Ananas said:

Galene > yeah, that’s it! Poor Ben =(

Updated the post a bit .. looks like the full podcast (2 hour show) is now online! So I linked to that as well, for those of you who just want to listen to the interview. :)

Oh, and please don’t hotlink the downloadable version .. or I’ll be forced to take it down .. :(

Galene: The whole show was streamed live on their website as it happened. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to record it, just watch it, so I took some screenshots during the interview for the site. I don’t know if BBC is going to post the video version for those who missed it .. :(

About BBC posting the video, I don’t think they will… They don’t seem to do it usually, and well, with Ben being not so cooperative on the Hyrise subject… xD

Stephanie said:

Oh .. and cap 53, yes .. he was!! ;) LOL

That’s when they played Leading Me On .. hahaha .. :P

Ananas: I don’t think they will either .. but .. you never know! :)

Great interview – love listening to Ben! I was hanging on his every word – he’s so clever & articulate, even next to a novelist like Sebastian Faulks. Go Ben!

Aw – Richard just showed no mercy with the Hyrise thing did he – I almost felt sorry for Ben, he seems to find talking about it almost painful! Luckily Bin Bons was able to eventually divert the conversation to Killing Bono!

Galene said:

For all that I don`t think Hyrise is something so horrible and shameful. But Ben seems to feel about this experience like it is porno shoot or something like that ). A terrible youthful indiscretion that he regrets deeply.

I happen to like the Hyrise song, Ben! Don’t be so embarrassed! Though I’m not a boy-band fan, it’s a cute and catchy song and he has an incredible singing voice! One of many reasons I absolutely cannot wait for Killing Bono! I’ve been watching the trailer over and over again, and getting a better feel for the song he’s singing in the background…sounds wonderful!!! And I am a fan of eighties music, so there’s so many reasons to love this movie; Ben being the first and foremost of course! You know what I’d love to see next from you, Ben Sweetheart….you playing the drums!!!! Faint-inducing sexy! Me love drummers!!! <3<3

i am LMAO at picture #53

hahahaha i love you Ben <3 and im sorry that radio dj guy brought up Hyrise (although i will say i love "Leading Me On"!! :) lol)

Kimbers said:

I quite agree with you DW – as ‘youthful indiscretions’ go, I don’t think Hyrise is quite so shameful!!! I mean, he’s adorable in it & Seb is so right to congratulate him on hitting the high notes. As we all know, this boy can sing! It’s just a bit annoying I s’pose because I’m sure Ben would rather talk about the projects he’s proud of, e.g. Killing Bono – and to be perfectly honest I would have preferred for Ben to be given the opportunity to speak a bit more on that because that’s what I’m more interested in too! Yes, I love 80s music too & the whole trailer, including soundtrack is fab! And of course Ben would make one helluva sexy drummer-boy!

The interview is great, listening to some of it now but its very late – will listen to the rest tomorrow night. Great we can download it!

Oh poor Ben – he cracked some ribs! Hope the understudy doesn’t get a turn on the rest of the times we are seeing the play!

Thanks Helaine! Will check out the new trailer <3<3

Galene said:
