Inside The Blogger's Studio

Finally, the day has arrived. The day that two untold numbers of you have asked clamored for! Words Words Words is getting the 60 Minutes treatment! I was inspired to engage in such a blatantly ego-massaging endeavor by - who else? - the internet's most notorious narcissist, Dr. Zibbs. If he can do it, why not a blogger with 15 readers who needs to post pictures of cake to keep his audience? I begged considered several prominent bloggers for the gig, and the Chosen Three came through with quite interesting questions that prompted quite serviceable answers.

Head over to Gwen's blog Everything I Like Causes Cancer if you're interested in sex with prostitutes and WWW's gift-giving skills. Or if you just want to read the blog with the best title in all the blogodome.

Then sidle up to Kimizzy's candidly hilarious blog Splunkerdink to find out how Untitled Blogger Project started and what WWW likes in a woman!

Last but not least, don't change that channel...stay right here for an insightful conversation with Southern Belle of Southern Belle Lives. While the actual Southern Belle lives, sadly her blog does not. Consequently, I shall be hosting her interview myself. Read on...

Southern Belle: Who is the most famous person you've ever met?

WWW: Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was in a movie I worked on. He was aloof, but unfailingly polite and very professional.

Southern Belle: What would you like to be famous for (if anything)?

WWW: Generally I would not like to be famous - I would prefer my work to be famous but to remain fairly anonymous myself. That's why writing is so perfect for me. However, if you said that I have to be famous I'd choose to be a famous rock star. 20,000 people screaming your name and singing lyrics you wrote does not suck. Rock concerts are my favorite way to spend a night out, and to be someone like Mick Jagger or Bono would be BAD ASS.

Southern Belle: What is your favorite thing about yourself?

WWW: Resilience. There is an episode of "The Simpsons" where Homer discovers that he has an unusually thick brain membrane and can take more of a beating than a normal man. Consequently, he decides to becomes a professional boxer. Though he has no boxing skills, Homer can take a punch so well that his strategy is to win by attrition - he just waits for his opponent to get tired from throwing punches and then simply pushes him over. That reminds me of me.

Southern Belle: What is your least favorite thing?

WWW: My timidity. I'm not assertive sometimes when I could greatly improve my lot in life if I'd take a situation by the scruff of the neck. I don't have a problem being assertive in an area of my expertise, but otherwise it's a real problem.

Southern Belle: If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

WWW: Jack. I like it because it's a very masculine name and it's free of pretension. My real name sucks on both those counts.

Southern Belle: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live (and why)?

WWW: Vancouver, Canada. I spent five months there once for a job, and it was the best place I've ever visited. I think that's long enough for you to get a fair picture of a place. It's got everything you could want from a cosmopolitan city, and it also happens to be surrounded with mountains, water, and stunning natural beauty. Great food (especially Asian), a downtown where you can walk everywhere, a massive and beautiful public park, the best coffee I've had in my life, nice people, and a bunch of hockey freaks. I don't know how to explain it, but I just loved being there.

Southern Belle: Word association time.

Cookie = Chocolate chip

Nap = Boring

Horse = Sinewy

Bread = Sandwich

America = Flag

Alcohol = Whiskey

Thanks to Gwen, Kimizzy and Southern Belle for indulging my vanity. :) I'll be happy to return the favor anytime.

The Diva on a Diet said...

Well done, Jack! I enjoyed that and am off to read the others.

Soda and Candy said...

Great interviews!

I think the side effects of being famous kind of turn me off, but I'd take the money.

Some Guy said...

Nice! I'm off to read the other ones now.

Dr Zibbs said...

Notorious narcissist? Nice.

I think two "N's" would look cool on a t-shirt with a "Z" for Zibbs on the front.

Dr Zibbs said...

Wait. What do those two N words mean?

Something cool?

red said...

Wow. That was a lot of info about you. Zibbsy totally has a rival now.

Cora said...

You know, Words, I could see you as a Jack. Your real name just doesn't suit you at all! Before I knew your name, I definitely imagined you as a Greg or Mike or something like that.

Great interviews! :-)

Fancy Schmancy said...

I read all 3 and loved them. Give us more!

Girl Interrupted said...

Well ... first I was miffed that you didn't ask ME to interview you ... but then I saw what a fab job the other ladies did, so I'll stop sulking now :)

All my Q's would have been sex related anyway, so maybe it's for the best.

Ps: love the new profile pic! You look like a Roman emperor ...

The noble type ...

Not the completely barmy, likes to do weird things with his sister, makes his horse a General in his army and then plays the fiddle after he's set fire to stuff type.

words words words said...

Diva: Hey, this Jack thing might catch on!

Soda: Isn't that what the money is for?

Red: You are music to my ears.

Girl: You are right, these ladies did a bang-up job. When I do my "Words After Midnight" adults-only interviews, you will surely included. And thank you for saying I don't look like the type to bone my sister. That's the look I was going for.

Gwen said...

Hi, Jack!

(Good thing we're not on a plane.)

Anonymous said...

Those were some really good questions too! I love how we all came up with different stuff.

That's neat to hear Arnold is a nice guy; he seems that way.

Falwless said...

I actually learned shit I didn't know about you! And then some shit I did (poor taste in jokes).

P.S. Thanks for the shout out, babe!

Morgan the Muse said...

I do not think that was terribly vain...if you ever want to do another interview, I would try to think of some questions to ask.

Anonymous said...

And I totally missed the "I'll return the favor anytime!"

I'm all about mutual pleasure and receiving as well as giving, so just let me know when you're ready.

Oh and I'm down with you interviewing me too.

Hehe. Ooooh.
