Q. What concerts have you been to lately?

“Lately, i just saw three nights of String Cheese Incident in Colorado, Amazing! Then we went and saw EOTO in Crested Butte. I just say Zack Combs CD release with Wide Eyes and others at the cabooze too. I’ve seen probably over 400 concerts over the last three years, I’ve been busy.”

Q. Favorite restaurant?

Q. If you could make one famous person disappear, who and why?

“I would make the pope disappear, it would totally fuck with people. They wouldn’t know if it was a miracle, or a curse. :)”

Q. If you were an animal, which would you be and why?

“Its kind of a tie with me, I’d like to be tiger cause I’ve always liked them since i was a kid, but to be able to soar like an eagle would be insane too, so i guess I’d have to have the best of both worlds and be a phoenix. “
