"I need a lot of outlets. I am a pretty anxious person and creating is a way for me to deal with it. I know that it sounds very stupid, but it is my way of dealing with my anxiety. I have a lot of worries. I do not express it very much in my life because I just create a lot. I am at my best when I am doing a lot, when I am creative, that is when I feel the best."
"One of our favorite Joe Strummer quotes was, “No input, no output.” Meaning, we’re going to hear a band, we’re going to go to a museum, or we’re going to go hang out with some writer that we admire. We’re going to get some input, because if we don’t, then we have nothing. It’s a circle. It’s a respiratory thing."
Fuck this is some brutal truth. Right you are!
"An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s."

"We agree to be disappointed sometimes so that we can be exhilarated every now and again."
