"Why are you interviewing me?"

Hint Magazine has posted this interview with Stephin Merritt, wherein he pontificates about his fashion history and other topics in the realm of vanity.  While obviously it isn't the most insightful interview in the world, it's quite fun and features Mr. Merritt at the top of his game, wit-wise.  Quite enjoyable.  The interviewer is Cesar Padilla, who some may recognize from LD Beghtol's 69 Love Songs book, or as the photographer from Mr. Merritt's one and only naked photo shoot for Butt Magazine.


  1. excellent find. i had to look up Marimekko stripes; one should never wear those to the Eagle!

  2. Never been a fan of the horizontal stripe. Perhaps if I were a thinner lad...

  3. I won't be able to go through another christmas without The Strange Powers documentary.
