Knowing that a man as busy as Aldie would never have the time to conduct a real interview with me, I just looked at his profile and composed interview questions based on his microbadges. Since all good questions need answers, I also took the liberty of answering for Aldie as well. Enjoy.

RR: First of all, I would just like to say thanks for running such a wonderful site and..... Oh forget it! Enough with the butt kissing. The first order of business is how you acquired over 14,000 GG. Do you claim to have collected all this gold through the standard methods open to all other users?

A: No. This is my website, so I'll do whatever I want. What's the big deal? It's not like it's real money.

RR: You know good and well that hundreds of users on this site struggle just get enough money for an avatar and there you sit like a dictator with all your GG. It's disgusting.

A: You seem to be blowing this all out of proportion. Do you need some GG or something? I could give you a little.

RR: Don't patronize me. Since you obviously can't understand the plight of the little man, let's move on.

RR: The next order of business is your abudance of microbadges. Did you buy those with all your GG or just take them without paying? No, don't answer; it would only make me angry. In your favor, I did notice that we share some similar music tastes, especially They Might Be Giants and The Pixies. However, you do tend to like a lot more of that electronic artsy crap. How do you explain this?

A: I'm really a robot. Haven't you seen my avatar?

RR: Is that supposed to be some kind of joke. I mean you have two of the most pretentious bands of all time on there, U2 and Radiohead. I just never did get either one of those bands.

A: Well music is a very personal area that you can't really define for others.

RR: What a bunch of horse crap. You know good and well that only bands that I like could possibly be good. My opinion is the only one that matters.

A: I beginning to think that you are a rather irrational person, Rowdy Ray. Are we almost finished?

RR: Not even close.

RR: Under your Literature and Arts microbadges you only had several that said Ukiyoe. You're not exactly a cultural juggernaut are you?

A: I don't sit around and read Jane Austen, but I know what I like.

RR: Do you think you are even qualified to run this website?

A; I should hope so since I have been doing it for almost ten years and have made it quite a success.

RR: This sound like more empty rhetoric to me.

A: What does reading classic literature have to do with running a website?

RR: You are an empty shell of a man, Aldie.

RR: I almost hate to bring up the fact that you are a Dallas Cowboys fan. I am a Raiders fan so naturally I hate the Cowboys.

A: Dallas and Oakland aren't even rivals.

RR: Shut up! Maybe one day the Cowboys will win as many Super Bowls as the Raiders.

A: They already have. Do you even watch football, Rowdy?

RR: You're this close to getting your jaws smacked, Mr. Alden. Why on earth would you root for the Cowboys?

A: Well, I live in Texas and they are America's team.

RR: Well, I live in America and I don't like them, so how do you explain that?

A: You are truly an idiot, Rowdy.

RR: Your pop culture badges look pretty good. I like Lost and Dr. Horrible. How about we sing a few lines of from one of Dr. Horrible's songs?

A: I'd rather not.

RR: Oh come on. "A Man's gotta do what a man's gotta do."

A: Please can we just finish the interview?

RR: I noticed you also watch American Idol. How pathetic. I wouldn't be caught dead watching that garbage.

A: Whatever. I got to meet Adam Lambert last year.

RR: Oh my god! Did you get your picture taken with him? He so should have won last year!

A: (Under his breath) This is my last interview.

RR: Last but not least, I would like to know about some of your game related microbadges. I get that you like certain games, but do you really need ten Tichu microbadges?

A: Maybe I just really like Tichu.

RR: Well, what about Qwirkle? You must really like that too.

A: Yeah, as a matter of fact I do.

RR: Do you think it's really necessary for you to have a microbadge that declares you a certified Board Game Geek? I mean after all, you started the damn site.

A: Is it necessary? No. Is it something I wanted? Yes. You seem to fail to grasp the concept of this being my web site. I can do whatever I please.

RR: Is that a threat?

A: This interview is over. Where the hell is Derk? He's taking care of this junk from now on.
