How do you get back into the grove of writing/creating/art-ing when you tumble into mental blocks?
My current system is all in a kerfuffle due to lost and dying notebooks/computers right in the middle of trying to get back into things... and now I'm more stuck than before... Just need some inspiration, or a good swift kick.

Any plans to do more videos from Theatre is Evil?


we MIGHT do a st kilda video. if certain things work out :)
That would be excellent!

 So I'm free to kidnap Michael Pope, throw him in my Civic hatchback with a camera, and drive from Lexington to Harvard Square to make Mass Ave?!?

do you have any regrets about the Kickstarter for Theatre Is Evil? anything you'd do differently if you could do it over?

p.s. it's easily one of my favorite albums of all time..i mean it.


i don't believe in regrets. i really don't.
i think everything is learning. i learned a TON. it's all information i'll carry along with me for next time.

i think it's the best album i've ever made and putting it out experimentally wasn't a mistake - it was a pick your poison scenario. if i'd put it out with a label i probably would have had an equal and opposite set of agonies.

are we allowed to make multiple questions?
 If so, have you ever left any of your fave songs unpublished, just because you thought it was too similar to something you had already recorded?

totally agree..and certainly didn't mean to imply you SHOULD have regrets by any means! it's an incredible piece of work...inspires me to no end.

Legendary Pink Dots will be here in Dallas on October 5th, and I plan to see them for the first time. Do you have recommendations for a crash course into their music?

YES!!!!!
start with these albums, my all time favorites:

-the maria dimension
-the golden age
-asylum
-any day now

and then, if you're still seeking, move onto:

-from here you'll watch the world go by

somewhere on the box Amanda had also posted a playlist of her favorite LPD songs, and I found it incredibly helpful when I was just starting to get into their music

My thanks to Amanda + Sydney. I'll take your suggestions, and I will find LPD post on here. Very much looking forward to becoming more familiar with their music and the show in October.

How is your friend doing? The one Who was sick last year.

The Utrecht gig was awesome, and your new song was really touching.

If you wanted to take it off Twitter and Shadowbox completely, you could maybe do a Google Hangout... that'd be really interesting.

If you had to delete your twitter account or never blog again, which would you choose (from a connection/discussion POV and disregarding promotion/exposure pros and cons)

As focusfoxx said, a Google hangout might be a pretty cool idea.
