What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
It’s a complete toss-up between Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails at Red Rocks. The Radiohead show was really pretty neat because they played for like two hours straight, they played all my favorites, and it was the last time the group came to Colorado. The Nine Inch Nails show, though, was definitely the better performance. I’ve never seen stage production come together like in that show. The most recent concert I went to was actually Blues Traveler at a small vineyard in Palisade, Colo. That was really fun because the audience was very small, and I actually caught one of the harmonicas that John Popper threw during the show!
What is your favorite adjective?
There are so many to choose from that I’m not sure I’ll be able to narrow it down. One word that I’ve been using more and more is “clevickerous,” which I made up. It’s a combination of “clever” and “tricky,” and I’m hoping those Oxford folks adopt it in the next few years.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by today?
Like many kids, I used to ask my mom thousands of asinine questions once I learned to speak. She would patiently answer each one, and then I would always ask how she knew the answer. Without fail, my mom would reply, “Because moms know everything,” and that usually would shut me up. If there’s one lesson I still try to live by today that my mom instilled in me, it would be that moms know everything.
