When were you in cast, when did you join, or how long have you been in cast?
I joined Crazed Imaginations in October 1993, though I was in a few other casts before then.
What is your favorite part to play?
Recently I've really been enjoying Frank the most. I was scared of playing the part for a long time, but now I feel comfortable with it, and I like doing it.
Which scene is your favorite?
Brad's bedroom scene. We usually find some way to make it interesting for us, within the limits of the rules we have to follow in Encinitas.
Which character is your favorite?
I've always admired Columbia for being the honest one. Of the characters who interact with others (that is, not counting Eddie and Crim), she's the only one who doesn't betray anyone.
Do you have a favorite callback?
My favorite callback to do every week is during the opening credits. "Richard, Richard, he's our man! If he can't do it, Richard can! Hey! That's the wrong fucking Richard! Well, I don't give a Suschitzky! What I really want to know is who creamed on Clifford!" I love it because it's so long and it keeps referring to the stuff that's coming up on the screen.
My favorite one-time callback was back in May 1995, the show after a guy stole a tank from a National Guard armory and drove around San Diego until he was shot by police. The callout was when Rocky popped out of the creation tank, all dirty and injured, and Janet asked, "Did they do this to you?" James yelled out, "No, the SDPD did this after I stole this tank!" My retelling of it now requires too much setup, but at the time, it was hilarious.
Where are you from?
I grew up in LA, but I came to San Diego to attend UCSD back in the day. I love San Diego now and don't want to leave.
What do you do for work or what do you study in school?
My current job title is "Web Producer." I fix websites.
What interests you beside RHPS?
Role-playing games, PS3 games, City of Heroes, science, podcasts, LiveJournal, and Twitter.
What is your favorite non-RHPS movie?
It's a tough call, but if I had to pick another movie to obsess over every week for the rest of my life, I'd go with Blade Runner. (I like all the versions. The voice-over of the theatrical release gives it a very different tone, but that was the one I watched over and over in my youth. I admire the director's cut too, but I'm familiar enough with the voice-over that it doesn't bother me.)
What is your favorite book or who is your favorite author?
I don't have one favorite book now. I read too much on the web and not enough novel-length stuff. I've really enjoyed Malcolm Gladwell's non-fiction books: The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers.
A little more about me.
I've been at this a long time. I plan to be in it for at least a few more years. I want to be able to to legitimately say I've been to 1000 Rocky shows. (Right now I believe I'm in the 700s.)
