Thank you so much for having me! Well I’m Randi Joan, I’m a multi-media artist, musician, writer, and stylist from upstate New York! I am the live rhythm guitarist/keyboardist for Debris Of Titan (they just released a debut album and we have lots of EPs dropping left and right) and I run a vintage and Japanese inspired fashion blog.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
Wow, I think it still honestly has to be this national award I won in high school for photography. I tried very hard, taking a finished photo every day and submitted about 50 entries! I didn’t make it to finals the year before and it was my last chance. I made it though and teared up on stage. It made me realize I could do anything if I put my all in it and didn’t give up.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
When I’m complimented on something that can’t be replicated, that is unique to me. Usually if I’ve helped somebody, especially just by being myself. On my fashion blog I recently had somebody tell me my photos were a body-positive motivation as they struggled with an eating disorder. That blew me away.
Do you have any guilty pleasures or indulgences?
I’ve tried to turn my major one into something productive (referring to my blog). Haven’t been good at doing that with fried food though!
What is the funniest thing you have witnessed or happened to you?
I once fell down an upwards escalator, which was…as remarkable as it was, enduring.
If you could change one thing about the world, what will it be?
More empathy, less fear. That goes hand in hand with honesty. With yourself and to others. People deceive themselves all the time and when you hide from what you are or how you feel, or let those things rule your day to day life…we suffer. We act out. We hurt and oppress others. We lie. Even when we think it’s for the best or not a big deal. There’s no reflection or quiet time in this busy world.
Which genre of movies do you enjoy most?
Cinema is one of my favorite things ever so honestly, I’ll watch anything. I get a kick out of well directed movies. Where the cast has chemistry. The characters and writing have growth. The plot has depth. And the cinematography is interesting. Since I work with visual media, I really pay attention to highly stylized shots. Or just when you can tell it’s very intentional with its concept, if that’s something you tend to look for! Bonus points if the wardrobe and soundtrack are amazing.
Funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
I suppose anyone who thought it’d be easy and quick, haha.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Randi. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I’d say sexy is all about being yourself and being it passionately. It has little to do with outer beauty. If you’re a soft and quiet sexy, or a bold and loud sexy, when you are comfortable in your mind and body you’re happier. Attraction is more mental than physical for me but everyone is different. I have to feel as if I’ve glimpsed your soul and that you can understand my own. Once that’s there, everything about you is a magnetic glow. Uniquely sexy.
When both our guards are down and the vulnerabilities can be understood, you’re easier to be around and I admire that confidence to just be completely yourself. Who you truly are, your thoughts and feelings and opinions, what you like and dislike, your ideas, your criticisms, your knowledge, past, and plans for the future. That’s what catches my attention because I love learning about people.
