Shitty Interview No.60
If you aren’t one of her 56k instagram followers & already a massive fan of her “fuck age, it’s just a number” & general zero fuck giving approach to life, then I would love to introduce you to Sarah Jane Adams.
Sarah showed up on my instagram scroll a few months ago & it couldn’t have come at a better time! It’s hard not to notice yourself ageing as a 32 year old women, especially when its your job to sort through thousands of images starring youthful babes every day.
On top of that, there is instagram! A platform that enables us to carefully curate our lives, filter our photos & to go so far as to alter our looks. Even with this behind the scenes knowledge, it’s hard not to draw comparisons, we’ve all been there! It certainly doesn’t help that almost everyone I follow is younger than me!
Sarah is a reminder that getting older is nothing to fear. That age really is just a number. That with age comes knowledge, & knowledge is true power. Best of all, Sarah reminds us that you can still be rad AF well after your hair turns white.
Recently Sarah collaborated with Sydney based creatives, Fling Fling on this gorgeous short film & we are super excited to show it to you. Obvi’s we took this opportunity to shitty interview her too!
Sticks & Stones: Best thing in your fridge right now?
Sarah Jane Adams: On the road, so don’t have a fridge. Otherwise full fat, full cream milk. Cold.
Sticks & Stones: What makes you super angry?
Sarah Jane Adams: Fuckwits. People asking dumb ass questions like “How do you pin up your hair?” Not much really. I don’t get angry anymore.
Sticks & Stones: Worst thing that’s ever entered your mouth?
Sarah Jane Adams: The worst thing that’s ever entered my mouth is a chocolate bar with silver foil (wrapping) which hit an (amalgam) filling. You young things may not remember those types of fillings. It’s like an electric current direct to the brain.
Sticks & Stones: Last thing you had to say sorry for?
Sarah Jane Adams: Can’t remember. Did I??
Sticks & Stones: What does an ideal day look like for you?
Sarah Jane Adams: No questions. Sunshine. Solitude. Or creative project with someone who gets it. Clear desk. Quiet time. Silence. Washing done. Peace. Sleep.
Sticks & Stones: If you were a witch, what would be your favourite spell?
Sarah Jane Adams: Casting a spell which is random so we are all equally confused by the spell & the outcome??????
Sticks & Stones: If you could un-invent a smell, what would it be & what would you replace it with?
Sarah Jane Adams: Cheap synthetic perfumes, room fragrances, shit like that. Makes me sneeze. Replace with smell of newly harvested hay/corn fields.
Sticks & Stones: Good piece of advice based on your own life experience?
Sarah Jane Adams: Go for it. What’s the worst that can happen?
Sticks & Stones: Best thing you did today?
Sarah Jane Adams: Photoshoot in Joshua Tree, California.
Sticks & Stones: Please plug 5 things you are into right now.
