Singer, musician & extraordinary songwriter, Van Hunt, had the distinct pleasure of speaking with his biggest fan (your girl!) for the Gawker Review of Books. He's passionate about mathematics, boxing, George Clinton, and good music criticism. Which is to say: the influences for his songs, (like on his new album The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets) come from just about everywhere. You can even read an excerpt of one of his short stories AND learn about his anonymous trolling of UFOlogists. Yes.
