Revolting News Presents Sylvie Simmons Interview

Postby lightning » Sun Oct 14, 2012 6:17 pm

Tomorrow night, Monday, October 15, Revolting News has a departure from its usual Tuli fare-- an interview with British rock journalist, contributing editor of Mojo, author of numerous rock biographies including "Serge Gainsbourg, a Fistful of Gitanes," Sylvie Simmons. Her latest work, a 500 page biography about Leonard Cohen called "I'm Your Man," has received rave reviews, & already appeared on NY Times Best Seller list. Extensively researched, meticulously written, it is one hell of a rock bio written by a devoted fan who also covers Leonard's songs accompanied by her own ukulele. Sylvie sends us an interview from San Francisco with musician and recording engineer Joseph Pope.
Cohen began his career as a ladies' man by hypnotizing his maid and getting her to take her clothes off. We hear Sylvie read about that debut.

Revolting News a can be seen TV cable channels at 10 PM New York Time:

Time Warner Cable--ch.56
RCN Cable---Ch. 83
Verizon FiOS-- ch. 34

Worldwide, it is live streamed on the net at the same time at:

Whether you get the channel or not you can watch in on the internet. It is live streamed at MNN.org, so the whole world can see it. At 10 PM New York Time Go to MNN.org, then "watch now," then to channel 2, lifestyle. You will be able to interact-- to write things in the margin as the show plays. Enjoy-- it's a great show.

Alas, I missed the live broadcast at 7pm PT. I was wondering if this very interesting TV facility archives their interviews for later viewing?

Thank you for that, lightning.

Arlene: It's on today - Oct. 15 - at 7 pm, your time, I believe. So I don't think you could have missed it, since it's only about 1:30 pm your time, right now. . .

Thank you, lightning, for the video links. I did watch it on the live streaming (thanks Rachel) but I had very weak audio.
The audio is excellent on both YouTube and Vimeo. The whole segment was very enjoyable.
Thanks again for all of this. ---Arlene

Thanks for appreciating. Interesting to hear about the weak audio on the live stream. Thank heavens for internet video, you can watch it wherever and whenever you want. I I hope you leave a comment on the YouTube and/or Vimeo post, and I will get it to Sylvie.

I'm so glad to hear it's on youtube; we started to watch it Mon. night, but like Arlene said, the audio was very weak, & we thought it was because we didn't have the TV plugged in to the right speakers (we had connected the computer to the TV so that we could watch it on a bigger screen), so we turned it off, & we had already missed so much, so we didn't try to continue on the computer. I just checked out the youtube upload, & the audio & visual are both excellent, & it looks like a great interview, so I will watch it tonight. Thank you to lightning for the link & to the uploader for making it available. Very exciting!
