Hillel: What’s the name of your band? Jared: Weird Dreams. Hillel: Where’d you get your t-shirt? Jared: I don’t know. It’s an old one.

Hillel: Where’d you get your sunglasses? Jared: A vintage store. Hillel: How long have you had the beard for? Jared: Maybe… 3 weeks? Hillel: It took you 3 weeks to grow that beard? It would take me like six months to grow that beard. Jared: Really? Hillel: Well, the problem is my moustache. I look like a suicide bomber when I grow a beard. Thick, curly beard, whispy moustache. People are afraid of me. Jared: Oh no. Hillel: You gonna shave that beard when it gets hot? Jared: It grows so fast, when it gets big, I just shave it and start over. Hillel: Is that a metaphor for your music at all? Jared: [thinks] Is my beard… like my music…. Well, it grows! Hahaha.
Hillel: What do you keep in your messenger bag? Jared: I have… [starts to pull stuff out] a copy of Kerouac’s Big Sur. And my poetry book. Where I write my songs, and drawings, and whatever. Hillel: Ok, let’s talk about music. Morrissey, Yea or Nay? Jared: Big-time Nay. Hillel: What about that one song that goes, do, do, do, do, do, do-do, do-do… Jared: I don’t know that one. Hillel: What mainstream band do you like, but you’re kind of embarrassed about? Jared: Well I LOVE Hall and Oates. Hillel: That’s pretty embarrassing. Which do you like better, Hall or Oates? Jared: Oates. He’s got the moustache.
