In addition to setting up interviews for guests on The Everything Film Show, lately I've also been doing some interviews of my own.
I have to admit, although I coach people on how to interview with media, I think I'd forgotten how odd it can be sometimes to find yourself "in the hot seat." It can be much harder to sound poised and clever than one might think, and of my recent interviews there is at least one for which I would have liked to have a "redo." Overall, however, it's been a lot of fun. I've been sharing opinions on everything from definitions of masculinity to complaining list-subscriber idiots (I added the idiot here since the article fails to mention that all subscribers to the list referenced had to sign up and confirm themselves, and were bi-annually reminded of how to leave the list, and yet I still received various oddball and cranky threats). One of my favorite interviews was sharing my thoughts on getting started in entertainment, from which you will see that "safety first" is something of a mantra for me when offering any such advice. Just recently, I also did something similar on an entertainment panel that was convened to give the public opportunity to ask such questions in a forum - that will be on television soon and I'll be sure to post the link as soon as I can get hold of it!
It's been a busy and relatively exciting couple of months. Thanks for sticking with me on this wacky adventure!
