I hear you have a yoga practice? Are you a yogi?


Well, see, I don’t like the word “yogi.” I’m really such an idiot about it. I have a DVD that I play on a little DVD player in the corner, so I can watch a little bit. I’ve been doing it, I think, three years. So I don’t need to watch as much. It’s just a routine, and I do it immediately when I wake up. Just in my house, I don’t go anywhere. I just wake up, go do my thing. Sometimes 35, 40 minutes. If I’m lucky, I can do it every day and get that stretch and that release of energy... But I would remind you that I’m 50 years old. So for me, if I don’t do yoga, and if I go out there and I hurt my leg or something, I’m just going to feel like an idiot. I’m doing it to prevent any of that, because I want to be active.


I want to run and do


crazy shit. {laughing}


I see guys that are older and they get their leg hurt and they’re like, “Well, I hurt my leg. Now I can’t walk.” And you’re like “Well, f**k man.” So for me, it keeps all that away...


The idea of yoga is discipline. You dedicate yourself and the results blossom over time. The things that you think are happening the first month that you do it [are] way different than the things that are happening to you a few years later… I think that’s mostly what I’ve seen from it, that it shows you the way.


But you have to do it. Doing it is the key. Because yoga would not work if you didn’t do it. You can’t read about it and benefit. You can’t watch a movie and get the benefits, and talk about it with your friends and get any of the benefits.


Because a lot of times people, especially with art and music and concepts, they will spend hours talking about it. Spend years thinking about it. F**king forever doing research about it. But you have to do it. Whatever it is that you think you want to research, or think, or talk about, you have to do it.


I think in a sense I know that. I don’t just do yoga, I tap into yoga. Once you do it, it shows you things you can’t read about, or watch about, or think about, or talk about. That’s my philosophy.

Wow, I’m loving you more & more. I thought there was already a lot of love to begin with.


Oh goodness. Ok, here we go. We have the Origin Series of questions that we’re gonna run through.


Why do you wake up in the morning? What’s that thing that you’re most passionate about? What’s that thing that makes you even want to get up?


Ooooh.


Let’s jump right in. {laughing}


Yeah, for me, I think it’s the moment, the panic that my life is running out. When I was younger, I didn’t jump out of bed. I loved to sleep. When you’re younger, everything is a joy. You like to eat, you like to f**k, you like to sleep. You like to do everything. But when you get older, you realize it’s a trade off. So for me, it’s this idea that I still feel like I’m learning and I’m living. I’m experiencing. I guess it would be that I want to spend time with the people that I love and with my animals.


{laughing}


It’s not the sadistic bullshit. When you’re an artist, you wake up and you’re like, “I want to go do this thing.” It’s like f**king masturbating.
