Eric's House Of Ego
On the home page LJ has a "writer's block" thingy. I love todays.
"If one day you meet your favorite super star, what questions you would like to do to him/her?"
I give up... How do you 'do' a question?
How are your kids? How do you keep your life "normal" for them or do you even try? I like to think that my super star "heroes" are real, run of the mill people that happen to be rich and famous. If only I fell into that category.
How did you like growing up in the limelight? What would you have changed about your growing up years?
Read the question again ...
Is that what it really says in the writer's block? LOL I suppose I am with controuble
how do you DO a question?
I agree that "How do you 'do' a question?" is a valid question/criticism. And I suspect that Eric is seeing something that the rest of us don't see, and might not even be there. But even so: My favorite superstar is Paul McCartney, and I just want to have the general conversation about growing up as a left-handed bassist/guitarist, with little sidebars like: Have you ever tried to play a left-handed Fender Precision bass? With your stringed instrument playing as brilliant as it is, have you ever tried to play a left-handed drumset? (Paul plays drums right-handed, as does his fellow lefty Ringo Starr.) Have you ever had the itch to play in just a really, really ordinary weekend band, where your superstar status would have no connection whatever with the ordinary weekend crowd that showed up? And is there anybody you have always admired, but never had the chance to meet?
And I suspect that Eric is seeing something that the rest of us don't see, and might not even be there.
I just found the "do" to be funny ...
There is a friend of mine who is a producer in LA. We both used to post on a now mostly dead message board. I got an email from him some years ago apologizing for not being around, but he had, as he said, "been in the studio with Paul". Years later I he was still giddy about it.
They were working on the demos for the album that came out about 5 years ago (I think, my grip on time is a little sketchy) and he said that he had never worked with someone who worked so hard. Paul was in early every morning, drove himself, no entourage and worked everyone till they dropped. My friend loved it ... said that he could go ahead and quit now since it wasn't going to get any better than that.
I suspect you and I have dirty minds, if you're thinking the same thing I am. ;-)
My thought was ... it would not be in the form of a question ...
wait ... no ... I am SHOCKED ... SHOCKED I say to hear that you would think I have a dirty mind ... I washed it just last night ...
