    From his twatter
    Curious- Howard was fun but was it great interview ? Everyone seems so in to it -- was it the fact he asked stuff no one ever does?


    Edit, Eh nevermind a few tweets later, he seems to have enjoyed it.

    There really wasn't a connection between Cusak and Howard, it was like they were on different planets. Howard kept pretending he was understanding what John was saying, but you could tell he wasn't really listening. And John is a real person. He wasn't going to let Howard just bulldoze his way over the facts.

    It's fuckin stupid to keep saying Howies a good interviewer. All he does that makes people think that is ask the questions about money, sex and who's an asshole that nobody else asks in interviews. Larry King COULD do THAT.

    Yeah, it almost seemed forced, which is a shame, since I'm a big fan of John Cusack and thought it'd be a good interview. Instead, it was pedestrian at best. It probably didn't help that Cusack doesn't ever want to talk about himself.

    I'm listening to the interview now in another window.

    I'm nine minutes in and it sounds like any typical NPR or PBS interview. Almost sounds like Marbles is doing a Charlie Rose-type interview. Except Charlie is a class act and a pro. You can be 'blue' and 'edgy' and still be a class act. Marbles can't.

    So far Marbles has gotten a lot wrong from the research notes.

    Other reflections: He sounds really tired. He's said the word nebbish two times already. Who the fuck says nebbish twice in ten minutes?

    Hahahah, just heard Cusack call him out on all his wrong notes.

    A TYPICAL NPR interview? those are among the bests most riveting interviews I ever heard. They actually have real facts and depth to the questions, not how much money do you have, how did your parents screw you up questions.

    Ah, joyceface, you are correct. Maybe I should have written something more like, "He's trying to achieve an NPR-style interview but is failing miserably". His interview is more akin to a Sanka when you thought you were about to gulp down some rich, delicious coffee.

    Thanks!

    I loved Richard's question about Cusack being approached by people saying "TWO DOLLARS! I WANT MY TWO DOLLARS!" :jj:

    Me and my friends ALWAYS say that whenever anyone mentions the cost of something being 2 dollars or whenever we see anyone delivering newspapers.

    He doesn't listen to any of the people whom he interviews. That's why, in the thread about the Rachel Maddow interview, I posted a link to Rachel's interview with the host of NPR's Fresh Air, Terry Gross.

    It's amazing to hear an interview done by someone who can ask a question, WAIT AND LISTEN for the response, and come back with insightful, provocative, follow-up questions/thoughts.

    Howard just races through the list of questions; he bulldozes, steamrolls through interviews. He misses everything and anything to which an interview subject might allude.

    Right. Over. His. Head.

    When he's not projecting his insecurities on his interview subjects.
