Fahim Zaman- Vocals, Lead Guitar

1. What are you doing for the holidays?

Fahim - Celebrating with the family mostly, we do thanksgiving and xmas pretty big :).

J. Lee - I'm eating, working out, and making music like always!!

Munir - Going to hang out as much as I can with friends and family and write a bunch of new music for Slant.

2. This Halloween season I did what?

Fahim - We (Slant) performed two events, the Dark Harbor event at the Queen Mary (Long Beach,CA) and this really cool launch party for this non-profit start-up called "The City Aftermath." Dark Harbor is always fun because they have a great setup for the bands and the mazes are really good (Plus isn't the Queen Mary haunted?) And the second event was at a warehouse and everyone was dressed up having a good time. We try to always do a Halloween show because when else do you get to dress up? (Outside of the bedroom)

J. Lee- Passed out on the bathroom floor and had my singer and manager put baby powder all over my body.

Munir - Mostly celebrated Halloween with the band and played a couple Halloween shows. I kept it pretty tame this year. but next year, full on trick o treating.

3. Did you dress up this year?

Fahim - Yes maam, Had a hockey mask on...looked scary.

J. Lee - Yea!! I wore clothes. Not sure where they went when I woke up.

4. What is your favorite Halloween candy or treat?

Fahim - Reese's Peanut butter cups, I think I ate around 30 of them throughout the day after Halloween.


Munir - Funsize skittles.

5. What are you thankful for?

Fahim - Honestly, gotta be appreciative of everything in my life + life itself. I'm even thankful for responding to these interview questions haha. Life is a gift we all receive and what we do with it/how we live it is up to us...and that's the awesome part. Learn from the bad stuff and enjoy the good as much as you can...and of course friends, family (band included), and  all the retarded sh** that makes us go "waiiiit...really?"... Oh and cereal.

J. Lee - My band and everyone/everything that's influenced my life. The Good or the bad.

Munir - People, family and life.

6. Do you have a favorite dish for Thanksgiving or do you enjoy everything?

Fahim - Stuffing for sure...I can eat stuffing all day stuffed.

J. Lee - Mmm Apple pie with cool whip cream (Stewie Griffin's voice).

Munir - I enjoy all the side dishes.

7. Who's the one who eats the most when it comes to the holiday season?

Fahim - I wanna say Jimmy....or probably myself...I like food.

J. Lee - ME!

8. Do you or have you gone shopping on Black Friday, if so what did you find and buy?

Fahim - I bought myself a nexus 7 for my self BDay present on the Thursday before Black Friday. I say no to Black Friday, it scares me.

J. Lee - No, I do DRUMS ALL DAY, ERRDAY!!!

9. When it comes to the holiday season does the band all get together or does everyone do their own thing?

Fahim - I think a lil bit of both, we spend together writing new songs and getting ready for the new year coming up.

J. Lee - We spend time with our family which includes the band but we take the weekend to party hard and celebrate!

10. What is your favorite Christmas song to sing and why?

Fahim - I like the Christmas song & Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

J. Lee- - Not sure I have a favorite Christmas song. But I do have a favorite song at the moment. "Ragnarok" by Periphery. Drums are pure beef!

11. One thing you really want for Christmas is what?

Fahim - I want a lil more "yeaaa" and a lil less "meeeehhh."

J. Lee - To perform our music for a huge crowd, 15,000- 20,000. Then attempt to meet/party after with everyone in the venue!

12. Do you still believe in Santa Claus?

Fahim - I dont think I ever believed that some dude comes down the chimney and hooks it up with presents...I mean I love christmas but for dude to visit EVERY house was just logistically impossible. Even in my small kid brain, but some kids took it seriously so I went with it.

J. Lee - No. Unless Santa Claus had huge boobs, a vagina, and Scarlett Johanson's face and body. I'd like that.

Munir - There is one on every corner and every mall.

13. What type of Christmas tree do you prefer white or green or your own version?

Fahim - Our family had the same fake tree since I was born...My mom gave it to the movers when she moved a couple years back. I was pissed. I still want THAT tree. :(

J. Lee - Don't got a Christmas tree. But mistle toes are always welcome to our shows. Christmas or not!

14. Are you a late or early Christmas shopper?

Fahim - Depends on how broke I am...Ha ha ha...I usually try to do online shopping so  it gets shipped to peeps and its just a couple clicks ya know?

J. Lee - Late shopper.

15. One thing you have to do on New Years Eve?

Fahim - Make a wish. I usually forget what I wished for the next day but I know I wished for something... lol

Munir - Drink massive Jager with friends.

16. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?

Fahim - Yeah to come up with a resolution and stick to it...I'm thinking...

J. Lee - I don't have New Years resolutions since I'd rather not wait for the beginning of every year to get things done.
