SPB: Have you ever hooked your dangling earrings on anything?
Thotz: I've hooked them on countless things all over the universe that I'm unaware of; I've misplaced at least thirty or forty. I was down to one earring for about six months there a little while back. It was my favorite, so I was really being careful not to lose it. It had a blue dyed feather on top and then a chain that went down to an orange feather. The earring looked like something a punk would wear in an ‘80s movie--maybe like Nicholas Cage in Valley Girl. Somehow the orange feather on my favorite earring had gotten all matted with blood. I liked that even better. Then I finally lost that one too. I like the feather earrings because they dangle, but they're not heavy. Two years ago, you could pick up a feather earring set for two bucks. But then they went out of fashion, I guess, so I've just been making my own shitty earrings. I just take a thrift store earring and tie a couple feathers to it with wire or fishing string or a rubber band. I find feathers anywhere. There are endless stray bird feathers out in the world if you look for them. It seems birds lose feathers like punks lose feather earrings.
