    To Andrew W.K. : You're an artist who's not afraid to challenge himself with work in areas that would seem outside their niche to others, eg. Your Gundam/Anime albums, your appearance at the Gathering of The Juggalos. Why are you willing to take on such projects, and how do you approach them?

    How are you able to stay so positive?

    You are given carte blanche to throw a party. Cost, logistics, and the laws of time/space/physics are no longer an issue. Describe your party.

    You've been a darling of the internet "subculture", and have seemed to embrace it, to a certain degree. Why and how have you decided to do this, and what do you hope the relationship between you and the internet grows into?


    To Sum41: You're very popular in a number of different countries nowadays, do you still feel like you're a "Canadian" band, or an international one? Do you feel that there's any real difference between the two?

    You've done a lot of work with War Child Canada, what drew you to this particular charity, and what do you feel is the role of musicians in enacting positive change in society?


    Set your goals: You guys have contributed to a number of "cover" albums. What led you to put your own spin on crunk and acoustic music, and why do you think covers remain such a part of the "punk" scene?


    To everyone: What role do you think the internet has in building awareness for a band, especially one in a traditionally less-mainstream genre as punk/alternative, and what do you feel musicians are going to have to do differently as downloading continues to change how the business of music is done?

    ^Thanks man :) 

    I definitely want to ask Andrew W.K. how he got discovered. I heard Dave Grohl saw him performing on a street corner. So, I hope he can elaborate on that story :)

    For Face to Face:

    You guys have been together for a long time (in band years). What keeps you motivated (aside from money) to keep doing it? Also, Can you play Disconected with your eyes closed yet?

    Question for Set Your Goals: With a band name like Set Your Goals, what important goals have you set for the furture of the band.

    To Dillenger Escape Plan: You've gained a reputation for being hardcore and intense, and kept it for more than a decade. To what do you attribute your longevity? Do you feel that punk, emo, and other alternative streams of music are becoming "softer" as time has gone on? What do you see happening to the hardcore scene as other sub-genres have become and/or are becoming more acceptable and marketable in the mainstream music industry?
