On the Couch with Marco Chiappi

Marco ChiappiWho is Marco Chiappi?
An old ham always in search of playdates.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
I wouldn’t necessarily do anything different but would rather accept the consequences of my errors with lightness and grace.

Who inspires you and why?
Those who just quietly get on with ‘it’.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Be more careful with my hygiene.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
It wouldn’t be one place, but a day of fossicking in various places. A bit of music in Fitzroy or Collingwood maybe the Botanic gardens, perhaps somewhere around the foreshore with a bottle of something. Second hand book stores and the like. And if they’re playing at Victoria Park, watching the Collingwood reserves.

What are you currently reading?
Read and Fisher’s Last Days of Berlin. Tony Martin’s Lolly Scramble and bits and pieces of Gilles Deleuze.

What are you currently listening to?
Laurie Anderson and PJ Harvey.

Happiness is?
A noun.

What does the future hold for you?
A lot of driving for Uber.
