Q: Coffee or tea?

Sam Skolrood: Tea. What time of day is it? Tea, probably.


Cats or dogs?

Q: If you could have any super power, what would it be?

Skolrood: Flight.

Evan Khodeir: I’d go invisible.

Misko McGregor: Play the guitar [laughter], or sing.

Skolrood: Yeah, play the guitar or sing, those are super powers.  

McGregor: Yeah, they really are.


Q: If you could be any other member in the band, who would you be?

McGregor: No Evan.

Khodeir: Misko.

Skolrood: I’d be Evan, he’s handsome.


Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Skolrood: I want to be a graduate.


Q: Where are you guys from?

McGregor: Ottawa, kind of. I’m from two hours north of Ottawa. 

That’s not Ottawa.

McGregor: It’s pretty close.


Q: Two hours is not close.

Skolrood: Yeah, put him in his f—king place, honestly.

McGregor: It’s called Matawaki.

Skolrood: I’m from Vancouver.


Q: What is your favourite food? 

Skolrood: Evan doesn’t eat food.

Khodeir: Yeah, got to stay away from that stuff, trying to quit.

Skolrood: That’s funny, well done.


Q: Who are your role models? 

Skolrood: My mom. Cheers mom. .


Q: What are you looking for in a date? 

Gutz: True love of course.

Skolrood: Something to fill the enormous void in my heart.

McGregor: I don’t know, a good time, hopefully. Someone who doesn’t hate me.


Q: Would you ask your date to go for coffee or for beer?

Skolrood: Depends. It depends on the girl.


Q: Where is the best place in Kingston to take a date?

Skolrood: Ale house? Promotion. We don’t work there.

Cory Scholtz: I work at [Chez Piggy]. It’s a pretty good spot.


Q: Do you get a discount?

Scholtz: Yeah.


Is that okay to take your date somewhere you get a discount?

Scholtz: Oh yeah. It’s a power move.
