Sometimes when I am on a run around the neighborhood, I conduct dialogues in my head. Here I’d like to share one such conversation, in which I interviewed my rock star self.
Q: How would you describe your music?
A: Impossible to answer. Unprecedented.
Q: What is your role in the band?
A: I have been ceremoniously crowned “diva” ever since I needed to purchase a second second-tier keyboard stand. I try to live up to the label, mostly by arriving to practice with large sunglasses, an up-do and a smoothie (lacking small, yippy dog, though I may borrow Lindsey’s chihuahua at times). Very Hollywood.
Q: What quote do you live by?
A: “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss.” – Beyonce Knowles
Q: What have been your biggest challenges?
A: Having boobs and vaginas. Oh wait! That’s not a thing anymore. Then I’d say Candace breaking a finger every 6 months — waiting for her finger to heal is a drag.
Q: What does Skadi mean?
A: Research your Norse mythology and get back to me.
Q: What are Skadi’s goals?
A: To shred.
Q: Why an all-female band?
A: I’m sorry, do you ever ask a band “why an all-male band?” Didn’t think so.
Q: What venues do you like to play?
A: Are you hitting on me?
