By Neal Pais
Daily Arts Writer
The Michigan Daily: Hi, may I
please speak with Courtney?
Random Student: I think you've
got the wrong number.
TMD: Damn that stupid directo-
ry! I guess it doesn't matter. You've
been selected to participate in this
week's Random Student Interview.
Who am I speaking to?
R: This is Maddy. Hey, what is all
this about?
TMD: Ah, that's what they all
want to know. Do you read the
Daily?
R:Yup.
TMD: Well, tomorrow, you'll get
to see the printed version of the
lovely conversation we're about to
have printed in Weekend Magazine.
R: Cool.
TMD: Indeed. So let's start. How

are classes going for ya?
R: Not too bad.
TMD: Did you get to watch the
season premiere of "The Sopranos"
on Sunday night.
R: Unfortunately not ... my
roommate and I don't have a TV in
our room.
TMD: Aww. That's a shame. It
was tight. Have you ever had any
aspirations of joining a major crime
family?
R: Umm ... actually, yeah, I have.
I saw this movie, "The Freshman,"
and afterwards, I thought of how
cool it would be to marry into the
mob.
TMD: Yeah, I've had those
dreams too. But that's because I'm
from New Jersey.
R: Really? Me too!
(Interlude: Conversation shifts
briefly to New Jersey. We are a clan-
nish lot.)
TMD: Sweet. Do you practice
yoga?
R: I tried it once, but it's so much
harder than it looks.
TMD: For sure. I did it with a
group of 40-something women from
work this summer. It was neat.
R: Wow. That sounds interesting.
TMD: Yes, it sure was. I dig the
older babes. That, and yoga allows
me to explore my connection with
the universe. Hey, did you hear
about that outbreak of syphillis in
Detroit?
R: No, man. That totally sucks.
TMD: Tell me about. But I think
it's the classiest STD you can get.
R: You think? I don't really know
too much about those sexual dis-
eases.
TMD: Me neither. But it seems
that only the coolest people used to
get it back in the day.
R: Really? Huh.
TMD: If you had the opportunity
to visit any place in the world,
where would it be?
R: Bali.
TMD: Oh, very cool. Yeah, I'd
like to chill down there some time.
If you could be a tree, what type
of tree would you be?
R: Umm, I'd definitely be one of
those big-ass trees in California ...
redwoods. That's it.
TMD: Do you think girls really
just wanna have fun?
R: I think everyone really wants
to have fun.
TMD: In your opinion, does the
night truly belong to lovers?
R: I dunno. Maybe.
TMD: Which would you rather
be: a nymph or a sprite?
R: I'd go for the sprite.
TMD: Do you enjoy the soothing
melodies of Enya?
R: Nah. Actually, I like that
"Time" one, but I didn't like it when
they remixed it.
TMD: I like that song a lot. I get
a lot of shit for it sometimes, but it's
great when you're doing yoga.

R: Yeah, I can see that.
TMD: Now, tell me about your
dreams. What do you unconsciously
ponder throughout the night?
R: I usually just dream about all
the shit that happens to me through-
out the day. And I dream of babies a
lot.
TMD: That's interesting. Are you
pregnant?
R: He he; no, I am not.
TMD: What else?
R: Oh yeah, I had this crazy
dream recently where I was at a frat
party at my brother's school and all
these boys were like chasing me
with a bat and stuff. It was really
scary.
TMD: I'll bet. I don't dream
about frat boys that often. Do you
think you could ever love a man
named Tugger?
R: Tugger?
TMD: Yeah, Tugger.
R: Yeah, sure. Why not? Hey, how
do I know this is a real interview?
TMD: O ye of little faith. I am
honestly a representative of The
Michigan Daily on the line; I swear.
You'll see tomorrow. And then,
you'll be a celebrity among all your
friends.
R: It is a little bit weird, though.
How do I know it's not just some
crank call?
TMD: Hey babe, that's the fun of
it. So, do you want to go out some-
time? I'm a Cowboy of Love.
R: Hahaha! What does that mean?
Do you wear a cowboy hat or some-
thing?
TMD: Nope. But I was born in
Texas. I'm just a love cowboy, I suppose.
R: So, you're not going to make a
complete fool out of me when this
thing comes out? Cause us Jersey
peeps have to stick together.
TMD: For sure. No, you've actu-
ally been an excellent interviewee.
Very cool, very chill. You've told
me some good shit.
And since you have been such a
good sport, I'm going to do some-
thing completely unconventional: I
am going to allow you to ask me a
question. Consider yourself priv-
eledged.
R: Ah, nice.
(Maddy consults with roommate
for question topic)
R: OK, if you were standing
behind any one person at the gates
of Heaven, who would it be?
TMD: Great question. Easy for
me, though: Jim Morrison.
R: Why?
TMD: Why ask why? He was the
man. Like, The Man.
R: Cool, cool. Yeah, he was pretty
bad-ass.
TMD: Ah well, that just about wraps
it up. You gave a great interview.
R: Thanks!
TMD: No, no, thank you.
R: Have a great day. Talk to ya later.
TMD: Yeah, you too. Now, go do
some yoga.
