Who’s the best dog you know? What are they like?
I used to work at this streetwear/record shop called Foosh in Edmonton where we had a shop dog named Olive, she’s a super sweet English Bulldog that would headbutt you if she loves you. The staff always brings in their pups, my homie got this little guy named Murphy who is a tiny little baby I just want to hold all the time lol. Snuggly dogs are the best.
Cats though: my sister found this cat on a boat and named it Gilligan. It was literally the dumbest cat on the planet but had a heart of gold. This big, white, fluffy, durpy looking thing. It’d stand up on your lap and put its paws on your shoulders (kind of like a hug) and if it loved you it would drool- a steady stream of drool. So disgusting but it was mad cute at the same time. I was in Europe and I get a call from my sister (we never talk, so I knew something was up) and she told me that Gilligan got hit by a truck. Def shed a tear for that loss. RIP G.
What is the importance of space exploration in our society?
To put our existence into perspective.
Are you worried about the heat death of the universe?
Not as much as I’m worried about climate change.
Ideal contents of a banana split?
Sartre considered contemplation a luxury, do you?
A luxury is something that is unattainable to the masses, but everyone has varying degrees of time to meditate and reflect in their own manner. I think a lot of people (myself included) forget how important having honest conversations with yourself is.
Who is the first celebrity you can remember having a crush on?
JULEZ SANTANA. When Clockwork came out I died. That was game over for me until I started getting into Pharrell heavy. I had about 10 posters of him in my locker lmfao. Back when he was the essence of cool + had neck tattoos + made music for the streets, not soccer moms.
What song(s) do you define as your “anthem” or alarm clock?
“I Just Want 2 Luv U” by Jay Z and Pharrell is my jam forever. Alarm clock was Gangstarr’s “Work” for about 3 years, now every time I hear that song played out I gotta do a lucidity test lmfao.
Donald Trump is a tangible example of increased absurdity (aka entropy) in the universe, can you name other examples?
The economy/financial system. People don’t seem to realize that industries mature, The US Dollar Standard is arbitrary, and everything is cyclical (These downturns have happened ever 7-8 years for the past century. We live in a system based off constant growth, how is that sustainable? The economy needs to contract and people need to stop going crazy every time it does b/c that’s what fucks up the economy more. The most wealth is generated during economic downturns b/c smart people strategically exploit others’ entropy.
Also- cell phone charges in Canada can be described as increased absurdity. The 3 large providers are an oligopoly rates keep going up because “the infrastructure is expensive: although they lease their networks to new market entrants which should reduce the price (because usage hasn’t rapidly increased with the entrance of the new companies as the population is still the same), but the prices stay high. We live in a massive country and technology in the network often needs to be upgraded, but Canada has an 80% urban population and I don’t get why rates aren’t lower in dense areas. (This rant is dedicated to my $750 Rogers bill).
Name one scent and one memory strongly attached to that scent.
Waking up to the smell of caramelized onions cos that means my mom’s making some bomb chana masala for breakfast T_T
Do you think trends are accelerating faster than ever ?
No because people are still wearing bastardized tribal prints.
What gives you the right?
Being of-age living in a socialist country gives me all the rights any other Canadian adult can access. Being a female POC in the music industry should give me the same rights as cis-men, but that is not the case.
How do you make earnest connection in a world of instant gratification?
Sincerity goes a long way- real recognize real.
Can you write us a short poem
