What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
The picture on the Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing bottle. I haven’t really been there, but it looks nice, and I often imagine myself there, frolicking.

Add tulips and regulated nudity.
What is the most beautiful thing you ever created? What made it beautiful?
A skateboard ramp. The fire I set to it.
