Nice interview, my personal favorite so far. Shuey you're awesome! I hope I'm still as passionate about Tetris as you are 10 years from now.

Yay for representing:

Hehe, yeah, for now it is, but you KNOW I want to bring that back to the present. Those were good times and I especially miss them a lot after watching you and the boys dominate it in recent months! Smile.png

Loved your impressive set of achievements, although seeing the list is nothing like watching a few of those awesome videos!

QUOTE
Shuey today, during the Pattern Building years, and Shuey 2.0!:


But you said your dad was also nicknamed Shuey... therefore your son (cute kid btw Smile.png) is Shuey 3.0!

QUOTE
1. Break the 50 second barrier in sprint/40L


I think you've already got the speed to do this Wink.png

QUOTE
9. Reach 10 million total video views on my YouTube channel (I'd actually love to reach a billion views, but I'm shooting for a more realistic goal for now ).


I think 1 million of those will be just from me Sticking Out Tongue.png

Shout outs
First and foremost: God - Without Him, none of what I do would be possible.


This I did not know - cool

DAS and Estrelleta for teaching me two methods for doing S/Z spins. Knowing how to effectively do these spins has helped my pattern building even more!


Thank you for the shoutout! Heart.png

Thanks Steph Smile.png

Estrelleta: Thanks for the kind words and props Smile.png. As for the "Shuey 2.0 vs Shuey 3.0", yes, you're technically right. I consider my dad the beta version of Shuey, then I became the first official release with Shuey, and my son is now Shuey 2.0 Grin.png.

Shuey what else do you do in your spare time besides building patterns?

My spare time varies because I have so little of it, so I always have to sacrifice one thing for another. Aside from absolutely loving to hang out with my wife and son, other things I love to obsess about are:

Computers and computer technology (particularly software and networking)
Music (especially electronica and reggae, but I love a lot of other genres)
Art (particularly desktop wallpapers or insanely awesome screensavers like ElectricSheep)
Puzzles (any type of puzzle/logic challenges, especially Rubik's type puzzles)
Video Games (pretty much anything except for fighting games and strategy games, but I of course especially love puzzle type games)
Math (anything to do with numbers - they're amazing)
Watching good TV shows and movies (too many good ones to name, old and new)
Eating my favorite foods (particularly all kinds of sushi)
Drinking my favorite drinks (particularly iced espresso)
Soaking in a beautiful day (nature - beautiful weather in a beautiful, peaceful place)
Exercising (Swimming, riding bikes, and DDR)
Learning new things (anything that's interesting and/or helpful)
Travelling (if I had unlimited resources, I'd travel the world year round)
Hanging out with good friends

Those are the things that come to mind, and I'm sure I could name a few more if I sat here long enough thinking about it Grin.png.

And when I have the time to enjoy any of these things, when I say I can obsess, I mean it like a beast. My motto is pretty much "if you like something, go ballistic". I don't know how to NOT go ballistic with anything that interests me beyond the surface. You know I could elaborate in detail about every one of those bullet points above, but here is one example I will leave you with: When I first discovered iced espresso and how delicious it was, I went off the deep end. Before I cut WAY back on how much of it I consume, I was drinking 6 shots every morning, 1 at lunch, and another 4-6 shots after work. Of course I have to be careful with certain things that I like, due to health reasons, because if I don't control that Shuey side of me, I can get myself in trouble Grin.png.

Like many setups here, it is useful if your opponent doesn't move and you get 4 Ts in a row.

Scores?


Sadly, I have nothing major to report since I haven't played in months. And I quit long before America was overtaken by an insane amount of skilled players. The only things I can say I am proud of from this arena are:

1. I was the only person in town who knew about the game before it was released on a console.
2. I loved playing it so much that I used to drive over an hour one way, at least once to twice per week, to play it after I got off work (I was an ironworker at the time, working in brutal conditions). I'd play for at least 6 hours straight. I had a friend who worked at Gameworks so the only cost for me was gas for my car and something to eat/drink while I was there.
3. I created the first DDR "team" in the greater Rockford area (Illinois).
4. I used to print out official step patterns for songs that I really liked, and I'd color them according to how I wanted to step 'em, particularly, making them more interesting to watch at the arcade. I took lame patterns like "Have You Never Been Mellow" and made them look cool, or took Afronova maniac steps and created a dance pattern where at least 50% of the time I wasn't even facing or looking at the screen.
5. Full combo'd AM-3P maniac, Afronova maniac, and Dead End maniac. There were plenty of other songs I FC'd, but people reading this would think "big deal!" Grin.png
6. I discovered that "random" actually meant "8 unique patterns", and I memorized all 8 of the Afronova basic steps and played on stealth shuffle and would complete the song with an "A". This really tripped people out at the time.
7. Almost FC'd Boom Boom Dollar KOG G3 maniac double.

As I said, most or all of these "achievements" could seem lame to others by today's standards. But when I put in context the fact that I did these things back before most people in Rockford even knew about this stuff, it was pretty kick a** back then Smile.png
