I'm weird. TV interviewees' living quarters fascinate me

Steve Schmidt has a lavish, luxurious kitchen. Beto O'Rourke has a modest kitchen with an ironing board in the background.
Jonathan Lemire has interesting framed silhouettes on the wall behind him. I just love seeing glimpses into talking heads' living spaces.

I love seeing the art and books they are reading in their homes or offices. Michael Bechlouss (sp?) has a regal library with a grand fireplace.

Each one is so unique.

No personality whatsoever. Bad lighting, no art.
Itís just so interesting. And, Iím so nosy.

talking head who stood too close to the mess he'd pushed (not) out of view to the side. I've also noticed some adding cheap junk to their backgrounds for color or whatever someone thought was needed.

I'm enjoying it and am especially interested in their tastes in art, or indifference. For some people I've even stopped the screen for a closer look at art and other possessions.

I had a huge crush on Mark Hamill when I was a kid and it's so fun to see proof that he has, like, a house. With a bed. And dogs. Like a human person instead of a Jedi. It just really intrigued me.

That provoked a rare smile from Schmidt.

I actually like his unusual rooms - they remind me of a Colorado lodge.

the rest of the panel's ceilings sadly boring in comparison.

54. Pretty sure, but ? Very high and wood paneled, seemed a lot more

historic NO than VA. Way too big and high for me, I like cozy, but I don't doubt they fill all of it. Heilemann's is nicely crisp and modern. A different style for living big.

I love Google maps and am happily snoopy from our own nest. Last week I was disappointed that I couldn't "stroll" around the village Kamala's Tamil grandfather was originally from, just land on photographed points.

Like Carville and Matalin, President-Elect Biden likes old houses and used to enjoy working on them himself. He renovated/had renovated the most ambitious, an abandoned mansion, over 24 years. He and Jill built their main, lakeside house (below) new in Wilmington, DE, though, and it's apparently where the basement he famously "hides" in is.

We have some folks from HGTV providing people with tips and tricks to make your home office more video friendly, appealing, cool, how to position the right camera angle etc etc

I haven't taken advantage of it, but many have and I have to admit their home office so look much, much more appealing.

65. We have a sportscaster on a local channel in San Francisco

who broadcasts from what he calls his vinyl room. He apparently has a huge vintage record collection and has narrow shelves made to display them. He changes them every time he goes on camera. He's getting lots of letters and sometimes he comments on them. Like he'll say tonight is Motown night or something like that.

69. Same here

Sometimes I get up and go close to the screen to try and read the titles of the books on their shelves.

71. Me, too. I'm obsessed with the white animal figurines (plus a yellow squirrel) behind

John Heilemann. Anyone know what they are? I get distracted trying to identify art! It's the closest thing to my obsession with treasure hunting I've got right now. Is that a totem pole in Steve Schmidt's kitchen? LOL.

73. I think the Morning Joe crew read this thread yesterday

This morning Lemire had changed his background. No more silhouettes. AND Joe made fun of him. Had all of them laughing.

76. I got the impression that Lemire himself created the silhouettes. Loved the dog ones.

74. Me too

I notice the details of their homes... many have pretty much 0 clutter in their home, or the room they broadcast from. It looks like no one lives there😹 it is so tidy. And no pets... my siamese was often sitting on my lap or shoulders when I did teaching videos last semester and I did them from my bedroom while recovering from covid pneumonia with a little table in front of a curtain to make it look neat 😹

80. Books on display.

Two commentators who have had their own books prominently on display (front forward) are Eddie Glaude and Philip Rucker. I'm sure there are others, but these two are the ones I noticed. I guess it's a bit of harmless self-promotion.

Love the dogs who wander in and out. Richard Stengel has a Golden Retriever who often is in the background, and of course Heileman's HUGE Great Danes.

One day, a little grandson of Dr. Redlinger who was speaking with Nicolle, came in and acted as silly as a 3-year old can.

81. I saw the Glaude display

ii guess I'd be proud if I wrote a book. I enjoy him because he's such a good interviewer and interviewee
