As updater of the KZSC blog, I have decided it’s time for another DJ interview. Caitlin will be blogging on this in the very near future, so I figured it was important to let you all get to know her!
Blog: Hi Caitlin!
Caitlin: Hi Scott!
B: Should we do this conversation on the internet? Is that weird?
C: I don’t know, it could be fun. Adventurous.
B: What’s the best adventure you’ve been on lately? Besides the KZSC blog, naturally.
C: I don’t want to sayanything real, because it’ll sound stupid. Oh! I know something exciting that happened. So, I came home yesterday, and I went into the bathroom, you know, ’cause I had to pee. When I sat down, a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of Champagne popped out from the shower curtain along with a loud “SURPRISE!” . It was my best friend who had traveled on a bus for hours to come surprise me!
B: That’s not so adventurous – but it was pretty heartwarming.
C: I also looked up Cryogenics on Wikipedia. That was pretty adventurous.
B: So if you could be frozen now, which five songs would you be want to frozen with? Any five.
C: Okay. Okay. Let’s start with something funny, that you’d want to live the rest of your life with.
B: “Alive”, by P.O.D.?
C: No. It’s that Salt-n-Pepa song. Any of theirs I’d be happy with. This is really hard! Definitely a song by Animal Collective, probably “Winter’s Love” or something like that.
B: That’s a good one!
C: The Dirty Projectors song about being Naked. “Naked We Made It”. A Neutral Milk Hotel song. I want a Mountain Goats song too. Man, this is going to be a really boring eternal adventure in ice! We should make this a dance party in ice. Shit, except you can’t move when you’re in ice. You probably want to be bored when you’re in ice, because your heart rate is going to be slowed down – I mean stopped. Okay, I’m on the right track. “No Children” by the Mountain Goats.
B: That’s a good one! That song is really sad.
C: This is a really good theme for a mixtape! That song is really good! Can I have a new question?
C: What should it be?
B: What do you plan to do with the KZSC blog in your own two hands?
C: Control the musical universe.
Kelly: What’s the first CD you ever bought?
B: Kelly? What are you doing here?
K: Asking questions.
C: I’m embarrassed. The Titanic soundtrack.
K: And what’s the first CD you ever bought when you realized you had good taste?
C: It all kind of happened in one big flurry, but I remember when Graceland became my favorite album, before I got into music heavily. But it was really Broken Social Scene’s You Forgot it in People that really stuck with me and got me into music. It kept me satisfied for a long time.
(this is Caitlin’s favorite version of the album cover. She said “I was really into deconstruction at the time. And cardboard.”)
B: What do you think about all the bands that sound like the Jesus and Mary Chain?
C: They’re great. A lot of times, when I see something that says it’s reminiscent of them, it’s awesome. Sometimes it’s terrible, but you know, that’s what happens when you sound like another band.
B: I want to go home.
C: You can’t go home! We’re doing an interview!
B: Can we end it?
C: If you buy me a candy bar?
B: What kind?
(I did not buy Caitlin a Butterfinger)
