SXSW 07 Film: David Boreanaz Interview

Boreanaz-Small.jpgSo here I go! This is my first podcast, so forgive me if it’s rough. In fact, I know it’s rough. There are some (large) skips in the recording (still don’t know how they got there). For example, at about the 3:10 mark, we start to talk about this nice little Canadian film he did called These Girls. Not only that, there’s a LOT of background noise. Not only that, it’s the first interview I’ve done in, well, a long time and besides, I am a huge Buffy geek, so I was a wee bit nervous.
Also, Firefox for the Mac doesn’t support one of the tags my host uses, but they’re promising me a fix, soon.
I promise, I’ll get better.
David and I chat about the film he was at SXSW with, the world premiere of Alan Cumming’s solo directorial debut Suffering Man’s Charity, his previous indie film work, whether he’s interested in directing episodes of his hit Fox TV series Bones and yes, a little bit about Angel!
The podcast can be found on iTunes. Just search for The Rabbi Report. More coming, soon!

SXSW 07 Music: Lily Allen to NME: “Cunts!”

One of the highlights for me this year was catching Lily Allen’s set at Stubb’s. She walked on with a ciggy in one hand and a (non-SXSW sponsor) Bud in the other. Apparently she’d been in her bus having a few beers because, well, she told us. “I’m a little bit drunk.” Well duh. After all, it was SXSW and I mean, I was pretty much assholed on tall boy Lone Stars m’self!
She started the evening off by pretty much telling showcase sponsor NME to go fuck itself. I’m not sure fothe history of this, but she really really doesn’t like the NME (“Fuck off you cunts”) or their editor apparently, who she referred to as having the smallest penis in the world. In the following clip, if you listen very closely, you can hear more of Lily’s thoughts about NME. I believe the phrase “spineless cunts” is in there, somewhere.
FYI, You Tube cut off the end of the clip where she says: “It’s my little baby brother and his name is Alfie.”
