Fierth i-ON Interview with DJ WILL AUTOMAGIC
Fierth: What is your name?
DJ Will Automagic
Fierth: What exactly are you wearing right now?
Automagic: Long sleeves with shorts, always.
Fierth: Describe your home in 6 words or less.
Automagic: Maze of vinyl records leading from the door to the bed. (sorry that was 11 words)
Fierth: What were you like as a child?
Automagic: Blond and always on a horse but terrified of horses.
Fierth: What does your mother say about you?
Automagic: That changes a lot. Not so long ago I heard second hand that she called me a “long haired hippie” though the last time I had long hair was when I was 16. For the most part she seems to try to be proud of me but she is always asking me “Now what exactly do you do?” and she really doesn’t understand at all when I try to explain. I love her with all my heart
Fierth: List 5 quirky things about yourself.
Automagic: Fuck You.
Fierth: What makes you angry ?
Automagic: People who treat others with disrespect whether they know they are doing it or not.
Fierth: What brings you the most joy?
Automagic: When everyone is together in the moment and they know it, and it is all about noone and everyone all at the same time.
Fierth: If you weren’t doing what you are doing now, what do you think you would be doing?
Automagic: Something else.
Fierth: What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
Automagic: My parents were utterly convinced I worshiped Satan when I was a teenager. I did paint upside down crosses and pentagrams on my jeans and did some pretty intense hair situations so I guess they felt their fears were justified. The shit hit the fan though when the school counselor confiscated this one weird kid’s Satanic Bible and my name was one of 13 names written in the front cover. I barely knew him. As it turned out the reason my name was written in there was because he wanted to kill me because I had dated the girl he was in love with. Very middle school.
Fierth: What do you think about and are the first three things you do first after waking up in the morning?
Automagic: I hate brushing my teeth more than literally anything in the world. But I end up doing it (of course). That takes up all three first thoughts after waking.
Fierth: What do you daydream about?
Automagic: Being alone. And not being alone.
Fierth: What is your favorite song?
Automagic: Are you fucking kidding me?
Fierth: What is your favorite sound?
Automagic: Silence, in the very rare moments that I can actually tolerate it.
Fierth: Where is your favorite place to lunch?
Automagic: That place that does currywurst on 1st Ave. in theEastVillage.
Fierth: Do you know how to cook? What do you most like to make ?
Automagic: Ya. I keep finding that DJs are either really good at cooking or at math in addition to being a DJ. I like to make: Caramel ice cream, beef stew, roast chicken with couscous and yellow peppers, caramelized onion tart (usually with goat cheese & ½ the time with homemade crust), meatballs of any kind, tamales (only in collaboration with SeanB and crew), scrambled eggs with Chinese chili oil.
Fierth: Which stars, if any leave you star struck?
Automagic: Nina Hagen
Fierth: You can trade places with any other person, living or dead, for 24 hours. Who would you choose and why?
Automagic: Albert Einstein. Physics is the craziest thing if you really look at it. It is an investigation of the most basic question: “what is really all around us and why is it that way?” No one will ever figure it out completely, but he observed the world in a way that allowed room for a flood of new ways of thinking.
Fierth: Do you believe in karma?
Automagic: I think we should act as though karma doesn’t exist. If you have a true impulse to do something good, it doesn’t ever come from a place of expecting something back.
Fierth: If you could choose a superhero power, What would it be, And how would you use it.
[Invisibility, Ability to Fly, Super Strength, Read Peoples Mind’s, Elasticity,Super Stamina]
Automagic: I don’t know, I just really loved the Wonder Twin cartoon where one could be an animal and the other could be some form of water
Fierth: Ever had a rumor spread about you?
Automagic: Haha, there was a big rumor in high school that I smoked pot. TRUE.
Fierth: How can we find out more about you :
