Also ask me stupid shit:
The Dandy Warhols - Whipping Tree
Out of ALL of the Dandy Warhols catalog, this is my favorite song of theirs. For such a “fun” band, of course this would be my favorite track.
We’re doing a project where we ask people: what’s your UCB? We got to talk to Nicole Drespel about Bucky, teaching, and being obsessed right away.
EO: How’d you find UCB?
ND: I did college improv. Langan Kingsley mentioned the group—it was called Dead Serious at Wellesley College. One of the girls on that team, Kylie, was a super comedy nerd. She talked about UCB. There was one weekend where we went on a trip to New York and were going to UCB, but we got tickets to Saturday Night Live instead. We slept on a sidewalk.
So I didn’t actually go to UCB until a year later on spring break, my senior year of college. My wild spring break was coming home to my parents’ place with a friend of mine, going to ASSSSCAT, and then going to the Bronx Zoo. That was how I spent senior year spring break.
Nicole is the absolute best!
Though I’m really surprised she hasn’t discovered I’m a complete monster.
