Neil and I recorded a series of Q+A videos while making NMK III, our third studio album. I finally got around to editing them! So here’s episode one:

i watched a movie called “About Time” yesterday. it’s about a boy who can time travel within his own life. very simple premise. very charming film. the theme, or last bit of advice the father gives is this: live each day twice. once through normally, with all the stress and pain and annoyances of the day. then live the same day again, changing nothing. this time you aren’t stressed because you know the outcome. you aren’t annoyed because you can concentrate on life’s details, since you already know how the day will end.
for me this idea, kind of like watching a movie twice, is exciting. the first time i see a film, i bring all my expectations to it. and i am disappointed, usually. but the second time i watch it, i almost always enjoy it more. free of the pressure of forcing my expectations on it. i notice more little details. the richness of the thing.
i want to live life like this the first time through.
