whatever idk i think they’re funny and that’s all that matters x


“While we were recording in Nashville, when we were finished with the tracks, we would listen to everything we had made and dance along like crazy. We invited people we had met in a shop near the area of the studio and our friends like Juliette Lewis or Harmony Korine. I never worked like that before. It was the first time I was with such creative people in the studio. I learned a lot, now I can isolate myself, I can experiment without trying, even if there are many people in the studio. There’s a huge universe in my mind I usually go to find shelter in. I may not be that lucky in my everyday life, but as far as my work is concerned – I’m blessed. In the studio I’m always surrounded by good people. My mood is always good there.”

“Pleasure starts and ends with recording the album. Then the pain starts, touring, promotion, difficult stuff.”

“When I find myself alone in the studio facing the microphone, I’m so free, capable of anything… I feel safer than anywhere else in these little “boxes” that are my songs.”


hi pls check out this vine compilation that i made to commemorate vine!! #ripvine

Bring on the “Stydia though the years” compilation videos. I want every scene, every look, every touch, even every simple mention of the other’s name from fucking season 1 episode 1 to season 6 episode fucking 10. The show started and ended with Stydia, and i need all those scenes in one place right the fuck now. I need to see their entire journey right before my very eyes. It will be the most glorious thing to ever exist. Give it to me.
