Obviously a great interview, though I don't know how I feel about you posting it. Have it your way, and we'll have a bunch of idiots running around the streets taking furniture entirely too seriously. Actually, this might be good; you can mimic a clothing style, but with regards to design (furniture, architecture, etc), it is always so damm easy to call someone out when they think they are trying to pull a quick one on you in conversation. If you're going to be all non-sequitur-like, you better have a hefty background knowledge.

That being said, a nice post - I appreciate the absence of your opinion; let the video do the talking.

Are you the frantic guy in a Lord of the rings movie line with elf ears and tin foil armor, whirling around asking everybody "Have YOU read the books?!" Why is it always about calling someone out?

You are worried that a “bunch of idiots” will take furniture too seriously?! - I'm lost for words.
