It took me forever to try and decide who I was going to introduce you guys to for Berry’s meme this week but I finally decided on Photos Nikolaidis. Mainly because he’s stupidly talented, funny as hell and he’d been drinking wine so there was no way this wasn’t going to be amazing.
Disclaimer: This may be a little long but I sort of forgot a few times that I was doing an interview and just ended up having a chat. Oops.
Magenta: So, HAI PHO!
Magenta: Say hi to everyone reading.
Pho: Hi everyone reading!
Magenta: So Berry says I have to introduce you to everyone but I don’t want to ask you the questions she asked because I already know the answers and I’d be bored and I’m all about me.
Pho: Well, of course.
So, you can only have one kind of sandwich. Every sandwich ingredient known to humankind is at your immediate disposal. What sandwich would you make?
Pho: Knäckebröd with cheese and leeks. I know this isn’t technically a sandwich in UK or US terms, but we’re all about “open faced sandwiches”.
Magenta: Leeks? Dude.
Pho: Have you had them with cheese?
Magenta: Oh wait! I totally know what knackebrod is! Omg I’m so international.
Magenta: and no, I haven’t had them with cheese cos ew.
Pho: You need to have them with cheese.
You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie-celebrity of your choice. Who would it be?
Magenta: (if you pick Alexander I will smack you)
Pho: Haha, hmmmm that’s a hard one…
Magenta: That’s what he said.
Pho: He so did.
Pho: And I can’t pick Alexander Skarsgård, because then you’ll kill me… so uh…
Pho: OH I know then. Ewan McGregor.
Magenta: Oh awesome choice. I approve.
Pho: We do have the same taste in men.
Magenta: I believe to everyone else it’s called good taste
Pho: yes, yes it is.
Ok, now you have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. Same rules as above. Who is it?
Pho: Oh shit, that one is even harder…I’m going to go with the sheer sexiness of the music, and not their appearance.. and that will leave me with…Do they have to be alive?
Magenta: Well, it might be icky if they aren’t but I’m not one to judge..
Pho: Um… Trent Reznor if I go for just the sex in the music… and if I were to go by appearance… Jared Leto.
Magenta: oooooo Jared…
Pho: yes Jared. Those hipbones.
(It sort of dissolved into lots of talking about Jared and what we would do to him etc. so I’ll edit it to save you having to suffer through that..)
Ok, back on subject… now that you’ve slept with two different people in a row, you seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy shit, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?
Pho: I will take you out for drinks. To celebrate my massive score.
Magenta: hahahaha I love this plan!
Magenta: Bring Jared and Ewan.
Pho: Oh of course. You can have sloppy seconds.
Magenta: I have no problem with that at all.
Pho: That’s my girl.
While we are getting drunk an angel appears out of Heaven and offers you a lifetime supply of the alcoholic beverage of your choice. “Be brand-specific” it says. Man! What are you gonna say about that?… so what’s it gonna be?
Pho: is the angel drunk? Because this is going to cost him.
Magenta: Angels don’t drink dude. They aren’t allowed to imbibe alcohol.
Pho: Trying to decide between a really nice amarone or champagne.
Magenta: Rules say only 1. Pesky angels.
Pho: You know… he gets off cheap. I’ll go with Sartori Amarone.
Pho: Do I get to sleep with the angel too though?
Magenta: Angels don’t have bits.
Magenta: You could bump against him a bit.
Pho: Ok, good enough, considering how drunk I am…
After you wake up from your drunken stupor Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?
Pho: I’d go to the early civilizations. Mesopotamia, Babylon, Syria… because I’m fascinated by the structures of humanity and how we ended up where we are
Magenta: What would you do there?
Pho: Watch it. Try to figure things out. Where do our current morals come from? Our religions and political systems. How did it start?
Magenta: That was a good answer.
Magenta: I bet Rufus would love it there.
Pho: Rufus? Don’t tell me I slept with him too…
Magenta: Omg. I can’t even. If you haven’t seen Bill and teds Excellent Adventure we may have to stop being friends because that is unacceptable.
Pho: I saw it… but just once and a loooong time ago. Like when it came out… so I don’t really remember it.
Magenta: Ok. We’re going to get through this and then we are going to have serious talks.
Pho: hahaha ok
Easy one, what is your favourite expletive?
Magenta: What does it mean?
Pho: Literally “the dick”. It can be used in any situation where an expletive is needed.
Magenta: That’s handy!
Pho: Kuken! I burned my finger! Kuken how tired I am. I don’t believe this is happening. Kuken!
Magenta: Oh sort of like Fuck.
Magenta: but cooler.
Pho: I do think fuck is even more versatile though.
Magenta: My fucks are versatile
Pho: Oh I bet they are XD
So one night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren’t really doing anything they’re just standing around your bed. What do you do?
Pho: Not doing anything? Hm… I think I’d try to sneak out of the room and then regroup from there.
Magenta: I’d unwind their bandages cos I’ve always wondered what they are trying to hide…
Pho: Oh, just decomposed flesh. Not pretty. You don’t want to see that, Princess.
Magenta: oh. Well. Ruined. I was hoping for glitter.
Pho: But I might do that after sneaking out and making sure they won’t resist and take pics for you
Your house is on fire, holy shit! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don’t worry your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely. So what’s the one thing you’re going to save from that blazing inferno?
Pho: Well.. would have been my laptop.. but since thunder already fried that, I’ll go for my phone. Everyone I love is in that thing.
Magenta: Plurk, right?
Pho: Yes, I need to be able to Plurk from my yard, with pics of the house burning.
Magenta: Oooo pretty.
Pho: “OMG GUYS! FIRE!”
Pho: would make an excellent Plurk.
Magenta: You know Bronson‘s gonna be all up in there asking if you have marshmallows.
Pho: while wind milling.
Magenta: obv. Maybe he can put the fire out with his wind milling
Pho: with the marshmallows stuck on his kuk.
Pho: this image… I will never get that out of my mind….
Magenta: Ok, moving on swiftly..
You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What’s it gonna be?
Pho: Teleportation. Without a doubt. Then I don’t even have to move to get a second go with Ewan and it’d get me out of any trouble… and I go where I want whenever I want without a problem.
You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check out this cool shit… you can move to anywhere else in the world! Where will you go?
Pho: Can I take people or will I be on my own?
Magenta: You can take people.
Pho: I’m trying to think of places with nice climates.. both weather and politics-wise, lol
Pho: actually, and I’m not saying this to get into your pants, except for maybe a little.. I like the UK. I speak the language, you have awesome pubs and it’s not too hot and the people are pretty awesome too. The beer is cheap, and I already have a lifetime supply of amarone and I might get a second go with Ewan.
Check it out… Suddenly, you have gained the ability to FLOAT!!! Whose house are you going to float to first, and be like “Dude, check it out, I can freaking FLOAT!!”
Pho: Your house, obviously, since you asked this question and is the only one who’ll accept the fact with excitement and not a “WTF get away from my window!”
Magenta: I would be so impressed.
The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier have given you the ability to resurrect the dead famous-person of your choice. So which late celebrity will you bring back to life?
Pho: Morrison, before he got all drugged up, and make him have a foursome with me, Ewan and Jared…….. or no… wait.. on a serious note..
Pho: no… I can’t be serious… there’s way too many people who’d deserve a second chance to make a huge difference to the world.. I can’t choose. I think I’d end up picking some random child who never got a chance to do anything. Because who knows what impact they might have had in the end. But those won’t be celebs… but they MIGHT have been. We’ll never know.
Magenta: That’s a nice place to end.
Pho: It’s a pretentious place to end for sure XD
Magenta: Thank you for taking time out of your day to talk crap with me though. I think we successfully ruined Berry’s meme. Or made it more awesome. Only time will tell.
I didn’t mention it at all because, well, as you can see, I got a little distracted, but Pho has a store called A:S:S where he and his partner Storm Torvalar make amazing mesh clothes for men, unisex accessories, unisex eyes, Slink nails and all manner of totally cool stuff. You can also stalk him at all the places below if, like me, you now adore him to a ridiculous degree.
