10 questions for Snook, St. John’s first son and last line of defense against taking life too seriously.

What are your current obsessions?
It’s all about the runnin’ lately, really.  I took it up to kick the smokin’, and if I stop poundin’ the pods on the pavement, I’n terrified I’ll be back on the butts.  Knowin how to run comes in handy when you hang around with Dougie, too.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?
I find a crisp, clear sunrise on Signal Hill will spark up your heart as good as anything.  So will a long snort of Javex.

What turns you off?
VLTs and knobs going around alla time with earphones plugged in their heads.  Don’t get me started on them stunned clip-on-your ear telephones.

What is your favorite curse word?
“Jumpin’ jammin!”

What sound or noise do you love?
Big crowd havin’ a gut-bustin’, chair-ruinin’ laugh, I s’pose.

What sound or noise do you hate?

“For service in English, press 1…”

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Body-painting.  Or Premier.  Or both.

What profession would you not like to do?
Back-up System Maintenance for Aliant –  impossible job, apparently.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
“Come on over and plunk down ‘er right here, my son.  I hope you’re hungry.”

Do you floss?
Yes indeed I do.  I got those little plastic hack-saw kinda floss jobs. Like Dougie always says, “Nothin’ worse than No Teet.”

Snook’s new CD Snook’s Childhood (or Snook Ruins a Bunch of Kids’ Songs) will be officially launched on Sunday Nov. 5th at 2pm in the Avalon Mall, next to the GAP.
