"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"There’s something bizarre about people doing active things if they don’t have heads—a kind of gallows humor, a joke about the French Revolution when the aristocracy had their heads guillotined. It’s also a device that manages to make the pieces post-racial."
