Collin's Band Member Profile

We are in the process of putting together Band Member Profiles. You get to see mine first.

Full Name
Collin Russell Palkovitz
Date of Birth
March 10, 1982
Birth Place
Sterling, Kansas
Current Location
West Grove, Pennsylvania

Occupation
Web-Design, Print-Design, Film, Photography, Music.
Hobbies
Backpacking, Rock Climbing, Mountain Climbing, Hiking, Canoeing, and eating delicious food.

English, and enough Spanish to embarrass myself.

Favourites...


 - Bands
Boy Sets Fire, Thursday, Thrice, Muse, Hum, Rage Against The Machine, the Appleseed Cast, Dear Ephesus, the Counting Crows, Beck, Ben Harper, Blindside, the Cure, the Postal Service, Sunny Day Real Estate, the Fire Theft, Elliott Smith, the Frames, Coldplay, Dashboard Confessional, REM, Smashing Pumpkins, Joni Mitchell, Modest Mouse, Live, James, Jay-Z, Jimmy Eat World, AFI, U2, Nirvana, Tori Amos, Cursive, James Taylor, Story of the Year, Ben Folds, Mewithoutyou, Moments in Grace, Robert Earl Keen, Simon and Garfunkel, (this list is not exhaustive and in no particular order)

 - Song
Impossible to pick one. “You are the Everything” by REM somewhere near the top of the list.

 - Form of Relaxation
I don’t really feel the need to relax very often. I am just about always doing something active. I know that a lot of people watch TV to relax but I have no TV (well, I have one, but it is not hooked up to anything besides the DVD player). I think, besides the Amish People, my wife and I are the only people in America who don’t watch any TV at all.

 - Food
I love food. I am probably the least picky guy I know. I like everything except brussell sprouts. Basically I like everything Jase does AND everything he hates. I spend a lot of time at his house and I consider it my God-given role to eat all of the leftovers in the fridge.

 - Drink
Water. I love water.

 - Film
Fight Club, Garden State, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Donnie Darko, A River Runs Through It.

 - Look Machine Band Member
Isaiah – No contest. Sorry, the rest of you guys just don’t stack up. Please come back Isaiah.
 

Likes
Laughing, traveling, driving, good food, nature, riding motorcycles, the smell of the air right before a rain storm, cliff jumping and other exhilarating situations, pipe smoke, fires, plane rides, peace, the smell of new things, guitars, amps, drums, stages, dimly lit clubs, old trees, rocks, rock climbing, rock music, outdoor cafes, old stone buildings, rapidly moving water, dreams, old books, libraries, learning, pottery, poetry, paintings, apple computers, well designed websites, music in scales that my ears do not recognize, dangerous animals, holidays, the satisfaction of a job well done, paychecks, my friends, my family, and my wife.

Dislikes
Injustice. Nothing infuriates me and frustrates me more than discrimination, unfair treatment, or judgment based on culture, skin color, religion, sex, or any other silly man-made distinction. An example would be the invasion, occupation, mistreatment, and slaughter that now take place on a daily basis in the under the guise of “liberation,” “freedom,” “Democracy,” or even “God.” The God I know said to love your enemies.
 

Religion
Christian. It is sometimes hard for me to say that, not because I am embarrassed of my faith or my God, but rather because many people have tainted the word “Christian.” Far too often Christians cast harsh judgments and throw out hateful condemnation everywhere they go. They preach loudly about God’s anger and judgment in an effort to frighten people into conversion. Sometimes leaders invade a country and slaughter its people “in the name of God.” I do not serve that god. The God I worship loves people from Iraq, gay people, black people, poor people, rich people, Jewish people, drug addicts, priests, pastors, and prostitutes all the same way – enough to die for them. I hope that I can reflect that kind of love and acceptance in my own life.

Poncho, my other band I was in, "Maybe Silas," played a big show with Appleseed Cast and Dear Ephesus in kingston NY a few years ago. I love both of those bands so I was REALLY excited to play there. It was cool.
