TAMUSIC is kinda hit-or-miss.
Yeah. :/
I was looking for something not-TAM, but I ended up opening 15 videos in tabs and getting distracted :derp:

What is your opinion on Conventions, and the attendance of such.

Muuuuuch better.

They're good times.  I usually go to multiple conventions a year!  Just, only one of them is anime-related. :|

TAM is much better when he isn't throwing other instruments in besides his own piano and violin.

What he said.

Is the journey more important than the destination?

What's the greatest journey you've been on?

How far can you trace back your lineage?

Depends on both.

Quote
What's the greatest journey you've been on?

Driving from Illinois to Georgia overnight whilst listening to HP&TDH, which had just come out that day.  Wheeee!

Quote
How far can you trace back your lineage?

Both sides of my family are, near as I can tell, Irish as early as 3 generations ago.

What are the other conventions about?

Automobiles, aerospace, work stuff.  The only two that are constant are Otakon and the DC Car Show, which I hit every year.  Others depend on where they are and if I'm invited, generally.

If given the chance, would you live in Gensokyo? Where?

If you were a youkai, what would your ability be?

If you were a playable character, what would your shot type be like?

I wouldn't mind a visit, but I like modern conveniences too much to live there.

Shotguns and rocket launchers.

I watched it while it was airing and obsessed over it.  Fantastic show, love it and its spinoffs (even the bad ones).  Except the various mangas.

If you could point a rocket launcher at anything, what would it be?

Is it over 9000?

Can you extra stage?

I think Yukari is strongest Youkai bec---    ** evades danmaku ** I almost died there.

I am sure, like many of us, you also dislike powerlevel discussions. On MotK you are always first one to nuke them down ( :V ) could you perhaps shed some light and opinions on why powerlevel discussions are horrible?

It's over 8000.  The English dub got it wrong. ;_;

With practice.  I'm better at focusing on Extra Stages than stuff like Lunatic runs.

They serve no real purpose and have no tangible resolution other than people getting tired of arguing a meaningless subjective opinion.  It's also wonderful flamebait.  I don't think anything good has ever come out of a powerlevel discussion.

Interesting viewpoint and somewhat share the same opinion. A serious continuation:

What if ZUN started a power level discussion? Would you engage in it? Or would it be just as stupid.

(I spawned this question because I heard this rumour from my classmate who said Brandon Sanderson involved in a powerlevel discussion with Vin vs another char from another author.)

I don't think he would start one at all, frankly.  That's not even really the point of danmaku and runs contrary to everything he's done with his universe thus far.

Hmm, what spell-card have you had the most trouble capturing?

Which character (not including Extra bosses) have you had the most trouble with?

I'm sure you've set contests for the IH before (I may be wrong) so which contest did you enjoy setting the most? If I am wrong, what would you set?

Suika's Deep Fog Labyrinth in stb destroyed me for a very long time, so probably that one.

Hm.  Probably Remilia.  I was always terrible at EoSD.

I can't remember any contests I've run anytime recently.  I'll occasionally give out IP for exceptional performance in Mafia, but that isn't really fitting.

Shikieiki.

Yukari seems like she'd have the most interesting stories to tell, assuming she wouldn't be asleep.

SCIENCE

What the hell is mafia, anyway? I know it's some game but

A cooperative/competitive forum game that requires post analysis and a significant time investment.

Top five websites you use in terms of browsing time?

Hm.  Prolly Reuters, here, and a bunch of blogs.  Maybe gamefaqs.

Favorite meal?

No such thing.  I have a pretty flexible diet.  All-time favorite is probably slow-cooked beef ribs.

Can you catch a missile?

Guess it depends on the missile and if someone casually tossed one to me versus threw/launched one at my head.

Quote
Who was your childhood hero(es)?

I spent a few minutes thinking about this and couldn't come up with an answer.  Ho ho!

Quote
What would you see if you could meet him/her/them?

Given the above response, probably either stare blankly or look at him/her/it and go "ohhhhhhhhhh right!"

Question about the IRC, not sure if you'd know this: How does Keine work? I'm figuring she's some sort of bot, but when she says unscripted things, who puts them in?

What was the first video game you really got into?

Keine is a supybot with added functionality.  I believe you can /msg [KEINE] commands for a list of things to do with her.  Replace [KEINE] with whatever her current nick is.  The command might be "commands" or "help commands" or something; I'd test but I'm not at home atm.

Hm.  Probably something on the Apple IIgs, my first computer.  Very likely either some educational game or one of the King's Quest games.

I generally prefer story over gameplay, but I can live with either one.

Story: FF6.  Action: River City Ransom.  Both: MGS (the whole series, but 1 and 3 are my favorites)

If you were forced to eat one type of cuisine the rest of your life(nationality-wise), what would it be?

How important is the soundtrack to the amount of enjoyment you get from a game? Can you like a game despite shortcomings because of a good musical score?

On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, did you like Chrono Cross? :derp:
