Exclusive ITW with

GEORGE ALVIN

 

 FIERY-EROTIC-CREATIVE BOY

 

Do you believe in a world where E.T. is not sent back home?

Eh I'm more of an optimist, so like E.T. I'm usually set on plans going the way I had hoped.

 Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s picture book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ tells the story of a little boy confronted with Monsters, but first he dresses as a wolf: what was your favorite costume as a child?

It's hard to choose, but it was a mixture between my Harry Potter capes or Spider-Man.

Have you cried recently and, if yes, why?

Yeah weirdly enough I did this morning. Moving to Amsterdam, and being back in NYC brought back both happy and sad memories. Sometimes I overthink and freak myself out. Times are different.

 Do you believe in ghosts or aliens?

Both! 

Does the name Donald Trump remind you of the male sexual organ, the penis, and could it be that this helps his popularity?

Clearly it's the only logical explanation to his popularity.

 Who is the bigger freak, Captain Hook or Peter Pan?

Tough, but I'm going to go with Peter Pan ha. I mean he comes into kids windows at night with green tights and takes them to a place called never never land, sounds a little questionable to me. 

 Are you afraid of the dark and what is your favorite horror movie?

Not really afraid of the dark luckily, and I don't really have a favorite, but one I watched when I was like 6-7 called the Blair Witch Project left me never forgetting it. 

 Is ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ too sick to be told to children?

No I think children nowadays have a lot more to be worrying about.

 Would you enjoy lunching with Pamela Anderson?

Eh well I wouldn't say no if she asked.

 Or would you rather spend an evening with Norman Bates (from ‘Psycho’ or from ‘Bates Motel’)?

Definitely Norman Bates. But would it be in his mindset of him or his mother is the question... The first time I watched that movie I was mind fucked.

If you had to walk to the centre of the Earth, would you pack sunglasses?

Never a bad idea to have sunglasses.

 Do you find Captain Jack Sparrow well dressed, possibly cute or of zero interest?

If you're asking if I'd sleep with him, then the answer is yes. 

 Can you both spend hours watching series and live, or are series making life bigger?

Personally there's every so often I'll binge watch a series if it's good enough, but to be honest it's not really productive.

 Are you haunted by a memory in particular?

Well my first summer job I had when I was like 14 was cutting down bushes and trees for this older lady my father knew. One day I was minding my business, cutting off a branch and I snake fell from one of the branches above and landed right on my shoulder. I flung it off, ran to the porch and stayed there in panic until my dad picked me up. Let's just say snakes aren't my favorite reptile because of it.

 Can you imagine Inspector Gadget making out with Donald Duck?

Anythings possible. But I'm pretty sure there's a law against it though haha.

 Did someone ever read you ‘Cinderella’?

Nah, i actually don't ever think I even watched the movie. But my sisters always watched 'A Cinderella story' with Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, and I was secretly into it.

 Do you find inspiration in ‘Mad Men’ or is it just too painfully retro?

I only watched it once or twice, but I was kind of stoned so I never got into it.

Could the word ‘season’ have the same meaning in fashion and in series, or is this question just too lame?

Yes same meaning and yes too lame.

 In ‘24H’, isn’t Mr Sutherland a bit overstressed and the whole story a bit too serious? Is fashion that serious or stressful?

I can tell you like movie references by the end of this interview haha. I think fashion is taken sometimes TOO serious, I think the important thing is just to stay true to yourself and don't wear things just because it's a trend or in season; Wear it because you feel comfortable and confident.

JOHN & CARLOS /BY/ BEHIND THE BLINDS

EXCLUSIVE ITW by BRUCE LABRUCE & PORTRAIT by RUBEN TOMAS

 

Some people say Lou Reed wrote his song "Perfect Day" about heroin.

Describe your perfect day ? 

All we need is a beach , a blunt & a burrito.

Do you believe in monogamy, or do you think monogamy is monotony ?

We are monogamous—not because of any belief system, but just because it's what feels right for us.

I think if we found that to be monotonous, we wouldn't still be dating after 4 years.

Do you have any other sexual fetishes ?

Love and Affection.

What are your opinions about narcissism? Do you think that we now live in a narcissistic culture ?

Can narcissism be a good thing ?

It's pretty undeniable that America has produced a narcissistic culture—Especially now that smartphones exist, technology is facilitating a really

self-involved way of living. Can it be a good thing? Maybe in certain creative senses... but narcissism is ultimately pretty boring, I think ...

What are some of your favourite films ?

C : Daisies, Christiane F, Sleepaway Camp, Benny's Video, Scream 4, The Lego Movie...

J : Brüno, Totally Fucked Up, Natural Born Killers, Inland Empire, Tree of Life...

Do you ever have hallucinations or cosmic experiences when you have sex together when you're high ? 

Pot is definitely an aphrodisiac, but the weed in NYC isn't strong enough for cosmic experiences... But you should send us whatever you're smoking dude.

Do you ever have group sex when you're high ?

C : Group sex isn't something we're looking for in general.

J : Besides, an orgy sounds like it'd be terrible stoned. Like, dealing with all those genitals would get so overwhelming and

then you'd all probably just get lazy and go get pizza instead.

What is the girthiest blunt you've ever smoked ?

Shout out Miley Cyrus, she rolls the fattest blunts in America. 

After you use an apple bong, can you still eat the apple ?

C : Yeah but why would you ?

J : Actually I always eat the apple... blame the munchies I guess.

What are your favourite marijuana-themed movies ?

All time best is Smiley Face by Gregg Araki.

Have you ever seen the film Last Summer, directed by Katy Perry's uncle Frank Perry ? It has the best marijuana smoking scene

I've ever seen.  

No but we did watch the Katy Perry documentary really high it was hilarious.

Are you big fashion icons now? Would you ever amble down a catwalk smoking a spliff ? 

We asked to at the VFiles show, honestly. they didn't let us.

Would you ever do marijuana porn ? If so, call me.  

C : The video "420" we made for Purple Magazine is pretty close... 

J : I think the world needs an iconic homo-stoner porn, and Bruce LaBruce is the man to make it!

If you actually approached us with that, it would be hard to turn it down.

How did you get to be so cute ?????

Drink lots of water and dress like shit...
