Q:Steve, it has been awhile. What have you been up to?
A: Well, I just finished school so lately I've just been hanging out with
friends and enjoying my time off from school. I also got a job, which I do
not recommend for anyone that doesn't actually need one. The extra money
is not worth it, kids! Work sucks!
Q: Do you have any plans in the future to be opening up a site?
A: Nope, I might help one of my net-buddies out from time to time (I
thought I was gonna work with Skitz there for a while but I have no idea
what happened to all that.) but I'll probably just stick to observing for a
Q: You were to the man who thought of the idea for interviews. You created
the monster. Now I like to think that I was one of the original ones who
did interviews and I also like to think that as of right now I do them best
(I will try to think of a few more good things to say about myself
throughout the interview). Currently though people do not care who they
interview, what the questions are, or what the answers are. It is an
interview and it draws attention. It is almost like that same attack list
you see on every page pirates site. What do you have to say about what I
A: I haven't seen much of that, I mean, even most bad interviews are just
the result of a lack of ability (it isn't as easy as it looks, trust me),
not lack of effort. People like you that put a lot into it really make me
feel good about my contribution, and as far as I've seen, most people
interviewing seem to try hard enough. I will definatly say that your the
best however, and if I ever do come back I'll have some serious
Q: Now this interview is definitely different because when you had a site I
could at least make up some questions from that. This one does have to do
with your site though. Now, why exactly did you close down the site?
A: To be completely honest, I just got bored with it. At first man, I cared so much about the site; I'd spend hours just trying to get it perfect and I'd put my heart and soul into every question I asked and every bit of HTML I wrote. But slowly, my interest just sort of faded...and I knew that if I ever came to dislike working on the site and such, that I would have defeated the entire purpose of making it in the first place. When I pulled the plug, I still had the love...and truthfully, it never disappeared. I still cherish my memories of the Vault, and always will. I suppose thats why I really killed it; I didn't want to face the possibility that I would wake up one day and not want to face it. I know that all sounds weird, but it's the best I can explain it.
Q: Would you say it was a lot harder because your site was of great success
instead of closing down if it was not popular?
A: Well, I wouldn't say my site was a great success...I achieved some sort of cult standing I guess, but I was far from great. Had the site been some sort of dismal failure, I imagine that closing it down would have been much less difficult.
Q: Sites just keep closing and closing and closing. Recently Akire's DBD
and I know of a few others that are closing real soon. What do you think
about all these sites closing down?
A: It sucks, but then again, there are always potentially great sites
starting up and currently good sites really kicking it into high gear. The
stars of today fade and make way for the movers and shakers of tomorrow, or
something like that.
Q: What did you think about the DB promotion at Burger King? Did you get
any of the figures?
A: No, I'm not much for action figures anymore. Plus I'm more of a Jack In
The Box guy, you know. I think it was great for DBZ in America though. It
shows that DBZ has made real progress state-side.
Q: At the time of this interview Anime Expo is tomorrow. Now since I have
not talked to you I will ask this. Did you go to Anime Expo?
A: Nope. Would have liked to, but some of the people at those things are
just too...enthusiastic for my tastes. I would have like to meet some of
the VAs though. I imagine that Monika would be kinda pissed at me for the
way I dicked her around with our interview, so it would have been real fun
to meet her. But alas I will not be attending.
Q: Do you have plans to go next year?
A: Once again, I seriously doubt it.
Q: Do you think anyone will blow up or attack the FUNi section?
A: There's always a possibility of that, but as long as they run the metal
detectors over Psaros before they let him in I'm sure everything will be
okay. (Heh heh Chris, I'm just joking..I know you'd never do anything like
Q: What do you think about the new anime's, Tenchi Myuo and Blue Submarine
No. 6 , coming to Cartoon Network. Have you seen either of them?
A: I've seen one of Tenchi OVAs, and while I'm not much of a fan, I gotta
say that I'm glad it's coming to CN. I'll probably catch some more of it
there, so maybe my opinion will change. I've never even heard of Blue
Submarine, so I'm not too sure about that one. But MrE says it's good, so
Q: What did you think of the dubbed Gundam Wing?
A: From what I've seen, it's very good. But I've never seen any of the
original, so my opinion is a little underinformed.
Q: What ever happened to the audio of the Gen Fukunaga interview?
A: Oh God...it's haunting me from the grave!!! Just kidding...well as
everbody knows I had long planned to post an audio version of my interview
with Gen, but A)I could never find a working mic, B) our conversation was
50-60 minutes long and would have been one monster of a .wav, and C)I
wasn't extatic about having my voice a click away from anyone who wanted to
hear it...I know that's kind of odd, but it's just one of my many quirks.
Anyway, I never even got to put up clips of the interview and now as far as
I know the tape is gone.
Q: You know, if you ever need somewhere to post it I heard Pojo's
dragonball is a pretty good site. :)
A: You guys would be my second choice...Ramza gets firsties with anything I
do now :)
Q: What's your favorite DB web site on the net right now?
A: Ooh, good good question! I'm still a big fan of all my old faves
(Planet Namek which just gets better and better, DBZ Uncensored, Ginga GIRI
GIRI, EX's new site, ToT, etc.) but as far as new sites go, my favorite of
what I have seen is "Kienzan's Edge".
Q: Last question (I needed to have more than my last interview), what do
you think of the new db card game or have you not checked it out, yet?
A: Haven't seen it, don't plan too. I don't spend my money on anything but
hoes, cars, and frosty beverages :) Seriously though, it looks pretty cool.
A nice alternative to Pokemon, I suppose.
Andy: Well, steve, out of the 18 (I think) interviews I have done
there are four that I enjoyed the most. VegettoEX, Meri of ToT, Castor
Troy, and You. I have to say that I enjoyed this one just as much and I
thank you for bringing me two memorable interviews.
Steve Harmon- I've certainly had a fun time both of them. Thanks for sending me the questions, and be sure to tell me when it's going to be posted. Also, for those of you reading this, all grammatical errors are purely Andy's fault ;)
