Off the cutting room floor

Stuart Davis and Will Bueche discuss aliens

I was so satisfied with my interview on “Sex God Rock ‘n’ Roll with Stuart Davis” this past December that I declared it to be my last interview ever. (It actually appears only on the extended version of the episode, not the version that aired on HDNet). Stuart Davis was a great interviewer, and I was natural and comfortable in my answers (despite my neck muscles having locked tight the moment it started), there was a live audience providing instant feedback, and the editing was suberb. It was the best interview I’d ever done, of the 3 or 4 I’ve done, and so it was the perfect note to go out on. It can be seen online with a 2nd-level membership to www.sexgodrocknroll.com (the “God” level that provides the “Extended” versions of the episodes).

…But I’ve just learned that an old interview I did elsewhere, which was originally left on a cutting room floor, has been revived. Back in September 2006, I was one of many people interviewed by Canadian David Cherniak as he drove around the United States in an RV, asking people their opinions.

I hadn’t done an interview in years at that point, and as I wrote at the time, “I didn’t have much passion to speak about any of this, my edge being a bit dull after these past couple of years of not working in this area… also, I was having a bad hair day.”

So just when I thought a perfect interview had been my last note on the subject, I’m afraid that a pretty shoddy interview (on my part) will be adding some discordant notes. I was over-rehearsed and I under-performed for the Cherniak interview (“UFOs: Addendum 1 – Abductions”). I recall it was recorded in stop-start fashion as I called for time-outs. It was not my best. That said, I haven’t yet seen how they managed to edit it, so maybe it’s ok.

But I want to restate, I remain retired from doing interviews. I am checking now on how one can find the Stuart Davis interview and be left with butterflies and pretty daisies in one’s eyes and ears. I know it can be seen if one becomes a 2nd-level member at www.sexgodrocknroll.com (the “God” level with the “Extended” versions of the episodes), and I am checking now to see if the interview appears on the bonus disc of the season set DVDs. UPDATE: It does. I haven’t yet seen it to see if it exactly the same as the “God” level content; they may have trimmed it a bit more, but, it is there in some fashion.

In contrast to the Stuart Davis show, I don’t expect anyone to rush out and buy the Cherniak documentary, as it was not designed for general audiences. But I felt like venting my belief that my performance on the Cherniak documentary was poor.

Five & a Half

Posted in Dream by Will on Sunday, July 26th, 2009 ~ 11am

I dreamed a company that ran a series of shopping-mall-based time travel locations called “Five & a Half” had screwed up the timeline, with 1992 appearing more futuristic than 2009 due to bleed-back of modern technology.

Newspapers, for example, were the shape of a folded paper but with e-ink so that the whole of the contents could be moved across the pages. (Why folded? Party to make it like a newspaper that could be held traditionally, and mostly because the panel to the left was always advertising and the panel to the right was free — and holding the paper served to make the paper like a billboard being displayed by the reader.) Television was 3D. And the company had put its “Five & a Half” stores into malls retroactively. And there were Terminator: Salvation-like robot squids used for security.

No one noticed the differences of course.

Chris Reccardi painting "Spring Showers on Euclid 12"

OMG! Some fool is selling 2 original Chris Reccardi paintings, including “Spring Showers on Euclid 12”! If I had $1,805 in my wallet I’d snatch that up immediately! It appears to currently be located in the UK. I sent the seller a msg telling him he was crazy to sell it. (He seems to have withdrawn the listing now.)
