QUESTION | How often do you listen to music during the day?

ANSWER | All day.

What CD is in your car CD player right now (or what playlist is on your iPod)?

“Pitch Perfect” soundtrack.

What is your favorite band or who is your favorite musician?

Blink 182.

What is it about their music that you love?

The power, sensitivity, humor, and relativity of their lyrics.

Music often triggers a memory. Name a song and tell us what you think of when you hear it.

"All the Small Things" by Blink 182. First time I heard that song I had just gotten home from school in 6th grade. This was undoubtedly the first form of musical piracy, but I used to record songs onto cassette tapes from the radio. I don't remember ever hearing them before, but it was love at first sound.

If you could only listen to one CD/album for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

Gah! That's a really tough question. I'd say probably one of my mixed CDs. Yes, I've finally upgraded to CDs. I even purchase music now! I'm constantly making mixed CDs. I just like a little variety.

What song is the most over-played these days on the radio?

Any Taylor Swift song ever played is over-played.

What song would be most appropriate to play during a bull fight?

"What Does the Fox Say?"

If you had a straw, tweezers and paper clips as weapons, how would you fight off a raging bull?

I'd straighten the paper clips, shoot them at the bull through a straw, then use the tweezers to prune my eyebrows so I'd look good in my victory pictures.
