Five Minutes of Fame: Sopohomore talks business, tomatoes, video games
Sarah Krusleski: So you have a first name for both of your names?
Andrew Michael: Actually I have a first name for all three of my names.
Krusleski: Unleash it man. I can take it.
Michael: Andrew Nathaniel Michael.
Krusleski: Wow … What leads you to business?
Michael: I bounced around a few things in the past and over time while I was talking to friends and what have you I started to lean toward business … And then my sister had me take a personality test that said, take business, you’re good for that. That or stand-up comedian, one of the two, but go for business. I’ve been kind of set in that mode ever since.
Krusleski: What if she had told you to become a stand-up comedian?
Michael: I dunno. Some people tell me I have a future in that. Some people tell me I do not, so I think I’ll stick with business.
Krusleski: Yeah, you don’t have to worry about tomatoes in business. So how do you feel about tomatoes? Did that factor in your business decision?
Michael: I don’t know, tomatoes are… I like tomatoes on hamburgers. Apart from that… tomatoes can stay on a plant. I don’t care.
Krusleski: Are you concerned about the FDA’s decision to not have tomatoes anymore? And, like, we can’t have them on campus.
Michael: That would suck.
Krusleski: Oh, it does suck. At Taco Bell, they don’t put tomatoes on our tacos right now, because of the FDA.
Michael: There was a tomato on my sandwich at Wendy’s today. I enjoyed it.
Mauricio Lazo: There’s going to be a story on that.
Krusleski: So, all right, so what else besides tomatoes do you care about? Tomatoes and business.
Michael: Tomatoes and business. Video games, mostly first-person shooters: Halo, Assassin’s Creed. I kind of go for the whole killing genre.
Krusleski: I heard that they’re going to have a girl assassin in the sequel to Assassin’s Creed. She’s going to be spunky and just a stereotypical female fighting video game character. How do you feel about that?
Michael: That sounds kind of creepy? And it doesn’t fit.
Krusleski: Recommend any games coming out?
Michael: Games coming out? In a totally different genre, I recommend Spore. That’s a computer game where you get to play God. That sounds awesome.
Krusleski: Gosh. So you enjoy playing God?
Michael: You might say that. That sounded wrong. Oh well, wouldn’t be the first time.
