"My life is sort of weird. I don't back off from things."—John McAfee, the newest weird resident of Portlandia. The software millionaire is on the run from police in Belize, and says he plans on staying in the Oregon town for "a few years." A local TV news station caught up with him for an interview. At Stumptown coffee, of course. Perhaps Fred and Carrie will befriend him.
Guys, this interview is pretty good. Snip:
John McAfee: Oh the media has no clue. Last night I actually started putting photos up of teams I used to collect information. That’s the first time I’ve done that.
[KATU reporter Emily Sinovic]: To collect information on what?
McAfee: On what was happening in Belize. The links between the Belize government and Hezbollah and the giving of false identifies of Hezbollah terrorists. They’ve been doing that for years.
Sinovic: What is it about Portland that makes you feel safe?
McAfee: If anybody is after me, it will be the Zeta cartel, Hezbollah. I can’t imagine Hezbollah showing up in Portland without being noticed. I mean, this doesn’t look like a place where they would fit in. Or maybe they would. I do not know. And I’m farther away from any other place in America from where the problem is.
The latest post on McAfee's crazyblog: "The Girls
McAfee: "A brief introduction to some of the the girls who... lived with me full time."
Thank god for the dudes of Portlandia: “I just wish there was a way for us to be validated for being such great feminists.”
