I am hap­pi­est when ... I walk off stage and have a beer with fam­ily and friends. You wouldn’t know it but ... I’m ter­ri­fied of pub­lic speak­ing. My most em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment ... when we played Triple J’s One Night Stand a few years back and it was our first time on TV live. My mind went blank in the first song and I for­got my lyrics. The last time I cried was ... ev­ery time I watch a movie on a long haul flight. The last book I read was ... A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hem­ing­way. My favourite films are ... I love the first three [Ja­son] Bourne films [The Bourne Iden­tity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ul­ti­ma­tum]. I re­ally want to ... go to Rus­sia. My guilty plea­sure is ... Vegemite on eggs. Not that guilty I guess. Life has taught me ... to be im­pa­tient. I’m about to ... learn some new songs for this al­bum tour we’re do­ing. My first job was ... mak­ing piz­zas. My most mem­o­rable (cur­rent job) work-re­lated mo­ment is … win­ning the Hottest 100. One of the best days of my life! What I en­joy most about my work is … play­ing live. Ev­ery show is dif­fer­ent. And so is ev­ery crowd. It never gets bor­ing.

See The Rubens play at the Goods Shed, Evans St, Ho­bart, on Fri­day De­cem­ber 7, at 8pm. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets cost $55.59. This is an 18+ event. www.therubens­mu­
