Fun With Dick And Jane
Jane Magazine has an FOB (“front of book,” for you non-journalism types) feature called “The Same Five Questions We Always Ask.” The questions are definately tailored to rock stars, but in the absence of inspiration or time, I’ve decided to play along at home (or, truth be told, work).
Jane: When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
Benjamin Wagner: I ve come close a few times in the last few years, but don’t think I’ve made it to sunrise. So I’d have to say (somewhat reluctantly) October, 1999. I was partying after an Arlene Grocery show when an old friend showed up and kind of re-invigorated the madness. The sun was rising and birds were chirping when we finally stumbled out of Kennedy’s Pub. I caught a train to a show in Boston a few hours later.
Jane: Where’s the craziest place you’ve ever had sex?
BW: Outdoors, cars, public restrooms — pretty standard.
Jane: What word makes you cringe when you hear it?
Jane: If you were invisible for one day and could spy on a famous person, who would it be?
BW: My substantive answer is Al Gore. My vacuous answer is Jennifer Connelly.
Jane: What do you think happens when you die?
BW: I’m not sure. I’m betting nothing, but I’m hoping Heaven.
