Samuel’s Persiflage still set for September

I finally managed to record the interview for this month’s episode of Samuel’s Persiflage overnight, so it looks like we are still set for a September release…depending of course on how much sleep I need over the next couple days. I must admit though, the “not quite September edition” does have an interesting ring to it.

Samuel, I ask thou again, as with, no doubt, the overwhelming amount of fan mail and letters you get, it may have slipped by simply by leaving it as the sixth comment on an old thread:

What would it take to immortalise my fame and be interviewed on Samuel’s Persiflage? Would I be required to drive to Cheteu de Gordon-Stewart, because I’d be more than willing? We could talk about scammers, or blogging.

Clayton Northcutt.

Sorry Clayton, I’ve been intending on replying for the last few nights…I almost had time last night, but I didn’t get to bed until 4am…interview was at 2am, finished around 3pm (we started later than expected), and I was fiddling with the audio for a while afterwards.

Probably the best thing to do is send me an email outlining what you would like to talk about, I’m very interested in your idea of talking about scammers given your experiences with them.

You don’t need to come to Canberra…Skypre would be preferable (and would probably deliver near-studio quality), but telephone is fine. The interview I did last night utilised Skype…the quality was that good that I could have said that the guest was in the studio and had flown in from the US just to be on the show, and nobody would have known.

And yes, the identity of the guest is a secret for now, but I will give you a couple clues:

Male
Based in the US
Mentioned on this site previously

I do appologise for giving you such a hard time over not replying and all, especially given that you are running on minimal sleep after an 11 hour interview.

I shall send you an email very soon about what I would like to talk about. I believe some time on Sunday will be the most likely.

Thank-you for your response and consideration of this humble person for such an illustrious audio show.

Also, to venture a guess as to who you interviewed, did you repay the favour (and relive the great exchange that you two had) with Wayne Mac? If you have interviewed him it would, no doubt, be the greatest Persiflage in the history of Persiflages.

Clayton Northcutt.

Nope, Wayne only matches two of the clues. I would like to get him back in November when 2CA and 2GO celebrate their birthdays though.

I notice that Don’t Touch that Dial is still being adverstised on the top of this page. Are there still copies left? I thought that it would have been sold out. Is it on its second run?

I am all for the interview with Mr Northcutt about scammers.

How about an interview about SCANNERS ?

For example, can I still listen to the Canberra Police on an old Analogue VHF- UHF Scanner, or do I now need a digital scanner ?

#7 Comment By Loki On September 29, 2006 @ 1:43 pm

Why are you so interested in evesdropping on the police John?

#8 Comment By Samuel On September 29, 2006 @ 2:38 pm

To the best of my knowledge, listening to police frequencies is illegal…although plenty of people seem to do it anyway (I suspect a certain Dennis of it).

To answer your question John, I’m not sure, but I think a VHF-UHF scanner would do the trick. That being said, I do not condone such activity, and you do so at your own risk.

John cracks me up. Scammers and SCANNERS! Gold! Who would have seen that connection?

I would love to hear of Clayton’s experiences with scammers.

All this talk of police scanners got me thinking, so I jesse-rigged my TV antenna radio dish to the Optus B1=B5 satellite in an attempt to see what was happening crime-wise around the Kairnberra area. All I could glean, before an electrical malfunction shorted out the whole house, was that the cops were on the lookout for a brown Kingswood which was last seen kerb-crawling near a kindergarten.

I may have got a crossed wire though, there was interference from Reid.

#10 Comment By Chuck A. Spear On September 29, 2006 @ 11:14 pm

I loved the movie Scanners starring Michael Ironside and Directed by David Cronenberg.

John, I gather you are giving us a red herring. Judging by the photos of your “Shack”, you would know that the police now are dispatched via computer straight to their vehicles and have moved to digital freak.

Who is Dennis Samuel?

#11 Comment By Loki On September 29, 2006 @ 11:48 pm

Yes, I think a certain Theodore John “Ted” Kaczynski resided in a similar abode, also referred to as a “shack”.

#12 Comment By Chuck A. Spear On September 30, 2006 @ 12:16 am

If John starts to send exploding letters to Noam Chomsky then it is time for big rocks Loki.

Sorry I mean big bolts and ballbearings.

#14 Comment By Samuel On September 30, 2006 @ 12:26 am

Starting to cross the line there Chuck

#15 Comment By Captain Flume On September 30, 2006 @ 12:54 am

…over which you do not…

also, chinaman is not the preferred nomencleture, dude. Asian American, please.

#16 Comment By Samuel On September 30, 2006 @ 12:56 am

Wha? Chinaman? What are you going on about?

#17 Comment By Loki On September 30, 2006 @ 1:01 am

Once again, odd comments sure to place one on thin ice!

#18 Comment By Captain Flume On September 30, 2006 @ 1:54 am

Sam, to gain a greater insight into your own site’s comments, you need to wander down to you local Video Action (is that what it’s called in Kairnberra? Do you have Video Ezy?) and rent a movie called THE BIG LEBOWSKI.

I warn you sam, this movie has more swearing than Scarface, but, turn the sound down and the folks will never know.

It is by the Coen Brothers. They write movies and they are gods. In my opinion, this is their high water mark.

It is about a man, some people burst into his room, piss on his rug, and the man tries to get his rug back.

Sam, if you have an open mind and a sense of youmer, go get this. Now! Now! Nattie needs a walk! Go! Video Action! Go!!!

Dude it’s Smokey here….

#20 Comment By Samuel On September 30, 2006 @ 1:58 am

Yes we have Video Ezy, but I dare say Civic Video (not in Civic…funny that) is a closer walk by about an hour.

#21 Comment By Chuck A. Spear On September 30, 2006 @ 2:00 am

Just hide your damn rug Samuel.

#22 Comment By Chuck A. Spear On September 30, 2006 @ 2:05 am

What line? WTF! It is not my fault John Ted Kaczynski tried to blow up some linguist who is a gnome.

#23 Comment By Samuel On September 30, 2006 @ 2:06 am

I’m very confused

#24 Comment By Chuck A. Spear On September 30, 2006 @ 2:13 am

Samuel. Myself and the other posters on this blog (of whom I do not know) are quoting lines from the greatest film ever called “The Big Labowksi”.

Also, a man who lived in a shack called Ted Kaczynski aka the Unabomber sent letter bombs to bunch of people yeah?

Crikey!

#25 Comment By Samuel On September 30, 2006 @ 2:19 am

Oh, I see

#26 Comment By Chuck A. Spear On September 30, 2006 @ 2:22 am

Hopefully that put it all in parenthesis.

#27 Comment By Clayton Northcutt On October 1, 2006 @ 4:53 pm

Big Labowski? Greatest film ever? Does anyone else beg to differ?
