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.

Bee and Lanna talk about criticism, literature, writing and education. Bee explains why she dropped out of college and went to beauty school. Spoiler: they talk about spoilers, and why they each surround themselves with people who are easy to entertain. Bee goes back to school and she tells Lanna how it feels to have writer’s block. And she answers 10 questions.

Bee Round in her own words

Dilettante? Raconteuse? Can a woman be a Renaissance Man? Music, teaching, photography, writing, baking, collecting, musing… opining. Fame has never come knocking but I never asked for it either. Half the time I feel like I’m just tripping over all the things I’m interested in and and the rest of the time I’m apologizing for being such a hermit-nerd. I think “interested” people find themselves surrounded by “interesting” people and opportunities… If I had a philosophy for life that may be it… Be Interested.
