To some, Exclaim!
is more or less the northern equivalent of Pitchfork, a free monthly mag for the hipster masses. But I've always enjoyed the way their Questionnaire page provides an often surprisingly clear glimpse into an odd array of celebrities' lives. This month's subject is Motörhead’s Lemmy
Some of my past personal favorites:
(How do you spoil yourself? "I’ll jerk off and just let it fly, I won’t get a sock or a tissue.")
(What was your most memorable day job? "Working on Pee Wee's Playhouse as a production assistant when I lived in New York, in about 1984 or '85.")
(What are your feelings on piracy, internet or otherwise? "Anything that takes the power [from] record companies means we’re gonna start hearing good music — they only give us what is gonna sell.")
(Current fixations: "No fixations. All I do is break shit. I like gambling too. I think that is an art.")
(What makes you want to take it off and get it on? "My old lady. If you’re gonna put it in those terms, you have to answer with a ’70s answer.")
Trey Parker & Matt Stone
(What has been your strangest celebrity encounter? "TP: I was at an Academy Awards party once, the year after I wore the dress, and Jennifer Lopez came up and shoved me and walked away. Fucking bitch.")
(Why do you live where you do? "Well, I live right next to my parents. I had a house built and things are goin’, you know, just fine.")
(What should everyone shut up about? "I don’t wanna hear niggas fucking ask me for fucking money man. That’s what I don’t want to hear no more. Magazine motherfuckers asking me the same questions all the fucking time, I don’t want to hear that same shit.")
(Given the opportunity to choose, how would you like to die? "Doing the thing I love most in life… mowing my lawn.")
*as a side-note, I find it highly amusing that Trey Parker and Matt Stone share the same concept of a visionary piece of art with Rob Zombie.
