Is it just us, or does that asteroid look bigger? Better get some more INTERROBANG?! Interrogations out before the End of the World!
Ricky Interrobang is still confused about how to feel about the sweet, sweet release of the apocalypse. So we’re subjecting another guest to the anglepoise treatment. ANDREW BLAIR writes things. Sometimes he says them too. He says it’s going alright, actually. Thanks for asking.
And here’s how Andrew answered our questions…
‽: So, it’s the end of the world. If you weren’t at Interrobang’s apocalyptic party, where would you be and what would you be doing? (Don’t be afraid to give us the juicy details).
AB: I’d probably be at home, not really doing anything. If the world was going to end I’d probably put the heating on.
‽: That should move things along. Without giving too much away, could you tell us a little about the inspiration behind the pieces you’ll be sharing with us at Interrobang?
AB: You guys came up with a theme and fortunately I already had a lot of poems about futility and disappointment.
‽: Picture it – all around the world, books are being taken and destroyed, except literature that upholds our new President’s literary sensibilities. You have the chance to save three books from this Reign of Terror; what would they be?
AB: The Handmaid’s Tale, The Crow Road, and Robert Pattinson (The A-Z)
‽: Pick a song or piece of music that you would have played as your personal soundtrack as the world crumbles around you.
AB: Halcyon (Beautiful Days) by Mono. Or if time is an issue, Girl From Mars by Ash.
We have all the time in the world (8m 09s)
‽: Describe, in three words if possible, your feelings on Trump’s Presidency?
AB: I am terrified.
Thanks a lot to Andrew for making us think that the end of the world might be a good thing, on balance. Come along and hear more from him at Interrobang’s End of the World Party at Woodland Creatures at 7pm on 21st January.
We think it’ll be a good thing, on balance.
