This is from an interview conducted back in March, 2008:
You just released that whole Modlife thing online a little while ago. What’s the story behind that and how has it been going so far?
Modlife is amazing. It’s blown my mind. It’s an idea I had that took a lot to come to fruition, and we’re going to launch it to the world this summer. It’s an operating system to help kind of revolutionize the music industry at first, but at best it’s for anybody. Any kid, any band, any business or housewife to use a bunch of digital tools in any way, shape or form they choose to use them. For a band, they can do broadcasts, films and podcasts, deliver their records digitally – everything they want to do on a computer. For a housewife, maybe they just want to put up photos of their kids and they don’t have any records and maybe it’s free. I don’t know, but it’s probably the most futuristic, ingenious thing I’ve seen on the Internet since its inception, I think. I’m really excited about it.
The trend now is kind of leaning less towards labels and more towards other avenues.
Yeah, label’s are kind of a thing of the past.
Do you think this is going to team up with that?
Yeah, I think there’s a lot of things that are going to happen, but our goal is to be self-sufficient. To not need labels, not need other people, or be able to hire labels for specific duties, like marketing and promotion. But I think with Modlife, we’ll be able to do it all ourselves.
And now that project is coming true!

Have you ever woken up one day just to see a poster on your wall that you had always thought it was cool but never put too much attention on it, and then it happens: you notice how it was the coolest thing you’ve ever seen?
I used that lame metaphor in a failed attempt to explain my recent crush on one of my bestest friends.
I won’t go into too many details right now, I’m just going to say that I was this close to giving up on everything and then suddenly it happened. She was valiant enough to tell me something that completely changed my point of view on some subjects.
I’m sick of my own depression. I can’t stand thinking about all this negative stuff all the time, I need to change.
A lot of things are happening around me, most of them aren’t directly related to me but in some way they do, and at the same time I’m facing a lot of new things all the time.
I’m not doing really well in college… I dropped out of Mathematical Analysis and I’m considering dropping out of Physics too. In fact, I’m ditching my class right now. I did quite well on Introduction to Scientific Thinging (or IST from now on). I got an 8 out of 10 and surprisingly most of my classmates failed. What surprsises me is that I didn’t study much for the exam, I just read the chapters of the book and studied from previous exams I got online.
But I need to change. I need to focus on myself and on making the lives of people around me easier. I need to help myself and everyone around me.
And by achieving small accomplishments every day I think I’m getting closer to that. When everything you do or try to do leads to frustration, you just don’t find a purpose on anything. And that’s what needs to change: I need to find a purpose and I have to avoid getting frustrated.
Let’s start right now.
