> 1. what's your name? Jess
> 2. where do you live? Vermont, US

> 3. how old are you? 31
> 4. what do you do for a living? college student

> 5. what was the first song you heard by the Oils? US Forces
> 6. how old were you when you heard it? 13
> 7. what are your two favorite albums, from one extreme to the other?  Capricornia and Head Injuries
> 8. favorite energetic song?  No favorite

> 9. favorite slow song? In the Valley unplugged

> 10. what song(s) defines the Oils? Beds are Burning, alas.

> 11. what song is *least* characteristic of the Oils? dunno.
> 12. Martin or Jim?  Wide open question there.  As musicians it would be silly to separate them.  As people, I have no idea, I've never met Martin.  If it's a beauty contest, well, since I don't have a television and they aren't on any of their album covers I never really formed that opinion.  

> 13. what Oils song did you absolutely hate at first and now love? Absolute hate is undefined, as the instruments we have available are not sensitive enough to measure it.

> 14. did you buy any Oils releases totally on faith, without having heard a 
> single song before buying it? I bought the first one after reading a magazine article.  The rest were all bought on faith.

> 15. do you play any instruments? yes. Do I play well is another question altogether.

> 16. if you could go to any ONE place mentioned in an Oils song, where would
> you go? How about Australia?

> 17. have the Oils ever inspired you to take any direct action as part of any environmental/social activist cause? inspired, no. reinforced, yes.

> 18. have you ever had any Oils-related dreams? too many, and usually seriously weird.

> 19. Bones or Giffo? Only thing I know about giffo is that he runs a near-porn website and bikini shop.  I'd have to vote for the guy who doesn't make me think he hangs out at nude beaches wearing a snowsuit...

> 20. what forgotten song deserves another spin? Pictures
