m Michigan Daily: Hi is Kevin
Random: Hey, what's up?
TMD: This is Chris from The Michi-
gan Daily and you've been selected to do
the Random Student Interview. Do you
have a couple of minutes?
R: Ah, yeah.
TMD:, First question: Did you watch
R: Hell no.
TMD: Hell no? Why not?
R: Cause it's a waste of time because
it's a bunch of bullshit.
TMD: Why is it all bullshit?
R: Because it gets voted on by rich
people who are in an elite group. It's
not voted on by the people who actually
watch the movies.
TMD: You don't like rich people?
R: No, I don't mind rich people but
I don't think they should decide our
TMD: When did they become your
R: Well, they're notour awards but the
people who watch them and the people
TMD: I know you don't really care,
but what do you think about "Crash"
winning? It was a big upset.
R: I think it's pretty cool that a movie
that's actually artistic-won for a change.
"American Beauty" was the last movie
that won that had some meaning. Like,
most of the movies are all blockbusters
and aren't very artistic.
TMD: What do you think about Three
6 Mafia winning an Oscar?
R: I have no idea what that movie is.
TMD: It's a band. They're a rap
R: Was that from "Hustle & Flow?"
R: Well, the whole movie is about
music. So I guess it's not bad that the
one good movie that came out all about
music won an Oscar.
TMD: But Three 6 Mafia got banned
from clubs for a song called "Tear the
Club up '97" where people literally
tore the club up. And now they have an
R: Well, they voted on it.
TMD: Next question: What do you
think about outer space?
R: Just outer space in general?
R: Outer space is crazy. It's dark.
TMD: It is dark and crazy. Do you
think we really landed on the moon?
TMD: Do you think there's a Michi-
gan flag on the moon?
R: I want to see a picture from a shut-
tle going over it, but there probably is.
TMD: How about Michigan basket-
R: I think we'll make the tournament
but if Abram and Hunter aren't playing,
we're going to get embarrassed in the
TMD: But we closed out the year los-
ing 40 games or so.
R: Yeah, but even though we lost it
was because we didn't have Abram and
TMD: What do you think about Bam
Margera getting arrested?
R: That dude came to Michigan once.
Well, he's kind of disgusting so I expect
him to. What did he do, touch a girl who
didn't want to be touched or something?
TMD: Actually, he got drunk in an
R: Well, that's kind of sweet actually.
TMD: He had brass knuckles in his
R: But they've got bars in airports,
you're supposed to get drunk in an air-
TMD: Yeah, but you're not supposed
to be a belligerent asshole.
R: So he got arrested for public intoxi-
TMD: That and having brass knuck-
les in his backpack.
R: I mean, you've gotta have protec-
tion. What's wrong with that?
TMD: He was at an airport and going
on a plane.
R: Maybe he needed them cause if he
has a wife, he's gotta keep her in line.
TMD: OK. What was your favorite
R: That's a tough one. Probably Etch-
TMD: That's pretty good but a little
boring. Mine was probably my Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtle figures.
R: Oh yeah, anything Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles. That's where I learned my
first swear word.
TMD: They swore?
R: Cowabunga buttheads. I used to
always say that.
TMD: Really? I really don't remem-
ber that at all.
R: Well then I think you're missing
TMD: Speaking of the Turtles, what
do you think about Point/Counterpoint
in The Statement? It's Ninja Turtles vs.
R: Oh yeah. I think they both have
their valid points but the G.I. Joes are
pretty conservative. So I prefer the ston-
er, pizza-eating Turtles to G.I. Joes.
TMD: Yeah, getting stoned and eat-
ing pizza is pretty awesome. Do you
think robots are pretty cool?
R: There's nothing like good old
TMD: So you don't really like them
TMD: Would you ever get a pet
R: Hell no. If I'm going to get a pet I
want it to be real.
TMD: What's not real about a robot?
R: We made it. We don't make pets,
we make robots.
TMD: I think we do make pets now
though. We engineer cows and sheep.
R: That doesn't count, I am not going
to have a cow as a pet. Although, If we
start to clone our own animals, which we
probably will ... well, there's that Arnold
Schwarzenegger movie where they do
that. They clone their pets so the kids
won't know they died.
TMD: "Total Recall?"
R: No it's not that.
TMD: "Conan the Barbarian?"
R: No. It's futuristic, but not that
R: No. That was like present day.
TMD: "Terminator 3?"
R: No, come on. "28 Days." I think
that's what it was.
TMD: Not "28 Days Later" with
zombies? It didn't have Arnold Schwar-
zenegger but it had zombies.
R: No, but it's a number.
TMD: What restaurant do you think
is missing on campus?
R: Burger King.
TMD: I think Popeyes is missing. We
need some good fried chicken here.
R: No, I worked at KFC/Taco Bell,
so I am not going to say either of those.
Fried chicken is pretty gross. And we
don't have enough ah ... I can't say it
because it wouldn't be printed.
TMD: Could you beat me up if we
fought? Are you a big dude?
R: I think so. I am a little bigger than
TMD: Do you jazzercise?
TMD: Pilates? It really works your
TMD: If Dick Cheney had a kid now
what would it look like?
R: It would be missing a couple of
TMD: A couple of arms? Like two or
R: Yeah, two or three.
TMD: Is it OK for guys to wear
R: It's not OK for guys to wear boots.
TMD: Why not?
R: Because boots are not cool. Girls
shouldn't even wear Uggs.
TMD: Yeah, but their feet aren't hairy
