How do you feel right now?

 

Overwhelmed, a lot of projects going on, trying to take care of a 4 month old puppy and redo my kitchen

 

If you could wake up in a different place tomorrow morning, where would it be and what would you do?

 

I would probably wake up at Woodstock just in time to hear Jimi Hendrix play the nation anthem. Then transport back home right after so I didn’t have to stand in the mud with all those dirty hippies.

 

If you lost your creative skill, how would you see yourself making a living?

 

Probably digging ditches.


If you could punch one living contemporary artist, who would it be?

 

--

 

Was your first kiss worth writing a song about?

 

Probably not worth talking about for this question.

 

At what point were you particularly happy?

 

I ate a croissant earlier today that made me pretty happy.

 

No regrets allowed, but there must have been one?

 

I regret not getting two croissants this morning.

What trait do your friends have in common?

 

beer
 

If you had to evacuate your home or studio, what's the one thing you would grab?

When you blow out birthday candles, what do you wish for?

 

I wish there is ice cream to go along with this cake.


If you could play a character from a favorite film or TV show for a day, who would it be?

 

The Incredible Hulk for sure.


Do you ever lie?

 

no

 

Do you think viewers understand the intent of your work?

 

I don’t think I know the intent of my work, but if viewers do, I’d like to know what they are thinking.

 

What virtue can you do without?

 

I googled virtue and got a long list from wikipedia. Flexibility has to be a pretty lame virtue.

 

Do you even notice when you're swearing?

 

Huh?

What has been your proudest moment?

 

I replaced the light switch in our living room and installed a dimmer. That was pretty awesome.

 

What would you like to be remembered for?

 

My hair.
