Almost Famous

So a few weeks ago I received an email requesting an interview for The Blog Reader. Yes, you read that right. Someone actually wanted an interview. With me. To talk about blogging. Fuck, the world is a wonderful place. Of course I happily agreed, and two days later young Justin called me at the designated time to talk about ME.

Poor guy didn't know what he was in for. We wound up talking on the phone for well over an hour, and I was able to learn quite a bit about my new friend. Of course he didn't mention in his (well-written) article my amazing ability to get people to talk about themselves while elusively avoiding any personal questions about myself. In fact, he didn't even mention the laughter, the tears, the bonding! Harumph! Actually, I'm impressed he was able to cull anything at all out of my incessant rambling. In short, I'm a lousy interview. But a fabulous conversationalist!

Anyway, here it is: My Interview. Please click and read. And comment. Show Justin some love. Thank you.

P. S. I have no recollection of ever uttering the name Murgatroid.

i thought your name WAS murgatroid and that brooke was the nom de plume.

clearly i love you anyway.

Captain Beefheart said...

Celebrity blogstar!

Museltov!

Egan said...

Your fans adore you alright. It makes it sound a bit cultish if you ask me. Is blogging a cult? Heck, it's a warm fuzzy one I guess like a cuddle party. Have a good weekend Murgatron.

Brookelina said...

You guys rock. Don't forget to comment over there! Otherwise I look like a big dorky loser.

Tits McGee said...

Hooray!!!

Congratulations, Brooke! We love you!

darth said...

don't forget us, brooke :((

ChickyBabe said...

Well done Brooke! :)

I can understand the anonymity that relates to your work; I think you maintain a great balance here.

Knitty Kitty said...

i'm glad we are your "fans"!

I will run over and comment right now.

Bill said...

I so wish I had done the interview instead of Justin (no disrespect Justin!). For example, I would have delved deeply into your Bruce Springsteen thing. "So what's that about, Brooke? Hmm? Hmmm!!!???"

Of course, I wouldn't have been able to do an interview, even had the opportunity arisen. I , too, redirect conversations. For example, "This New Jersey-Florida thing you have ... it so much puts me in mind of those John Ford movies that I love so much but which disturb me - why are the westerns so good but the World War II ones suck ass ... I'm sorry, did I get off topic?"

Like that. Anyway, you look quite fetching in the tattoo boy photo.

Yes, I will comment over there. Can't have you looking dorky. :-)

WhiteBoyBob said...

Finally! Getting the recognition you deserve.

Nick said...

It's well deserved.

babyjewels said...

Dan said...

Clever way to get a phone number...

Cactus Prick said...

Do'nt let the publicity change your'e rockin fabulousitude virgoaciousness.

Cactus Prick said...

P.S. I tried to think of more apostrophes to massacre, but it's just not easy.

Toby said...

I didn't read an hour long interview, but I always knew you were hot and had lots of tattoos.

Brookelina said...

Kendra - I love that you love me and my dorky name.

Beefy - L'chaim!!

Egan - oh we are all so brainwashed.

Brooke - you are a big dorky loser, and don't you forget it.

Tits - I can feel the love!!

Darth - you mean tomorrow when I'm hungover? Never!

Chicky - I honestly wish I had gone completely anonymous like you. You are a wise woman indeed.

Knitty - I'm your fan too! Yay for Knitty!

Bill - dude, I'm from Jersey. The Springsteen thing is self-explanatory.

WBB - if that's true, then the whole world is going to know what a dork I am.

Nick - you're awesomosity is showing.

BabyJ - I pale in comparison to your uber coolness.

Ubie - want my autograph?

Dan - too bad my interviewer was half my age...

Prick - you're adorable. Someday we are going to have sex.

Toby - he skipped all the good parts. And it's only one tattoo, thank you very much!

minijonb said...

I think I read on Andy Warhol's blog that in the blogosphere, our avatars will be famous for 15 seconds... oh, wait, I didn't read that... someone else did. This has been such a confusing day. =;-)

Congrats.

Kris said...

Mother of God, you are effing A-LIST!

Now don't let fame make you bow out early like David Caruso did. That didn't go well for him.

justingerald said...

You most certainly said "Murgatroid." Why you said that, I haven't a clue. But you said it. I'm just saying...

Mone said...

Brooke, I knew rigth from the beginning that you are a VIP =)

yournamehere said...

I've told you for months that you're a celebrity. You deserve it.

Erin O'Brien said...

Hi Brooke.

I left a comment over there, although, as usual, it is weird.

I am weird.

Very nice promo for you and your blog, though.

Congrats!

Brookelina said...

Mini - no worries, I live in a state of perpetual confusion.

Kris - this from the girl who's on the Blogebrity B-List - where I am nowhere to be found!

Justin - over an hour on the phone and you pull out Murgatroid? You didn't even mention my sexy voice or dazzling personality. I'm wounded. Call me.

Mone - I wonder if I'll be able to get tables at fancy restaurants now.

Todd - no way. You are so much more of a rock star than I am.

Erin - I love you and every weird bone in your body.

Übermilf said...

I'm not complaining, but how come Brooke gets interviews and accolades while I get psychotic teenagers IMming me and angry David Soul fans calling for my lynching?

Loz said...

Now I can say things like "I knew Brooke way back when she first started blogging..."

Can't think of a more deserving blogger for this honour (no offence, losers).

Nick said...

Because fate loves a good joke, Ubie.

Genital Resident is Brooke's new nickname.

matty said...

This is so cool!!!!! Congrats! Most impressive -- you're a superstar, baby!

Rrramone said...

How cool is it that we are both on there at the same time?? Great interview chick!

sleepydog said...

As usual, I'm Johnny come lately here, sheesh, I've gotta get my act together.

Just don't forget about all of us little people now that you're all famous an' shit.

And by little, I don't mean small. I mean lesser in stature fame-wise.

Heavens to Murgatroid indeed.

jiggs said...

yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're so famous!

Tim said...

apostrophes are my mortal enemy! Try having one in your name. It blows.
