Do you believe in reincarnation? If your answer is "yes," describe some of your past lives.

I've believed, at various points in my life, that I've been kings & emperors & such. And usually bad ones, like Caligula. I've also thought that I might've been Lewis Carroll. And I believe that I still have more lives to live before I'll reach the peak of my soul's existence. But I also believe that this life is my last life on this planet...I'll never be an Earthling again. I'm hoping to return to the hermaphrodite planet...the planet where my soul first incarnated. Incidentally, I've also believed that I'm responsible for a lot of the horrible things that've happened on this planet & all because I wanted a Catholic schoolgirl uniform & such a thing could not exist without Christianity & all the horrible things associated with it. However, if I'm willing to return to my homeworld without the Catholic schoolgirl uniform, I might - just might - be able to change history. Then again, maybe I'm just paranoid.

Do you believe in the concept of a soulmate? Do you think you've met him or her? Do you ever worry that "the one" got away?

I'm not sure if I believe in it or not. I used to & I used to feel pretty sure whom mine was. But now I just don't know. As for "the one that got away": Well, if they really were "the one", wouldn't they be looking for me now? I'm pretty easy to find, actually.

What's your favorite cult film of all time, and why? What are the essential ingredients for a cult classic?

It's a difficult choice...for years, I've said that my favourite movie was Forbidden Zone &, to a degree, it still is. But a few years ago I discovered Russ Meyer's Beyond the Valley of the Dolls & it's been inching its way to the top of my list & is currently displacing Forbidden Zone as my favourite movie. But, like said, it's a difficult choice. Part of me is inclined to still name Forbidden Zone, largely because of its independent & home-brewed production: old school animation techniques & cardboard sets & improvised costumes & people dressed in their underwear. It's a total fantasy without the slightest attempt at realism, which counts for a lot in my book. But Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, though it was made for a major studio (20th Century-Fox), still is classic Russ Meyer: brilliant, colourful cinematography, quick cuts (Russ didn't like to see anyone blinking) & completely ludicrous dialogue (in this case, most of it written by Roger Ebert), not to mention the trademark busty girls, a staple of all of Russ' films. Also some great tunes (the main characters are the members of an all-girl rock band). Plus the multi-layeredness: one needs to see the film several times to really assimilate it.
What makes a film a cult classic? I think it depends on the individual film. There are few similarities between Forbidden Zone & Beyond the Valley of the Dolls but I think they equally qualify as cult classics. There's definitely an "inside joke" quality to both films, which I think is one of the necessary ingredients for a cult classic. Memorable lines are essential & both films are replete with surreal dialogue. If I had more time here (& had prepared more for this answer), I could go on. The most important thing to me about both of these films is that they're both incredibly funny & they keep me coming back for more. That's what really makes a cult classic.
