If you could ask David Cross one question, what would it be?


Not nearly often enough, but on occasion Sub Pop staffer Lacey (the “genius” behind both A Form of Paying Attention and People Who Work Here) interviews the artists we work with and members of our staff for the world famous website. She frequently gets people to reveal deeply intimate truths about themselves to the entire online world, or at least the entire blog readership. Her interviews can get a little personal, but believe it or not, she’s actually holding back in some of these conversations. Anyone who’s met her knows that she tends to really let the invasive questions fly face-to-face.

Around the release of his most recent, most excellent album God Is a Twelve-Year-Old Boy with Asperger’s, Eugene Mirman gamely agreed to be subjected to her unpredictable line of questioning and he seemed no worse for wear from the experience. So with the new David Cross DVD/CD Bigger and Blackerer coming up, we thought we’d try to get David to participate in his own blog interview. We asked, and to his credit/our surprise, he agreed! This time though, we’re opening this up to include not only the sort of questions we’ve come to expect (and, to be fair, really very much enjoy) from Lacey (ex.: “Sometimes you say hi to me and sometimes you don’t—what’s the deal with that?”) but also some from you guys as well. Send us the questions you’re dying to ask David Cross and if we use yours, you’ll get both the satisfaction of an answer (or something like it) and your very own DVD/CD copy of Bigger and Blackerer, as a free prize from us.

We’re confident you guys can come up with some good, insightful, maybe even funny questions. Submit your questions on our Facebook page or in the comments below.
