Interview with martypunker.
1. How did you come up with your deviantART nickname?
On Five Iron Frenzy's B-side album, they had a song called "Marty". The opening lines were, "Marty was a punk rocker, he went to all the shows/with patches on Swiss Army pants and two rings in his nose." Being a FIF fan and liking the words to that song, I made a Yahoo! name, martythepunkrocker. This, however, is rather long, and some sites wouldn't take it as a username, so I shortened it to martypunker. Voila! (For the record, my real name is Chris, thanks.)
2. What is your role on deviantART and what do you enjoy most about it?
I mostly focus on moderating the forums, though I do occasionally help in the chatrooms (which generally ends in failure). My favourite part of this is locking threads, honestly, not because of a "power trip" or anything, I just like to think that
A Blurb About Me |
I joined dA back in January of 2005 and I was instantly addicted. Amazed that I found a place where I could share my hobby while I tried to improve on it. Still working on that part, by the way!
I was shocked when I received senior status at the tail end of July/early August 2006. (I was in shock for so long I don't remember the exact date.) Even more shocked in September of 2008 when they decided to actually let me help out with the forums I've become hopelessly addicted to. 4 years later I'm back to being a senior and trying to get back into being a more active again.
