A group distraction, presented by nige.


----------

The first instalment of Interview52 is now complete! It started on Friday 18th July 2008 and finished on 13th September 2009. A little later than expected, but we got there.


----------

52 mobloggers from around the world...

Some familiar, some not...

Each will publish a unique self-portrait, accompanied by a short interview.


Candid portrait meets candid interview.


The Rules

Every Friday the next interviewee in line will publish a new portrait and interview, consisting of their answers to the ten questions they have been given.

After they have published, the interviewee will then become the interviewer. They will be responsible for finding the next participant, as well as compiling the questions that this next person in line will answer. Interviewers can change as many or as few questions as they like, but they should change at least one before passing them on to the next lucky punter.

Thats it! Simple. More detailed instructions will be given to each interviewee as and when they are approached, so fear not.

Where does this find you? Tell us the story of how you got there.

It finds me in Broome, Western Australia. I was spent my early childhood at a place called Wynarka in South Australia. To get to Broome is pretty easy. Just head North for 3000 km, chuck a lefty and travel a further 1600km and when you hit the ocean, you should be in Broome. There have been a few detours along the way in Murray Bridge, Eucla, Halls Creek, Kununurra, Wyndham and Newman.


Why do you moblog?

To share and swap stories with others.


What were you hoping not to be asked for interview52?

What car do you drive?


Now answer it!

Well I don’t actual own a car, just a scooter, but I’m on the lookout for a V8 ute.


What would your biography be called, who would write it, and who would play you in the film?

Jiggers. I wouldn’t write it, so I don’t expect anyone else to. If it did go to film, someone like Bruce Spence would be a good fit.


Who has been an inspiration to you? Why?

No one in particular but collectively, the remote indigenous people in Western Australia. They live way below the poverty line, have serious health issues/go to way too many funerals, live in sub standard housing, but are always happy, make do with what they got and have strong belief in family and culture. Sort of changes ones priorities of what is important.


What book would you recommend to your fellow mobloggers to read and why?

Mayi: Some Bush Fruits of the West Kimberley. Its 56 A6 pages big, which is about my limit, has lots of pretty picture and some very useful knowledge on Bush Tucker plants.


What was your childhood obsession? What happened to it?

That would be killing ants. You grow out of it eventually.


Where do you go to my lovely, when you're alone in your head?

Some may say I am a few kangaroo short up there, but there really are enough voices in me head to keep me company at all times:)


If you had to draw a moblog family (and friend) tree, who would you be linked to, and how?

Alex Hayes, Jesson Trishus and Limitless are linked through AFLF projects. Swamprose, Viv, Geodyne, Factom, Boet, Mandy, Judo-Jules, Maggie D, Nige and Dhamaka are all connected spiritually.


Well that was fun. Hope you enjoy this read as much as I have enjoyed the previous posts

I like that inspiration answer too, and i'm always happy to be connected spiritually!

Bruce Spence is an interesting choice for an actor to play you. I've only really seen him in popular movies like Mad Max and The Matrix, but i've always enjoyed his performances.

I'm interested in the audio too. What made you choose it for your portrait, J?

NP Viv

Hey Nige, I'm white on the outside, but on the inside, there quite abit of aboriginal in me. The audio, I felt, was the best way to show this.

Most things you grow out of, but not all :)

nige says:

I can't think of a better way to show it either. I really like the idea of music and sounds as a self-portrait. Why be one dimensional by sticking to visuals? Love it.

I did, thank you and I'm sorry I got to this so late. I love your audio. A perfect accompaniment to reading your answers and a great way to give a feel of where you are
