Greetings! Welcome to the 16th interview of Gru's News! You may ask, what is this? Well, this is a series where I interview some of your favorite PMC members! The rules for this are simple, I ask 10-15 questions about them or their account, and they answer the questions. Today's interviewee is the man, the myth, the legend, CornCobDog!
Zappy's Questions n' Answers
Before we get started, tell the audience a bit about yourself.
CornCobDog: hey im cob, 15 turning 16 year old artist that used to be based in australia, and pmc is a my main place for sharing my art, which also includes my texture packs
also i say funny words and sometimes use my alt account

ZappyGru: Alright then! Nice to meet you.

What is your alt account's username?
CornCobDog: oh its a pretty small account dont know if youve heard of it
FishStacks, i think it was


ZappyGru: That's funny, I'm his alt account.
What content do you usually make on PMC?
CornCobDog: well, i love posting wallposts, but recently i havent been doing that much recently
id love to say that im working on crispy cabin, my resourcepack, but im actually not lol, im taking a break for now

ZappyGru: That's okay, we all have our breaks every now and then!

CornCobDog:
i am working on a new season of creator cards though, that is one of my favourite projects thus far, and im excited to bring it back
just saying, ive never said anything about creator cards 3 before though, so thats a planet zappygru exclusive for you

ZappyGru: Cool!
So what you're saying is that this is the first time this project has been publicly mentioned?
CornCobDog: yep, this is the first time that i have announced the return of creator cards
last season was 3 months ago
here i'll even drop an exclusive ;)
shooting for bigger creators this time, but ill definitely still be doing the pmc folk

ZappyGru: It looks great! The shading, proportions, and colors all fit well together.


CornCobDog: thanks zappy!
What kind of hobbies do you have on your free time?
CornCobDog: obviously art is a big one, but i love doing sports as well, running, basketball, professional taekwondo, i got the whole lot
i try to think i make youtube videos with some consistency, but maybe not yet
and i love being in discord vc and just chatting about things, its very nice


ZappyGru: That's actually pretty funny, most of the things you just said are hobbies that I have in some way.

CornCobDog: nice!
How did you find PMC? Was it by a video, a friend, or did you just happen to stumble upon it?
CornCobDog: ive actually been on pmc since 2018, just lurking and not posting much
i think i found it out by mickey joe's resourcepack "mickey's relatively enhanced default" so big props to him

ZappyGru: Interesting, most people who have found this site is because of popular submissions such as the one you mentioned.

CornCobDog: yep it be like that
and i love how with my pack crispy cabin, ive also introduced a good many people to this site too

ZappyGru:
That's great that you're introducing many new people onto the site!

CornCobDog: we all do that in a way, even youd be doing it :)


ZappyGru: I guess so!

What would be considered your greatest strengths and weaknesses?
hmm well my greatest strength would be that im quite easy to get along with
i hope
im just more passive than most people, and usually im the first to apologise for anything
greatest weakness would be envy, i very easily get envious of people and often become sad just scrolling on

twitter lmao
though that could also be for other reasons, you see tons of tragic takes on twitter

ZappyGru: I never really liked Twitter for the endless amount of people who seem to never take the time to use their brains just for a few seconds.

CornCobDog: an awful lot of stupid takes that shouldve remained in the drafts folder
What sort of style of submissions do you generally make?
CornCobDog: i try to keep my art style consistent as of late, so more desaturated colours are always a win
in the past ive focussed on unique concepts and innovative use of optifine ctm, which was always what helped my
older packs stand out

i still believe than uniqueness is a very important part to getting those 100 diamonds, so i try to stay true to that in all of my submissions

ZappyGru: Quality over quantity is always better than quantity over quality!
What do you normally do on PMC?
CornCobDog: well, i love browsing through the top trending resourcepacks for the day, and looking all wallposts
i havent posted many recently, maybe i should change that

ZappyGru: You should. Your creations are great, and I'd definitely check it out when it's uploaded!

CornCobDog: thanks!

How did you come up with the username, CornCobDog?
CornCobDog: hmmm well, i love corn on the cob personally, and i loved dogs, so i just merged the two
its also really important to have a easy nickname you can get from your name, for exmaple PinkuRinku i would call
him pinku, BoldMuddy i could call muddy, so for me, CornCobDog becomes cob

ZappyGru: It's a short and sweet username that has both a good sound to it, and good nickname potential.

CornCobDog: thanks zappy
or would gru be better?


ZappyGru: Originally, I wanted to have my nickname as Gru, but most people went by Zappy or Zap.
Eventually, it resonated with me, and so I became used to those names.

On your PMC account, it seems that you have a Youtube channel, what do you normally post on there?
CornCobDog: yep, so my youtube is a hot mixed bag nowfor the next year, i really do look forward to being more consistent, now that ive reached 100 subsi will be uploading resourcepack update videos almost every month i hopeand i will be still making fun videos with friends, and fellow artists, playing on smps and the like
What kind of resource packs are you talking about?
CornCobDog: crispy cabin mainly

ZappyGru:
That's interesting to hear.

It seems that you're good friends with chickenpants93 and FishStacks, how did you guys become friends?
CornCobDog: sorry chickenpants if youre reading this, im not too sure how we met, but for fishstacks, yeah we are pretty close
it came from interacting in comments, wallposts, and i think its mostly how we can bounce off each other decently well
wont lie, it was the community that helped us become closer, through the funny fights, the british arc, the alt accounts, all of that was fun to do and brought us closer (edited)
oh and we also spent 20 hours working on one pack together, that became fish's biggest pack
and now we share a twitter account so

Another question that is related to this, how did the multiple alt accounts joke happen?
CornCobDog: i have no clue, i think it came from fishstacks claiming that he was my alt accounti thought that was hilarious since i was level 20 at the time, and owning a level 60 account was stupidly sick
Oho, it seems that we're near the end of the interview! I got a few smaller questions to ask you before we wrap things up!

What is your favorite food/drink?
CornCobDog: corn
and uh
corn juice

What is your favorite game to play (assuming it's not Minecraft)?
CornCobDog: trying to get into terraria decently

but its a tough game to get into haha
i love smash, but im the worst at it

ZappyGru: If you ever fought me in Super Smash Bros., I'd definitely destroy you!

CornCobDog: i actually was 10th in the world for kirby amazing mirror 200% speedrun
oh ill be waiting for that day

ZappyGru: Smash Ultimate, right?

CornCobDog: sure
i mainly played brawl but ultimate works
ill still be mashing keys randomly

With our final question, what would you like to say to the audience before we finish things up?
CornCobDog: uhh hey if i dont shill myself no one will
subscribe to my youtube https://www.youtube.com/c/CornCobDog maybe check out a vid or two or seven
join the discord, you wont believe how many cool artists we've managed to pull https://discord.gg/z7VrCagrMK
and yeah uh follow my twitter https://twitter.com/CornCobDog and the alt account i share with fishstacks :) https://twitter.com/fishcob
thanks zap!


What a wonderful interview by another wonderful user! Thank you, CornCobDog for interviewing you, and thank you, audience, for reading to the end!

This is interesting! I don't know if I'm the only one to point this out, but looks like there's a few inconsistencies with your spelling and grammar. Just a small thing I noticed!

Alright, here we go:
  • "What is you're favorite game to play (assuming it's not Minecraft)?"
    This should be "your"
  • "What is you're favorite food/drink?"
    Same as above
  • Capitalization. Some of Corn's responses aren't capitalized where they should
  • "i have no clue, i think it came from fishstacks claiming that he was my alt accounti thought that was hilarious since i was level 20 at the time, and owning a level 60 account was stupidly sick"
    I think you forgot a space here
  • "CornCobDog: yep, so my youtube is a hot mixed bag nowfor the next year, i really do look forward to being more consistent, now that ive reached 100 subsi will be uploading resourcepack update videos almost every month i hopeand i will be still making fun videos with friends, and fellow artists, playing on smps and the like"
    A few spaces, SMP should be written in all caps, and "I've" needs an apostrophe
  • "in the past ive focussed on unique concepts and innovative use of optifine ctm, which was always what helped my older packs stand out"
    Misspelled "focused"
And that's all I could find!

Thanks for telling me about this. The “you’re” was definitely a typo I didn’t notice. For Cob’s answers, most of the interviewees will have the answers just copied and pasted directly from their original message with minor changes to fit the formatting. That’s why they’re all lowercase. That’s just how he answered the questions.
