OH YEAH, diane cluck interview! forgot to update you guys on that. i was on such a high that day. i was feelin' good, relaxed, excited about my show and everything. then the show just...

i mean i know i enjoyed it. but i got absolutely no donations > : /
that's a 4PM to 6PM show. prime fuckin' time, and nobody listening felt compelled whatsoever to donate to the coolest radio station around.

then, the interview comes around. diane calls, exxxciting! i tell her to call right back, i'min the middle of a song and our program director josh has told me that what he usually does for phone interviews is have 'em call back during announcing and put 'em directly on air. so yeah that's what i did - and i put her on air. and she says hello, and it goes over the air. and i say hello - AND SHE HEARS NOTHIGN.

aaaagghh agh agh ah i was running around calling people pushing buttons willy nilly trying to get things working. diane kept saying hello hello hello and i tried to respond and nothing worked. so embarrassing so awful i had like a panic attack, i called josh, explained what i was doing, he had no idea what i was doing wrong. after a few minutes, diane actually got on a piano or a harmonium (not exactly sure) and started playing for the audience. while i was trying to figure that shit out.

finally, out of nowhere things started working. i have no idea what i did how it started working, what was wrong in the first place but i finally got to the interview. and it went well. she was a lot more open and easy to talk to than i thought originally. i hadn't really heard an interview with her before, but with her phoningitin performance she didn't seem very talkative at all. and when i talked to her briefly in bogart, georgia at next to last fest last year, i was just a babbling fool and felt like i was intruding in her personal space.

but yeah the interview itself went well. i have it digitally recorded and will be uploading it somewheres sometime soon. so keep on the lookout for a link in the verynearfuture.

this one's for the ladies

i keep forgetting i have a blog......... what am i sposed to do with this thing anyways

i wish i could go back and look at old livejournal entries like i can with xanga. why did i ever delete that shit? i guess it was eating up my life a bitty bit

speaking of xanga, i just did a vanity search in hopes of finding my xanga thru google. oh my god, i found something even more embarrassing instead

anyway i am sitting on floor one of the thomas cooper. it's the best place in to be in this library, five floors under the earth, in the back back corner, surrounded by books with chinese characters on the spines. as distanced as one can get from the world when in columbia

i'm making a playlist for tuesday's show. or, starting one. because that's more entertaining than working on solid state physics homework. the only song i've got picked out so far is by a band called Boyskout off an album i use really probably TOO often on the show called GIRL MONSTER, but it's an amazing album! seriously! three discs long and all really great grlrawk.

i will start posting playlists on here i guess, startin this tuesday. i just really love the fact that everyone at the station can post playlists on wusc's official website now. - just go to Schedule, and click on whatever show you're interested in looking at, and there should be more details about the show there! for BDP, i've got two playlists up so far. more to come. that, like i said, will also be here. i should use this thing for SOMETHIGN as long as i've got it.
