"The way I try to make music is like, if you’re listening to it and not doing anything else and concentrating and listening really hard and listening to every single thing, then hopefully you’re going to get the full picture. I’m not saying it needs concentration at all, but I was a little bummed out when I started realizing some of the songs I made were really just to do the laundry to. But it’s a good thing in a way; in the end, we’re just carpenters, we’re making little tables for people to put things on. Being a musician is a job, it’s a very utilitarian kind of nice thing, and music heals and it can help people and it can make things less boring, and that’s the reason I’m here. It’s what I do, it’s not like a grand thing, it’s just like you have some tools and you make some things and hopefully people like it."

Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.

Back from a week of work in NYC just on time to attend Forest Swords last night at Saint Luke’s! Giving meaning to the word Prayer!
Off to France this Thursday and to Spain for some well deserved holidays and then I will have the money to buy new chemicals to process the 4 rolls of film from the past months! And hopefully some extra money to work prints!
