Staff Interview - spankit|
What's your nickname, and what is your real name?
Most people call me jaz which kinda gives away actual name, Jasmine.
How old are you?
Hehe yes please, erm, female
What school do you currently attend? Where is that?
Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada
Ninjas or Pirates?
Ninjas. I love pirates but they could do with some vitamin C.
Xbox 360, Playstation3 or Wii?
Now that I think of it, I haven't played the PS3 yet. I have a Wii but I do love the Xbox for some Rock Band.
Favourite kind of food and beverage?
Varies with my mood... but I love Caramel Macchiatos.
Do you remember your dreams? What are they about?
I remember them for a period of time, but then it just kinda fades. I have some of the weirdest dreams. I think last night's had to do with mythology... o___o
If you can describe your personality in 3 words, what would they be?
Stubborn, easy going, and approachable
Other than anime, what other hobbies interest you?
Reading, writing, baking! Oh, and crafts. I can even knit, bwahah- like the granny that I am.
Korean manhwa, Goong
What are some dreams/aspirations you have in life?
To travel a lot and to just go somewhere on a whim just because I can. But ultimately I guess just to live a steady life and be happy with whatever I achieve in the end.
What's one odd observance about yourself?
I get hurt easily, rather, I'm a real big klutz. Just this morning while opening my books I sliced my shin with my scissors and right now it's band-aid-ed. I'm one of those people that get hurt without knowing how.
How did you find Anime-Source?
What is the origin of your net alias, spankit?
I don't get it, how come people think I'm a guy! What kinda kinky bastard guy would want to have it spanked? Wait. I don't want to know... the name just came out of randomness as with my other names: captainmojo and emptyorange.
How were you recruited as a staff member for A-S?
When you visit Anime-Source, what do you typically do?
I browse the forums, harass guys, and then rinse and repeat.
And what are your duties for A-S?
Harassing Kaiser and uhh... occasionally "writing". Oh! and telling xenocrisis0153 that he's a pedo.
What are some of your favourite anime titles?
Nodame Cantabile, it was adorable! Oh and Bible Black o__o that scared me so bad. I'm just kidding about the Bible Black <__<;;
How about your favourite manga titles?
Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend), call me a sap but I cried. I CRIED! I like Goong too, but that's a Korean manhwa.
What movies are you looking forward to this coming year?
Umm... I'm not a huge movie buff so I don't keep track of trailers and such but uhh... first one that comes to mind is Twilight but then again I don't really like movie adaptations of novels.
Do you watch Japanese or K-dramas? Your favourites?
Oh dear lord. I'm a cultures writer, so of course! Goong, Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango (only season 1 though), Nodame Cantabile, Hwangjini; I swear there's more... do movies count? Shinobi, 100 Days with Mr. Arrogant, He Was Cool, yadda yadda....
Nodame Cantabile Live-Action
Hana Kimi Live-Action
Have you met any Anime-Source members?
Oh yeah. Listing in order: Xristyan, killerargh, ani_master, Gig, Himitsu. Crap did I forget someone? I'm meeting 1ce though I believe.
What is the funniest thing you've come across while being an A-S staff member?
Other than Japan, which country would you want to vacation in?
Japan was fun but lonely and caused me to have rashes since it's so damn dry! I'd love to go to the caribbeans again. I've been to lots of places but I hardly remember them. My mom takes me traveling a lot ^^ except for Europe, damn Europe.
I actually wrote about my trip to Japan, they're divided in two parts:
When I visited Tokyo and
My visit to Kyoto
Before we finish this, is the glass half-full or half-empty?
Empty. Well depends. If I was drinking from it, it's half-full, if I just see a glass, it's half-empty.
Do you have any final messages, comments, etc?
Camwhoring was one of the less glamorous mistakes of my life.
