Do you worry about the heat death of the universe?
A bit. The overall goal of this whole music thing is for someone to discover my music through a windows movie maker lyric video with the white text on the dark blue background somewhere 50 years in the future. That’s the 2066 version of finding a dope record in the dollar bin at ur local oxfam 4 me.
What defines consciousness? Do you think other animals can be considered conscious creatures?
I just define consciousness as the literal term of the ability to be alive, physically aware and responsive. I think if everyone did that then communication between medical professionals and j-cole fans would be a lot more understandable.
Are you afraid that everything will happen?
Naw not rly although I do take it 4 granted that I’m around in a time where there’s still some stuff that needs doin. I will probably always give merit to anyone tryna do something new but I also have some respect for those that can study something and imitate well in a creative way. I think I read a cure for art-block to steal from 5 of ur favourite artists and try and make something as if they were all working on it. I do that sometimes. Hopefully 1 day someone will be able to study me and imitate me in a smarter way and do a good job, and this fuckin weird interview lol.
“I think, therefore I am” or “I am, therefore I think”?
I don’t think I am anything yet until I can feel good about contributing something cool to the planet earth but I’m slowly working on it. In an ideal world it will be something that I made in my bedroom on a strict diet of crisp sarnies and coke. If I had to chose tho I would probably choose “I am, therefore I think” because I don’t like putting myself above anything that can’t think. Don’t think anything I said made any sense tho so it’s whateva.
What do you think about this poem by Paul Celan (below)
This poem really annoys me on a visual level as it’s not pushing the world of visual poetry forward. I only invest my time into poems that are in the shape of an 8-pointed star or better yet you can combine the first letter of each line to form a word!! My eyeballs ache within my skull as they are definitely above the average volume of eyeball so I can relate in that matter. Not really sure what the rest of it means because I still buy savers beans and I’ve never read The Quietus.
