Myself, in memoriam

I worked with Gamereactor’s web-TV, GRTV, for about four years. When I think back on the time I spent with the magazine/websites, GRTV is the part I miss the most – we had tons of fun, either in the studio or out on the road. Yesterday, as an episode of the traditional Christmas calendar, the guys put together this tribute/in memoriam-episode for me. I am not sure what to say about it, except that I’m very touched. I try not to get too nostalgic about the whole thing, but it was hard not to start missing the boys and girls I left behind when I left the company after seeing it.

They truly did dig through the archives for material – there’s even a brief clip of the first interview I did on camera (with Jeff Kaplan from Blizzard). I wasn’t prepared at all, I had just shown up to do a written interview when Bengt told me to grab the mic. “You know more about World of Warcraft than me.” Then it all went downhill from there… But wow, so many cool places we traveled to and so many cool people I got to interview. Some of them show up in the clip above; including (but not limited to) Ken Levine, Peter Molyneux, Daniel Erickson and Mel B (!).

Ok, I’m officially nostalgic now.

I miss doing stuff in front of the camera, I admit. I do have a project in the works, but not sure when we’ll have the time to get it off the ground. Hopefully early next year.

Also, to the GRTV guys – thanks. I adore you all. I especially adore Dori’s beard. Never, ever shave.
