Anyway in the aftermath of quirkyguy18's awesome interview I collected some of the questions that were cut so you can get to know the slightly less interesting side of us.
Whose bright idea was Accidental Pollinator?
Alex: Hmm…I think it was sort of a collective idea. For the most part it was a joke, then we started actually doing it.
Boss: Everyone but me, I think.
What is the science behind the name?
Cindy: An accidental pollinator is a creature that, while going about its business, happens to pollinate. A bee doesn’t set out saying “I think I’m going to help these flowers procreate!” no, he’s just interested in getting food, the pollination is an accident.
Alex: Freezepop, The Smashing Pumpkins, Depeche Mode, ThouShaltNot, and The Postal Service.
Boss: Rush, Pink Floyd, Freezepop, ThouShaltNot, Kurt Harland, Symbion Project…
Cindy: Freezepop, ThouShaltNot, Lifestyle, Cosmicity, Spice Girls, Common Rotation, and Dir en Grey.
Alex: Sigourney Weaver!
Boss: The Boss.
What did you just eat?
Alex: Kix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Boss: Macados Club.
Cindy: Taco Bell.
Red or Blue?
Cindy: Red. Red all the way.
What is the difference between an unhappy capitalist and an ecstatic communist?
Boss: Attitude. And political affiliation. And their name. And probably everything else.
Cindy: The unhappy capitalist is being abused by the system, an ecstatic communist is abusing the system.
Is it true that you’re going to have a ghetto white little girl dance in all your videos?
Alex: Our lawyer has advised us that pending out trial in domestic court we shouldn’t speak about it.
How would you respond to people who say that synthpop isn’t music?
Alex: My general consensus is that music is more simple then most people think. People just don’t realize it with rock and roll or R&B. Synth-pop is just as much real music as anything else, just on different instruments. Not everything has to be a concerto to be real music.
Cindy: I bet you listen to rap and bad techno.
How would you respond to people who say that you don’t exist?
If Purusha is the originally sacrificed cosmic being that gave life to everything, why isn’t he the big shit? What did Brahman, Vishnu and Shiva do to become all high and mighty?
Alex: They’re names are a lot cooler. Also, it’s all technically conceptual to help us understand God better.
Boss: Their names are easier to pronounce.
Cindy: They’re Hindu.
Is it safe to say that Accidental Pollinator is just a bunch of modern day heathens?
Cindy: Religion is pointless when you realize that machines will soon rule us all.
Would you count this as a waste of time?
Boss: Not a big waste.
Cindy: It was this or World of Warcraft.
Favorite curse word?
Boss: God dammit.
Alex: The little Konami sound at the start of MGS1.
Boss: Kain’s laugh in Defiance when he impales someone.
Alex: The smell of spring.
What job would you not want to do?

What was the last song you listened to?
Alexx: Blank Page – The Smashing Pumpkins.
Boss: Thou Shalt Not – Embrace the Sun.
Cindy: Dr Awesome – Bioform.
Best lyric you ever heard?
Alex: Take a day, plant some trees. May they shade you from me. May your children play beneath.
Boss: Fucking alarm clock/Start the day in fear.
Cindy: Good writers borrow and great writers steal.
Worst lyric you ever heard?

Boss: I’ll find out when I die. Unless I don’t.
Is there a fundamental question?
Cindy: There has to be, we know the answer.
Full-bodied women or skinny waifs?
Alex: Depends. I’m not that into curves, in either. So I guess waif.
Cindy: I’d rather someone who’s healthy, which usually means the former.
Should men be required to wear buttons that say how well they are endowed?
Alex: I don’t think it would be a bad idea.
Boss: Yeah, why not.
Cindy: Only at bars.
Did we really land on the moon?
If you’ve just met someone and you tell them that you lead a dull and meaningless existence, and then they tell you they don’t think you do, what does that mean?

Do you trust other people?
Alex: Not usually.
Boss: Generally not.
When a movie flops, is it the actors’ fault, the director’s fault, or the writer’s fault?
Cindy: Depends on which sucked.
Whose fault is it when things go badly for Accidental Pollinator?
Alex: I’m assuming I’ll be blamed, but I doubt it will ever be my fault.
Boss: I would say Alex, but he’s out of the band.
What do you think is the statement your music makes?
Boss: We’re nerds, but still better than everyone else.
Cindy: Science rules! Or that we’re crazy.
What is the statement your fashion makes?
Alex: I’m not happy to be around you right now.
Cindy: Someone like me should not own blue eyeliner.
What is statement do you regret making?
Cindy: Most every statement I’ve ever made.
Why are iPods evil?
Alex: Because they’re a stupid trend and every one has them just to look rich and cool. Also, I really don’t like digital music machine things. I like CDs.
Boss: Cause idiots like them. But that’s not iPod’s fault.
Cindy: Because I don’t have one.
What kind of underwear do you not wear?
What if you ran into a clone of yourself on the street?
Boss: I would probably quote Metal Gear Solid. No. I would quote Metal Gear Solid.
Who, in fact, is the killer?

Cindy: I haven’t figured it out yet.
Do you believe that there truly does exist a warrior elf princess who is totally gorgeous?
Alex: No. She is totally gorjuss x 3.
Is science for the masses? Or should it be hoarded by academia?

Is an obtuse thirty-two degree angle really inconceivable?
Boss: Depends on who you are and how you look at it.

Do you go in for casual hook-ups?
Cindy: Not anymore.
What childhood toy did you hate?
Boss: There was a robot that my Uncle got for me for Christmas that was really noisy and opened up and had a person’s face inside. It terrified me. I feel kina bad about it now.
Would you sell your daughter into slavery? It says it’s okay in the Bible.
Alex: Depends how much I could get for her.
Boss: She’s my property, I don’t need the Bible’s permission.

Alex: Yes and no.

Shouldn’t musical artists be able to write their music down?
Alex: I don’t see a point to go through the whole process. It just slows me down.
What other musician/musical group would Accidental Pollinator procreate with in order to have unholy, hell spawn?
Boss: We would try with Freezepop, but it wouldn’t be unholy. I would try with Kurt Harland, but it would fail.
