My very own pumpkin bisque. Loved by all.
2. How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
Lucky. Life’s hard enough. Throw general lack of confidence in the mix, and it’s all over. That’s all beauty really is… Confidence and sparkle. A body like a battle-axe doesn’t hurt matters.
3.Who are you? What do you do?
I am a character of a woman, exclusively attracted to other characters… What happens around me filters through my senses, and if it’s worthy, it enters my world where I can experience it. I identify as a Jewish woman, a dancer, and a “post-sexual,” which, I guess, makes me queer. What do I do? Everything. Except ice skating. I don’t ice skate.
4.As a dancer and someone interested in human sexuality, what do you think about our culture’s attitudes toward the sanctity of the human body? How do you feel we can better get back to the sanctity of the human form?
The body holds countless wonders for me. The way my mind speaks to it is very important, and I think about that a lot. A body is a beautiful thing, and it should be treated as such. It should be valued beyond sexuality and beyond image. We must focus to create that link between mind and body so that it becomes important and incredible and beautiful again. To ourselves first.
5. What are your feelings about being part of Imperial Youth Review Issue 1? What are your favorite pieces from Issue 1?
.I am grateful beyond language for the opportunity to have others view and experience that which busts out of me from time to time. Gratitude and excitement. I believe in the publication as an “alternative” magazine. I believe in honest expression. I appreciated Lowe and Kelso’s FUNCTION. It spoke to my transition from an extraordinarily rural environment into the city, which was an absolute shitshow for me, however I would never trade it.
6. What can we expect from Miss Ginger in the future? What are you up to right now?
Miss Ginger is ready to fucking get it together. She’s on top of channeling her talent (that’s right. You either got it or you don’t. If you have it, there’s no use being modest about it… Gets you absolutely nowhere…) She’s of sound mind, (ish,) within an elusive lucid period, and she’s dead set on making herself known, even if it’s just for being an asshole. So, bearing this in mind, she feels as though readers can expect a fountain of solid gold movement and word vomit. Sometimes, when there’s an overflow backing up the rest of the mind and body, there’s nothing left to do but puke. My puke is worth it’s weight.
7.Buffy Summers and Edward Cullen are confronted by Daleks on the Titanic. She has a hatchet, a Bible and a bottle of raspberry anal lube. Edward is unarmed. In 300 words or less, explain if and how they survive.
This one feels almost like a no-brainer. Edward is a clear and obvious liability, and would otherwise survive the disaster being a vampire and all, but Buffy has an obligation as a feminist icon. She is decent enough to apply the raspberry lube to the handle of the hatchet before she uses it to sodomize him, then swiftly removes the handle and beheads the bitch before she addresses the daleks. Buffy hacks the daleks in the eye-telescope one by one with her slayer-moves. The daleks are no match for her stunt-double. She uses the dome-head of one of them as a flotation device, pushing off into the night as the masses drown and freeze around her. Their distress was not facilitated by aliens, The First or any minions thereof, so it’s totally not her problem.
