<Stephanie> it'll be hard but Iíll try

<Delirium> New York here.

<Much Ado> Vegas, baby!

<faithacademy> Texas

<judyhazeleyes> beecee, canada.

<Jen> California

<Arien> New York here, too.

<EeyoreInThe100AW> Wisconsin

<Stephanie> hi john I'm from florida

<PeggyKate> PA

<lachanga> Deb from Texas

<andie> virginia, but in school in NC

<judyhazeleyes> goodness. the lone canadian.

<shellybell> FIRST QUESTION - HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH WYWO?

<johnbruce> it was sort of an accident - friends of friends thought it was a funny idea and the next thing i know i was taping an audition - i never really thought it would go anywhere. it was a bit crazy to be honest.

<shellybell> WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COMFORT FOOD?

<johnbruce> good question - since i like so many kinds of food - i'm a real foodie. i'd have to say soup.

<judyhazeleyes> eep.

<Stephanie> i love soup

<andie> yuuuuuum

<shellybell> WAS THERE A SEASON ONE WRAP PARTY AND WHAT WAS IT LIKE?

<johnbruce> no wrap party, but we did all have a good time at the daytime emmy awards which was near the end of season one. we have a lot of casual parties and dinners on the road.

<shellybell> WILL YOU BE DOING ANY OUTDOOR EPISODES THIS SEASON?

<Delirium> phew, thought we came to a standstill.

<Stephanie> me too

<judyhazeleyes> just breathless with anticipation as we await the next question, i suppose.

<Delirium> LMAO

<shellybell> sorry guys lol

<johnbruce> i've just done one that will air very soon - it was a blast.

<judyhazeleyes> oooh, nice. it'll be awesome to see what you do with an outdoor space.

<Arien> cool,, I've missed the outside eppies.

<shellybell> WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TRAVEL (VACATION) SPOT

<MuchAdo> can you tell us where the outdoor ep takes place?

<Stephanie> imiss peter and mayita

<Delirium> I'll tell you, this is a polite bunch of chatters.All afraid of me taking away their plus sign.

<louv2001> pssst Much, Toronto

<johnbruce> i'd like to take an entire year to travel. i'm super eager to go to asia. i've been all over europe, and i love bequai in the carribean, and i love hawaii.

<MuchAdo> lol,

<judyhazeleyes> man. toronto gets all the good stuff.

<judyhazeleyes> *west coast sulk*

<Stephanie> well u said it was precious

<Delirium> LOL

<MuchAdo> Cool travel spots!

<shellybell> DO YOU GET RECOGNIZED NOW ALOT AND HOW DOES IT FEEL?

* EeyoreInThe100AW keeps the trout in hiding tonight

<Arien> Asia's amazing.Especially Thailand.

<Stephanie> humm women throwing themselves at him how does he feel?

<johnbruce> i get recognized more and more. i was just recognized across the street at my local grovery store. most people are super nice and i enjoy meeting them - but sometimes i'm not prepared to be public (meaning i don't look so good), and then i'm happier to be anonymous.

<judyhazeleyes> hehehehe.

<Delirium> I would need to always be anonymous.Wait, I am,

<Stephanie> *hehehe*

<johnbruce> if i'm with andrew and leslie - it's really crazy - andrew is like a beacon for recognition. it's more fun when we're in a group.

<Stephanie> lol

<Delirium> I can imagine.

<johnbruce> we call our prep day DAY 0, followed by two shooting days DAY 1 and DAY 2 - DAY 0 is crazy - we travel in a group and people really notice us.

<judyhazeleyes> yeah, that'd be hard to miss ;)

<MuchAdo> Amazing that you get anything done on Day 0 - with all the mobbing

<shellybell> HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN SEMIOTICS AND WHAT IS IT?

<johnbruce> semiotics is simply the study of signs. it is an area of study at many universities. it's really just understanding symbols and the relationship of signs and what they refer to - so heady but really isn't.

<Delirium> sounds interesting.

<Arien> sounds very cool.

<Stephanie> like astrology? cuz i am so fascinated with astrology

<Delirium> or is it more the study of cultural signs and symbols?

<johnbruce> cultural signs and language etc.

<shellybell> WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE HOMEOWNER AND DO YOU KEEP IN TOUCH WITH ANY OF THEM?

<johnbruce> tanya coovadia of the sound lab in st.petersburg, fla. she's super cool.

<MuchAdo> what a cool, cool room, too!

<judyhazeleyes> oh, that was a damn fine room.

<Delirium> that was one of my favorite rooms!

<andie> i loved that room!

<louv2001> and what a cute baby!

<johnbruce> very, very pretty baby.

<Delirium> anyone who names their kid Darwin is cool.

<judyhazeleyes> i thought the same thing.

<Stephanie> i liked the guitar stands

<Teri> you did wonders with baby oil and food coloring

<shellybell> DO YOU ENJOY BEING CALLED THE MAD SCIENTIST OF WYWO?

<louv2001> and ribbon seal! lol

<Stephanie> ribbon seal lol

<judyhazeleyes> mad scientist. that's brill.

<johnbruce> andrew came up with that narrative about me - he actually asked if it was ok to talk about me at home shows and during interviews as the mad scientist, and i said ok. andrew is super funny.

<andie> haha

<Stephanie> *giggle*

<shellybell> DO YOU LOOK AT THE TLC BOARD AT ALL?

<johnbruce> i read the boards occasionally - especially since i know that the producers read them - we all respect everyone's diverse opinions. i'm not hung up by the boards - like "cut your hair...don't cut your hair" but i like feedback in general.

<judyhazeleyes> message boards can be incredibly scary.

<Stephanie> DON'T!!!!!!

<lachanga> <embarrassed>

<andie> very, very scary!!!

<Delirium> heh - lachanga SHOULD be hiding

<lachanga> lol

<louv2001> Shellybell, invite John to our friendly board sometime!

<MuchAdo> nah, it's cool that someone reads the boards!

<MuchAdo> yeah, we LOVE JB!

<Teri> yeah, we're not scary

<Delirium> we have a nice little home at WYWOnline.

<Arien> yeah, they even let me in.

<MuchAdo> well, maybe SOME of us are *cough Del cough*

<Stephanie> hes very popular there

<Delirium> do shut up, much ado.

<Teri> you're in trouble much!

<Arien> much trouble.LOL

<shellybell> WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A HOMEOWNER ATTEMPTING A DIY 48 HR MAKEOVER?

<judyhazeleyes> heh. maybe a full 24 hr sleep the day before starting?

<johnbruce> limit the palette - get rid of junk - be brutally honest with yourself - paint and fabric can go a long way - push the furniture around and see what happens!

<Arien> good answer.That's what I try to tell people!

<Arien> get rid of the clutter and you have a new room

<louv2001> and don't be heldhostage by your couch (I heard you speak in Toronto John!) LOL

<shellybell> JOHN - LORI HAS A WYWO MESSAGE BD AT WWW.EZBOARD.COM

<johnbruce> that's so true. i have to follow my own rules at home.

<Arien> me too.

<johnbruce> i'll have to check it out!

<MuchAdo> LOL, are you being held hostage by your sofa, John?

<louv2001> lol

<johnbruce> i'm just so burned out when i get home i can't do anything here.

<judyhazeleyes> mean bastards, sofas.

<Delirium> http://pub6.ezboard.com/bandrewdanjumbo - the full URL, John.It's a friendly place.No trolls.Except Arien

<shellybell> WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE DESSERT?

<johnbruce> really wet brownies

<Teri> just how wet john?

<judyhazeleyes> *laughs* brownie soup is my specialty.

<judyhazeleyes> not intentionally, however.

<Stephanie> gasp

<johnbruce> ok!

<MuchAdo> GGA is coming out tonight... can't hold these women back!

* Arien is insulted, Del called me a troll.

<Stephanie> you cant hold back GGA i told you del

<shellybell> HOW IMPORTANT IS HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE DESIGN ARTS IN HAVING A SUCCESSFUL CAREER?

<louv2001> good question!

<judyhazeleyes> that's an excellent one.

<johnbruce> education is super important - perhaps not specifically design school - but maybe art history, architecture, fine arts, graphics, color theory, or just travel - learning happens everywhere - college is good too, but all learning is most important - keep your eyes open.

<Stephanie> so true

<Arien> yay!Excellent answer.

<shellybell> ARE YOU MARRIED?

<Arien> There are good designer/decorators out there that don't have design degrees

<judyhazeleyes> *sporfle*

<Stephanie> *waiting*

<johnbruce> not married. came close a couple of times, but i'm comfortable in serious relationships that don't involve the law.

<MuchAdo> LOL

<Delirium> most of mine eventually involve the law...

<Delirium> oops.

<Delirium> was that out loud?

<louv2001> lol Del

<Stephanie> lol

<MuchAdo> yes

<johnbruce> that's funny.

<EeyoreInThe100AW> lol del

<Delirium> the stalker laws are getting so much tougher...

<Delirium> :)

<andie> hahaha

<louv2001> lol

<Beth> LOL

<Delirium> no no no.I'm not a stalker.

<MuchAdo> I'm sure JB appreciates tough stalker laws....

<shellybell> WHICH OTHER WYWO DESIGNER WOULD YOU SAY YOU MOST ADMIRE?

<johnbruce> leslie - ok, she's not a designer on the show, but she is a designer, and she and i are super good friends and i love her design ideas and craft.

<judyhazeleyes> much love to leslie.

<Arien> she's so multitalented.

<andie> yay for leslie!

<Stephanie> leslie looks so cool

<Teri> she's so cool

<andie> she's my hero!

<shellybell> WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE?

<Stephanie> i would love to do what she does

<judyhazeleyes> we have some serious food and beverage curiosity here, don't we?

<johnbruce> right now i'm drinking a beer and eating potato chips, but i like wine and vodka and bourbon - ok, i like most booze.

<louv2001> alright John!

<MuchAdo> vodka... yay

<Delirium> wine!YAY!

* Delirium is a winophile.

<shellybell> DO YOU HAVE ANY PET PEEVES?

<Teri> chips, yay

<Stephanie> he has earned points with this group

<louv2001> lol Teri

<Teri> lol

<johnbruce> people who feign unconsciousness - i.e pretend not to know when they know

<Delirium> ahhh..planned stupidity.

<MuchAdo> ooooh, mysterious

<judyhazeleyes> that was a helpful addendum. i thought you knew people who pretended to pass out on a regular basis.

<judyhazeleyes> i was thinking 'now them's some quirky friends'.

<shellybell> HOW IS DESIGNING MOVIE SETS DIFFERENT FROM DESIGNING A LIVABLE USABLE ROOM?

<johnbruce> what we do on the show is different from how i'd design for a regular client - why do it in 48 hours? but designing for movies and designing for the show is very similar - short time and small budget.

<louv2001> that invisible 4th wall is tricky to paint.LOL

<Arien> yes, but it can be papered.

<andie> haha

<johnbruce> who likes wallpaper?

<MuchAdo> with apple or banana paper, that is, right?

<Teri> I like paint better

<louv2001> I'm guilty of putting up borders

<Arien> only the really odd stuff in very small doses

<MuchAdo> only the really cool papers you find, JB

<judyhazeleyes> wallpaper can be alright... borders are terrifying.

<johnbruce> borders? shame on you.

<Delirium> LOL, chastised for the borders!

<andie> borders?blech

<louv2001> sorry.I'll sit in the corner now

<louv2001> lol

<shellybell> WHAT ARE YOUR GUILTY PLEASURES?

<Delirium> go sit in the border corner, LoriKia

<Teri> lol....you tell em John

<MuchAdo> shhhh, don't talk abt the stencils, Lori

<judyhazeleyes> *grabs the border-user cap*

<louv2001> (but its got a nice border)

<johnbruce> expensive meals, long taxi rides, days spent doing nothing.

<Delirium> Look!It's Lori Steave-Dickerson from Trading Spaces!

<Teri> There, there lori.....I'm sure it's very nice....

<MuchAdo> Expensive meals - my kinda guy!!!

<shellybell> DO YOU HAVE ANY NICKNAME?

<johnbruce> the WYWO team loves calling me MR JOHN BRUCE or JB. andrew sometimes calls me cousin brucey or undercover brother.

<MuchAdo> Cousin Brucey? LOL

<louv2001> we all call you JB on the boards....there is no other JB!

<Stephanie> i like mr.john bruce

<Teri> hey, what do you call andrew?

<Delirium> there's something so formal about Mr. John Bruce

<shellybell> WHAT STYLE WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN HOME AS BEING/

<Stephanie> i know i love it

<johnbruce> it's all over the place. the building was built in 1895 so there is a lot of wood trim and transoms and stained glass and hardwood floors, but the walls are in strong colors and the feel is sort of Charles Renee Macintosh

<judyhazeleyes> oh. stained glass AND hardwood floors.

<judyhazeleyes> i feel faint.

<andie> niiiiice!

<Stephanie> classy

<Arien> ooh, most be architectually AMAZING!

<archdrafter> Hi JB

<TroyNMarianne> Suggestions?

<Beth> hi

<archdrafter> Hi Honey!

<shellybell> WHEN DID YOU FIRST KNOW YOU WANTED A CAREER IN THE DESIGN INDUSTRY?

<johnbruce> i didn't exactly. i went to art school, and then worked in many different fields - music industry, photography, film, video, and some art direction, and then....

<shellybell> DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS?

<Teri> Yes, devoice him!

<TroyNMarianne> John ... you up for Drinks with two fabulous Vermonters and an accomplice named Byron in a few weeks?

<TroyNMarianne> We're fun to hang with.

<johnbruce> no pets or plants (except for one small bamboo plant - they're hard to kill)

<andie> not much of a green thumb jb?

<louv2001> if John can't, can I come!??Lol

<johnbruce> troy & marianne - i'd love to come up there for drinks!

<TroyNMarianne> absolutely louv

<TroyNMarianne> no ... we'll be down there!

<shellybell> YOU ARE KNOWN FOR YOUR LIGHT FIXTURES - HOW DID THIS START AND WHY IS LIGHTING IMPORTANT TO YOU?

<louv2001> road trip to NYC everbody

<TroyNMarianne> But the guest end is always available should you need another Vermont getaway

<MuchAdo> road trip!

<Stephanie> yeah!!!!

<Arien> I have a big loft - people can crash there!

<TroyNMarianne> But this time, the dogs will be here.

<archdrafter> The dogs will be bigger than JB

<johnbruce> big confession - there are still bare bulbs hanging from the ornate plaster medalions on my ceiling - why? becasue i haven't made any for myself and most of what i see in stores is awful. that's why i started maming lights on WYWO - lighting needs to be super fine, and i don't like settling for less.

<Stephanie> ok devoice him

<shellybell> Guys...

<MuchAdo> bare bulbs? in JB's house? no way!

<Stephanie> gasps

<Delirium> yeah shell?

<shellybell> We've got 15 more minutes - we'll just open it up for chit chat.How's that?

<Delirium> works for me.

<louv2001> watch out

<Arien> moi aussi

<louv2001> lol

<judyhazeleyes> i say we band together and make him some light fixtures worthy of john bruce.

<MuchAdo> only if Evan, Leslie, and Andrew come to help

<Stephanie> i'm game

<Delirium> I have some teddy bears I can rip the stuffing out of and insulate.

<Delirium> we can hang the bulbs from them.

<louv2001> I'll bring the ribbon seal and fancy paper

<MuchAdo> John, how DO you come up with your mad scientist ideas? Like the gummi bear sconces?

<judyhazeleyes> i'm sure i have some gummy bears.

<Stephanie> i'll bring the pleixglass

<Arien> bring the border, Lori.

<johnbruce> any questions?

<louv2001> lol will do!

<Delirium> Troy and Marianne can bring the dogs.

<Beth> we're using the gummi bear idea for our prom

<louv2001> that's cool Beth!

<andie> awww fun!

<Delirium> that's so cool, Beth!

<Beth> people thought i was crazy1

<louv2001> gummi bears everywhere are living in terror

<johnbruce> gummi bear sconce took me all day to think up. i was in venice and visited murano where they make amzing blown glass, and i wanted this effect in my venice bedroom but couldn't exactly blow glass on the show.

<Stephanie> JB when are you coming to fl
