How bout this heat, huh? As a sweaty person, this has been a shut in type of week where I only leave the house to eat or go directly to a place with superior air conditioning. As i type this, my brow is glistening from the brisk movement of my fingers.
Anyway, if you have more questions, send them my way: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave them in the comments below. As always, keep them interesting. I’m starting to just skip over lame ones. It’s felt good.
This week questions are pretty fucked up. One dude in particular is a big fan of making me do horrible things in dire situations. Thanks, bro.
You seem to wear a lot of baseball caps. What’s your opinion on babes wearing baseball caps? If you agree that attractive women should be banned from wearing them outside of sporting events (playing or spectating), which surely you must, what should men give up in exchange?
I’d rather tell you my opinion on dudes who use the word “Babes”.
I actually don’t have a problem with girls throwing on the occasional baseball hat. It doesn’t bother me. I liken it to girls shaving their heads or getting strange facial pierces. If they’re hot, they’re hot. A hot girl is not all of a sudden unattractive cause she has a hat on. That said, in all three situations, said hot girl would be way hotter without the shaved head, facial pierces and baseball hats. But it’s not ruining anything for me. i’ve never been the type who gets turned off by certain clothing or styles. Sure, i may judge them and think they’re corny but it doesn’t make them somehow ugly. More just a diamond in the rough.
You wake up and your girl has been kidnapped by some crazed lunatic who has left a note that says: “Come to the bronx zoo.” You go to the zoo and eventually find the guy with your girl. He’s got her suspended over a pit full of hungry lions. In order to get her down, you have to fuck either: a) a Nile Crocodile (they’re fucking huge and mean), b) A male elephant in must (super-angry mating time), or c) a Green Anaconda. Would you let your girl die or fuck one of the ferocious beasts? If you choose beast, please explain tactics to seal the deal.
You diabolical dickhead. Do snakes even have pussies? OR do you do anal on a snake?
There’s the thing, I feel like there’s no way I’d survive having sex with any of these animals, let alone be able to sustain erection during the process. This is one of those no win situations. Obviously, I’m not gonna let my girl die but this one is like that thing where you see your boy getting jumped by 10 dudes and , while you could help, it’s basically just you walking into a beatdown for no reason other than to keep up appearances. It’s the “right” thing to do, but it’s also a total death wish. So, in this situation, you’re pretty much asking me how I’d like to die…and who’s to say this crazy person is even going to let my girl live once I’ve been mauled to death by one of these three animals?
That said, i’d fuck the shit out of that snake, bro.
How do you feel about becoming a minor league FaceBook star overnight? It will give a lot more attention to your internet persona.
Ah yes…For those who don’t know, there was a fake facebook music page for me for years. It had over 13,000 followers and was totally worthless. I tried contacting the dude who made it but he never responded , so I made my own “The Real Blockhead“. Anyway, that page was getting minimal love for a long time (even though I was pretty active on it, the other page with more “Likes” kept getting more followers) then the dude who made the fake page finally contacted me. He posted a bunch of messages linking people to my actual page and eventually erased his page. Then, somehow, Facebook consolidated all the fake music pages for me into my “The real blockhead” page. I went from have about 2,000 followers to about 23,000 over the course of one day. This was totally awesome…until I realized that some of those followers were not feeling my updates. My twitter feed posts on my facebook wall and people who were only there cause they liked “Music by cavelight” 8 years ago were all of a sudden being bombarded with jokes. I got TONS of unfollows and a few “I’m a fan and I don’t appreciate your posts blah blah blah” type posts on my wall. It was awesome. I had forgotten how serious people take their social networks. Like the idea that a tweet (which is a quickly passing brain fart) can somehow effect their day negatively. Anyway, I wrote a post telling people it was alright to “unlike” me or whatever as I realized my facebook stylings are not for everyone. Since then, things have improved and I feel that, for the most part, my facebook fans and I are on the same page.
So, to answer the question, it was both great and depressing. Awesome that I was able to connect with that many more fans (which will definitely help in promoting my music to a much larger audience) but depressing that some of my fans are such humorless dickheads.
It’s been a month or two now and it seems to have evened out but , admittedly, I still do kinda watch what I say on my facebook page more than I would have before. Which is too bad…but necessary.
Deltron 3030 is finally putting out the follow up on July 21st. Do you give a shit?
I find anytime an artist does a sequel to an album that was heavily praised like 10 years after the fact, it’s usually done to appease fans and/or cause they’ve run out of ideas. It’s kinda like when people ask me “When are you gonna make another “music by cavelight”?” (worst question to ask an artist, ever, btw). Attempting to recapture something that’s long since passed never really pans out. It’s pandering that goes against your natural progression as an artist. I don’t doubt Del has another good album in him but I’m pretty sure this won’t be it. The Automater is dope as fuck though so, if he’s involved (which I doubt), it does have a chance.
what is the most RANDOM turn off you have about chicks when you (did) start talking to them initially? Example: When chicks are into horses is a huge turn off for me.
Oh man…that’s a long list. There are certain things girls will say or do within a conversation with me where I would just check out. Granted, in my single days, that wouldn’t stop me from having sex with them but it definitely would put a cap on how far that particular relationship would go. They’re not that random but being deeply religious and loving cats too much are two that would send me running for the hills. but beyond those obvious ones, subtle clues of their taste would be a huge turn off. Like if I was talking to a girl and she was praising how great a movie “Party Monster”, I would immediately know I cannot hang with her. On a physical level, I’m totally turned off but girls with strong underbites. Dunno why…it’s just not my thing.
would you rather (which btw I don’t know why you don’t have a would you rather segment on this blog) eat pork rinds and rice krispies and only allowed to have orange soda for two weeks straight OR eat Precious’s pussy for 5 minutes? regardless of her getting off, 5 minutes hit and you’re done. thoughts?
I think i’d go with the pork rinds and rice cripsies. I dunno if my body would ever recover from that but it’s a far lesser punishment than waking up from night terrors for the rest of my life from laying eyes on Precious’s vagina.
One day you (and many others) wake up and have contracted some sort of disease where you can’t eat the meat of any animal ever again, aside from human meat. You don’t have the bloodlust to kill humans to get the meat, but there is a new butcher shop for people with your disease where you can go purchase human meat from people who have recently died. The meat is from healthy, non-sick people and is perfectly fine to eat. Many other people have this disease, so you will not be publicly shunned by the general public. The general non-diseased population is very understanding. You going vegetarian for life or eating peeps, bruh?
It really depends how the human meat tastes. But, in reality, I could very easily live life as a vegetarian (I’d much rather eat meat but , in this situation, you’d just kinda accept it and move on). However, if the choice was being vegan or eating the human jerky…that’s different. I need my dairy. I love cheese enough that I’d probably be willing to eat a dead guy steak every now and then. Especially considering that there would be no social stigma to it. If it was readily available…and I allowed me to eat other foods I love, sure.
If it was some back alley black market dead human meats being purchased out of the back of a truck? I’d pass. Partially cause that sounds gross but more so cause I’m simply too lazy to go that far out of my way to buy meat.
As a musician, how often do you look back at something that you’ve released and wish that you could go back and make changes to it?
Very Rarely. I mean, I definitely can listen to some shit I did 8 years ago and think “man, I wish I could change those drums” but , in general, I’m not the type to really question my choices. For better or for worse. I think, as a beatmaker, you’re aware of the short comings of everything you release. You know the parts that weren’t 100% how you wanted them to be. But, at some point, you just moved on cause it was time. I’ve got a few of those here and there but nothing that bothers me that much. And, honestly, Im pretty sure I’m the only one who would notice.
