“I’d been talking about [more X-Files] for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. So let’s say two years we’ve been talking about doing it. Now it’s the fun part. Now we actually get to do it.”

David Duchovny in Entertainment Weekly, May 2015

I try to control what I do, but at the same time, I like to dance with whatever rhythm life proposes to me.

[Interview] An honest talk with rapper Giriboy: Back and Forth

from here!

He doesn’t only move forward, but backward as well. Giriboy’s life, as a rapper and producer, is like that as well.

I released an album not too long ago. People used to tell me all my songs sounded about the same so I listened to them and realized that they actually did. Unlike the past albums where I planned and arranged all the songs, I got beats from different artists I’ve wanted to work with for this album. They were all good so I could focus more on the rap, melody, and the lyrics.

Aside from the music, I left everything else up to other people as well. They were people who were known these days like the coaches from the music video team Digipedi. I just told them to do what they thought was good and they came up with what I liked.

The album title ‘Coming of age Ceremony’ came from the thought that I wasn’t young anymore. Instead of getting allowances, I’m giving my mom money, and soon I’ll have to get married - things like that. When I was young, I just made music without any other intentions, but from a certain point, I was overthinking about it. The album is supposed to show my feelings about wanting to go back to my old mindset, before I was an “adult.”

My original dream was a producer. I had no intentions of becoming a rap/hip-hop artist. I think it only happened because I started my music career with Swings hyung. I want to be involved in all genres of music, therefore I listen to a lot of different kinds of music. When I wake up, I go on to the music site and listen to all the new albums. Hip-hop, ballad, dance/idol music, and even works on Soundcloud. The artists I pay attention to more than others are Zion.T and Crush. They are really good! I’m also a fan of Oh Hyuk and Mason the Soul.

My ideal type is some one who works hard and has her own style (OBVIOUSLY ME). Even if they are not pretty, they don’t think ‘What’s wrong with me?’ Instead, they accept themselves and make something out of what they have. I don’t like people that just spend their days doing nothing without a dream.

When I work on my songs, I don’t think about it much. I just put in what comes to my head first, and rest as much as I worked. I’m not really smart, I’m just good at concentrating. I would be zoning out and randomly come up with an idea. The concept ‘Back and Forth 30 minutes’ was only hard to come up with at first as well. After I came up with it, everything worked out fast and well. I don’t change/edit my songs that much, but after I release the album, I remix my own songs.

I can’t say anything about fashion yet. I always get advice from stylist Wook hyung or Genius Nochang. I ask things like, “I’m about to buy this. How is it?” or “Hyung, I’m going to wear these together. Is it okay?” I’m influence a lot by Nochang - in terms of music and style as well. When Nochang does it, it looks nice. Even the hat I’m wearing now is similar to Nochang’s.

Just a quick update!

Tonight, I’ll be recording an “Interview Roleplay” video for you guys. It’ll be me acting as the interviewer, asking some of the most common questions, and pausing for you to answer. 
I’ve found that little exercises like that can help immensely with tackling pre-interview jitters and general unpreparedness. 
The video should be up by tomorrow!
