nah that’s lost and gone forever
I’m going to assume time means two years and say yes.
You want to know something interesting? Two suburbs around Indianapolis, one to the northeast called Zionsville and one to the southeast called New Palestine.
wellllll! hostile, huh? to be clear here are times we give bullshit answers: when we are tired of answering it, when we don’t know how to answer it, when we get bullshit questions.
Talking to and meeting Max for the first time was wild. Being in a band is strange. Being an artist is strange. Managing your art is strange. Being a person is strange. It is a real validating feeling having an established songwriter acknowledge your work so it was cool when he reached out to us. We felt a little skeptical for a bit just because he had wanted to work with us so you end up having to put yer business hat on and not get caught up in it and make a smart move. Also like, the position we were in: having a new record out with some buzzz, we had like annnooyyying amounts of people hitting us up about trying to work with us in some way, we started feeling this weird mix of self-consciousness and skepticism of “have they reaaaaally connected with the record? is it reaaaaaally something they feel passionately about?” Because all those people’s jobs are in a sense finding bands that they think can validate their work. Without being rude, those people’s are paid by involving themselves with people that will be making some money. And as the person who makes that work, you want to involve people if they have the same vision as you and ~~*believe in your work*~~ and not just because they are making career moves, you know? But like, he actually came of as really genuine. He picked up on things I wished more people would pick up on and talked about how it relates to his world views and such. Idk he just seemed emotionally invested in the album. I’d like to get to know him more. I don’t really get off on casual acquaintances. I’m not really a Say Anything fan but he is pretty clearly a genius. yeah idk. That’s all I have to say about that.
