Last night, while completing what I hope are the last edits to my dissertation, I stumbled across this…
Two twelve year old girls interviewing Tom Araya of Slayer.
Yes. You read that right. Slayer.
This has to be one of the best band interviews ever. My favorite part is when one of the girls asked him to name all of the Spice Girls.
This interview is pretty amazing because 1) it’s random and 2) the girls aren’t trying to be cool. They’re just asking fun questions.
This got me to thinking: What are some fun questions I would ask some of the heavy hitters in archaeology?
First, I would ask Lewis Binford how long it took him to make his forager/collector graphics. I believe he drafted all of these graphs out by hand on a drafting table. This must have taken forever, and I wonder if he enjoyed doing that more than writing the actual articles.
Second, I would ask V. Gordon Childe what he thought about his style. Because, if he were alive today, his hipster game would be STRONG.
How about you? What would be a silly question that you would ask a famous archaeologist?
