Like A Little Drop Of Ink In A Glass Of Water

You may all remember the interview meme that went around last year, and Avitable decided to resurrect it. He asked me questions before, more than a year ago, and I thought it would be fun to do it again.

1. Shouldn't you be getting married and start popping out kids soon?

I'll have one when you have one. And no, I don't mean Amy. I mean when a baby comes out of your vagina, I'll push one out of mine.

2. As a corollary to #1, when one of the kids looks like me, will your boyfriend mind?

He's a fairly hairy guy, I might be able to convince him it's his.

3. Tell me about a band that I don't even know exists and am missing out on experiencing.

I would love to. For starters, Editors. They're sort of a modern Joy Division, but I like them a lot better. Oh, and Starsailor. They're like Echo and the Bunnymen meets Coldplay. Doves are always good. The National always relaxes me.

Oh, and if you like quirky indie rock (which I believe you all should) I highly recommend The Decemberists. The lyrics are outstanding.

4. Since Missouri is the "Show Me" state, what will you show me?

That depends, of course, on how much I've had to drink.

5. If you had to choose between never seeing a movie or listening to music again, or never having sex with another person again, which would you choose?

I know this isn't going to be the popular choice, but I'd pick music and movies. I can get off watching movies by myself if need be. It would be tough, but I could do it. Not listening to music or seeing movies would probably kill me.

Want to be part of it? Follow these instructions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

I totally knew the answer to #5 before I asked it.

If you want to interview me, I'll answer in your comments.

I'm going to guess that all of the bands you recommended skew very male, don't they?

Robin said...

a. you have good taste in music, i trust whatever you say when it comes to it.

2. please, i would like 5 questions.

Hahahaha, I love that you would give up sex before the other things. And The Decemberists are definitely awesome.

I'm not very good at listening to new music. I like what I like and it's difficult to accept "new".

I could do without movies, no doubt.

Avitable- Well, maybe if girls were better at indie rock without being folksy, I'd like them better. I will think of some questions for you

Robin- Thank you and I will email you your questions soon

Hilly- Well... There are somethings I can do myself, and making good music is not one of them

Whall- My boyfriend's like that- Even with an artist he likes, he'll listen to the same old cd over and over instead of the new one he doesn't know as well.

you don't know me, but can you interview me?

Josh said...

You should totally interview me. We're like best friends who haven't talked in ages. ZOMG Mandy, you better call me for Christmas. Seriously, it's all I want for Christmas.

P.S. The cookies and the card were AMAZING.

Amanda said...

EdMcBride- Sure, how do I contact you?

Josh- Ha, sure. I'll ask you questions. And I will call you on Christmas.
