Yannis: (Laughs) It can make things awkward. Often, I do find that my lyrics tend to be quite melancholic. No matter how I really feel, what I end up writing will always turn out a bit on the down side, for some reason. So, it does get quite awkward when the people you wrote songs about find out that they are about them. But then again, you know, that’s kind of your job, isn’t it, when you’re making music or any form of art? I think that the irony of being detached from what you make is something that is quite common nowadays. I believe that there should be some sincerity to it. There should be honesty in your work. I have always liked reading, listening, and watching things that are honest, in which there are a lot of emotions, that they are direct about them, and there is no bullshit in relaying those feelings… something that’s deeper than what the irony is about.
So like the video I made last night for our project here in Sweden was selected as best documentary of all projects! WOOOP. I am suddenly overloaded with compliments.
Anyway, now the fieldwork is done in Sweden! The next five days are the easter holiday break…. so now up to Göteborg and Stockholm…. really curious and excited! Heard so many good experiences about these two cities! I have a feeling I will miss Sweden when returning to Portugal next Tuesday. I need to come back as soon as possible (and preferably see The Hives here in concert… adjlsqjdlkqjdlksq)…
it takes me like 3 days to wake up in the morning
