Bitter Pill, on Horse.

6. First song of theirs you ever heard (besides Runaway Train if that was your first).

I have a small teddy bear that I quietly named Murphy.

Depends on where I am, but I'd say Liz, Phil, Tim, Judith.

17. Have you ever bought/worn certain types of clothes because any of the guys have worn them?
No, but I started eating Spaghettios more because of Dave's t-shirt at the 1993 VMAs and I started drinking Mountain Dew because Dan mentioned it in an interview. (I kept drinking Mountain Dew for the caffeine.)

18. Favorite SA music video.
Can't Even Tell

Apparently if you tell someone "quick think of a vegetable" 98% of people think of a carrot. Guess it doesn't actually work that well :P Regardless, I lol'd at J.P.'s answer.

8. A line/lyric (or whole song) of theirs that makes you go "wtf is Dave talking about?"

Miracle mile. Love the song even though I only know ½ the words.

Lucky to live in the TC’S (insert your own joke here); haven’t had to travel much.
Clear Lake, IA (summer 2009?)

10. Favorite SA-related memory.

20 years and 60+ shows; lots of memories. Tough to narrow it to one.

11. Girls only- cutest guy in the band. (Karl and ex-drummers, alternate bassists count)

12. Your three favorite bands you learned about because of SA.

To many mpls band from say 85-95. What a great time for local music in the TC’S. TC bands were pretty much all I listened during this time.

13. One song you'd love to hear SA cover.

No covers!! I’m anti cover songs.

But; to play along… Willpower (top 5) by the Replacements just to see if Dan and/ or Dave could handle the guitar/ guitar solo. :shock: Of the top of my head; Bob Stinson’s best solo.

No.

18. Favorite SA music video.
