Ski-mendous: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs took five minutes from packing his salopettes ready for a week of slope-based raving at next month’s Volvo Snowbombing to talk to Kara Simsek. Guess what – he doesn’t actually know very much about prehistoric reptiles at all. What a gobsmacking revelation.

Notion: What can people expect from your set at Volvo Snowbombing?
Volvos everywhere! That will be the main focus, then some live dance music and costumes and stuff.

Notion: What are your Volvo Snowbombing essentials?
A Volvo, that’s all I need.

Notion: Have you ever been parred by the snow?
I broke my wrist standing still. Well I was stood still facing up the slope, jumped around to get going and fell over. Pretty embarrassing.

Notion: That wouldn’t have happened if you had stayed safely inside a Volvo. Who are you most looking forwards to seeing at the festival?
Cuban Brothers, Carl Craig, Todd Terje, Ramadanman, Rodigan… so many great names on the line up!

Notion: If you could create a robot out of snow what would be its special powers?
Good question…?

Notion: Um, so you don’t like machines. You obviously like dinosaurs – were there any dinosaurs that lived in the snow?
Don’t think so, but I’m no expert, it was all hot back then apparently.

Notion: [Ahem, woolly mammoths] What will your fancy dress costume for the street parade be?
I didn’t know there was one…

Notion: Really? Oh, ok. There is. It’s like the pinnacle of the whole event. Um, what’s your favourite thing about Austrian cuisine?
Sausage variety.

Notion: And, who’s your favourite Austrian?
Mozart probably

Notion: More than Arnie?! Woah. And, keeping it topical, what’s your opinion on Charlie Sheen?
I think Im a bit late on this one, but what I’ve seen is him freaking out and winning. So I’m behind him all the way.
