Writing songs makes me so happy. They are written in a moment of being tapped into yourself, or into life and so they’re living. And then you plummet down to the ground. I’m always scared I’ll never write another.
Creativity happens in the moments between all the internal noise, which is why it feels so good.
I’ve been learning a lot about things I had no idea about. Like the whole theater world has its own language. It’s just different: so many great ideas and structure and actors and the whole way you connect with actors.
Not a quote but its something
I went to SUNY Purchase, where a lot of musician friends of mine went, and other film friends, artsy friends. It’s like a state art school, or something like that. And the school freaked us out so much about the corporate art situation in general. The music business, the movie business, all of the businesses… We left school absolutely terrified of them.
I’m so behind on pop culture that I was just listening and learning, and learning and listening.
I’m really bracing myself! You know, it’s kind of intense! I prefer recording records and playing live shows to doing television things. They feel terrifying to me. But I also feel absolutely amazed that they’ve invited me to play there!
I feel like all the people who work in plays or in film or write a novel, they have to have so much patience. They’re in it for the long haul, unlike musicians who go write a 3-minute song and immediately get to go play it.
But I live, in my mom’s and dad’s house, with my little brother.
