Very Strange Time in My Life
About the artistArt curated by
Words from the curator:
Queue the Pixies , Where is My Mind. Our designer's name is not Robert Paulson, rather Lee Crutchley.
Tell us about this design:
Well someone described is as pseudo-3d which I quite like, so it's a pseudo-3d Fight Club spoiler.
Are you a big Fight Club fan?
Yeah I am and Chuck Palahniuk is an amazing writer. Although I watched it recently for the first time in ages and it seemed pretty dated to be honest. I guess in a strange way it just perfectly encapsulated the era that it was made. Well, for me it did anyway.
Any quotes or memorable scenes that stick out?
The scene that really sticks in my head for some reason is the bit where Jared Leto gets his face smashed in. And as I said, Palahniuk is a brilliant writer so the film is crammed with good quotes. One of my favourites is when Marla says "I haven't been f***ed like that since grade school."
What other interests do have besides t-shirt art?
Interesting ones hopefully.
Would you rather survive a zombie apocalypse or a nuclear apocalypse?
I reckon I'm gonna go with the zombies. A nuclear apocalypse would be rubbish, food and water would be totally screwed for one thing. There's also a good chance that if you did somehow run into a potential mate, you'd take off her top and she'd have ears for boobs. Plus Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland are so funny, and I can't really remember a post nuclear comedy off the top of my head. I guess it's only a matter of time though.
Do you collect anything, or at least have any OCD about anything?
I'm incredibly OCD about being annoyed by the fact that everyone seems to say they're OCD about everything these days. Other than that I seem to write a lot of to do lists, I'm still struggling with the doing part of them though. I gave up on collecting things when I realized I was skint.
Fans of any TV shows (old or new)? Why is it your favorite?
Far too many to list, my favourites are all comedy shows like Peep Show, Fawlty Towers and The Office. But I started watching Mad Men this week (I've just finished season 1) and am totally loving it. I'd love to live in a world where a normal day at work includes drinking half a bottle of strong liquor, and I'm sure I'd be more productive for it.
If you were to live in any world that exists in books/movies, which one would it be?
I was going to say Thundercats or Transformers, but that would only really be cool if I got to be a Thundercat or Transformer myself. So I'm gonna say Harry Potter, just so I could punch him in his stupid wizard face.
