Here's the interview with me. I hope I'm not breaking any laws. I made it as a video, because I'm not tech savvy enough to do anything else. The bonus is the "interesting" visuals.
btw. It probably takes a millenia to load. Have fun.

DUDE!!!!!!! I think Jian has become your biggest fan. Seriously, he seemed quite taken with you and btw you guys were hilarious.

Great segment on the radio today. I liked how you freaked Jian out with the Jefferson Airplane song - so much more effective than the Smiths would have been.

Excellent job. You sounded very much like I thought you would - smart, hip, funny, and more than a little sassy.

Thanks Barbara!!!!!!!
I'm glad it was so funny, that kinda started when I began to refer to him as "old".

I loved his reaction to that song, it was awesome! And his statement about scaring your kids out of drugs. I threw the Smiths in there to poke fun at my arrogance, heehee.

I'm glad you think so, that's who I wanted it to sound. You should give Jian credit for being an awesome interviewer, and making it really easy for me to sound entertaining.

I'm commenting again :) I'm now making my office listen to the West coast feed ;)
My boss is a Ulysses fan too, plus I missed the first couple of mins this morning.

hilary m. said...

Aww, thanks Allison. I hope your office enjoys it!! I'm getting calls now every couple minutes from my mum's nice CBC-listening friends.

hilary m. said...

Thanks Barbara W.!

I hope they will, then perhaps the interview accomplished something. =)

A 14 Year old contributor? Sounds revolutionary. I just commented Barbara!

Ariel S. Hyre said...

Hilary, you are well on your way to becoming Canada's next big thing. In fact, you're already there. Can I have your autograph? =P

And where might I get that song? ; )

hilary m. said...

Haha. Thanks Ariel, but I'm more like Canada's Next Nerdy Fourteen Year Old To Read Ulysses and Tell Jian Ghomeshi About It. Heehee.


And the song (I'm assuming, Rejoyce) is off a Jefferson Airplane album called "After Bathing With Baxter's" which is also apparently Ulysses influenced. Jefferson Airplane aren't always over-the-top in their physchedelic-ness, and they have some pretty good 60's songs.

Ariel S. Hyre said...

Thanks! Sweet, an excuse to go on a music hunt!

Melissa said...

Haha you were so mean to Jian, but I totally agreed with his reaction to the Jefferson Airplane song =P

ps. HILARY HAS NO LIFEEEE (cause she's spending all her time reading Ulysses)

pps. when do I get my Geoooooorge poster?

hilary m. said...

I love music hunts!

Haha, I liked scaring him though, Melissa. And it was funny what he said about kids+drugs. =)

It's kinda true. I read 100 pages yesterday. That's like. 3 hours. But I really wanna get ahead of Jian.

Umm. Whenever you want? I have it here. It's just sitting, looking sad on my windowseat.

Barbara said...

My George poster got a bit crushed in my move. He is looking sad on a pile of stuff I have to put away.

hilary m. said...

That's too bad Barbara W. He kind of looks sad in the "One" poster anyways. He's kinda smirking, but he has a bit of a melancholy look in his eyes. Maybe he was being prophetic about the show's future.

I quickly watched/listened to the interview the other day but didn't have time to leave a proper comment, so here I am, with an evening's worth of free time.

It was really enjoyable! I was totally impressed how well you handled it all, I would have been such a wreck, and you took it all like a total pro! Not to mention, you totally burned Jian so perfectly, it was awesome. :) I'm so glad it turned out so well for you, and now you're famous!

hilary m. said...

Thanks for the comment Alana!

I'm so glad everyone thought I was good, I was actually super nervous. But in the end it was really fun to do. I still kinda feel bad for Jian. My song probably gave him nightmares, and I probably made him feel old.

Becky said...

Man, you and Barbara B on the radio, Barbara W meeting Jian in TO, I have some catching up to do :P
Ok, random Beckyness aside, that was awesome! You did a great job! See, if that was me, I'd been like "Ummm... hi... Jian..."

hilary m. said...

You're right Becky, there's been a lot of opportunities between all of us! Thanks. I thought when Jian introduced me, I'd say something stupid like "WOAH, I'M ON SOUNDS LIKE CANADA". Thankfully, I didn't.

Alana said...

Hilary, you made the Blog Tracker! :)

Thanks for letting me know Alana!
