Welcome back to How I Weird, the series of where we find bizarro authors, strip em down, inspect their junk, compare them with our own.
That’s some interesting junk!
So I met Leigham Shardlow in person a couple of weeks ago. He picked me up by the scalp, pulled me on stage, and made me pretend to be a pineapple, all to win the bottled soul of former Bullseye host, Jim Bowen. I didn’t win the soul, but I did take home a handful of complimentary eyeballs. You’d be surprised by how much of that is true.
Anyway… on with the dissection.
WHO – I’m Leigham aka “That Tall Bloke” aka “Every Nickname under the Sun”.
WHAT – My bed has a boil underneath but I’m afraid to pop it in case it’s full of ants.
WHERE – Derby, England. It’s like super haunted.
NOTABLE WORK – Fell Beauties and the British Bizarro Community are the two things I’m most proud of. Don’t know if they’re notable…yet.
WHAT DO YOU WRITE WITH – Blood, not mine obviously.
ONE WORD THAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR MIND – Peculiar.
CAN WE SEE A PICTURE OF WHERE YOU WRITE –
WHAT WAS YOUR INTRODUCTION TO BIZARRO – Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BIZARRO-ADJACENT MOVIE OR BOOK – “How to be a complete Bastard” by Adrian Edmondson.
HOW DO YOU RECHARGE – I have a long cable that winds out of my bum. It’s not very comfortable.
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS – Like if you can get a dead person to answer that would be wicked cool.
I’LL PREP THE OUIJA BOARD!
