name. Ed Halliday
1. what is your present state of mind?
Presently I feel very lonely/ashamed/hungover, but I feel like the loneliness/being ashamed are being amplified by the hangover so I’m not buying into it very much. The hangover isn’t that bad though, it’s the ‘still drunk’ type of hangover.
2. where were you born?
I was born at Group Health on 15th street in Capitol Hill, Seattle
3. where do you live now?
I live in Brooklyn, New York at the moment, if I don’t get a job soon I will have to leave and that would make me feel terrible.
4. where would you like to live?
Brooklyn seems nice, I would like to stay in Brooklyn for the moment. Maybe Queens. I would like to live in Queens.
5. do you think you’re interesting?
Medium-Interesting. I have interesting friends. Sometimes I feel like I’m compensating for how medium-interesting I am by having mostly-interesting friends.
6. how is your love life?
7. what were you like as a child?
When I was a child I feel like I was shy but like I feel like everybody says that about themselves. In the ~3rd grade I would get sent home from school b/c I would chew up the tips of red colored pencils, then mix the red ‘paste’ I made out of it with my spit. I would spit out a bunch of ‘mysterious red liquid’ and my teacher would be scared. I think I might have been scared too.
I lived in an old person’s home at one point in my life. From the age of [i can’t remember] to age ~7. One of the old ladies that lived there was named Peggy and she believed that inanimate objects were living things. I remember playing with starwars ‘blasters’ with one of the other kids that lived there, and Peggy kept screaming. Later she died but not because of that, because she was old.
I realized recently that until recently I was subconsciously glad that she’s dead for the same reason I would have been glad she was dead when I knew her. Which was that she would tell me not to slam my fists on the high keys on the piano because it hurt her ears physically, and I just thought she was being ‘lame’.
8. what did you eat today?
I haven’t eaten anything yet. I’ve drank a lot of smart water. The number of smart water bottles that seem to be showing up in my room out of nowhere has doubled since I went to sleep last night. I just woke up.
9. have you ever created culture or art?
I have created music and poetry, should be able to find it in the ‘links’ section of my blog.
10. do you like drinking alcohol or using drugs?
I like drinking alcohol and using [some] drugs. I feel bad re: talking about xanax so much on steve’s spreecast last night. http://www.spreecast.com/events/sick-fuck-2009-truely.html http://www.spreecast.com/events/sick-fest-2009-part-2
11. what kind of people do you hate?
I don’t hate any kind of people at all.
12. what are your goals, if you have any?
I would like to do voiceovers in cartoons
13. do you have any depressing stories about your life?
I suppose I have depressing stories about my life.
14. who are your favorite authors?
Jean Donaldson, China Mieville, Tao Lin, etc. I’m bad at reading, I don’t actually read that much. Seeing a lot of words overwhelms me sometimes and sometimes it makes me want to smash my head. I feel ashamed/mortified about it.
15.what will you be doing ten years from now?
‘Get busy livin or get busy dyin’
