There was some buzz when it was announced you were involved in First Night this year, most of it stemming from people who haven’t forgotten the Mooninite Bomb Scare in 2007. Did you expect to ruffle some feathers?
You can never tell. My goal, ultimately, is to do what I do best–entertain people. I’m really good at that. So, I just go with it! Whatever happens to me, I just treat it as an adventure. I treat it as a challenge and, to some degree, I believe those folks that say that, “If you treat your life as a video game, you can actually get pretty far.” It’s a weird statement to say, but think about it. You always wanna level up, right? You wanna save up for your retirement, how do you do it? Level up.
Do you think that your project will silence those Mooninite naysayers once and for all?
I think there’s a sort of strata of people who have hatred in their hearts and just need to be loved.
Do you think they’ll come away with that loving feeling afterward?
I’m trying to entertain people and show people how to have a good time. And show people that we really can be one city. My really big goal, and I’m super sincere about it, is to try to unite people as one family. Because we are one family, especially here in Boston. We’re not New York, we’re not LA. We’re not a giant, giant city. Let’s be one family, celebrate, and have a good time.
Anything else you’d like Dig readers to know?
I would encourage them to explore what I have online, as well. I have other projects – my audio visual group, Zebbler Encanti Experience. We do a lot of music videos and a lot of them are really crazy.
Catch Zebbler’s video mapping on the Boston Public Library as part of this year’s First Night. Just ten minutes, right before midnight.
