    Who the fuck is BrettShipes? Who cares? The whole advantage to the format of this thread is that in theory boring dickheads couldn't end up in the interrogation seat.

    Ivy, you shouldn't have caved in to Foi's horseshit.

    Yeah, who the fuck is BrettShipes? I guess this our chance to findout.

    He's a Jane's fan though, so he can't be all that bad.

    did you tell one of the penguins you loved them as they were getting frozen, only for them to reply "i know"? is that why they got away?

    if you were a celebrity to be arrested for a sensational crime, what would the crime be and how would you get caught?

    Brett, why do you think you were chosen this week?

    How old are you and what do you do for a living?

    Also, you don't have to be clever. Honestly works best in this format. Interesting is obviously encouraged but don't force any of it. Try to answer your questions with examples, stories and good descriptions. Use your imagination a bit more for the hypotheticals.

    BrettShipes,
    A movie is being made about your life. Who plays your role (based on physical similarities or actor's ability to portray you). What's the movie called and what songs are on the soundtrack?

    Do you still have that bolt that almost fell on your head at Coachella? I think you said you were in the Mojave Tent.

    I am indeed. The first time (of many) I saw Jane's was when my mother took me on the way to Coachella '01 at the SB Bowl (she had seen them many times before including '91 Lolla and '97 Relapse tour). That Coachella was my first real smack in the face of Chemical Bros, the rest is history.
    I am a full time student studying Music, but no, I'm actually a dedicated music student. I spend most of my days in the music building practicing and geeking out on Mahler. I play Basses, electric and upright, mostly Jazz and I've been playing for 5 years but unlike most "musicians" or "bassists" I know how to play my instrument thank you. (no offense to "musicians" but lessons and practicing actually does work)

    In the midst of becoming the resident go-to bassist at school, I discovered the joys of the recording arts and that I very VERY much enjoy the techy geeky side of things and the wonderful joys of microphones. I can use Pro-Tools, Sonar, Cubase, Acid, Reason, Ableton, Fruity Loops, etc. etc. I have my own home studio I've constructed piece by piece to help out with my projects when I'm not at school and to have lots and lots of fun with. Here's a pic! (It's not that neat and tidy anymore)

    Oh, BS, I think I still have afew stupid mistakes up my sleeve! LOL And give me about 15 minutes in your studio and I'll show you adventerous! I may not know what the hell I'm doing, but there's No Fear here!

    Considering their surroundings, I'd say they're "Happy Feet" penguins that start dancing when BS starts playing.

    Or, join the band? Speaking of which, other than at school, have you been in a band and performed on stage? Is that your dream for the future? And, if so, what would you call your band? Lastly,(ahem) how much does a resident bassist charge for lessons to a wanna-be rockstar?

    BS.

    Chick Corea-Acostic or Electric?

    What would you do if David Gilmour heard you play and gave you the advice of pursuing another career?

    Choose one: Kitt Katt, Three Musketeers, Milky Way

    Brett,
    I agree. Jaco was tremendous. Are you a fan of Pattituci? got to meet him years ago. A very down to earth guy. What do you think of James Jamerson?

    Brett, as a musician and, namely, a bassist do you ever think there's like two levels of bass knowledge? As a fellow bassist (and subscriber to Bass Player magazine) I've always had the impression that there's really two kinds of bass players in the world: the dudes that are way into Jaco and Victor Wooten and everybody else. Do you think the world of bass players is divided like so? Also, when collaborating with other people, do you prefer to keep it simple, or do you just not give a fuck and launch into solos? I know it's an over simplification, but it'll help me with my own dilemma. Thanks.

    That's a great CD. It has a scary outer space theme to it. I met Chick once at the Ambassador in Pasadena. He's short.

    Edit.
    I saw Pattituci play at UCLA a few years back. My hands hurt watching him play.

    I like your style, Brett.

    Who do you think is the most talented bassist in modern rock music? (that means no jazz or jam bass prodigies or legends) I think it's Chris Wolstenholme of Muse (those bass lines AND singing back-up falsetto to that voice? incredible).

    If you had to be trapped in a tv show for the rest of your life, which show would it be? Also, is there a better punk bass player than Matt Freeman?

    A307 Machine Bolt. Pretty likely it's galvanized because it will be exposed to the elements.

    What was the reason for galvanized chain mail over stainless?
