    Anything folky and acoustic. Lately, Archer Prewitt.

    Islands.

    12. Band you find yourself listening to the most right now.
    Metric

    13. Most hated band?
    Generally the pop-punk-emo bands. Fall Out Boy is really lame, as is Panic At the Disco and all of those over-hyped shitty bands.

    14. Song that makes you think?
    Ones with big words that I don't yet know the meaning of.

    15. Band that you think the world should love as much as you do?
    Tegan and Sara, The Elected, Rilo Kiley, Feist, Stars, Metric, etc.

    16. Coolest music video?
    I don't know. I like the Islands one, and The Elected's but I don't watch many.

    17. Music video with the most babe watch?
    Huh?

    18. What do you play/would you play in the bedroom to spice things up?
    I wouldn't do that... However I do play records to spice things up, I guess.

    19. Can you play a musical instrument?
    Slowly picking up (acoustic) guitar.

    20. Ever been in a mosh pit?
    Yes but I never really wanted to be.

    21. Are you in a band?
    Nope.

    23. Ever dated a musician?
    Depends on what constitutes as a musician.

    28. Do you wish yourself that you were a musician?
    Yes.

    29. Best chick band you know of?
    Tegan and Sara, even though there are a few guys in the band as well.

    31. Last song that you heard on the radio/cd...etc...?
    The Decemberists - July, July!

    32. What do you think of Classical music?
    I like Chopin and Tchaikovsky, and most classical music, but I don't listen to it much. I have a Beethoven record that I listen to while sleeping.

    33. What do you think of Country music?
    I don't enjoy Reba-country. I like old fashioned country music. If Jenny Lewis or Amy Milan are considered country, or The Elected... that's the kind of country ("alt-country" as it's been tagged) that I like.

    34. What do you think of Death metal?
    Eh... I like Pantera, that's about as heavy as I get.

    35. Last BIG band that you saw live?
    Islands have 7 people, so that's big right? I saw 311 about 3 years ago. Visited some friends in NH and they gave me a ticket. It was okay but the band got kind of boring.

    36. Are you a groupie?
    Not... really..

    37. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?
    I have listened to some foreign music, I don't mind it.

    38. What famous musician would you like to fuck!?
    I've got a big thing for Jenny Lewis, Emily Haines, and Leslie Feist. Mainly Jenny Lewis.

    39. Worst concert moment?
    Death Cab/Modest Mouse at some park in Chicago. I bought all 4 tickets (one of me, 3 for my friends) mainly so I could take Rumy. The 2 other guys left right when Death Cab started to go find a club, and Rumy had to go with them for some reason, so she missed half the set. That sucked ass.

    40. Funny concert moment?
    When the guys around me were grabbing ass during crowd surfing moments.

    41. Sad concert moment?
    The thing from 39.

    42. Best local act you can think of?
    That Rabbit's Dyn-o-mite.. even though they're from Atlanta, GA.

    43. If you were a musical instrument what would you be?
    Jenny's guitar, or keyboards, or whatever other instrument she plays.

    44. Do you listen to the radio?
    Not unless I left my iPod at home or forgot to bring my CD's to my car.

    45. Do you watch music TV?
    No.

    46. Do you follow the music charts, like the top 40?
    El no.

    47. Have you ever met any famous musicians?
    Uhh I sort of brushed past a couple musicians, none of them really famous by general standards.

    48. Are any of your friends/family/etc. musicians?
    Some play guitar and shit but nothing huge.

    49. Song that best describes your feelings right now?
    No lyrics that I can think of, just a lot of music that fits my moods from day to day.

    50. Song that describes your life?
    Nate Baker - I am a person that is alive.

    51. Do you know the names of all the band members that you listen to?
    I know certain band members.

    52. Does a musician’s physical attractiveness play a role in the music that you listen to?
    If they're ultra sexy, it affects me... Just that I want to meet them more, but not by much. Physical attractiveness doesn't really matter.

    53. What famous musician do you want to marry?
    Jenny Lewis, or one of the Quins, or.. I guess that's it.

    53. Favourite movie sound track?
    Not quite sure.

    55. Any musician pet peeves?
    When bands decide they have to dress like assholes because they're so hip.

    56. What do your parents listen to?
    Dad listens to classic rock, mom listens to Christian music.

    57. What are you listening to right NOW?
    More Decemberists.

    58. Do you wear band T-shirts?
    Indeed I do.

    59. What do you think of people who do?
    Depends.

    60. What music sub-culture do you feel like you belong to?
    I'll leave that up to people who give a shit.

    61. What song is stuck in your head right now?
    Zilcho.

    62. Do you sing in the shower?
    Not very often.

    63. If so, what? If not, why not?
    The Vagina Song.

    64. Would you rather marry a musician or be one yourself?
    I think I'd rather marry one, while being a fairly decent amateur guitar player. That way I could enjoy the concerts and road life, etc.

    66. How important is your partners taste in music to you?
    Sort of important. As long as we both sort of enjoy the same stuff that'd be great.. We could go to the same shows, stuff like that. Although most the people I meet, if not introduced by a friend, I meet through liking the same music. So I'm not too worried about it.
