popbytes interviewed by nathan

oh i always love letting out little tidbits out about me – and one of my new cool blog friends nathan over at nathan exposed has this nifty little interview game where he asks me five questions and then i offer to interview any other blogger that wants to participate (details below) – so let’s get on with this…

1 – How did you get started with your idea for the popbytes website?

so really it was just on a whim (and a little wine) – and wanted a nice piece for my design portfolio (to help get a full-time job) – and i was always ‘talking’ about this stuff anyways so why not ‘log’ it – and now it’s been over 2 years – and really i had no clue it would ever be like it is today (and still growing!) – a lot of work to keep it up (gosh i get such performance anxiety sometimes) – but popbytes is well worth it – i love blogging! people that know me probably get sick of me talking about my blog – but really it’s a one-man show – and a huge labor of love! so keep coming back and enjoy! more new stuff including some slight re-designing is in the works! i got plans people!

2 – What is the strangest celebrity encounter you’ve ever had?

well i guess that would have to be björk back in NYC – i was walking down west broadway in soho – and it was a weekday so less crowded – and raining a bit – walking with my pal CK – i spotted björk just strolling down the street – i passed her and then realized this was a big chance – so i ran back – pardoned myself – and just told her ‘thank you – i love your music’ and she was so gorgeous and gracious – she is such an interesting lady – so for me – it was a big coup to be face to face with her – and just tell her what i honestly felt! ok maybe not the strangest encounter – but maybe one with the strangest celebrity…

3 – If you could be a famous diva for a day, who would you be?

hands down – i would love to be courtney love when she was bit less messy – her whole hollywood glam stage would be just fine – i so love and appreciate the whole rock & roll spirit – and naysayers may say ms. love is hardly rock & roll – but to me she epitomizes that fuck you ‘rock with your tits and cock out’ spirit that i just love – the girl just doesn’t give a fuck…and she has made some great music – i would just love to rock out one time on stage – even thought i can’t sing for shit – popbytes is tone deaf!

4 – What is the best Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?

i think i must talk about the worst halloween costume i ever wore – poison ivy – don’t ask me why i did this – but i did – it was crazy – and so uncomfortable – and the party theme was ’80’s metal rock’ – i figured no one would do that – but alas i was wrong – everyone went metal and there i be in a green body suit – red wig – and black high heels which i left on the streets of NYC that night – those were some fun times back with my gals steph and gillian (and ms. marti was there too!) – a strong second worst costume were these grim reaper purple outfits that really in the end looked like grimace – me and 3 other friends wore – trust you me those costumes were abandoned that night too…

5 – Tell us something juicey nobody knows about you.

hmmmm – i’m not a registered democrat – i prefer to be independent especially in the shit world of politics – and i have a very unusual piercing – on the nape of my neck! i have had it over 6 years now – and it does often garner lots of looks and attention – my mom sure loves it! (joking) – ok that’s not too juicey but enough for now…

gosh that was refreshing and fun for me to write – so if you want to play along – follow the guidelines below – popbytes out for now – and hugs & kisses to mr. nathan for interviewing me! xxoo
