From: Hunington Beach, CA
Duddy: My Favorite snack… Mini-Pies. I make these at home. They’re literally like thick apple pie, but really small. But it still looks exactly like an apple pie. I call them “Pieders.” Pie Sliders.
“Pieders, Where Every Day Is Your Cheap Day”
Duddy: I have bought the website and patented it [“Pieders”]. The world will know the joy of holding a pie in your hand and eating it without any silverware.
Old Rap Tapes
Duddy: It is literally like ten dudes in a garage, my dad built a soundproof room in our garage. …We would go there after parties… I had this little four-track, mini-disc recorder and a cashio keyboard. We would make the dumbest beats and everyone would have rap on the song.
Utah Reggae-Rock scene
Duddy: You[Salt Lake City], are more of a mountain town. And this more like beach music… Utah, especially, has an amazing scene for out type of music.
escpeccially, has an amazing scene for out type of music.
Charles Fleischer, actor, comedian, and voice artist talks with Richie T about his upcoming appearance at Salt Lake Comic Con's FanXperience.
Charles is best known for his work as the voice of Roger Rabbit in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, as well as roles in Back To The Future, The Polar Express, Rango, and We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story.
After the success of 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit', Charles Fleischer continued to perform the voice of Roger in several Disney television and theme park appearances, and in three follow-up short subjects to the original film. Charles Fleischer had a recurring role on the 1970's TV series "Welcome Back, Kotter" playing Carvelli, as well as Chuck on the ABC series "Laverne & Shirley", and on the Disney cartoon "House of Mouse" as the voice of Benny The Cab. He was also a regular on the short-lived comedy/varitey show "Keep on Truckin'". He guest starred in The Weird Al Show, as well as a guest appearance on the short lived Saturday morning show Wacko.
Fleischer is now the part-owner of a multi-media company in Southern California and a writer for television and movies. He also still does stand-up gigs occasionally.

A lot of people struggle with the pronunciation think that it's "chu-vur-ches" which is hilarious to me and baffling at the same time.
Previous band names:
The Runner Up choice was Shark Week.
"The Mother We Share" as their first single
We just wanted to go with what we felt was our strongest song or our most immediate song perhaps. Or even the song that best represents the sound of our band for the first time.
"Under The Tide"
I like that song a lot! It's an unusual choice. It doesn't have Lauren on lead vocals...Lauren writes most of the lyrics in the band so I never ask her what the songs are about. I have a feeling that it's a really sad story behind that song, but what it's actually about I have no idea.
Switching between lead vocalists
In terms of Martin being on lead vocals for that song, we never really plan out thinking, "Ok this is gonna be Martin's song, this is gonna be Lauren's song". We tend to kind of have both of them sing - whichever one feels right for the song - and that'll be the one that we end up going with. The song "We Sink" which is the second track on our album - that was going to be Martin on lead vocal right up until the last minute and then we decided to go with the Lauren version. I think it's good that we have two really good singers in the band as well because we get to vary things up a bit.

My wife did get me a my little pony tee-shirt that I humbled myself and wore to Disney Land.
How is the Quintet different from 311?
It is a different thing. It's more vintage sounding. It's not heavy. Probably come out in a blazer. It's more of a kind of an upscale kind of deal. Definitely wanna encourage people to dance and come ready to party, but it's not a moshing kind of situation. It's a lot of improvisation, funky styles, solos, and we're gonna do some covers. We actually do this thing called the Dice Jam where we roll dice to pick tempos and keys and scales and then just go. So it's much more unscripted than anything I've ever been apart of.
Next up for 311
We just tweeted an announcement over the pre-order...There's 15 songs to the new record. It's coming out on March 11 - 3/11 day - and we're holding our big concert in New Orleans on that day.
