Truth Interview Thursday Spotlight - Soulja Bear

Does everybody know what time it is? TITS Time! This week, we are sitting down with the admin that has the worst taste in professional sports teams, please give a warm welcome to Soulja Bear!

Hey Soulja Bear, welcome to TITS. We’re all excited to have you here today. Let’s start out with an easy question. What do you do for work?

I am a delivery driver for a local ice cream company. Basically, I determine what product a store needs and bring it from my truck, sell it to the store and stock it directly onto the shelf. (So… how is the security on your truck?)

Aside from videogames, what hobbies or pastimes do you enjoy?

I enjoy all sports. I really enjoy attending sporting events for all the local teams in my area. My brother has season tickets for the Cowboys, so I’ll go to a good number of games during the season. (Is that your way of telling us you’re a masochist?)

What is a skill you have that you take pride in?

Uhhh, skill? I would say I’m a good driver, I haven't had any tickets in my 11 years of driving (knock on wood). Also, I have a CDL, which is needed for my job, so that counts for something, right?

Any fun facts about yourself?

I can speak fluent Spanish, not really that fun I guess and with me being Hispanic, that shouldn't come as a surprise. I don’t really have any fun facts as I am usually a pretty shy person.

How long have you been playing video games and what are some of your earliest memories with games?

When I was young, we had a Nintendo 64 that me and my brothers would play a lot. Favorite game on there was Mario Kart 64 and I would play it non-stop. so much so that my mom had to hide it somewhere and it was never found again. (How dare she!)

What are your favorite foods, music, movies, shows, etc.?

Foods: I would say my favorite food would definitely be BBQ. Being from Texas, it is not hard at all to find great spots. Also, Texas BBQ is 100% the superior type of BBQ (It’s a solid #3 anyway). With my family being from El Salvador, I would say Pupusas (weird name, I know) would be my second favorite food item. If you've ever tried them, you would know. (So good!)

Music: I really listen to all kinds of music except for maybe country (sorry Disco). I guess lately I’ve been listening more to Electronic music; EDM, Trance, House, stuff like that. I also enjoy hip hop/rap. (Yuuuuuuu Soulja Bear tell 'em) Growing up, my brother would listen to a lot rap so I still listen to a lot of 2000s hip hop because of that. Also, like Rock/Alt music so yeah , like I said, I like a little bit of everything.

Is there any special story or significance to your gamertag?

I mean, not really, it's kind of a dumb reason. Back during the COD 4 days, me and a few IRL friends all changed our names to match. we all had our names be _____ Bear and I chose Soulja because of the rapper I suppose and never changed it since.

Let’s talk a bit about Destiny and Clan Truth specifically. When did you first start playing Destiny, and can you tell us about what drew you to the game?

I played the D1 beta without researching much of the game beforehand and thought, "this game is pretty cool". As many others have said, the gunplay had me hooked. I had an IRL friend get the game too and we played it a lot in the beginning, running VoG a good number of times. Then he dropped out of the game and I stayed, playing solo for the rest of the duration of the game, having to rely on the joys of LFG for raiding. I was also solo for the first year of D2 and pretty much dropped the game after CoO came out. Not even Warmind was enough to bring me back. But Forsaken drew me back in and I figured I would join a clan. I saw a post Witty made on reddit, joined here, and never left. (unfortunately) (I say fortunately, we love having you here!)

What is your favorite/primary class? Why?

It will always be Hunter. In the beginning of D1, I was actually a Titan main for a while but after experiencing the greatness that is the hunter jump, there was no going back. (I’ll grant that Hunter jump > Titan jump)

Who has the best jump?

Hunter, obviously. Is this even a question? (It is, and you got it wrong.)

If you could remove any one weapon from the game, which one and why?

Not necessarily a weapon per se, but I would get rid of rare, blue quality items. It's annoying for them to fill up my postmaster and delete other items in there. (RIP stack of 10 ascendant shards). (Am I the only one that actually checks their postmaster on the regular? Buncha damn hoarders…)

If you could design an exotic weapon or armor, what would it be?

Paying homage to Ice Barrage from RuneScape, a weapon that casts a freezing AoE attack would be cool. It would work horribly in this game, but oh well. I used to play way too much RuneScape, still do at times.

If you could date any character(s) from Destiny, who and why?

Uhhh maybe KADI 55-30, I guess she's kinda hot. She could also recover items that I forget/get left behind, so that’s a plus. (I think she’s actually the most powerful being in the game, considering she has no problem collecting our missed wares from all over the system)

What Destiny characters would you ship together that aren’t already?

I don't think colliding 2 ships together would end too well for those characters. But if that's the case then Shaw Han and Tess would do.

We all know that destiny is considered a "looter shooter" following after Bungie's idea of "playing your way". So, how did you end up combining the two ideas into deleting any well-rolled gun so you're only able to use garbage guns?

Because the game gets too easy sometimes. There's only a few times in life where you can experience the state absolute bliss of getting an Air Assault/Slideshot roll.

We’ve covered the standard questions, now let’s move on to learning more about you.

Which bear is best bear?

I think Yogi the Bear is the best because he's smarter than your average bear and he's very unique. (Son of a bitch… that’s the best answer ever.)

How are you still a Cowboys fan?

Thank you for asking that. You know, I ask myself that every day when I wake up. I was born here and support all of the local teams so it's not like I’m just going to abandon them. That being said, the team frustrates me too much, enough so that my day gets ruined when they lose and even more so when I attend that game. I know there’s only a few from the clan that feel my pain (Hi Professor). (I would invite you to be a Seahawks fan, but they’re pretty frustrating right now too…)

Can you teach us how to do your dance? I know for the first step, you just gotta punch, then crank back three times from left to right, but I don’t know the rest.

Oh sure, then all you have to do is AWWWW YOOOOOOOUUUUUUU

How are you so awesome?

It takes one to know one. (Aww shucks)

What’s your favorite kind of bread?

Texas toast? I guess? idk I just earn the bread, I don't have a preference.

If you had absolute power as an admin to make 2 or 3 sweeping changes to the clan and/or Discord, what would they be?

I don’t really have an answer for this question as the clan as a whole is perfect as is. Maybe finally collect all the clan dues, that have been way behind from most members, by force. We are getting severely low on funds. (Pay up you leeches!)

You, Oblivion, and Saylor are locked in a room (giggity) and only the most sarcastic person is allowed to leave. Who is walking out the door?

Well, I mean if it's just the 2 of us, I think he would win because I’m not very sarcastic at all. (Well played sir.)

Who do you think is the sexiest admin?

Well, I mean, only one has an OnlyFans. That tells you something right there.

Which admin do you want to get in a real fistfight with the most? Do you think you would win?

I love all the admins and would never want to hurt any of them. The answer is Saylor, I'd beat his ass. (Shall we set it up?)

Is Blade Barrage still love? Is it still life?

Sadly, it is no longer because Bungo shattered it into oblivion. (Is Oblivion okay?)

What is the eeriest thing you have ever seen/encountered?

Well one time I looked in a mirror... never again. (I dunno about that, you’re a pretty handsome fella.)

Describe what you were like at age ten.

Kinda the same but just a little shorter.

If you were handed $50,000 in cash and told it had to be used in the next 7 days to take a trip worth writing a book about, where would you go? What would you do?

I would probably travel to Spain as I’ve always wanted to go there. The food looks fantastic and knowing the language helps me as well. I am a huge soccer fan so I’d love to watch a Barca game in person while I’m there.

Who is the best character on Sesame Street? Defend your reasoning.

Oscar seems like the coolest, lives in a trash can and doesn't give any shits. And have you seen the inside of that thing? It's so cozy.

What is the best cookie?

Were you planning on me saying Cookie Monster for the previous question? Well, he was a close second. Good ol' chocolate chip is good enough for me. (I wasn’t, but now I feel slighted.)

On a scale from black to polar, how likely are you to beat Shy in a fight?

Well considering I’ve never seen his hands to confirm he has them, Polar is pretty likely. (Here's one of em.)

Any relation to Wojtek the bear?

No, don't ask me that again.

Any relation to Wojtek the bear?

No, don't ask me that again.

Any relation to Wojtek the bear?

No, don't ask me that again.

Any relation to Wojtek the bear?


If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Probably a cliche answer but I would like to meet more people from the clan. Have already met a few but would definitely love to meet more of the fantastic people we have here. (So, you’re coming to Truth Con?)

Tell us two truths and two lies about yourself.

Nice try Savathun, I’m not playing your game today.

What made you laugh the hardest you’ve ever laughed in your life?

100% has to be the Zezo episode. (That was a great night.)

Do you have any phobias?

Now why would i reveal that information to you? I will tell you that I have a fear of playing this game. Is there a name for that? Destinyphobia? (It’s actually Agrostophobia)

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself that we haven’t covered yet?

Not really. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate this clan, there are some great people in here and I’m glad to be a part of this community.

Soulja, thank you so much for your time! It was great learning more about you!
