Well, you’re talking about big things. The meaning of the life, or the lack of meaning. It’s fairly deep, and I was just wondering what draws you to that?
Well, I wouldn't know what else to talk about. I do talk about big stuff, if you like, or abstract stuff, but I try not to talk about them in an abstract way. I try to make what's ethereal or nebulous, real and palpable. That was one thing I definitely do want to achieve. What I want to do a lot of the time is — when you're talking to your friends, you're having coffee or a drink or something, and you saying to one another, "Well, you know he was a little bit, you know, like, he was just, you know what I'm, you know he was a bit weird, you know." I want to take that section, “he was a little bit, you know…" and I want to just use that, and actually translate it into something more definite, more comprehensible. These strange feelings that blow through you like wind from somewhere very far away. You know, I want to die all of a sudden [laughs] or I'm suddenly elated to be alive. Where do these come from?
