1. Alias First name?Jeff. Everyone thinks I have a lisp when I first tell them my name.
2. Were you named after anyone?Both my grandfathers: first name, middle name
3. Do you wish on stars?Well maybe the moon more so than the stars. The moon and me are tight.
4. When did you last cry?Yesterday listening to "A Drive", "You were frail like a skeleton, all you needed from me was a greater pain to soak you up." Or something like that. Nice use of one of my favorite lines from James Tate, and just the song in general is a beautiful snapshot of parallel private hells.
5. What is your favorite lunchmeat?Turkey.
6. What is your birth date?April 25th 1867.
7. What's your most embarrassing CD?I'm going to extend this to my record collection. Robin Gibbs' solo album Robin's Reign. Probably the worst album ever recorded, how anyone was ever convinced that he was the genius of the Bee Gees can't be fathomed. It is a sum of parts. People forget the early Bee Gees is really great, "To Love Somebody" is a remarkable song as is "Massachusetts".
