New new interviews

Sdtrk: ‘Ice age’ by Joy division

So yeah! Fellow iDollators Wanda, the RealDoll Doctor, and I have put in an appearance in the printed press yet again. Yes, again!


It may look like a fake magazine cover,
but no, it’s real

The article, ‘Love Dolls’ by Brittany Douziech, was conducted with us all via electrode mail a couple of months ago, and the end product is actually rather inoffensive!
If you’re ever wandering aimlessly on the California State University Northridge campus anytime soon, grab a copy; it’s the Spring/Summer 2006 issue. There’s an online version of Scene Magazine, but as of this writing, the site’s desperately under construction. Hrm. One would assume it’s a work in progress..

Also, I’m currently being interviewed by a reporter lass working on a RealDoll-related article for publication in, of all places, the United Arab Emirates. Who’d have guessed?

    You guys are such cool pseudo-celebs, I feel righteous just being able to name drop you into my everyday pretentious conversations.

    Wow, DC, that is one *busy* cover, fer shure!
    Britt was pretty kewl, and I liked her story.
    I hope the UAE pipple do right by you!

    Hey guys,

    Congratulations! I hope that it is a good article (and from your initial preview/review, it seems so), and that perhaps the tide is turning, and more sympathetic rather than sensationaistic viewpoints might be brought out into the open!

    Nice to see that the Twittish Ones have grown silent, hopefully having seen the errors of their ways. Looking forward to reading it myself! Nice to see Wanda included in an interview that is better-reflective of her goodness, rather than the shite that is Marie-Claire UK!

    Best regards,
    PBS & the etcs

    PBS and ladeeez –
    Did I ever Email you the copy of the article? It’s slightly different than the one that went to print, I’ve noticed — the editors kinda shifted stuff around, as they do, but it’s still good reading.

    All told, apart from having to chase the writer down (she’s a full-time student — they’re in constant motion, like electrons. That is, when they’re not drinking themselves into stupors), it was a pleasant gig. Her questions were definitely more skewed towards iDollatry in a positive aspect., as she said herself that over the course of her research, she almost began to think of Dolls as real people. They do have that effect! Not that we’d know or anything. 😉

    Wandawanda –
    We both need more good press! I’m glad you liked the results!
    One down, several more to go! 🙂

    Our names are the sort that if you drop them, people immediately request that you pick them up.
    To be honest, I don’t know what that means..

    Speaking of magazines, the current edition of Tokyo Journal has a cover article on Tokyo-based Orient Industry Co.’s Candy Doll series. Recommended book Tabloid Tokyo, which offers the best from Japan’s gutter press with nothing lost in translation, also has an article on the dollmaker. I review the entertaining tome here: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/fb20050612a1.html

    Looks like I have to grab a copy of Tokyo Journal, then. 🙂 Thanks for the heads-up!

    Personally, I prefer 4woods’ A.I. series, as most CandyGirl models look too juvenile for me. But Orient Industry definitely seems to be the foremost Dutch wife manufacturer in Japan..
    Related: I’m sure you’ve seen this article as well. Seems like I manage to get the phrase ‘I’m sure you’ve seen this..’ into every other comment I make to you!

    DC: It means that your names have physical manifestations that qualify as litter when discarded publicly.
    According to you, I might get fined for leaving your nome de plumes laying about.

    DC, that Japan Times article is precisely the one I had in mind when writing the review of Tabloid Tokyo. Quite funny.
