|I would imagine the Tacoma Urbanist would describe as hard-hitting. Elliot's liberal bias was gross however.|

|Great interview! |
Electronic Elliot showed off his well honed interview skills and gets to the heart of the world of Elle.
A timeless Frost Park Chalk Off classic. They both look great with nice backgrounds for filming.
Key interview moments:
5:43 : Elle fires off political zingers. Elle states who she will vote for.
6:13 : Elle explains her etiquette rules.
Then Electric Elliot heats the interview up by quoting her bio back to her:
8:53 : Elle explains "chipped nail polish" and "spandex is a privilege, not a right."
10:11 Electric Elliot pushes spandex, Elle holds her own.
10:49 : Elle hates "political correctness"
11:37 : Elle's gives her personal message to the world.

|I'm just happy I didn't come off as a fool. I have the tendency to do that. And why in the world does that photo of me always come back to haunt me?|

|well rounded political correctness?|

Its a good photo of you Elle taken by Tacomachickadee who was trying to find an X men type photo shot. She did pretty well.
There another good one though shown on the video.

|Perfection! Outstanding work by both, and a beautiful vid. Vim. (Whatever.) Refreshingly honest and hilarious. More, please.
Oh - I also thought it was cool that mom ELLE now won episode 22, palindromically-speaking.

Today, Elle "dishes" about Frost Park, the Golden Melon and her interview in the Life of Elle:
Later in my Freshman year one of my friends gave me the nickname DATM. DATMAWIC was the long version. It means Draw Attention To Myself Any Way I Can. And it is so true. Have you noticed? You hadnâ€™t? You need to pay better attention (to me).
This spring I started participating in the weekly Chalk-offs in Frost Park. Some weeks I whored for votes on my own site and others I simply didnâ€™t participate. Iâ€™ve now won 3 times. The first time I won a pizza from a local pizza joint. The second is called the â€œlost episodeâ€ because there was no sponsor prize. Then, on September 5th I won again. I wasnâ€™t even planning on participating that week, but Joel decided he was going and I couldnâ€™t let him go all alone. I wasnâ€™t feeling well that day and almost bagged the whole thing. But I went and I won, without campaigning for a single vote.
What was my prize? First, a gigantic watermelon that was painted gold. Iâ€™m told it was delicious, but I donâ€™t eat watermelon so I can neither confirm nor deny that claim. But the bigger prize was an â€œexclusiveâ€ interview with Electric Elliot from The Melon. Of course shortly after winning our house became a giant construction zone so I busted my ass to fix things so he could tape the interview.
Last Thursday he showed up to do the filming. Lucky for the viewers I actually showered that day, and applied lipstick. Crazy, I know. I got the email this morning that the video was done and was going to be shown to the world today. In the spirit of drawing attention to myself any way I can here is the â€œexclusiveâ€ interview. Please note the following:
