James Kozanecki

Spinning around on my chair lost to insanity due to my Darth Vader figurine still tormenting me because of my poor efforts to shoot him with a Nerf gun. I decided to strap him to a firework and blow him up in my paddock… well that’s what I would have done if I had a paddock and a firework.

However to help ease my pain, my new massive Nerf gun was well on its way in the mail, so I had the delightful thought of putting a thick three inch foamed bullet into his face. While caught up in imaginary thoughts, my computer distracted me by letting me know someone else had answered the call to do another random questionnaire, STEP UP MR. JAMES KOZANECKI!

*CROWD GOES WILD, WHILE A WOMAN IN THE CROWD YELLS, “I WANT TO HAVE YOUR BABIES.”

A Bit About Koz

Formerly the Community Manager at Gamespot AU, James Kozanecki has been on the front lines of Australian gaming news for years. An experienced journalist, ‘Koz’ has shown his passion for gaming issues such as Australia’s R18+ rating.

Kozzi is a man of many hats when it comes to his current work space with Mindscape Asia Pacific. As the Marketing Co-ordinator he throws game previews on a hook to media, puts together strategy plans, and thinks up cool ideas. It might look like he just lives and breathes for work.

While away from Mindscape he drops the unstoppable machine work ethic and returns to his lifestyle of being a normal human that enjoys: movies, going camping, playing video games, Krav Maga and keeping in shape.

Krav Maga is Wednesdays

 QUESTION TIME!

Q. IF YOU WERE IN BAYWATCH, WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER WEAR IN YOUR RESCUE SCENES, TIGHT RED BUDGIE SMUGGLERS OR A MANKINI? WHY?

Budgee Smugglers, you don’t want to fool around in those sort of scenarios and having a mankini go up over your arms could impede your shoulder movements.

Q. IS IT TRUE THAT ONLY ON TUESDAY NIGHTS YOU BECOME JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE?

Yes. On Mondays I go for more of a Vin Diesel look, Wednesdays and Thursdays are sort of a hit-or-miss depending on karaoke. I’m not opposed to belting out Barbie Girl, as it is my go to karaoke song. Unfortunately on the weekends my girlfriend makes me stop, she doesn’t appreciate Aqua as much as she should….

Q. WITHOUT LOOKING GUESS HOW MANY KEYS YOU HAVE ON YOUR KEY CHAIN? HOW MANY ARE THERE REALLY?

Two keys and a USB stick, precisely. *glances over* Yep, two keys and USB stick.

Q. HOW MANY RINGS DO YOU ALLOW BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE?

If it’s my work phone, one then I answer. What’s the point of making someone wait when the phone sits 30cm away from me? If it’s my mobile, then well it just depends on how quickly I can reach it.

Q. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU SHAVED WITH YOUR SHAVERS?

Head and beard. Being bald makes it a pretty quick and easy process.

Q. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU PUT IN YOUR NOSE?

My girlfriend’s finger.

Q. HOW MANY 4’S ARE THERE ON YOUR KEYBOARD?

Three

Q. WHOSE BACK WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHAVE RIGHT NOW?

I don’t know, Chewbacca I guess? I reckon he’d be ripped as hell and all that hair just hides it.

Q. WHAT BUTTON ON YOUR PS3/XBOX360 or PC CONTROLLER/KEYBOARD DO YOU ENJOY PRESSING? WHY? 

R1/R2 as they’re usually the trigger buttons that gets the business done.

Q. HOW FAST CAN YOU EAT A PADDLE POP?

I’ve never timed it, but I assume I’d get a brain freeze if I tried. I prefer to take my time and enjoy it.

Q. WHAT WAS THE LAST GAME YOU PLAYED THAT MADE YOU WANT TO THROW YOUR T.V OR COMPUTER OUT THE WINDOW?

Good question, Guacamelee was annoying me the other day so I stopped. I’ll probably come back to it in a few weeks. It’s a great game though!

Q. HOW DO YOU EAT A CARAMELLO KOALA?

Start at the feet and make my way up, the same as a Freddo Frog

Q. DO YOU PREFER TO USE GARNIER FRUCTIS OR SCHWARZKOPF? WHY?

Neither, no point when you’ve got no hair!

Q. HOW MANY M’S DOES 104.9 HAVE?

Three

Q. DID SANTA GIVE YOU WANT FOR CHRISTMAS?

Yep, I wanted camping gear which I got.

Q. WHAT CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOWS 1 OR 2 POWERS/WEAPONS WOULD YOU WANT TO HAVE?

The Chaos Claws for sure. They’re basically flaming boxing gloves – who wouldn’t want that?!
