Meet Will: Our new half-Swedish half-Metal man Developer
Hailing from beautiful Birmingham, he loves folk metal and drum and bass. A big fan of cats and a penchant for Italian cheese and wine, I decided to give him a rapid fire interview so all our lovely customers could get to know him better:
Favourite cheese? ”I like that stuff that’s got Cranberry in it. What is it? Are you typing exactly what I just said?..Okay..Wensleydale that’s the one.”
Favourite meat? “Rare steak. It’s meat. It’s awesome”
Best packet of crisps a human can buy?: *Rubs face looking anxious and confused* “I have no idea. I like those posh looking ones. Not sensations – They’re not posh. Kettle chips! That’s the one. Kettle chips are the best. Sea salt and Vinegar ones. They’re amazing”
Favourite Yearbook Machine feature?: “The coffee machine. No just joking. Sort of. The polls are wicked. I wish we had an online polling system for our school yearbook. Our yearbook committee clearly rigged the voting. Appalling behaviour”
20 minute fried chicken break courtesy of Mother Clucker. I’m feeling chickened out and content, but Will wants me to continue, so we go in for round 2.
Best city in the world? “well if you ask me, a few months ago I would have said Birmingham. It’s pretty great. But I guess, now it’s gonna be London soon. ACTUALLY NO! Las Vegas. Of course. I wasn’t even old enough to gamble but it was pretty insane anyway”
Who’s your idol? “Who’s my idol..It’ll probably be someone really nerdy or a rockstar of some form I guess. Someone like Richard Stallman is pretty cool although a bit mad. Alexi Laiho – he’s lead guitarist for Children of Bodem and he looks identical to me. Or I look identical to him. Bruce Dickinson is also pretty awesome. Such an awesome guy. He’s the front man of the one of the best bands in the world, and he’s also a pilot, and he’s an all round ace guy.”
Obviously I had to find a picture of this Mr Laiho to see for myself. Turns out they really are twins. Except Laiho wears eyeliner.
Back to the interview:
Drink of choice: “ALE! I love ale. It’s brilliant. Better if I’ve never heard of it. I love trying all sorts of ales. If i go to a pub and they have an ale I’ve never heard of, I’ll have that.”
Ten minutes later he says he needs to change his answer.
“Actually, it would go Tea, coffee, and then ale.. I just never drink tea here because you all drink coffee. Excessively. ”
Ten minutes later… ‘More questions! Come on”
Best chocolate bar: Any chocolate with little bubbles in it. Bubbly chocolate is the best. Just tastes nice. I also like dark chocolate with 85% cocoa butter. MMMMM”
Favourite App: “Textra – a replacement texting service that doesn’t suck.”
At this point we realise it’s been an whole hour since we’d topped ourselves up with coffee, and decided that enough is enough.
