Any Other Questions with... Sløtface
This month, Haley from Sløtface runs the gauntlet of our random, stupid queries.

Hello. How are you?
I'm pretty good considering it's winter, but I'm freaking sick of the dark. Looking forward to the sun turning #NorwayProblems.

What have you been up to today?
Absolutely nothing. I've had the day off from my non-music related job as a bartender, and have watched romantic comedies on my computer and drank as many cups of tea as I like. Later I'm going to go see a great band called Misty Coast though.

When’s your birthday?
26th April. Feel free to send gifts.

What was the first record you bought?
'Dookie' by Green Day. Still great.

What’s your biggest accomplishment?
The past few summers I've been a counsellor at the girl's rock camp LOUD! in Norway which is probably my favourite project and the thing I'm most proud of being a part of. Seeing those girls build confidence and make music and friends is something truly special.

Which defunct band would you most like to reform?
No Doubt or Rilo Kiley.

What’s your favourite smell?
Cinnamon buns baking in the oven.

What was the last thing you broke?
Probably a pair of ear-buds. I always buy the cheap ones that give me a slight electric shock when I wear them outside, and I'm constantly losing or breaking them.

Who is your favourite member of One Direction?
Gotta go with Harry. It's the hair and the love of classic rock and roll. I even quite like a few songs on his solo record.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever done?
When I was a kid, we used to sell raffle tickets door to door for the Norwegian National Holiday and for sports teams and stuff, which I absolutely hated and would dread for the whole year. Being a kid and knocking on strangers doors with scary dogs and angry old people. Never again.

What’s your favourite pizza topping?
Blue cheese and buffalo sauce.

Have you ever seen a ghost?
No, but I have terrible eyesight, so I often wake up in the middle of the night and think there are creepy, tall figures in my room before I find my glasses and see they are usually just clothes.

What’s your earliest memory?
Running around outside my family's first house after we moved to Norway, playing in the trees and the forest, picking fruit.

What’s your most treasured possession?
My signed copy of Patti Smith's 'Just Kids'.

If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?
Large-scale human selflessness?

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
Went spelunking in a really tight and tiny cave once. Scared the shit out of me. No thank you, caves.

If you won the lottery, what would you spend the cash on?
A small cabin somewhere in the woods I could live in when we're not on tour. That's the dream.

What do you do for fun?
Go to gigs, read books, watch movies, hike.

What’s your favourite joke?
Anything written for Broad City or by Larry David.

How punk are you out of ten?
Like a 7. I do sing in a somewhat punk band, but I am also an old crazy lady.

What is the best present you’ve ever been given?
My parents have always given awesome gifts. The year I moved out they gave me a stereo for Christmas. It's perhaps my second favourite possession.

Taken from the April issue of Dork, out now.
