    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.

      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!

      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.
