Molly Crabapple interviews Warren Ellis

Wenn Molly Crabapple ein Interview mit Warren Ellis für The Paris Review führt, kann das nur unterhaltsam werden. Wenn das Interview dann mit dem Satz „Somewhere, on an NSA server in Utah, there sits an email from Warren Ellis threatening to strangle me to death with my own intestines“ beginnt, dann bin ich sowas von sold. Ich hab’ das komplette (nicht sehr lange) Ding grade durchgelesen und das solltet Ihr auch tun, die ersten paar Sätze und die Jokes über Insektensex und American Food sind reinstes Gold:

Tell me about your information consumption.

This is going to be just another way for you to insist I listen to the sounds of insects having sex and calling it music while you pollute your apartment with the strains of some idiot with a ukulele wailing about consumption and sodomy.

We call that culture. As an Englishman, you wouldn’t understand.

What would you know about culture? You come from the town that gave the world the cronut.

Cronuts are tasty. As an Englishman, you wouldn’t know what that word means.

We have a joke in this country about American food. It goes like this: “American food.”
