What’s your Earliest Memory? I was four years old and I split my forehead open as the blood covered my eyes I pass out, and wake up to my mother’s screams as my father yells “take of the towel” and all I can see is my mother’s terrified face. Either that or when I caught my parents and their friends smoking weed. Now I know what they were smoking because I remember the smell more than the image.

When And Where Were You Happiest? When my kids are enjoying and laughing.

Tell Us 3 Secrets About You: 1. It’s not a secret for my closest friends and family but I have a very eccentric diet, I only eat: white rice, French Fries, fried plantain (tostones) bread, cheese, bananas, salad, pizza, pastries and dessert no meat, no fish. 2. I stopped drinking alcohol and smoking when my kids were born, the idea of them seeing me at my worst terrifies me. 3. I’m extremely insecure and I never present myself as a writer or filmmaker because I haven’t made my living in the field and people expect credits on a big show/movie or a best-selling book.

  1. I wrote a “Thank You” for what you do, Fan letter to Warren Ellis a few days ago. He let it slip if you respond to hos newsletter he reads them.
    (Embaressing, but i’d do the same to Grant Morrison if I could cause B&R saved me after my mom died & I was figuring shit out & Conan O’Brien did the same for me as a pre-teen when my mom just developed her sickness & my sister was a drug dealer)
