Q. What is Nunt?
A. It is the title of a book
written by Mingus Tourette, published by
Zygote Publishing, released September 2004.
Q. Who is this Mingus Tourette fellow?
A. He's a Canadian writer with a fondness for
women, liquor, long walks and heavy bullshit sessions
in dirty lager holes.
Q. What does 'Nunt' mean?
A. Some people have observed that it might be
derived from the phrase 'Nun's Cunt', refering
to a nun's vagina. However, the word is a much
more rigourous examination of the sacred and the
profane than such a simple observation would merit.
Please take a look at the
book cover if you are curious about the word,
and ask yourself what it REALLY means, photo and
Q. Did you make that word up?
A. Yes. I am a neologist.
Q. Do you really think that's funny?
A. Maybe. But I'm still deadly fucking serious
Q. Are you mentally ill?
A. No. I have a slightly disaligned world paradigm,
and do speak to myself in third person on a regular
basis, but I have no clinical mental illness to
speak of. Not that I've ever asked a doctor.
Q. Do you think you will ever make enough money
as a writer to live?
A. If I didn't, I would shave my head and wander
the world. Believe or quit trying. But I don't
think I could ever stop writing.
Q. Do you believe in violence?
A. That's a stupid question.
Q. Do you believe in God?
A. No. We are a bunch of shaved apes staring at
glowing boxes. Currently, you are a shaved ape
staring at a glowing box reading words that another
shaved ape typed into his glowing box on the other
side of the world or down the street or wherever,
none of it negating the fact that we are all nothing
but shaved apes and there is no shaved ape god.
Consider this: we are just shifting carbon.
Q. Do you consider yourself a pessimist?
A. No. I am as realist as it gets. The world is
a tough and beautiful place and I call it both
Q. Name three things you would take with you to
a desert island.
A. The Olsen twins, an axe and an oil tanker full
of rum and vaseline.
Q. Don't you think the Olsen twins are two things?
A. Genetically, they are the same thing.
