Published Feb 01, 2000Who are you?
The Rt. Hon. Aron M. Papernick.
What are you up to?
About 5'10". Besides that, I am finishing up school and aiming for a career in radio.
Hometown and current HQ:
South Central Thornhill, ON, Canada.
Getting live Black Sabbath tracks (with Ozzy of course) from Napster.
Mind altering work of art:
The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Axis: Bold as Love".
Most memorable/inspirational gig and why?
Grade 9 Talent show, because my guitar wasn't plugged in for the entire set, which consisted of
"Don't Cry" and "Alive", I think.
What should everyone shut up about?
Your greatest strength and weakness:
My amazing powers for retaining bits trivia, both a strength and a weakness.
Your vital daily ritual:
A cup of tea must start my day, or else stay back!!
Tossing out names for obscure and minute musical genres to those that don't understand them in order to look, sound, and feel cool. Example: "That band is sort of a post-film noir breakbeat-oriented, dark & smoky diva-vocal turntablist group with a strong sense of the postmodern Ninja-esque sampling ethic, while maintaining connections to the Brooklyn-Street-Corner-Jam-by-way-of-Jamaica-rootsof hip-hop in its purest form."
If I wasn't playing music I would be: Producing music, or criticizing it.
Your most memorable day job:
Being a camp counsellor for 5 & 6 year old boys, and having them call me "a fucking liar".
Best/worst advice received:
Best: Start flossing. Worst: Yo guy, that Cypress Hill toque looks phat! You should buy it!
I would drop everything to play a benefit for: Disabled Israeli Veterans.
What makes you want to take it off and get it on? A girl who could decipher my answer to question # 10, and tell me that she saw that band live, and that they were not so good.
What personal trait would make you kick someone out of your bed/band? And have you? Lack of appreciation for pornography. And NO!
When I think of Canada I think:
My Home and Chronic Land.
Music and sex: Is there a difference? Why? You can busk on street corners playing a MUSICAL instrument.
Strangest brush with celebrity:
I told Samuel L. Jackson I liked his performance in "GoodFellas" to sound like I've been following his work for a while. Then I remembered that he is on screen for about 3 minutes, then Joe Pesci pumps a bullet into the back of his head. He snorted, and said, "Yeah. Thanks."
What does your mom wish you were doing instead? Living in Israel working on the radio, so she could use visiting me as an excuse to visit the country.
