1. What made you want to be an actress?

All my life growing up I never really knew what I wanted to
be. I always thought I’d be some kind of doctor or have a
profession with an emphasis in science. But after my first
acting classes, for the first time in my life, I felt
really passionate about something. It amazed me the
processes that actors go through to transform and to
immerse themselves into these different lives. And what
better way to spend your life then to do something you
love.

2. Who were your idols growing up?

Not to sound cliché, but my mom. She’s just such an
amazing woman, and I’ve always hoped that I would grow up
to be half the woman she is. I was never a kid who idolized
an athlete, or a singer. Though I do have to admit that I
was in love with Michael Jackson before I was even out of
diapers.

3. Would you go overseas for a role in a film?

I think going on location anywhere to film is great. So
going overseas would be like an extra bonus. There are not
many professions that allow you to experience such
diversity.

4. If you could work with anybody who would it
be?

Wow, that’s a tough one. Well what girl wouldn’t want to
work with someone smoking hot like Brad Pitt…haha.
On a serious note though, I would love to work with
Charlize Theron. She is just such an amazing actress to
watch on screen. Though it would be intimidating to work
with someone with such immense talent, it would be a great
learning experience.

5. What are some of your favourite movies?

I’m a big fan of movies that are just fun. Probably any
movie that I can watch over and over again and never get
tired of. On that list would be Billy Madison, Happy
Gilmore, Zoolander, and the dance movie Center Stage.

6. What movies you have seen lately you have really
enjoyed?

I’ve seen a lot of movies that I’ve enjoyed, but the last
one I saw that really touched me was Finding
Neverland.

7. Who have you enjoyed working with?

Well I’m still at the beginnings of my career, but I’ve
definitely enjoyed every set and group of people I’ve
worked with. And don’t forget all those people behind the
scenes too; they sometimes give you the best laughs.

8. What kinda role would you most like to
play?

I’m a big fan of dramas; I get such a thrill from playing
characters that are going through these dark periods of
their lives. Though in the movies its usually heightened
reality, I really enjoy the challenge of getting myself to
that emotional state of mind.

9. What are your thoughts on studio remaking
movies?

Good and bad. It’s always a disappointment to see a really
good movie poorly remade, because then it leaves a bad
taste in your mouth when you think of it again. But in the
sense of introducing a whole new generation to a movie they
might not have even known about, then I think it’s worth
it. There’s a lot of old movies that people haven’t seen
and probably never would, but remakes give them an
opportunity to enjoy a classic.

10. What are your favourite genre of movies?

I love any movie that’s based on a true story. I think it
makes any movie extra exciting to watch.

10. What has been your favourite role so far?

I enjoyed the challenge of the drama I did called Touch My
Girl. I played a young girl in an abusive relationship
trying to break free. It was very intense, and taught me a
lot about the challenges of being a good actor.

12. If you could be on any tv show what would you be
doing?

I think it would be cool to play an intern on Grey’s
Anatomy. I’m a big fan of the show and the drama that
happens between all the characters is always
entertaining.

13. What your view on realty TV? Good Or Bad?

Well as an actress I would have to say bad because it puts
us out of work with less acting opportunities. As a
consumer though I would say the reality shows that are
based around helping people or informing them are great. I
can’t stand most of the others.

14. What have you got lined up next?

Exciting news to come!

15. What’s in your stereo at the moment?

Christina Aguilera’s Stripped album. I can’t get over how
talented she is.

16. What are some of your favourite music
artists/bands?

I’m a big fan of music that brings back memories of growing
up. Anything from the 80s and 90s.

17. What do you enjoy doing when not acting?

Lately I’ve been catching up on all the Harry Potter books
and organizing my photo albums.

Thanks to Bruce from Pine River Entertainment for
organising it and Shaila for doing it

Interview With Lindsay Felton By Chris 23/2/06

Lindsay Felton is one great hard working actress.
She has been in the movie Grind and in the tv series
Caitlin’s Way
She will be around for a while so I wanted to help promote
her
So read on

1. What made you want to be an actress?

Well, I started it as a hobby in Seattle, where I am from,
because a family friend started a children’s talent agency.
I always thought it was a lot of fun and had a natural
talent for it… Then when I was eight years old I got a
big part on a national tv sitcom called Thunder Alley. That
was the first time I ever got a taste of what it was like
to do it for a living and ever since then I just never
could fathom doing anything else with my life. Every
project I worked on, I became more and more certain about
it.

2. Who were your idols growing up?

I really loved Mary Martin from this old version of peter
pan because I wanted to play peter pan and she was the
first woman I ever saw do that. My other favourite female
actresses that I watched a lot were Judy Garland in the
Wizard of Oz and Olivia Newton John in Grease…. I also
really idolized Robbie Benson who did the voice of the
Beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast because he was the
director of Thunder Alley… Those were when I was really
young… and most importantly I idolized my mother, not as
an actor of course, but a person in general.

3. Would you go overseas for a role in a film?

Of course! I have already, and would love to again.

4. If you could work with any body who would it
be?

The Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, Kevin Smith, PT Anderson,
Robin Williams, Johnny Depp, Elijah Wood, Hayden
Christensen, Meryl Streep, Cathrine O’Hara, Eddie Izzard,
Christopher Guest, Gael Garcia Bernal, Claire Danesm
Scarlett Johannson…. and my buddy Vince Vieluf (over and
over again)…

5. What are some of your favourite movies?

Too many to list really, but I will *attempt* a top ten (in
no particular order):
1. Clockwork Orange
2. Mallrats
3. Best in Show
4. Galaxy Quest
5. Goonies
6. Bottle Rocket
7. Boogie Nights
8. Shawshank Redemption
9. Evil Dead 2
10. As Good as it Gets PLEASE NOTE: This is the smallest
fraction possible that I could list in order to represent
my taste in movies, but they are my life and I could list
100,000 more…

6. What movies you have seen lately you have really
enjoyed?

Good Night and Good Luck and the City of Lost
Children.

7. Who have you enjoyed working with?

I have been really fortunate to have worked with some of
the greatest people on the planet. My friend Jeremy Foley
from my show Caitlin’s Way was one of my best friends for
years during and after the show. In fact, nearly everyone
on Caitlin’s Way became a close friend of mine for years,
cast and crew… Also, Vince from Grind, who I actually met
in Canada before we filmed the movie when I was doing
Caitlins Way and he was doing Rat Race. Vince and I are
still friends and having him play my brother was one of the
greatest things that has ever happened.

8. What kinda role would you most like to
play?

I would like to play a lot of different roles, but I think
my ideal parts lately have been Kiera Knitely’s role in
Pirates of the Caribbean, Scarlett Johansson’s role in Lost
in Translation, Natalie Portmans role in Garden State,
and/or Closer or Claire Danes’s roles in Romeo and Juliet,
Igby Goes Down, and Shopgirl.

9. What are your thoughts on studio remaking
movies?

There are no original ideas really, so it makes sense…
but if it was a GREAT movie the first time around, they
should make sure it is going to be just as great or greater
if they are going to re-make it. Unfortunately that is not
always the case now is it?

10. What are your favourite genre of movies?

Comedies, Dramadies, or anything that is really weird and
twisted. Almost anything with a lot of humor and
irony.

11. What were some of your favourite tv shows growing
up?

Sesame Street, Winnie the Pooh, Fraggle Rock, The Cosby
Show, Cheers, Home Improvement, You Can’t Do That on
Television, Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude, Are You Afraid of
the Dark, Clarissa Explains it All, and Pete and
Pete.

12. What your view on realty TV? Good Or Bad?

Bad for me… It takes away from all the parts I could be
getting if they were actual shows… but what can I say? I
have been sucked into my share of reality television.

13. What have you got lined up next?

::Sigh:: I am sad to say, nothing at the moment. I
currently attend acting classes and am actively looking for
acting work here in Los Angeles. It’s a tough road I have
chosen for myself, but hopefully that will just make
success that much sweeter. I haven’t worked since filming
GRIND in 2003, but I know something is gonna happen this
year. If I don’t get on a set soon I will go insane!

14. What’s in your stereo at the moment?

I have an IPOD, and lately I have been listening to:
“Rebellion” and “Headlights look like Diamonds” by The
Arcade Fire, “That Dress Looks Nice on You” by Sufjan
Stevens, “To be Young is to be Sad (is to be High)” by Ryan
Adams, “New Slang” and “Caring is Creepy” by the Shins,
“More Than a Feeling” by Boston, anything by The Beatles or
Ben Folds…

15. What are some of your favourite music
artists/bands?

To name a few in no order:
1. Led Zeppelin
2. The Beatles
3. Ben Folds/Ben Folds 5
4. The Doors
5. The Shins
6. Simon and Garfunkle
7. Bob Dylan
8. The Allman Bothers
9. Crosby, Stills, and Nash
10. The Cure Oh man, top 10 lists are SO HARD!

16. What do you enjoy doing when not acting?

Watching Movies, Hanging Out with Friends, Camping,
Drinking, Eating, Shopping, Disneyland, Road Trips,
Karaoke, Hookah Bars, Listening to Music, Reading, Writing,
Taking Pictures…. Playing with my cat.

17. What has been the highlight of your career so
far?

Probably when I was on Caitlin’s Way, my Nickelodeon
show… It was one of the greatest times of my life. Grind
was pretty awesome too though.

18. What is next for Lindsay Felton?

Something Fantastic! I will let you know when it happens…
until then, Rent GRIND if you haven’t seen it, or watch me
in the movie I filmed in Paris, it’s called “The Metro
Chase”. You can get it on Netflix and Amazon.com… I will
tell ya, I was partying in Paris when I made that film
about 4 or 5 years ago, and it’s not what I’d call “Great
Art” or anything, but it’s cute, check it out in support of
me if nothing else. In fact, if you feel like supporting
me, find me under my name on imdb.com and watch anything of
mine you can find, and then post about it on the message
boards or write to the companies that produce and cast the
movies and tell them that you’d like to see me in more
stuff, haha! Alright, thanks for taking the time to read
this. Cheers!

Interview With Lori Adele By Chris 18/2/06

Lori Adele is one hard working model.
She works hard at being a model and will go far.
So I wanted to help her out and get her name out there
further
So read this interview from this beautiful and lovely
lady.
Who happends to be one of my favourites right now
So you wanna work with Lori contact via this site davidkphoto.com.

Lori
One Model Place Profile

1. Why did you decide to become a model?

It’s something I have always wanted to do ever since
I was a little girl. My sister, my best friend, and I used
to get all dressed up and do our makeup.Then, take turns
posing for the camera. It’s funny looking at the
pictures now, tons of makeup and wearing our mom’s
high heels.

2. What has been the highlight so far?

Seeing myself on TV. I was on the Speed Channel twice, for
the Hooters Pro Cup and for the Cleveland Grand Prix. I was
first runner up in the Miss Grand Prix of Cleveland
pageant. I was also on the reality show “Race Car
Driver”.

3. Who has helped you the most?

My family and friends. Dave from DK Photography, he’s
a good friend and is always there when I need advice.

4. Has the internet helped with your career?

Definitely, it’s helped me out a lot. It’s
helped me get in contact with people whom I would have
never met without it. The exposer you get on the internet
is endless.

5. Have you had any bad feedback?

I wouldn’t say bad feedback, but everyone in this
business has been rejected. Everyone has gone for an
audition and not make it. It’s just part of the
business. You’re just not what they are looking for
at the time, you can’t take it as an insult. You
might get turned down a lot, but the way I look at it,
it’s all good experience. Whether you get the job or
not, you tried and you learned from it.

6. Who would you most like to work with?

It was always a dream of mine to work with Kevyn Aucoin, I
think he was one of the greatest makeup artists ever. But,
unfortunately he passed away in 2002. He was amazing, it
was crazy the things he could do with makeup. He was a true
artist. Now, I would like to work with people who are just
as creative and as talented as he was.

7. Which models do you look up to?

Anyone who hasn’t made it big and is still trying.
Someone who can keep their head up and keep trying, that is
admirable. There are a lot of great models out there that
just haven’t been discovered yet.

8. How did you get involved with WONE’S Women That
Really Rock?

Photographer Dennis Roliff saw my online portfolio on One
Model Place and emailed me. He said he thought I would make
a great candidate. So, I made appointment for an interview
and got the job.

9. If you could be in any one music video who’s
would it be?

I think I would have to pick Aerosmith. I have loved them
every since I was little. Their Jaded video with Mila Kunis
was amazing.

10. What type of shoot would most not do?

Pornographic, like Hustler or Penthouse. I could never do
that.

11. What have you got lined up next to do?

I’m shooting the motorcycle apparel line Power Trip
with the Star Boyz.

12. Would you ever start up a website to help your
modeling career?

Yes, I already have a online portfolio on a portfolio
hosting website. I’ve been thinking about starting my
own. It’s a great way to get exposer. Almost everyone
has a website now.

13. If you could be on The Simpsons or Spongebob
Squarepants where would you be?

The Simpsons, I love that show.

14. What is on your stereo at the moment?

Shakira, in English or Spanish I love her music.

15. What are some of your favorite musical
artists/bands?

Shakira, Tupac, Pepper, Christina Aguilera, Dave Mathews
Band, Kanye West, Jon B, Kelly Clarkson, Twista, John
Legend, Audioslave, Jaheim, Jagged Edge, Alicia Keys, there
are so many I could go on forever.

16. What movies you have seen lately that you have
really enjoyed?

Waiting, If you have ever worked in a restaurant
you’ll love it. The Terminal, I don’t know why
I waited so long to see it. Tom Hanks did a great job in
this movie.

17. What are your favorite movies?

The Crow, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Super Troopers,
Goonies, The Man in the Moon, Waiting, Out Cold

18. Reality TV? Good Or Bad?

That’s a hard one, depends on which show. American
Idol is good because it helps people with a great deal of
talent the exposer they need to get started. The marriage
shows, bad. To have a group of men or women compete for
someone’s hand in marriage is weird and wrong.
It’s all about competition, not love and that what
marriage should be about. Growing Up Gotti, good, just
because those guys are so cute, a little to young for me,
but cute.

Thanks for you time any last words

Thank you so much for taking the time to interview me. I
also want to say thank you to everyone who has helped me
out. Keep a look out for my site, I’m hoping to get
one soon. But, for now you can check me out at davidkphoto.com


The Pop Project

The Pop Project
Picture copyright respected holders.

Interview With Dave Lawson From The Pop Project By Chris
16/2/06

The Pop Project one of the most coolest bands
ever.
Their music really rocks and is so damm catchy to listen
to.
Plus they did a tribute to Jesse Frederick
who did the vocals and co wrote the theme songs for Full
House and co.
So I wanted interview these guys.
So Read On.

1. How did the band form?

The band’s current line-up came together after a long
history of firings and hiring’s. “The Pop Project” got its
start in 1998, as a “pop project” from the punk rock band
The Metros, which Zach Curd (keyboards) and I (guitar)
played bass and drums in, respectively. Zach didn’t join
the Pop Project until 1999, just before we recorded our
first full length, Let’s Eat Green Beans. Adam joined on
drums in 2002 for our second album, Life Is Life, and Will
made the lineup complete (in its 10th form!) in the summer
of 2003. Will, Zach, and I all write songs for our upcoming
full length, Stars of Stage and Screen, which should be
done this summer.

2. Who were your idols growing up?

I think Superman was my idol when I was six years old,
though I could personally relate a lot more to Ralph
Hinkley in Greatest America Hero. Once I got into music, I
became fixated on John Lennon, Eddie Vedder, and Ian
MacKaye. From those influences a lot of doors were opened
for me.

3. Who were your influences?

It seems obvious, but I can’t discount the influence of
giants like the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and the Kinks.
Zach went through a serious Steely Dan obsession, which
definitely affected the band’s sound. As far as more
current bands, we can pretty much all agree on Sloan and
Jellyfish.

4. What is like playing in America?

I’ve never played any shows in New Zealand, so it’s hard to
compare. From the shows I’ve played on other continents,
I’d say that rock bands here are very common and venues
take you for granted. In Europe and Japan, the venue treats
you as a guest, but in America the venue treats you more as
a co-worker. Then again, venues in Detroit are probably a
lot friendlier to a band from Europe than just another band
from Detroit, so I can’t really make an objective
statement.

5. What inspired you to make TGIF EP?

This was one of those things in discussion for a while
before it happened. Zach and I long ago had geeked out over
the themes themselves and realized that the same guy sang
on “Family Matters,” “Step By Step,” and “Full House.” Zach
went to work researching into Jesse Frederick’s past,
finding a vinyl copy of his first solo album (recorded at
the age of 19) for sale on the Internet. The original idea
was just to play the themes live at a show, but it was
Adam’s idea to record the songs as an EP. In doing the EP,
we had to license the songs, and in this learning
adventure, Zach actually got a hold of Jesse Frederick on
the phone and we were able to learn about his battles with
the major labels who held his second and third solo albums
hostage, unreleased and collecting dust. Since the label
wouldn’t let him release his solo albums and he was locked
into a contract, the only creative outlet he was allowed
was to write TV theme songs. So it’s no wonder these songs
pack so many ideas into such a tiny space: it’s a pop
genius with ideas bursting at the seams. Recording the EP
was made an easy pleasure with a lot of help by Will, who
transcribed most of the parts for the band using his
superhuman perfect pitch. In the end, Adam trumped us all
with his in depth Jesse Frederick and song licensing
research, which is documented in detail on his famous
blog.

6. Has the Internet helped with your music?

There are two answers to this question: yes and yes. Yes,
because it’s always surprising how people like yourself
find us through the internet. It’s a worldwide audience for
free, if someone is looking. The other yes is because we
also use the Internet as a primary mode of communication
within the band, and get most of our band business done
over emails. We’ve also been known to send demos of songs
to each other to decide which songs to tackle next. So in
that way, the Internet has helped us create music as well
as promote it.

7. What are your thoughts to file sharing and the mp3
format?

I think it’s great. There’s just too much good music out
there to soak it all up one CD at a time. Mp3s are a great
way to check out bands and see if you like them. You found
us from the mp3s on our site – enough said.

8. Have you had much response from it?

I’m currently answering questions to be read in New
Zealand, so yes.

9. Has MySpace helped you guys in anyway?

Zach is in control of that, but as far as I know we get a
lot of messages and people checking us out on there. I
don’t do much of that business.

10. Have you got any recordings in the
pipeline?

The new album is almost done and should be out this summer.
Definitely the next step forward for us. GROWTH!

11. Have you had much response from radio?

Mainly just local radio, since we haven’t toured much
outside the area. That’ll change with this next record
though.

12. What are your thoughts on realty tv talent shows eg
idol and so on?

As much as he can fake the diva slide, Ruben can’t hold a
note to save his life. I must admit the shows are addictive
though.

13. If you could have a dream gig line up who would they
be?

Andy Sturmer’s Comeback Show would be a dream for at least
Zach, Adam, and I.

14. Have you had much support from radio?

See above!

15. If you could be on The Simpsons or Spongebob
Squarepants where would you be?

That’s like saying Beatles or Rutles. Simpsons,
definitely.

16. What is on your stereo at the moment?

I can’t stop thinking about Curtis Mayfield lately, and I
don’t know why. I think on my turntable is a copy of Six
Pack to Go by Hank Thompson, which has a great
album cover
. We keep a list of each band member’s
favorite tracks on our website, www.popproject.com , so
that’s really the best answer to your question.

17. What are some of your favourite musical
artists/bands?

Each of us have our own obsessions. Mine lately has been
old country and early 70s r&b. If I can write a
successful r&b / honky tonk crossover, my life would
probably be complete. There are a lot of great other local
artists around Detroit, such as our labelmates The Recital
(which our drummer Adam plays bass in), Javelins, Those
Transatlantics, and El Boxeo. Also, Anathallo, The Sights,
The Hard Lessons, and Rescue are all bands we love and
respect.

18. What movies you have seen lately you have really
enjoyed?

I just saw Me and You and Everyone We Know and definitely
recommend it.

19. What are your favourite movies?

That recent Scorcese Dylan documentary is pretty great. I
really like watching music movies over and over again,
since each time you learn more about the artist you can
rewatch it and get something new out of it. I think
Mulholland Drive is pretty underrated.

20. Realty TV? Good Or Bad?

I think it’s good, since reality is often more interesting
than fiction. However, the “reality” of most reality TV is
pretty suspect, and that bothers me. I don’t watch a lot of
television though, so it’s all a novelty to me.

21. Beer Of Choice?

“Give me the cheapest stuff you’ve got.”

Interview With Kate Tucker By Chris 12/2/06

When I first her Kate Tucker music
on Myspace I thought this was different and I was really
blown away
and her latest release Eros Turannos is unbelievable.
She is so good and talented and naturally was worthy of
interviewing her
So read on and defently check out her stuff.

Kate Website

1.How did you get into music?

When I was four years old, I discovered one of those tape
recorders with a single speaker and the nifty carrying
handle, so I kept it with me wherever I went, and recorded
songs as I was inspired… Of course they were all
acapella, but I’d say that was when I started thinking
about singing, when I first started singing my own songs
and listening back to them. My parents still have those
silly tapes. Maybe we should remaster them.

2.What were your major influnces?

I grew up in church, so hymns and gospel music was where it
all started. At home we listened to classical records,
Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, everyone
really…Later on I discovered folk music, Dylan, Joni
Mitchell, Carol King, and then the passionate drama of
music in the ninety’s with Mazzy Star, My Bloody Valentine,
Cowboy Junkies, The Cranberries, Wilco, Radiohead, and
Portishead. I’d say that’s where I’ve come from.

3.If you could have a three band bill who would they
be?

I’d love to open for Joseph Arthur and then have Wilco
finish out the night. Wilco is an incredible live
band!

4. What has been the highlight of your career so
far?

Recording this latest album, “Eros Turannos,” was one big
trip. I can’t wait to do it again with the next one.

5. What is it like being an artist in america?

Oh, I don’t know…maybe like being an artist in
Australia. It really depends on the city, America is just
too big.

6. What inspires you when writing music?

The sun, the sky, the weather really…and where I’m
at, spacially, emotionally,
geographically…everything must have a role I
suppose.

7. What made you want to go out and play
music?

Definitely being at killer shows where I felt something I
couldn’t describe, but I wanted be a part of that
incredible experience in a closer way. I wanted to see what
I could do with my own music to create such experiences as
I had so appreciated.

8. What are your thoughts on file sharing and the mp3
format?

Do it up. Artists signed to labels aren’t making the money,
it’s the labels who are losing on file sharing. Unsigned
artists don’t have anything to lose to begin with. It’s
exposure and I’m all for getting the word out. All that
said, I love holding and owning good music, nothing beats a
killer album with art and lyrics and everything. So
download, and then buy it if you love it.

9. Who would most like to record a song with?

Off the top of my head, Michael Timmens from Cowboy
Junkies, Jeff Tweedy, and Joseph Arthur. But if it could be
anybody…that would take some thinking.

10. Do you think the internet is good for helping
artists get known?

Are you kidding? I don’t know how anyone did it
before—much respect to the lo-fi generation.

11. What bands/artists are you listening to
lately?

Cat Power is getting me through this rainy winter. Beth
Orton, Laura Viers, Wilco, The Shins, Damien Jurardo, Iron
and Wine, Joseph Arthur, and Interpol.

12. Who has helped you out the most?

Geez, everyone who’s ever bought a cd, everyone who’s come
to shows, everyone who’s let me know their thoughts on my
work…everyone.

13. What has the responce been to the EP Eros
Turanno?

It’s gotten a good amount of attention. Being featured in
Starbucks stores across America has definitely helped. And
American Songwriter Magazine is about to do a review on it,
so I think it’s still riding out some exposure. It’s being
played on radio throughout the US too, so I can’t
complain.

14. What has the response been like for your music on
the web?

I love the internet. As much as it makes zombies of us all,
I can’t say enough of how it has enabled me to move my
music further and really get out there.

15. Any responces from overseas record labels?

I haven’t really solicited any responses overseas, but if
you’ve got any ideas, let me know.

16. Have you sent your stuff to radio?

Yep. It’s charting a bit here and there right now.

17. What are some of your favourite movies?

Suddenly I feel like we’re on myspace. The Wilco
documentary is pretty rad. And Godard’s Pierrot Le Fou is
maybe my alltime fave.

18. What have you seen recently you really
enjoyed?

Suddenly my mind is blank. I don’t often get to the
theatre, unfortunately.

19. What is next for Kate Tucker?

Another album baby. Look for it this autumn.

Thanks very much for your time any last words?

Not today…
