Stephen Elliott Interviews Stephen Elliott, Insults Fly


“Stephen Elliott: I don’t generally hook up with people when I first meet them. And also, when you’re on the road, I don’t know, it’s kind of awkward. What I long for when I travel isn’t sex, it’s intimacy. I don’t know if you can have intimacy with someone you just met. Why are we talking about this?

SE: You’re interviewing yourself. You know that don’t you?

SE: Yes. I’m sorry.”

Our own Stephen Elliott’s got a pretty damn funny Self-Interview over at The Nervous Breakdown.
