  • Stupid Saturday Surveys: Joseph Kyle
    Saturday, February 24, 2007

    In the tradition of every cool little fanzine ever, I decided that, hey, why not have a little bit of fun? So I devised this fun little survey with silly questions, and thus the "Stupid Saturday Surveys" were born. I've got some fun ones lined up, but hey, let's start with me, shall we? We shall!

    1. What was your first taste of Rock and Roll?

    Hmm, I'd probably have to say it was Blondie. My childhood was spent in the 1970s, but Blondie was a pop/rock crossover that really appealed to me. Plus, she was old enough to be my mom. Maybe there's some sort of Freudian thing at play there?

    What was the last song you downloaded?

    Not a song, but I downloaded the second installment of the Earlies' Secret Broadcast series.

    Ever courted someone via mixtape? Did it work? Is there one song that you'd always include for wooing purposes?

    Oh, of course. Did it work? I'm single right now. Do you think it worked? As far as songs, one or two would always make it on the first initial "I like you" tape. Guns 'N Roses' "Think About You" was one. Another was True Love Always' "Secret Static." That's such a great song! I wish I could find that True Love Always album. I'd also usually include something sweet like Heavenly's "C Is The Heavenly Option," too. If I were really into her, and I felt confident of feelings, I'd include Tripping Daisy's "Sonic Bloom." It's such a beautiful song.

    What's your favorite Will Oldham song, and why?

    Right now, it's "Untitled" from the Hope EP. It's the one about making a cake. Because I'm making a cake today, and it gets me in the mood. Plus, it's sort of a bizarro-world version of "Macarthur Park"

    What song do you really want to cover next?

    I have no musical talent. But if I did, I'd probably cover something nice! I'd probably cover that True Love Always song.

    Last book you read?

    I read a lot of books--after all, that's my thing! But the one I'm currently working on is The End of Racism by Dinesh D'Souza. It's very interesting; it's very enlightening, and it's really, really deep.

    How do you like your eggs?

    With cheese, white pepper, a touch of cayenne, a hint of onion, and corn tortillas.

    Socks--cotton or silk?

    Silk, baby.

    The one TV show you can't miss?

    Though I'm really not into the Idiot Box, I can't resist the campy charm of Ugly Betty. I think it has something to do with being an impressionable youth and discovering the scandalous photos of Miss Vanessa Williams.

    Favorite quote?

    "If someone shows you who they really are, believe them." -- Maya Angelou

    Who's the one person you'd love to have brunch with, and what would you talk about?

    I'd love to have brunch with beautiful, intelligent, funny woman who's totally cool and is willing to talk about anything. Yes, I'm desperate, but not serious.

    What's currently in your fridge?

    Food. Stuff to make pizza. Orange juice. Bacon. Chicken.

    You have the floor--is there anything you want to say?
