I like words. I think I like words more than pictures. I dislike it when people feign modesty. I am an ‘artist’. I grew up in Bowen. I collect books; stories, zines, art books and recipe books. I am interested in cooking. I am a vegetarian. Animals are pretty cool. I do not like Wim Delvoye or Nathalia Edenmont for this reason. I enjoy seeing toilets outside of their homes. I am one of those enigmatic ‘clean hippies’, in that, I will fight about it. Amazing concept. I am often sarcastic. I think people like Colin Meloy are genius’ and anyone that calls them “creative genius’” can fuck off. There is no freaking difference. I love poetry but find it mostly boring. I think the search for creative accomplishment is to make art do what words do, and I won't lie, I am yet to find or make art that really does a fucking thing to my heart jumps. One day. I like things that are French. The word Dickhead makes me laugh. I love googolplex. I like beer and have given up on paying for wine even though the labels are pretty, it just tastes like shit, and nearly murdered my best friend. I hope to go to Glasgow soon and live.
