TCN Interview, Donald and Daniel Orr by Kindar

TCN Interview, Donald and Daniel Orr

What is your name:
My name is Donald, Mine's Daniel. Yes, someone mentioned something about interviewing us individually, but no one stopped me when I entered the interview room a few minutes after Danny. No, I didn't lie. No one asked my name, someone pointed out that I was cutting it short for the interview so I hurried here. No, I'm not leaving. Or rather, if he's leaving I'm leaving too. We're doing this because we were asked nicely, if you're going to turn around and be an ass now, that isn't something either one of us feels like dealing with. So are we continuing? Or ending this?

Where were you born:
We were born in Pittsburgh, PA. Back then it was the outskirts of it to be precise, it got gobbled up in 2032 I think. Really? Yes, I remember reading something about it, something about Pittsburgh expanding its border to compete on some grant thing.

Do you have any family:
We have 8 wonderful kids. 7, Aiden forgot our birthday. 8 kids, and 3 brothers. No no one is married. Pat's seeing someone, but I don't know how serious it is. It's serious. But I don't think it's going to last. His BF isn't ready for our lifestyle.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years:
In ten years we're going to be on a beach somewhere warm, bleaching out fur with a fruity drink in one hand and a lifeguard in the other. No we won't. Us, retire? It's never going to happen. We're going to be making games until the day you keel over. Don't listen to him, he's a workaholic. My brother gets up in the middle of the night to tweak programs. I do not. How about that-I had to go to the bathroom, and I noticed we had a notice from the client so I checked it and he mentioned something wrong with the version we'd sent him to test, so I looked at it and it was an easy fix. He was still at it when I got up at seven in the morning. That's what he calls an easy fix

What is your goal:
Hopefully to have grandkids. We keep bugging the kids for one of them to go out and find himself a girl, but they're still having fun living. I swear, this generation doesn't know how to buckle down and make the hard decisions. Says the guy who agonized over leaving his comic book collection behind when we moved to the west coast. They're not even thirty, they have time. I just want them to have a good life. Kids will happen, I'm not worried about that.

What obstacles have you had in your life:
The water shortage of 2039 hurt. I think he means personal obstacles. I know what he means, I just don't' know what to say. We're not movie characters, I don't think we ever had any 'obstacles' we've lived a relatively charmed life. There was the year Patrick joined our family, that was something of a rough time.

How have you overcome them:
Oh, we tag teamed him.

What are you most passionate about:
Our kids, our brothers, our programming and other guys, in that order. No, I have nothing to say about it, he's right.

Do you have a pet peeve:
People who can't tell us apart? Be serious Donny, if that was it, you'd always be angry, well angrier. Smokers annoy me, no, not vappers, those I don't mind, it doesn't smell bad. It the retards who insist on smoking cigarettes. Not only do those things stink, but they're killing those around them. They should be illegal.

What relationship-romantic or otherwise-has been the most significant in your life:
My brother. You're going to make me blush. Idiot. I do agree with him. Our relationship has defined our lives. Yes, business and personal. Yes, we live together. I'd watch my tone if I were you, I'll just walk, but Donny could very well punch your lights out. If you have a problem with us being lovers, we can end this right now.

What has been your greatest accomplishment:
Not slamming your head into the wall. Donny, come on, he said he was sorry. I'm going to say it was raising seven of our eight kids. No, we didn't raise Patrick. He lived with his mother, we only found out about him when he was eighteen. I guess we can add being able to mend the fence with Margarette as a great accomplishment. It isn't like Pat gave us a choice. He wasn't going to let us remain distant.

Your greatest failure:
Letting Margarette leave with Patrick when she was pregnant. I know it worked out, but I still think a lot of drama would have been avoided if we'd gone after her then. I don't know, I think it was selling Castle Crash when we did. Clearly we could have made more money off it before selling it.

What do you consider your greatest strength:
Stamina. Creativity. Creative stamina.

Your greatest weakness:

Our kids, we just can't say no to them. You can't, I certainly am able to put my foot down. Sure you are. That's why Adam got a car when he was fourteen even though he didn't officially have a drivers license yet.

How do you compensate for your weakness(es):

Do you have kids? And are you able to say no to them? I didn't think so. There's no compensating for that. You just learn to live with it and hope to God they're not as sneaky as you were at their age.

Are you well-liked? Why or why not? If not, would you want to change that? What changes would you be willing to make:
Yeah, we're well-liked. We help the community and the industry. It's very difficult not to like us, especially if we can isolate you.

What one thing is essential to having a good day? Or Describe your hypothetical best day ever:
Any day that I spend with Donny is an amazing day. It gets better if the kids come and visit.

What is your decision-making process:
I make the decision. Then I ignore it and do whatever I want.

Who do you admire most:
I'm sitting next to him.

Which Deadly Sin would you be:
Lust, with a side of Wrath for Donny.

Who is your role model:
We never wasted time looking to others on how to live our life. I mean two brothers who are lovers, you tell me who's out there for us to emulate.

What is your favorite book:
The Copernik compendium of programing language. He isn't kidding, he's read the thing three times already and he'd on the fourth one. It's a good book. If you say so, for myself I'm a fan of light romance. Yes, straight or gay, all that matters is that it's well written. I'm on book six of Amanda Romanov 'The lovers of the moon' series. It's good, she mixes the genders so it's not too predictable.

What is your weapon of choice:
I can't answer that in on this show. I think he means in a fight. I know that what he means, and while you're adept with your fists I'd much rather rip the guy's clothes off and get him on his-I told you I couldn't answer that here.

Do you have any spiritual belief/s:
I believe that if I do the best I can to be a good person, the world will be a better place. I'm with him on that.

If you could be in a Disney movie, what would your role be:
They'd have to remake it a fourth time, but I think we could be kids in the 'parent trap.' We're too old, we'd be the parents. Like I said, they'd have to remake it again.

Which emoji describes you the best:
None of them. We are far too unique to be embodied by something like that. But if you want, we'll make you some for cheap.
