Y.P.R.1. Who do you encounter more often, fans who think you're really queer as folk or fans who think you really love the 80s?
Hal SparksI encounter more 80s fans than "Q.A.F." but I think that's because VH1 is in 80 million homes and Showtime is in 25 million. It's a numbers game. The real question is which fans are more... fanatical! I would say the 80s group wins again. But maybe that's cause most of them are younger... again it seems to be a numbers game.[Editor's note: Notice how the subtleties of the interviewer's question (i.e., "Do people think you're gay or nostalgic?") totally flew by Mr. Sparks's nuance detector. Love ya, Hal.]Mr. Sparks really likes the last few decades of American pop culture. His Web home is halsparks.com.
