For our 80th episode, I talk again with Alex Steed, Lounging with LannaLee’s first guest. Alex asks us to be honest with ourselves. We chat about movies, FoodComaTV, the Knack Factory and showing the reality. Alex illustrates his geekiness. I confess my love of Stephen King, we discuss The Shining movie vs. The Shining Book, and we agree about Stanely Kubrick. Alex talks about blurring lines, and we DON’T reference Robin Thicke (I can’t believe we missed THAT one!) Alex documents real life, wants to avoid self-imposed restrictions, and likens FoodComaTV to a “Traveling Punk Rock Band.” And he answers 10 questions.
