Transcript Poet, writer, traveller, philosopher, soldier, worker, and! LP : Is there a favorite book you identify with? TC : Jack Londons Call of the Wild. It was my favorite book as a kid. It planted the seed of wanderlust in me. Q : Your favorite decade? A : Easy, the 60s. It was an exciting, vibrant period. Great music coming out of Motown and the incredible social interest. Nothing has come close to it since. I was a starry eyed teenager just watching it all happen. Q : Do yo have a word or phrase that you find yourself, or others, using that does not make sense? A : I don't use it, but the word blosure' drives me nuts. Also the rampant abuse of the word hopefully. I wait hopefully for someone to use it correctly. Q : Your earliest childhood memory? A : That goes way back, around 1953 and the cornfields of Ohio. I was stretched out on the grass in our huge backyard at twilight, watching the stars pop out. I don't know where I was, or how I got there, but I was happy to be there. It was beautiful. What a way to start a life. Tom Carpenter gourmet chef. Aj glimpse into the life of a Renaissance Man. Interview by Pin Lim 'hotos by Pin Lim and Walter Coreas Q : Funniest word? A : I have to say cb'. (For reasons of decency, the word cannot be printed). Q : If you could live life all over again, what are some of the things that you would not do? A : Now theres a category thats overflowing the wagon. I wouldn't have only one child, I'd have two, maybe even three. Q : Can you name all jobs that you have held? A : All of them? Does that include hoeing that garden as a kid? My first job was a summer job working for the city in Ohio when I was 16. Then the Marines, a civil service job welding in Galveston at Ft. Point, then 23 years as a union iron worker building towering skyscrapers and graceful bridges all across America, from L.A. to Washington, DC and just about every city in between. I was a night watchman the for two years back in college. That was a great job, working the midnight shift, doing homework and walking under the moon and stars taking a break from studying. Q : Can you name all the places you have been? I've been to a lot of places, more than most people, but less than many others. Its easier to break it down into continents. I haven't been to Africa, Australia or Antarctica, but I am hitting Africa and Australia after I graduate. [Its] a present to myself for staying in college and getting a degree in Journalism. The Antarctica will probably remain unseen. I Q : What is the most memorable food that you would like to eat again? A : That would have to be Thanksgiving dinner when I was a kid. My mom was the greatest cook that ever lived. It was a feast fit for a king, or a scrawny kid with a bottomless stomach. Q : If you should die today and were to go to heaven, what do you think God would say to you when you see him at the Pearly Gates? A : I'd like to think He'd say, "We've been expecting you" But he'd probably ask, "What are you doing here?". Q : What other jobs would you like to sink your hands into? A : I think being a Forrest Ranger would be an ideal job, and maybe teaching teenagers. I think that could be a real adventure. Q : In your opinion, who is the most beautiful, ideal women? A : Thats easy, my Rainy Day Woman and Sophia Loren. .J^^^^^^m^^mmmmmmmmmmmm Macho Macho Man Carpenter climbs a scaffold while looking smart in one of the many buildings he has worked on. He has developed a gut of steel after twenty years as a construction worker. I am not Clark Kent Carpenter at ground zero in El Salvador after the devastating earthquakes. A relief worker explains about medical and food supplies coming in from the UN. Tom Carpenter 1297
