When you were a little boy, did you see yourself as a professional singer?
You think i've lost my mind! My imaginary friend and I decided that I would have become a dentist. But, you know, things don't always work out the way you imagined.
Do you know George J. King (a former clinical psychologist, now a fruit grower) from Hartford?
No, I don't, but my aunt has been briefly engaged to him. Then there was half a scandal about some unconventional photographs sent by phone to the wrong people, so their engagement came to an abrupt end.
Austin, do you have any superpower?
I can conjure the ghosts of recently deceased clowns, except on full moon nights. Maybe this is quite uncommon in tall people with English progenitors.
Austin, which is your favorite fruit?
It is called "Austin's gem". In the middle of one of my wanderings in the Atacama desert, I uncovered a little new tree, now named Holostylia algida, which every 12 years blooms and produces fruits whose taste reminds of peaches and tuna. It may seem disagreeable, but it's quite addictive.
Is there a deep moral behind "Mmm Yeah"?
O.K.! That fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life.
Who are your heroes?
Timothy (the underestimated cousin of Mark Twain), Keyser Soze, and myself.
You are always fit. Which is your secret?
I have devised the Blue Diet: in the month of October I eat nothing but blue foods, like blueberries, robin's eggs, blue potatoes and my special Smurf hash.
If I may ask, do you have any particular fear?
Oh yeah! I have acquired an unreasonable fear for mechanical typewriters, because of an uncanny accident occurred to my uncle. I'm also terrified by tigers, but that is quite normal.
