Museum of Love

 

Inspired by Bhanu Kapil Rider'The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers, we ask Museum of Love twelve questions.

 

/

 

1. WHO ARE YOU AND WHOM DO YOU LOVE?

Pat  I am Pat Mahoney.  I love Roxane.

Dennis  I'm Dennis McNany. I love love.

 

2. WHAT HAPPENED IN THE MOST RECENT DREAM THAT YOU BEST REMEMBER?

Dennis — I saw myself standing in sun god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at me.

Pat — My dental work that I paid a lot of money for came loose. Big changes afoot.

 

3. WHAT OCCUPIES YOUR THOUGHTS MOST LATELY?

Pat  Money, money, money money, money.

Dennis  Finding space to make things.

 

4. WHEN WERE YOU FIRST MOST AWARE OF YOUR PRESENT PASSIONS AS A CHILD?

Dennis  The first time I got pushed into a locker.

Pat  The second time I got laid because I could sing karaoke good.

 

5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FEELING?

Pat  Smelling burning cutting oil and the sound of leather belts rolling over pulleys.

Dennis  Beer at Marlow after a day in the studio.

 

6. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE FEELING?

Dennis  Drama, drama, drama.

Pat  Pancreatitius.


 

 

7. HOW DO YOU FUNCTION AND/OR FLOURISH IN SOLITUDE VS. AMONG PREFERRED COMPANY?

Pat  I need a lot of solitude, but then I daydream too much. My preferred company is an extremely select group of people.

Dennis  I thrive in hermetic confines. When you work so intensely trying to create things that access different spaces where you can lose yourself, it can be a a difficult transition to walk out into a world of normalcy. Or a world of strollers and unicycles.

 

8. ARE YOU GOOD AT BEING UNCOMFORTABLE?

Dennis  Creatively, being uncomfortable can be a good place to be. Otherwise, I sweat a lot.

Pat  I'm not good at being comfortable

 

9. WHAT DO YOU IMAGINE MOST PEOPLE GET WRONG ABOUT YOU AT FIRST ACQUAINTANCE?

Pat  I mastered the art of appearing comfortable, but see above.

Dennis — Not being loud gets misconstrued in many ways, I guess.

 

10. HOW/WHO IS YOUR IDEAL AUDIENCE?

Dennis — Punishing light so bright I can't see.

Pat  All of the animals in the garden before the fall.

 

11. WHERE IS HOME?

Pat — The jump seat of a Prevost at 4 in the morning in Montana.

Dennis — Next to that girl.

 

12. WHAT QUESTION WOULD YOU ASK TO WHOMEVER IS READING THIS?

Dennis  Who are you - outta my hair [x4]

Pat  What do you think of the first Husky Girls 7"?
