Mark Fossen Interview

Our own Mark Fossen was interviewed at Bloggasm. Make sure you check it out!
Blogasm: "How did you come to be a part of so many different online writing projects?"
Mark: "Happy accidents, and an inability to say “no”. Though I have a background in theatrical criticism, I hadn’t really considered writing until after being on the technical staff at Operation Sports for some time. I eventually decided I’d like to give reviewing a try and built from there. Sports games is a pretty limited field, however, and I began to feel the need to flex my writing muscles a bit with more frequent and varied reviews. Like most things, the way to get better at writing is to do it, and do it frequently. I was just coming back to comic books after a long time away, and decided to open Focused Totality to work on daily writing about an artform that that can support the reflective writing that I hoped to do more of. When the Managing Editor of Operation Sports, Shawn Drotar, mentioned opening a new gaming site that could focus on more in-depth writing, I went along for the ride and helped launch 5WG."

Question of the Day

Are you a fan of the NBA?

I love it, although there wasn't much for me to cheer about last night as the Pistons lost. Way to go Sheed! Start the season off on a good note, why don't you!

QOTD:
I'm a big college basketball fan but I always watch and follow the NBA mostly to keep track of all the players I loved in college.

Example, I'm from Washington, therefore the Charlotte Bobcats are my favorite team

Sure, I guess I like NBA... not nearly as much as NFL, NCAA FB, NCAA BB, and MLB... but if nothing else is on I guess I'll watch. I have more tolerance for the Wizards though.

Steve, you're doing awesome with this stuff! I just wanted to throw you some props.

QOTD - I love the NBA, hate the horrid free throw shooting.
 
# 4 Pete1210 @ 11/02/06 10:03 AM
QOTD: Yes. That horrid foul shooting by Memphis saved the Knicks last night.

QOTD: I dont barely ever watch NBA at all but I keep up with the Standings, the Scores and I like to watch the Heat when there in HD just to watch Shaq and Wade. I love college basketball much more.

qotd: I really dont care for the NBA that much. However, I LOVE BB video games! That is, except the Live series

I haven't watched a whole BB game on tv since the late 80's.

Love the NFL!
