COMMENTATOR: Good evening, and welcome to "Bring It On", a new late-night interview show that asks the questions YOU send in. Tonight, in the hot seat, we have Frank Prevatt, nationally known ranter, free thinker, and ideological warrior, also known as "Chaos Blackflame" and "Archmage" online.
FRANK: Evening, all.
C: Frank, I hope you're ready.
F: Well, as you say, 'bring it on'.
C: Haha, ok...our first questions come from someone identifying themselves as poisonous_vine.
F: Ah, yes...Hi, Jessie! Hugs to ya!
C: She asks, first, what your favorite song is.
F: Oh, man, you did get the hard questions, didn't you? I listen to so many different kinds of music, and have so many 'favorite songs', that I don't think I could narrow it down to any one song that tops the list. It depends on the mood I'm in, what I'm doing, etc. The furtheest I could narrow down would be to my favorite bands.
C: Well, go ahead, as that's her next question.
F: Hmmm...well, the top of my musical list is a tie, between Curve and Concrete Blonde. Though I'm still an old-skool rocker at heart, and I love Iron Maiden. OH, i could go on...but I won't.
C: Alrighty then...she asks if you could tell us a memory that always makes you smile, and one that always makes you sad.
F: Easy enough. I have only to think of the night that DIanna, my lady love and soon to be wife, came to see me for the first time after we'd started talking. It was an emotional night, a special night, and something that I'd never felt with anyone else. As for a memory that saddens me...that's a little harder. I've learned to detach myself and deal with things that were less than groovy, so rarely do those memories stick with me...but I do recall one afternoon that I got a phone call from my stepmom, telling me that my Dad had had a heart attack. He came through it OK, and he's fine now, but I remember being so scared, and so worked up, that I didn't know whether I was coming or going.
C: Powerful stuff. She goes on to ask your middle name.
F: OUCH! Man, I never talk about that...but in the spirit of goodwill, I'll admit it: Howard.
C: *giggle* Sorry...moving on, she's curious about something you have always wanted to do but didn't?
F: Climb into bed with Stephanie Seymour. No, no, only kidding...I've always wanted to travel to Scotland, but beyond even that, I've always wanted to live in Europe or Australia. Dunno when or if THAT'LL ever happen, though.
C: Interesting. She's curious as to what one phrase makes you want to hit whoever said it, whenever you hear it?
F: Well, I hate people saying that "life is too hard" or something in life they have to do is "too hard". ALways makes me want to smack the speaker, for being defeatist and blind. At the risk of getting the reaction I'm used to getting for my speech, I also hate people in trouble saying that "God will provide" instead of getting off their lazy asses and doing something about the problem.
C: I can see where you get your reputation. Lastly, she's curious to know if you had any one thing to do over again, why would you?
F: I wouldn't.
C: Care to elaborate? You've had a pretty checkered past, I'm led to believe.
F: That I have...but all those experiences and all those things make up "me" today...and I wouldn't trade that for anything.
C: Fair enough. Well, stay tuned, and after a brief commercial break, we'll return with more questions. You're watching "Bring It On".
