Fun Fact About TJ: Consumes his food whole, like a snake. Can assume the form of a Pegasus on command, hence his inclusion on this year's team.
TJ plays in a local klezmer band called Moisha and The Tater Tots. They've just recently signed to Thrill Jockey for a shit-ton of cash. According to TJ, if their debut album goes gold, he'll "Head-butt the first police officer I see into the freakin' stone age!" When he's not busy head-butting law officers, he's furiously spinning his beautifully toned legs at the local velodrome or creating lavishly decorated cardigan sweaters for a "reformed straight edge" support group. He was also forcibly removed from the Dischord Records office in 1997 for urinating on Ian MacKaye's tape dispenser. True story.
Voted Best Hair, 2007.
