6pm Interview with Buttercup and LK
interview took place at 2AM in the morning. Buttercup and LK need to be well
rested for their work. Sleep is important. Believe me I’m a sloth. 6PM is a
more than reasonable time to G-chat with friends. Right after that ‘Happy Hour’
nonsense, before any night work can begin. Over the spring 6PM can be the ‘Golden
Hour’ the best hour of the day where everything is in a golden hue and the day
feels like it is cresting.
gives a shout-out to Murdoch and I. She must know Murdoch and I watch over
their output on a regular basis. While I can’t speak for Murdoch, let me give a
shout-out to LK in the form of a review on my blog, this very review. Panic
attacks poor LK. Panic needs to leave LK alone. Doesn’t panic know anything
about alt lit? That is disrespectful to attack wholesome Canadian-Englishwoman
LK. At least LK gets work done in the meantime, writing a 2000 word piece on a
bus trip. Bus trips are when I take a break from writing and simply relax. I
like seeing the country pass me by, country I probably will never engage with
on any meaningful level.
sits next to a business bro on the Boltbus. I’ve been there before. How do
business people end up on a bus? I get how I end up on a bus, I get it, I’m poor,
I mostly eat cans of beans heated on the old campfire. Those business people
are supposed to have it figured out; business people should ride Amtrak and let
me have the precious extra seat to store my junk. Feel it is bullshit that I
have to share a bus with people who are allegedly better at life than they are.
Whatever, Buttercup writes, LK writes, I write. Creation is better than cursing
about business deals on a $13 bus ride.
periods happen in many writers’ lives. Buttercup and LK go over their prolific
time over the summer. I remember it fondly; reviews came out every day of the
darn week about them. Of course I was the writer of those reviews, but still,
it was absurd. I’m happy to hear both of them are working on longer term
projects. Buttercup has a novella, LK, not to be outdone, is working on an alt
lit dictionary. Expect a musical collaboration between the two of them at some
point in the not-so-far-away future. Is there more to expect? Will an alt lit
wedding happen between LK and Buttercup? If they marry will they buy a house in
the countryside, with forests surrounding it? In the likely case that happens I
simply request a tree to hang upside down off of and sleep.
with LK watching Steve laugh. Laughter is a good way to end anything.
