Name: Julia Zulia
Location: Harrisburg, the State Capitol of Pennsylvania. It's close to Hershey, where they make chocolate. It's also very close to Three Mile Island, a nuclear power plant that almost had a meltdown in the late 70's.
Occupation that pays me: Registered Nurse. I have had poop thrown at me, have been peed on, thrown up on, and have been mistaken for a punching bag. How I love my profession.
Musical influences: Because of my parents, I grew up on Keith Green. He would have to be the initial influence. In 8th grade however, I saw The Cure perform 'Just Like Heaven' on an MTV video awards show and I was totally dumbfounded. I've never been as taken by a band, as I have been with The Cure.
Favorite Band: The Cure
Favorite Albums: Disintegration--The Cure (above and beyond anything else), Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me--The Cure, White Light, White Heat, White Trash--Social Distortion, Alkaline Trio--Alkaline Trio, Ghoti Hook--Sumo Surprise
Favorite Male Vocalist: Mike Patton
Favorite Female Vocalist: Bjork
Musical Projects I'm in: Currently in Divebomber since '00. I play guitar, bass, and sing. I've also performed in 'The Dark Forest--An Oratorio'.
In 5th grade, I performed in Central Dauphin School District's version of 'The Music Man'. In 6th grade, I performed in The Dauphin County Chorus concert, and I was in the same row as a girl who fainted and fell off the bleachers. In 7th-9th grade I was in East Jr. High's all girl group 'the Patriettes'. Then I became anti-social and hated everyone until I graduated. I'm okay now, and just hate minivans and bad drivers--and you seem to see the both of them together often.
