Iggy Pop says whatever too
I find it disturbing that I over use the word “whatever” or “whatevers” in random context (or whatever), but then I see aging rock stars use it during interviews and it makes me feel better. Or whatever.
Iggy Pop speaks with New York Times Magazine and answers the following question:
I’m curious how your tour is going. You have a new album, “Aprés,” and you’re out there with the Stooges. You resolved in 2010 that you wouldn’t stage-dive anymore after you had a mishap.
I said that after doing a concert for Tibet at Carnegie Hall, which I did because Philip Glass asked me to. But yeah, I am a little impulsive, and Lenny Kaye was playing “I Want to Be Your Dog” too damned slow, and I just ran out of ideas and I thought, Well, let’s just stage-dive. Nobody caught me, because it was the Carnegie Hall-Tibetan-whatever audience. I was a little miffed. We’ve done two gigs this year, and I haven’t done one yet. Stages are getting higher and higher, and I’m getting older and older.
Also, I see that the magazine uses a special term at the bottom of their story to say “hey, we edited this whatever.” They add in all caps: INTERVIEW HAS BEEN CONDENSED AND EDITED.
Maybe I’ll start using that in my Q & As too.
