My recent interview with Diesel was so much fun that I decided I wanted to do more interviews. Unfortunately, I didn't actually ask anyone else if they wanted to be interviewed - so that makes it a little tough.
Then I remembered this post from 2 years ago where I simply interviewed myself, and how huge of a hit that was. Problem solved!
So here I am again, chatting with myself. Enjoy.
Not much, sup with you?
Last I heard you were looking for a new job. How's that working out for you?
Well, in the last month I've applied for 23 jobs. Miraculously, 9 of them have offered me positions and I've accepted them all. It's my feeling that it's better to have too many jobs than not enough.The only drawback is I have to work 167.5 hours per week. But I do have a spare 1/2 hour in there to take a shower, so it's not all bad.
I haven't heard jack about The Receders in months. Did you guys break up?
Funny you should mention that. NO. Our bass player had to take a new job in Nashville and for some reason he wasn't interested in flying back to Minnesota every month to play a biker bar for no money. He's kind of quirky that way. Bottom line is we found a new guy and we are in the process of preparing for our first concert in January. Where, you ask? Why right here! Tickets went on sale today, so if you're interested in attending, get them now. The last time we played there we sold out in 2 weeks.
What about Austin's Skate Plaza project? Is that thing ever going to get built?
Man, it's like you're
Ok... word on the street is that your side business, Virus Stompers, is doing pretty well. Do you send the people who write viruses flowers and candy for supplying you all that business?
Hardly. Those scumbags should be hung up by their trojan horses and flogged. The world would be a much better place if every time you used the internet or email you weren't at risk of being infected. Fortunately, if you follow some basic safety and maintenance guidelines you should be just fine. In the meantime, if you would like to be updated on a weekly basis with helpful safety tips and virus-related news, you can always become a Facebook fan or follow us on Twitter. We've gotten a lot of positive feedback from these little info-tweets.
That was like 3 advertisements in a row. Aren't you ashamed?
Oh hell no. That's exactly what personal blogs are all about. Everytime we publish something we're basically advertising for ourselves in one way or another, whether it be our family, our recipes or our writing. Personally, I'm always selling my humor in the hopes that someone from a hit sitcom or humor magazine will read my blog and beg me to work for them. I hear it happens all the... well, I hear it happened once. But still, that's not never!
You just used the word "everytime" in that last answer. Is "everytime" even a word?
I always thought so, but according to the online dictionaries it isn't. I wonder if anyone else uses it.
What the hell is going on with blogs these days? Is it just me or are blogs becoming yesterday's news?
It seems that as more and more people are coming online with things like Facebook and Twitter, more and more people are also moving away from blogs - both in terms of writing them and reading/commenting on them.
I fear the heyday of blog activity is waning. My comments have dropped from the high 30s a few years ago to 10-15 these days. Likewise, the number of newly published posts in my feed reader is slowing down at a rapid rate as well. It just seems there are too many other distractions out there and people only have so much time. Personally, I recommend that people visit View From The Cloud first and then check their FB statuses etc next. But that's just me.
What are you wearing?
Ok, that's just weird. Even for you. But if you must know, I'm wearing a lovely cotton tee-shirt and jeans, just like you.
For some reason I don't believe that you really got a new job, let alone 9 of them. Are you BS-ing me?
Wow, nothing gets by you, does it. The straight answer is no, I didn't get a new job. But I do have a job interview tomorrow, so wish me luck!
