That's interesting you did one in a stairway, because I read that when you were first doing your EP you were also doing it in stairways in Texas? Phillip and I actually both moved, and we found Jake [Tomsky] on drums and Randy [Miller] on bass, and the band solidified.How do you think the sound has changed for you and some of the songwriting has changed because now you have all of these people? I feel like I kind of found more of an identity on that first EP than I had before, and so I really kind of just wanted to follow that through and just refine that, so I think I got the general idea of what I was doing there, and now it's like going in slightly different directions with it. How did it feel putting them in this bigger body of work all together? That was what I was worried about because honestly, when I think of records, it's hard for me to think of records that are just flawless the whole way through, which is what we were aiming to get, that this would be like a perfect record. And also, we wanted the songs to be single-y, too, like bands where I love their singles, like The Smiths. But I think we got a cohesive thing and the songs do feel like singles at the same time. Do you think your feelings toward them, or the way you listen and view these songs, changes now, knowing that they're part of an album?OK, so you’re saying to me, “but you can always change how you look at life.” See, again, I’m going to have to say, give me a fucking break. —————————————————————————————————————————————— Natasha Tracy is an award-winning writer, speaker and consultant from the Pacific Northwest.
“When you start thinking, purpose is for me to orgasm,’ I’m like, ‘Thank you, God! But the goal of this distinctly conservative brand of “sex positivity” isn’t to defy the church or its doctrines — it’s to increase sexual intimacy by closely following the Bible’s teachings.While most churches have avoided preaching pleasure from the pulpit, point to a range of scripture, but in episode after episode they return to the Old Testament’s Song of Solomon, which they say holds answers on everything from oral sex to bikini waxes. If gifts mean a lot to your mate, you’d better have a plan or be working on one right now. (And if you can’t, read this post.) Tell your sweetheart that you find him handsome, sexy, desirable, and overall your brand of catnip, so to speak.But it's pretty similar, the LP, I think, to what the first EP was. Because it's different having a single song and releasing it as opposed to having it be —Part of the album? Yeah, I think it does do that, versus something like, we did "Affection" and a cover of "Keep On Lovin' You" and those songs feel different to me because they're kind of isolated in a little chunk versus the LP stuff.It does feel like that, though, that these are part of a collection.
