In a paper appeared on Journal of Humanistic Ethnocentrism, dr. Walter Garcia observed that your songs are "a perfect epitome of present-day symbolic intuitionism". Any comment?
Actually, I think that in his last essay printed on Texan Philosophical Quarterly, prof. Gary Lewis totally discredited that preposterous point of view.
Kristin, you seem to be always so radiant and full of life. Do you also have a dark side?
I do. Everyone has two sides. At times, when I bump into a so-called artist, my heart grows darker and my teeth chatter with fury. And suddenly, I fight a compulsion to obliterate her jeering smile. That is my amiable side... I let you figure out how my dark side is.
Present-day world seems exposed to ferocity and violence. What would Kristin Hersh do?
I think we can learn to face criminality from past movies, like "Brazil" and "Mad Max".
If there was a movie produced about your life, who do you think should play you, and why?
It's a no-brainer: Angelina Jolie. We were in the same scout troop (go Webworms!) when we were in high scool.
Which brand of toilet paper do you use?
I can tell you that I make my own exclusive brand. My personal toilet paper is obtained from the fibers of Schizocallis molesta, an almost extinct tree native of Atlantis.
Kristin, what’s your biggest defect?
Most people think I'm without defects, but often I drink ketchup from the container.
Kristin, have you made resolutions for the New Year?
Actually, I have some legal issues regarding my last contract, so to get to dough, next year I will be known as "Kristin Hursh".
If I may say so, Kristin, you are well known for your bizarre requests when staying in hotels. Can you tell us why and maybe make an example of something you usually ask?
Lately I've found that I can't stay anywhere without a tiger cub or mammoth jerky delivered every three hours to my room.
