Beck has been spending a lot of time at his computer. We’ve already posted about his “Irrelevant Topics” series a couple of weeks ago. Since his debut interview with Tom Waits, Beck and funnyman Will Ferrell sat down and had a chat. The interview was nothing short of HI-larious, from Beck’s introduction (see below) to stories of Ferrell’s dreams to be in Cirque du Soleil. But interviewing Will Ferrell isn’t the only thing the internet-savvy Beck has been up to lately. His Record Club, Planned Obsolescence, and Videotheque sections are all being updated fairly regularly. Check em out.
I met Will in 1997 when he was a new cast member on SNL and I was a musical guest. Somehow during rehearsals I got asked to participate in a skit with him. Over the years I got to watch him work several more times during his tenure as a cast member, undeniably a comic genius. We got to perform together once again at a benefit for Tsunami Relief in 2005. Here we got to catch up and talk about unitards, cirque du soliel and local 70's TV commercials.
