|Behind the Name
As everyone is by now well aware, each week we at the Buzz bring to you an interview with random players of Bootleggers. How random? Well, we go to the Users Online, close our eyes and we have a few clicks! Awesome, we know. So, without any further adieu, here are the interviews of this week! Enjoy!
Let’s start off with the obvious, how’d you get your name?
I was about 6 years old and just learning about swear words when I thought of the name Fuckle.
How long have you been playing, and what keeps you here today?
First played in late 2004, been on and off since. The people, mostly. Ranking and shooting and all is fun but would be long gone if I didn't have so many friends on here
So tell the Bootleggers community about your life! What do you do, how old are you, where do you live, and what do you want to do for the rest of your life?
I'm 24, an electrician in Northern Canada, and I guess be an electrician in southern Canada. Or maybe go travel the world and be a drifter and do weird electrical side jobs in Nigerian huts and shit like that for money when I'm in the mood. That sounds like a fun life as well
So imagine you see Anna Kendrick walk by. You have one chance to say something to me to sweep me off my feet, what would that be?
I'd probably just sing that song Cups for her. The range of emotions she had during the song would start at 'this is awful, please make it stop' to 'i can't believe it's still happening' and progressing until eventually she realizes the only way to make me stop singing it would be to sleep with me.
Then after the bang I'd start singing again, and eventually we'd be married with children.
I'm sure that'd get her to immediately fall in love with you!
Did you ever hear of her tweet, "Ugh - NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered 'inappropriate'"?
What's the most interesting thing either you've ever done, or has happened to you?
Well maybe not, the love will come years later. I figure she probably gets a lot of bad pickup lines so you gotta just force your way in there and then make your mark.
I once drank 27 beers in a day and didn't puke or have a hangover.
Who do you think will win the World Cup?
Argentina. Messi is beasting his balls off
Anything else you can think of we should say or I should ask or you'd like to say? Any shoutouts?
This has been at least 10x longer than I anticipated so I can't possibly think of anything to add. One quick shoutout though, to Caboose, for all that hard work behind the scenes and all that he does that the BL public will never see.
Yeah man me too, I love drinking coffee at night, as much as I shouldn't. Yes I am a Pisces! How did you know? Though I'm not sure whether or not I still am, since astrologists of some sort not too long ago decided that they need to be shifted forwards a couple of weeks, which I'm not sure but i think would make me Aries. But i'd need to Google it.
**tumbleweed rolls by, a crying baby is heard in the distance**
So tell the world, who are you? What do you do? Where do you live? What do you want to do for the rest of your life?
Are you trying to force me into having an existential crisis?
Only if you'd like to have one?
I only do existential crises on Mondays, sorry.
So imagine I'm Jennifer Lawrence and you get one chance to sweep me off my feet. What do you say or do?
She's 'real' so I'd take you out to a really nice, tucked away gem of a coffee place or something, get to know you a little bit, listen to what you have to say about your social anxiety problems (and hope you don't ask me why I know that) and then be all like 'Oh hey I have this Japanese peace lily in my house I'm sure you'd love to see" then I'd bring you home, make you some really nice Kenyan tea and serenade you by candle light.
ORRRR McDonalds and a quickie behind the dumpsters.
So who do you think will win the world cup?
I believe that Netherlands can and should win, but realistically Ze Germans
I just have to say, I really love that kitty on your profile!! Anything else you can think of that you'd like to say? Any shoutouts?
Shout outs to my ex-TD homies on the struggle. But most of all... Frank. We will find you.
So why'd you decide to go by JMurph, your name, I'm assuming?
Yeah, exactly, my first name is Josh and growing up my mom and step dad had custody of me so i adopted my mothers last name of Murphy, and because everywhere I went, school, church, etc, there were so many josh's, so one day a friend of mine started calling me J. Murph to make it easier for everyone to get my attention. I know longer claim the last name Murphy but I've worked in the music industry (hip hop) for almost ten years and the moniker stuck.
What do you do in the music industry?
I handle online marketing and public relations for a handful of artists. Sometimes I relocate to work with the artists in person and sometimes I do it strictly online. I wrapped up a 6 month internship late last year in Atlanta Georgia with an artist named R-Swift and his label Rhyme Council Music Group, and I just became the marketing director for Full Ride Music Group and their artist Thi'sl (thizl) based in St. Louis Missouri.
That sounds pretty incredible! Is that what pays the bills, or what you'd like to do for the rest of your life?
Do you usually always like the music of those you represent?
It really doesn't pay the bills. It's more so a hobby to escape from the daily grind of my real 9-5 in the restaurant business. I tend to work for independent artists just because I love what they do and I want to help get their music into the hands of other people, so to answer your question, I only extend my experience to artists who I enjoy, and honestly, I don't ask for a paycheck. If they see fit to reimburse me, I welcome it, but it isn't a requirement. I'm simply trying to build a solid resume because one day my dream would be to own and operate my own record label where I can sign and push talent that I really appreciate.
So how long have you played BL, how'd you start, and why have you stuck around, what do you like most about this game?
I started playing in late 2006/early 2007 and I can't honestly tell you how I started but I've been addicted ever since. I've primarily stuck around because of the community here. I'm a big people person so I love interacting with new people on a daily basis, and I've developed some strong friendships with people from all over the world, a couple of people I've been talking to since I started. Shout out to Toscy I also love the simplicity of the game itself, a lot of video games are so complicated these days and I feel like that can take the fun out of a lot of games. Not to mention the fact that I have an incredible BL gambling addiction so the casino brings me back on a daily basis
Imagine you see Kate Upton pick her nose, but you still only get one that one small chance to get in her pants, what would you say?
What's the most interesting thing ever to happen in your life?
I'd be like "hey girl, your beauty makes the morning sun look like the dull glimmer of the moon". Bitches love that stuff
The most interesting thing to ever happen to me? Thats a tough one. I can narrow it down to 3. Back in 2010 I had 3 artists whom I really respect fly me to New York for 4 days so I could participate in putting together a music video shoot and help with on set photography. Then in 2011 and 2012 I had the honor of hosting 2 benefit concerts for the troops at Ft. Bennig military base in Georgia. And then last year I moved to Atlanta for 6 months to work with an artist I've listened to since I was a teenager, I got to meet a handful of people I've looked up to for years, and I also got to meet Andrew Lincoln who plays Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead.
Who do you think will win the World Cup?
