Bass is right brained. He is very into music, in the sense that he loves divulging into each piece he listens to and what it means to him. He knows what part sounds like what and with just enough practice can play it. He keeps his beats tight, and sings under his breath mainly. Music to him is his existence. Between music, TV shows, movies, and sleep you've hit 23 hours of Bass’s day. Bass knows much more about music, and it comes off that way. His ideas for the podcast are very formed and calculating, the opposite of his right brain mind. He wants an agenda, and likes to have things formulating in his head and not be put on the spot.
Treble is left brained. He is more logical, though he doesn't seem that way. His ability to do critical thinking, and reasoning is strong. very strong. Music is a getaway for him. He listens to it to escape from himself. It’s a beautiful disaster his brain, and he describes it as a file cabinet of information. With him, he likes to listen to music that makes him feel different, and he just loves to read when he listens. What he brings to the show is the music genre’s that Bass doesn't listen to very often. His podcast personality is the same as around his friends. Wacky to say the least. He likes “popping the trunk” because he feels that flowing with the podcast is the best idea, again the opposite of his brain.
Interests and Hobbies
Bass enjoys playing musical instruments. In his dorm there is a guitar and a bass. He is a bass player at heart, and it is his favorite instrument. He is more than an avid video game player, or “gamer”. He is a huge soccer fan, so Fifa is his favorite sports game. Other than that, Halo, Skate, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4, Star Wars Battlefront, and NBA 2k. He considers himself a smoothie connoisseur. He enjoys writing, but cannot finish a piece.
Treble comes from a more balanced repertoire of hobbies. He likes to camp and hike, and generally play sports whether it be basketball, racquetbal, soccer, or football. He also loves reading. His favorite author is Ernest Hemmingway, but his favorite poem is “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus. He also likes video games a lot. His three favorite video games are Skyrim, Madden, and Minecraft. He is an avid Steam “gamer” and plans to play Day Z for the rest of his life.
Plans for the Future
Not kidding when I write this, and I will quote this. Bass said, “I’ll probably be homeless”. So please for the sake of Bass, not so much Treble make these guys famous. Other than that he wants to be one of a few things. If this podcast works out it will be something he does a lot. He also dreams of being in a band, writing, or becoming a world renown soccer star. However, this whole soccer thing… not going to happen, but a man can dream.
Treble has a more structured plan for his future as of right now. He likes doing the podcast and forsees it as being something they do for a while if it works out. He is getting an Accounting degree and will test for his CPA when he gets out and then he will attempt to work for Price Waterhouse Cooper. His dream is to start a company with his best friend from high school.

They are opposites, kind of. But everything they bring to the table makes for a comedic and developed thought process and comentary on music, life, and anything they want to talk about, but only on Thursdays.
