Super Punch Interview: Sonny Wilkins

(Super Punch interviews are posted every Monday. Please read the bottom of this post if you'd like to participate.)

Meet Sonny Wilkins:

1. PERFECT DAY. Seeing, discovering, and/or experiencing something new and mind-boggling.

2. ONE OF THE BEST MOMENTS OF MY LIFE. When I graduated college recently my Mom got to come which was amazing because she's incredibly sick. She has a 8 in 1,000,000 person disease called "Amyloidosis" (they talk about it on HOUSE a lot). Seeing her happy and proud of me was one of the best moments of my life.

3. MOST COMMON NIGHTMARE. Oh boy, I have LOTS of weird dreams. Most common has to do with this great big field covered in fog full of these big pillars, each engraved with all the evil and terrible things in the world. Thousands of them. I'm trying to climb up one. When I get to the top, a pearly white face with blacks lips and eyes comes at me from above. And I wake up.

4. THREE POSSESSIONS. 1) My white, stickered Stratocaster. It was the first guitar I ever owned. Even though it's cracked and worn and dying, I still play it. 2) My Walking Dead collection. I own every single issue, sometimes more than once. 3) My original copy of "Blood on the Tracks" my Dad gave me

5. To finish an EP with a guy who calls himself "MC Waterslide". To get better as a writer. To start my career as an Air Traffic Controller. And to spend as much time as possible with my Mom.

6. I'd love to be able to psionically interact with technology. Soon enough, everyone and everything will have technology on them at all times. The possibilities would be endless.
