The Jay McCarroll Interview
Okay. So, now I feel bad.
You feel bad for her?
I never really considered that she may have some sort of like, imbalance.
Well, I don't know if she does for sure, but I'd say that she probably does.
It seems really obvious when you say it.
She's so clearly two different people.
Did you see her on the poker show?
I did. Yeah. Totally wild.
It was scary.
Making out with old men, winning-winning, by the way. She's perfect for poker though, isn't she?
They were frightened.
The whole game -- it's about lying, that game.
So, are you in Pennsylvania or --
I'm in New York now.
Do you live here now?
Well, how do you like it?
It's sufficient. [laughs] It is what it is, you know? It's exciting, I guess. I've never been one of those, um, "Oh my God, I've gotta live there. I love New York" kind of people. But... it's frighteningly tall. Yeah, the buildings are so high. And, it's dirty. And, there's too many people. And, I'm scared when I'm underground. Or above ground. But, other than that, it's great!
Are there any particular places where you see yourself living?
In the world?
Oh, I'd love to live in Amsterdam. I've lived there before.
So, I noticed from the show that you were in the drum corps in high school. Is that right?
I was in marching band.
I was in percussion, yes.
I was a saxophonist. [I don't know. I just thought there might be some interesting band geek gold to mine.]
Ooh. And you had to blow that horn.
I wasn't very good.
I bet you are now, huh?
I guess I've improved. [Did I just get harassed?]
And you played the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz?
How are you finding out all this information?
Dude, it was on the TV show. There were like snapshots of you.
Oh yeah. Okay. I was like, "God! What are these people writing about?" Yeah, I did play the Cowardly Lion in the high school play.
Okay, let's talk about the runway shows.
