What were you doing when scouted? Shopping downtown.

How would you describe your style? I am a functionalist when it comes to clothing and believe in only primary colors, and black and white. My fashion is also influenced by the French situationalists, and that’s why I think everyone should have a black MC jacket even if they don’t have a motorcycle.

What are your current favorite fashion trends? Primary colors and black and white apparel, thick-framed glasses, boots and MC Jackets. Everybody should have an MC Jacket.

What are your least favorite fashion trends? Let’s just say … wearing a polo, pleated khakis and loafers is not the only valid expression of Jayhawk Spirit.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? More outdoor concerts — like the Wilco show at Ninth and New Hampshire.

What would you like to see less of in Lawrence? Less homogenous architecture. There is not a wide variety of architectural styles in Lawrence.

Who are your fashion influences? New York City Proto-punks: Tom Verlaine, Patti Smith, etc.

People say I look like: More and more like myself all of the time.

Tell us a secret: I’ve never killed a man in cold blood.

great. this gets published on the day I choose to wear a polo to work. dammit! at least my khaki's aren't pleated & I am NOT wearing loafers :0)

I don't think lavendar is a primary color.
Flip flops on men should be against the law.

That's the first thing I thought too, scopi. Lavendar Land's End shirt and Banana Republic shorts are the definition of preppy. Ha Ha

I'm going out on a limb here, but I'll bet Mark believes that everyone should own a black MC jacket. Just a guess though...
