List your top three favorite songs from Winter Break.
Kevin Stansky: "Heartbroken, In Disrepair" by Dan Auerbach, "Powerful Stuff" by Sean Hayes and "Shake Me Down" by Cage the Elephant.
Russ Halliday: "Lumos! (Hedwig's Theme)" by John Williams, "Here I Am, I Always Am" by Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band and "Nobody's Business But My Own" by Taj Mahal.
What is your favorite song lyric, and from what song?
K: "See the young man sitting in the old man's bar waiting for his turn to die" in "Broadway" by The Goo Goo Dolls. That '90s stuff really gets the tears flowing. Pretty great band and even better band name.
R: Well, since "Lumos! (Hedwig's Theme)" is an instrumental piece, I'll have to go with, "And I don't want the world to see me, Cause I don't think that they'd understand" in "Iris," by The GGD.
If you wrote a song entitled "My College Experience," give a lyric from it.
K: "Spent some time in Hatch, some more in Druck to match, hope my computer isn't snatched." I'm not much of a lyricist.
R: "If the automatic flushing toilets in the union jump-the-gun one more time I'm going home...ooh ahh baby."
Who inspires you? If you could dedicate an album title to him/her, what would the title be?
K: My lizard, Bob. He really knows how to relax and do nothing all day. It's really hard to literally do nothing for an entire day. I tried multiple times this break. I would entitle my album dedicated to Bob "Sands of Time." It sounds epic and you have to change the sand in his cage every month or so.
R: Elvis. "Little Joey blowin'" on a slide trombone."
Would you ever join a rock band?
K: Yea most definitely, Russ and I were part of a really bad, wicked fun rock band in high school. We had an eclectic musical arsenal including covers of Rage Against the Machine and original hit singles such as "Shuffle Board Champ."
R: Ask Stansky about Schnorrgasm. Reunion tour next summer.
K: Any musical other than "Cats."
R: "Wicked" was a wonderful theatrical extravaganza, but I anticipate my roommate George's role in "Hair" will not disappoint.
If you could rename a song, which would it be and why?
K: "Sweet Baby James" by James Taylor. I always thought it was weird he mentioned the "baby version" of himself in the chorus—it reminds me too much of Ricky Bobby's obsession with "Baby Jesus" in Talladega Nights.
R: "Pale Blue Eyes" by The Velvet Underground. I would change it to "Pale Green Eyes." I prefer green eyes.
Why did you decide to become DJs?
K: So I could procrastinate and listen to music for an hour without feeling bad about it.
R: Wolfman Jack. And to play The Goo Goo Dolls.
Are we humans or dancers?
K: Not really sure what that means. Probably humans though—I'm not a fan of The Killers.
R: Generally humans, unless The Goo Goo Dolls are on the radio.
What is the best musical instrument ever invented in your opinion?
K: The infamous indie banjo harp.
R: The recorder.
What song would you dedicate to your pet?
K: Any Bob Marley song, probably "Mellow Mood." My lizard's name is Bob.
R: "Boris the Spider" by The Who to my dog, Tuffy.
Best country song ever written?
K: "Angel from Montgomery" by John Prine.
R: "I've got Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks.
Favorite Disney Channel-turned-pop star?
K: Justin Timberlake. He seems like a nice dude and he played a convincing likable jerk in "The Social Network."
R: The boy from "Even Stevens."
Which four U.S. presidents would make a great band together?
K: Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Abraham Lincoln.
R: Andrew "I'm sorry Ms." Jackson, F.D.R., John "Sammy" Adams and George W. Bush.
