Q: I thought you were going to STFU about JG Thirlwell until HIDE came out.
A: Yes, but I got bored waiting and bought this instead. I liked it, and figured I should instruct you to run out now and buy it right away.
Q: Exactly how bored?
A: Well, while I was listening to it, I figured I’d draw a little picture of Thirlwell in Photoshop.
Q: You know that pic’s completely f***ing terrible, right?
A: Yes. I’ve never drawn anything electronically before, so I figured I’d teach myself to draw while listening to Ectopia.
Q: That’s some exquisite level of boredom. Pray, what possessed you to take up a new artform in which you have no experience and clearly not much aptitude?
A: JG Thirlwell is my muse: he makes me want to make things. Actually, he makes me want to hug kittens out of sheer joy whenever I hear the sweet, sweet noodlings of his creative brain. I need to buy a kitten just so I can exuberantly hug it. Only problem is that I don’t really like cats.
Q: I … see. And what does Thirlwell make of your obvious eccentricity?
A: Money, mostly. Buy this album, it’s very good.
