I was lucky enough to get to perform on stage in front of 20 million people on TV, and 150 thousand in concerts. For 15 minutes I got to be a rock star, the 15 minutes is great! It turns into Spinal Tap after 20 minutes.
Rushmore: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
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
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.
Technology has taken its toll on albums in a tough way. The CD format and MTV really played havoc on artists.

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.

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.
The stories I write are often literal to events that have happened or observations that I've made, and sometimes they're fantastical.
I really appreciate anyone trying to inject art into mainstream film.
If you're in music just to become a big, fat rock star, then I probably don't like your music to begin with.

Personally Im very happy to be behind the scenes. I like collaboration, I like working with directors.
Lego was our fourth film, because we did two Cloudys, so yeah there's a little bit of shorthand that's involved and then you can anticipate things- because for me it's like, I get a script for a movie and I go, "Wow that's a pretty good script", then you sign on and a couple months later they show y
I've worked with a lot of directors, some of them you wouldn't really attach the word 'artist' to their name.
I went to Kent State basically to avoid going to Vietnam, I had no idea what I was doing in the world. I was lost, and trying not to get into a fight every day.
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.
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.
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
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.

The Sims 2 Nightlife
To Kill a Mockingbird' represents Hollywood at its very finest, when a popular film could truly contain a message. It has one of the most moving scores of all time.
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.
My favorite films, I would put my answering machine up to the television set and hit record. I'd tape my favorite movies and then I could go back and listen to them again. I only had the soundtrack, I didn't have the visuals. But I think it made me really pay attention to the soundtracks.
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.
