5 Questions with Phil Spencer

philspencerWhat is your favourite swear word?
My English teacher once called my class an incorrigible pack of rapscallions, which I though was rather excellent.

What are you wearing?
An American Apparel T-Shirt. I will admit that American Apparel do have morally dubious and problematically pseudo-pornographic marketing campaigns but they are ethically manufactured. So one out of two isn’t bad right?

What is love?
In no particular order…
Coopers Green.
Gilbert (the cat).
The Smiths.
My wife.
Kurt Vonnegut Jnr.
Tim Tams (preferably frozen).

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Blue Wizard by Nick Coyle (at Tiny Stadiums). 5 stars. The single best opening scene of anything I’ve ever witnessed with my face. There was smoke, strobes and a voice warbling power ballad. Cher would have keeled over and died if she’d have been there. She wasn’t.

Is your new show going to be any good?
Yep.

5 Questions with Michelle Pastor

michellepastorWhat is your favourite swear word?
I don’t swear a lot. My boyfriend looks at me in shock when I do. So you’ll mostly hear me say Oh My Goodness, but in times of extreme frustration it’s F*ing Hell!

What are you wearing?
Right now I’m in my pyjamas. The curse of working from home. If I got dressed? Jeans and a lazy jumper. Im in Melbourne today and it’s stupidly cold.

What is love?
Wanting to spend every second with that person, or thinking about them, or remembering them, or talking about them, accepting every part of them and being so grateful they are in your life, because with them, joy is abundant.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
I saw King Kong yesterday. That gorilla is freaking incredible. Kids were in tears with fear. I wanted to give him a hug. It took 13 guys
to work the puppet! How many stars? Sadly the story was a little disjointed, so I’ll give it 4.

Is your new show going to be any good?
Yes. Undoubtedly. Why? Because it’s fun. I have fun performing it and you’ll have fun watching it.
