John and Marianne on 2XX – Talking the RiotACT

johnboy 8 August 2008 48

Well today we did the first of what’s intended to be a regular segment on 2XX Friday’s, a 5pm chat with the marvellous Marianne Mettes about the things that have excited you all in the last week.

An mp3 of the segment is online now.

Happy to take feedback on whether you want it online each week or to just listen to it on 98.3 FM each Friday at five (or not at all, as desired).

Good luck for tomorrow JB.

Unfortunatly I won’t be able to listen live as I will be down the pub with work mates. I’ll have a drink for you JB, and one for Marianne!

Hope you post it up once again

Enjoyed it JB. Please post each session.

2XX’s internet was down so the copy of talking points I’d brought in was the only one we had.

I apologise for a momentary lack of polish, beyond our control, from two people working together for the first time providing you with free amusement.

Anyway, of the ten minutes of the show I managed to catch (apparently my car is a target for aerial-snapping thieves, and 2XX doesn’t have any kind of signal strength through most of Tuggeranong), things seemed good…

Were the two of you working from the same page of notes, though?
At times Marianne and you seemed just a little bit chaotic.

I may have missed jb’s comments somewhere in the flamebait & flamewars.

But if you come to this site entirely fresh and then lurk for an age, some RiotACTers seem just a teeny bit strange.

LOL I had always thought that Jazz was a girl, and was Johnboy’s girlfriend at that…. I couldn’t have been more wrong!! 🙂 – a fresh perspective for Jazz to rename himself to Jazzhands.

*silent wipes off screen*

@Skidbladnir I think JB quite clearly articulates his sexual preferences in his bio (is that still hidden in the FAQ somewhere ?), but he’s reiterated it a number of times – particularly as either a church or a gay thread gets into the nitty gritty side of the RiotACT.

… As are we all.

Should I be taking out an AVO now or is it already too late?

@Vic:
I too had assumed Jazz and Johnboy were a couple at one point.
Then later on I thought they’d broken it off and now Johnboy and Kerces were the item.
Then later still I realised Jazz & Jb were male, but couldn’t rule out any conclusions based on my earlier assumptions.

Now Jb is posting things about wanting to see riotpins used for PA’s (“Not for publication as much as for amusement”), and having checked back though Old Riotact articles, he did occasionally post some rather bizarre selfpics where he looks like a poor man’s Zed Seselja…

I’m back to thinking Jb’s somewhere on a spectrum, but I don’t really know exactly which one .

Thanks Vic, he’s not really my type

Hey yeh, nice interview, even one of my comments got mentioned – the link to the photo of the camera for the google maps car! whoohooo!

And yes, Marianne does sound alright, and around my age. You sound pretty hunky too JB, only if I swung that way! :-p

I would love to have the MP3 posted, as around 5pm on Fridays I am either:
– Already out of town
– At the pub
– Riding home on my motorbike which doesn’t have a radio!!!

You also put some visuals to the voice and see Johnboy and Jazz on this video: http://the-riotact.com/?p=8329

Nice radio interview too JB, once you’d settled in it all went well.

Most enjoyable piece and JB didn’t sound one bit like a rat bag. And it really brings home to roost the growing role of “alternative media”.
