|WHIPPLE INTERVIEWS WHIPPLE...
WHIPPLE : You have been described as blues, "alt." country, folk, among others. What kind of music do you play?
WHIPPLE: So... Do you feel you have an identity problem?
WHIPPLE: Yes... In fact, every other year or so I have to get really fuckin' drunk, shave my head, change my name, and move to another state.
WHIPPLE: So, after moving ten times in ten years, do you feel you're getting closer to being who you want to be?
WHIPPLE: No... Each time I get more embarrassing.
WHIPPLE: You write songs about being drunk, broke, and lonely. Is it because you have low self esteem?
WHIPPLE: No... I am really good at being a loser. Besides there's too much competition among musicians hyping themselves and bragging about how great they are. We're flooded with so much fuckin' hype these days its a wonder we can step outside without hip boots and a gasmask. There's less competition in bragging about how much you suck.
WHIPPLE: Are you saying that you're not up to the competition?
WHIPPLE: No, like I said, I am really good at being a loser.
WHIPPLE: Your songs are always so sad and angry- even tragic. Why don't you write something happy?
WHIPPLE: Happy music makes me angry and miserable.
WHIPPLE: What's your secret with women?
WHIPPLE: Make them laugh so don't realise how miserable of a time they're having with you.
WHIPPLE: That's good. So why are such a failure with women?
WHIPPLE: They just don't get it.
WHIPPLE: You wrote a song called "Heaven's Full of Assholes". So what do you think of God?
WHIPPLE: He's either pure evil or a reckless drunk.
WHIPPLE: Where the hell are you shoes?
WHIPPLE: I left them or they left me. I don't miss them much.
WHIPPLE: So now you're barefoot? Are you nuts?
WHIPPLE: Shoes are overrated. Besides, I save a lot of money by being kicked out of places where I might spend it if I had half the chance.
WHIPPLE: So what's next for you?
WHIPPLE: I'm going to get really fuckin' drunk, shave my head, change my name, and move to another state. What else?
