TROLLHATTAN

Lilou & John talk about how photographs can trick the eye | Lilou explains why serial killers kill people | They come up with a handy solution to the Amazon mosquito problem.

John: The topic of the day is photography and how we interpret images. This picture is from Trollhättan, or “Trollhattan” as they would say in England.

Lilou: Yes it is. I used to live there.

John: Trollhättan is a city in Sweden, renowned for it’s SAAB industry, but when I see the picture I think of a 17th century slave fort on the Gold Coast. I read about Johan Vilde, or “John the Savage” as he would have been called in English, when I was a boy. What did you read about when you were a girl, any particular favorites?

Lilou: I read books about near death experiences, serial killers and UFOs.

John: Why did you read about serial killers, that’s an odd choice for a young girl? And for the record, you didn’t “read” about them like some kids do, just to be able to look cool, you actually knew everything about every god damn serial killer.

Lilou: It’s not “cool” to know everything about serial killers, it’s weird. But I did it to find out why they could do such evil things.

John: And why did they?

Lilou: Because they chose to.

John: Simple as that?

Lilou: Yes, simple as that.

John: It’s logical when you say it. People could have the most fucked up childhoods and turn out to be kind people, and some people are spoonfed from birth and still commit the worst crimes. It comes down to what you choose, I guess.

Lilou: Yeah.

John: But let’s go back to the picture. Why did you shoot that … whatever it is?

Lilou: Because the structure is powerful and fascinating and the river looked like it was about to flood it.

John: I can imagine there could be crocodiles there, and sharks, but that is my imagination taking me back to the southern Atlantic ocean in the mid 17th century.

Lilou: I used to read about sharks as well when I was a kid. Love those bullsharks.

John: Yeah, after listening to you for 11 years I know exactly what bodyparts I should not dip into the water in what places.

Lilou: Guess the thing I had for Air crash investigation has been put to good use as well.

John: Yes we rarely fly anywhere. And we don’t tip our toes in the water in the Amazon River. Not that we have been to the Amazon River, but if we were, and we are not, since we have to fly to get there…

Lilou: …And I hate mosquitoes.

John: Do you think Bolsonaro will ban mosquitoes if he becomes president in Brazil? I hope so, anyway.

Lilou: Nuke them.

John: I don’t think they have A-bombs, but they would be useful for once. Anyway, I love the picture.

Lilou: Yeah it’s almost good enough for Madame Revolutionary.
