Oh wait, how about an interview with Blake Butler
As if you didn’t know, Blake Butler is on the road with the Dollar Store tour that Featherproof put together. The following interview was conducted over TXT Msg, and I dunno, it might not be worth your time, but I liked hearing about the road hijinx a lot.
AR: What’s the high point so far (I’m interviewing you for html g.)
BB: All 8 of us partygirls throwin that ass down at 3am in some club on Bourbon St to Soulja Boy with red hurricanes and cash $$
AR: Nice. & how about the readings? Are you doing the same set every night?
BB: They’ve been pretty amazing turnouts. Great sized crowds in Austin and Houston. Set has been changing each night, most of us have several different items and stories, and writing new in van. In Nashville we read at the mall bookstore, that was weird.
AR: Ha, so PCole isn’t lying when he complains about the lit infrastructure in Nashville. What has been the oddest item so far?
BB: One of my items is a skull cap with $100 bills on it. Amelia has a three foot hair extension. Caroline has a plastic purple doorbell that plays baby music. Sometimes Aaron strips.
AR: Dang, he better get naked in Baltimore. So literary. Last question: who’s the worst driver?
BB: I barfed the time Mary had the wheel. Whether that was her driving or my pstill being drunk at 8am I can’t say, but the barf tasted like acid bread.
AR: I can’t wait to see you guys sat. I hope you get here early, there’s some amazing stuff going on in town. Thanks for the answers.
BB: Thanks for asking man. I am excited to see you again soon
