AskPaul LIVE 2k13 Questions thread

Postby Paul » 02 Dec 2013, 16:30

Hey Everyone,

The rest of the crew is down at the Child's Play Charity Dinner and hanging out in Seattle this week and, what with Desert Bus and all, we haven't done a podcast in a while. In a similar situation last year, I did a live Q&A that seemed to be pretty well received, so I am going to try it again (but hopefully this time with a working Twitch chat :wink: )

Post your questions in this thread and tune in to the LoadingReadyRun Twitch channel starting at 3:00PM PST on Thursday, December 5th and I will answer as many questions as I can from this thread and the Twitch chat. (It will be archived as a LRRcast if you can't watch live)

Think of this like a reddit AMA: Obviously, there may be some things that I can't talk about, but I will try to answer as much possible. This is a good opportunity to ask any questions you have that are specific to me, videos I have written, the LRR website or would take too long when all of us are answering. Silly questions will be given the attention they deserve.

See you on Thursday!

UPDATE: continuation of stream rescheduled to Saturday, December 7 at 3:00

For those of us who aren't in either of the same hemispheres as LRR, here is the start time, converted to whatever your local time is: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/f ... 15&p1=1091

Now I have to come up with an interesting question...

What do you find most difficult about writing sketches? What's most difficult about transforming the scripts into videos?


Also, why are you Paul?

Dear Paul,

So, talk about the fan book and your reactions to it.

The following set of questions are (most of) the regulars for The Guardian's Q&A: one sentence answers will do, as there's quite a lot of them, and as a few of them get quite personal feel free to give completely glib answers that completely avoid actually answering the question. Or just answer all of them like that, if you wish.

When were you happiest?

What is your greatest fear?

What is your earliest memory?

What living person do you most admire?

What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

What would your super power be?

If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?

What is your favourite smell?

What is your favourite word?

What is your favourite book?

Cat or dog?

What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?

Is it better to give or to receive?

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

What do you owe your parents?

What does love feel like?

Have you ever said 'I love you' without meaning it?

What's the worst job you've done?

If you could go back in time, where would you go?

When did you last cry, and why?

How do you relax?

What is the closest you've ever come to death?

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?

How would you like to be remembered?

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

Hello and good day Paul,

Is your post count padded?

It seems you've been letting your facial hair grow out, will IT be coming back?

What is your favorite mana color and or combination?

What do you personally have planned for streaming?

Pertaining to the previous question: Will there be more Ask Paul Live's?

What are your plans for your, probably soon, post world domination?

Paul,

First of all, a great big hug from across the internet. *Hugs*

There's a lot of really cool educational content going up on Youtube (Crash Course, the Brain Scoop, Minute Physics, etc). Have you guys (LRR) ever considered filming educational videos? Perhaps by partnering with someone in science or history or a local museum?

Is there any subject you really enjoy talking about that you don't get to talk about very much? Can you talk about it now (something about it you recently learned, perhaps)?

When you're tackling a challenging bit of programming, do you have any tips or tricks? Also are you on github?

I know it's not really your schtick now, but do you ever wish you could do more editing of videos? Is there any part of the video making process that you would like to do more of?

Which is your favorite hat? Which is your favorite hat that you actually wear with regularity?

Have you ever considered doing a one-man Feed Dump, starring you? I think it'd be pretty great. <3

Are there things you can do now, that you can't do when the rest of the crew is around? If so, what? (As in, "away in Seattle", not just simply "not on the podcast")

Why do you remove your glasses when balancing things on your head? Is there an actual benefit to it, or do you just want us to be transfixed by your eyes?

I fear the following q have been already asked, and answerd in past podcasts, and the muses are cruel and capricious, but will the Wariors of Darkess return?
Also, do the crew have enough next gen consoles to do "Four PS4 and one Xbox One" video?
Finally why aren't you in Seattle?

What was the first video game you "completed?" Either got all the way through the story, did that plus all the side missions/bonus content, got all the collectables, got all the achievments, etc.

Dear American Medical Association Paul,

We all know that you work for your own company, as "creator of stuff" but what do you actually do day to day? Could you run us through a normal week?

You are portrayed as "the new guy" in Friday night but clearly you are as experienced as the rest of the crew. Do you gravitate to any style of play? Do you play paper outside of office commander games?

Have you now fully recovered from your paulsy or are there any lasting effects?

Edited to add: I have a lot of questions now about "will this or this or that..." but I think you will have a better answer than I could question so I will leave it with just this.

Checkpoint?

(easy to skip question)
We know about Tally and Jer, James and Ashley, Kathleen and Graham, we have also heard about some of the other crew members being in relationships then not being in them, but we have never heard about you. Are you just not big into the whole relationship thing or have you just been private about your relationships over the years.
