Interview meme, comment to be interviewed  
Interview by insomnius

1. How do you feel about no longer having musical taste that is super-compatible with the best musical taste in the world?

The Shins own my brain - next question.

2. When you're asking for these interviews, do you ever hope you don't get asked any particular questions/types of questions?

Anything that lends itself to sexual innuendo. Which is anything really, if I try hard enough. I'd love to check out some of your types of questions, if you know what I mean.

3. Name a hobby you're really really unlikely to take up and then tell me what you like about it.

I'm actually really attracted to the idea of setting up a really detailed model railway set. I love the idea of a little world in miniature, with moving parts (hence the railway). I'd love to make it look like the little town in Beetlejuice.

4. What's the most recent thing that has really surprised you? Pistachios don't count.

This has been answered in a more private medium, because there's no way in hell I'm answering it here.

5. Do you think you see yourself the same way other people see you?

Gosh no. I hate to think what people would think of me if they knew all my secrets. Maybe some people think I am a bad bad man, but I happen to know that that's true.

You know what I mean, you know what I mean, nudge nudge, know what I mean, say no more?

PS I also am attracted to things of smallness, especially ones that do things. I'd want a railway to be a little more like a roller coaster though I suspect.

I'm trying to work out if you are asking for an interview or not.

Either way, you're getting one.

1. What is the strangest book you have ever read all the way through?

2. Do you think voting should be compulsory? Why/why not?

3. Jean-Paul Sartre wrote "L'enfer, c'est les autres", usually translated as "Hell is other people". What, to you, is Hell?

4. What do people get out of pet ownership?

5. You can take an all expenses paid, one week holiday to anywhere in the world, where do you go and what do you do?

Re: ME, Me, me.
I'm assuming that means you want an interview.

1. Many musicians have died before their time. Which do you think is the greatest tragedy, the greatest loss to the music world?

2. If you could witness any one historical event, which would it be?

3. When he was asked the meaning of life the Buddha answered by saying “Life is pain.” Do you agree with this assesment?

4. Is Australia a racist country? Is it more or less racist than comparable nations in "the Western world"?

5. What's the silliest outfit you have ever worn?

1. It's possible that medical science may one day eliminate all the effects of aging and disease, creating a scenario in which, barring physical trauma, humans are practically immortal. Given that in such a scenario you could basically choose how long you want to live, how long do you think you would want to live? Do you think you would try to live as long as possible, or do you think you would rather have a more finite lifespan?

2. Do you ever have to stifle a laugh at the books someone is checking out?

3. What is art?

4. What is your favourite season and why?

5. If you could live anywhere in the world, except Australia, where would you live?

1. If you could acquire any one skill you currently don't have, what would it be?

2. John Lennon sang "war is over, if you want it". Do you think it is within the grasp of the current generation of humans to end war? Will war ever be a thing of the past?

3. McHappy Day: important charity event or cynical marketing ploy?

4. What do I have to do to get my own character in The Adventures of Chifley?

5. You have a time machine that can take you as far forward or as far back in time as you like. The catch is it is a single use item, and can't send you back. How far would you be willing to travel, and in which direction?
