Connecticut Post

Anne Szeker

Our hometown paper interviewed us over some tasty burritos and guacamole.

I liked this article. Make no mistake, the Connecticut Post is the worst paper I’ve ever read aside from UConn’s Daily Campus. But they took an interest in Tweed and sent poor intern Anne Szeker to meet us at La Salsa in Fairfield where we lunched on freshly made Mexican delights. Anne neglected to bring a tape recorder or prepared questions which resulted in some semi-manufactured quotes and innocent deceptions.

1 We have never met Death Cab for Cutie. We did talk to their manager just after they left the stage at Coney Island’s Siren Festival to exchange contact information so we could arrange an interview. Stay tuned for that outcome.

2 We rarely play frisbee. Rarely. (Bill does happen to live in the city where the Frisbee Pie Company was born which gave the game its name.) This interview makes it sound like we’re a bunch of hippies with nothing better to do than throw a pie plate back and forth. However, given the two Tweed-related frisbee stories I can’t fault Anne for thinking that.

3 Stewart actually made the remark about sneaking news into entertainment to combat news being watered down into entertainment.

4 Tweed is in fact covering its bills and supporting itself financially. We started it on a budget of zero dollars and have managed to keep it out of the red. It’s our own personal living expenses that require us to have day jobs. (Help us out with that.)

I could go on bit it’s silly. All in all it was a nice interview. Much better than the Fairfield County Weekly which stood up Bill on multiple occasions and therefore never actually conducted the interview they proposed.
