Countless Reasons Why Lord De Cross Is So Awesome! (An Interview)
Infamous for his awe-inspiring poems and the many directions of his writing talent, Lord De Cross is one of the most interesting chaps that inhabit the fair city of HubberVille.
He came to Budapest by TeleQuasiTransportation and appeared right at my doorstep. If you are like I, you might be wondering what that means. Apparently, the information is top secret. All Lord was willing to share was that it is the finally solution to every time travel paradox and it is the key to traveling back in time into the future. (Coming soon to an erectronics store close to you.)
At this point I considered asking Lord about his passion for science and mathematics and what he does for a living, but I realized that no one cares about those. So I decided to just ask him about his writing. We sat down with a cup of coffee and some rambutan fruit that goes so well with it. I put on heavy metal music and let the alligator out. So the interview began.
Me: Hello my Lord and welcome to my dungeons. As you can see there are some interesting pieces of equipment lying around here, writing aids that I use for different purposes to stimulate my creativity. What room is your favorite to write in?
Lord: My bedroom obviously. Have this laptop that even goes to the bathroom with me. It doesn't pop like me.
Metrosexual means you own 20 pairs of shoes, the same amount of sunglasses, just as many watches, and you carry a man-purse.
Me: That is all well, but do you have any writing quirks? Do you take drugs, smoke weed or drink alcohol to beef up your creative imagination? Do you write naked or lash yourself with a whip to evoke the physical pain that is often necessary to write a heart-wrenching masterpiece?
Lord: Maybe if you answer to this one first: Are you metrosexual?
Me: (chuckles) No, my Lord. Not yet. Sex questions will be introduced later on.
Lord: Writing Quirks? Not that I know. Just a cup of coffee and a trail mix with peanuts.
(Notice that he refuses to answer.)
Me: Now, I was warned about your sense of humor. But, let's see... what is your favorite thing you've written so far?
Lord: My first movie script in 2004, is called "my turn, your turn."
Me: You have written a screenplay? That sort of begs the question, what would you do if you didn't write?
Lord: Listen to my 80's music. And then keep on writing, because an idea for a poetic inspiration just came to my mind.
Me: So you do have a regular job, Lord?
Lord: Sure, I work for a printing company that can make coupons, to government forms. Did you ever wonder how the secret service or the CIA friends fill their income tax?
Me: I have no idea, but I guess you are taking care of that.
Lord: Well, we print sensitive information, and then I have to watch this humongous shredder to take care of the waste. I don't write naked. the closest I ever written close to the naked through was wearing my black shorts.
(Lord was kind enough to pose for me while I took a picture of that.)
Me: What is the most demeaning thing said about you as a writer?
Me: And how do you react to bad comments on your writing?
Lord: I'm not perfect and I know my limitations, so the worst case scenario is just... delete negatives comments. I'm prone to get different responses due to my variety of topics. But in the end, it helps me to realize that I can do things better.
Me: Are there any occupational hazards to being a writer?
Me: What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
Lord: Good question. Humm... It keeps me young. Not an Edgar Alan Poe. Just the 'average Joe.' I joke a lot, like last night wrote about Melbel and had to research about Ruby programming and we did an intro in that Language from there we found her favorite words on Twitter. All that keeps me really sane.
Me: Do you live in an ivory tower?
Lord: Hahaha. Nope! But just picture this. My mind can get to that tower and see the world. I can be in Budapest and the next minute in Ankara or Sophia. My mind can go anywhere...!
Me: Who would play you in a film of your life?
Lord: Most likely Jim Carrey. We come up with funny words in a split of a second. You are making me think about that one...
Me: You are a funny person. I wonder if you laugh at your own jokes?
Lord: Absolutely! I laugh when I comment, laugh when I get a ticket and I make you laugh...like right know.
Me: Hahah, do you admire your own work? *Say you do! Say you do!*
Lord: I wouldn't use that word. I try to be a perfectionist like Victoria Lynn on HP. Every article is like a new son, and therefore they need care. What I mean to say is that I'm not egocentric or think of myself as a genius. I just happened to read books as a kid, when the rest was out there playing. Yeah! I was a shy kid. Can you Believe that?
Me: No, my Lord. But you have ways to make us feel fine around you. Are you jealous of other writers?
Lord: Not at all! I sure read them and learn as I go. Some...sorry! Some are boring and I just hop to the next one.
Me: Now, on to some more sensitive areas. What makes you cry?
Lord: You know what? I have lost a son at childbirth, holding it in my hands for 2 hours before it got taken away from us. What else... Seeing my first baby being born premature and... thinking, that little thing with IV's faced down and trembling is part of me. I'm very emotional and it shows in my writings. I have cried when I lost my dad. I went to see him after six years, and he died, when I was on a plane. When I got there... it was too late.
Me: What kind of people do you dislike?
Lord: The ones that hate your potentialities. I have been disliked for being myself, but on the other hand I have met nice people, that really admire... (coughing) the way I am.
Me: If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?
Lord: Do charity work, keep enjoying my music and write... and, I guess, a memoir.
Me: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Lord: That I'm as normal as any of them. But have seen life from my own angle. If you read between the lines you will feel something from my words.
Me: What's the most important part of the sandwich for you?
Lord: The whole sandwich. It's like asking what's the best part of being part of HP.
Me: Finally, can you tell us about some crazy experience that you've had, Lord?
Lord: There you go. I was on an American Airlines on may 11, 2009 and at 2 pm, was flying over Florida, and the Captain announces: "Ladies and Gentlemen, If you look to your window. You will see the Atlantis Shuttle coming up into space. We are safe so far, but enjoy the view!" And this monster came up like a ball of fire, and actually we felt the rattling and we felt good. Picture your team Winning the Super Bowl!!
Me: That was awesome, Lord! Thank you so much for this interview. I wish you all the best in your writing endeavors. :D
