I’d be a good Emperor: Brad Rothbart talks RMM

Brad Rothbart, long time friend, brilliant artist and art lover, talks Radio Mara Mara. Click for tix!

In Radio Mara Mara, Masa the DJ plays tracks for a fleeing populace. If you were running to the border, what song would def be on your playlist, and why?

Thick As A Brick by Jethro Tull. It’s a 42 minute-long song, and it’s totally it’s own thing. That way, for 42 minutes at a time I could forget I was running to the border – and I think I’d need that.

E.G. and Leoni live exiled from Mara Mara and the Leunsa Valley for over a decade, all the while missing the sweet sweet fruit of the Grundub Tree. If you were exiled from New York [or insert here the place you call home], what’s the one food you would most miss?


The DJ and the Archivist are well aware of the need to pack a kit for any kind of extended journey, either into the Wet Mara Canyons, or running from violence. What’s the one, non-practical thing you would include in your disaster kit?

Everything can be rationalized as practical, but probably the stuffed toy seal that I got when I was little. He’s my seal of approval. 🙂

If New York were bombed out and war torn, would you stay or would you go?

I would stay and try to become Emperor of whatever came next. I think I’d be a good Emperor, and I’d love to create Hippieopolis in the shell of the old society.
