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?
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*
