damn it's early [Apr. 6th, 2004|05:57 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Some Irish "afternoon" show asked if they could interview me. For some reason I agreed. Maybe because it's my people? :P

Except afternoon in Dublin is 6:00 am here. They just called 10 minutes ago asking if I was around... they're calling back in 5 minutes.

Understanding the guy's accent consumed more mental powers than I think I'm capable of at 6:00am.

Update: Ah, that was painless. They talk about four times slower on the radio than they do normally on the phone.

Heh, before me some emo-sounding guy named Eddy was talking about how he uses LiveJournal for anger management. They asked him if he uses it to talk about "girls he fancies" like in a typical "memory box" or diary but he said, "no, just the anger" but saying it totally calm and relaxed.

Most amusing. :-)

Station? Programme?

We need to know! Irish radio would have anyone convinced that we still live in thatched cottages.

Is there a recording somewhere we can listen to?

Along the same lines, I had a BBC radio interview a few years back. I'm all: "Interview?! sure!!", not thinking that they'll be calling me at 3am, and at which point, I can barely even understand what they are saying. Still fun. Wacky brits.

I've been lucky with respect to the location of my interviewers. They've always been in the states, so I only have to deal with, at most, a three hour time difference. Yaaaay.

Oh what was the name of the show if you don't mind me asking? Being from Ireland and all that... :)
