What's the best prank that has been pulled on you?
So we were on the way home stopping in Denver after Bonnaroo 2010...
..and we found ourselves at a hipster piano bar with pretty funny dudes at the keys. I am outside smoking a cigarette and I come back in and sit with my "friends", next thing I know the next song the piano act guys are calling me up to the stage by name. Saying they had a special song for me. They had me sit on top of the white colored piano, while they busted out the song "Desperado" by The Eagles. Only, all the lyrics were changed to express how homosexual I am. "Gregory, why dont you come to your senses? You've been bent over fences for so long now."
The bar was packed. I got a huge round of applause at the end. Officially punk'd.
Edit: disclaimer for the ladies: I am heterosexual. Call me
Geez, way to make the rest of feel like jerks. "After I donate my kidney to a friend in need, I'll still make the effort to go Bonnaroo and see all my friends even though I'm not crazy about the lineup this year."
Bonnaroo 11-16 ~ Coachella 15, 17 ~ Newport Folk Festival 14-16 ~ Shaky Knees 14-16 ~ DesertTrip 16 ~ Moogfest/MOEMS 13-14 ~ Music Midtown 12-13 ~ CounterPoint 14 ~
An entrepreneur! When I was in grade school my mom subscribed me to Entrepreneur magazine and I loved reading about business ideas and the articles. I used to dream I'd goto Wharton (Harvard Upenn Business) and start the next fortune 500. True story: I used to run errands on my bicycle for siblings and neighbors for a rake of whatever it costs. Sure I'd by them a fifty cent popsicle, if they gave me a dollar fifty
Which was your most adventurous trip? What all did you do?
Bonnaroo 2010 roadtrip. 4,100 miles round trip in my 4runner. Three guys, one girl... all coworkers. Our stops included Albuquerque, OKC, Memphis, Roo, Kansas City, Denver, and Las Vegas. 12 days. What an adventure. Changed my life! Hell. I wouldnt be here if wasn't for that trip. (And I wouldnt be at that trip if it wasn't for here... funny how that works...)

What are you excited for (non concert/fest related)? What was the last thing that made you laugh? Do you dance in the car? Favorite type of pie? Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever experienced Deja-vu? First concert? Have you ever taken dance lessons? Have you ever cried because you were so happy? Hot tea or cold tea?
What is your favorite way to prepare chicken to eat?
I first read this question as "what's your favorite way to prepare to eat chicken?" My immediate thought was: a nice sweet corn side dish if you know what I'm saying ;). But to answer your question: mexican stlye chicken asada would be my choice!
What are you excited for (non concert/fest related)?
I am gearing up to start a youtube channel, and I don't know if this will be a succesful endeavor or a total bomb, we will see! Right now I am still in the planning and development stage, and I will probably will be collaborating with a creative friend who is interested in doing the same.
My short answer is "no"; but I do believe that the spirit and essence of someone who has died may come over you at one point and influence in a certain way or another. It is all dependent on how much value you attribute to that person, and how you spiritually emotionally feel by them. It's like people make fun of the Catholics because of the litany of saints... well.... to me the saints aren't really watching over us per se, but rather you can meditate and "pray to St. ---" or pray to your dead grandma or whatever, and what it does is it centers your mind and spirituality to really feel out what should be done or something.
I don't know. I am going to stop typing out an answer to that question because I have a lot to say. I also lately have been growing much disdain for the Catholic church, but that's completely independent of my spiritual nature.
YES. Wanna know the craziest part? There was a time when I had a crazy amount of Deja Vu in a concentrated period of time. Like an abnormal amount. It was all centered around the Total Access experience in 2011. I was having Deja Vu at the stages, backstage, in our living area and dining room, the trees. Multiple times a day. It started to freak me out. I was convinced that I had dreamed about Total Access before and all those dream moments were become weird vivid realities.
I think it's important to note too that that trip and experience was crazy life changing, and I'm not using that term in a exaggerated sense. I am definitely in a different spot in my life now because of that, in a variety of many ways. Someone once told me, Deja Vu has been reported to happen when your inner mind is shifting focus or going through a significant change. I never thought about that before, but like a year later made the connection.
The day I got the e-mail that I had won the stubhub contest I was at home on my lunch break from work. When I got back work, I started to choke up when I told my boss. We had to go outside so the customers didn't think I was crazy and he calmed me down. It was like a "I'm so excited" cry, I couldn't stop rambling and just blurting out every thought and feeling that came to my head. It took about five minutes of just telling him for me to get back in there and try to work lol.

Do you remember why I call you by the non-shortened version of your name? How many pairs of shoes do you own? How many of them are in active rotation in your wardrobe? How many pillows are on your bed? Do you sleep with socks on or off? Do you get up early on your days off or sleep in? Which of these 3 traits is most important in your ideal mate: kind heart, sense of humor, intelligence? Favorite non-alcoholic beverage? Do you drink enough water? When's the last time you went down a slide? Favorite meal of the day? How many times a week do you eat out at restaurants? Do you bring your lunch to work? If so, do you have a lunch box? Favorite kitchen gadget? Do you have a smart phone? If so, how attached to it are you? What's your personality type according to Myers-Briggs? What's your astrological sign? Do you buy-in to astrology?
I think you asking me favorite variety of tree? I, instead, would rather answer with my favorite specific tree: the big giant one that gives me shade in that one glorious spot on the farm where you can both hear/see the "This Tent" and are also able to turn around and people watch the fountain. I tried googling pictures of it, but I couldn't come up with anything.
How many pairs of shoes do you own? How many of them are in active rotation in your wardrobe?
A pair of sanuks for the weekends, black skate puffy tony hawk skater shoes (because they are comfortable as hell), and a pair of dress shoes. Those are the only ones I own at the moment. I tend to destroy shoes quicker than most, maybe I should start mixing up the pairs so they last longer?
It's funny because I used to sleep in ALL THE TIME. No matter what time I'd go to bed, I could sleep until noon. Then one day a couple years ago my work schedule changed to 4AM-noon shifts... and ever since then I havent been able to sleep past 8 o clock. I often wake up at 5/6am every day of the week.
Which of these 3 traits is most important in your ideal mate: kind heart, sense of humor, intelligence?
That's tough, I want to pick all three! I would have to say intelligence.
Only because lately my stupidity tolerance has been very low. I want someone I could converse with that would be able to provide intellectually stimulating conversation, as well as good common sense guidance. Kindness and laughter would come naturally with an intelligent person, because they would be smart enough to realize the importance of them.
Wow. Ummmmmm, I really can't remember. Haven't been to a park or playground in ages. It was probably around three years ago my nephews were in town and I think I remember us walking over to the school to play.
Do you have a smart phone? If so, how attached to it are you?
I do own an iPhone, and I wouldn't use the word attached. With most people it has gotten to the point where they are ENSLAVED by their smartphones. I often switch to Airplane mode at concerts or turn it off completely when I'm doing something.
Also, I have to comment on what it has done to our society. People expect things faster because you have a phone. Suddenly we are now "on call" at all hours of the day and it reflects poorly on someone if they don't answer all the time or don't text back.
I wish having a phone didn't come with so much social responsibilty. Sometimes I want to be left alone lol.
