you're going to like it.
Anyway, holy shit that's a long name. Makes me wonder what Parmar1993's full name is haha! My first and last name consist of 8 characters which is the entirety of your first name shockingly. My name game isn't as high as yours.
Anyway, I guess it's onto questions. And this is the awkward part of the interview where I tell you I actually don't have any questions, and normally I just go with the flow. You have however given me nothing to flow off on so I'm left here posting a .gif as some filler. It's okay though no one will read this as they'll be too distracted by my .gif!
Now, back to the questions I have carefully planned and have spent weeks compiling. How do you feel about Tommy Vercetti? He's a *bleep* innit?
Tommy Vercetti: I think he's a bit of a *bleep*......wait a minute!
Kaharius: Damn. And where do I come in in this plan of yours?
Well, not really long, but my given name is kinda unique. Not many people have it. Having said that though, I've met three other guys who share that name, so that's a bit of a let down.
Of course he is! Wait, by *bleep*, do you mean a *bleep* or a *bleep*?
I remember the very first conversation I had with him on Neo. We were quoting lines from The Dark Knight. And I kinda flopped it.
No, in all honesty, though. He's a great lad. I know it may seem a bit on the contrary to how I'd reacted before, but I think he's helped me a great deal, even though he might not know or realize it.
Lyonnais: I mean he's a *bleep* tho.
Good, because I'm out and he's in tag-team style. He'll proceed on to grilling you, and making your skin look like a hot dog which the whole forum will eat after they find out that there really wasn't an interview.
Kaharius: Ooh. You make it sound as if you guys are going to uncover some deep dark secret of mine about which even I'm not aware of.
Tommy Vercetti: Well isn't this awkward?
Me and you, we got a bit of a history, don't we? Do these images mean anything to you? (Btw, if at any moment I ask something too serious, tell me and I'll ask something else.)
I'm sure you remember those, don't you?
Kaharius: Damn. It definitely is awkward now.
Yes, yes we do. Sure, I remember those. The kits I posted but looked very similar to Cholaja from pesgaming.
I'll admit it, mate. I didn't make those kits. Well, not entirely, at least. But I certainly did not rip them off from pesgaming. I'll try putting this as delicately as possible. The day before I posted them, I found something I wasn't supposed to find, and, I got into a bit of a mood swing because of that. I won't lie, I snuck out without my mother or my friend knowing (my mum had come to stay with us because of something that had happened earlier on), and I got pretty drunk. Then I saw the kits you posted. They were bloody amazing, compared to mine at least. And when you said that my Swansea kits weren't really very up to par, it kinda hit my nerve. I thought, "my life is already *bleep*ed up, but I don't want my 'online life', (as I called it at the time) to be pretty *bleep*ed up too", so the next day, I pleaded with the friend I mentioned earlier, who's amazing at using Gimp and PS, to make those kits for me. And immediately after, I posted them here. He thought I'd gotten over the previous day, but I don't think I had. After which I had a little girl's outburst here, and went offline. At first, I didn't want to come back at all, because in my mind, "my online was *bleep*ed up now too". But about four days later, I opened my email, and I saw some from Neo saying that someone notified me. If I recall correctly, it was SacredHavok a couple of times, and maybe Dion ks 11, once. They said something like where's Kaharius, and when's he coming back. And around that time, surprisingly, I also got an email from High Road. He very kindly told me that disregarding everything that happened, I was always welcome back on Neo. I told him that I wasn't planning on coming any time soon, to which he said that you had also apologized and stuff, and I told him I was really sorry about the way I acted, and I told him to tell you the same. After that, he told me that even if I wasn't planning on coming soon, I could always look at the PES14 forum as a sort of a new start. So yeah, I came back then, a little bit more mature, I hope. But the first thing I did the moment I came back was send an apology to High Road and you. And if that wasn't enough, I'll apologize right now, mate. I'm sorry I acted the way I did, I shouldn't have doe that, I was not in my right senses, and I acted out of blind stupidity. This goes out to everyone out there, I really am sorry, but I did not rip them off.
In hindsight though, I think saying I did rip them off would have been easier for me. But I wasn't thinking right, hence all this drama and a damaging blow to my reputation as a kit maker.
Tommy Vercetti: Well, I apologize as well. I admit I acted a bit out of line. Being heavily involved in the graphics community, I'm not very fond of rippers. Moving on.
Judging from your previous avatar(Van Persie) you're, a United fan, right? Is this something you were born into or? What was your first experience as a United fan? What was your favorite, and saddest moments as a fan as well.
Kaharius: Thanks. No, I understand. You did what you had to. Yes, moving on.
No, I'm a Real Madrid fan, but I just randomly put the Van Persie and United logo in my avatar. Of course, I'm a United fan. Always been one, always will be. And for the record, I don't like Real very much. Nah, I wasn't borin into it. My dad used to follow football, but in India, you're mostly never born into football loving families. If anything, you're born into cricket loving families. It's like a *bleep*ing religion here. And there's only one nation you're gonna support, and that's India. The cricket clubs and such came much later, around 2010 or something like that. But I grew up playing both cricket and football. And slowly I started watching football too. The first match I'd ever watched was when I had just turned five years old, in 1999 where United beat Arsenal in the FA Cup semis replay. There was one guy who ran almost the entire length of the pitch and then smashed it home to win the game for us, and a couple of years later, I found out that it was Ryan Giggs. I also saw the highlights of the United-Southampton match, where United had won 2-1. I actually loved the way they played, and I only knew two guys names back then; Yorke and Cole, because those were the only two names I could figure out from what the commentator was saying, lol. I actually thought Yorke was spelt Yolk, as in egg yolk, for about a year, I think. Sometime later, a friend of mine told me about Beckham too, and I instantly liked him as well, mostly because my friend liked him. So, I guess you could call that my first experience as a United fan, although I've never once been to any of their matches, because I've never been to the UK.
My favourite moment would definitely have to be the time they won the treble, in 1999, although I didn't know about it back then. Football matches weren't shown on TV as much then, as they do now. They showed very few matches, especially the major ones including the finals and the cup, I came to realize that United had actually won the treble a couple of years later. But if that doesn't count, my other favourite moment would have to be the Champions League finals against Chelsea in 2008. The drama leading right up to the penalty shoot out was had me so tensed, And when Van Der Saar pulled off that amazing save to deny Anelka, I was running around house screaming in delight like a banshee.
Saddest moment would be.. when we lost the CL final the next season, against Barcelona. We were absolutely hammered, and I think Fergie also said that Barca were the better side. Another one was the FA Cup final against Arsenal, where we lost in the penalty shoot out. I remember Scholes' face then, he looked so dejected at the time. Made me sad as well. My hatred for Arsenal increased tenfold from then.
Tommy Vercetti: So United through and through eh? Very good! Sad to see that you don't like us. I guess us knocking you out of the CL last season with a goal from the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo of all players didn't help, huh?
How do you feel about Ronaldo? Love him or hate him, he's probably one of the best players of all time. Being a United fan you most likely idolized him. What was your first reaction when the news broke out that he signed for the European titan Real Madrid for the astonishing £80 Million?
Kaharius: Well, the only reason I don't like Real is that they bought some of our best players. Ruud van Nistelrooy, Ronaldo, Beckham and Heinze. But I'd always liked Ozil, Di Maria, Xabi Alonso, Modric, Sahin and now Isco, if that helps.
No it didn't. Bloody Turkish referee, can't remember his stupid name. Nani's foul was not enough to warrant a red card man. Definitely a yellow, but not a red. If a much more sensible referee was there, we'd probably have won the match.
Ronaldo's absolutely amazing. My love for him has declined since he went to Real, so he'll earn it when he comes back to United. But I still have a great deal of respect for the guy. I usually go against him in arguments just because he left us for Real, but in all honesty, I think Ronaldo and Messi are equally legendary.
I was actually pretty stumped when I came to know about his transfer, and I went on a rant in school about how he betrayed us and how I hated him because he was a traitor and stuff. Think I've matured from then on to recognize his decision, even though it was probably stupid. He would have done much better had he stayed.
Tommy Vercetti: You got any other players you fancy? Messi? Iniesta? Rooney?
We know you love United, you support any other club or sports team?
Lyonnais: Any other players he fancies? I don't think he swings that way Serg.
Tommy Vercetti: I knew I chose the wrong word. Shame there's no edit button Ignore that word Kaharius.
Lyonnais: Naw, mate you used the most appropriate word. Definitely keeping it in the interview.
Kaharius: Nah mate, I don't fancy players, sorry. But it looks like you might. Do you?
As I said, Messi is right up there with Ronaldo. Iniesta's an amazing player. One of the best in his position out there. Rooney.. There's just one way to describe him. An absolute *bleep*. Both in the good way, and the bad way. He's got a lot of attitude, but he sure can back his words with his technique. He's been fantastic this season, one of our few bright spots, during our dark start. He's playing much better, with much less attitude, much less anger, and much more hair. But I think one of my favourite players currently is Vidic. At least he was, until this season. A rock at the defensive end, I think I based my style around his when I started playing amateur football for my school team and my local club. Of course, I was a bit more versatile.
Lyonnais: I can actually confirm that Sergio does fancy Ronaldo a bit. He wants him deeply m8.
Vidic is amazing. What a hard man he is. Almost gets he neck broken, and still looks normal. I've become accustomed to seeing him bleeding on the pitch.
Tommy Vercetti: If only I had one chance with.....Never mind not important.
Alrighty, enough of sports. Let's talk Neo! How long did it take you to go from lurker to finally hitting that register button? I'm guessing you were memorized by the fancy Avatars and Signatures.
Kaharius: Wow. A dark side of Sergio (or should I call you Tommy?) that's coming out just now.
He is, I know, and even though he's been out of form this season, I think he's still among the top current defenders in the world, and definitely one of the best in the Premier League. Doesn't matter if his age is catching up.
Tommy Vercetti: You said you'd keep it a secret Adam!
Btw, you didn't answer my question before your post.
Kaharius: Well, not that long actually. I'd always looked online for some decent formations I could use for different teams, or when I'm playing against my friends, but only during PES13 did I stumble across the SOMS' ideas and concepts. And I was mesmerized by them, not memorized by avatars or sigs. I was looking for formations, and I saw a couple in this site called evoweb or something like that, and I kept looking at the next links in google, when I came across this site and another called PESChronicles. In the other site, I just saw the story of one guy, Not Greg, and here I saw stories by a bunch of different people. So that really pushed me to visit here more often. Of course Parmar1993's story was a huge hit, but I also liked the DL and ETD. All this coupled by the fact that I needed a distraction, made me register here, and begin a SOMS that ended the same way it started. Prematurely.
I can't find the PSChronicles site now though, think it's closed down.
There were many others but I don't think they lasted very long.
Tommy Vercetti: So you browse any other forums on the massive network called Neoseeker or just PES and the Football Forum?
Also, how are liking the PES Community on here? Any members you close with?
I think you should take over from here Lyonnais this interview needs moar charisma.
Kaharius: Yes, I do. Music's always been close to me, so there's that forum. I just browse the forum, looking for some new band or some good song I haven't heard before. I also post in the Thinker's Lounge, The Lobby, Football Manager 14, and the NBA2k14 forums.
Apart from that I just go through FL and the FF for a few laughs.
I love the PES Community. Everyone's so friendly and nice, at the risk of sounding like a little girl.
Hmm, SacredHavok's a bit close to me, because we've chatted for a long time, and we stay in the same city. And Dion ks 11's one of the first friends I made here on Neo, apart from that, I really don't think I'm close to one particular person. I'd like to think everyone here know me well.
Lyonnais: How's the social life? Got more game than Nathan, Parmar1993 and myself?
Kaharius: Hmm. Social life. After a long time, my social life is beginning to get better, and hopefully it will be back to normal soon enough. I'm beginning to be my old jolly self again, with the lame jokes, and stupid comments, according to my friends at least.
And by 'game' I assume you mean 'girlfriends'?
If so, presuming you guys have got absolutely none, then no. And I don't think I will for a long time to come.
Lyonnais: ofc i mean girlfriends you nob
I'm hoping SacredHavok is setting you up with that music/song he was talking about doing for that one girl a few GDs ago, heh.
Well, there could be other meanings too.
I'll be glad if he sets me up with the song rather than the girl.
Lyonnais: Well, we'll coming to the end of our interview so how about you shout out to your shout out buddies man!
Kaharius: Haha, alright!
First off, I'd like to shout out to you guys, Lyonnais, and Tommy Vercetti, thanks for the interview guys, even if I had to cut it short. Sorry about that though.
Tommy Vercetti Thanks a bunch, mate! For everything you've done since my arrival here. Again, sorry for whatever happened in the PES13 forum.
SacredHavok, keep them songs coming, bud!
Dion ks 11 where are you these days?
High Road Thanks for reaching out to me when I'd left, and letting me come back, even though you may not have liked it. Can't see where you've *bleep*ed off now, though. Also, where's the bloody template?
Parmar1993 Thanks for helping me start my own kits without HR's help. And I hope you like the kits I made. They're my very first this year, so even if you don't, just say you do.
Saeglopur, we should start our own Travels thread, eh? Especially once I come back after New Year's. And what's the news on the DBC forum?
Lucas9 God knows where this guy is, but I'm missing your SOMS, bud! You were my only other inspiration for me in the PES13 forum to start my own SOMS.
Lyonnais: Excellent mate. And I'm glad I got a mention even if it was only for doing the interview with you, ahah. Got a statement for the people of PES before you sign off? A truth you've learned on neo? A lesson that can be brought back to our daily lives?
Kaharius: Well, you can take the mention for anything else you want too.
Let's see. A lot of philosophical thoughts are going through my head, but none resonate with the words "Neo" or "PES". Why is this so tough? But I think I've learned a great deal from my time so far in here. Small things like patience, but you can definitely apply that in our daily lives. So far as I'm concerned though, Neo and especially the PES Community has been a major factor to help me get back on my feet after last year, and hopefully it will continue to be so.
Keep being awesome, and keep shining.
Thank you, and good day! Hope you enjoyed this boring interview.
Lyonnais: Wasn't boring to me! I quite enjoyed it myself, and I enjoyed learning much more about you! Always thought you were a solid poster, but I've never had the opportunity to sit down with you and actually have a chat and I've learned much more about you and I'm grateful for that! You're quite an interesting character as well, and your english isn't half bad either!
Glad you've become a part of the PES community, and let me thank you again for volunteering for being interviewed! Have fun with your vacation man!
Kaharius: Well, thanks. Oh so just because I'm Indian, it means by English "isn't half bad"? That's so racially stereotypical. I'm offended.
Thanks, you too. And to all of you out there, a very Merry Christmas!
Lyonnais: Better than Parmar1993's and he was born and raised in England.
No problem man! Merry Christmas!
And a Happy New Year.

Kaharius, release date will be announced this month some time. In the mean time, there's still the Nets mode in Cricket Academy which you can download for free and practise batting on your computer. If you have a PS3 or 360 controller, you can connect those to your laptop and practise that way. Otherwise, hopefully the game will be out in the next couple of months. Are you still in Dubai at the moment? Not sure how long you were going out there for - that was you, right? Haha!
