With vinyl you had twenty-two minutes per side. CDs came along, and you had sixty, seventy, eighty minutes and people felt like they had to fill them up. They were like those Fuji apples from Japan. They look like perfect, super-gigantic versions of American apples.
We've turned down multi million dollar films, simply because we liked the film better. We have the luxury to do so - we have projects that make the money, and others that we do for love.
Rebellion is obsolete - change things from the inside working out. Mark Mothersbaug
As far as the style, I was fascinated by surrealism. Mark Mothersbaug
This is the fourth movie that I've done with this set of director-writers and I've learned to trust them at this point, because actually I started on Lego before they did.
If you're in music just to become a big, fat rock star, then I probably don't like your music to begin with.
With MTV in the '80s, you made your album but then you needed to use any money you made to create a video - instead of being able to use that money to pay for you and your band to live on while you wrote new songs. So MTV upped the ante of looking for one hit. Conceptual bands who didn't have a hit
Will Arnett and I were never in the same room, but once I saw early animation we started writing music for that and then he just kind of did his little rap over top, some of it was free form and some of it I made up, we all just kind of contributed to it.
I write all the time. I do artwork that's part of a diary, and I write short stories to go with them pretty much every day.
If you get rid of a lot of the poseurs by destroying record companies, maybe it's a good trade-off.
I don't cook - I can cook - but I'm not very good. I like being asked over for dinner, because she can't cook either. We would starve if it weren't for modern technology. I know how to work a microwave, but love home cooked meals.
I think somewhere around high school, your brain starts to gel, to harden. Before that, thereâ€™s this time where anything is possible and the more things that you artistically and educationally have in your repertoire, the more you become a child of larger possibilities.
I always loved fish-eye lenses. It came from how radical my [eyeglass] prescription was. It wasnt until someone dropped LSD on me back in the early 70s that, all of a sudden, I realized again what my prescription did to my vision. I was always looking into these extreme-convex lenses my whole life.
I really appreciate anyone trying to inject art into mainstream film. Mark Mothersb

Right now I just finished writing the music for a Rugrats feature film and the third week of September I go to London, and the Orchestra is going to perform the score.

Personally Im very happy to be behind the scenes. I like collaboration, I like working with directors.
When I was a kid, I would go to the record store, where there was a bin of things they didn't know quite how to classify. Those were my choices. That's where you would find Captain Beefheart or an early electronic album.
To me I think artists in general make a statement - and for the rest of their lives - every album, every book - are variations on a theme.
Mutants have always been dear to the heart of Devo. One of our earliest influences was the original Island of Lost Souls , ... The whole thing was frightening and unnatural and disturbing.

Before MTV, if you put out an album that sold 50,000 copies, your band could afford not to have day jobs for a while. That meant you could stick around, put out another album or two. Maybe it would be the second or third album where you'd make the statement you'd been trying to make all along.
Technology has taken its toll on albums in a tough way. The CD format and MTV really played havoc on artists.
I really appreciate anyone trying to inject art into mainstream film.
What makes games so exciting is that's a whole other- there's all sorts of other considerations on what music is supposed to achieve and what you're attempting to support, it's not uncommon to think of your music and to think of the way your orchestra plays for something like Jack and Daxter where y
My major was Fine Arts and Education thinking I would become an Art Teacher. I couldn't visualize myself as an art teacher, thinking how it wouldn't work.
When I was a kid, the book that I liked the most was 'Aesop's Fables.' There was a version of it that my father read stories to us kids out of. I liked the idea of the short story format.
