interview #14

interview with MONTGOMERY MAXTON

please describe an 'online interactive game' called 'Elderly Relative'.

hmmm. well. i'm just going to write how my last visit with my grandfather, aged 85, went. he is in a nursing home here in America and i swung by last night after leaving Christmas at my mother's for a quick visit. As I was turning into his shared room I was met in the doorway by him in his wheelchair. "It's me, Montgomery." said three times. "Oh yeah." "How are you, Merry Christmas." "Yeahhhh." He's kind of out of it from all his medication. He has, among other things, pnemonia. It's about eight o'clock at night. He is headed to the nurses station to get his blood-sugar checked, take his other medication, etc. "I just wanted to stop by and see you on Christmas. I'll be back this weekend." "Oh yeah? I'll be at the funeral home."

please describe yourself in the voice of a tiny child.

I's five feets nine inchez, hundred turdy pounds, my eyes blue my hairs ... mommy what color is my hair? bown. I like boys.

what is happening in your life right now?

I just finished lunch and had a Starbucks latte. My laundry is drying. It's the day after Christmas. In two hours and fifty-seven minutes I'm having a coffee date with a former Navy sailor. I may go to a club tonight. Tomorrow I'll be seeing a few movies and having a few more coffee dates. The same for Sunday. I am single for the first time in like nine years. I am prepping for my first major solo photography exibit one week from today. Then I'm flying to San Francisco where I'll make my second gay porno and hang-out with my beloved friend the artist Rene Capone and his friend the beloved novelist Flower Frankenstein. Also, I would like to point out, for those of you who are not attempting to do this, that it is hard making a living being a writer and photographer, even if you are well-published and have a cool name.

what are your 'hopes and dreams'? (please reply using sentimental language and cliches)

To find my Ashley Wilkes (aka Mr. Right). To start raising a child no later than age 35 (seven years left). To get married (to a man, so there is no confusion). To finally finish my novel that I've been working on for the past eight months out here in rural Ohio. To buy a BMW. To return to my flat in Manhattan with my Ashley Wilkes and Bonnie (can you tell I watched Gone with the Wind last night?). I also watched American Psycho, but there is something not right about referring to my Mr. Right as Patrick Bateman.

please write something about the online computer game the 'Second Life'?

So I just looked at the site. I'm intrigued. I think I'll sign up and find yet another online thing to waste more of my fucking time.
