What do you get when you take a strong minded entity with the heart of a tortured gypsy and put pen and paper in front of her?
You get the creative written and visual work of Aung Munster. Your probably familiar with her from her writing here on Garage-Girls. She has recently launched her swag site “Outspoken Mimes” and we decided to try to get into her head, check her out…..
GG. Tell us about you, where are you from, what are you into and what do you like to do with your free time?
AM.I’m from Massachusetts. As for what I’m into: writing,art,composing. I play a couple of instruments. Creating in general,which occupies most of my time.
GG.How did you find your passion for your craft? How long have you been doing it?
AM. I don’t think passion can necessarily be sought-& in that sense,it can’t be found. I believe that it’s something that has to be within you. I’ve alway’s been into creating things. When other little girls were playing with dolls,I was concocting “magical” serums w/random household products. Lemonade,Windex,Pop Rock candy etc. & I had used a few of my mother’s vases as test tubes. I had become a mad scientist at a very early age!
GG. What do you love most about your artwork?
AM. What do I love most? Probably that it confuses people-which is actually complimentative,in my opinion. If a design or something I’ve written provokes thought/ponderings-that’s contentment to me.
GG. Do you have a sweet car or a motorcycle?
AM. I have a car-yes,but no it’s not the least bit sweet. I would love to own the Batmobile. Or even a replica.
GG. What are you most passionate about in life?
AM. Anything that stimulates my mind. Music. Art. Literature. Writing is actually my forte. Everything from lyrics,to poetry to short stories.
GG. Is there anything you would love to learn to do?
AM. I would love to learn how to play the piano. I can play “Chopsticks” & “Home Sweet Home”-but that’s the extent of it!
GG. Where would you most like to visit?
AM. Definitely Paris. I would just immerse myself in the culture-not only for that reason,but I would also love to visit Jim Morrison’s grave.
GG. What is your idea of relaxing?
AM. I have a pretty large yard that overlooks a lake,so when I need to relax I literally just spawl out in the grass. When I have time to read I usually do that out there as well. It’s very peaceful.
GG. What type of music do you normally listen to?
AM. What most would consider “alternative.” The Cure,White Stripes,The Doors,Rob Zombie. Radiohead. INXS. Just to name a few! I’m also into jazz,classical. It depends on my mood. I dig just about everything except country&rap.
GG. Do you collect anything?
AM. I do. I collect oddly shaped/colored rocks-not random rocks you would find on the ground. Some are jellybean shaped rocks that are multi-colored. Some have crystals in them. What can I say. I’m into rocks!
