Jeff Stieber of Hull


1. Which book are you currently reading?
The Forever War by Dexter Filkins. He is a journalist who simply recalls a bunch of events while in Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, etc during the Iraq war and the “War On Terror”. Full of graphic shit about what happens over there, how everyone including Americans can't be trusted and how we fucked everything up. Or at least I see it as how we fucked everything up.

2. Do you smoke?
I smoke yes, even weed on occasion. Most everyone else in the band smokes weed constantly or close to it except Nick. Do you smoke? Get off my back.

3. When was the last time you got angry?
I don't get angry very often at all but I did become quite agitated a while ago when I went to hop onto my bike to go wherever the shit I was going to find that someone had beat the shit out of my front wheel. The rim was bent to shit and was completely unrideable. Parking your bike outside a high school in Brooklyn is always a bad idea so it was partially my fault but those mother fuckers better learn some god damn manners. Shit heads. I've moved since.

4. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
Men don't cry! Men drink beer, and when the beer runs out we cry, beer. Circle of life

5. Was there a movie that you could not bear to see until its end?
I'm not sure I know what this question is asking so I will try to answer as best I can. So umm when I was maybe 5 I had a really bad ear infections which I used to get often. My mom had scored a bootleg copy of ET on VHS! When I woke up screaming and crying, mainly because I ran out of beer, my mom threw on that movie. It was staticy and you could barely see anything. I screamed through the entire movie, until the very end when my brain stopped feeling like it was exploding. That's my story. I guess the question has been answered?

6. What character would you have liked to have played?
Not sure if this question is referring to the previous or just a character in general. If the previous ET obviously. You can fly and do weird shit, although it might have been a bit hard getting laid but I bet that glowing finger can do wonders for the ladies. If any movie character the obvious answer is “The Dude” but to be different I would say Baron Munchausen from The Adventures of Baron Muchausen. He rides a canon ball, goes to hell, visits the moon, gets eaten by a fish and survives it all. Terry Gilliam is a genius!

7. "Law & Order", "Special Victim Unit" or "Criminal Intent"?
I can't say I know either of these shows but after asking someone “Which one of these shows has more fucked up shit?” the answer was Special Victims Unit so I'll go with that.

8. Who do you currently have a crush on?
Most chics in NYC that love to wear as little as possible during the hot summer months. I also have a thing for MILFS...but who doesn't

9. What's the best moment of your day?
Riding my bike over the Williamsburg bridge from work. I know I'm so close to Brooklyn and don't have to go back into the shit of Manhattan again for the rest of the day. Fuck Manhattan!

10. What song of yours do you think is your best?
Everyone loves Viking Funeral and it is damn fun to play. Deliverance off Sole Lord is also damn fun to play, got some fun drum parts. But the new shit we are writing is so far the best. The new song we have which is currently nameless has some awesome brutal parts that I can just beat the shit out of the drums and some awesome guitar parts that definitely give me mid-drum-strike boners. Glad I get to sit down when we play. Boners

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...

Sarah Jezebel Deva of Angtoria


1. Which book are you currently reading?
I am reading two. One on Vietnam and the other on Jack The Ripper. But its taking me ages to get through them because I am easily distracted. Small brain I think.

2. Do you smoke?
Sometimes yes, but if my fiancee reads this, then no I don't! To be honest, my dad just got diagnosed with Emphysema, which was caused by his smoking, so this should kinda be my wake up call.

3. When was the last time you got angry?
A few days ago when I found out about that stupid bitch that threw the puppies in the river to kill them. She is lucky I cant get to her. One of her mates filmed it and then posted in Facebook. It made the headlines. People are disgusting.

4. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
Oh it was a while a go but one that springs to mind is the scene in the film Step Brothers where the bunk beds collapse. That got me. Was in tears.

5. Was there a movie that you could not bear to see until its end?
This film called Covenant. No story line and had to switch it off after 45 mins. I wasted 45 mins of my life trying to work out what was going on, if anything. Twillight is also close... biggest pile of crappy toss vampire puke ever! Ha ha... sorry... :(

6. What character would you have liked to have played?
Poison Ivy in Batman :)

7. "Law & Order", "Special Victim Unit" or "Criminal Intent"?
None of them. NCIS and CSI :)

8. Who do you currently have a crush on?
I don't. Unless my cat counts.... ;)

9. What's the best moment of your day?
My and my fiancee arriving at this hotel (We went away for a few days to Bath. A Roman town in the UK) without killing each other cos we got really lost. The hotel is in the country and its just peace and quiet... Its lovely.

10. What song of yours do you think is your best?
Oh dear. I am very critical ... I have to be otherwise I would never improve. Er...... I am gonna have to say Daddy's Not Coming Home because I wrote it when I was 12 and its about a child being raised in a violent home. I wrote it from a childs point of view and I am proud of it!

I try not to take notes on anger.

4. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
Borat in the theater.

5. Was there a movie that you could not bear to see until its end?
I walked out on Anchorman but love it now. For some reason, I can't stay awake for all of Blade Runner but that has more to do with always starting it at 1am than anything else.

Pacino in "The Devil's Advocate."

7. "Law & Order", "Special Victim Unit" or "Criminal Intent"?
Gotta go SVU.

Today? Waking up to more positive album reviews. Generally speaking? Done work, dinner with girlfriend.

10. What song of yours do you think is your best?
Difficult to say. "Quietly, Undramatically" is the most dynamic, "Hatred is Our Heart" is possibly the best combination of hooks and aggression, "Solitude" is written very well... You pick one.
