nothing much

here's some of what i had saved in notepad files:

"I don’t compare my past bands or listen to anything I play on once it’s released. The key for me is to stay moving forward, raising the bar just slightly beyond what’s familiar. I hate nostalgia and everyone’s sentimental approach to music, as if we should all be part of this clear-cut lineage that’s forever sculpting culture. Bands usually put everything they got into their first releases to prove something, but their process invariably becomes corrupted—not by lack of creativity, but by the poisoning of public opinion: either by external pressure to recapture past glories or by catering to whatever standard of approval rules at the moment. Of course all this is natural. I see corruption and death as nothing but steps in a life cycle, a filtration process necessary to the turning over of new ideas.

One huge problem with art lies with the extent of artists who need to connect with an audience. What I’m talking about is a relationship with art. The success of this relationship seems to rely on a certain limitation of public interaction. It’s not absurd to regard art as a coded outcry to be loved properly; therefore when you start giving it away it invariably dilutes in an almost alchemical sense. This pervading sort of pathetic hopefulness—the idea of wowing people, is corrupt from the start. I find it disgustingly vain and needy. So to undercut all that it’s been my method of obsessively questioning the purity of an expression and accepting its expiration date so I’m only left with the inception of the idea when it’s most exciting. I realize that some of the truth behind this is that I can’t endure defeat gracefully, so I act fast and take what I can. Achievements mean little; any enjoyment I’m lucky enough to scrape up usually just gets buried in the process anyway." - Mark McCoy

"I don't know if the word 'gentrification' exists in English, but it's what happening now... it's a low and vicious process with good purposes on paper, but it destroys everything that makes a city creative and authentic." - Daitro
