In one week I will be going to Berlin for four days.
Being a bit obsessed with finding things out about other people, I’ve come up with a project for myself, the results of which will be in a magazine I’m producing with a friend of mine.
I will be going out in Berlin, and of course getting a bit merry and having wonderful conversations with people I’ve never met before. It always happens.
This time I’m making it useful, though.
I want to you think of the array of strangers I will meet. Some will be tall, some small. Some fat some thin. Some German, some not. Hopefully they will represent the average type of person who goes to the sort of clubs and bars I want to go to. Hopefully they will be thoughtful, interested and interesting.
That person sounds pretty cool. And I don’t know about you, but when I meet someone interesting I want to find out more about them.
By asking them questions.
So, now, I’m giving you the chance to ask this stranger a question. If you could ask them just one, what would it be? As it happens, I’ll allow you to ask more than one, because I want to gather as many as I can.
I am a hunter-gatherer.
You can read more by clicking on the title of this tumbl, and can submit your questions either as comments on that blog or at The Stranger’s formspring:
"Imagine who in the world you would most like to be. It can be you. Then write a letter from that person to somebody imaginary and send it to this address and somebody imaginary will write back. Just so when we’re busy dying over little kids eating ice-cream at least we won’t be so goddam alone all the time.”
Didn't you delete your Formspring to avoid the madness of anonymous question askers?
I deleted my formspring because I realised that though I can answer mad questions with mad answers in real life and get away with it by putting on a silly voice, my answers on formspring just made me look like a complete whore. I guess having ‘OYM DERTY’ didn’t help. But I am. Totally obsessed with sex. You wouldn’t think it by looking at what I do be tumbln’ wudja?
I had also just had a nightmare about being used as an example on the news which I was watching with my mom of how not to behave on the internet. The newsreader was talking about this serial rapist who became obsessed with girls who put themselves out there on the web, and they were showing clips from my youtube and bits from my formspring, saying that unfortunately, this girl was one of this guy’s victims. It was scary. The only thing I could actually delete was formspring, I’m far too addicted to twitter and facebook.
