Thanks to my incredible friend Isaac and his music blog, Born Loser, I got to interview one of my favorite bands, Cheese on Bread. My friend Casey and I discovered them back in high school and I’ve played their album The Search for Colonel Mustard over and over and over. They took a 10 year hiatus but returned recently for a new album.
Isaac knew how big of a fan I was so he reached out to them for an interview and then texted me a screenshot of their email accepting the offer.
“You want to do a guest interview?” he asked.
I almost screamed.
I’ve loved this band for so long. Their song Cornfields, Cornfields is VERY VERY MEANINGFUL TO ME, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I felt like this was the greatest honor of my life.
So obviously I put off doing the interview for months and months.
I was too scared. I didn’t want to screw this up. You know how easy it would be to come across like an annoying fan who is taking everything way too seriously? Very easy.
But I finally sent my questions. And they responded.
You want to know the craziest part? We had interacted once before, 10 years ago, when I was a nerdy super fan in high school. Of course, I remembered it vividly. The crazy part was, they remembered it too.
