I may not take you up into the doom building itself but I'll set it down in doom's lobby for a while."

The Dixie Chicks designated blogger, Junichi Semitsu, talks to the Washington Post.

The job comes with a few ground rules. Semitsu stays away when the Chicks are getting dressed -- "and I don't go into their bedrooms," he jokes.

"They don't screen for editorial content."
