What is the best thing about Instagram?
The best thing about the Instagram is having access to other people and what they want to show. I don't go out much or have a group of friends, so Instagram is fun for being able to experience social life without having to be anywhere or talk to anyone. The other best thing is how much it matters. I check my Instagram a lot and then look at people on the train, people I don't know checking theirs. Everyone is doing it and to me that means there's something in it for everyone.
Why did you start making videos?
It was really natural. I didn't have intentions or anything. I just started taking videos of myself. Looking back on it I might have been bored taking selfies and didn't know another way to take better pictures of myself so I found recording myself to be easier. That way you don't have to look through photos of yourself that basically all look the same. Even when you get a good photo you can pack a lot more information and jokes into a video.
What is the last film you watched and why did you choose to watch it?
I saw Blow Up the other day. I really wanted to watch it for a long time but I got invited to go watch it so I had the opportunity. There was a lot of visual consistency in it and little not-so-obvious jokes. That really did it for me. Not one of my favorite films though.
What is your dream vacation destination?
A house in the middle of nowhere with glass walls and huge windows with a bed that fills the space of an entire room wall to wall.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
A little while ago I was shopping for new glasses. I went to 10 or so different stores in the city in a span of 2 or 3 days and I finally found a pair I really liked. It was the perfect pair and just a little bit different from a great pair I already own. It was a little expensive so I thought I should think about it before buying them. When I got home I put on the pair that I already own to compare the two and I realized they were the same exact glasses.
