Saturday 9: I Will Never Let You Down

Saturday 9: I Will Never Let You Down (2017)
... because Smellyann recommended Fastball [woohoo, I'm famous!]

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) Fastball is a trio from Austin, Texas. Austin is the capital of Texas. When you were in school, did you have to memorize the state capitals?
I surely did, and it's funny because now that I homeschool my kids, I struggle to remember them sometimes myself! Whoops.

2) Have you ever visited your state's capital?
We live in Boise, the capital of Idaho. So... yes! And we have been to the capitol building, but we need to go again because my son Jack was too sick to go the first time I ventured out there with me girlies.
3) Fastball played dates throughout Canada this past spring. When did you last leave the US of A?
In November 2014, when we went to Mexico for a Happify convention.

4) Tony Scalzo is a founding member of Fastball. He's the singer in the video for this song, and that's his wife, Jennifer, playing the organizer of the speed-dating event. Have you ever gotten a job because you knew somebody?
5) In this pitch to a perspective lover, he admits he doesn't have much money. Last time you went to the ATM, how much did you withdraw?
Over a thousand dollars. Like $1200.

6) He sings that at times, his mind is hazy. Do you have a good memory for names?
I'm better with faces, much worse at remembering the names that go with them.

7) Fastball guitarist Miles Zuniga admits that he once had a crush on Carrie Fisher (aka Princess Leia). Tell us about one of your one-sided love affairs, either with a celebrity or someone you knew in real life.

Matt Damon --- look at him! Look! How could he not be my imaginary celebrity boyfriend?!

8) Fastball's drummer Joey Shuffield is partial to drums from Pork Pie Percussion. This company was started by Bill Detamore, who began making drums as a hobby. Do you have any hobbies that, under the right circumstances, could make you money?
Yes, I have made quite a bit of money from my knitting. I don't know why I don't do it as much anymore; I think I did it so much that I (and my fingers) burnt out on it

9) The fast ball is the most common pitch in major league baseball. Now that the MLB season is past the halfway mark, how is your baseball team doing?
I haven't even had a glance at the score sheet.
Yeah, my entry was kind of boring this week, sorry. It's 97 degrees in our house with the air conditioning on the fritz, so I think my creative writing mojo has joined it.
See y'all for Sunday Stealing!
