    Thanks. Very nice interview!

  • Poison Ivy says:

    Guys, another interview with another artist is in the works! I don’t want to say too much about it but I’m pretty sure it will be awesome.

    • rapt says:

      You’re not the only one who anticipates awesomeness! I just read the Altinoglu interview, and I think you did a great job putting him at his ease and getting soem substantive responses out of him. Thanks!

    • Rory Williams says:

      Hooray! Can’t wait. (going off to speculate about WHO). Best, Rory

    Thanks so much, Ivy. Delightful interview, delightful man. I will be paying attention to what he does in the future! I was rather shocked last night by the people in the orchestra stalls who stood up and left almost before the curtain came down--and it did seem to be stuck! It’s not as if it was midnight! But wonderful standing ovation too and I hope all the artists could feel the love.
