3 Questions for Sascha von Bornheim:


Q: You can take one item with you to a deserted island. What is it?


SvB: A boat.


Q: Why?


SvB: Well, it's an island. I assume it's surrounded by water.


Q: You can't get off the island. The point of the question is to find out what you'd take with you if you had to stay there permanently.


SvB: A gun.


Q: You would shoot yourself?


SvB: Evidently. I mean, the island is deserted. Who else am I going to shoot? Rick James? Oh wait, he's already dead. Now, I didn't know him personally, but I think the cocaine might have had something to do with it. It's a hell of a drug.


Q: If you could have dinner with one famous person from history, who would it be?


SvB: Einstein, Hitler, Aristotle... all such obvious choices, so I must say 'no' to them. Plus, I'd want to have some fun... so I guess I'd have dinner with Jesus.


Q: Jesus? How is that fun?


SvB: He had a fondness for wine and his wife was a hooker. Use your imagination.


Q: Why do you write so much about death?


SvB: It fascinates me. We all get to experience it, no matter who we are. Death is the one constant thing in our lives, time and space mean nothing to it. It comes to us all.


And yet, no one has lived to tell the rest of us about it... what's it like? I for one believe that we simply cease to exist, but the concept of not being at some point in time when I am clearly here right now is difficult to grasp, and maybe a bit scary.


I guess I'll just have to live forever.
