I just keep re-reading the email in my head...
FILLER?! “sorry to be so honest” SORRY NOTHING! YOU OBVIOUSLY MEANT TO OFFEND IF YOU’RE APOLOGIZING! AND YOU REPLACED INTERESTING SONGS WITH JAZZ! That’s just insulting. I love jazz, but the majority of people at the fair I’m sure dont want to stand around and snap their fingers while smoking pitch pipes and wearing sunglasses during the late afternoon. If we were...

Press: As you each grow older and wiser, how do you both stay loyal to and inspired to produce the style of music on both the record and in concert that your most loyal and long-term fans both love and expect?
Brandon Boyd: You made me think of something though when you were saying like, um, will you be screaming some of your most demanding lyrics when you’re 70. You can’t really imagine yourself doing that. I agree with you, we have so many songs that we wrote when we were in our young twenties. Some of them we wrote when we were teenagers and we still perform some of them. It occurs to me now at 36, damn, what was I thinking? This is hard! I have to really concentrate and sit still in order to do it. Two things occur to me. One was that somehow the guys in the Stones still look really cool doing it. And I think that really is a testament to number one, their talent, as well as their tenacity. If you write good songs and if you write songs that have a potentially timeless quality, yeah I think that you’ll be able to sing them long into your sunset years. I think that’s really one of our intentions as a band. I know for me as a lyricist and as a singer, my deepest intention beyond just trying to express myself with a sense of purity is to hopefully achieve a sense of timelessness. You want to touch on subjects that are potentially universal. And that don’t really need to be tied to the 90s. Or the 2000s. Or the 2030s. Whatever. You want to essentially be able to make music that will essentially transcend time. The other thing that occurred to me when you said that, Chester, and imagining, knowing myself from experience as well, there are certain songs that get harder as you get older. The term vaginaplasty came to mind, and if they can do that with technology, by the time you and I are in our 60s, why can’t they do laryngioplasty, where they can give us a 16-year-old’s throat? Can you imagine, being all leathery?
I know a river in Ohio that we can go to and go camping and jump off of a rope...– Brandon Boyd (via zzbrandonboyd)
Press: Brandon first, you mentioned as this being the end of the Incubus cycle. What’s next? You made us wait awhile for this last album. What are you guys planning?
Brandon Boyd: As far as that’s concerned, we have no plans, to tell you the truth at the moment. We are, for the first time since 1996, we are free agents again. We’re without a record label. So what we’re kind of doing is trying to get our bearings as to what we should do next, just as a band but also as a band that is kind of off in new territory again. So I have been tinkering around potentially with a second solo record. That’s probably the most likely scenario. But as far as Incubus right now, we’ll probably take another break. Hopefully it won’t be as long. But what we like to do is arrive with the best of intentions and try and create music from a sense of urgency as well as purity and not necessarily based on a schedule. I know that that can be a little bit frustrating for our listeners and stuff. But I think that we’ll make better music as a result. So the plan is to have no plan.
friend: you should've come with us!
me: an invitation might have helped
You know what made this day even more depressing?
Brandon Boyd may still be on the east coast and I just don’t care enough today to even try begging my parents on an adventure to go find him, regardless of the fact I know they would say no. How could I not care? All that advice i usually give myself that helps me stay happy would really help right now. The problem is once I can’t fight being upset anymore, I forget all of it and...

Who wants ME to write something in THEIR ask box? :o
Sometimes I realize I have less true friends than fingers on one hand,which makes me feel lonely, but the bright side is it makes me appreciate my family a whole lot more because I’m lucky enough to have one that’s always with me, whether I like it or not.
Daughter: "Mom, I love this band --"
