Interview 11

Interview meme time again. Comment if you want to be questioned.

1. Why wear do you black?

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times

(Johnny Cash, "the Man in Black")

Okay, that's not really remotely true.

I wear black on the outside because black is how I feel on the inside

(Morrisey, "Unloveable")

There was a time when that was true.

These days, it's a complicated combination of identification and filtering. I'm going to be weird no matter what I do - wearing black gives people something to point at. It puts off people I don't want to talk to, and catches the eye of people I do want to talk to.

2. What single fictional technological or magical device do you lust after?

After my dream a few days ago, 7 league boots - rapid transportation that still lets me get some exercise! I did some back of envelope calculations, and 7 leagues per stride gets me about 640 kph at a steady run, which is about half the speed of sound.

3. If you could ask an all-knowing being a single question, what would it be?

How can I love without pain?

4. If you could have a favourite artist or photographer do a picture of you, who would do it and what would the setting be?

Munch, maybe? Or Van Gogh? Something swirly and stark. I don't have the right face or body shape for a Giger work. "Favourite artist" is one of those things I have a hell of a time pinning down.

5. What should I have for dinner? (assume I'll go get ingredients)

Chicken curry with a yogurt sauce, mint-coriander raita, chana masala, vegetable curry, basmati rice and some naan analog (flatbread/"pizza shells" work well)!
