Steve is the featured author in the Case Notes section of Black Static #11, and there's a second, online interview to go live on 14th June, so I'm creating this thread to link back to for when that happens.

Online interview with Steve Mosby now live here:-

http://www.ttapress.com/627/getting-to-know-you/0/5/

Thoughts, anyone? Do you agree with him about "Audition", "The Descent", "Frankenstein" etc? Do you prefer pizzas to burgers?

And, most essentially, what do you think of frivolous interviews like this?

Well thank goodness for that. I thought I was the only one who thought The Grudge was scary.

:shock:

No no. I was scared, too. I also went through a phase of making those clicky noises.

Also agree about the stuffed crusts. Seriously, can't beat 'em.

I like these sort of interviews. They're fun and light-hearted and let us see the interviewee as a human being. You know, an every day human who shops in Tesco and waits for buses, instead of the creative, thoughtful person they are in front of the keyboard. I mean, I know it's not that simple, but you get what I mean.

Are stuffed crusts a variation on those nasty deep-pan monstrosities? I like proper pizza, me - like wot they have in Italy. Pizza Express for me!

Hmmm, Usual Suspects, Memento... Memento, Usual Suspects. That's tough. Add The Machinist and it's even tougher.

Mike, I'm with you on Italy being the place to go for a good pizza... but, seriously, Pizza Express???? The two things don't belong in the same sentence!

(Well, not unless your P.E. is better than the couple I've ever been to in London or Harpenden, of course! Overpriced tat.)

If you add The Machinist, it's The Machinist for me. And if you add in Session 9 as well, it's Session 9.

I much prefer good, authentic Italian pizza, by the way, but there's something great about those garlic and cheese stuffed crusts...

Glad people liked the interview.

I've been to Pizza Express only once. There was a party of us from work, and as there was more than ten people they charged extra.

If you bring more custom their way, they are supposed to give you a group discount, not charge more.

It was over fifteen years ago, and I've never been back. I know how to hold a grudge :evil:

And as they're still in business, I assume the surcharge thing no longer applies.

Ooh, I love Pizza Express. Can't beat their veneziana. Or the bosco salad thingy. Or those new ones with the salad in the middle, so you can pretend to be all healthy while really you're scoffing pizza.

You see the heated debate these things engender Pete...

:D

I don't like those 'Italian' pizzas. I feel like they're cheating me out of my toppings. Pizza is a topping delivery method, not a meal in its own right. And then you give me, what, a base with a blob of mozzarella on it and half a mushroom? That's not a pizza. That's something they give you for free when you're waiting for your main meal to arrive.

Heated debate, eh :lol:

Stuffed crusts and garlic doughsticks at ten yards :twisted:

My favourite is the eat as much as you like buffet at Pizza Hut. I regard it as a personal challenge :P

AKA "Eat as much as you like 'cos it's mostly just bread anyway". (I bet you extend the sidewalls of your salad bowl with cucumber as well, don't you?)

I think the worst pizza I've tasted was when curiosity prompted my wife to order a 'pizza bianca' in Italy one time. Out it came - pizza base, cheese topping, and - nothing else! Essentially a very substandard variation on cheese-on-toast.

Well, I usually start with a plate full of pasta and finish with a plate of salad, but yeah, the six plates of pizza in-between were probably 'mostly just bread' :twisted:

I don't like cucumber, and there's no need for sidewalling anyway, as you can go back to the salad bar as many times as you like :P
