Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear directly from the main character? Here’s your chance! Arlo Jones, rocker from MV Ellis’s COLD, HARD & HEARTLESS stopped by for a chat. Enjoy!
What is on your nightstand? Condoms. Coke. Keys.
What is in your refrigerator? Vodka.
If you are cleaning among your things, what is easy for you to throw out? What do you have difficulty parting with? Why? Nothing except my Dad’s old guitar. Everything else is just “stuff,” and stuff doesn’t mean shit to me.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I don’t see myself five minutes from now, let alone five years. But if I have to I’d say dead.
If you could choose, how would you want to die? Doing a tequila shot. Or fucking. Or doing a tequila shot while fucking.
If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name five things you would do in the time you had left. Smoke a blunt. Do a line. Down a shot. Fuck a hot chick. Write a song.
What three words best describe your personality? Mad. Bad. Dangerous.
What three words would others probably use to describe you? Asshole. Slut. Genius.
What is your greatest strength? Music.
What is your greatest weakness? Nothing about me is weak.
Do you like yourself? Do I need to?
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I wouldn’t change a thing. It is what it is. If you don’t like it, that’s on you.
Are you generally introverted or extroverted? Yeah.
What is your most treasured possession? My dad’s guitar. I don’t give a fuck about anything else.
What do you believe is good entertainment (music, movies, dance, art, etc.)? Music. Fucking. Coke. Booze. In that order.
Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? How do you get the money for it? Do you want to quit? Who writes these stupid fucking questions? Yes, I smoke, drink and use. And then some. Because I can. I earn the money through music, and at this point, I’m pretty much richer than God, so it’s all good. No, I’m about to quit any of it.
How do you spend a typical Saturday night? Gigging.
What makes you laugh? Gigging and being on the road with the guys. We’re funny as shit.

What makes you happy? See question 16.
What makes you sad? Lack of the things in question 16.
What makes you angry? See question 21. And my twin brother Luke. The asshole.
How do you deal with stress? I don’t. Either I lash out, or I get wasted, in one way or another.
How do you deal with pain (physical and emotional)? See question 23.
Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? My plan is that there is no plan, and then we die. Everything else is a lie.
What are your pet peeves? Pretty much anything Luke does.
Which living person do you most despise? Why? I would say Luke, but he’s not worth the energy.
Are you an optimist or pessimist? Realist.
What is your greatest extravagance? Vintage guitars.
What are your religious views? Religion is for the weak.
What are your political views? Politics is for the stupid.
