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.

1. Where are you currently and why? Where would you rather be on an
ideal day in an ideal world?

I am in Macau/Macao in China overseeing the theatrical lighting
install for a brand new Dragone water show. I've been here for six
months and unexpectedly there is nowhere else that I would rather be.
It seems strange to write that and I certainly didn't expect to feel
this way about Macau. When I took the job I thought that I would just
be putting up with the place to make some money, but it has grown on
me and I love it.

2. Tell us your moblog story, how did it all begin for you, what
purpose does Moblog have for you?

I had a camera phone and a rapidly filling memory card, Moblog seemed
like the perfect way to do something with the images. What I didn't
expect Moblog to do was teach me how to take picture and give me the
opportunity to meet some of the loveliest people in the world. Moblog
helped me at a low point in my life and I will always be grateful for
the new sense of purpose and belonging it gave me. Since life has
become more hectic I have posted much less frequently, but I have
every intention of continuing. I guess I would liken Moblogs purpose
to "If a tree falls over in a forest and no one is their does it make
a noise?". If I take pictures that nobody sees is there any point?

3. What was your childhood obsession? What happened to it?

Anything Sci-fi, but more specifically:

Dr Who, what happened to it? They made the episodes slicker and
lighter, but shorter and less creepy.
Transformers, what happened to it? They turned it into a shit movie
franchise... I thought the cartoon movie was much better.
Super heroes, what happened to them? They became main stream and
respectable! I used to have to hang my head in shame whilst talking to
other geeks in dark corners, now every Tom, Dick, and Harry is
chatting about last nights episode of Heroes.

4. Name three things you would change in your life that would make you
happier?

1. I would completely get rid of my paunch, I'm half way there at the
moment and hope to have most of it gone by the wedding in November.

2. Laura and I would have a kid, we are working on this after
November... but we are still practising.

3. I would bring down Macau's humidity level.

5. How did you get into taking photographs?

I was on my first theatre tour and was spending a lot of time in new
places without my friends, having a camera gave me an excuse to wander
around a town on my own and not feel lonely or bored.

6. What are you currently reading?

I'm ashamed to say nothing. I just don't have the time or the energy
after reading and responding to emails all day. I do however listen to
"The Friday night comedy podcast", "The Mark Kermode movie review",
and the "BBC news" on my journey to work.

7. What's your motto? Your tagline? Your favorite saying?

"I don't eat anything with a Mum or a face"

8. You're a vegetarian, what's the most impressive dish you like to
cook?

It's always changing but my favourite meal at the moment is a
selection of Chinese style dishes. Aubergine in spicy garlic sauce,
Fried Gluten with carrot in Hosin sauce, Bok Choy fried in garlic with
a splash of soy sauce, Long pumpkin and mushrooms in oyster sauce,
these are then served with a flat bread.

9. So it's Desert Island Discs time and we're now choosing that one
record that remains after the hypothetical storm. What is that one
record?

I had a Ray Mears audio survival guide written on my list for a while
and then I decided that Jeff Wayne's War of the world would be better
company. But listening to "2 Many Dj's mix session 2" on the way to
work this morning convinced me that I would need to dance if I was
stranded on an island. I'm not sure if it is available as a disc, but
you can probably find it on your file sharing site of choice.

10. Of all the places you have traveled or lived, is there one
particular place that feels most significant?

That would be Vancouver Island because it is where Laura agreed to
marry me.

Great interview Steve. Many congratulations to you both on your forthcoming nuptials.

Dhamaka says:

this is a wonderful interview and it's great to hear from you
I think I share that feeling of suddenly finding myself mainstream - superheroes, comics, science fiction.. even my illnesses drag me into the mythical norm..

Here's wishing you even more fun in the practising and even more of what makes you love Macau

19th Jun 2009, 10:23

Steve says:

Thanks for the lovely comments.

nige says:

Been looking forward to this one since your email. Great. You make vegetanarianism (if that's even a word) sound great, and I share your like of 2manyDJ's!

taniwha says:

Nice one Steve. Here's to many more years of Moblogging. Agree with you on 3 but in relational to video arcades. Remember when they were dark, dangerous places?

19th Jun 2009, 12:52

nige says:

Great bloody portrait too.

t, i remember that! Ever been to the Agora in Wolverton? That place was the ultimate in dank arcardes...back when it was 20p a game too...

Helen says:

Sounds like you're learning lots of new recipes over there.

19th Jun 2009, 17:26

very good interview steve, many thanks and very good wishes for the future.

19th Jun 2009, 21:21

Steve says:

2 Many Dj's are the best.

I needed new recipes.

Judo-Jule says:

Glad you guys are enjoying yourselves over there. May there be many small Stevies and Lauras soon. x

Helen says:

Hope you're still making the halloumi stuffed crusts from time to time.

20th Jun 2009, 23:02

Steve says:

Not very a very long time, also they are not very diet!

21st Jun 2009, 01:01

Helen says:

That's why I said from time to time.

No pizza at all?

21st Jun 2009, 01:04

Steve says:

Actually we had pizza yesterday... day off, honest.

It's difficult sorting out everything to do home made bases here so they have been off the list.

Lots more stir frys.

Viv says:

waves - so pleased everything is going so well and looking forward to you baby blogging :)

OJ says:

Hey, long time no Steve. Lovely to see you - and a great image of course. I would expect nothing less.

Fried gluten sounds, well, interesting. Any great tofu recipies always gratefully received though.

23rd Jun 2009, 13:23

Steve says:

I had the fried gluten that I use in my cupboard in London for over a year, I just was not that tempted. Then I tried it... I never looked back... But maybe that was because my neck fat was to large.

23rd Jun 2009, 15:19

nige says:

Who's the next victim then? Are they out there?

26th Jun 2009, 13:23

Steve says:

They are out there... I will give them a nudge.

26th Jun 2009, 13:33

Steve says:

There has been a hiccup, normal service will resume shortly.

beth says:

Nice, can i come stay?

1st Jul 2009, 00:38

Steve says:

In my shower? That is highly inappropriate.

If you mean Macau then yes.

1st Jul 2009, 00:40

beth says:

Cool. I'm on a moblog world tour y'know. How long are you going to be there though? Because I've run out of money at my second country.

1st Jul 2009, 00:43

Steve says:

I'm here till at least next summer
