shout-out to PZO


PZO: What would be the perfect gift for you this holiday season?
Alex: Umm...I don't know. Being at home with family and friends, I guess.

PZO: What were you like in high school?
Alex: I was such a dork. I was kind of like the kid in between the cool crowd. Everyone in the cool crowd kind of liked me, but I didn't like them. But I think the reason people liked me was because I had dreadlocks.

PZO: What is the most misunderstood song lyric in your opinion?
Alex: Nothing yet, not on our album. Since our album is kind of new, no one really knows the lyrics that well, so at shows they sing the wrong lyrics, but that's about it.

PZO: What band would you like to see back together?
Alex: ummm.....Federal Lies, we're really big in 80's new wave, so.

PZO: What is th emost embarrassing CD in your collection?
Alex: umm....I have a lot of them. That's a good question. Probably the second Limp Bizkit record. What's the name of the album? I don't know.

PZO: Do you ever get sick of songs that are played on the radio all the time?
Alex: I don't listen to the radio. Radio sucks. All they ever play is Disturbed and Tantric. Disturbed, if we ever meet them, we'll beat them up.

PZO: Do you think MTV plays a positive or negative role in music today?
Alex: Umm...probably a negative role because they choose all the shitty bands to play. Like Disturbed and Tantric. Maybe if they chose better bands like the Deftones and stuff like that it wouldn't be negative. But they choose to put all the shitty music.

PZO: What is your favorite invention and why?
Alex: Ummm...I don't know. Umm... <silence> I guess that teleporting unit that they had in Star Wars. So I could teleport home after shows. I wish they'd really invented that.

PZO: Do you have any nicknames for each other?
Alex: Yeah, we call Randy R2k. He started talking like a robot and he started calling himself Randall Robot. So we shortened it to R2k.

PZO: What is one of the weirdest dreams you've ever had?
Alex: I live in a small city and...
<Steve from RX Bandits joins us again>
Steve: Sorry, I keep barging in on your interviews.
PZO: It's okay.
Alex: ....and a mountain exploded into a volcano and I escaped on a helicopter.
Steve: I was there.
Alex: Yeah.

PZO: What kind of thoughts keep you awake at night?
Alex: Dogs?
PZO: Thoughts!
Alex: Nothing really, I sleep good at night.
<Steve laughs>
Alex: I guess the only thing I really have to worry about is the number of records we have to sell to pay back Drive-Thru. We keep borrowing more and more money.
Steve: Like 1.97 this week.
<laughter><Steve leaves>

PZO: How do you flirt? What is your best flirting move?
Alex: I flirt by making jokes about me. Making an ass of myself.
PZO: Does it work?
Alex: Sometimes, I guess. I really don't chase them.

PZO: What is the strangest phone call you've ever received?
Alex: When I was going to high school, this girl was obsessed with KoRn and Jonathan Davis and somehow she got my number and she called me a lot. I never actually got to talk to her. But she wrote me an email and she told me how in love she was with me and she was going crazy on me. She would call my house all the time.

PZO: What is the most ridiculous rumor you've heard about yourselves, if any?
Alex: People have said that they met us and that we were arrogrant assholes, which is really stupid. In high school people thought I was a drug dealer. But I'm straight edge so, go figure.

PZO: Do you remember a wish you made when you blew out the birthday candles when you were a kid? Did it come true?
Alex: I've always wanted the batmobile. So, I haven't gotten it yet.

<Josh from Something Corporate joins in>
PZO: If you could be handcuffed to one person for the rest of your life, who would it be?
Alex: uh...
PZO_Nevra: How about Josh?
Alex: Josh...probably my, definitely my best friend Sophie. She'll be here.
Josh: uh oh.
Alex: What? She's my best friend.
Josh: uh oh.
Alex: uh oh.
Josh: uh oh. <Josh Leaves>
Alex: He's so stupid.

PZO: Who is the most famous person you have programmed into your cell phone?
Alex: Umm... probably Ross Robinson, he's our producer. Glassjaw....

PZO: Who's a cool up and coming band that you like?
Alex: Days Away!
PZO: Oh, yeah.
Alex: Have you heard of them?
PZO: Yeah, they're good!
