This afternoon I got a text from a close friend and up and coming blogger Jake Espi, more commonly known as The Kid Espi. He asked if I was free at 7 p.m. and if I would be willing to host a “Twitterview,” an interview via Twitter, for his online magazine and blog, We Out Here. We texted back and forth with details, before I was forwarded three emails with login passwords and potential interview questions.

I was given twenty questions and one hour with Portland-based DJ, DJ Fatboy. I ended up selecting my favorite questions from the list and jumped around, asking them in the most timely order.

Hi, I'm DJ Fatboy.

Sure, I asked questions about his career as a DJ for the past eleven years, but I also picked his brain about his personal life. I found out that the “tough guy” DJ loves Arizona watermelon-flavored iced tea and Raphael the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Needless to say, the interview was well-rounded and a success.

At the end of the hour, We Out Here was so impressed with my take on the interview and spunkily-phrased questions that they asked me to return next Sunday to host a second artist interview and also noted that a more permanent guest-interviewer position could possibly be arranged! Given my fervor for PR-music fusion, this freelance gig could be the perfect resume experience I didn’t even know I was looking for!

The complete interview can be traced on We Out Here‘s and DJ Fatboy‘s Twitter accounts and will be made available soon at weouthere.net.

UPDATE: Read the interview here.

UPDATE: On 5/22 I hosted my second Twitterview, with internationally known street basketball player Grayon “The Professor” Boucher. You can read that interview here.
