The very fabulous TheNewGay.net has posted part one of a three part interview with Mr. Merritt. It's a very fun interview; I particularly enjoy watching the interviewer (Mr. Zack Rosen) beam with delight and excitement. And, of course, Mr. Merritt's bewilderment over strange noises (much like "forest sounds," for those of you who do get that obscure reference). Follow these links for part two and part three (thanks to Keith for correcting my idiocy in regards to these two links).
And, on reflection, this very well may be the single best interview with Mr. Merritt I've ever seen or read, no hyperbole involved. Mr. Rosen, despite his apparent nervousness, asks consistently engaging questions and gets Mr. Merritt talking about political and social issues in a way I've never heard before. Kudos to him.
Watch part one below:
It's also worth noting that The New Gay has previously interviewed Ms. Claudia Gonson.
