Today I’d like to highlight the other half of Burrow Press: Jana Waring.¬†She’s been busy engaging the real world and working hard for the next book we’re putting out. She also happens to be the mastermind behind waringis.com, a site on which she posts her interviews with a huge variety of people who live in Orlando. Hell, she even wrote a book about it¬†(which makes a great gift!). One of these days she’ll have some time to post here, but until then, in the spirit of daily posts, and the spirit of not hounding our other contributors during this hectic week, here are three of Jana’s recent interviews for your reading pleasure. I fully endorse reading more than these three.
1. You’ve heard¬†of the Blue Man Group? No. You know nothing of the Blue Man Group. You know not who they are, where they come from, are they aliens? This interview with Blue Man Jordan Woods-Robinson sheds light on this mysteriously pigmented entertainment cult.
2. You like basketball, eh? You ever wonder what it’s like when a veteran player retires? I always imagined it would be weird, a kind of withdrawal. Well, this interview with former Orlando Magic player Adonal Foyle¬†gave me some pretty awesome insight into the mind of an athlete, and a really intelligent one at that.
3. The kids are calling it hip hop. And there’s been a lot of miscegenation over the years and also very recently: the new Kanye features Bon Iver; the new Cee Lo has him covering a Band of Horses song. This interview with musician SKIPtouches on the whole white rapper thing, and shows how¬†much hard work it is for anyone to survive on art alone. Like most talented rappers, this will make you question how someone like Soldja Boy Tell Em or¬†Gucci Mane ever got signed.
