11 Questions from Sophie:
1. What is your favorite band?
I’m going to give a shout out to some local love on this one and say Wheels. It’s a little-known band from Yellowsprings, OH. They’re all young and have some amazing songs. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of Fleet Foxes or Wolf Parade either.
2. If you had a time machine, where is the first place that you would go?
It’s hard not to toy with regrets with questions like this. But I won’t. I think I'd pop on into the future a few years and see what my life is like. Hopefully I'd get some peace of mind from seeing that everything will be ok.
3. Do you have any posters on your bedroom walls? What are they of?
Back home I have your standard Holly Golightly and Marilyn Monroe posters. When I was at school I had a printed cat on my wall because we couldn’t have real pets. His name changed daily. I also had some posters I purchased in Paris and a Die Antword photo I’d ripped out of an old Nylon.
4. Who are your heroes?
Meatball heroes. Yeah.
5. Who's your favourite writer/author?
It changes almost daily. But I do love Bukowski and Didion.
6. What's your favourite magazine?
I majored in magazine journalism, so choosing just one is a little hard to say. I suppose Vogue. Keep it classic.
7. Do you like Rookiemag? Do you read it regularly? Do you have a favourite Rookie post?
I do love Rookie, I think it’s a wonderful, real outlet for girls. They talk about real shit that’s not just relationships and makeup, but they don’t leave that out because we like that shit, too. I first found out about Tavi when she modeled for her sister’s blog (Fashbot or something). I was super into the Teen Vogue fashion forum. Tavi must have been like 12 and I was 16 but I remember thinking how damn cool she was, so I followed Style Rookie. That was that.
8. Which film makes you laugh the most?
This is tough because I find myself laughing at things that aren’t supposed to be funny. I guess Step Brothers or Airplane? I feel like I'm forgetting a different movie.
9. What's the best concert you have ever been to?
I went to a Matt and Kim concert in Columbus one time. I ended up meeting my now-best friend Helen who I lived with for two years. She’s so wonderful and made my college experience fantastic. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in crime. The concert was fun, but everything that happened that weekend is what made it so great. Close seconds: Girl Talk when my friends dressed up in a shark costume and beard or N*SYNC (twice!).
10. If you could be in any TV series what series would it be and why?
I would love to be in Mad Men because of the clothes. But I’d have to be some badass superwoman, go-getter like Peggy.
