NAME David Shapiro is the name I write under but not my legal name but I think more people know me as David Shapiro so it is probably more accurate to say my name is David Shapiro for the purpose of this questionnaire and for life in general. WHAT DO YOU DO? I wrote a novel called "You're Not Much Use to Anyone" and I go to law school and write sometimes at The Wall Street Journal, New Yorker, and elsewhere. Also I wrote a movie. WHAT SHIRT DID YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? Larry David because you didn't have the Henry Rollins one in my size. WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING/WATCHING/LISTENING TO? At this moment I am listening to Van Morrison - Astral Werks in my friend's apt. One of the speakers isn't working and she just found out about this. She said, "I can't believe I just learned of this problem." But she shifted the balance so we're good. WHAT WAS THE LAST GREAT MEAL YOU ATE? In bed last night I ate a bag of Trader Joe's beef jerky (teriyaki), three pieces of fried chicken from the deli, a bag of cheez doodles (puffy), and Welch's fruit snacks. That was it. WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU TREASURE? My iPhone battery chargers. On Lenmar Meridian battery case, two Anker Astro mini lipstick chargers. I would be lost without them. WHAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE YOU HAVE EVER BEEN TO? There is a beach on the same piece of land as Coney Island, in the Northeast part of the land mass. It's a beach but you can see so much of New York from it. WHAT DO YOU LIKE/DISLIKE? I guess I like/dislike my own writing. Sometimes it is good, other times not good. I also like/dislike my ex-girlfriends. WHAT ANIMAL WOULD YOU BE? Someone told me there is a Korean delicacy called "poop pigs." They eat human poop and supposedly taste fantastic. So, because I can't think of any other animals right now. I would be a poop pig. WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON THE NEXT DEERDANA SHIRT?
