The Complete Interview List
1 - Tell us how your project(s) were started.
It was started five years ago, now five individuals in one rock band, each with different musical heights and aspirations in rock-n-roll music. So... we combined two previous bands as a side project, and it somehow just clicked and worked out much better. We competed in a battle of the bands, won a recording contract and recorded - from there we just ricoched all over. That's how it was basically started.
2 - What does music, in it's entirety, mean to you?
It's art. It's audio. It's your subconscious. It can make you feel different. It gives you fantasy. Strength, or even if you want to be blue. It's an art everybody can relate to somehow.
3 - What does art, in it's entirety, mean to you?
When you make something beautiful out of nothing.
4 - Who is your favorite author, and why?
Jack Kerouac. When I was a little kid and I read On the Road, I was like, "Wow!" I was really inspirred by that book. Since then he's been one of my favorites. And Halldór Laxness, he was an Icelandic Nobel Prize winner. He does Icelandic reality novels that are so fucking heavy, you can hardly get through a whole book.
5 - As your best friend, describe yourself.
I don't know. Kind of experimental. Fucking experimental, like to try new things. Impatient, and ambicious. Sometimes too ambicious maybe.
6 - As your worst enemy, describe yourself.
Probably... shit I don't know. Next question.
7 - If your persona were immortalized as a cartoon character, who would it be?
Hmmm. Who would it be? That's a good question. Bugs Bunny.
8 - Do you think there are conspiracies against the "everyday person"?
Yes. If you go out and walk across the street, sure.
9 - What do you do with your spare or free time?
I write a lot, poems and lyrics. I read a lot. I write music on the acoustic guitar for my acoustic side project, Moving Company, which I spend a lot of time on back home. Sleep, eat, drink with my friend and go out.
10 - Please give us your interpretation of "the meaning of life".
Be yourself and do what you want to do. Life is too short, so sieze the day. You know, carpe diem. I think that's the only way you should live life, unless you want to be held down the rest of your life, with children, a wife, a few cars and debts and so. First try and expand, try something new, if it doesn't work for you... try living the middle class life.
