    Paramore was opening for No Doubt so it didn't skew as young as you'd otherwise expect. We got there early and left before No Doubt came on.

    If you were single, would you be able to be in a relationship with someone significantly younger than you? Not just have sex with the person...actually have a connection with them. (I read that some 51 year old actor married a 16 year old, and my first thought was that he will smother her with a pillow within a year.)

    What do you think of this cover? Try and not pay attention to the gimmicky look of the band.

    That cover reminded me of mid- to late-70s midwestern rock. Like if Styx (in their Equinox phase) covered it. Or this band.. one of my favorites when I was 16.



    i will admit to listening to that right now and really liking it.

    I don't see why not. Certainly not just anyone.


    but not 16 though. no. I like adults.

    edit: My friend John in NY is like 52 I think. He's fat (like, bigger than me, by a fair amount) but a really great guy. Divorced with daughters in their 20s. John is currently living with a 28 year old Ghanian model - a really great woman, I like her a lot. They seem genuinely happy together. True love, I think. so why not?

    What advice would you give to someone with two of their own so they could say the same thing in 10 years?

    Your kids should always feel safe at home. I don't mean buy guns in case of burglers. I mean, they should feel in their hearts that home is a safe place for them emotionally. When you get mad at them (and you have, and you will, of course) resolve it. Don't let it fester. Resolve it in a way that they feel heard. That they feel understood, that you've listened to them and get their view, even if you disagree with it. (that's not the same as caving to everything -- quite different). They should know that if they fuck up, there will be consequences, but those consequences do not include losing their parents' love.

    Also, lead by example. Live your life in a way that you would want them to emulate. If you want them to make good judgments, make good judgments yourself that they can see.

    a) Better to burn out, or to fade away?

    b) Make a convincing argument for both with relevant examples.

    Favorite drink? (have we done that yet?)



    When was the last time you surprised yourself, in a good way? What was it that you did?

    Neil Young was, what, 34? when he said it's better to burn out than to fade away. I bet his answer would be different now that he himself has faded. I bet he's glad to be alive and doing things he likes. I don't know him but I'm guessing.

    He said it was the story of Johnny Rotten, but John didn't burn out.. he just went on to other things. Pretty damned great things with PiL in fact. and what we saw at Coachella 2010 was a hell of a lot better than what we saw out of Sid, who burned out big time a long time ago.

    Tom, how do you choose how much to reveal and how much to keep private on the internet?

    Guinness. Good wine.


    Sometimes I'll cook something and serve it up and I surprise myself at how good it is. Cooking is a big hobby of mine, I love it, and I've been at it long enough to have learned a few things. Occasionally I'll make something and I'll be like, damn, I did that. (disclosure: more often, I will make something and think what I should have done differently). But when it all comes together it's like damn. I'm just making other people's recipes, so it's just execution, not creation. but still. damn. There's this Thomas Keller recipe for chicken pot pie. Simple comfort food, but Keller is quite exacting in his techniques, and I followed it to the letter and the first time was good, but the second time I made it I was like.. damn. I made this? damn.

    I was merely adding in my percentage and cut of any transactions ahead of time so there would be no hidden costs or embarrassing surprises at checkout time.

    And, now that we have that out of the way...I'll make my question simple for you and include a chart. Let's say that Pot was dead serious about you running off and fucking a tree the other day. He didn't clarify any particular type of tree, so I'll ask you what your taste in fucking trees happens to be?

    I'm much more comfortable talking about myself than about my family members or friends or colleagues or any of that. I intentionally try to remain vague and I certainly never talk about serious issues that others in my life may have a problem with. This only seems fair to other people.

    Also, certain things about myself I don't want to talk about other than in jokes or unspecific generalities. To people I have come to know and trust, I'll get more personal, up to a point.

    I guess my rule of thumb is, would this embarrass me or hurt someone if it came to light that I was talking about it with people on the internet?

    Pot is a friend and I took his comment in the spirit it was intended. Which was, not literally. Why do you need these things explained to you?

    Whoa, apparently, I have no thumbs! I never use them to type so I hadn't even noticed until Tom brought it to light.
