O.O Yeah, that Buck Angel.
Here's the deal. If you'd like to have me include a question in my interview, leave it in a comment, or shoot me an email (amara@mambazlair (dot) com) and maybe I can include it. Depending of course on how many we end up with, as much as I'd LOVE to ask him 1000000000 (<---a gazillion) questions, I prolly shouldn't ask him that many. That's kind of a lot. Oh, also let me know if you want me to ask it in a "so and so asks" kind of way, with your name all, or if you just want me to include it with my own, either way works for me, and we'll see what he says. :D
I'm blown away at this awesome. Seriously.
So, there you have it. While I'm working out all the fine details with him, I'll leave this up on the sidebar over yonder ----->
And we'll make the best damn interview... evah.
I have so much to do!!! I think I might me in over mah head. O.O (<--- dazed)
