|| Q&A WITH GENERAL VICTOR GUERREMONDE REGARDING THE PANTHERS' DARKLY COMIC NEW CD|
As part of the AlienLove staff, I recently got the opportunity to do an interview with a retired US Army General!
A first for AlienLove.com and I didn't want to mess this up. The week before someone had sent a copy of the
Panthers new CD to our office and when we listened to it I just knew I had to talk to the general. |
I was told no pictures would be allowed to be taken.
I sat directly across the table from him and turned on my tape recorder:
AlienLove: "We're talking with Gen. Victor Guerrenmonde, US Army retired ..."
GEN G: "But NOT retiring!"
AlienL: "Which is how you got a part in the Panthers' CD,
'Please Rise Against OUR NATIONAL ANATHEMA'"
GEN G: "Three parts -- track 2, and 17, and 26."
AlienL: "Isn't it unusual for a general to do comedy?"
GEN G: "You've never been in a war."
AlienL: "But your shtick -- rape, torture, depleted uranium --
You say that's funny?"
GEN G: "You say it's not?"
AlienL: "Well, your perspective is, shall we say ... what's the best word ..."
GEN G: "Correct? My perspective is correct."
AlienL: "That's not where I was going."
GEN G: "Your mistake."
AlienL: "Seriously, what is funny about torture?"
GEN G: "Only a White House lawyer knows for sure."
AlienL: "Are there White House lawyers on the CD?"
GEN G: "You'll have to listen, and decide for yourself."
AlienL: "Like the election."
GEN G: "Before the election! You need to appreciate just how funny
it is to wage faith-based war on your own country."
AlienL: "OK, I'll get it."
GEN G: "You better get it! That's an order!"
With that, the General got up and left the room. Interview over!
I think I'll order my copy now!
