He didn’t get as set off as I wanted, but I enjoyed this.
Did you hear Arcade Fire’s new album?
I haven’t heard it. Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own asshole. This is not the Seventies, okay? Go and ask Billy Corgan about a double album. Who has the fucking time, in 2013, to sit through 45 minutes of a single album? How arrogant are these people to think that you’ve got an hour and a half to listen to a fucking record?
You know Bowie sings backup on one of Arcade Fire’s new songs, right?
Oh, that’s a shame.

Observation is very important to me. I don’t see myself having much to do with fantasy, but I do have a fascination for the unseen. When I see something that interests me, I try to understand why I like that particular thing. Is it the color, form, shape, composition, texture, etc? Design uses different languages to speak (semiotics is one of them), so it is essential to me that I understand how to say things visually. A lot of my process is figuring out how to speak visually through a solution.
