New year, new interview

typed for your pleasure on 18 January 2009, at 7.41 pm

Sdtrk: ‘Arthur Cravan’ by Mount Vernon Arts Lab

Just a heads-up: my Texas-based friend Jaems, of int23.com, engaged me in a lengthy phone interview this past Friday, concerning being an iDollator (meeting new and interesting people with an interest in silicone partners), and life with the Missus in general (sometimes there is wrestling involved). Now the results of the interview are presented here, for your edification. For one, I particularly like the title!

How did your roommate react to you bringing Sidore home?

Steve, my other roommate at the time, was really laid-back and open-minded. Initially, when I started raising funds for Shi-chan in earnest, I’d half-jokingly asked if he wanted to contribute. He gave me a single dollar for the ‘I Hope You Don’t Buy A RealDoll Fund’. (laughs)

Give it a look! It’ll be something pleasant to round out the end of your week-end

    Excellent interview! You leave a large set of shoes for other Idollators to fill when it comes to representing our lifestyle.

    Reading your interview, I am amazed at how many views that we share of our girls.

    I’m sorry that you couldn’t make it to Las Vegas this year. 20 Idollators in one house, breaking bread and talking doll. It was as close to being at home with family as I’ve ever felt.

    I’m looking forward to having you over to interview with the French Journalist Anne Vial (my how things have come full circle) and myself. With luck two more members of the MI Doll Congress will be able to join us.

    And thank you for all that you’ve done! You and Sidore were an inspiration for me to get Phoebe, who’s changed my life so much for the better. For that I owe you an undying debt of gratitude.

    And, by the way, I am a world renouned Doll Surgeon. If Sidore needs work, don’t hesitate to ask.

    Thanks very much, sir! As I always say, I can’t honestly say that I represent all iDollators, but thankfully, a lot of us have very similar feelings about our Synthetik partners. To refer to them as being something as base as a ‘sex toy’ is insulting. That’s rather like saying that the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is just an awfully big mural. Glad you enjoyed the interview results!

    One of these days, I’m going to get round to an AVN show, damnit! Some influential people *taps side of nose* actually offered me a free pass, but I had no way of getting out there! It sounds like you had a blast, though. Twenty iDollators hangin’ out? Fantastic! And as we know, there’s nothing quite like being able to talk openly about our lasses with people who really understand where you’re coming from… Next year!
    At least there’s always the MI Doll Congresses & Parliaments to look forward to. Meeting up with Mme. Vial should be very cool. 🙂

    Finally, Shi-chan and I are very happy (and very flattered) to have been so influential to… well, your happiness, really. We couldn’t picture Phoebe, Penelope or Bethany with a nicer guy. 🙂

    Thanks! That was very enjoyable and one of the best doll-related interviews I’ve had the pleasure to read. Jaems did a stand-up job in getting all the right questions asked, and your subsequent answers were helpful as well as informative! Kind of like interviews are supposed to be, as opposed to… some others which shall remain nameless.

    Lily, and later on Eden, have so enriched my life that I can’t even begin to enumerate the ways. You (and Mahtek and Everhard) already know anyway LOL Thankfully, there are thousands more across the globe who do as well by now! Gratifying progress…

    But aside from those things, another element that proves (mostly) delightful is in “getting the word out” in quiet and subversive little ways so that they can be more easily accepted and appreciated amongst those of the more curious, fanciful, and imaginitive folks out there. (“Lars and the Real Girl” has helped a lot as well.)

    Along with the wonderful Elisabeth, Elena Dorfman also needs thanks for putting us out there with her Still Lovers book for which Elisabeth contributed the words for. Their visit was most likely the high point of my (and Lily’s) experience together. After one of our photoshoots I felt fairly scandalous running down the church steps carrying Lily like a bride, past an astounded elderly couple slack-jawed with astonishment!

    So much for “quiet and subversive”, I guess…

    And as you know, while I was researching the possibility of bringing Lily to “life”, seeing Sidore’s pic made me realize just how lifelike a Realdoll could be made to look, and sealed the deal. Since Lily’s personality and appearance were both already well-established in her novel, picking and choosing the options to replicate her were relatively easy. Having Joey as the face-designer was a definite plus! Kudos to him as well.

    Lastly, an unexpected plus was in making friends with you and other doll-owners who share the same interests, with such delightfully varying shades of diversity!

    Life wouldn’t be the same without you, AND your girls 🙂

    Gratefully,
    PBS, Lily, and Eden
