Buzz Osborne of Melvins

1. Which book are you currently reading?
I'm reading quite a few actually. I usually have 10 or 11 going at any given time. Here are a few of them:
"The Abolition of Man" C.S. Lewis
"The Tempest" William Shakespeare
"I Hate Your Guts" Jim Norton
"Winter's Bone" Daniel Woodell
"Role Models" John Waters
"Down and Out in Paris" George Orwell
"The Mysterious Montague" Leigh Montville "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" T. E. Lawrence "The Man Who Would Be King" Rudyard Kipling

2. Do you smoke?
Not at all.

3. When was the last time you got angry?
I got all hacked off at some airport security line jumping old bitch when we were on our way here. Just walked right in front of me. I LOUDLY protested that there was in fact a LINE that we were all waiting in and she just stared at me like I was crazy. Which I am...

4. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
God who knows. I find all sorts of thing funny. We went to the Minnesota State Fair recently and there were some large hogs that had gotten loose in the swine house and they were running wild. It was funny AND dangerous. Always a winning combo.

5. Was there a movie that you could not bear to see until its end?
Avatar... I did actually make it through the whole thing but I wouldn't EVER sit through it again. No fucking way. James Cameron should have his fucking head examined. For a movie that blew what was it, 200 million to make, it seemed like they spent about a buck seventy five for writers. What a pant load... A pant load of heavy handed, mega PC, teenage political horse shit. By the half way point I would have helped the miners destroy the "injins" magic tree myself! Don't get me wrong, I LIKE science fiction movies but I couldn't stand this. I heard it described as every preachy, stomach turning, "eco" bumper sticker you've ever seen made into a movie. Knowing how the stupid, self serving "powers that be" think, James Cameron will probably end up getting a Nobel Prize for this fucking dog shit... Which was probably his point to begin with.

6. What character would you have liked to have played?
Fred C. Dobbs in "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre." This is by far the best movie ever made. I could watch it over and over and I have. At least 80 to 100 times easy. I can pretty much recite the whole script at this point.

7. "Law & Order", "Special Victim Unit" or "Criminal Intent"?
Don't watch TV. Haven't for well over 20 years. Haven't missed it either.

8. Who do you currently have a crush on?
Elvira. Or maybe Kim Novak in "Bell Book and Candle." Yeah, let's say Kim Novak as a groovy, beat-nick witch... Jesus fucking christ it just doesn't get ANY BETTER!

9. What's the best moment of your day?
First cup of coffee the first thing in the morning. Blast off!

10. What song of yours do you think is your best?
Billy Fish. Billy Fish or maybe Black Bock...

  1. i'm glad he said Black Bok...although it's not my favorite it is an amazing song

  2. Eat green peas or suffer the consequences

  3. 10 to 11 books at one time. That's impressive. Oz writes really solid lyrics. Guy can read like a satanic widowed librarian too. Hot damn. I hate all that preachy Hollywood artsy fartsy shit too. Glad I'm not alone.
