2. If you could be worn by anyone who would you choose?

Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

3. Is there a person you’re embarrassed to admit you would like to be worn by?

The driver of a getaway car, fleeing a sexy cat burglary.

4. Do you have a favorite malapropism?

A decapitated coffee.

5. If you could style yourself, what would be the accoutrements?

A Vivienne Westwood dress, an Allsaints Lido trench, Maison Martin Margiela leather sequin booties and a Dannijo eagle  ring (worn on pinky).

6.  What is your favorite fortune-telling method?

Tyromancing. Throughout Europe in the middle ages, single girls would write the names of possible, future husbands on a piece of cheese. The name on the first cheese to mold was “the  one.” In your face Match.com!

7. Do you have a favorite quote?

“Apathy is the glove into which evil slips its hand.” -Bodie Theone

8. Do you have something against feet?

Ah, here we go… Look, they asked a question and I answered honestly. My opinion remains the same so, go ahead, ask away.

9. Is there  a kindred spirit that you just don’t get?

I’d like to preface this by saying any variation on myself is always flattering to say the least, however, sometimes we have to come to terms with the fact that somewhere along the way overzealousness might’ve taken over causing us to lose our way just a little bit. And now, the answer you’ve been waiting for…

1. When walking into a packed club, what’s the first thing you like to hear?

“Oowah Oowah!”

2. Is there a dance that you would like to see make a comeback?

The Electric Slide.  As far as I’m concerned, it is groupthink’s finest hour.

3. Overrated is?

The ability to say goodbye to yesterday.

4. What is a word that you would like to soon see retire?

Wanksta.

5.  Are you aware that “wanksta” was actually retired around nine years ago?

Well, considering I myself am a fresh take on a relic making a recent, yet gradual comeback, I consider it pretty forward thinking of me to assume the word was actually still in rotation, thus a top contender for retirement.

6. What?

Next question please.

7. If not you then what?

In keeping with the spirit of keeping it contemporarily real, a Kangol felt hat.

8. Who do you admire most?

Those who get lodged in sartorial time periods in addition to newbies with a taste for ironic fashions.

9. What is your greatest achievement?

The additional Velcro strap. Honestly, I feel like I’ve arrived.

ELIZABETH AND JAMES SCALLOP RING

In finger on February 8, 2011 at 8:15pm02

1. If you had to choose one Elizabeth in all the land, who would be your favorite?

Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Bennet. The woman knew what she wanted and settled for nothing less.

2. If you had to choose one James in all the land,  who would be your favorite?

I’m not sure if surnames count and it’s gonna have to be two. With that said,  I would choose Richard and Betty James. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the one and only…

If you’re like me, you’re dreaming of an eternal staircase right about now.

3. If not you, then what?

A Georges Braque gold ring.

4. Is there an instrumental song that you like so much you wish it had lyrics?

“Angela” or as some of you might know it, the theme song from the television show “Taxi.” Please note,  my names appear nowhere in the title, which can only mean I truly love the song.

5. Are you a lover or a fighter?

A lover. I know no other way.

6. Where do you see yourself being the most useful?

Um… let me think… In a bar brawl, most likely. Now, I’m in no way condoning violence, that’s obviously not the case considering I’m a lover, however, you asked therefore it was my duty to give you a hypothetical.

7. Can you give me specifics on your usefulness in a hypothetical bar brawl?

Well… I guess I can see myself puncturing something that would be very painful to have punctured, sending my opponent fleeing into the night. I say night because I can’t really see myself getting after it during daytime hours.

8. Is there something that’s not painful to have punctured?

Probably not. But I’d also like to take this moment to point out that, with me, you would be bringing along to your fight in a bar a sense of refinement and simplicity, not to mention sophistication, as opposed to what one would bring with a pair of brass knuckles or whatever other contrabandish-type thing one might choose to bring… to a fight… in a bar. *clears throat*

9. So let me get this straight. Are you now condoning your use in bar brawls?

I don’t really know what I’m doing at this point, to be completely honest with you.

ROBERTO CAVALLI FRINGED SUEDE AND SEQUIN LEATHER PANTS

In lower body on February 2, 2011 at 8:15pm02

1. What is the most interesting thing about you?

You can untie me on both sides. I think. There’s a fifty-fifty chance.

2. Overrated?

Controlled environments. Why, when you can be unleashed?! Unhinged!

3. Do you have a favorite quote?

“Stay brutal.” It was a bumper sticker I peeped on the back of this sick Jeep Wrangler with monster wheels.

4. Whose editorial would you commit a crime to appear in?

The question is, “Whose editorial would I not commit a crime to appear in?” I commit crimes in my sleep. Dude, we all should!

5. If you could style yourself, what would be the accoutrements?

Who’s that?

6. If not you, then what?

I’m likin’ this one! It would, no doubt, most def, have to be my baby, the Cavalli croc, ostrich and leather patchwork jacket .

7. Headbutt or Clothesline?

Shaahh?! Are you serious?! Flying headbutt, man! Here, let me show you.

8. Am I bleeding?

Nah. Well, just a little right there but you’ll be fine.

9. So… which is what in your what malapropismsismprops, would you wear you in, style how’s overrated then the day trip yeah with 7 beatles?
