1. Who is your favorite artist?
i really don't know anymore. i always seem to come back to conor oberst

2. Do you play an instrument? If so, what is it?
i used to be able to play the recorder, along with every fourth grader that went to a las vegas elementary school :/

3. Put your music player on shuffle. What are the first 5 songs that show up?
-'take it easy (love nothing)' by bright eyes
-'lousiana hot sauce rainy nights' by the taxpayers
-'drug town' by this bike is a pipe bomb
-'bold with fire (french quarter)' by andrew jackson jihad
-'shameless' by say anything

4. What genre do you find yourself listening to the most?
punk, and its subgenres (particularly folk and the old school stuff and ska haha); indie and its subgenres (particularly folk and shoegaze)

5. Name a song that gets you pumped.
"a room without a windown" by operation ivy

6. Name 3 bands you consider to be overrated.
Oh maaan, hahaha...
-most of the 80s/90s rock bands that still play on the radio or still make albums...bands like greenday (i have an immense dislike for them ahaha), red hot chilli peppers, and anything like korn...i hate meeting kids who like those who think theyre musical interest are so refined and much better than others because they listen to motley crue or van halen...hair metal?--yuck :P
-various screamo/crunkcore bands...they are simply not my liking, with the obnoxious song titles and all the hairspray used on their scenester hairdo's...maybe if they spent more time on their music than their "scene"-look, they'd sound decent; don't get me wrong...i like some chiodos songs and dance gavin dance was an excellent band before they kicked out their original lead singer, fucking glassjaw is the SHIT...if anything this genre has some diamonds in the rough, which are even harder to find nowadays
-Sex Pistols...i don't hate them, it’s just that they get soooo much credit for ultimately being the "pioneers of punk" which isn't necessarily true; there were plenty of other, better sounding punk bands at the time and before; and besides sid could barely play his instruments and every song on "nevermind the bullocks here are the sex pistols" sounds dead-on similar, but "god save the queen" is quite a good song/album

7. What song are you listening to at the moment?
'survival of the fittest' by desaparecidos

8. How often do you listen do music?
too often; i like have my headphones glued to my ears or i'm in my room listening to something....it tends to make me a SUPER anti social in family situations

9. What band/artist got you into music?
bob dylan, i really love him. he opened to my ears to several other different sounds, and god his lyrics are all so beautiful and haunting hahaa

10. How many concerts have you been to?
technically, only five

-march 2008, at this annual thing they do here in vegas, extreme thing; that year, like every other was plagued by scene/screamo bands BUT surprisingly streetlight manifesto was on the bill...and i managed to get in the front, tomas kalnoky is really a fucking great musician

-september 2010, fyf fest...really big indie music festival in l.a. (one day, 12 hours long) got to see titus andronicus, local natives, ted leo and the pharmacists, and the mountain goats; i went by myself on 4 buses into downtown l.a., totally worth it

-december 2010, i saw dead kennedys at hard rock cafe, not with the original line up, but fuck that line up hasn't been original for years, the drummer had been with them since 81' i think and it was the original guitarist, bassist and vocals (yeah, he's not jello) were new

-feburary 2011, i went to this taco shop to see the taxpayers; i caught some other bands too who were surprisingly really good, especially this local shoegaze band called arminello.

-feburary 2011, i saw streetlight manifesto again. they played a waaaay longer set than before. i sang at the top of my lungs with sweaty strangers. kinda fell in love with mike brown and tomas kalnoky (AGAIN). threw up at the last song and got kicked out. meh, ah well great show.

11. Which defunct band would you like to see reunite?
hands down, neutral milk hotel.

12. Is there a band/artist you once hated but now love?
i didn't like modest mouse when i first heard "float on" but i really like modest mouse now...they're condemned nowadays for being "sell outs" but almost everyone is...i really like the albums "good news for who love bad news" and "the moon and antartica"

13. Vice versa to # 12. Any band you used to love but now hate?
meh. i can't really hate anything anymore.

14. How many songs/artists/albums do you currently have in your music player?
an unimpressive 1267

15. Name a band/artist you recently started listening to.
