I like Cronenberg's early work; his '80s films had all these weird, amorphous flesh objects in them. ---->>>

I like pop music. Earnestly. Most of the greatest technicians, mix engineers, and players are working in pop music. ---->>>

I'd rather proliferate funny little rumors than not. ---->>>

I've always loved singing and the catharsis of it. ---->>>

My mom is the type of mom who wonders why I haven't used my psychology degree to become a successful clinical psychologist. ---->>>

I'm not good at interacting with people and am terrified to get onstage, so I just go up there, freak out and, most of the time, pack up and go home immediately after. ---->>>

In high school, I decided I wanted to learn guitar, so I picked it up and starting teaching myself some basic chords and started playing with friends. Guitar inherently lends itself to be guitar music, especially when you're not good at guitar. ---->>>

When I released my first record, I was really in the middle of having made the decision to follow the clinical psychology path, which is competitive, rigorous, and fairly conservative. ---->>>

Afterlife, in my mind, is pretty much nothing. This is it. This is what we get, for me. ---->>>

I always thought I was depressive, and I only recently realized that I have more of an anxiety disorder than chronic depression. ---->>>

I definitely have a little Woody Allen inside of me. That is true. ---->>>

I feel like since I was 27, I was calling myself 30. And then, when it happened, it was like, 'I'm finally here now. This is it. ---->>>

I started singing the second I could utter sound. ---->>>

I wanted to make a record that worked against the hypnagogic paradigm, for sure. ---->>>

There were no good bands in my town. You know, there's like this magic town where every kid started a band in high school, and half of them were good and have careers based on relationships built at that time? That wasn't what my life was like at all. ---->>>

There's a certain type of indie fan who would balk at the prospect of there being value in pop music, but I think that's foolish. They're not really listening. ---->>>

When I was twelve or thirteen, if you liked something that was outside of your friend group genre, you had to rationalize and explain it in some way. It's totally irrelevant, I think, now. I don't think anybody cares. Not young people, at least. Maybe journalists. ---->>>
