prayer or like the hail marys like like 10 times in a row, you don't even know what you're saying, you need to say it to make things okay. So like that's just going to breed like such insane feelings of patterns and habits that you feel like you, if you break the entire fabric of your universe will unravel. So and also there's a lot of fear, a lot of um imagine competition and stuff. Uh it's just, I mean I'm really grateful for it because it's made me, um, you know, a freak in a positive way. But I think if it hadn't been for the west coast, I think I would probably be bedridden had I not moved down. Yeah. Yeah. I think like if, you know, if I had, if I hadn't gotten into, like if I stayed in in Chicago and I mean probably the most likely thing that would have happened was I would have ended up in advertising. Yeah, yeah, because it was there and I worked in film production and it was, you know, that's what the genesis of most film production in Chicago still is is advertising. And I just, there's so many times, I mean I got, you know, I need to lose weight now and I think if I lived there I would just be like the fattest alcoholic on earth, just, you know, just because I wouldn't be, there would just be so much kind of existential dissatisfaction. Yeah. You know, and just and and also to I got to a certain point, I realized I need to leave here like just the kind of simple, you know, like all the winters, I think winters are just not good for the soul. I I do sort of miss them now, especially now that we're sitting in L. A. When it's 100 and fuck you degrees. Um But uh but yeah, I know, but I definitely, yeah, it was a Stockholm syndrome because when I first came out here, I was like, this place, the weather never changes, I'm just winner. And I went back to Chicago for like a march blizzard and I was like, oh, this is ridiculous. What was I thinking? The wind in Chicago? I mean, I mean everyone talks about that obviously, but there is a unique, unique terror to feeling that you walk in, you're downtown in a major metropolitan city in the winter time and you can't walk. Yeah, it changes your bone marrow after. Like if you have and you're completely concerned about windward and leeward and you're just like, like, okay, I gotta walk six blocks this way and then just like really dash in quickly on this block, you know, walking almost, you know, the like that Michael Jackson, you know, lean kind of thing, but the opposite way. And can you do that in Chicago? You've done that in Chicago, You've done the lien? No, no, but yeah, but forward, you have to lean like your put your center, your body's at the center of the weight of your body, like three ft ahead of you in order to just kind of keep your legs working. I've seen my friend buck when I go to Chicago to do shows, he comes with me and the way he moves around, he kind of uses his paws like kind of borrowing through the air as he, as he walks. And he, that seems to be how he's kind of managed it. It's wild to see people existing in those extreme, extreme climates. Yeah, it's like Montreal is the same way Montreal, You know, half of downtown is underground just when you go there in the summertime, you're like, wow, this is weird. And then you realize, oh, yeah, but that's because of the bad time, you know, like, you know, the seven months will be capital t seven months where your face freezes, I love how Montreal always feels like it's role playing is europe to me, whatever, which is what's fun, which I love. I love it. I like to me, it's like a more authentic Epcot. Absolutely, you know, and I don't, and that's I'm completely on board with all of that. I love Epcot, Like, I mean, certainly how should still even exist? But like, oh, I have no issue with artifice, I have no issue with artifice. And even materialism, I think is the negative impacts of materialism, I think are are a myth, because, like, I have a pair of boots that I got, actually these shoes right now, Here we go. When I think about these, these pink slide on Their big slides with three embroidered stars on them. That's right. And there are there are women's size 11 and I'm a women's size 13. So my ankle is constantly just in the mud when I walk around. But when I think of these, it brings me these have sustained a a fully and unless I'm really out of touch with my soul, I've been I woke up smiling thinking about these shoes for like at least a year now. Now you uh you you know, you talk openly about kind of your androgynous sort of aspects of your of your life and your personality and your style and look at me, look at me and like you do you you look like a I like a like a lion tamer from the Sonny and Cher Show
