Pat Kilbane Interview

On Friday, July 29, 2011, I had the absolute pleasure of having Mad TV alum, author of The Brain Eater’s Bible and geek, Pat Kilbane (@TVsPatKilbane) sit down with me on the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show, over at The Look 24/7 (@TheLook247).

This interview/chatterview is my longest one to date. At many times, I forgot that we had people listening to the conversation. The conversation is very candid. I think it is safe to say that this is my most candid interview to date. Also, I think this interview is a must listen for creative types, especially if you are a self-publisher/ use new marketing models.

If you missed the interview, have no fear. You’ll find it below. But first, the show notes.

  • There is some crackling every now and then due to new tech set-up, which I describe as “garbly-goop”.
  • Things discussed during the interview include: Pat’s beginnings in Ohio and his degree in French; Language, profanity and culture; His start in stand-up comedy and move to Hollywood; Seinfeld, commercials, Mad TV and Saturday Night Live; Doing accents and impressions; More talk about profanity and venacular; Many things that are The Brain Eater’s Bible; Geek culture and pandering to it; Following your passions; Geeky Pleasures and the hows, whats and whys (notifce my screw-up re: the site’s birthday); Navigating, surviving and succeeding in the creative/ entertainment industry; Science fiction and fantasy, and the things we love and hate to see in movies and books; Hollywood and ego, and keeping grounded; The act of creating; Self-erected barriers, baggage and fear, and overcoming them; and then we wrapped things up with some shameless self-promotion.
  • At the beginning of the interview, you’ll hear the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show theme song by Chris Cogott (@chriscogott).
  • There is some NSFW language.
  • The format is mp3, 128 kbps, 44.1 kHz, stereo.
  • The size is 189 MB
  • The length is 3 hours 26 minutes 50 seconds.
