B: "Mingus, your modeling career has taken off! Just months ago, people only knew you as Vespa's brother or got you mixed up with a jazz composer and bassist. Now, the name Mingus makes people think of your pure genius."
M: "Thanks, Barbara. I always knew that I would be famous. It has always been a matter of 'when', not 'if'."
B: "Tell me about your breakthrough."
M: "Well, Barbara, the pivotal point had to be my Lord of the Rings shoot. I was hired to be an extra hobbit, but after the photographer saw my mad skillz, she pulled me aside and let me be the lead. I was Frodo! One ring to rule them all!"
B: "Let's discuss your famous photo. Mingus, what were you thinking about here?"
M: "I was channeling my feelings when Vespa gets a treat and I don't. I'm sad. I'm distraught. I can't believe it. Life is so unfair. "
B: "That's fascinating! How about this picture? What was going through your mind?"
M: "Oh, that's a good story. I was thinking about this other time that the cats got a treat and I was not allowed to eat it. I wasn't even allowed in the same room. My guardians made me sit and stay while they fed those cats treat after treat after treat. I get all riled up just thinking about it now!"
B: "Wow, that is heavy. You are really abused by your guardians!"
M:"I know, I know. However, there are good times. Like the times I get treats. In this next shot, you can see me channeling my feelings when I do get a succulent, delicious treat. I am happy! I am thrilled! I am ecstatic!"
B: "Uh, I see a central theme here..."
M: "Hey, Barbara. Do you have any treats?"
B: "No, sorry."
M: "What? You mean I wasted my time for nothing? There's no payoff? Later, lady. I am so done with you and your stupid questions."
