The World According to Stephin Merritt

Great interview with Stephin Merritt at BlackBook.

Some choice replies:

SM: Sounds like you’re in a lawn mower. Is there something you can do about it?

SM: Different people reacted differently. I’m having difficulty picking out a story in this.

SM: Yours is a narrow definition of pop music. Where are you going with this? When I talk about popular music, I’m referring to music that you don’t have to wear a tuxedo to listen to. Hold on for a moment. [Answers door. Dog goes apeshit.] It was the Girl Scouts.

SM: He just came back from having a pedicure, and he’s very upset. He hates nail stuff, so the last thing he needs is a Girl Scout on the doorstep. He’s been traumatized already today.

[thanks SV4!]
