Favorite word: “Dig it” that’s two words but spoken fast enough it counts as one.
A personal goal: To stop “tweaking” my music and just start playing live. The problem with writing and recording at home is the same with all Artists who create something alone. “Its good… but I can just add/subtract this and it will be better”. I need to just put it down and let people hear it.

Favourite Word: Apparently it’s “like,” since I say it all the time
Favourite fairytale: There’s a little known Grimm’s fairy tale called “Fair Katrinelje and Pif-Paf-Poltrie.” It’s about nothing of substance and has no moral outcome, but it always made me laugh when I was little because I thought the German names sounded funny.

Favorite fairytale: Well it’s this traditional Thai folk tale/dance, I can’t remember the name of it. It’s about a woman… well actually it’s a chicken. She seduces a prince with her beautiful dancing, and then I’m pretty sure she turns into a princess, maybe.
Favorite word: Hypnagogic
Personal Goal: Maybe to get a personal goal? I am too busy living in the moment, and I’m constantly finding something new to peak my interest. I guess in the short term to continue dancing and living life!
All time favorite Vog: The GetUp Dawson City, because in them it’s always a boot scootin’ good day.
Favorite Fairytale: Thumbelina, I mean, who wouldn’t want a bird friend named Jacquimo and to sleep in a walnut shell? The Beetle Ball is always my favorite part.

A personal goal: Just recently joined up with some peeps to help get a small scale initiative off the ground, burrito project Montreal, where we make burritos and distribute them by bike to the hungry and the homeless around the city. There’s a few in other cities too, the original coming from LA, start one in yours! It’s wicked fun and the rewards are many and often delicious.
