Cohn Powell dead: Random student exclusive

The Mic

Saturday

By Jason Posick
Daily Arts Writer

The Michigan Daily: Hi, is Rachel
there?
Random: This is Rachel.
TMD: Hi, I'm calling from The
Michigan Daily to interview a ran-
dom student, and you were chosen.
R: Okay.
TMD: Can I ask you a few ques-
tions?
R: Okay. Wait, is my name going to
be printed?
TMD: Maybe your first name.
R: Okay, I give you permission.
TMD: What year are you at school?
R: I'm a freshman.
TMD: Who's the better video game
character: Sonic or Mario?
R: Mmmmm ... Mario.
TMD: Who is Colin Powell?
R: (Pause ... silence ... asks room-
mate: Who is Colin Powell?) He's the
guy in the government.
TMD: What does he do in the
government?
R: Can I think for a second? I feel
like he does something medically. I
don't know.
TMD: Colin Powell is the secretary
of state.
R: My roommate thinks he's dead.
Are you laughing at me?
TMD: What is the name of the vice
president?
R: Oh my God! I am retarded!

(Asks roommate) My face is so red
right now ... LIEBERMAN!
TMD: What's your favorite movie?
R: Ummm ... "Mr. Deeds."
TMD: Who is the hotter actress:
Kirsten Dunst or Shannon Elizabeth?
R: Ooooh. I don't know. Kirsten
Dunst. I don't really think about why
girls are hot.
TMD: How long will the Affleck-
Lopez marriage last, assuming that it
does start?
R: No more than a year.
TMD: What's the craziest thing
you've done so far in college?
R: (Pause) Got drunk and danced all
night like a slut.
TMD: Where?
R: I can't tell you; it's a secret place.
TMD: Were you fully clothed?
R: Halfway.
TMD: Which is your favorite law of
thermodynamics?
R: The first one.
TMD: Why?
R: No, actually the second one
because my favorite number is num-
ber two.
TMD: Who's the best president of
your lifetime?
R: I would have to go with Clinton
because he provided me with the
most scandals.
TMD: Are you currently seeing
anyone?
R: Kind of... two people.
TMD: Ok, we're going to play the

random word association game now.
Do you know how to play?
R: No.
TMD: I'm going to say a word, and
then you're going to say the first
word that comes to your head. The
first is hamburger.
R: Hotdog.
TMD: The Michigan Daily.
R: No comment.
TMD: The next word is Doug.
R: That's one of the guys I'm talk-
ing to ... pilot.
TMD: Muffler.
R: Car.
TMD: Banana Republic.
R: Monkeys.
TMD: George W. Bush.
R: One cool guy.
TMD: That's more than one word.
R: Sorry - president.
TMD: That's enough of that game.
Who do you prefer, Aristotle or Plato?
R: Plato.
TMD: Why?
R: I've never really read philosophy
before, but I liked to play with
Playdough when I was little even
though I know they're not spelled the
same.
TMD: Would you rather watch C-
SPAN 2 for an hour or be beaten
senselessly with a pitchfork?
R: Beaten senseless. What is C-
SPAN 2?
TMD: It provides live coverage of
the U.S. Senate. Would you rather go

on a date with a fairly tall, 132-pound,
goofy Catholic kid or a blonde, white
- very white, awkward Jewish boy
who wears glasses?
R: I'll take the former of the two.
TMD: Would you like his number?
R: Sure!
TMD: Wait, are you serious?
R: Haha! No!
TMD: Ok, that's all. It was nice
talking to you, and tank you very
much for your cooperation.
(After wallowing in his rejection, our
interviewer tried again to win the
affection of the lovely Rachel.)
TMD: Hi Rachel, I realized that I
didn't conduct a thorough enough
interview the first time around, so are
you willing to give it a second try?
The Daily is the paradigm of journal-
istic integrity.
R: Sure.
TMD: I recall you saying that you
are currently seeing two individuals.
Do these two people know that they
are not exclusive?
R: No.
TMD: Do you plan on telling them?
R: No ....
TMD: Do you play sports?
R: Yes, basketball, football and vol-
leyball.
TMD: So, in your experience,
which is more important: Hard work
or stick-to-it-ive-ness?
R: Hard work.
TMD: What's wrong with stick-to-

it-ive-ness?
R: It's not a word.
TMD: Who would win in a fight:
You or your roommate?
R: Me.
TMD: What about Tom Cruise ver-
sus Brad Pitt?
R: Brad Pitt would because he's hot-
ter, and I think he's more built. But
Tom Cruise does hang off of moun-
tains, doesn't he?
TMD: He does.
R: I'm gonna stick with Brad Pitt
because he's younger.
TMD: Which is your favorite
building on campus?
R: The Big House.
TMD: Not the Frieze Building?
R: No.
TMD: Do you think the girls on
MTV's' "The Battle of the Sexes"
made a mistake by voting off Julie just
because Melissa doesn't like her?
R: Okay, I didn't watch the show. I
did see the previews, and that's what I
think happened. I think that Melissa's
a bitch because I watched New
Orleans.
TMD: Who's your favorite "Daily"
columnist?
R: I don't have one ... you! Wait,
you're not a columnist are you?
TMD: Do you read "The Daily?"
R:Yes.
TMD: Will you read this interview?
R: Possibly.
TMD: Thank you.
