GlamcoverMTV: "How old are you?"
ME: "Twentysomething."
MTV: "No, really. Exact."
ME: "Twen-ty-something."
MTV: "What really pisses Victor Ward off?"
ME: "The fact that David Byrne named his new album after a 'tea from Sri Lanka that's sold in Britain.' I swear to God I heard that somewhere and it drove me nuts."
MTV (after politely laughing): "No. What really makes you mad? What really gets you angry?"
ME (long pause, thinking): "Well, recently, missing DJ's, badly behaved bartenders, certain gossipy male models, the media's treatment of celebs...um..."
MTV: "We were thinking more along the lines of the war in Bosnia or the AIDS epidemic or domestic terrorism. How about the current political situation?"
ME (long pause, tiny voice): "Sloppy Rollerbladers?...The words 'dot com'?..."
MTV (long pause): "Anything else?"
ME (realizing something, relieved): "A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido."
MTV (long pause): "Did you understand the question?"
ME: "What do you mean by that?"
MTV: "Aren't there things going on-"
ME (pissed): "Maybe you misunderstood my answers."
MTV: "Okay, forget it, um-"
ME: "Just move on to the next question."
MTV: "Oh, okay-"
ME: "Shoot."
MTV (really long pause, then): "Have you ever wished that you could disappear from all of this?"

- Taken from the book Glamorama, written by Brett Easton Ellis

Excellent reading.

"Victor, shouldn't we have a cause? What about global warming or the Amazon? Something. Anything."
"Passé. Passé. Passé."

This is my favortite book ever. I am on the fence about the film. avery did not do the best job adapting the Rules of Attraction. I think he is going to fuck Glamorama up.

Oh yes, an absolute fave read! The lists and lists of people and designer clothes are fantastic.
Next read Cosmopolis by DeLillo and 25th Hour by Benioff.
