Mike hooked me up and Bobbi showed up, and we had a conversation about San Jose (where she’s from), her almost-better-equipped-than-a-boyfriend-car (a Mini Cooper), the musical extension of her body (the oboe), and licking a toilet seat. Awesome!
Bobbi is funny and smart and self-possessed and cute, cute, cute! She reminds me of Ali McGraw – natural, carefree and quite beautiful. She brought a friend who, upon introduction, produced a red velvet cupcake that I saved until after the interview. It was delicious. Thank you, _____! ?
The whole experience was charming and I hope they departed feeling the same way.I attached the mic, but it wasn’t set up properly, so adjust the audio accordingly. I apologize, but all-in-all, it wasn’t bad for a very first interview. The audio is there, even if it’s just not great. I am calling it On The Couch with Lydia Lee, because I don’t want my performer name highlighted in interviews. It’s about the model I’m talking to, not me. Also, I don’t perform so it just makes sense to separate those identities. It felt right, which is the best reason I have for many of the things I do.
I need some practice doing this, since I do set everything up, conduct the interview and edit it, but I think it is quite good. Let me know what you think, please.There are six parts to this, and while I didn’t want to take up Mike’s entire blog page with the embedded videos, there seems no other way than linking to YouTube, and it’s easier to click a button and start playing. Soooo, here goes!
