This month I will be interviewing Kaamea who has returned to the team

and our CM, Chief of Head Waxing, Alora Safety Administrator, Lowkey!

 

 

Hello, Kaamea

 

 

Dante: How does it feel being the Head-Veteran of Alora? What do your duties entail?

 

 

Kaamea: It honestly feels great to have such a great title which has such a big purpose, because self-promote is a beautiful thing.

 

 

Dante: Since you have come back to the staff-team and have other duties, is there someone else who is going to be considered the 'Head-Veteran'?

 
 
Kaamea: I will be passing the status to fellow countryman Inferno...
 
 

Dante: What was the most enjoyable part during your hiatus in terms of being staff?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably when I was promoted to Global Moderator made so many things easier and was able to vote on so many things as well.
 
 

Dante: If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a medal for?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably Counter Strike Source, because I love e-sports and that is game that I did grind a lot when I was a kid.
 
 

Dante: When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?

 
 
Kaamea: Usually ask to lend money, because I am known as someone who likes to save their money.
 
 

Dante: If you suddenly became a master at woodworking, what would you make?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably a boat, so I would be able to go fishing.
 
 

Dante: What age do you wish you could permanently be? Why?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably 25 old enough to drink and able to make own decision.
 
 

Dante: If you had unlimited funds to build a house that you would live in for the rest of your life, what would the finished house be like?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably something similar to this.
Spoiler
 
 

Dante: What’s something you’ve been meaning to try but just haven’t gotten around to it?

 

 

Kaamea: Start investing in stocks.
 

 

Dante: What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably what the hell has been happening can't imagine being frozen for 100 years.
 

 

____________________________________

 

 

 

Hello, Lowkey!

 

 

 

Dante: If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

 

 

Lowkey: I would be going to the next Safety meeting with our Safety meeting coordinator Horror.

 

 

Dante: How was your trip meeting hsoJ?

 

 

Lowkey: I enjoyed my time there, met a ton of awesome people and took a big pooper on josh's toilet.

 

 

Dante: If you could be partnered with any sauce company to get free sauce for life, what sauce would you get?

 

 

Lowkey: Hidden Valley RANCH. I put that on hecking everything. My personal favourite is Frosted flakes cereal with a spoon full of Ranch right on top.

 

 

Dante: What is your perfect pizza and what needs to be on it?

 

 

Lowkey: Every type of meat (including yours, Dante) Also dipped in some ranch.

 

 

Dante: When Alora HQ becomes full built, who will be your two roommates in the apartment?

 

 

LowkeyKing purple so we have taco's and burritos on deck at all times of the hour and hsoJ so I can wake up every morning just to annoy him.

 

 

Dante: How many bags of flaming hot Cheetos do you think you could eat without water?

 

 

Lowkey: At least 4 bags, I personally enjoy sucking on every single Cheeto to get all of the hot seasonings off while drinking a gallon of Hidden Valley Ranch.

 

 

Dante: What is the ultimate Halloween Costume?

 

 

Lowkey: A bald monk with a hard hat, safety vest, and steel toe boots for Safety meetings.

 

 

Dante: What was your first job and did you like it?

 

 

Lowkey: My first job was working at Home Depot when I was 18. I worked as a stocker overnight and hated it.

 

 

Dante: What role in a movie do you think you would perfectly play?

 

 

Lowkey: I would want to play as a bald superhero. As I slaughter the bad guys with my shining head (which blinds them). I would then force them all to shave their heads bald and finally pull out my secret weapon (Rogaine). After they lather that onto their big heads, we watch the magic happen.

 

 

Dante: If you had $67 right now what would be your first order of business?

 

 

Lowkey: 3 Large pizzas, a $10 bond on Alora and a Donald Trump hat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disclaimer:

Have any interview questions you would like to ask any of the staff members?

Don't hesitate to send me or Dante a private message via forums/discord and I'll include them in next edition along with the answers from that staff member!

Have been waiting for this. Good read, was enjoyable to read the interviews with Kaamea and Lowkey (well spent with the $67, Lowkey). Would dote to see interviews being made with community members and not just members of staff though. Good work, Dante

Great read thanks for this Dante! Hopefully we can help Lowkey with his ranch addiction before it gets too extreme

It was nice to see Kaamea get interviewed, but let’s stop Lowkey’s ranch addiction before it’s too late. When that gets added into cereal, that’s when he crossed the line.

Nice newspaper as always Dante!
