What country do you live in, and if applicable, what state?
I live in the Tampa Bay area of the sweltering hot and humid state of Florida
How do you choose what Miis you're going to make? Do you have a process?
I'm a huge movie buff, so I go over to my ridiculous collection of DVDs, most of them from Wal-Mart (thank you giant bargain bin, Virtuosity for 4 bucks!). Then I look at celebs that have a distinctive trait and blow it out of proportion, big noses, giant foreheads, you name it. I also think of some not so famous characters in our pop culture society, like Waldo Faldo from Family Matters or Michael Ironside (the bad guy in Total Recall). You'll look at them and be like,"hey, it's that guy in that movie!" Most actors or characters have that expression people recognize, If you can create that expression, the Mii comes alive and you have that "Aha" moment. I think the ultimate Miis are the ones can make you laugh or say "whoa, how'd he do that?"
Which Mii do you feel is your best so far?
I'd love to say my SpaceBall Miis, Lonestar and Barf, my Steven Seagal with the "get off my land" expression, or my Tanooki suit Mario, but I'd have to say my best is John Belushi. Who do you guys think is my best Mii?
What one (and only one) Mii piece would you add to the Mii Channel if you could?
I want to make a really fat mii, like huge. Jabba the Hutt style or Rosie O'Donnell. Ouch
Do you do any sort of art by trade? What other creative outlets do you pursue apart from the Mii Channel?
I like to draw and write. If I could, I'd play video games for the rest of my life. My goal in life is to have no goals. I'd like to write a couple scripts and do a little computer animation in the future.
What's your favorite experience with the Wii so far?
Probably the first time I went up to bat in Wii-Sports and my Mii character had my batting stance. I was like, "whoa, I bat like a woman!"
What game do you feel is missing from the Wii line-up most right now, given the Wii's unique control mechanic?
I would like to say a game where I can chop someone's head off with a lightsaber online, but what are you gonna do? I would like to see some real sports games for the Wii, with real players; although, I do love batting with Klinger from MASH. Third-party developers should be jumping at the opportunity to make some really cool sports games.
Any additional props, plugs or comments?
I love you Jose
Favorite movie and TV show?
I love zombie movies, but my favorite movie ever is A Clockwork Orange. I also love Arnold's old 80's movies (Total Recall was the ****) . My favorite TV show is Family Guy or anything that can make me laugh. I can't stand reality TV, except for COPS and Scare Tactics(YOUTUBE it now).
