    3 Ago 2009, 19:17

    1. How did you get into 29? Audio Karate
    well a really long time ago I bought "Punk Rock Is Your Friend #4" when I bought another CD on CD Universe don't remember why I bought it but I think it got good reviews and was cheap and it is a very amazing album but I never really listened to it until last Sept when I put all my CDs on my ipod and it came on shuffle. but Audio Karate were one of the best artists on that album. really good band. and that CD is really amazing tons of pop-punk legends on it worth checking out. released on Kung Fu Records. now I just really have to buy Buddha cause it was released on Kung Fu Records too and the in between tracks are probably hilarious like on this CD hah. <3

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Pete Doherty
    hm I don't remember but I was listening to the radio and Alan Cross was playing a song by The Libertines and was saying how he was a talented man and I really liked that song so ever since I've loved him but I always did like him. even when he was in the news all the time. he was just a rock star trainwreck and it was so cute and adorable. <3 and his new song "Last of the English Roses" is fucking epic!

    3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33? Comeback Kid
    oh Comeback Kid I love this band so much. but only when Scott was the singer he was the best. I really miss him. he had so much energy and I loved his screaming it was perfect now Andrew's screaming kinda irritates me so I don't really like it but it's still alright not the worst. but Scott was the best. as for favorite lyric is in "False Idols Fall". Ill just put the whole lyrics of the song since they are all amazing.

    We’ve been counting down your days
    Going over every false THING YOU SAY
    We wish it could be different
    We wished you stayed the same
    Tearing down our idols
    living life OUR OWN WAY
    Taking the chance to say

    All my heros are dead
    All my heros are dead

    Were we too blind to see you were only human like me
    But we can’t help but feel
    Empty words they're all you gave
    Struggling to take back our days

    They build you up to watch you fall
    Can’t you see they can’t be what you want
    You build them up to watch them fall

    Where did we lose control
    We thought it'd last forever

    We're come and count away your days
    Our heroes are not what they used to be (OUR IDOLS FALL)
    Our heroes are not what they used to be (OUR IDOLS FALL AWAY)

    4. What is your favorite album by 49? Tim Armstrong
    well I think there's only one so "Life of A Poet" I think it's called I don't own it. only downloaded songs. great album though.

    5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Gorillaz
    just one. Demon Days. wanted it for so long and like last year or the year before I bought it finally. great album but I don't listen to it anymore.

    6. What is your favorite song by 50? lets just say it's Gregory Isaacs since there's no 50.
    favorite song is "Tumbling Tears" not many people know him but he's a roots reggae artists similar to Bob Marley and around at the same time but just really underrated. I grew up listening to him because my dad is from the Caribbean and listens to a lot of reggae and stuff. really like my dad's taste in music. I learnt a lot from him.

    7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? k so that would be The Strokes and Limp Bizkit
    so The Strokes would probably be "Someday" maybe or "Last Night" but their music is pretty up beat I think. <3
    as for Limp Bizkit I really don't know hah. and I really don't like them that much anymore. they're such a 90s band around when all the shitty pop music took over. they kind of saved us but Fred Durst has such a shit personality I think Wes was the one who really saved them always loved that guy. and supposed he's a painter or something. <3

    8. What is your favorite album by 15? The Ataris
    well I guess it's "So Long Astoria" cause I haven't listened to "End Is Forever" yet because I haven't added to iTunes. but every time I go traveling really far or start something new in Sept or the Fall "So Long Astoria" is pretty much all I listen to other than Relient K and it's happened so many times before it just seems like almost every time I'm in that situation that's something that makes me comfortable. but every time I listen to "So Long Astoria" I get really nostalgic too cause I grew up listening to that CD ever since I was 15 and I dunno sometimes when I think of that time of my life it just makes me feel so nostalgic cause I listened to it so much and always love Kris Roe. he's such a nice person who loves his fans and loves music.

    9. What is your favorite song by 5? Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    well I didn't used to like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs when everyone in my class liked them. that was around the time that "Maps" was pretty big but by the time "Gold Lion" came out I loved them and still do. I downloaded Fever to Tell and Show Your Bones off of and I listened to Fever to Tell 4 times in a row. so into that album it's so good. but I think I'm kinda tired of listening to it so I'm just gonna listen to other music so I don't get too tired of it. but that was a huge tangent. so..
    fav song would be "Date With The Night" or "Gold Lion" or "No No No" or "Y Control" or "Zero". Karen O is sooo fucking cool. need to see her live.

    10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? Muse
    hm not really. their music is kinda weird and I always thought that but it is still amazing and has some of the best lyrics Ive ever heard. they're such a great band but I guess "The Small Print" or "Time Is Running Out" would have to be it. got into them when I was 15/16 they were one of the only good bands I listened to at the time hah.

    11. What is your favorite album by 40? since there's no 40. Crystal Castles
    I remember reading an article in the NOW magazine saying that Crystal Castles aren't even really know in Toronto but they're known all over Europe or something and I was like who the fuck are they. I didn't think their music would be good but I love it "Air War" has to be my favorite song. so cute. as for favorite album I don't own any so I wouldn't know but I'll prob buy their newer one eventually probably at a show or something. :)

    12. What is your favorite song by 10? Kevin Drew
    oh Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene what an amazing talented man. <3
    fav song. his whole solo album is amazing I think I like it even better than Broken Social Scene music but I really do love Broken and they changed my life because they were one of the first indie bands I really got into and loved. so.
    fav song: "safety bricks", "gang bang suicide", "frightening lives", "big love", "backed out on the", "bodhi sappy weekend" and "tbtf".

    13. What is a good memory you have involving 30? Billy Talent
    hm Billy Talent really don't know but I guess I compared one of my guy friends to Ben Kowalewisz of BT. I dunno though. they kinda had the same personality a bit. I dont I really have too many too. Ive always loved Ben though my fellow Sagittarius hah. <3 bu I guess way back in the day I used to listen to "This Is How It Goes" all the time. not too much of a good memory though I dont think. not that it's a bad memory but meh.

    14. What is your favorite song by 38? Silverstein
    oh Silverstein I love this band so much! :D
    so it would be "If you could see into my soul" or maybe "The Ides of March" or the 3 last songs on "Discovering The Waterfront" such a great album. all the song are good. another one is "Already Dead" the intro is fucking epic. the drumming is amazing. arghh. so good. really love this band.

    15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? The Flatliners
    yeah "Do or Die" I think. my favorite song by them for so long. such a great band.

    16. How many times have you seen 25 live? Down With Webster and DJ Shadow
    yeah DWW seen them so many times back in the day they used to play the Beaches Jazz Fest every year and they were the best artist there. really miss them being there and then I saw them more recently at the Mod Club for their Christmas show. lmao there was soo many 13 yr olds it was kinda embarrasing for them probably aha.
    ok and as for how many times probably 5 times I think maybe more.
    as for DJ Shadow haven't yet but I prob will someday. :)

    17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? Rancid
    hm don't remember. it was on the radio. must have been "Fall Back Down" or "Ruby Sohos" or something. not their best songs though.

    18. What is your favorite album by 11? Alexisonfire
    probably Crisis. really good album. all the songs are good. amazing artwork. go buy it you won't regret it.

    19. Who is a favorite member of 1? The Shins
    really don't know who any of the members of The Shins are and I really don't care right now. I'll probably find out eventually though.

    20. Have you ever seen 14 live? Ramones
    ha! I wish man. I wish I was around at the CBGB's times and could hang out there all the time would be epic. really love the Ramones and wish Joey and Johnny were still around but especially Joey was such a great guy. it's too bad they're not around. but I guess that's what drugs do to you...

    21. What is a good memory involving 27? k so City and Colour and the Smashing Pumpkins
    so City and Colour um for the longest time I thought Dallas Green was George Pettit and I was so confused cause George Pettit screams hah and I was like wtf? would he be singer hah. it was pretty funny
    as for the Smashing Pumpkins
    when I went to New York a couple years back with my school when we were coming back to Toronto it was a 12 hour bus ride and so we slept on the bus cause we hadn't sleep previously and it was the night. so me and my friend Jennifer were next to each other and she was sleeping but I couldn't fall asleep and I was just listening to Melloncollie and the Infinite Sadness but only the "From Twilight to Starlight" on repeat over and over and it was amazing. brings back so many good memories. it was a good time. and when we were coming back we stopped at Tim Hortons which was really close to Canada but it was still in the States and it was amazing. I dunno that trip was really amazing. <3

    22. What is your favorite song by 16? so Beck and The Saint Alvia Cartel

    The Saint Alvia Cartel probably "Drugs" or "Don't Wanna Wait Forever"

    23. What is the first song you ever heard by 47? since there's no 47 I'm just gonna pick Garbage

    um. I'm really not sure since it was a while ago but it must have been "Push It" I think. amazing song.

    oh man this guy is fucking hilarious in between sets hah. love him. saw him at the horseshoe a couple months ago.

    25. What is your favorite song by 21? The Rapture
    well I have a lot of their songs but haven't listened to most of them so I would have to say "House Of Jealous Lovers" such an amazing electro song. <3 and such a talented band too. toured with Daft Punk a while back.

    26. What is the first song you ever heard by 26? well since there is no 26 Im gonna pick DJ Shadow

    44. What is a good memory you have involving 46? no 46 so Garbage
    um probably being like 11 or 12 and listening to them all the time and thinking I was so cool hah. <3

    45. What is your favorite song by 35? oh god ok so Ozma, Tsunami Bomb and The Vandals
    Ozma: "Turtleneck Coverup" and "Game Over" both on Punk Rock Is Your Friend #4. amazing album.

    Tsunami Bomb: don't really like them that much but since they're a punk band and one of the members of the band is a fan of blink or Tom Delonge and I think that's pretty cool. um not sure what that was supposed to mean hah. maybe "Say It If You Mean It" but it's not that good of a song..

    The Vandals: ok I already did this. not doing it again. lmao.

    46. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy? The Airbourne Toxic Event.
    probably "Wishing Well" or 'Something New" but it doesn't really make me that happy lmao.

    47. What is your favorite album by 4? blink 182!
    omg thanks for this question! my favorite album by them is Cheshire Cat. used to listen to it every morning before going to high school and it was the only fucking thing made me feel like going cause I really hated it at one point. but this album really helped me.

    this girl I talked to when I volunteered at this marathon kinda thing when I was 14 or 15 talked to me about blink and good charlotte who I liked at the time and told me blink's best album was Cheshire Cat and now I realize she was right. she was the same age as me. I don't know if I'd recognize if I saw her again but a lot of people know her that went to one of my high schools cause she lives in the same neighbourhood as me and we used to volunteer at the same place. I wonder if she still likes blink though. she was so into them hah. but Cheshire Cat is such a great album. has a punk sound to it which I love. it sounds so raw and awesome and I love that. I wish blink could sound like that again. would be really awesome. <3

    48. Who is a favorite member of 37? ugh soo many questions about the vandals fuck that Im going with Silverstein and it's the lead vocalist and Paul probably he's amazing. <3

    49. What is the first song you ever heard by 43? ugh Angels & Airwaves again? ugh so it was "The Adventure" a really long time ago on some guy who found the leak and put it on myspace. really thought their album would be better and less gay than that hah.

    50. How many albums do you own by 20? The Cure
    none but I have a lot of songs. so really can't answer this.

    THE END. (finally).
