5 questions from dan4th
1. What medium are you most comfortable with?
I'm going to assume this is creating, rather than consuming.
I default to comics that are black pen on white paper. I have done this the longest (15 years?) and I think this is the easiest thing to work with, it's simple and doesn't take a lot of time. Collage is comfortable in a lot of ways because there isn't the problem of not being able to draw very well, but it takes a lot of searching through old magazines and being frustrated at not coming up with exactly what's in my head. Acrylic paint is comfortable because I do abtract stuff that's not trying to get anything across.
Also, I like cooking. I'm okay with fucking up and experimenting with whatever's around, and the evidence is quickly destroyed in most cases. I'm so okay with it that I don't tend to think about it much now, although this wasn't true 2 years ago. I think having to do it helps with the comfort level, get better or be horribly horribly bored.
2. What was the last time you went to a live show?
Shit. What's coming to mind is Camper Van Beethoven last fall, but the girls' night thing whose name I can't remember was last summer and there's almost certainly something between then and now. I know I haven't been to a show since moving here, which needs changing.
3. Is there any subject that makes you so angry you can't even discuss it?
There are definitely people whose takes on things make me so mad I can't talk to them, which is not the same thing, but subjects... uh. I'd say getting blamed for the police shooting me, though I've had to do that in court (it really, really sucked). In general I have a huge problem with being blamed for things that are clearly not my fault or have nothing to do with me. Most political views I think are incredibly stupid or cruel I make fun of or deconstruct, but there are probably exceptions. There are a couple areas of law I plan to stay out of because I can't see the argument for the other side, which is kind of related but probably not exactly.
4. Are vampires or ninjas cooler?
I'm going to say vampires because I'll watch pretty much any vampire movie ever, and the same is not true of martial arts films.
5. Do you dance?
If you want 5 questions, say so. If you want to ask 5, do it.
