Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond
When Suzi wrote up her 5th piece for us – we knew that it was long over due to formally introduce her. So we sent some questions along, and in-between she wrapped up her 6th piece.
It’s been a pleasure to have her on board as a writer and an even greater pleasure to call her a friend.
What types of entertainment are you most drawn to?
I would say that I am mainly drawn to live music more than anything – or any type of live entertainment; plays, comedians, etc…..
I love big shows, but I am really a fan of smaller venues, where you can really connect with the performers. I love being able to watch the performance, when I can really see them up close.
What is the first song that you remember being crazy over?
The first song? That is a hard one. Honestly, Dr. Feelgood by Motley Crue comes to mind. My sister was 6 1/2 years older than me, so I grew up listening to 80’s hair bands. Her and I were both always getting in trouble for blasting it while doing our Saturday chores. ( I wouldn’t play it on my own, but if it happened to come on the radio, I would rock it!)
If you could interview any one living person within the entertainment industries – who would it be?
Wow…. what a tough one. I think I might have to go with Joss Whedon on this one. Although, at this point, I would have no idea what to ask him! I would have to start to come up with an amazing questionnaire months ahead of time.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The first one I went to, was Jewel & Rusted Root, it was only because while I was working at a bar & grill the tickets were left as a tip. Hey it was free, so why not!
However, my first real show that I was super excited about, was Type O Negative/Coal Chamber! Again, I didn’t purchase those tickets either, I won them. However, I was stoked, as Coal Chamber was one of my “at the moment” favorite bands. …and well, I don’t think Type O needs explaining.
Now, if you want to know what my first concert was, that I actually purchased tickets…. well that was Static X and Power Man 5000! This was also my first GA purchase, and I was right in the pit. I guess if you’re going to do a concert, do it right the first time. By then, I was more educated on which type of shows I would rather see from a seating area vs. the pit.
If you had to give up all forms of media with one exception – which one would you keep? No loopholes or cheat answers!
I may not be too clear on this question…… if I could only keep one type of media, it would be YouTube? Is that a choice, because then I would get to see a little bit of all genres of entertainment then. 😉 Other than that, I would say, Vinyl? I would keep the classics going, as well as the music that has been released on vinyl throughout the years.
Youtube completely counts as a cheat answer Suzi – but a damned good one. Read all of Suzi’s pieces here.
