In all the tawdry shenanigans that went on during the almost 6 hour Q&A last night, there was a period that i’d like to quickly address before we move on and destroy all tapes and evidence. (right? RIGHT?? I’m fairly positive we all agreed to that).
A number of people offered very emotional, personal testimonies, most of which i wasnt able to address and respond directly to. I mean, what s there to say? Well, here’s what there is to say.
I heard you, and you may think you love me, but i love you too. In a few weeks, after. firs finish the little EP (estimate, 2 weeks) and directly following that make the NADS Theme Song (estimate, 1 week), i will hunker down get to proper work on the 3rd Act. In the months, in the better part of a year it takes me to make these, i spend much of it working alone in a basement wondering who it is that will actually listen it, what they will think, will i move them, and who they are. I wonder this constantly throughout the process. I make it for imaginery people i will never meet.
But i now i know who i’m making it for. I’m making it for you. It is you who will be in my thoughts during those long months. It is you i will think of in the moments when i need encouragement. It is you i will think of when i pour parts of me that hurt into it and wonder if anyone else will hurt like i do and find solace in the release of the music and the singing and the story. I really heard your tears and your testimonies and know that it is you i will be holding in my heart as i make this next big project.
The next character i emotionally torture, i will torture for you. (Helen: Wft, dude? How about we just exit the doorway and find a nice cup of tea waiting for us? )
