Interview – May 23rd, 2022
What is your favorite word?
Susurrus. It does what it means.
What is your least favorite word?
Unputdownable. This is not a word. I hate it.
What turns you on creativity, spirituality, or emotionally?
Cleverness, things that are funny *and* smart, like Letterkenny or Kids in the Hall. But also absurdity. Jackass is great. Why? I don’t know and I don’t care.
What turns you off?
Meanness, cruelty, punching down. I mentioned Letterkenny. It’s simultaneously one of the most foul and wholesome shows. The characters rag on each other and go off on topics that would make your grandma straight-up die. But there’s so much love and care with these characters. Same with Jackass. I just don’t understand hurting another person on purpose whether or not it’s an attempt at humor.
What sound or noise do you love?
That “wee-ooo” noise from Star Trek TOS. I think it’s the comm noise.
What sound or noise do you hate?
Any and all mouth/food noises. They make me unreasonably angry.
What is your favorite curse word?
Shitgoblin. I like to make up swears.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I would kill to write for pro wrestling. I’ve sort of started the process for doing that for a local performance group, but it’s not paid or anything. I want to book for the big leagues.
What profession would you not like to do?
Anything involving children or the elderly. No thank you.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I’m not sure. But I’d take a high five or fist bump.
