I stole this from Sheila.

What music are you currently grooving to?

I’m currently stuck on three things: Clutch’s Blast Tyrant, Chamillionaire’s Ultimate Victory and Beck’s GameBoy Variations.

Here’s Beck’s “GameBoy/Homeboy” [Que’ Onda Guero], remixed by the band 8-bit, using sounds from a GameBoy. Very cool stuff.

“Top 25 Most Played Songs on iPod”
I have a Nano, so my iPod selection is small, compared to my overall music collection, but this is the music that mostly gets me through my workday (at least this week), so I don’t have to listen to the radio of the woman two cubicles down who has a Michael Bolton fetish.

What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite album?
I hate this question, just because it could change every day. And because there really is no ONE good answer. Well, maybe Faith No More’s Angel Dust. Or..wait, Weezer’s Blue album. Uhh..no, what about Queens of the Stone Age – Lullabies to Paralyze? Or Black Flag’s Damaged? WAIT! I MEANT DARK SIDE OF THE MOON! No, no I meant……..ah, forget it. I’m not answering this.

What was the first record you ever bought? And where did you buy it?

I’m not counting the Patridge Family albums I had. Or Leif Garret. Or that other guy in the early 70’s with the blonde hair that everyone loved. Bobby something. We’ll fast forward to when I was about eleven years old. I saved up my allowance and walked to Modell’s (before it was a sporting goods store, it was a crappy department store) to purchase Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy, but walked out with Dark Side of the Moon instead.

Which musician have you ever wanted to be?
None, really. Always seemed like too much trouble. Though, if I could ever be a guy for a day I might want to be Henry Rollins.

What do you sing in the shower?

In my shower world, I am a star. I sing in musicals. I belt out songs from South Pacific and Guys and Dolls and The Music Man and West Side Story and, most of all, Jesus Christ Superstar. On those days when I want to spend a little time in the shower, like if I have to shave my legs or play with the shower head, I will attempt go through almost the entire soundtrack. By the time I get to this song, there are people banging on the door. Not just Todd or my kids needing to get into the bathroom, but my neighbors, begging me, for the love of Jesus Christ Superstar, to stop the noise. Of course, in my shower world, they are actually begging me to sing MORE and LOUDER and saying things like WHY AREN’T YOU ON BROADWAY? To which I say, Oh, but I am. Showerland is a great place to be.

What is your favourite Saturday night record?

Saturday night is for feeling energetic, like you could go out on a drinking rampage and get into a bar fight and then maybe go drunken bowling and then cruise down the main strip in your hot rod until the cops chase you home. That’s if you drank. Or had a hot rod. Or liked bowling. Or if your town had a main strip. Doesn’t matter, I still listen to the Supersuckers, Evil Powers of Rock and Roll as if we weren’t just driving to Home Depot for a bucket of grout.

And it’s favorite. No U.

And your Sunday morning record?


The “name our Halloween town” thing will remain open til tonight, by the way. There are some really good names there so you’ll have to be creative to match up to what’s been offered already.
