Hot Seat Sunday – matthewkocanda ( cokecan ) https://ift.tt/34F5MNR

The thread that's Still Going™! This is an AMA thread with a twist – the 'victim' gets to name who is next up in the rotation.

There are some rules:

  • Try picking someone who hasn't gone yet
  • It has to be someone who actively posts here
  • No dead people (i.e. notcharlesmanson isn't eligible)
  • Preferably a name that people recognize, 'regular poster' means someone who is a) alive and b) has posted in the last three months
  • Complete the FAQ before posting

If you do the hot seat, you can add up to three names to the list of people who are potential victims.

Possible: /u/AlfredPudding, /u/odiedoodah, /u/Apexified, /u/enyawreklaw, /u/folkart2000, /u/shyndo,

Already Done: /u/juthinc, /u/isuamadog, /u/humanpuck, /u/eyemakepizza, /u/ID10-T, /u/vApe_Escape, /u/mlNikon, /u/EdibleMalfunction, /u/Foment_Life, /u/Kittybit8, /u/Vishousness, /u/staybert, u/TeslaDelMar/, u/UnappreciatedRobot, u/matthewkocanda

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How'd you get your handle?

Well, it's my full name. So…

How long have you been mixing for?

Shit, I think something like 4 years now? I guess ~seriously~, I would say only a total of 2 years. I only went full send for about that time. Now I just don't care all that much and mix what I like, stay silent while I test new ideas, and only drop shit that becomes a new standby for me.

Current flavor or profile obsession?

Honestly, just cold fruit recipes or drink recipes. I used to fuck with bakeries HEAVY, but now, for some reason, anything that has custard, ice cream, or really anything that makes bakeries enjoyable, seems to give me mad nausea. It sucks, because I REALLY miss using CAP Marshmallow and CAP Vanilla Custard.

Most/Least disappointing flavors that was/not as expected?

I don't really know. Nothing has really fucked my world up all that much. I think a better question would just be what are my favorite flavors, in which case I would answer:

  • VT Fizzy Sherbet
  • FLV Pink Guava
  • FLV Yakima Hops
  • FA Watermelon
  • FA Strawberry
  • INW Two Apples
  • FLV Sour Apple
  • FW Beetle Juice

There are others, but off the top of my head, these came to mind first. So, do with that what you want. I don't care.

Mixing Milestone?

It's pretty tight that, to this day, people still talk about Drunken Pears. I'm also really proud of IPA Smoke, honestly. It's not like that recipe is anything groundbreaking, but it's something I spent months trying to figure out, and I still go back to it every so often, so that's cool.

Recipes you admire/love?

I am one of the worst offenders of wanting other people to mix my shit and provide feedback, without actually mixing other peoples' shit up. However, there are a few recipes that either inspired something I did, gave me some insight into something I was unsure of, or just plain slapped. So here's that list of shit I can remember:

Guava Lime Candy by notcharlesmanson

The Pink by shyndo

Rainforest by staybert

Strap-On by ID10-T

Shurb by CaptainCannibal

Listen, I'm bad at this. But I like these.

White whale?

I've accomplished most everything I've set out to, honestly ( this is not a flex, I just have very low standards, if I have an idea and it's vapeable for more than 30mls, I'm happy ), but I really wish I could have these things in vape form ( yes, I know some of these have been done, but they just didn't hit how I want in some way ) :

  • A proper Old Fashioned
  • Sour Patch Watermelon
  • American Spirit Blacks
  • A recipe that changes depending on how you vape it ( Amorphous came close, but it still isn't how I want it ).

How would you describe your mixing style?

Uhh, I really don't know. I don't know why any of y'all ask me for advice or to do any of these things because I feel like I'm one of the worst mixers in terms of imparting knowledge. I just throw shit around until it works how I want it, then it's done. I'm the Jackson Pollock of vaping.

Advice for new mixers?

The "influencer" side of me wants to say like, "do your research, keep trying, don't get discouraged" etc. But honestly, just mix some shit that you like, and don't worry about anything else. Feedback from other mixers is good, but it's still just a subjective thing. Who gives a shit, at the end of the day, if you are enjoying what you vape, then that's all that matters. Your tastes will evolve as you improve, and the only way you'll improve is to keep doing it. Branch out. Pick up a couple of random 15mls of flavors in every order. Find things that seem interesting to you. And use this sub as a beacon of information. So just, as I've said since the days of Beginner Blending, "keep mixing, keep fucking up, and stay fucking evil." I implore you though, stop fucking shitposting because you're lazy. Like, listen, I'm a lazy fucking cuck, but stop being that asshole that just spams shit to the sub because you don't want to do the work. We've all done the work to put the information out there, so just fucking spend the few seconds it takes to search what you want to know in the search bar, and THEN, if you still can't find an answer, make your post. It's really not that fucking difficult.
