“Panda Watch! The mood is tense. I have been on some serious, serious reports but nothing quite like this. I, uh, Ching King is inside right now. I tried to get an interview with him, but they said “No, you can’t do that, he’s a live bear, he will literally rip your face off” – Brian Fantana

 

What music do you binge listen to?

I have been non-stop listening to singer/songwriter Noah Gundersen. Seriously he doesn’t write a bad song.

What was your last Instagram post?

My last Instagram post was a picture of Chattanooga, TN from when I lived near Nashville for a semester of college. I was part of a semester long music business program at The Contemporary Music Center & loved every second of it. The hills of Chattanooga are absolutely entrancing.

What local groups do you have interest in & would like to be a part of?

The Minnesota Unwanted Siberian Husky Rescue (MUSHR) is an organization that I would like to volunteer for. I absolutely love dogs & would be more than happy giving my time to help their cause!

If you could drink only one thing the rest of your life what would it be?

This has to be a trick question. . . if life had no consequences I would be drinking Bauhaus Brew Lab’s Sky Five or a Bulleit Bourbon & Ginger.

What is your favorite local restaurant?

My favorite local restaurant would have to be Sweet Pea’s Pub off of Snelling & Randolph. Their tator tots are filled with serrano peppers, bacon, & cheddar cheese. . . & will put you in an immediate food coma. Totally worth it.

What was your last Instagram post?

I had my friend wearing a swimsuit & a replica of Darth Vader’s mask (voice modulator included) relaxing in a hammock that I had strung across a river at Willow River State Park. We gathered quite a crowd.

Who inspires you?

Winsor McCay, Ub Iwerks, Frank Herbert, Hogarth Burne, Bill Watterson, & James Bond.

What is your guilty pleasure TV/Song/Movie?

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers & any martial arts film that has the Monkey King.

If you could drink one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

Lemonade on ice. No umbrella. No Straw. With a side of creamsicle sunsets.

Name something you’re proud of?

I worked on a promotional campaign designed to raise awareness about juvenile diabetes called the Thunder Ride that was sponsored by Harley Davidson. I remember hauling lights, taping down cords, & doing funny dances to get the talent to smile. Also, driving down the highway & seeing something you developed on the screen of a laptop wave back at you from a billboard is an awesome feeling.
