Please explain what just happened.

You tell me. I obviously missed something.

 

What is your earliest memory?

Stuck outside on my dark front porch, huddled in a scratchy patchwork blanket after stealing pennies and sneaking out to (closed) corner store in the middle of the night. My mom still doesn’t believe me on that one.

 

If you weren’t an actor, what other profession would you choose?

World traveling photo-journalist-writer-translator-spy.

Please explain what just happened.

If you mean just now, I would have to say I just read this question.

 

What is your earliest memory?

You remember those small baby bike seats that your parents would put on the back of the bike? I remember riding in that with my dad and the way the bike swaying back and forth felt. Other than that, I feel like I was born yesterday.

Please explain what just happened.

I woke up in the forest, then I was on a boat, now I’m in Virginia at a gas station in the township of Chilhowie. Like a boss…

 

What was your earliest memory?

When I was a little kid, my great grandma bundled my little brother and I up in our snowsuits, and the three of us trudged through a blizzard to go to a flea market. Imagine this little old white-haired grandma with two kids on some kind of vision quest through three-foot snow drifts to get nicknacks at a discount. That’s my childhood in a nutshell.

Please explain what just happened.

I just finished my album Magic City!

 

What is your earliest memory?

I was about seven years old, and I used to record myself on this karaoke machine. I would play a tape and record myself in layers with all the harmonies. Some songs were made up. Some songs were covers. And then I would host my own music countdown show. The songs would be in order of which songs I thought were hot at the moment, and I would make my little brother and sisters listen to me and be the audience as I hosted. I was always at the top of the countdown. I’m sure it was really annoying for them, but even back then it’s what I wanted to do.

 

If you weren’t a musician, what other profession would you choose?

I always wanted to be a news anchor. In high school I was really into television production. I was the sports anchor on the daily school news broadcast. The short time I went to college that was my major.

Please explain what just happened.

Just sat down at a cafe in Gastown with an espresso.

 

What is your earliest memory?

Watching karate movies and then attacking my older brothers.  That, and hiding when I heard the wolf howl on Michael Jackson’s Thriller album.  Must have been around 3 years old.

 

If you weren’t a director, what other profession would you choose?

Probably a ninja.

Please explain what just happened.

Just ordered some coffee. This happens a lot. It’s 8:42 a.m., and I’m in Stockholm at a nice spot called “Coffice.” And it looks like the kind of place where they’re going to be ok with me sitting here writing. There’s this “no-laptops” trend, which seems to be going wide in the coffee houses in Europe and the U.S. Probably a good thing. It is a vibe-killer to walk into a joint and be confronted with a sea of Macbooks. It’s like a sweatshop or something.

Minnie Driver:

Please explain what just happened.

I just got up and started to make coffee and noticed that I ran out of coffee filters.  I devised a makeshift coffee filter with a paper towel, which FYI, does not work.  I ended up spilling scalding hot coffee and coffee grounds all of over my underwear, legs, counter, and floor.  I cleaned it up and then emptied out  a tea bag and put coffee inside, and now I’m waiting for the coffee to steep, all because I am too lazy to walk out of my fifth floor walk-up to go buy coffee filters.

My sixteen-year-old cat just sneezed a tooth at me and looked at me like, “Really?”  I didn’t know what to tell him.  I’m going to put his tooth under my pillow, and maybe I’ll get a new cat.

 

What is your earliest memory?

On the bookmobile at age four.  My mom is trying to make me talk to a girl my age.  I am terrified, and I may have cried.

Please explain what just happened.

My cat fell into a sink full of water.  And there’s zero proof I pushed her.  And it was totally worth it, even with the mess.

 

What is your earliest memory?

My cat falling into a sink full of a water.  Trying to remember anything prior to that gets dicey.  I blame the weed.

Olivia Wilde:

Please explain what just happened.

In 2001 the United States of America entered an alternate dimension, and the real world has continued next door or across the street running in parallel. We live in a world where there is a black president, half the country believes he is Muslim, and they don’t believe in evolution.

In the real world our president is of no consequence. In our world the sea is rising, rainforests are burning, crippled children labor day and night to make our fancy toys. In the real world people still worry about real things like love, and truth, and being a decent person. Our world is a construct, generated by fear and run-away technology. Our world doesn’t exist in the present, only in fear of the future and the nostalgia of memory. In the real world I run a small shop that sells ties.
