Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Have you ever gotten up one morning and felt out of it, not drunk (I don’t drink) or anything, but just wishing for some more Zzzzzzs? Went into the bathroom one morning, took off the toothpaste cap and then put it back on. I thought I had put some on my toothbrush. But when I went to brush my teeth, nothing. I forgot to put some on. 🙂 The day still turned out great.

Look who has walk in.

Joseph Gordon Levitt. So let’s begin. 🙂

  1. You’ve been acting for 23 years, has the movie industry with the advancement of technology changed for the better? Are there any drawbacks?

2) How important is music to a) you and b) in movies? Does art reflects life accurately without having to over do it?

3) Can there ever be an over-saturation of innovative social media/new media? What make some grow and last while others lag and fail? What sets hitRECord.org apart from the crowd?

4) Does the success of a movie only depends on it making a lot of money? Is being a celebrity like a rose with a thorn?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Darren Hayes

Haven’t played Solitaire for two years. And so last Saturday I sat in front of the computer and played. You don’t need to know that I was 0-20. 🙂 And gosh, I was good at this game. Update. Played yesterday. 1-4.

Look who has walk in.

Darren Hayes. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) Are sales the only and most important way in defining the popularity and success of music?

2) You write your songs emotionally, are you ever afraid of saying too much? In the back of your mind, if a song’s for a particular person, do you give any thought as to what that person might say, their reaction?

3) Where You Want To Be is my favorite song. If there’s a best of album, will that be on it? How will you decide what to put on it?

4) If there’s a role on Star Wars that you can play, which one will it be? Why? If there’s one character that that movie could do without, which one would it be? Why?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Whitney Houston

I was in the mood to bake a Japanese honey cake, and I went to the store to buy some honey. “Oh bother.” Have the bees join a union or something. 🙂

Look who has walk in.

Whitney Houston. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) You’ve accomplished a lot in your career, and over the past few years went through some not so golden moments, do you feel that after coming from out that period there are new things that you have to accomplish as a singer and performer? With these things in mind, are you trying to prove to yourself and to others that you still got it?

2) Is Rachel Marron’s story over? If they were to make a Bodyguard 2, would you want to be involve in it?

3) What did you expect on your Nothing But Love tour? Were you surprised at some of the negative reactions? If yes, why?

4) Will we ever be able to hear again I Will Always Love You the way it had been sung in the past?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Michael W. Smith

Yesterday, I was in the mood to go rock climbing; today, I’m more lucid. 🙂

Look who has walk in.

Michael W. Smith. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) What do you say to those people who try to label God as Democrat or Republican?

2) Has the core of worship music change? Audiences taste have changed but the message hasn’t? Has it become diluted?

3) What advice would you give Christian artists trying to enter the mainstream market? What do you say to some of them who try and do drop the Christian label from who they are? Is it a big deal?

4) Does it do more harm than good when you see or hear some people who seem to live in this picture perfect everything’s alright atmosphere? Do you think that some give off the perceptions that the lives of followers of Christ are peachy?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Jon Foreman

I was cleaning up and realized that I sure do have a lot of paper stuff. Notes, mementos, old calendars, stuff from 1492, the year I was born. Just kidding. 🙂 It’s time to get rid of the unnecessary things. Ah life, we keep sometimes what we should let go. Here’s a I’m lost note from Christopher Columbus. If only he had GPS. 🙂

Look who has walk in.

Jon Foreman. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) There’s a line in your song, The Cure For The Pain, “We’re either riders or fools behind the reins,” is it that there are too many and have been too many riding fools behind the reins and that’s the reason for some of these “disasters” we face? Do you think that some tolerate the ride thus making it difficult to take the reins?

2) When it comes to diplomacy, are there too many or too little compromises? Do you think that countries have to be nag into helping, speaking up and speaking out?

3) Is music a way in trying to put some sort of understanding of the mess of life? Your inspiration comes from your faith in God, what you’ve experienced, seen and heard?

4) 2010, race relation in America, better, worse, or same? Do you think the message of demanding/wanting equality got twisted, motives perhaps changed? Is it the same Martin Luther King’s dream?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Jin Akanishi

So you’re in the shop for other things and you end up seeing a sign advertising sweet oranges on sale. You buy some and take them home. After peeling one, you bite into it, then squinting and smacking, you wonder how did they come up with their definition of sweet?  🙂

Look who has walk in.

Jin Akanishi. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) You’re now a solo artist, and your major interest lies in making it big in America, why? Do you consider it the mecca for musicians? Is there a plan B if you fail?

2) You have an aversion for paparazzi, do you sometimes feel insulated because of them?

3) Your music is going to be different from KAT-TUN, from other artists from Johnny’s Entertainment, is this on purpose? Will you go to any of your former group’s concerts?

4) Was this always your dream, and what was the reason(s) behind it?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Josh Groban

😥 They’re my team no matter what. They’re in a slump, but You’ll Never Walk Alone right? Maybe I can watch my recorded 2005 UEFA Championship League Final and see the glory days of Liverpool FC. If I pinch myself I’ll know that right now is just a nightmare. *pinch* No, no nightmare. 😆 Life’s not always a slump, remember that.

Look who has walk in.

Josh Groban. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) The marriages between different genres of music have been going on for awhile, is it a good thing? Should there be new categories created at award shows for such music?

2) You want to act, would you take on a role that’s not the Josh that the public sees, that they’ve come to know?

3) Is there a rock album in you, or is that strecthing it?

4) Do you use music to autobiographicize yourself? Is that a good way for musicians to do so, and do they leave themselves open to criticisms and conjectures?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.
