Cartoon: Home Movies
Movie: Anything with Buster Keaton
Book: Hmmm, anything with lot of historical detail, or crazy fantasy worlds that are completely original…or time travel!
Author: Eckhart Tolle
Artist: Gustav Klimpt. There are soooo many, really, but Klimpt was the first artists that when I saw his paintings at a museum in Spain when I was young, I sort of imploded, and I think he was a genius! I know so much about him, its kinda creepy. I would love to have met him. Him and Abraham Lincoln…..oh yeah, not in a threesome kind of way….although…You know I kidding right? ….yes. totally kidding.
Dessert: Hmmm, anything lemony and tart and creamy
Cereal: Ew, cereal is sooo gross.
Fruit: Wild berries, especially the ones that make you hallucinate. No seriously we have a blackberry shrub in our yard, yum.
Soap: Girl what? Hmmm, Something with goat milk or olive oil from the Mediterranean where I can fantasize that the woman who made it has kohl rimmed eyes and is all super dramatic.
Sunglasses: Prada makes some great tortoise shell ones, but I wear a pair of Diors that I looove.
Sport/team: Waste.of.time. Why watch a silly sport when I can paint?
Animal: My puppies Coco and Moxie. But I love elephants, always have. A baby elephant will make me pee myself, also sea turtles. Can you even deal with how cute they are?!
City or place: Any place that has my husband, is my favorite place on earth. Aside from that, I would say New York makes me so happy, but so does (or is it do?) the forests of North Carolina.
Coffee or tea? Coffee, especially Turkish coffee. The kind of stuff that makes your teeth look like a Charles Dickens character.
first concert: Metalica! In a limo, with all my friends for my sweet 16.
Band: don’t have one, but I like electronic music
Favorite Musician: Raul. Ok, he is imaginary, but my husband and I invented this famous Tambourine Soloist one day when we were at a restaurant where the sound system was so bad all you could hear of the music on the system was the clanky Tambourine. He wears all fringed outfits, so they move around while he dramatically plays the…..tamourreeeeeen. He also wears eye linner and a lot of turquoise rings on his playing hand. Oh, and probably some high healed boots. His recent album cover features just him, mid jump, fringe akimbo and his tambourine placed strategically over his…instrument. He recently was on the cover of Rolling Stones doing a spoof of the Lady Gagga cover, but with old timey pistols…I could go on.
Tool you can’t live without: Well, I am tempted to say Computer, but if I am being totally honest…toilet.
Will you tell us a joke? Gasp! What kind of woman do you take me for! Jokes are for people with loose morals. How dare you ask me that.
Would you draw for us a sketch or yourself or pet? I have attached a doodle I made last night from a crazy glue stain…it is my alter ego. A hunched old…flea? With a bowler hat and cigar who has an aching back. His name is Horace (my alter egos are almost always old men) and he takes his tea with nothing because cream is for sissies.
