K: Apropos “THE SELF-ESTEEM HOLOCAUST COMES HOME” (FALL 2010). How is
writing Good-ass plays different from writing say a Good-ass poem or Good-ass fiction, and, if held at gun-point, which Good-ass form would you go down writing?
SP: it's no different. i wouldn't go down writing anything, i'd say, "shoot me, do it."
K: W.H. Auden liked to start the day early with a Dry Martini, something that was critical to him getting his creative synapses firing. What does a typical Sam Pink breakfast consist of and does it somehow influence your creative process?
SP: i usually just eat whatever i can. and yes, it does influence me because i get weird if i am hungry.
K: We see that you have already done about 17 interviews. That's a whole lot of interviews. We apologize. You must be tired. What makes a good interview? Nevermind, don't answer that. Is there anything that haven't been asked that you would like to ask? We'll do our best to
try to find an answer.
SP: i would like to ask, "why don't i feel peaceful."
Well that's it. Kind of sad really. Oh well? Happy valentine's day!

If you would like to be interviewed by kitchen that probably means that we don't want to interview you so don't write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you however want to interview someone other than yourself who is interesting you can do that and send us that interview. Thanks.
