Barefoot Interview (pg. 2)

Sindy: What did you most enjoy about your time in London and Sweden?
Matt Fellenbaum: Just going over seas. I'm glad I wasn't a solo artist by myself cuz that would have really sucked. Just the fact that I'm with my four best friends, traveling around, going to Europe to play music I think that was the coolest thing about going over there. The fact that we are actually getting the chance to record an album and work with these amazing writers and producers, that have worked with some of the bands that I grew up listening to and just love, is so cool.

Sindy: Did you guys get any sightseeing in?
Matt Fellenbaum: A couple of the guys did. Chris Pearson and Clay - we were in Stolkhom for three months and we had two weeks off - they took a trip to Paris.

Sindy: What has been your favorite place that you've traveled to?
Matt Fellenbaum: I like Portland a lot. Portland was a really, really cool city.

Sindy: Where in the world would you like to travel to that you haven't been?
Matt Fellenbaum: Hmmm... Hawaii sounds nice! Hawaii or Egypt. I know that sounds kind of weird, but I would love to go see the pyramids. That would be awesome.

Sindy: What do you like better - recording or touring?
Matt Fellenbaum: I like touring better because we are able to play live shows as a band and meet the fans and stuff like that. And just be out every night. When you're recording your just in the studio all the time and it gets very monotonous after a while.

Sindy Do you ever get homesick while you're on tour?
Matt Fellenbaum: Yeah, I definitely do get homesick. I love hanging out with my dad, so it's kind of a bummer when you're on the road for three months or however long and you don't get to see your family.

Sindy: Do you have any cures for homesickness?
Matt Fellenbaum: Uhhh, cell phone. Cell phone and iChat. They are definitely cures for homesickness.

Sindy: So you've had the opportunity to work with Joe Simpson. Have you been able to meet Jessica and Ashlee?
Matt Fellenbaum: Yeah, we've met them both a number of times just being around Joe's house. And we actually opened for Ashlee once last year. So yeah, we've got to know them better the longer that we've been with Joe. It's really cool getting to know them cuz they're really, really good people.

Sindy: Do you have any celebrity crushes?
Matt Fellenbaum: I think I have the same crush that every guy has, which is Jessica Alba. She's very, very pretty. Other than that, Rosario Dawson is pretty cute. I think I have a few celebrity crushes... I could probably go on for a while. Yeah, Christina Milian, that's the last one.

Sindy: Do any of you have a girlfriend?
Matt Fellenbaum: Two of them do. Chris Munselle and Jason Dering. They are very, very lovely girls.

Sindy: What do you look for in a girl?
Matt Fellenbaum: I personally look for, just a good sense of humor and just a great attitude. Someone who's really loving towards family and friends and no ego - just really easy to get along with.

Sindy: What would you describe as the perfect first date?
Matt Fellenbaum: Probably just connecting with the person really well. I'm not big on where we go or what we do, it's more about getting to know the person and trying to connect with whoever I'm with. I know that sounds kind of cheesy but...

Sindy: What do you like to do when you have some time off?
Matt Fellenbaum: When I have time off - I just bought a dirt bike - so I am on that thing whenever we're home, I am riding my dirt bike.

Sindy: Cool! So, one last question - What advice would you give for kids wanting to get into the music industry?
Matt Fellenbaum: Don't change for nobody. And I don't mean be stubborn, I mean like don't fall into the newest trend or whatever. Just be who you are and play the music you like to play. And have fun with it. Just have as much fun as you can because it's totally not worth getting caught up in all the stuff that comes along with it.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
