What one song would you say describes the world as you see it?
(Let’s get Moving) Into Action by Tim Armstrong and Skye Swetnam
If Grace and Sawyer were walking down the street, and they ran into you, what would they say?
Sawyer wouldn’t say anything, he’d simply wait for me to say something. But that’s okay since Grace would do the talking for both of us, probably a rant about how Larry was the best Stooge or that Bonnie and Clyde was a good movie that was ruined by the ending.
If Murphy's law affected you, what scenario would you see most likely unfolding?
If? I get no special dispensation from Mr. Murphy. It usually rears its ugly head around deadlines and freezing computers, but it’s been known to pop up when I’m due to make a speech or big presentation, often as a nasty shaving cut (on my bald head, naturally), a missing sock, hiccups or laryngitis.
If you could choose to eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Sushi. Specifically nigirizushi, which is basically raw fish on a ball of rice. I have been known to exist on it for days at a time.
Can you give us a description of FALL FROM GRACE in haiku?
Nice guy with no clue
Clever girl with lots of plans
Steal something for me
Thank you again for being here today, Charles!
Grace always has a plan. There’s her plan to get famous, her plan to get rich, and—above all—her plan to have fun. Sawyer has plenty of plans too. Plans made for him by his mother, his father, his girlfriend. Maybe they aren’t his plans, but they are plans. When Sawyer meets Grace, he wonders if he should come up with a few plans himself. Plans about what he actually wants to be, plans to speak his own mind for a change, plans to maybe help Grace with a little art theft. Wait a minute—plans to what?
