A quick trivia question to get those little brain cells working this morning:

What have Jon Gibbs, James Gandolfini, Tim McGraw, Angela Bassett, Mario Lopez, Gary Sinise and Kevin Bacon got in common ?

Give up?

Okay, I'll tell you. We've all been interviewed by the lovely Dina Santorelli at some point in our careers.


When she's not working on her latest novel, Dina works as the executive editor of two lifestyle magazines for the military market (Family and Salute). Whether my name will one day join the impressive roster of big names she mentions interviewing on the 'About Dina' page on her website remains to be seen, but I certainly had fun answering her questions for the interview she just posted on her blog.

If you'd like to read the results of our little Q&A session, please click here.

If you'd like to commiserate with Dina for the sudden drop in the calibre of her interviewees, I quite understand.

Not at all. By the way, have you really not seen the LoTR movies yet?

The first one. I have all three on DVD, and haven't made the time to watch them, so the move, without the Internet, is the perfect opportunity, once I hook up the DVD.

I've read the books, though, plus others in similar vein, and still others by Tolkien.

So, you're not 6 degrees away from Bacon.

Meanwhile, I am quite please to be only 3 degrees away from Brian Blessed. And only 4 from Bacon.

Psst! Jon! I think Old Gran dropped in a line at the end of your post there. You need to keep her chain a little shorter.

Cool! Congrats on the interview. =D

I love the "the harder you work, the 'luckier' you get" line there at the end of the interview. =D

Thanks, Joan. I remember reading that line many years ago. I think it's one of those universal truth thingies, wouldn't you say?

Great interview, Jon.
Sounds like Old Gran's wisdom got through at the end. And, as usual, she's quite right! The harder you work...
Yup, sounds like something I heard during my childhood and young adult years. Hmm, they must be in the same club.

I think they teach that kind of line at Old Gran School :)

Fun interview, Jon. Much more to my reading taste than anything those whats-their-faces actors and singers and such would have to say. WaitAMinute, did you say "Kevin Bacon"?? As in: "Footloose" fame? Wow. Could you get me an autograph maybe? Ahem, sorry about that. My inner teenager took over for a minute there.

Thanks :) As for Kevin Bacon, I don't think I've ever seen Footloose, but I liked him in Tremors :)

"Tremors" was a hoot of a movie. I've never watched the sequels for fear they'd ruin it.
