Interview: Friday Before the Monday 2013-08-16 :: Why Did You Choose the Greater Lafayette Area?

A tradition we have is to interview the campus patrons on the Friday before the Monday classes start. It is a magical and enchanting evening filled with stories of the summer, serendipitous encounters, and the hope that this semester will be more positive than the previous.

This particular year, we focused on asking people why they were in the Greater Lafayette area, why they chose Purdue University, and their impressions of the urbanscape.

A few things we learned while conducting these interviews:

  • Fast paced to slower paced environment.
  • I chose this place because of Purdue.
  • Major difference between Illinois and Indiana? Slow. Different.
  • Desperation.
  • Go America. Live for freedom.
  • Until we done, we turn up.
  • Brian Lamb is from Lafayette and people know this.
  • Recruiters like Purdue because graduates are so willing to move wherever they off them a job.
  • Home Owners Association of West Lafayette
  • If students are your main economy, you need to feed the economy.

We hope you enjoy the meanderings we had throughout the evening as much as we did.

Interview: Harry and Jake Speak Politely – 2012-01-21 – Part 2

News Channel Internet

After spending several weeks trying to secure an interview with Harry and Jake of Harry and Jake Speak Politely, we managed to conduct a short interview.

January 21st, 2012. A superb evening of music (High School Girls, Broken Light, Mid-American) at the Knickerbocker Saloon in downtown Lafayette. High School Girls finished their set. Broken Light was adjusting the stage for theirs. I bumped into Harry and asked again for the interview. He agreed. Jake showed up a few minutes later. This is the second part of our initial encounter with these two independent media creators, Harry and Jake

We learned that despite the environment, it was not too loud to conduct an interview, what Harry and Jake Speak Politely is about, their lack of microphone stands, preferred beverages, why names are important to the interview style of Harry and Jake, the enchanting power of television, what level Harry and Jake are on, and their love of editing.

We learned that despite the environment, it was not too loud to conduct an interview, why Harry and Jake Speak Politely was created, what happens when the microphone is turned towards one of our News Channel Internet journalists, First Amendment rights, how you find out about other people, how Jake influences Harry, Jake’s super smart phone, and Jake’s habits with a mobile Internet device.

This is the first installment of the series with these two independent media creators, Harry and Jake.
