WA: Yeah. I'm actually really excited to get back and continue. We just moved in in November and are still having a hundred thousand things done to it. I'm not really pulling my weight in that department, so I'm expected to get home and get busy.

WC: Do you require a lot of input on those decisions, or are you more laissez-faire? Which of the two of you is more into that kind of thing?

WA: I think we're both kind of equally into it. I'm pretty into it. You know, this is sort of the first real-- we had an apartment that we owned in TriBeCa before, which was a great space, it was really big. We never really did anything with it, because we were always planning on doing something, and then we ended up moving out and buying this place. So this is our first real place that we're going all out and actually doing, and we're both very much into it.

WC: That's cool. So do you miss Toronto at all?

WA: [pensive pause]

WC: You can say no.

WA: No, you can't with Toronto, 'cause they'll hang you for it.

WC: They'll never know.

WA: Yes and no. I mean, I haven't really lived in Toronto for almost fifteen years.

WC: So you never lived here as an adult.

WA: No, I never really lived there as an adult. When you grow up in Toronto-- you know, I understand that, living in Canada, when you get to a certain age, you want to leave wherever you're from, like my parents did, from Winnipeg. A lot of people want to move to Toronto, so for me, by the time I was twenty, I wanted to move somewhere else.

WC: There was nowhere for you to graduate to, from Toronto. Unless you wanted to move to Vancouver.

WA: I guess unless I wanted to move to Vancouver, and I...didn't.

WC: I imagine after you've lived in New York, you can't even think about living anywhere else, ever.

WA: Yeah, I don't think you can live anywhere else -- it's such a great city. L.A. is kind of a necessary evil, but man, I love going back to New York.

WC: So being from Toronto, does the endless complaining about the rain in L.A. make you want to punch people, or...?

WA: Oh, yeah. Although I have to say, the amount of rain we got this winter-- there was a two-week span where it rained every single day. It got to a certain point where I was amazed. Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen it rain that hard. And the place that we have out here is in Venice, and it's got an aluminum roof on it -- it's really cool -- and it's got a really high ceiling, so it's like living in a drum. So I don't even have to look out the window. It's just like, all of a sudden I'll start to hear it. And for two weeks straight, I lived in this drum.
