How does New Zealand's style differ from other places? We're a tiny country with a few brilliant creatives and a whole lot of white-trash douchebags.

Least favorite thing? It's claustrophobic as fuck but that just means the cool kids sort of gravitate towards each other.

Biggest misconception about New Zealand? That we're part of Australia.

Best clothing store? Children of Vision.

Favorite rap song? That's like asking which one of my kids I love more. "Party & Bullshit" by Biggie Smalls and "My Neck, My Back" by Khia.

Favorite bar? My local pub, D.O.C bar, has an Addams Family pinball machine and serves giant beers and toasted sandwiches.

Vote on whether today's subject is "Stylin" or "Wildin" below...

Favorite live music venue? Cassette no. nine on Vulcan Lane.

Best spot to pick up girls? Bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks. I pick up boys at D.O.C bar.

Best place to take a date? The abandoned building in Basque park in Newton. It smells like piss and rape but in a romantic way.

Who inspires your style? Freaks and sluts.

What country has the best style? I love all the little Norwegian metal kids.

Who has wack style? Ke$ha or anyone whose style is based on intensive market research.

What do you see as the next big trend? If Ke$ha gets her way, trashy grungy whores.

Dream job? Naomi Campbell's assistant. I like getting slapped around a bit.

Trend-proof style advice? Do what makes you feel hot as long as nobody else is.
