Why I Do The Things I Do (Cause I Wanna)

You've become a bit notorious about some parts for being a man of controversy. Is that something you intend or do you think you get misinterpreted?

It's not either, really.

The very quick, flip answer is that I've always been a cunt, and I always will be. It's just that now more people pay attention to it, now.

The slightly more indepth answer (slight, very slight) is that I have opinions and my opinions are as valid as the next person's, and since I'm not stupid and I'm not inarticulate, I say them. I've been running my blog for about four years now and in the last year and a bit, the audience has grown a fair bit. I've no idea why--I have no control over that. I just go with it and see where it takes me. But, before my blog, I was upsetting people when writing for university newspapers, telling people what I thought about fiction, and in other places that I did things/spoke/went too. What I do on the blog is basically what I've done for pretty much my entire life.

The Ben Peek Show.

(There's more for that answer, but it's a bit repetitive. I got to stop reply to this questions late at night when I'm near dead tired. I regret not writing that it's the blood of children that I drink that makes me strong and allows me to be all knowing and powerful and realise everyone around me is wrong. I always forget the blog of the children bit. It's a bit like taking medication--you do it out in habit, and barely notice that you do it.

Still, the show goes on, and shortly after this, I gave out advice on how to get a girl at a bus stop to notice you.)

Is that, like, a mixed metaphor or something?

I need to quit working overnights....

(No, Ben, you can't have that thing that you said that you wanted to take from me back when we got together in Saigon back in '05, and for the last time, I'm not putting that on!)

But onward, I've been reading the bits about the urban vs. suburban with a lot of interest. Pray tell more.

i dunno. what else do you want? go int here and ask questions, man. that's what the thing is for. if people don't hijack it into their areas of interest, it's not going to get off the ground much more than it is.
