Known throughout the gaming community as Ganksuou, Angelo Paolucci is the subject of our next Five Questions. Angelo is the host of the Magic podcast Pitt Imps Podcast hosted on the MTG Cast network. Pitt Imps Podcast has been around for a couple of years. On the ‘cast they discuss all things Magic, as well as the happenings of their everyday lives.
- The Pitt Imps Podcast has been active for a couple years now. How do you keep the content fresh? Luckily the game itself helps a ton. Every 3 months everything changes. We do a main topic each week and I openly admit that coming up with that is the hardest part of the show.
2. If you were allowed to listen to only one CD for a month, what would it be and why? If only for a month it’s not too difficult to answer. I’d switch it up the next month for sure but right now I’d go with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers greatest hits. There are enough good guitar licks to keep me satisfied while the variety of songs could easily match my mood from day to day.
3. Do you enjoy playing magic at larger tournaments, if so, what is the best you have done? I love larger tournaments. It’s the reason I continue to play. As for my best finish that a tough one. I had a 19pt finish and a few 18pt finishes a GP’s but that didn’t get you day two back then. I’ve also made top 8 in a couple large PTQ’s back in the day. So I guess it’s whichever one the reader is more impressed with.
4. Aside from magic, what are some other games you enjoy playing? I game. I game a lot. I play Hearthstone, Civ. series since 1, Pokemon, GTA’s, and the Assassins Creed series. Except Unity, that game was terrible. I mean that’s a few and I’m sure you have a word limit to the article so I’ll shut up now.
5. As someone who puts them self out there, how do you deal with trolls and haters on the Internet? To be honest I don’t deal with them well. I try to ignore them but for me it eats at me when I do but things can get real ugly if I don’t. I get to the point where I won’t block them on Twitter because I don’t want them to get some little victory over me. It’s childish I know but I’m not the type of person to back down from anything. So keeping my trap shut is real hard. I guess you could say I got a dark side. I’ve been known to be very violent in the past. It’s a struggle but I’ve worked real hard on calming that side of me since I don’t need it to survive my day to day as I did at a couple points in my life.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our Five Questions, Angelo! We enjoy your podcast and hope you keep up the excellent work.
