Mister Phes: Ok, let's begin the interview
Mister Phes: Why do you call yourself Strauder?
Mister Phes: And why has your name become Straudie in the space of 6 minutes?
Staudie: Well, my surname is stauder, and s-HEEEEY!
Staudie: I set it to automatically update itself, but it doesnt seem to be working...
Mister Phes: Are you wearing nice deoderant?
Staudie: Yes... yes I am...
Mister Phes: Well that's marvellous!
Staudie: Now, Welcome to EB news Presents Mister Phes. How does it feel to be the first live interview?
Mister Phes: When conducting an interview you should always smell nice
Mister Phes: It feels like the bluebird of happiness has swooped down and carried me away
Staudie: Also sorry about you spending the past months behind the dumpster forming a primitve society because
Staudie: I forgot to tell security to let you in...
Mister Phes: Well what kind of host are you?
Mister Phes: Do you have no shame lad?
Mister Phes: Yes, the fresh air was nice but it was getting cold
Mister Phes: And ice was beginning to forum on my rapier
Mister Phes: When those things get ice of them they go rusty
Staudie: Who is asking the questions here?
Mister Phes: It appears we both are
Staudie: So it does...
Mister Phes: So if you like, I'll ask the questions
Staudie: Ok, time to start.
Staudie: Wait what?
Mister Phes: I thought we had already started
Mister Phes: I hope you're getting all this
Mister Phes: It'll be a guarenteed ratings booster
Staudie: I am.. Kind of...
Staudie: Yeah... if you ever actually answer the first question...
Mister Phes: I've answered all the questions you've asked so far
Staudie: Fair enough...
Mister Phes: I thought you'd run so I took over
Mister Phes: Ooooooooo! This has smileys too?
Mister Phes: :D <- A importaint time in the history of Phes, the discovery of the smilie.
Mister Phes: Now, how many interviews have you conducted?
Staudie: So, Why the name Mister Phes?
Staudie: 20 in the first season of EB news
Staudie: 23 in the second season
Staudie: and 1 review.
Mister Phes: Well why not Mister Phes?
Mister Phes: My full name is the Illustrious Mister Phes but I think that's too long for some people
Mister Phes: So I shorten it to Mister Phes
Staudie: Go on...
Staudie: Shadows whould have given up at this point...
Mister Phes: Well I don't go any further with the shortening, but some shorten it even further to Phes...
Staudie: Ok, What actually got you into lego all those years ago?
Mister Phes: Well, who is better - you or Shadows? =P
Staudie: I think you would have annoyed him away by now...
Mister Phes: Once upon a time when I was a young laddie I was in Kmart
Staudie: That or all the AFOLs are like this and they just pretend to be serious so they can make fun of
Staudie: TFOLs... Conspiracy!
Mister Phes: I was browsing through the toy section when something caught my interest
Staudie: Was it a nickle on the floor?
Mister Phes: It was a box... With a little pirate digging up a treasure chest with a monkey hanging off the side
Mister Phes: No, it's highly unlikely that a nickle would ever be on the floor in this part of the world
Mister Phes: I picked up the box and examined it
Mister Phes: It immediately captured my imagination
Mister Phes: Everything about it seemed so inspiring
Mister Phes: The photography... The artwork...
Mister Phes: I just had to have it
Mister Phes: And it was only $4 so I could afford it
Mister Phes: And that's how it began...
Mister Phes: One small set
Mister Phes: Soon lead to another small set
Mister Phes: And another...
Mister Phes: And another...
Staudie: Have you considered writing a book?
Mister Phes: Until I decided it was time to save for something slightly larger
Mister Phes: What makes you think I don't already write books?
Staudie: Before you say it, let me get a mop, i am droolig over here...
Staudie: Well you definatley are chatty.... i WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF YOU WRITE BOOKS
Staudie: Damn capslock...
Mister Phes: Did you know your CAPS LOCK is turned on?
Staudie: I was too lazy to re-write it without the capslock
Mister Phes: SOME PEOPLE THINK WRITING IN CAPITAL LETTERS IS SHOUTING
Mister Phes: NOW WHY MIGHT THAT BE?
Staudie: Your standing on a trapdoor...
Mister Phes: I thought you might be some kind of psychopath and therefore I'd need to make a quick exit
Staudie: More like a Garbage disposal...
Mister Phes: No, it's connected to a slippery slide
Mister Phes: I paid good money for that
Mister Phes: Titanium
Staudie: For some reason the whole section of useless staff fell down there... Never found them... We did get
Staudie: this great non-dairy creamer tough...
Mister Phes: Now were you conducting an intereview?
Mister Phes: You don't seem to be taking the lead
Mister Phes: Some interviewee are such loose cannons
Mister Phes: They fire off in all directions
Staudie: Ok, Next question, What is your all time favourite theme, and anything you would like to share with
Staudie: us about it.
Mister Phes: Now was there a question 2?
Mister Phes: Hmmm...
Mister Phes: My favourite theme....
Mister Phes: Now that's a tough one...
Mister Phes: There's so many exciting themes to choose from
Staudie: This is why we don't do live interviews...
Mister Phes: I would have to be Galidor!
Mister Phes: But if it wasn't live I'd never get round to answering the questions
Staudie: *Sound of brain trying to make me gnaw my leg off to escape*
Staudie: Ohh... it's lunch time over here sooon....
Staudie: Good Excuse...
Mister Phes: Excuse?
Mister Phes: There are no excuses here laddie
28 Jul 08, 12:11
Staudie: Ok... Lunch time... I will be back in bout 15 minutes...
28 Jul 08, 12:24
Mister Phes: Most excelelnt!
Mister Phes: Now, back to business
Staudie: So, your favourite theme is pirates yes?
Mister Phes: Absolutely! How did you guess that?
Staudie: You are also wearing a matching pair of socks!
Mister Phes: Brilliant deducation, I must remember to hire you some time...
Staudie: Ok, what would your 3 favourite sets be?
Staudie: On a side note, Shadows is gonna have hell editing this... On a side note staudie actually edited this...
Mister Phes: No, it will be a joy for him. He'll love it and he must remember the JULY NEWSLETTER
Staudie: Subtle arent we?
Mister Phes: I don't know about you, but I'm certainly not
Mister Phes: Three favourite sets
Mister Phes: 6281 Pirates Perilious Pitfall would have to be number one
Mister Phes: 6235 Buried Treasure would be second
Mister Phes: and 6267 Lagoon Lockup would be third
Mister Phes: Next question!
Staudie: Ok next question, have you ever attended a EB meet? If so, how can you describe the rest of the
Staudie: nutjobs on the site?
Staudie: Uhh... Members...
Mister Phes: Ummm... What's an "EB meet"?
Mister Phes: But I can assure you there's many nutjobs on the site
Mister Phes: There's a nutjob interviewing a nutjob right now...
Mister Phes: But don't tell them I said that
Staudie: Ok... Moving on...
Staudie: What is your all time best Lego related moment?
Mister Phes: I think the day that I discovered Pirate LEGO was probably the best
Mister Phes: It just gave me this feeling of intrigue... Excitement... and Creativity...
Mister Phes: It's hard to explain the sensation in words, but it felt really nice
Mister Phes: You don't seem sincerely interested in my answer there
Staudie: I am adding you to the list of people that can replace ImperialShadows...
Mister Phes: Replace ImperialShadows?
Mister Phes: What for?
Staudie: He's a laz-busy man...
Staudie: Ok, next question, your moment of glory on EB would be?
Mister Phes: Moment of glory on Eurobricks?
Mister Phes: I think the day the Pirate Forum created was the most glorious moment
Mister Phes: Finally a place for Pirate LEGO fanatics to congregate and discuss their interest
Mister Phes: Before the Pirate Forum there wasn't really anywhere
Mister Phes: Sure LUGNET had a Pirate section
Staudie: Aha! Also I just noticed you have the title "Weekend warrior" mind explaining?
Mister Phes: Well there's a story behind that
Mister Phes: I'd have to be quite chatty
Mister Phes: Do you think you can handle it?
Mister Phes: Well, I'd reached a point where I was spending too much on Eurobricks
Mister Phes: and I was achieving in other areas
Mister Phes: So I thought the best thing to do was resign
Mister Phes: And I did!
Mister Phes: Made myself a normal user
Mister Phes: Just like that
Staudie: Wait... Your normal? We cant have that! Get the F**K out of my office!
Mister Phes: But apparently there is nobody else in the world who could replace me
Mister Phes: Yes, I was a Eurobricks Grand Duke
Mister Phes: Well for about a week
Staudie: Oh right... I tought your story was over...
Mister Phes: So the other administrators and I came to a compromised
Staudie: What powers does a Grand Duke have? I belive this was never explained.
Mister Phes: And that compromise was I would only have access to the Pirate forum
Mister Phes: A Grand Duke is a user group for users with over 5,000 posts
Staudie: Whaaa? You cant see any other forums?
Mister Phes: Nope
Mister Phes: None
Mister Phes: Just the Pirate Forum
Mister Phes: This frees up enough time to continue to maintain the Pirate Forum
Mister Phes: So now I don't have to resign
Staudie: Well, I guess that means you cant see any interviews we have done... GREAT! That means we can mock
Staudie: you and get away with it!
Mister Phes: Yes, you can
Mister Phes: You can dishonerably defame me and I'll be none the wiser
Mister Phes: Very a very admirable act
Staudie: Yes, I can
Staudie: My job is gettin easyer and easyer...
Mister Phes: Next the interviews will write themselves!
28 Jul 08, 12:52
Staudie: Ok, what do you think about the way TLC is heading this year?
28 Jul 08, 12:55
Staudie: Houston we lost Phes!
Mister Phes: I better answer this carefully in case you're one of their secret agents!
Mister Phes: You might report my answer back to them!
Staudie: Yey! We have phes back!
Staudie: Or at least to Copmike...
Mister Phes: And they might assassainate me
Mister Phes: But more seriously, I'm quite pleased with the 2008 LEGO products
Mister Phes: I've actually purchased some of this year's sets
Staudie: Or liquidate you... I love that word... Liquidate.. Tee-hee...
Mister Phes: I haven't purchased a new LEGO set since 1993
Staudie: You are kidding right?
Staudie: Wow, people realy dont know anything about you...
Mister Phes: Right
Mister Phes: Well...
Mister Phes: No, I'm not kidding
Staudie: Your creepin me out man! It's not contageous is it?
Mister Phes: I purchased my last set before entering my Dark Age in 1993
Mister Phes: Stop being a wuss
Mister Phes: I need to be interview by a man
Mister Phes: A brave man!
Staudie: ACID! My kingdom for a acid bath!
Staudie: Yeah well good luck...
Staudie: Ok, what sets would you like to see TLC prooduce in the future?
Mister Phes: They shouldn't produce any future sets and that would save me money!
Mister Phes: But if they really must
Mister Phes: Then they should give the Pirate fanatics what they want!
Staudie: *Starts typing PM to copmike*
Mister Phes: Yes, do contact him
28 Jul 08, 13:03
Mister Phes: I'm about to elaborate
Mister Phes: The LEGO Group should really expand upon the Imperial Armada theme
Mister Phes: or sub-theme
Mister Phes: There needs to be a huge Spanish Fortress on a 48 x 32 baseplate
Mister Phes: There needs to be proper galleons, bigger than the Black Seas Barracudda and Skulls Eye Schooner
Mister Phes: There needs to be non pirate and military based sets
Mister Phes: We determined in the Pirate Forum a while back it would be nice to see a Dutch Merchants theme
Mister Phes: Focusing the commercial and colonial aspects of life around the time of the golden age of piracy
Mister Phes: Also smaller ships with brickbuilt hulls like the one found in the Imperial Trading Post
Mister Phes: Is that enough? Or do you need more?
Staudie: That's good
Staudie: a few last questions
Staudie: Am I annoying?
Mister Phes: You're not running out are you?
Staudie: Why are you enjoying this?
Mister Phes: Of course
Mister Phes: This is the most fun I've ever had in an interview
Staudie: This aint youf first is it?
Mister Phes: So what happened with the chat history on Cbox?
Mister Phes: I notice the buffer only goes back as far as 13:03
Staudie: It gets deleted after a certain litmit, dont worry I got it all arhived
Staudie: oh right that
Staudie: go to the top, it says "Older Messages"
Mister Phes: I don't have that on my end
Mister Phes: But never mind!
Mister Phes: On with the intereview!
Staudie: Try at the bottom of the messages
Mister Phes: Not there ethier
Mister Phes: Doesn't matter
Mister Phes: Continue
Staudie: Oh well, i will PM you the whole thing if you want
Staudie: So, Am I annyoing?

Mister Phes: I really should give you some lessons
Staudie: Brutally honest...
Mister Phes: How do you know I'm not lying?
Staudie: Your not. I know how annoying I am.
Mister Phes: You sure?
Staudie: What ye think of this
Staudie: http://farm3.static...._e5c2b35030.jpg He wanted to enter it into the pirate contest a while ago...
Mister Phes: A mobile vignette! It's ingenius!
Staudie: Ok, Who should be next in the hot seat?
Staudie: If you can talk boneparte to sit in it, I would be very happy...
Mister Phes: I shall command him to!
Staudie: Yey! He seems to be avioding me...
Mister Phes: He might think you're annoying
Staudie: Ok, last question, Anything you'd like to say to the rest of eurobricks?
Mister Phes: Yes
Mister Phes: Pay me lots of money damn you!
Staudie: Ok... I suppose that concludes this episode of EB news Presents...
