A short interview

As interviews are all the rage on biblioblogdom at the moment, I thought I’d perform a short interview with Simon Hardwick of ‘thelostmessage’ for Chrisendom today. I think this especially appropriate in light of this post recently (he called me ‘a pluralistic, relativistic butt muncher feasting on the postmodern swill of Derrida’ if you remember. Revenge is sweet.).

Chris: Thanks for agreeing for an interview, Simon. Tell me, what got you blogging?

Si: You, mate! You and your totally brilliant blog which is the best in the world and MUCH better than mine.

Chris: Well thank you! I notice from your blog that you are very sympathetic with the ‘emerging conversation’. To simply take the devil’s advocate position for a moment, perhaps you could give me one good reason why I shouldn’t dismiss the whole thing as the pointless banter of folk drunk on the wine of compromise and the fear of man?

Si: [Answer has been lightly edited for grammatical reasons] Well, Chris, that is [not] a stupid arse question ... and ... I ... cannot ... answer ... for the life of me ... no.

Chris: OK, fair enough. So, Si, tell me about your life. You are a popular chap, tell me how many friends do you have?

Si: Errr.

Chris: No need for details, just how many?

Si: Er, well. Interesting question. I wonder, can we talk about something else if this is going on your blog?

Chris: Oh come on, Si! I just want to know how many friends you have. Just a number!

Si: Do work associates count?

Chris: How many?

Si: *Hangs up the phone*

Hey there,

I'm kinda new to this blog stuff and I could do with some publicity. Why not interview me?

I sense that Simon is still trapped in the gall of bitterness.


David, I would be careful what you ask for.

By the way, I just visited your website and I have a question.
Do you always sit around wearing nothing but a T-shirt?

Regards,
John

Anon,

That's not me, silly, it's my pet monkey.

Sorry about that David, my mistake.

Good luck with the blog. I'll be tuning in.

Regards,
John

Right Tilling!

I have written a brief expose of Chris here called:

Chris Tilling: The SHOCKING Truth

Since Chris has posted an “interview” with me (even though I saw no questions nor gave any answers!) I thought I’d write a brief expose of this up-and-coming scholar residing in Tubingen. I have known Chris for over 15 years. I know his long dark history. I was there when he was at school! I know the cess pit from which he has come and the true twisted motivations of his life....

Enjoy!

Hi John. Yep. Only a T-SHirt. NOTHING else. ;-)

Simon. Death.

Thank you very much Chris. I'm sure that if you interviewed me, it would do a lot of good for your blog's profile. I'm already getting loads of hits. The Sky's the Limit!

Talking about the Emerging Church, I've just done a post on the subject on my blog.
