Neil "Trapezoid" Cicierega, author of numerous Monkey Island fan songs, and more recently the deliciously insane animutations has been interviewed by online magazine Salon.com. The interview covers some of Trapezoids history with animutations and tackles some larger social issues, for instance:

What did you eat for breakfast this morning?
I skipped breakfast this morning. If I did have breakfast it would've been some Lucky Charms.

    You broke the html, met! :) I'm going to have to shorten that ARGH, sorry. hehe.

    whoops. I guess I found the Achilles' tendon of the seemingly-seemless Mojo supersite. Now no one type a really long word like pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosisantidisestablishmentarianism, or there will be trouble. Sorry about the trouble.

    Kingz, have you ever considered seeking professional help?
  • Kingzjester on 27 Apr, 2001, 14:23…
    No... I'm perfectly sane. It is everyone else who needs professional help! :}

    I'm jealous. I seriously hate that guy now. There, I didn't want to say it, but you made me... Are you happy? Ha, baby? Are you happy NOW? Now go get me that lemonade...

    No, seriously, I like the stuff he makes, but it is so pathetic when you watch people around you who give 1/4 of a unit of effort (and he admits it), get recognized, while people who slave away in a creative process that takes months and tons of calories DON'T!!! Goddamn Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus! You *bleep* *bleep* *bleep* Mother *bleep*ing *bleep* *bleep* existentialists! You are destroying me!!! Kingdom for recognition!

    For those that didn't just fly over what I have just written, thank you. And all those that understand what I'm talking about, pat yourselves on the back and carry on with your existence. As for you, you four-sided geometric body with the area of [(a+b)/2]h, I wish you Godspeed and a fractured scull ('tis saahchasm of course)... Poor Borges... I know how he felt--albeit, our problems were different.

    I may put 1/4 the effort, but it's god damn fun and people like it. Seriously, I am working on a relatively quality animutation (well, compared to the previous ones.) Also, YOU try answering 50 emails a day. It gets annoying!

    I assume Trapezoid saw "Eegah!" recently...
  • Trapezoid on 27 Apr, 2001, 01:13…
    Not recently, but "Watch out for snakes" is an official In-Joke, and in-jokes are what Animutations are all about.
  • Jake on 27 Apr, 2001, 10:02…
    True true.

    Cool. So, you're an internet celebrity now, eh, Zoid?
  • Trapezoid on 27 Apr, 2001, 01:12…
    I suppose. It's a balancing act, though. My traffic seems to be bouncing.

    Animutations r00lz.
