Q: Who was the guy you talked to on Enjoy Incubus, the one speaking in tongues?

Brandon: By our definition, he was the devil. He was. And I apologize to anyone on the chat who's a born-again Christian who has no teeth and he basically thought that because we didn't share his beliefs that WE were the devil and we would burn in hell very soon. So he started speaking in tongues to me to demonstrate his connection to God, and little did he know I am schooled in gibberish.

Dirk Lance: Ultimately, the only thing that matters is, is there integrity in your music? Are you really proud of what you do? The fact that you have bitchin' abs is completely irrelevant.
