Bands with Cats – James Shipton andÂ Thor
– by Cheena Jean Normandin
Your bands and role:
I play guitar and lead vocals for the Expectants.
What’sÂ isÂ yourÂ cat’s name? Thor
What’s your cat’s origin story?
He’s either the runt from a litter of tabbies in Abbotsford orÂ he’s from Asgard.
What does ThorÂ usuallyÂ eat?
He likes turkey giblets, pumpkin seeds and ice-cream.
WhatÂ do you think Thor’s theme songÂ is?
Poison Idea’s “Hangover Heartattack”.
What is theÂ most impressive thing ThorÂ hasÂ murdered?
Thor couldn’t murder a fly. I did get him an Obama political plush toy at a WashingtonÂ Denny’s for a quarter. He enjoyed a lot of sexy time with Barack, but ended up just rippingÂ the fluff out of him. My guess is Thor was frustrated at Obama for being a starfish.
Â If ThorÂ sees a GIANT spider, what isÂ hisÂ course of action?
He would try to play with itÂ until it moved then he would run away.
Where is theÂ last inconvenient place that your cat has fallenÂ asleep?Â I don’t think he’s everÂ fallen asleep in a convenient place. Some of his favourite spots are the bath tub, Jaclyn’sÂ boobs, or my guitar case.
If Â ThorÂ threw a raging party, what are the staples on the playlist?
It would definitely start with:
The Alleycats, “Nothing Means Nothing Anymore”:
Straycats, “Stray Cat Strut”
and The Pogues, “Wild Cats of Kilkenny”:
If you wake up in a Freaky Friday situation with Thor,Â what’s the first course of actionÂ onÂ yourÂ behalf?
I’d find some boobs to nap on.
