Eight possessions that define you:

Seven favourite movies/TV shows that go on your mix-tape:

A Scanner Darkly, Entourage, Wilfred, Arrested Development, The Room, Californication, Trainspotting .”

Six bad habits you can’t escape:

Four things that turn you on:

Two live gigs you’ll never forget and why:

“So many great gigs but two of the best were…Biffy Clyro at The Hi-Fi. A three-piece band who put every ounce of energy into every song in their set.

One day left before the apocalypse and you…:

“Have a barbecue and acoustic jam session at Frosty’s place with all our friends/fans.”
