So, what’s up with this shirt? Is it inside-out or just dirty?
It’s inside-out; the designer's got a lightning logo that he uses, but I don’t like name brands. This is a scarf from the Chelsea Hotel, so it’s got different Tibetan prayers on it. A friend of mine gave it to me from an art show I did there. These jeans, this kid from Vegas gave me; they’re Jim Greco, like an old skater dude’s brand of pants. And these; my sister works at Bloomingdale's and she gets deals, so she got me the shoes. Oh, and I forgot the headband! Tristan Reginato made it. He’s an artist in Soho.
So everything that you’re wearing has been donated to you?
Is that your lifestyle? Do you dumpster dive?
No, definitely not.
You’re only a few steps away.
Not even close.
If you were going to go out on a date…
Dating is so American. That’s what my Icelandic friend told me. They don’t date in Iceland.
They just fuck?
Well then, if you were going to fuck someone what would you wear?
You would show up at their house naked?
Trench coat, then naked?
No. Probably what I was wearing the day before.
Do girls ever say that you smell bad?
Some do. I’m all about pheromones. And a lot of the deodorant is cancerous, and it stops people from having the natural smells that people are attracted to.
You dig the natural smell on women?
If I can smell a woman, and I like her smell specifically, then I like her. Flowers are nice. Patchouli is really bad.
You look like you would like patchouli.
I’m allergic to it; it makes my nose twitch.
