1.- How do you want to go out?Multiple shark attack at Pipeline. The hungry Great Whites take a leg off but I still battle them off two or three other surfers that are being attacked. I ride a glorious final wave into a perfect barrel only to die in my wife's arms on the beach while the sun sets.
2.- If you could take one person with you, who would you take?If it's in a good sense my wife but if it's in the sense that I was sparing the world from them probably Justin Beiber or Kanye West.
3.- What do you think is on the other side?I imagine it's probably a nice empty beach with good waves, a taco stand and bottomless cooler of beer.
4.- If you could choose, what would your last meal be?Pan seared scallops for starters. A big wet burrito for my main. Hot fudge cake for dessert and then Irish cheddar on crackers with grapes and a brandy to finish. That's just one option so hopefully they'd revive me so I could have another meal after that.
5.- What's the last thing you want to do / or who is the last person you want to see?I think they were both covered in question one. If the surf session could be about 4 hours of perfection before the shark attack and I have breakfast with the wife before that it would definitely make the end all the more sweet.
6.- (If there was one) What would your tombstone say?I have a tattoo from an Ernest Hemingway quote that reads "It is good to have an end to journey towards but in the end it's the journey that matters." Enjoy the ride otherwise what's the point?
7.- If you could come back after death as anything, what would you be?Definitely a flying or swimming creature so I could explore the whole world. Eagle or dolphin I reckon. Maybe a flying fish so I can combine my powers.
8.- What's the last thing you would sketch?My shark mauled leg on top of a bowl of fruit. Haven't done a still life for years.
9.- What's the last worst idea you would have?Waterproof toaster.
10.- What's the last artwork or related accomplishment you would think of?I would like to get back into sculpture. Some kind of underwater sculpture that appears at low tide like the little mermaid in Denmark would be fun.
11.- What's the last thing you would get drunk on, literally or metaphorically?Heisenberg's meth.
12.- What's the last thing you REALLY wanted but didn't get?I want to achieve everything so there will probably be a list a mile long. A big dream that will never be completed is to travel to a country starting with each letter of the alphabet. I'm up to 17 countries now so can some country please have a civil war so we can split it and name a new country starting with X?
13.- Last Words?I am not a very deep person so I looked the last word up in my dictionary. Zyzzyva is a tropical American weevil so I guess the English language isn't that deep either. Therefore in the words of Bill and Ted, be excellent to one another and party on dudes.
