    “On the Spot: Ben Cohodas, Pre-architecture sophomore”

    How do you feel about techno music?

    I think it’s good. It’s good. It has a good beat to it. You can dance to it.

    How do you feel about raves?

    I’ve only been to one, and it was a little iffy.

    I just feel like a lot of people are really getting into raves and all that, especially our generation here at the UA. It’s kind of becoming this really popular phenomenon.

    I don’t really follow that popularity trend. I do my own thing.

    So you like to stray away from the crowd?

    Yeah, more like stay away from the raves. I’m not really into being all wild and that crazy hand stuff and the lights and all that goodies.

    How do you feel about neon?

    It’s good stuff. But I am really not into that. It’s so wild. I saw someone get hit in the face once, and I was like “”I don’t want to be here.””

    When was the last time you got into a fistfight?

    About two years ago. We were shoving each other.

    Are you kind of over that phase? Is that like a maturity thing?

    I mean, you don’t really go in to a party thinking, “”Hey I’m gonna kick someone’s ass,”” but if someone is talking smack then it’s going down.

    For sure. So you said you are kind of feeling techno music. How do you feel about today’s music? Do you think its getting better or worse as time goes on?

    I think it’s getting better. With techno, I don’t really listen to it as much as I listen to Kanye or Kid Cudi, but it’s getting popular, and I like it.

    Have you heard of rap artist J. Cole?

    No, I’ve probably heard his songs, just didn’t know his name.

    You probably haven’t. He’s Drake’s favorite rapper.

    OK, then. I will download that.

    What would your first thought be when you found out that you won the lottery?

    Holy shit. I think I’d be pretty freaked out. My first thought would be a car, then a good, big house, call my parents, not going here anymore.

    Do you feel that you’ve done enough good things, karma-wise, in life to deserve winning all that money out of the clear blue?

    Yeah, I’m worthy. I’ve done a lot of good things. I have good moral values. Most of the time I’m a good person. I don’t know if anybody can say they are a good person all of the time, but I do some good things.
