i downloaded interviews and that was there too

Special Programme: Perfume "Collaboration" Excerpts

Morisanchuu: How will Perfume be like when everyone turns 50?
N: I think we’ll still be together.
K: Yeah, We do talk about it quite a bit huh - how the 3 of us will be like. I wonder if we’ll still be able to dance when we’re 50.
A: That is a problem huh. 50 years old - that’d be around the same age as my mom.
K: So it wouldn’t be weird to have a 20 year old daughter huh.
N: Well, but I get the feeling that there’ll definitely be something interesting that we can’t imagine. Don’t you think so?

Kimura Kaela: If you were to change your hairstyle, how would it be like?
K: Since I’ve always had long hair, I want to try having hair around as short as Nocchi’s, or maybe even Kaela-san’s.
A: Since Kashimama’s is short too, it’ll probably look good.
K: What about A-chan?
A: Huh, I don’t have any in mind.
N: What about the colour?
A: Ah, well, it seems like it’ll be really fun to wear black clothes with hair that’s browner and brighter.
K: That’s true, huh. It’ll change their impression on others.
A: So I guess, maybe a bright colour or something?
N: In my teens, I had hair about as long as Kashiyuka’s. But right now, I really feel like having a fringe again.
K: You haven’t had a fringe in some time huh.
A: Nocchimama has that hairstyle too. (Laughs)
N: Yeah, all of my female family members have started having that hairstyle.
K: Well, since everyone has more or less the same image, it probably looks good on everyone.

Takahashi Yuu: How do you keep the things you treasure?
N: Well I do have a treasured items box.
K&A: Me too.
N: With like our matching bracelets.
K: And straps.
A: And costumes, as well as letters from fans - as much as six boxes.
N: That’s amazing!
A: That’s why I keep mine above.
K: Ah, so you’re the above type? I’m the below type. The things I don’t have space for at home I leave at my parents’.
N: I guess I’m the below type too. But they’re all scattered about in various places.
A: Please keep them together! (Laughs)

Yuusuke Santamaria: What do guys do that make your hearts skip a beat?
N: I like nasally voices. Nasal inflammations are the best! So if we’re talking about actions, I like it when they cough. Like “eghem” or something.
A: Ain’t that no good! (Laughs)
K: I like it when they make a face like nothing’s happened after they almost fall. Like when they think no one saw, and without letting out their voice, they gaze off to the side.
A: Something that makes my heart skip a beat… The person I like!

MIKIKO: What are the moments that make you most happy for joining Perfume?
N: Though there a plenty, recently it’s been when we receive choreography from Sensei, and being able to dance that really cute choreography makes me go, “This is the best!”
K: For example, when we have our first lives at overseas locations, the moment we start, I often think, “Our dreams are coming true! Right now! Ah, I’m so glad that it’s the three of us, I’m so glad that it’s this team. There really isn’t any moment that’s happier than this!”
A: Yeah, I understand that. We get really nervous, right? But somehow, standing on stage, overcoming our nervous selves, being together with our precious comrades, and at the very end, we say “Well then, we’re Perfume! Thank you very much!” And then when we bow, I often think that I’m really glad to have joined Perfume. Like, nothing can replace that sense of accomplishment, and I can’t get enough of it.
N: It’s a bit complex, but I get it. And I’m sure Sensei thinks the same.

Miyagawa Daisuke: What are the parts about the others that you dislike, or wish would be changed?
N: Well, I mean it’s not like I wish for it to change, but if I had to say it, there is something… So A-chan likes to eat tasty things, but she has a small appetite, so when she gets full in the middle of a meal, she’ll become a little moody. The first bite is her peak, like “it tastes so goood!!”
All: (Laughs)
K: I also have something about A-chan.
A: Oh no! What could it be? Why is everyone choosing me? (Laughs)
K: It’s not like I dislike it or want it changed, so it’s like just some info, but there are times when she really gets into the choreography, and gets into a groove, and becomes unable to dance normally.
All: (Laughs)

Pornograffiti: What kind of house do you live in right now?
N: I’ve tried out various spacious floor plans, but the clutter began to build up, so now I’ve tightened it up.
A: You remodeled a lot huh.
N: I did. It’s left me worn out.
K: You threw away quite a lot of things, right?
N: Yeah.
A: All at once, right?
N: Yup.
A: As for me, my kitchen doesn’t have partitions to separate it from the rest of the living room, so I have to keep it clean. Other than that, the scenery is pretty.
K: Because it’s high up, huh.
A: Yeah.
N: Kashiyuka’s room is the probably the one I’ve seen the most photos of.
K: Ah, maybe so.
N: Inside anan (the magazine).
K: It’s scary how much of it is available to see. (Laughs)
A: She has plants, and she’s an animal person too. She really loves raising things. (Laughs)
K: Yeah, I have many living things.
N: If you look it up in anan you’ll probably more or less understand how it’s like. (Laughs)

Maeda Kenta: Do lives feel good?
A: Well, it feels suuuper great.
N: Feels suuuper great. Nothing can take its place.
K: I want to experience even more of it.

Chatmonchy: What kind of pajamas do you wear to sleep?
N: Recently, I’ve been wearing rompers, the one that look like a pair of shorts and a T-shirt joined together. The thin one.
K: I’m finally wearing the one I got from A-chan.
A: Really? I’m happy! The organic cotton one right?
K: I got it for my birthday but I thought I’d be too cold if I wore it in winter since it’s thin. So I’ve finally gotten to wearing it recently.
A: Recently I’ve been particular about the materials. To begin with I already have 80 or 90 sets, but I really really love pajamas, so there are times when I’ve bought one before I know it. Like, why’s this in my bag? (Laughs)

Maximum the Hormone: If you had to get a tattoo, what and where would you get it inked?
N: I think, I’d get something tattooed onto my scalp after shaving my hair.
K: How scary!
A: Wouldn’t that be troublesome for the tattoo artist? (Laughs)
K: I’d tattoo a triangle onto the back of my neck.
A: Ah! The fashionable sort.
K: If I got something like that, I wonder if it’d make feel like an android.
A: I can’t imagine it, but I like the kanji for strict (厳) because I think it’s the most balanced.
K: You’ve mentioned it before, huh. (Laughs)
A: Yeah. I’d tattoo that.

Manabe Daito: What’s the hardest challenge you’ve faced from using technology?
N: The pressure from Cannes was overwhelming, huh.
K: Yeah.
A: We had to wear the machinery on our shoulders for about an hour huh.
K: Yeah, on standby.
A: Yeah, after putting on the costumes and turning the switch on, the nervousness continued to build. Usually for our lives we put on our costumes right before the performance begins. But for Cannes, we didn’t know when our turn would come, and we didn’t know if we could smoothly put on the machinery, so we decided to get dressed earlier.
K: But overcoming that slow build-up was really fun, right? Like, the feeling of slowly getting closer to our goal was really enjoyable.
A: Yeah. That’s why we’d like to continue to challenge new things, so we’ll continue to await any new proposals too.
N: We’ll be in your care.

Seki Kazuaki: What MV(s) did you dislike filming?
A: Wasn’t the reverse playback really difficult?
K: That’s what I thought of too.
N: (Groans)
A: (Laughs) But, y'know, wasn’t Seki-san waiting for that answer?
K: All that hard work…
A: In the second chorus of Magic of Love, though it looks like we’re dancing normally, the truth is that we danced it in reverse.
K: From the way our hairs fly up, and the balls move backwards, you can tell that it was in reverse.
A: Yup yup. And the movements were a little weird too. (Laughs) That really was difficult..
N: We had to download a reverse playback application.
A: Yeah, and we recorded a lot with it, and because it was so difficult, we had to save all of it.
K&N: (Laughs)
A: And when we tried doing it for real it looked really bad.
K: We took quite a lot of takes huh. But it turned into an interesting MV, huh.
A&N: Yeah.
A: I really love that MV.

Notes from the Nakata interview
- It’s been about 14 years since they became acquainted. Nakata was about 22-23 at the time. Perfume were around 14-15.
- Nakata used to look much more like an uncle than he does now. His hair was short, and was blacker. He was wearing sunglasses too. It’s because he thoughts adults were cooler, so he wanted to look like one sooner.
- A-chan practiced hard to get the strange rhythm for Oishii Recipe down, but Nakata was very cold during the recording, which made her feel frustrated and tear a bit.
- Nakata talks about why he gets his vocalists to sit down while recording but I don’t really get what he means because it’s too abstract.
- Nakata uses auto-tune just because he thinks the songs would sound better and cooler with it.
- It’s not like Nakata has always had confidence in his music. But from some point, he began having confidence in the tracks he gives to Perfume.
- Computer City was the changing point in Perfume’s attitudes towards Nakata’s music. It was the song that made Perfume understand what Nakata was going for with his music. They brought the single’s poster to their high school to promote it. Before that, they used to be embarrassed about and keep quiet about their activities.
- Nakata has never told them, but he has always planned for their music to go in a cooler direction when they grew a little older. And looking back, they went in that direction earlier than he expected.
- The reason Nakata doesn’t really go to Perfume’s lives is because he doesn’t want it to change his impression of what songs he should be making for Perfume.
- Nakata thinks it’s important where a person is born, and he tries not to make music that can’t have its place of origin identified by the listener. So he doesn’t really go overseas much because he’s afraid of having his music sense changed.


I hate to see you cry like this.

This is from the movie “Okaasan, ore wa daijobu” (Mother, I’m fine).

After downloading, I stayed up until 2 am just to watch it cause I’m stupid like that and I don’t want to wait till tomorrow either.

Once you watch this movie, you’ll witness an extraordinary acting from Yamada Ryosuke.
I even cried so much, gomen ne.

I bet haters will cry too, haters can’t hate this !

Ryosuke did a good job with this one. If I’m not mistaken, he once said in an interview that he didn’t sleep for one night for a role in a movie, to be able to grasp the weak and tired kind of feeling. I think it was this movie.

Don’t hesitate, please watch it !! Cause it’s good like that !

subdivisi0ns  asked:

what are your favorite jpj interviews?

Guitar Player Magazine 1977 (x)

Probably the most indepth interview given during his tenure in Led Zeppelin and the story that happened after this interview is even better tbh (x)

August 12th, 1979 (x) (to listen: click on the speaker icon and it will start downloading).

 It’s more of a Robert Plant interview than it is a JPJ one but he’s there and does talk. A favorite of mine mainly because of the era. Later era Zeppelin Jonesy is my favorite Jonesy. 

Lemon Squeezings 2001 (x)

This is, by far, the motherload of John Paul Jones interviews. 

Mike Bullard Show, May 2000 (x)

He’s too cute. :’) 

November 17th, 1997 AOL Chat (x)

I don’t know if this counts as an interview, but it’s still an interesting read.

- Whatever THIS is  (x)

Thanks for the question! It’s been a while since I’ve watched/read some of these and it was nice to dive into them again. Ofc there’s probably more but these are the ones that come off the top of my head. 

anonymous asked:

Hello Hello! Can you please tell me what interview is the one where Liam is wearing the red/white/blue star shirt and has cute ziam action and Zayn helping him off the ground after being kicked? Thank you!

Hi anon,

That’s the you  generation interview and it was deleted but found it here. ( i have it downloaded too)


anonymous asked:

Can i have an angst mark scenario? Like you arguing alot and then you runnin off and he gets worried and all? Thank u x

Hi there! Hope this is what you were looking for, enjoy! ✨

Listen: x


“What do you mean I’m being immature right now? It seems you forgot but I’m older than you.”

You finished wiping the last piano key and put the cover of the piano down.“

“Then start acting like it. You already know my schedule’s full and I don’t have much say when it comes to free time.”

You couldn’t believe you were having this conversation with Mark right now. The two of you already hardly get to see each other. The past couple times you spoke, it ended up in a fight and here you were, a face-to-face meeting in the music room after two months and a fight started barely even after ten minutes.

“Whatever then, don’t come to my recital. I honestly don’t care if you show up or not but shouldn’t you put more interest into what I care about?”

Mark ran a hand through his black hair showing his frustration. 

“Do you see how self-centered you are all the time? I hardly have any time to breathe, what makes you think I’ll have time to care about your interests?”

By now tears were starting to spew from the corner of your eyes. The two of you met at school while he walked in on you playing piano in the music room one day. He was trying to escape from his crazy fangirls and randomly hid in the room you were playing in. He was in awe of your talent and the two of you started to spend time together during breaks. 

That was then though, now was different. He never came to school anymore due to his busy schedule after debut. That was understandable but it was bringing pain and frustration to you. You would find yourself missing him too much, unable to focus on piano. Then when he did call he would usually sound tired and annoyed, he never put on the smile or funny personality he had in he media when he was with you. 

Him calling you self-centered was really taking things too far.

“Mark Lee. If I’m really as self-centered as you say I am, then I wouldn’t spend all my time downloading all your performances and interviews in my phone, watching them when I miss you. I wouldn’t spend my time replying to all the hate comments your group gets on articles. And lastly, I wouldn’t line up for long hours at music shows just to go in and catch a glimpse of you. If all this is causing hurt to the both of us, then I think we should stop seeing each other. Both of us have better things to focus on anyways.”

You couldn’t stop the tears from betraying your emotions but what you said was all true. Ever since you started seeing Mark it seems like your interest deviated from the piano to him. He also needed to focus on his music career, he can’t have you pulling him down.

You wiped your tears before they rolled off your cheeks and grabbed your coat and bag that was on top of the piano. You proceeded to leave the music room.

You heard Mark call your name but you closed your eyes and shut the door on him. You told yourself over and over that it was for the better.

Once you exited the school you got on the bus at the nearest stop and chose a seat at the back of the bus. You felt your vision blur from the tears that were starting to build up once again but kept your head held high, everything will pass sooner or later. But after a short while you had started to bawl and saw students on the bus start to whisper and point at you. Memories you spent with Mark filled your head again, times when he brought lunch into the practice room, when the two of you would hang out after school, and many others. You weren’t the type of girl who had many friends and because of that, Mark meant so much more to you than you let on.

A student that sat at the next seat leaned over to pass you a tissue but before you could grab it. you heard screams erupt from the front of the bus followed by the swerve of the wheel and a rough crash.

When you opened your eyes you were still in your seat but you felt your head spinning from the impact of the crash. The police was called and the driver and passengers were sent to the nearest hospital for a full check-up. 

After the check-up they led you to a bed to rest as they went to contact your parents. You knew everything was fine, they said there was nothing wrong with you at all, and that you were just a bit shocked. But now that the chaos was over and you had time to think through what happened, it made you shake in fear. There could have been a chance for you to get seriously injured. You could only think about one person that you wanted by your side at this moment, and that was…


You heard Mark’s voice as he stood at the doorway of the ER unit, sweat falling down his face and an expression full of fear and worry.


You stood up as Mark ran over to you and pulled you into a tight hug, lifting you off your feet before letting you back down. 

He began panicking and blabbering almost immediately.

“I’m so sorry…I saw the crash on the news and ran here immediately. I should have stopped you right away when you left the room… I shouldn’t have said that about you, I was wrong, what if you can’t play piano again…I-”


He looked up at you with wide eyes as you cupped his cheeks gently with your hands.

“It’s okay, Mark. I’m fine. See?”

He held onto both your hands gently and after he took a moment to calm down he asked you a question quietly.

“But ________, were you scared?”

You smiled at him gently and caressed his face as he stared at you intently.

“I was…but you’re here now.”

No words were exchanged as he pulled you in close, holding you in his arms for a long time. It was clear that the two of you meant a lot to one another, and no amount of harsh words exchanged could change that fact.

my-paper-universe  asked:

Did Mark ever talk about the process of writing? I know he prefers working in the morning and that research is key, but has he ever spoken about the software he uses, how he starts and structures his stories, the way he builds characters or anything like that?

Hello! An interesting question. I can point to a few times he’s talked about writing, people have asked him in Q&As or there have been videos/bts where they show him in the process of writing something, but I don’t know if he’s gone into that level of detail in general interviews etc. I didn’t attend the writer’s masterclass event he did before Christmas, since it seemed to be aimed at students/people trying to get into the industry - that might be the sort of thing you’re looking for.

First off don’t know about software, but he’s a classic two-finger typist on a laptop (she says, identically tapping away in an inefficient manner):

(gif via sherlockundercover)

From what I’ve read he generally writes in his ‘garret’ as he calls it (room at the top of the house), unless it’s for Sherlock and Sue has banished him somewhere or he’s on holiday/away filming and still working anyway because workaholic. He’s said the bonus of being an actor and a writer is that when you’re stuck in a trailer waiting to be called for a scene, you can still get stuff done.

In terms of how he develops a story - bit sketchier there. Whenever he’s asked how he comes up with ideas, he says he thinks best in the bath! And he’s talked about going for a run if he’s stuck on something. As I recall he’s said writing scripts either comes very easily and it all just pours out, or it’s painfully slow and tortuous. Classic Mark quote: “I put arse to chair, pen to paper. And then I stare at a blank sheet until my forehead bleeds.” He doesn’t generally think writing is fun. But he’s always very positive about how anyone who wants to be a writer should just write - start, write anything, if you have a pen you can do it; “The key is to just write, carry on and see what happens.”

In terms of video and articles with more info I’d say his video diary from writing The Unquiet Dead is very interesting as you can see him changing aspects of the plot and characters as time moves on. And there are videos from the League of Gentlemen days where you see him writing with Jeremy Dyson, and sat together as a four talking the series through; so they’re going through jokes and generally rambling on about all sorts. You can download those here if you haven’t seen them. He did an interview with Great Gay Reads about writing the Lucifer Box books, that’s a good one too. And this video here is a nice chat about the second Lucifer Box book; how he developed the character and the challenges of the different genre. He’s talked a bit recently about writing with Steven on Sherlock, since they did TAB and TFP together - I get the impression he quite likes working with a writing partner, since that’s how he started in the League days. There’s a bit about that in the s.4 bts videos.

And he’s said if you can write a pornographic novel you can do anything since it’s so difficult.

This is Jurina’s (very) short interview from Uta-tube Rena grad special last year…I see…R got angry when J flirts with her HAHAHAHA

PS. I might do the quiz part (with Churi, Masana, Aya, Suda and Godou-chan), too.

EDIT! It was originally too long; I had to cut out some pieces here and there. Sorry about that! Hopefully it’s perfect this time.

Spoon had an interview with Gora back in July where Red, Black, Orange and Pink talked about the movie. You can download the scans here from weibo; take note there are two passwords.

I only summarised their answers because the interview was several pages long and I’m too lazy for a full translation. There are tonnes of spoilers for the movie so if you haven’t seen it turn around. Oh and I personally haven’t seen the movie either so please tell me if I made mistakes regarding some scenes etc.

I’m tired of being called deluded, rabid and insane. I’m really tired of this situation, of being umiliated again and again.

But you really know what that means?

It means that I’ll be tired of following your twitts, I’ll be tired of spending time making graphics and edits and gifs.

I’ll be tired of spending money on dvds and soundtracks, and I’ll be tired of buying apps which cost like a lunch. 

I’ll be tired of reading interviews and downloading photos, I’ll be tired of defending the actors and writers when they’re saying something not so right.

I’ll be tired of finding subtexts and rewatching the episodes and talking about them with other people.

I’ll be tired of thinking about the show, no, I’ll be very pissed off thinking about the show.

Oh, what are you saying, it was better when I was deluded and annoying and shipping two men?

Too late.


Dalton Rapattoni is one of the most outstanding people I have ever been able to meet. When you talk to him, he is kind, caring, genuine, funny, silly, intelligent, and more than what people see in interviews.

As Dalton has previously mentioned, he doesn’t give a rats ass about the “up sides” of fame. If he could make a living off of him playing small gigs with him and his guitar, he would. He would be content about his lifestyle. It’s rare, but it does happen when people just want to perform.

If Dalton were to be a type of “famous” or the type of people he could bring in, I would guess more of the All Time Low side. Their fans and people are so chill. People don’t mob them, don’t go screaming in their faces as if they are some sort of alien. All Time Low basically travels and plays their music.

In interviews before, he’s given us permission to illegally download music. I know some artists say the same thing, but most pop cookie cutter boy bands usually wouldn’t say a thing like that and try to profit. HOW CAN ONE NOT SAY THAT HE’S IN IT FOR THE MONEY? He was content in his other band too. It doesn’t matter to him. He just wants to be able to continue with his passion.

I don’t know if you guys recall, but there are times when interviewers ask them about the fans and if you look at him, he looks baffled that people would get so overwhelmed over guys who perform.

I don’t blame Dalton for wanting to leave, I wouldn’t put it pass him. He’s had girls who forcedly kissed him. People invade his privacy, try to figure out where he lives and other things! One no one should force another person into a kiss! ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW HIM!

I know Dalton signed up to be in a boy band. And the anon who messaged that: YES, BUT DO YOU KNOW HOW INVASIVE PEOPLE CAN GET. Today I literally heard these girls were going through this hotel to find this band, that they’ve been there for several days just to get a picture and meet them. They were disrupting others and the staff. People shouldn’t have to deal with that shit from people’s fans. It’s annoying not only for the fans, but the bands. It makes things uncomfortable.

Dalton knew what he was getting into yes, but did he want people whom he thought he could trust? NO! 

Also, this is more of my final note, stop over analyzing things about him. Like his URL, leave it alone. It is his blog and he could do whatever he wants with it. I know some people will agree, but he doesn’t tell you things about yours, so why must you question his?


On February 1st 2012 SBS ‘One night TV Entertainment’ broadcasted an interview of Yoon Do HyunJang HyukLee Min JungU-know Yunho, and Sohee who were all gathered for Good Downloader Campaign

On this day when asked what the first impressions of others were, Min Jung replied “I met everyone for the first time. Sohee in particular I always thought was cute and wanted to see her in person”. To which Sohee shyly replied “Me too”. 

Lee Min Jung asked her “I really think your face expression is cute. Can you please show us once?”, Sohee looked a little taken but quickly showed her famous face expression, making Lee Min Jung laugh.

anonymous asked:

baekhyun don't like exercise but he keep forcing himself to, i really don't like the fact that he is doing it for fans not for himself, i hope he will do what he want.

He said that he sometimes exercise to relieve stress.This was from an interview x  I can’t read deep in to his mind so I can’t conclude what he thinks, but I don’t think he hates it or were forcing himself to do it? 

And I don’t think he’s doing it only for fans? From the Pathcode teaser BTS it was around the time when he start he said that he started to exercise to prevent himself from being inactive and he won’t make himself too huge it will only to the extent that his form would look pretty when he wear clothes.

If you were to look up the definition of the word “home”, you would come across the description, “the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household”. When people talk of home, they bring up the house they grew up in, the family they shared that house with, or maybe they think of the four walls that make up the place where they sleep, the apartment they pay for that houses all of their shit. None of that has ever felt all that significant to me. And how do the people without that privilege describe “home”, or is the word just empty? Recently I’ve come to terms with the fact that a lot of people I know, myself included, can’t feel comfortable behind the walls that they have had to deem “home”.

 You can’t always feel vulnerable in the place that’s only there to give your material possessions a place to rest. You can’t always feel safe in the house that you spent your childhood in. You can’t always connect to homemade meals and a swing set in the backyard. Sometimes those memories are just empty. But does that leave you homeless? The answer is no. You learn to find home in other people, in other things. You learn to feel comfortable in other ways and in other places. That place for me is at a letlive. show. The men in this band are about as translucent as they can be, constantly responding to online messages from their fans, always hanging around long after the show has ended just to talk to whoever has waited around for them. 

What’s even more important than that is how open they let themselves be while on stage. Every emotion they feel at that moment is shown and shared with the crowd. There is nothing hidden. Vulnerability, weakness, and just flat out being emotional is not shamed, but accepted. What’s even more amazing is the crowd response, how the emotions are given right back to the band, how accepting every fan is of each other, and how easy it is to let yourself feel so intensely in such a public atmosphere. It was easy for me to find home in the men so willing to share their souls with the crowd that is there to see them, to find home in the people so dedicated and accepting of this band, and in the music that has become a safe haven for so many people. letlive. has given me a place to safely express my emotions, to move past my doubts and my fears and to embrace those struggles in order to move on from them and continue on in my life.

 It has introduced me to people that have become as close as family. letlive. has also has given me a glimpse of the person I want to be, and the person I’m allowed to be in those moments of intensity and understanding. This band has shown me what home truly is-inspiration, safety, comfort, acceptance, vulnerability, a place where I can truly show how I feel without the fear of judgment, a place I can turn to when the world is collapsing, a place to hide when I need a break. You can keep your four walls, the house you grew up in, the rented apartment where all of your stuff stays. I will continue to find home in everyone that makes up letlive., especially the ones willing to pour their hearts out because it is just as much their home as it is mine.

To add to what Bree is saying about finding a home in ll., as I said in the interview, seeing, listening and even being in the presence of letlive., the band, the fans and the music has given me a sense of self so to speak. It’s interesting to think that throughout my whole life, between all the people I’ve met or situation I’ve encountered, this music is what’s taught me the most, and has made me feel the most. 

I saw them live for the first time at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago a few years ago, and as soon as they started playing muther I got myself up on the corwd, got myself to the stage and gave him the biggest hug I could muster with my already exhausted body. Once back on the floor I couldn’t help but stand there, sing, and bawl my eyes out. Never have I ever been through such an emotional state in such a public setting, I knew it, and I didn’t care. 

 Although I haven’t had the pleasure of sitting down and having a lengthy conversation with all members, I know (and you should too) that the men in this band deserve all the fame, fans, support, and good vibes that they’ve been getting and much more. 

So if you havent already, take a moment of your time and listen to them, buy an album, download their discography, check out their instagram, facebook and tumblr, you most definitely will not regret it.

much ll.ove.
