Welcome to EB Community News! Our special guest this evening is Ras 74. Sure, you know him for whacking Hinckley, but he's so much more than that, as we'll learn in the next half hour.
Let's switch over to cub reporter Staudie right now, for his in-depth interview!
*scene switches to Ras 74 and Staudie*
Now you are annoying me ;-)
Wait until he starts the interview ...
Q. Why the name and the odd sigfig?
A. Well I was like many other people not that creative when I first signed up.
That was back on FBTB *Can I say FBTB or will it just say "MEGABLOCK" instead*
My full name is Rickard Rasmusson, so I just took the first 3 letters in my last name and added 74 which is my year of birth. Most people call me "Ras".
Donīt really know what you mean by odd Sigfig though.
Q. How long have you collected lego?
A. Since I was 3 years old really. But then I had a Dark-Age in about 14 years.
I started to collect again in 2002 in the fall. It was then I discovered that LEGO did Star Wars. That is really one of the biggest themes that brought peolpe out of the closet.
Are you making a revelation of a different sort here? :-P
Q. What is your favourite Set?
A. WOW!! there really is so many to pick from... Can I say more then 1?
The RGS, the old AT-AT (that also is my latest project to improve a bit *shhh, donīt tell anyone*), and offcourse I must pick Jango Fettīs Slave I since that is the set that brought me back.
Q. What is your Favourite Theme?
A. Isnīt that quite obvious??!! A blind man could tell.
That doesn't help in his case ...
Q. Best In Real Life Lego Moment?
A. When my daughter was born! Oh you mean LEGO wise... First one was discovering LEGO had made Star Wars! Second one was when I found out that there was forums and several more persons as crazy as I was. The third one must have been when I met Copmike - aka CM. It is really nice to have a good friend that just loves the same thing as I do, and that he lives so close to me *donīt move to the wrong side of the country damn it* (internal joke in Sweden, meaning: we live on the westcost, and he is from the east cost = wrong side of the country. He has taken a job there for 5 years).
Then of course all the Events when we can actually meet those people that we talk to everyday in "Real-life", that is so awesome.
And least but one of the most important things, The News!! WOW is that exciting!!
Uh huh. Here at EB News, we're just full of excitement.
Q. Best "HINCKLEY!!!!" Moment?
A. Hasnīt been yet... But as the force is strong with me... I can see it will happen between 18 of November to 26 of November!! Stay tuned everyone out there, don't hold your breath, but it will be a blast!!
... and in an unexpected announcement, EB News would like to mention that it will be covering this event with a big menage-a-whatever interview of the whole lot of you and your stories from this historic meeting!
Q. Best Eb Moment?
A. Well that question was answered earlier by accident so will you just continue??
Aw, does he have to?
Q. Am I annoying yet?
A. I will let you know exactly 2 seconds ahead!
Q. How bout now?
A. You're still good... But that is just because I like the job you've done so far with all those interviews. If I was your first victim, and had no idea where this was going, and didn't know you at all, I would've strangled you with the wire of your microphone when you just said "Why the..."
An excellent idea.
Q. If you could design a custom set, what would it be? Whatever you want. No "Wack a EB member" sets please.
A. That is another good question. Something Star Warisch for sure... Iīm pretty sure TLC is still fullfilling dreams, come back with this question when the Licence run out, and I will answer it then.
Q. Im sure you've met some EB members here. Can you describe them to us?
A. Yes I have, and boy is that a blast. You could see the Pyramids in Giza, Coloseum in Rome, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but the one thing you really must do once in your life is to come to an EB event.
Well since I've been to them all I have met a few of our great members.
Several of the ones you've interviewed actually.
As for descriptions... come and see for yourselves!!
Ya big tease ...
Q. Can we see your lair? We like lairs... Makes us feel like were ploting agains M#g$b!o%*5...
A. I have no updated pics, but there will be in a near future. Here is the most recent of my LEGO-display-room and here is my full BS gallery... knock yourself out!!
Couldn't you knock him out for us?
Q. Ok, now, Shoe size and prefered underwear colour? X-D
A. Big hard 43s and white!!
I can understand the shoe question, since it'll end up in his megablocks one day, but I don't get the underwear part at all.
Q. Who should we Interview Next?
A.. I would really like to read interviews with Mutley777 and the beautiful (hope it is ok to say your girlfriend is pretty, Apo) Aredhel. Can you do that?
You never know who might be on here next! (the way he does the interviews, I never know)
Thanks for joining us!
Nice talking to you, if you cross my path again... wear hockeyprotections!!
*static and interferance, then the signal changes to something unexpected*
New Voice: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. From the Meridian Room in the Park Plaza Hotel in New York City, we bring you the music of Ramón Raquello and his orchestra. With a touch of the Spanish, Ramón Raquello leads off with "La Cumparsita."
*"La Cumparsita" begins playing, then fades out*
Second New Voice: Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt our program of dance music to bring you a special bulletin from the Intercontinental Radio News. At twenty minutes before eight, central time, Professor Farrell of the Mount Jennings Observatory, Chicago, Illinois, reports observing several explosions of incandescent gas, occurring at regular intervals on the planet Mars. The spectroscope indicates the gas to be hydrogen and moving towards the earth with enormous velocity.
Professor Pierson of the Observatory at Princeton confirms Farrell's observation, and describes the phenomenon as, quote, "like a jet of blue flame shot from a gun," unquote.
We now return you to the music of Ramón Raquello, playing for you in the Meridian Room of the Park Plaza Hotel, situated in downtown New York.
*the music resumes, ends, and the crowd applauds*
That was odd.
Oh, sorry boss, I was playing with a knob.
You are a knob.
Oh yeah, well you're a ...
*static and interferance again*
New Voice: Ladies and gentlemen, I have a grave announcement to make.
Incredible as it may seem, both the observations of science and the evidence of our eyes lead to the inescapable assumption that those strange beings who landed in the Jersey farmlands tonight are the vanguard of an invading army from the planet Mars.
Um... Staudie... are you playing with that knob again?
No boss, honest.
I see. Well, in that case folks, it's been a real pleasure being with you this evening but we need to go now. Nothing is wrong, of course. No reason to panic. Everyone should go about their business like normal. I'll see you all next week!
*imperialshadows is seen running around, grabbing guns and ammo, barricading windows and doors as the camera fades*
*camera fades back in to a drastically different scene, including a couple of aliens sitting in front of the camera*
Three-eyed Alien: Welcome back! This evening, we're here to introduce ourselves, your new alien overlords. We mean you no harm, more or less, so long as you cooperate with our demands. MARS NEEDS WOMEN! Bring them immediately to this studio, and we might let you pathetic little beings live. Maybe. Bring hot ones and you'll improve your odds.
*as the other alien tries to act menacing and reaches for his disruptor pistol, his mask slips off and reveals none other than Staudie*
A spy! *the alien whacks Staudie with a nearby oar, but unfortunately dislodges his own mask, revealing imperialshadows* :-$
Happy Halloween! X-D
