What is the best album ever created?
AC: Neutral Milk Hotel's "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," Modest Mouse's "The Lonesome Crowded West," and The Magnetic Fields' "69 Love Songs" are all great albums, though.
AS: Any album from Lucky Ali has to be the best one. The soundtrack of "Rang De Basanti" is also awesome.
What's the best band to see live?
AC: Limiting it to bands I've actually seen perform, I'd have to say Phish.
AS: Bollywood Dance Group from ANOKHA!
What song pumps you up?
AC: Volcano, I'm Still Excited!!'s "In Green" always gives me a strong desire to go do something violent and awesome.
AS: Right now, Roobaroo from the movie "Rang De Basanti" is warming my ears.
What song brings you down?
AC: DeVotchKa's "How It Ends" and Iron and Wine's "Upward Over the Mountain." They're both gorgeous and sad..
AS: "Kabhi Aisa Lagta Hai" by Lucky Ali.
If you were the dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?
AC: Soul Coughing's "Casiotone Nation." The lyrics change every time you sing it! It would make me laugh, and drive everyone else crazy.
AS: Mwah...just "DJ Abhishek" pasted million times...
If you were on stage with a mic in front of thousands of screaming fans, what would you say?
AC: That's a scary situation! I'd hand the mic to Abhishek and run away.
AS: First they will need to shut up (so I can talk), and then I will say "Wuzzzzzzup...any brown people in the house?!"
