Meet the MacPierce Captains: ADAM B
Adam “Adam A” Brozynski is a man who wears many hats. He has been a MacPierce captain for two years running, is a lover of fine animated cartoons, and also enjoys wearing hats.
But enough of that, let’s jump right into the interview —
What’s your first Scav-related memory?
Reading the lists in high school before I even applied to UofC.
Favorite item from last year?
This is like asking a parent who their favorite child is. Top 5 in no particular order:
Hey!! Bernie!!!! How’s it going, man?!?!
Pyramids on the quad: hipster gods approved
The Scav Sherrif Cycle. The few people who actually watched the debate will know that it got pretty weird pretty fast.
The kraken floor lamp. Must…smash…matzah ship!
What’s your favorite classic arcade game?
Space Invaders. They’re craftier than they seem. Sure, it seems like they just drop down, increase speed, and reverse direction, but that could be part of their 30 year master plan to lull us into a false sense of security and then return with an array of tactics so mind boggling that Alexander the Great, Robert E. Lee, and every kid who spent his childhood on Command & Conquer: Yuri’s Revenge would be reduced to a quivering mass of tears. You just don’t know, man. Watch the skies.
Inky, Blinky, Pinky or Clyde?
There is only one correct answer here: Blinky. Seriously. Red guy. First off, he’s the only one that’s a primary color. Pink? Orange? A shade of blue that Wikipedia is telling me is Cyan? What the fuck is that shit? Pac-Man is yellow. You gotta fight primary colors with primary colors. Second of all, start up a game of Pac-Man. Where are the ghosts? That’s right. Inky, Pinky, and Clyde are locked up in their little ghostbox detention cell thingy. Where’s Blinky, though? Dude is already outside. He is having none of that. That’s initiative right there. Hell, he’s probably the one that lets the others out of their cage. Or maybe they didn’t want to be let out. Maybe they’re all cowering in there because it’s the one place Pac-Man can’t go. They were just cowering in fear. I bet that the startup music is there to drown out the inspirational speech Blinky gave to the others. I’m picturing something halfway between the St. Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V and the Abraham Lincoln’s first inaugural address. But the game designers had to drown it out to prevent players from voluntarily surrendering to the ghosts, after being so moved by Blinky’s passion and eloquence. Look at those eyes, man. He came to that labyrinth to kick ass and take names. Nobody fucks with Blinky. Nobody.
Meet the MacPierce Captains: ALLISON
Welcome to our first installment of Meet the captains — up today, Allison “Adam C” McCaffrey. I joined Allison for an interview in a cavernous underground bunker where she was preparing dozens of baked pies. She informed me they were a special reward for the brave MacPierce scavvies who have donated blood to the Scav Hunt Blood Drive this week. Mmm.
Here’s what she had to say —
Tell us about yourself: If you please me, I will bake you things and sing you songs.
What’s your first Scav-related memory? List release of my first year: a sea of red, extolling the beauty that is John Boyer.
Favorite item from last year? 86. Speaking of the apocalypse, I want to be able to enjoy haute cuisine in my fallout shelter. Donnez-moi homemade, powdered versions of each of Carême’s mother sauces. [18 points]
What’s your favorite classic arcade game? Tetrisssss
Inky, Blinky, Pinky or Clyde? Pinky
