Entwistle Interviews Federspiel


It’s seldom if ever that The Other Newspaper can present something as sensitive and delicate as the actual capturing of what’s so rare in life, that is an offer of friendship given face to face.

“After admitting I have no friends and therefore consider friendship a truly amazing thing that I fully master and have a deep interest in because a true friend is a rare bird and not least after hearing a bit of your poetry and the lecture you just delivered in your garden to an unsuspecting and unprepared audience on YouTube which so far has 1 like, let me say I offer you my friendship.”

“This is a great offer. I can hardly breathe from joy and gratitude.”

“But we’ll start with me.”

“Yes, of course.”

“Yes. I have the pace. A nose for the right pace. I’m not doing anything hastily.”

“That’s very kind. Then you become a nice friend. Nevertheless, I decline. I certainly have not deserved it and I have something I need to do.”

“I understand that.”

“Well. Have a good day.”

“Have a nice day.”

“Hold on. What do you have there?”

“It’s a comet made of dust. It draws a tail of comet dust if you drop it.”

“OK. Cool.”

The purpose of The Other Newspaper is to give the public a new, disturbing and humorous reflection of the way we consume news on traditional media and posts on the social media that make the recipient question whether the world needs to change and whether one can live online.)
