Q2: Do you take it one article at a time? Is it a team effort?BA: The thing with column writing: You have to write one piece, then another, then another, then another, then another, then another, until eventually you stop. Heres what I always tell young journalism students in my ongoing attempt to scare away all but the diehards: lets you write the greatest column every written. Its perfect. Its the equivalent of writing the opening minute of Gimme Shelter. It changes lives. You did it.So, what are you writing tomorrow? Because that other column is gone, man.Also, yes, it is a team effort. I dont even write the headlines.Q3: Who is your favourite writer?BA: This right here is what they call a complicated question. Depends what you want: Columnist, features, novels, whatever. In sports, I could make a very long list, but I think the best columnist in North America is Dan Wetzel from Yahoo, who has such incredible instincts, and such a clear mind. I think the most powerful writer in North America is Charlie Pierce from Esquire. And my favourite novel is probably Catch-22.Q4: Is there such thing as tweeting too much?BA: So Ive been told. Q5: What the best article of yours we have never read?BA: Well, depends who you are. But I wrote a couple in university Im not yet embarrassed by: one about womens rugby, which was my first real feature, and one about a womens field hockey player named Jen Dowdeswell, and a couple others. If you havent read my piece about Acron Eger from 2008, that might be it. I still think about him.Q6: Have you inspired any good parody accounts on Twitter?BA: You want a parody account? This is a parody account. Gaze upon it. Its like a perfect oil painting. Q7: Other than you, whos your next favourite Bruce (excluding Wayne)?BA: I guess Willis? I mean, Die Hard alone, right? But my favourite B. Arthur is Bea Athur. She was a grand dame, she really was. Once I showed up at a physiotherapy appointment and theyd listed me as B. Arthur, and the ladies at reception were so disappointed when I showed up.Q8: While you were at UBC, did you ever meet David Suzuki? If so, what did you talk about? If not, can you make something up?BA: Why would I have met David Suzuki? I mean, I was busy, man. I did participate in the APEC protests in 1997 and nearly got tear-gassed, I worked at the student newspaper, I called basketball and football games for the radio station which had an old Coke machine that contained a million cans of beer and it was a lottery which kind youd get I met my future wife, all that stuff. The most interesting interview subject I sat down with was the novelist Thomas King, though. We mostly talked about writing. He was very patient, and great. Q9: What is your handwriting like?BA: Deteriorating. I can still pull out neat enough printing that my wife wants me to inscribe the Christmas cards, but my shorthand is basically runes at this point. Funny story: In high school Id walk by the typewriting class, which was a thing, and think, look at those suckers, learning to type. Why would I need to know how to type? Good call, young Bruce, you dummy.Q10: If you were to write a novel, what would the title be?BA: Novels seem hard. Like, youd have to think up character names, for a start. I think the title is probably what youd do last. And youd have to make sure nobody else had used it before. So I cannot answer this until Ive written a novel, which again, seems very hard. Q11: Can you provide us with one picture to judge you by?BA: Heres me as a young man shuffling cards under a tarp in the woods while smoking a cigar Q12: Can you go BarDown?Give enough unbothered time in my driveway with one of the hockey sticks we bought for the kids, sure. I prefer trying to get the ball hung up in the netting by shooting it under the back bar, but Im not sure theres a term for that, though.
