Just a quick post today because I shall be finishing 1984 very very soon and am eager to get back to it so I can give my thoughts, of which there are many, not all of which useful or relevant but nonetheless.
You may’ve heard of a band called ‘Chameleon Circuit’ and, for any Who fan who just noticed the reference, yes they do songs about Doctor Who in a genre apparentely entirely filled by them called Time Lord Rock (‘Trock’). Video Below:
The three of them I’ve been able to find on YouTube, one of which I’ve been aware of for months mainly becuase of his odd resemblence to David Tennant, all do regular videos, the latest ones of which have been talking about how they’re gradually becoming more and more known on the interwebs, such as their album on iTunes (which I highly recommend), videos and twitterings. This gave me an idea and I have sent messages on YouTube to the three of them I can find (there’s one more but because there’s no listed information on them, like on Wikipedia, I can’t find him on youtube though I know his name is Chris) asking if they’d like to take part in an interview for this selfsame blog. I haven’t lied to them or given them any sort of idea that this blog is particularly well known or successful and, if I’m totally honest, getting an interview with them just before they (as I reakon they will) hit the big time will help me get traffic on here, which is why I’m eager to do it now before they’ll charge me for it with their flashy agents. This is something that I haven’t explicitly said to them in the YouTube message but I’m not trying to hide that fact from them, especially considering I included the URL of this blog in the messages so they might end up reading this and seeing it.
So yeah, this is something that may or may not materialise (like the TARDIS……..awesome) sooner or later, but I imagine that they won’t have time or the energy or already have flashy agents who will want me to pay through the nose for the interview. Still, doesn’t hurt to try.
