BrentGamer sat down with Chevelle65 the other day to ask about moderating the forums, running Halo News, and whether he really drives a Chevelle. Read on for the whole interview…
Brent: How did you learn about Podtacular?
Chevelle: I was sick of joining clans online just to have them inactive and not even do anything. Well, after doing a couple of searches on the net I found podtacular and started listen to the podcasts. I quickly fell in love with podtacular and have been working my way up ever since joining Rec A a long while ago.
Brent: What are your duties as Mod?
Chevelle: First and foremost I belive it is to keep the peace (i.e. flame wars and such). Second, I’m helpful to the members if they have any questions. Third, I keep the the topics in line with deleting double posts and putting threads in the right place.
Brent: How did you come up with the idea for Halo News?
Chevelle: Halo News was a collective idea of Dazzolas, Jordanjr, A Oompa Loompah and myself. We worked together on the first one and a little on the second but after that I took over making, writing, filming and editing the episodes. That was the big switch in Halo News which led to the title being changed to “The Podtacular Community Presents”. That change really opened up options in HN and gave others a chance to be a part of it.
It will be great to have Dazzolas online once again, he has had some problems with his internet and Xbox but I am very much looking forward to having him back on the team. Even though he is not on Live he calls my house to discuss the news and help out in any way he can. He is one of the only original cast members to stick by me to offer any kind of help I may have needed.
Brent: Where is Halo News going in the future?
Chevelle: Look for more off the wall wacky stuff. I’m between homes right now but one of my goals with HN is to come up with some very well thought out, acted, and edited episodes. Episodes you can watch all the way though and still laugh at.
Brent: Can anybody send in ideas for Halo News?
Chevelle: Yes and it is encouraged!!! I’ve already used one idea from a member (thanks painkilla) and look forward to using more.
Brent: What is your favorite Halo 2 moment?
Chevelle: Being able to beat the guy that introduced me to Halo 2. The first time I ever played halo2 was on live at my buddies house. Well he pretty muched destroyed me and I never heard the end of it. So I went out and bought an Xbox, Halo 2, and Live. A month later I went back to his house to play him agian. He never played me again after I got done with him.
Brent: Final Question: Jessica Alba or Eva Longoria?
Chevelle: I didn’t even have to think about it. JESSICA ALBA!
Thanks Brent for putting together another excellent interview. Thanks to Chevelle for all he does at Podtacular! We never found out if you drive that chevelle… -Foo Mo
