    PeterLet your eyes travel back in time to read a 2006 IM-terview with Jamie Johnston, and check out some pics of Peter from back in the day.


    -Jamie-: hi
    The-Mary: hey! so ok: digging in: i just read your Alloy playlist, and it is awesome.
    -Jamie-: yeaaah heehe
    The-Mary: let's talk about the mars volta.
    -Jamie-: yes, lets!
    The-Mary: ok. so, people seem to have really firm reactions to them, either love or hate. did you love them the first time you heard them? is that just "your noise"?
    -Jamie-: yeah, i was on a plane from france and my friend said she "had" to give me the cd so i listened to it while she was listening to my mp3s, and right away it reminded me of these nightmares i used to have, but once i got over that, it was really cool. all their songs go perfectly into the next song. like when i'm listening to an album and it's on shuffle, at the end of the song i sing the lyrics for the next song you know?
    The-Mary: totally. it's weird how some things just hit the right frequency in your head... the way people "recognize" something in a band when they first hear them. you play guitar, right?
    -Jamie-: yeah
    The-Mary: how long have you been playing?
    -Jamie-: i started when i was like 10 or something, but my teacher moved away so i haven't had a lesson in a few years.
    The-Mary: bah, lessons. who needs 'em. :) ok, so, degrassi
    The-Mary: does anyone ever give you grief about what peter did to manny?

    -Jamie-: this one girl at my school STILL does and it's been months. i think she just does it as a joke now, but i pretend to be offended anyways
    The-Mary: hahahaha. that girl just likes you. sayin'.
    -Jamie-: thanks lol
    The-Mary: what's your take on peter? is he a bad guy, misunderstood, just made a mistake? i always kinda liked that he really showed remorse for it..
    -Jamie-: it's fun playing a 'bad boy' - but peter isn't completely bad. there are too many sides of everyone to narrow a character down to just 'bad', 'good', or whatever...
    The-Mary: yeah, every character on there has made one huge embarrassing mistake or another, they're all human...
    The-Mary: have you ever let a girl come between you and a friend?

    -Jamie-: no, it almost happened once, but i thought everything out logically and it wouldn't have been worth it
    The-Mary: damn, that's some strong thinking. how long ago was that?
    -Jamie-: this year. actually, this school year, so last year lol
    The-Mary: nice work. do you have a gf now? some girl on alloy named kayla said she's your girlfriend.
    -Jamie-: lol kayla is not my girlfriend. a real girlfriend wouldn't post like that on the internet
    The-Mary: that's what i was thinking, what girl wouldn't get dumped immediately for doing that?
    The-Mary: so, is it important that a girl be able to tell you on the plane from france "you have to hear this band?" is that a good quality in a lady?

    -Jamie-: nooooo, because they might be like 'listen to this cd, its Spice Girls rarities!' lol
    The-Mary: HAHAH
    The-Mary: what's the biggest ass you've ever made out of yourself in the name of love?

    -Jamie-: being myself. that's a pretty big ass, trust me lol
    The-Mary: aw, i doubt it
    -Jamie-: i have a large repertoire of bad jokes. from my dad.
    The-Mary: awwwww yeah. the right ones will find it charming.
    -Jamie-: i hope :|
    The-Mary: ok, thank you for talking today!
    -Jamie-: no problem. it was nice chatting with you
    -Jamie-: its 10 to one, sandwich time!
    The-Mary: enjoy!
