Yeah, I mean, some people like comic books or The Lord of the Rings or whatever. For me, it’s cat videos.
Were you the person always sharing cat videos with other people?
Oh yeah. I was unashamed about it. I didn’t wait until the 2012 boom where all of a sudden the stigma lifted and it was cool to love cat videos. I was sharing those things, as a nerd, 10 years before that. I was emailing all my friends cat videos and being made fun of and enduring the jokes about being a crazy cat lady for a long, long time. Now I’m a proud crazy cat video lady… trapped in a man’s body.
I don’t think I knew that about you.
I also don’t think you should use that line.
My very first interview is published today on the Walker Art Center’s website. It’s a very serious look at the state of cat videos today with “Henri, Le Chat Noir” creator, Will Braden.
