I stay home to watch: Stop Making Sense… and have dancealongs in my bedroom… with my sisters… in our PJs…

Worst childhood memory: my naive lack of sarcasm comprehension at the age of 5, the time my little brother’s teeth crumbled and fell out (due to an enamel defect)… a terrible enough memory… and then my uncle told me “that’s what will happen to you if you eat too much candy!” and I believed him, genuinely…horrified…

Personal heroes: Carol Kaye, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Professor Judy Grimes

Nobody knows I: have always had a bad habit of grinding my teeth to the rhythm of whatever song is stuck in my head, usually unaware I’m doing it.

You may have seen or heard me: menacing a street near you with my bitchin bike gang, the Tri-Cycle Tramps. We cycle together….in more ways than one…

I’ve never been able to: whistle

If I could change one thing about myself: I’d be a dreadlocked Jamaican man, so the world would accept me as a reggae bassist.

People who knew me in high school thought I was: self-righteous…. and purportedly “most likely to become president”

My fantasy is: to find true love without even trying.

My most irrational act: pissing on all of my belongings to attract a mate. Oh wait…no…that was my cat.

Pigout food: vanilla malts

When I’m not working, I’m: running laps or taking naps.

If I’ve learned one thing in life: Musicians are the coolest people in the world.

The three words that best describe me: I’m a dreamer.
