Favorite movie monster?
If aliens are considered monsters, which, I believe they can be, my favorite are Tim Burton’s martians in Mars Attacks. I could not love them more. If aliens are not monsters, then Mogwai/Gremlins.
Best horror movie you've seen recently?
Remakes: Yes or No?
Yes, because I’m a special effects geek, so even though I appreciate old school effects and esthetic, I have just as much of a soft spot for psycho-looking remakes! If it can benefit visually—I’m in. I’d like to see a remake of They Live or Brainscan.
What bands inspired you to play music?
The Beatles, Melvins, They Might Be Giants, Weezer, sElf, and all of my friends’ bands.
What do you like to do when not playing music?
Punching bees. But when there are no bees around, I like going to see shows, writing apocalyptic science fiction or pop philosophy and I love exploring in the outdoors. I also like working around the house painting, fixing it up, or leaving town on a weird vision quest in a new city.
Munsters or Addams Family?
Addams all the way—more twisted.
Favorite song to play live?
Whatever the fans are yelling out to hear or maybe “Nothing Will Be Fine.”
Favorite moment on stage/tour?
Too many tour moments to name one. On stage in general, all the times I sang a duet with Lzzy Hale.
Misfits, Ramones, or Cramps?
I like the Cramps and the Misfits about equally. If I had to pick, I’d go with Misfits. SKULLS!
Being underestimated or wrongly judged, drama for drama’s sake, mushrooms and onions masquerading as delicious.
Favorite Halloween memory?
Halloween Dress-up Karaoke
What would you like to have written on your tombstone when all is said and done?
Here lies Meta—loving wife, daughter and bee-puncher.
