Favorite DOOM demos:
Too many to list.. christ, that's why I started the DSDA. :)
Favorite Executables to use:
Doom(2). PrBoom, Boom, and MBF if I must. Zdoom and Legacy are quite nice though, but are really leaning towards being a different game.

Do you play DOOM more than any other game?
Perhaps I have been playing more Quake2 online than actual DOOM play recently.
Ever played multiplayer DOOM?
Doom2.exe and a wee bit of Zdoom coop. Used to play with my brothers back in 1995 when we weren't very good at games.
About when did you start playing DOOM?
Do you make maps?
Yerp, but rarely. I don't have the patience... or skill.
Yes, but I was disappointed in the gameplay.
Favorite monster / most hated monster?
Lots of favs... Lost souls would be the most hated.

I'm a desperately bland dude. A loner who doesn't like people in general and will never amount to anything. I'm married to a beautiful woman named Cheryl.
I collect and watch demos for the above games; and I am one of the world's most hardcore demofreaks there are for FPS games.
If you are willing to share, I'd be interested in hearing possible additions to the lists above... I think they speak for themselves; content and intelligence in a passionately created art form.
