LAist editor Tony Pierce appeared on Ring My Bell a few weeks ago and was asked about blogging, censoring oneself, pot, and other random things.

Ring My Bell is an interesting internet/tv/call-in show shot on Hollywood Blvd. by World of Wonder. In the past they've had guests like Little Loca, Bobcat Goldthwait, and even the dude from PopBytes.

Basically they tape an hour of live calls and splice it down to about 5 minutes. Tony said he had a blast doing it, and he's not one to bs., as you can tell from his segment.

The MIDI soundtrack is cool too.
