Renee Ruin X Chainsaws and Jelly

The lovely Sheena from Chainsaws & Jelly did a rad little interview with me and it's online over at now!

Sasha Grey & I

"The whole 'ruin' thing has been with me my whole life. It all started when I was really young. My family always had this thing about our family having really bad luck or having some kind of curse. This luck seemed to stick around much of my adult life. It became an in-joke and kind of a catalyst for how I looked at life. I have an obsession with damage and ruins and the idea that some of the most beautiful things and moments in life are the most painful or damaged. Do I ruin everything? I think I used to be obsessed with taking myself to the brink of ruin and back again just to see how much I could take and just how much adversity life could throw at me."

"It's really about the aftermath of damage or ruin...about rising from the ashes of ruin and saying 'Hey fuck you! give me your best shot I'm just gonna get back up again and again'. So when the idea of starting the site came about it seemed only logical that it would be as simple as because everything I blog about and I love and share is a part of who I am, it's my personality and an entity. If that make sense? And, seriously ruined is just a silly little word play. I wanted to somehow extend my life and my personailty and world into something I could share with other people."
