First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
First i just played Realquake Deathmatch (with friends in my village), and was damn good at that. :) Then nobody wanted to play against me. So we invented a rule for me, i must only use the boomstick. Then we could play again, but it was damn hard for me, you see. I ran away everytime anyone came near me. So I got quite good at running away, it was almost impossible to catch me, so then nobody wanted to play against me again!? =( It was then i started to play single player and record my own qdq. So I did my own qdq through whole quake. And after that I started to do records for sda. Quite some story huh? ;)

First speedrunning demo?
2-Player Easy Marathon Run Through Episode2 in 3:58
Me and Alexander Lindgren.

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
Nightmare run E2m5_039 <--- beaten
Easy run Hipend_018 <--- beaten
My favorite demo now must be Nightmare run of Hipend. Its cool! Watch it! ;)

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
The demos that startled me the most when i was new to the speedrunning community was Taipales e1m7 runs. They still are awesome! They might be faster and records with more tricks, but the E1M7 runs will always be my favorites.

Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
Overall = Joszef.
Runs = Markus Taipale.
100% = Thomas Stubgaard.
Marathon = Martin Selinus.
Coop = Shine and Ravage.

Favorite trick in a demo?
Taipales E1m7 jump over the boss on the nightmare run.

Favorite QdQ release?
Blue Hell Done Quick ;) I did the story and did some running that we cannot forget ;). My first quake project!

Favorite original Quake map?
E3m7! ............................ Just kidding =)
E1m2 has some eerie history, I once broke the nightmare run, when I was SUPER NEWBIE at running. I had playd for ages on that map to get the record. I was so glad that I had made it, I considered myself as a very bad runner but when I broke the record on the second map on quake i was the master! :). Unfortunately there was a hidden demo on the tables that was 1 sec faster :(. But that didnt stop me from taking the 100% nightmare demos. :-) So my favorite map is e1m2.

Favorite custom map?
All DOOM maps! The levels that are small in size I do like too.

Most annoying monster/map?
Monster = Ogre's! - I dream nightmare's of them from the demo e2m5_039
Map = E3m7 Stubby is the killing master of this map, thus the master of all fears! :P

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
DOOM is a very good game! I like both the deathmatch and singleplayer in Doom.
Quake2 is average for singleplayer, could be better. Deathmatch is awfull.
Quake 3 Arena is great for deathmatch! Too bad my little brother beats me in this game all the time, he got some real skills!

What do you think of Quake now?
You can never stop playing it! It rocks! Even now 2002, there isnt any better action 3d game that has half the score.

Quake Purity Test score? link
74.5% quake pure!

Anything else you want to add here?
The best thing you can do with Quake is playing with friends, doing either records or deathmatch. I rare do single records, i find it more fun doing it together. Everyone that hasnt tried COOP over LAN, DO IT! Now I end this profile with a
famous quote: YOU CAN DO IT! - Adam Sandler.
