    Ryan Guldemond from Canada's Mother Mother is starting February off on a good foot, by Taking Aim with Amy Sciarretto. Because of that fact, we know and he knows that he is a brave soul. The band's album The Sticks should be on the top of your "Things to Check Out" list once you are done reading this Take Aim.

    This little chat will have you humming the Canadian national anthem.

    If you were not doing music, you would be...

    Writing novels has always been a pipe dream, but I think that's even harder than writing songs and getting them on the radio. God forbid I'd still be a line cook.

    Any non-musical skills, hobbies or talents?

    Not bad in the kitchen, dabble in the prose, but can't spell to save my life... can sketch a doodle of stunning mediocrity... hmm ... it's sad. Fairly one dimensionally into music ... you hear about these famous people (not that I'm famous - infamous in some circles) with their carpentry ticket... I just loathe 'em!

    Pick one song from The Sticks and share a writing or recording story. Put us in the moment with you.

    Well I'm not much of a poet in that "stare at the stars" kinda way but this one time I was very drunk and it was very late and I was alone and feeling pathetically existential whilst smoking a ciggy and staring at the stars (funnily enough), and I began reciting the words for "Infinitesimal": a tale about quantum physics and one's gripe with their insignificance... I promptly went inside and put chords to it... it was a first to go the Jim Morrison route with a song.

    Favorite thing about being Canadian?

    The misconception that I'm polite, lovely and just so nice.

    Biggest misconception about Canadians?

    You know where I'm going with this right?

    Twitter-size your bio -- tell us everything we SHOULD or NEED to know in 140 words or characters -- your choice!

    Ugh really? Do I have to? Okay, well nothing's for certain, but I'm pretty sure I'm some kind of diluted product of post-modern individualism confusing apathy for apogee.

    Did you check out The Sticks by Mother Mother yet?
