    CNN Interview Onbroad

    by viathyn » Wed Jan 11, 2012 11:28 am

    Hey, I'm not sure if this has been posted recently or not, it's a little hard to keep up with the forums lately.

    I got contacted by Allison the other day about being interviewed onbroad by someone from CNN who would ask me a few questions, maybe follow me to a show or something like that. She mentioned about it being aimed at returning customers. Anyone else receive that call?




    Also, we briefly chatted about the broading passes and such and the reasons for delay. Everyone needs to remember that this involves third parties and relies on correspondence between UMC and Royal Caribbean. They're working really hard to get everything to us on time, and would have things expedited if they could. I can't speak about the general lack of information, but I do know they are working hard to keep us all satisfied!

    Check the FYI thread. Samhain even did some research on the CNN guy! I did not get contacted for the interview though. Guess UMC does read my posts :cry:

    Ah, yes. Just did my homework! Thanks for the push in the right direction.


    Anyways, as long as this isn't too invasive and doesn't interfere with anything, I don't see a real reason not to do it. It's all about conducting oneself in a professional manner..

    Someone at UMC told me the guy has all the scheduled interview spots filled. That doesn't mean if you see him walking around, he won't talk to you. I'm sure there will be some impromptu interviews if you so desire. Just don't be this retard:

    I was contacted too. I would do it except I keep thinking about my grad school applications and the potential for looking like an idiot on camera :?
    Its probably best to stay on the safe side and not do it. No big deal.

    To me, it makes absolute sense for Jake (Sinister Realm? Entrails? HorrorCult?) to talk to these people. Pimp his band, get exposure. The rest of it... :roll:

    In no way, shape or form am I being sarcastic. Bands HAVE to use this opportunity. It's free advertising. It's an amazing opportunity. No such thing as bad advertising.

    Rhia, I think this would include you.

    As for the people that just want to be on tv... :roll:

    I'll definitely be putting a plug in, probably giving away one of the cds to Percy. I'm planning on giving him some honest answers to his questions though; I'd like to contribute towards his final product, which I'm assuming is some sort of painted understanding of why people enjoy and shell out a bunch of money for this type of thing.

    I'm pretty sure most of us were taking the piss about the interview.I personally hate all that crap.
    Although it might work in the favour of smaller bands in your own country if you do get interviewed and mention their names if you are not in a band yourself.

    No. Didn't mean that. Just that you (and other bands) HAVE to take an opportunity to expose your music to people. (This alone could put you into (name your own) festival next year.) And I think the way you're thinking about it will make people seek you out. Free Advertising. On a pretty major (sadly) network.

    Again, why it's important for bands, and not us "customers". It's the bands that usually put a better spin on things, rather than the drunk guy who doesn't give a fuck. I too like to fuck with tv, and their perception.

    I hate this aspect of music, but it's a reality. And I'd rather see someone I respect taking advantage of it, than some fucko from Blackguard.Sorry, easy joke.

I'm planning on giving him some honest answers to his questions though; I'd like to contribute towards his final product, which I'm assuming is some sort of painted understanding of why people enjoy and shell out a bunch of money for this type of thing.

    Yeah, I would hope that people taking part in this do a good job with it. As Dan mentioned, CNN is (sadly) a very big network and it's a great chance to give a big fuck you to certain stereotypes/prejudices about metalheads in the process.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Although it might work in the favour of smaller bands in your own country if you do get interviewed and mention their names if you are not in a band yourself.

    Again, why it's important for bands, and not us "customers". It's the bands that usually put a better spin on things, rather than the drunk guy who doesn't give a fuck. I too like to fuck with tv, and their perception.

    I hate this aspect of music, but it's a reality. And I'd rather see someone I respect taking advantage of it, than some fucko from Blackguard.Sorry, easy joke.

    I fucked around with a reporter from some Bulgarian reporter when they tried to interview me at a festival there.Needless to say they muted everything i said when they broadcast it on tv :lol:
