By Neal Pals
Daily Arts Writer
The Michigan Daily: Hey, is
Vikram there?
Random: This is Carlos.
TMD: Hi, this is Neal from The
Michigan Daily. You've been ran-
domly selected to participate in
the Weekend Magazine's Random
Student Interview. After a little
hiatus, the Interview is finally
back ... you must be more excited
than George W. at a "snow party."
R: Ooh, a snow party! So, how
come I'm the lucky one?
TMD: As just implied, you were
selected randomly.
R: Well, this is just a joke, but
yeah, I'll do it.
TMD: Good. So, I just turned
21 a couple of days ago; I'm total-
ly lit right now. Ha ha, just kid-
ding; that would obstruct my
journalistic integrity.
What's been up with you lately?
Anything exciting in your life?
R: Not on this campus.

TMD: Did you vote last week?
R: Of course not. I hate politi-
cians.
TMD: So political punditry
doesn't make you excited?
R: Definitely not.
TMD: What do you think of the
tense political situation on cam-
pus?
R: It makes me want to cry.
TMD: What aspect of American
culture truly disturbs you?
R: Fast food.
TMD: Have you ever defecated
on someone's visage?
R: Can't say that I have.
TMD: Then has your counte-
nance ever been tainted with fecal
matter?
R: What the hell is "counte-
nance?"
TMD: Never mind - not
important.
Do you know what the spice of
life is?
R: The Spice Girls.
TMD: Have you ever been in
the doghouse?

R: In the doghouse? Um, no.
TMD: Have you ever been
inside a penal colony?
R: No, no, I haven't.
TMD: Do you have any penile
dysfunctions?
R: Nah.
TMD: Who is your favorite
political villain?
R: Does that include people
from the past?
TMD: Yeah, sure.
R: Hmm, who was the worst
Republican? I say Reagan.
TMD: Favorite Disney villain?
R: Uh, Bambi.
TMD: Bambi? But he was so
sweet and cute. Why him?
R: Because he should have
unselfishly given himself to the
hunters for food.
TMD: Have you ever had the
opportunity to freebase anything?
R: What does "freebase" mean?
TMD: It's probably better that
you don't know.
Do you have hair on the palms
of your hands?

R: What causes that?
TMD: You're an inquisitive one.
R: Yes, I am.
TMD: A bit uniformed, though.
But that's OK.
When was the last time you
wanted to rage against a machine?
R: At the ATM.
TMD: Do you know any good
tofu recipes?
R: No, I only eat flesh.
TMD: Briefly explain, to the
best of your ability, the notion of
moral relativism.
R: Oh man, I'm totally lost.
TMD: Do you ever hitch rides
on passing bandwagons?
R: Nope.
TMD: Do you worship multiple
gods?
R: No, just Vishnu.
TMD: Is it better to be a martyr
or a cynic?
R: Martyr.

TMD: What is one thing you
hope to accomplish before middle
age?
R: I'd like to be on a profession-
al bowling team.
TMD: Where do you think we
go after the long, strange trip?
R: To where?
TMD: You know, like ... uh, I
dunno. OK, scrap that one.
How do you pick yourself up
when you're feeling down?
R: I turn my frowns upside
down.
TMD: Ha. Witty, too.
Do you get pissed when your
unmentionables itch in public?
R: For sure.
TMD: In closing, tell me what
you think groups on campus
should do to enjoy harmony with
one another.
R: Listen to good music and
roast Marshmallows.
