Spend 69 seconds with musician and producer/director of the web series Lez Renovate, Laura Lee (LL) Schultz.
01Your first job.
My first job with a pay cheque was a cashier at a dry cleaner. It was great because I would start after school and work til 8pm. And most of the time it was really slow in the evening which gave me time to play my guitar in the back. Plus, my friends would come visit and we would eat hot dogs and Orange Julius’. Probably the best job I ever had.
02The job you wanted as a child.
Rock Star. Still working on that.
04Your biggest indulgence.
Right now? Chips. And I think it may be Morgan Brayton’s fault. The song we wrote, Chips, for her show Raccoonery! is just so damn catchy and addictive!
05Your biggest pet peeve.
People who drive while on the phone. Drives me mad!!
06The three things you would want with you on a deserted island.
My guitar, my girlfriend and chips.
07Complete this sentence: I first kissed a girl…
On a dock at Trout Lake during the summer in the middle of the night.
08The one word your best friend would use to describe you.
09 Something no one knows about you (and you are willing to share).
I once had a poster of Terence Trent D’arby on my wall. I bet you can’t listen to “Dance Little Sister” without dancing.
10 The one thing you any visitor to Vancouver simply cannot miss.
Kissing on a dock at Trout Lake during the summer in the middle of the night.
