2AM Interview: Buttercup and LK
are in full bloom this time of the year. Summertime generally brings a good
crop of interviews. People look back on what they did during the year and feel
satisfied with what they’ve accomplished. Typically these interviews are held
in person during the afternoon. I expect that Entertainment Tonight will
eventually interview alt lit members. Until such time, alt lit has G chat. For
those unaware, G chat knows no bounds. G chat is off all hooks. See that raised
roof? G chat did that.
favorite of mine. LK Shaw is a dear friend to me. Thus far I have only met
Buttercup IRL. At some point in the (hopefully) near future I will meet LK
Shaw. My limited knowledge about LK Shaw is from her career as a musician in
Canada. She has an English accent as well. Her accent helps keep her ‘classy’.
Feel British accents are ideally suited for alt lit. Not sure why this is, I
didn’t make the rule. It simply happened.
states in all CAPS LOCK that he adores interviews. With this interview we get a
rare glimpse into the minds of true artists. Chili hurts Buttercup’s heart. I
understand. Every time I see chili my heart stops. Think chili is truly the
food of the gods. Feel Satan cooks a mean bowl of chili. Satan’s bowl of Chili
attacks anyone who attempts to eat it. Be aware that if you see a mysterious
bowl of chili riding the subway say something. It is probably demonic and has
failed to pay the proper subway fare (via hopping the turnstile).
learn about Buttercup’s life. He sleeps on a futon like a true artist. Fish
surround him. Apparently Buttercup fishes too. The only thing I fish for is
complements. I’m a good fisher sloth. LK is a vegan. Buttercup is not. This is
probably due to the high ‘dairy’ product that is part of his brand. Buttercup
needs butter in his life for his brand. Without butter, Buttercup is nothing.
is Buttercup’s forte. At the tender age of 12 he made his first movie. The
movie was about looking for the bathroom in elementary school. It was an eight
hour long movie. From humble origins, Buttercup has ‘moved forward’ with his
tremendous movie-making skill. ‘Dead Midgets’ is his most recent contribution
to cinema. Watch it if you can. Note I have a small cameo in it as ‘random
shirtless dude #18’. It is a beautiful film.
talk about death. Death is the new life. Wonder what happens to our online
presences when we die. Can we leave our online presences in our will, giving
them to our children to maintain? Hope that’s the case. My online presence is
the best thing I have. Without my online presence, I’d be just another regular
dig this interview. We get a ‘rare’ glimpse into the world of alt lit minds.
None of these questions were prepared beforehand. I enjoy the ‘unedited’ feel
of the text. Read it. Enjoy it. Love it.
