Like everyone, I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that I never get around to doing. Sometimes out of laziness, sometimes because I can’t figure out how to make it work, and sometimes, it’s just because they’re pretty stupid ideas. If anyone wants to make these stupid ideas a reality, more power to you — maybe give a hat-tip to Kittysneezes, why don’t you?
Stupid Idea: An interview series called “Wasted Opportunities”. The idea would be to interview HUGE gets, big-name artists, like, say David Bowie or Paul McCartney — people who would actually be quite a bit of a coup — and ask them nothing but stupid, irrelevant questions.
Like, whether or not they liked to bike and how fast they could go on a bike. Or if they liked the color green. The idea wasn’t to do a Chris Farley Show type of bit — it’d be done as a straight, real interview, just with idiotic questions. They couldn’t be even remotely related — for example, anything about bikes would be right out if David Byrne were interviewed.
Why I Never Did It: I would still love to do this, but, well, you tell me how to contact someone like David Bowie, let alone get him to agree to being interviewed about bikes and colors.
