From an interview with Boyd Rice by Self-Titled:
ST: Why have most people not been able to make it past six months with you?
BR: When you’re somewhat of a public figure, people think they know what you’re into, and they try to cater everything to that. And they can keep up that facade for six months, but after six months–almost to the day–they act like the complete opposite. It’s like what you see is what you get. I’m not going to change for anyone…Don’t date a guy who’s always drinking 24/7, then suddenly say ‘I think you drink too much’ after six months…It’s not too much if it helps you deal with the world. I’m not on Klonopin, you know? I’ve love to be on Klonopin.
ST: Why aren’t you then?
BR: I will be soon, after I’m married. I used to talk to John Balance of Coil, and early on, he said his situation with drinking and drugs is this Arthur Rimbaud-like detachment of the senses. And the last time I talked to him, he said, ‘Truthfully Boyd, I hate this world so much that if I weren’t drinking non-stop, I would not be able to deal with it.’ I thought, ‘Okay, I dig that.’
Blake: Of course sometimes I just come here and cry a great deal remembering everything.
Tom: Oh I’m sorry to hear that.
Blake: Oh no, no… in a good way. (nervously chuckles) I-I’ve had some lovely cries. (he smiles)
I’d heartily recommend Black Pond (2011) for anyone who likes quirky, dark, philosophical, British comedy.
