Me In FILAMENT Magazine

December 8th, 2009 | photography, Work

The editor of FILAMENT magazine thought it’d be funny to have me answer several reader questions on the general subject of Etiquette. Apparently my written responses made her proofreader cry. The issue in question, number three, is out now (preview page) and can be purchased at this link here for a very small number of pennies for such a clever and classy-looking object.

And, before anyone asks: no, my piece isn’t online. FILAMENT are in business to sell copies of magazines. But I will give you a brief preview:

"At what age is it best to crush a child’s dreams so that they have an easier time stepping in to the status quo?"

You fool. You do not do such things to children. A child is like a poison missile you aim at the Future. You encourage, fund and resource their dreams to the fullest extent of your capability, knowing that your reward will be the pain and misery of generations yet unborn.

(Also in issue three: Gala Darling and Zoe Margolis. Not bad company to be keeping.)

  1. Can’t recommend Filament enough! Sexy guys across a spectrum of types, hot fiction, intelligent banter! And no diet, fashion, or celeb crapola (although if they could get a posed pic of Gordon Ramsay wearing nothing at all or a single piece of strategically-placed produce, I would send them a set percentage of my salary for life).

  2. Aww, thanks Threemoons and Warren!

    Libby Bulloff snapped this great pic of Gordon in a kilt demonstrating the art of teabagging – will that do for now?

    (Above statement has undergone minor truthiness loss whilst posting)

  3. Suraya–erm, nope, sorry, need proof it’s Gordon, but nice try and thank you for a giggle! :D

  4. ha – what an awesome lookin mag. might have to spend the pennies

  5. You know,

    “A child is like a poison missile you aim at the Future. You encourage, fund and resource their dreams to the fullest extent of your capability, knowing that your reward will be the pain and misery of generations yet unborn.”

    (or an abridged version) might make a very fine T-shirt of the week.

  6. People who go on about you being grumpy or offensive are, I can only assume, utterly blind to something far more important:

    You are fucking hilarious. And I say that as someone you’ve burned many times on Twitter.

  7. I’d like to suggest to my daughter’s school that they adopt that as a mission statement.
