You seem brighter than most galaxies. What’s your secret?
Yeah, you know, when I was younger, I did that whole act: “Ohhh I’m a galaxy, my darkness is infinite, I can’t believe I’m stuck in this stupid little Universe forever, I’m gonna go listen to Conor Oberst, woe is me!” But that shit gets old after about four billion years. I guess I just grew up and realized that I’m not the center of the world, you know? I just contain it.
Have you ever been in love?
I merged with another galaxy once. Her name was Destiny. She had the most beautiful gas I’d ever seen. We were both into the alternative scene: black metal, tattoos, cosmic bowling. We took a lot of amphetamines. God, that feels like 10 billion years ago… No, I think it was more like 12.
Anyway, she’s just a distant memory now. I mean, I know she lives within me — or I within her? Once you merge it all kind of just fades. Your identity is changed forever. I don’t even remember my previous orbit. It’s far, far away.
What are you afraid of?
(laughs) This is probably gonna sound crazy but sometimes when I’m changing before bed, I get this eerie feeling like someone, somewhere, is looking up at me.
