Last week I started my xangans on film interview series with Mrsprosa (for anyone who missed it check here). This week I bring you a very prominent member of our xanga community. Creator of the BFN Network and editor of the Autisable website, Edlives.
Note: Once again, for those who cannot access video for whatever reason, I have once again taken the liberty of providing a summarized chat trancript below.
Picking The Fried Brain of Edlives
Dave: I’m here with edlives, a.k.a. Joel. Sup man.
Joel: Aww man, busy week here. I’m pretty nervous right now.
Dave: You should be nervous. I am an incredibly intimidating man.
Joel: That you are Dave. Please be gentle.
Dave: Okay. I’ll be gentle.
Dave: How are you affiliated with xanga and the xanga team.
Joel: I’m not. The BFN is a separate entity and I am only the editor of Autisable. Stop sending me bug issues damnit!
Dave: Yeah. I bet that can get pretty annoying.
Dave: You are a 49ers fan correct?
Joel: Since the early 80’s.
Dave: They suck pretty bad don’t they?
Dave: Which “real celebrities” would you like to see on xanga?
Joel: I’ll take anything I can get. Beggers can’t be choosers.
Lightning round – Joel does not like pink, but does enjoy some Bugs Bunny,
Word Association – Joel kisses various xangan’s asses.
Dave: Last question. What makes you so passionate about spreading autism awareness.
Joel: My son. He is my heart. We have had our share of troubles with schools and the government and I would like to spread awareness to help others deal with these problems. Autisable allows me to do this and xanga even gives a portion of the revenue from that site to helo with autism research.
Dave: That is awesome. I am going to end on that and a cute cut to your kid.
Joel: Alright dude thanks.
Dave: Peace out.
