Anonymous asked: Where does the quote on Out of Here come from? I can't find anything about Mae Kaufman or The Trouble With Glory anywhere on the interwebs.
That. That is a good question. I hadn’t thought far enough ahead about whether I might actually get asked by people, but it’s a fake quote. I mean it’s real (obviously) because you can read it, but there is no The Trouble With Glory or Mae Kaufman (well, there might be, but I made this one up). So I wrote it. I had thought for a while about what I’d want to use as album art, and I’m not any good at drawing or painting or photography or anything visually artistic like that, but I figured that I seem to be pretending I can do the words at the moment, so I thought that might be the answer. I thought about some of the stuff that had been written about in the songs and did a weird backwards thing where I wrote a fake quote as though the songs had been influenced by this passage as opposed to the other way around. But then when I was writing one of the songs that ended up being a bonus track a further weird thing happened where the fake quote ended up influencing it. To summarise, it was weird.
