Published Mar 01, 2001Who are you?
What are you up to?
Eating George Forman grilled chicken (dry).
Hometown and current HQ:
Legend of Zelda, ocarina of time, making enemies in the hardcore scene.
Mind altering work of art (not your own): Virgin Suicides movie, Killing Flame CD (they both suck and kick ass at the same time).
Most memorable/inspirational gig and why? Shallow North Dakota/Kittens/Smooter/New Grand Sonic Unyon Christmas Eve show, London in 96. Tony (Shallow) broke the drums and inspired me to play again. At a later date I told him he was my idol, he looked at me like I had issues.
What should everyone shut up about?
Everything, I dont care what you think, and you don't care what I think.
Your greatest strength and weakness:
Alcohol capacity vs addiction to buying punk/hardcore records.
Your vital daily ritual:
Wake up to phone call that isn't for me, check email, Legend of Zelda (2-3 hrs), shower, eat, Coke, Coke, Coke, cartoons, Coke, Cosby (the new one), eat, Simpsons, Coke, sitcoms, lie paralysed on a couch, email, Coke, harass people on the internet, TV, Coke, sleep, dreaming of Coke and couch.
Guilty pleasure: Neil Diamond.
If I wasn't playing music I would be: Whittlin' a gun to kill people that ride the bus with me.
Your most memorable day job:
Wendy's. I liked the times when I would have seriously killed myself to get out of work.
Best/worst advice received:
Best : you should drink that 40 of Colt 45 that's been in the fridge for 2 weeks with no cap on it.
Worst : you should drink that 40 of Colt 45 that's been in the fridge for 2 weeks with no cap on it.
I would drop everything to play a benefit for: Myself.
What makes you want to take it off and get it on? Hallowe'en mask style devil horns.
What personal trait would make you kick someone out of your band? And have you?
Band nazism aka Joey Jeremiah syndrome. People that don't listen to the other members ideas, and try to control everything.
When I think of Canada I think:
Better tasting Coke than that found in the States.
Music and sex: Is there a difference? Why?
Both involve inserting something and pressing the right buttons, but one sounds a hell of a lot better (hint: not the one that makes a slurpy sound).
Strangest brush with celebrity:
Hasnt happened yet, well at least with anyone other people would care about meeting.
What does your mom wish you were doing instead?
Playing sports and shopping at The Gap.
