Chariot: What do you feel most strongly about?
I tend to feel strongly about things. I get the joking “tell us how you really feel” reply a lot, but it doesn’t bother me because that is, to my mind, the most fatuous criticism possible. Oh no, how dare I have a passionate opinion and express it openly, sorry for inconveniencing you! So I guess you could say that is a thing I feel strongly about - that people should be allowed to feel things as much as they feel them, whether it is a lot or not very much at all. I don’t think it’s something I feel MOST strongly about? That’s a trickier matter, indeed. There are overarching trends but it varies from day to day. Today I feel most strong that, as I said to a friend earlier, “Samuel Beckett is an annoying navel-gazing boring fuckwit and everything bad that people think of in regards to theatre and literature is basically embodied by his self-obsessed sorry ass”.
Devil: What’s your worst vice/weakness?
So hard to choose, I have an extensive collection. I can really be startlingly hedonistic in my own rather peculiar way. In terms of weaknesses… inertia and indecision, a certain indifference towards causes and noble efforts and all that sort of thing. Lack of impulse control.
Judgement: Do you see yourself as a forgiving person?
I try to be. When people deserve it, that is. Then again, I don’t feel like people really cross me enough for me to need to forgive them. Maybe I don’t have enough data collected to answer this particular question accurately.
