29. Brian Kent pop quiz
The Number 29 spot is taken by one of the original Year 1 pop quiz interviews.  Brian Kent’s pop quiz posted on January 9, 2009 and not only kicked off the month, but the new year.  The second pop quiz for January 2009 featured none other than Tim’m West from H-Town on January 23, 2009.

I actually did quite a few things with Brian Kent in Year 1 including a popolio podcast interview and I also posted his video for “Whatcha Doin’ To Me.”

Interesting to point out that in Year 1 what prompted the video selection with question Number 8 was the artist’s choice of their favorite old school joint.  This question slightly changed as the years went on.

See the original post here — Brian Kent pop quiz.  It includes his song, “Whatcha Doin’ To Me,” and a performance video of “Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going To Be A Long, Long Time)” by Elton John.

This, That, or the Other
1. Underground OR Mainstream? Underground. It’s where mainstream gets its inspiration from.

2. Maintain Artistic Integrity and Vision OR Make a lot of Money? (OR Both)??? Both would be nice, but if I had to choose…I’d rather be a starving artist than a miserable, suicidal, manufactured, hit-making machine.

3. Studio OR Stage? Both. I want to have my cake and eat it too.

4. Spirituality OR Hedonism? Spirituality.  It can be hedonistic.

5. Make Love, Have Sex, OR %$*!? All of the above.

Fill in the Blank
6. Music is my salvation.
7. I’m musically inspired by people, places, events, dreams, and shiny objects.
8. If I could have made any music video it would have been “Her Morning Elegance” by Oren Lavie.                                              
9. If I was a super hero I’d be Vampirella.                                                       
10. Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll should change to Sex, Wine, and Indie Music.  

Short Answer
11. I make music because:  It’s how I express the things I can’t express in a normal conversation.  It gives me a voice to say what others can’t say or don’t dare to say and it allows me to connect and bond with others no matter how different we may be.

12. I want my fans to:  Escape reality with my music, be inspired to embrace their individuality, and make positive choices in their lives.

13. If I could only share one thing about myself it would be:  I have slight OCD.

14. Wild Card!  Please kill the auto-tuner.

15. I want my musical legacy to be:  To be remembered as an innovative, fearless, outspoken female who inspired others to progress, evolve, and shift their consciousness.

The music video Janid wishes she would have made!
