Published Feb 01, 2001Who are you? Daniel J. Souliere, aka MC Rockbot.
What are you up to? I run around, work, travel and cause a general ruckus.
Hometown and current HQ: Orleans, Ontario; Evil Robot Headquarters.
Current fixations: The Ataris, Catch 22, Boysetsfire, The Sun also rises, Alyssa Milano, chocolate fudge cookies and milk.
Mind altering work of art (not your own): A beautiful piece by an exquisite yet unknown artist, it is a golden painting of a hand and a steak, done by Katia.
Most memorable/inspirational gig and why? Birthday parties in Orleans, never forget, small venue, hard rock...robots.
What should everyone shut up about? Oprah Winfrey and her book club. It isn't cool, nor is she.
Your greatest strength and weakness:
Strength: outgoingness. Weakness: marshmallows
Your vital daily ritual: wake up, shower, sleep more, drink a large glass of water, toast with nutella and a half asleep drive to my education outlet.
Guilty pleasure: The Simpsons, buying music, cannot get enough, christmas cookies.
If I wasn't playing music I would be: Not playing music.
Your most memorable day job: Music store, fun is fun.
Best/worst advice received: Best "think of the one the one that you are infatuated with and then pick the other". Worst: "the snowbank has hardened, I'm sure that you can make it over that fence".
I would drop everything to play a benefit for: Tibet.
What makes you want to take it off and get it on? Girls.
What personal trait would make you kick someone out of your band? And have you? Skipping out on shows, that's just rude.
When I think of Canada I think: Canada rules, water, trees, clean, good beer.
Music and sex: Is there a difference? Why? Yes. Difference, music is something to you can let yourself fall into, sex needs help.
Strangest brush with celebrity: I saw Tom Green at a Tim Horton's. We sat and he made a very large mess with the sugar dispenser.
What does your mom wish you were doing instead? Mostly anything. She doesn't really know what I do.
