The interview with Henry Rollins was really funny and intense. The first part dealt with his TV show on IFC and how we loves interviewing passionate people and giving them a platform to talk about more than what they are currently plugging.

Henry talked a lot about his experiences with doing USO tours, visiting our troops overseas, and how he explains that there are lots of people like him that hate the war, but that doesn't mean we hate the troops.

He described his acting career as a way to make money, and he loves having the chance to act, even when he knows he isn't a great actor.

On touring with Black Flag, he talked about how they had to tell White Power people at their punk concerts that they completely disagreed with them. Henry miming the bummed out Aryans was great and sardonic.

Henry also went off on politics, claiming the Kerry gave the election to Bush by not effectively standing for something, and that the Dems need to get it together or McCain will cream us in 2008.
