1. Dogs or Cats? Why?

Carson:  Dogs for sure.   You wouldn’t take a cat to the park…or could you?

Eric: Definitely dogs. I'm not down with stanky litter boxes--I'd
rather clean shit up outside...

DJ:  Dogs, because dogs

Tony:  Dogs, cats are pricks

2. Aliens. Do they exist?

Carson:  I’m sure in this universe, there’s another form of life out
there.   Killer Clowns for outer space was a documentary.

Eric: I've never had any close encounters but it's hard to make the
argument that they don't exist. They have to-right?

DJ:  Sure, have you seen our president?

Tony:  Tom Delonge tells us they do, when is he ever wrong?

3. Drug of choice? (None is not an option btw)

Carson:  Love is a drug

Eric: Again, very hard hitting questions. This one's tough. I don't
fancy myself an addict so I feel lucky that I'm able to stay content
with smoking herb daily and drinking beer whenever it's time to party.
That being said, the old school "H bomb" was pretty awesome!

DJ:  Netflix and gummie bears, any order

Tony:  Beer

4. Brown or white gravy? (Neither is not an option btw)

Carson:  I’ll take brown with my poutine

Eric: GuessI'll go white...but I'm probably only saying that because
I haven't sampled enough different brown.

DJ:  White, but I'm not racist.

Tony:  Brown, but only from KFC

5. Favorite weapon of mass destruction?

Carson:  Rick Astley

Eric:  I'll refer to question 3 and go "H bomb" here too. Plus the H
bomb generates that sweet mushroom cloud.

DJ:  The Trump

Tony:  The internet

6. Favorite marsupial?

Carson:  Wombat

Eric:  Gotta go kangaroo. They "kick" ass ;)

DJ:  I love me some french onion.

Tony:   Sugar Glider

7. Favorite Superhero?

Carson:  Wolverine

Eric:  The Amazing Spiderman

DJ:  Eric Gumm, yes he is my fucking hero

Tony:  Black Dynamite

8. Did Dez catch it?

Carson:  V.D.?

Eric:  Sigh...That catch, ruled not a catch (which it was), will
forever leave me wondering what could've been--I hate it for Romo way
more than Dez, another classic example of why ole Tones Romes' legacy
in Dallas will be tainted

DJ:  Damn right he did

Tony:  Dez who?

9. When you die, if you were given the choice to come back as any animal, which would you choose?

Carson:  Fire breathing dragon.  Animality!  TOASTY!!!!

Eric:  Man, definitely gotta go something like an eagle because flying
would be cool as hell. Or would it be just as cool to be a sponge...

DJ:  A Dire wolf.  GOT, bitches

Tony:  A human.

10. The best MJ is: Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Mike Jones, or Milla Jovovich?

Carson:  Milla J is what I say!

Eric:  Might have to go Jordan but it's close...I'm not so sure
Michael Jackson made is big of an impact on music as Jordan did
basketball. How can anyone possible know that.

DJ:  Milla is def my girl.

Tony:  Milla Jovovich

10 Questions Interview w/ The Me-Thinks + Stoogeaphilia by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

Welcome to a Special Edition of FWN's 10 Questions Interview.

We are honored to have not one, but two legendary 817 bands - The Me-Thinks and Stoogeaphilia - combine their powers to bring you the most voluminous 10 Questions Interview to date.

We got Marlin from The Me-Thinks along with Ray (The Me-Thinks & Stoogeaphilia) plus answers from Ken, Matt and Richard of Stoogeaphilia. Revel in it!

1. Dogs or Cats? Why?

RAY:  Cats.  Because they are Outlaws, Satan Worshippers and I love them!

MARLIN:  Pork or beef usually, but whatever.

KEN:  Self-evident. (Funny: Sir Marlin Von Bungy couldn't believe that there was someone in this band called "Katboy" and that it wasn't Ray. It isn't me, either.)

MATT:  Cats, because they don't give a fuck. Until they do, then they give ALL the fucks. And you must, as well, servant human.

RICHARD:  Both. Although leaning towards dogs more these days. I've handled my share of cat box treats.

2. Aliens. Do they exist?

RAY:  I fucking hope so.  No way humans are the A-#1 Duke of the Universe.

MARLIN:  Of course. But don't tell the orange president.

KEN:  I want to speak to an attorney.

MATT:  Statistically speaking, they must. Hopefully they are nicer than us. And if not, hopefully they never find us.

RICHARD:  Certainly.

3. Drug of choice? (None is not an option btw)

RAY:  Romantic Comedies (on Weed!)

MARLIN:  Depends on whether the question is coming from my probation officer. Lets just say none to be safe. But talk to me later.

KEN:  Endorphin.

MATT:  If I had to pick one, it would be Diet Dr. Pepper.

RICHARD:  A good ol' PCP laced, red wine enema.

4. Brown or white gravy? (Neither is not an option btw)

RAY:  I am allowed no gravy.  Sore subject.  Next Question!

MARLIN:  White.   

KEN:  Alfredo.

MATT:  I will avoid gravy-choice evangelism and say that both have their moments. White on biscuits, anything chicken-fried, potatos, grits, starchy things. Brown on turkey & dressing, potatos, beef dishes. Really, if somebody sets gravy down in front of me, it's going on my food. Period.

RICHARD:  I kind of agree with Matt on these things.

5. Favorite weapon of mass destruction?

RAY:  Favorite?  Giant earthbound Asteroid/Meteor would be rad on an Extinction Event/Out of My Control level.  But if I had to pick how I wanted everyone to die?  Maybe a heroin bomb.   

MARLIN:  Taco Casa Taco Lite.

KEN:  Stratocaster.

MATT:  Targeted asteroids.

RICHARD:  Music.

6. Favorite marsupial?

RAY:  Koala.  Because a Platypus is a Monotreme not a Marsupial.

MARLIN:  Never been to Mars before.

KEN:  My Wife.

MATT:  Possum. Did you know female marsupials have two vaginas, and males have bifurcated penises? Penii? Penes? Penae? I digress...

RICHARD:  Tasmanian Devils.

7. Favorite Superhero?

RAY:  Bizarro Ted Cruz.

MARLIN:  Wonder Woman.

KEN:  Jon Teague.

MATT:  According to my friend Daniel, I'm already a superhero. My super power is the Power of Indifference. If not me, then Zorlak the Avenger.

RICHARD:  El Duce!

8. Did Dez catch it?

RAY:  I was always a Keith Morris/Ron Reyes guy.

MARLIN:  that is between him and his doctor. None of my business. 

KEN:  Who is Dez?  What is “It”?

MATT:  This is a sports question, right? No clue, not a big sports fan.

RICHARD:  Is this a Black Flag reference?

9. When you die, if you were given the choice to come back as any animal, which would you choose?

RAY:  The Lazy Trinity of I do what I want…House Cat, Otter or Three-Toed Sloth.

MARLIN:  The one from the Muppet Movie.

KEN:  See first reply.

MATT:  An alien superhero, Zorlak the Avenger. Then I could prove #2 conclusively.

RICHARD:  Party Animal.

10. The best MJ is: Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Mike Jones, or Milla Jovovich?

RAY:  Mick Jones because he was in the Clash and Foreigner.

MARLIN: Is Mick Jones an option? That would be my answer. Either from Foreigner or the one from the Clash.

KEN:  Michael Jackson.

MATT:  Multi-pass.

RICHARD:  Mick Jones.

Today's featured song is the 2016 single release from 817 rockers Treehouse Cabaret. They score points in my book for both the band name and the song title.

Seriously, they're so good at naming things, thinking I'm gonna bring them on as a consultant to name my future children.
