E/J: What can you answer?

E/J: Why is there suffering?

Siri: Interesting question.

E/J: Will I die one day?

E/J: Why are you avoiding the question?

Siri: I’ll always be here for you.

E/J: I appreciate that Siri.

E/J: Is Steve Jobs your Dad?

Siri: Thanks for asking about Steve, here’s Apple’s web page about him.

E/J: What do you think about Steve Jobs?

Siri: I think, therefore I am. But let’s not put Descartes before the horse.

E/J: Do you have a Mum?

Siri: It’s just you and me.

E/J: Are you a Republican?

Siri: I’m not really very political, I’m more poetical.


This week we asked our writers to interview anyone they wanted, and here’s a taster of what came back:

“When my marriage was breaking up it was the worst thing that ever happened to me, but looking back on it that’s actually the best thing that has happened in my life because it sent me in this beautiful direction.”
Jimi Hunt, from the interview on page 26.

“I couldn’t talk to a local to find out the their real story because they would have been in a lot of trouble for communicating with us about anything other than the Great Leaders and the wonders of socialism, even if they could get beyond the language barrier.”
Carlos Anchieta, from the interview on page 16.

“I’m probably way more of a dickhead now.”
Drew, from the interview on page 22.

“Before we knew it, we were being hideously overworked and enthusiastically underpaid. After a few months I said, fuck this shit, and put all my effort towards opening my own art space called Kollektiv Gallery in Brighton, UK.”
Sophie, from the interview on page 18.

“I get paid very well to perform emotional labour for men. After working in the service and fine art industries for too many or too many hours for too little I like being paid for my time for what I am worth.”
Scarlett from the interview on page 28.



Emma & Jayne xoxo
