Thanks for listening. Gotta admit I laughed out loud at the image of someone listening to holo pleasures then “finishing” forest gump.

Anonymous said: so stoked for new alhambra. do you think y'll release any other demos or outtakes from the album in the future, or do you think that would ruin the whole "album as a whole" thing? the n.m.s.s. demo just has this really intimate feel that puts it in a different place than the full version.
the demo was a toss off. i put no intimacy into it.
there will be no demos.
there will be a video soon though.

Anonymous said: you should definitely keep posting demos and new stuff you are working on, if you are comfortable with doing so. my friends and I really enjoyed hearing the new coma as well as the old one too! much love
demos reveal too much usually, but if they stand alone well enough i’m down.

Anonymous said: I hear people say "Deh-PREST-lee," which makes the Presley pun clearest, but I think "Deh-PRESS-id-lee" is more linguistically correct. Which do you use?
if you don’t say it in a way that makes it clear it’s a play on elvis presley you’re saying it wrong.
this seems like it’d be obvious.

Anonymous said: could you tell me what the term "thinning out" means? its such a beautiful song and i've always wondered, thanks for making such great music!
It’s like when something is pulled in all directions it becomes bigger but less defined and while it’s more visible it lacks the strength it had at the start.
in that song the idea was that my relationship with my friend justin was being pulled far in different directions as he moved to another country, and though it still existed it had been stretched to the point where it wasn’t as strong as it used to be.
I just missed him very badly. Now he’s home and i see him more often and I am grateful for that.
