EXCLUSIVE: The 7th and Santa Fe Interview with Jag Dazzler

Jag Dazzler

In an exclusive encounter, 7th and Santa Fe goes one-on-one with a heavy hitter who’s not afraid to mix it up, max it out, or tax it twice.  We recently had the pleasure of probing Jag “Wildman” Dazzler: the activist poet and pacifist pirate known for stoking flames, stroking dames, and touching the American totem where it throbs.

7&SF: Let me start by saying, I’m a huge fan.  What do you think about that?

 JD: Thanks, I’ve always thought that. Fandom is important. It makes people feel more important, and feelings make reality feel more real.
7&SF: How have your influences influenced you?
JD: Namely through their actions and beliefs in what they were doing, which I imagine they derived from their influencers. So I really would like to give thanks to the imaginations of my influences’ influencers, the real deal. Additionally, when I am under the influence I tend toward inspiration, which is always aspirational.
7&SF:  Your last project provoked a lot of what-have-yous.  How do you react to that?
JD: I trend provocative. The what-have-you’s will come hand in hand with the what-have-you nots;  I believe in rolling the dough before the muffins rise. 
7&SF:  Recent events have people buzzing.  What say you?
JD: Get people drunk, and they will say anything, that’s what I’ve always said – drink?
7&SF: Knowing what you know, and having said what you’ve said, tell us more.
JD: It is what is left un-said that leaves people questioning, did he just not say that? 
7&SF: What does the phrase “it is what it is” mean to you?
JD: Principally “it is what it is” is a great phrase to toss around in a professional setting. It makes people feel like you know what “it” is, which provides you a bit of a leg up while giving the sense that you are a “total picture guy”, who is “grounded,” and not afraid to “call a spade a spade,” because “at the end of the day” “the net net” will increase “the bottom line.” At least that is “how I see it,” while always adding “from my perspective,” to “put a steak in the ground” without really having a real steak in hand. By the way, I could go for a steak dinner about now, you down? I’ll “write the whole thing off.”
7&SF: If you could ask anyone anything, would you?
JD: Most certainly. Asking things leads to answers; from right and wrong to just off-putting and odd, to the inevitable erotic outcome. My father always said, “man, if you don’t ask, you don’t get.” I’m a big believer in that. Buy me a beer?
7&SF: Anything you’d like to add?
JD: Bobby Falcon, you sir are an American, this country needs more of you. Remember to love yourself at least 3-4 times a day


  1. Jag, Ive got a question. When did you change your name? I thought it was spelled Dazzlah…

  2. Bob Thompson says:

    “stoking flames and stroking dames” – you’re my hero!
    And Luke, Dazzlah is the Aussie pronunciation of Dazzler. I can see how the spelling could be confusing. Unfortunately, phonetic spelling methods do not translate well from the land down under, though a book written entirely in Aussie phonetics would be quite entertaining…
