I don't know if I myself have any particular flair for interview questions, but I have noticed a change in some publications. For example, when I was in junior high and high school, US Weekly was known as US. Back then they were a monthly publication, and each month they had what they coined "The US Interview" in which they usually asked the most marvelous questions that really seemed to hit upon the true heart and personality of the person they were interviewing. I savored reading those interviews -- I always felt like I walked away knowing something much more interesting, in-depth and personal about the 'subject,' whether it was an author, actor, musician, politician, or whoever. It wasn't a cheesy, pop/puff piece about who was dating whom, or how much money they made at the box office. It focused on illuminating the person and the work they did. I really appreciated that. I miss it. Now when I walk by the magazine racks at the grocery store and see the tabloid crap that 'fills' its pages, I cringe and feel incredibly sad, knowing what that magazine used to be. It's surprisingly disappointing.
I so agree! I've been entertained by reading everyone's thoughtful questions; each person who contributed came up with something unusual or fun or curious. I'm really looking forward to reading how TJ responded to them.ThyneAlone wrote:PS Which does not mean that everyone else's aren't great too.
Thank you, Ben and the M Team, for working so hard to get this interview together for us to enjoy!
