Beck has launched yet another section of his website titled “Irrelevant Topics” where he conducts interviews with celebrities. The final transcript is the conversational tangents and musings between Beck and his celebrity of the week.
Beck’s only previous interviewee was Tom Waits– this week however, Beck interviewed Will Ferrell. A seemingly random collaboration, Beck and Ferrell met over 10 years ago when Beck was a musical guest on SNL. Beck later performed at a Tsunami relief benefit in 2005 hosted by Ferrell.
You can read the full transcript of the phone conversation here. Any person who has ever had a free flowing conversation has had one like this. (I know Beck what did ever happen to Kudos bars the chocolate granola treat?) But, whenever you eavesdrop into a one of these convo’s you automatically roll your eyes and scoff, “These people are lame.” When you realize that the person talking is Will Ferrell you immediately think everything is profoundly funny again. And it is.
