Whiskey Media Player Profile: Joey Fameli

Our next behind-the-scenes man of action is a cameraman, a husband, a Gary Coleman and a coffee aficionado, allow me to introduce you to the Italian Stallion, the Pink Power Ranger, "The Standard Def" and "The High Def", his After Effects skills have no defects, the one and the only, Joey Fameli
 
Joey, originally a finance major, now splits most of his attention producing videos for Comicvine and Screened.  Just take a look at his work on "Remake Rematch: Nightmare on Elm Street" or "3 Minute Expert: Who is Spiderwoman?".   Joey was also with the Giantbomb crew at E3 and mans a camera at all our Friday live shows.  Whats more, he is the Whiskey Media barista.
 
I asked Joey to give a little autobiographical write up of what makes Joey Joey, and here's what he wrote:   

I run a lot, snowboard, i cook (i'm a total wop in the kitchen), I make beer, I love gambling and casinos, I love pepperidge farms goldfish, pie over cake, love the Droid phone (regardless of what those jerks at Tested think about it).  Other notable hobbies: video games and writing. Grew up in northern California.

Not going to lie, they are beautiful indeed.

@ethan: Real question is this. In a fight between Whiskey Media's two Italian Stallions who would you put your money on. Vinny or Joey? 
Posted by artofwar420

Delicious playa profizy. Holy shit, Joey must be Ghandi-like, but not that Civilization Ghandi; he's a dick.

Posted by KingOfIceland

Now, maybe I've just been better raised  by my parent than other people, but I'm absolutely ASTOUNDED that he thought putting regular ass soap in dishwasher was a good idea. 
 
Also, under what circumstances did work with Gary Coleman?

Posted by Wunder_

Mmm, more profiles.

Posted by kollay

Vinny is the Italian Stallion =(....
 
Oh heck, Joey is cool enough to be one, too.

Posted by MauveForest

Oh my god that dog scares me when it eats the water.

Posted by Sharpless

You know, it's not really fair to Joey to have Ana in the background of his photo. Totally didn't even notice Joey until after the eighth minute of staring at the picture.

Posted by BraveToaster

Nice dog!

@Hamz: Vinny by far.  He's got those soft hands, meaning he wears his gloves during a fight.  Classy. 
 
Also, I would've guessed Joey's a Napa Valley kid, the way he swished and gargled that coffee the first time we see him on camera...the only thing missing was a spit bucket for the wine and it would've been perfect!

He must be a bundle of cuddles if he likes SPEYSIDE whisky, as fightin' men love some Islay! 
 
BUUUUUUT...at least he enjoys scotch, and that's what really matters.  Out of curiosity, what's your favorite single malt, Joey? 
 
As I said before, that dog is pretty damn awesome in ways that all dogs should be awesome.  I thought the myth said that pitbulls aren't allowed in California, or do we get some propaganda news over here in Texas? 
 
Also, I laughed like a muthafucker at "wop".

Pepperidge Farms Goldfish are the BEST!

@jakob187:  I really need to spend a few nights going through a single malt comparative to find some more gems -- but I throughly like the 25 year old Glenfarclas scotch that I had recently.  That was killer.  Speyside's kind of my go-to (and in my price range) scotch.  It's got a nice smooth refinement to it, while still retaining some of the heavier scotch qualities.  I'm not a big fan of the super peaty scotches like Laphroiag, but I do like some of the milder peat scotches.  
  
As far as pitbulls go, well, there not banned, but it makes renting an apartment or house a helluva lot harder (there are a LOT of breed restrictions, especially in San Francisco).  I have been to certain dog friendly beaches and parks where they specifically have signs that say "no pitbulls", which is heartbreaking.  And the dog parks that do allow him, usually clear out within a few minutes.  It doesn't help that my pup has one ear (his mom bit it off at birth).  It's a shame.  They have a bad reputation because they're popular with the wrong people.  My dog is super friendly and awesome though.

Can somebody explain why dogs try to bite water? Do they think that all water is ice? It isn't; FF10 established that quite well.

Poor Joey. He ever going to live down the dish washer incident?

Posted by cooljammer00

He still needs to send me that cookie recipe on Twitter.

Posted by Death_Unicorn

I wish I could be like Joey.
 
 
Also, I demand more behind the scenes stuff!

Posted by RenegadeSaint

Don't worry, Joey.  I've also put regular dish soap in the dishwasher with disastrous/awesome effects.  On the plus side, my kitchen floor received a much-needed mopping.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

Totally forgot that Gary Coleman died.
