Arguably, the best interview ever! (JJ)


JJ is a band from Sweden that have worked with Ne-Yo in the past. I guess they'd meet the criteria of being called "dreampop."

This is a slightly outdated Scandinavian week post, BTW.

Anyway, I emailed them with several (rather stupid) questions. The responses? CLASSIC.

enjoy, what is probably the best interview I have ever done. Thanks, JJ! 

How are you guys doing? How is Sweden?

e - It's raining today, trying to make the pain go away. I feel life. This is life. Heartbreaking.
So much love, sometimes too much love for my human heart to handle.
I feel that I really fucked everything up today. I'm angry over all my mistakes.
But no time for regrets.

“The darker the night, the brighter the stars,
The deeper the grief, the closer is God!”

I have problems respecting myself. Takes time to feel all sorrow,
to understand how and why mankind told my brain to feel something
that was so far away from my heart.
I pay respect to life. I love life!

I don't know shit about Sweden, just a name. Burn all flags and get real. 

Any big plans for the year?

e - It's 2012, if someone doesn't expect something big from this year should stop and breath for a sec...
We're going to finish our record V, and release our single n°4, it's a bigger plan than big bang in my head.
So yes, big plans for me baby!   

How do you pick who to collaborate with? (as you've worked with NE-YO among others in the past)

e - I don't know who "picked" who with the collab. with mr NE-YO. I guess things are just meant to be. 

Who do you dream of collaborating with?

e - oh... So many that my head starts to burn when I think about that. To make music with inspiring spirits is a big part of my dream.   

Do you think the world will end this year? 

Earth is giving birth.
There's no end. Sometimes I get angry over that. Sometimes I just want it all to end.
That is why we have to respect and take responsibility for what we do and think. So fucking hard.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
