detuned radio an interview with tomas (fake plstic trees)
The past interviews have begun with basic information: their job, their age, and a small back story. but I think we can do better than that.
I think the best way to describe your self is to think of how others see you so here my first question:
When your walking up to a new person
what do you feel that they will pick
up on of your personality
I feel they will basically see that im relaxed,
laid out, and open to communication. Im not a hard guy to start a conversation with.
What do you think is the worst first impression you’ve ever given off
as a wound up serious guy.
People say I have a serious look in my face.
I guess its true, and I can be serious, but by no means
a mean or strict guy or anything like that.
Also it has happened that people think of me as hateful person.
I don’t know what would make them think that, but it has happened.
When your on your death bed and theirs nothing left
but to look back at your life in retrospect. What do you want to see.
and how much of what you hope to accomplish have you actually done?
I hope to see a life were I worked at a job I liked,
doing something that actually has an outcome.
I see a lot of people nowadays have jobs that
they hardly understand. Like they do they're job all they're life, but
the outcome is just a figure in a statistic or yet another
emoticon page on the net or bullshit jobs like these.
I wanna look back on my life and see that
I somehow inspired people in some way.
My only need in my job is that it has to be something
that needs creativity. Be it design, architecture,
film school (which are my options actually),
it has to have a creative process.
I also would like to look back and see love im my life.
I wanna have known that I did that with love and passion.
Both my job and my life, and of course in love and relationships itself.
You put a strong emphasis on creativity,
what do you feel is your strongest creative medium
I dont know actually. I would love to know.
For the last 6 months most of what has passed
through my mind is what will I do in the future.
I graduated out of high school last Friday.
In a month starts the university process.
Id like to think of myself as a multi-facet person,
I feel like I could do decent in various separate
creative mediums. Right now I plan to study film.
But I don’t like film more than design.
But I gotta try one out to start eliminating the other choices,
and end up with only one. Or who knows, maybe
I’ll be a designer AND film maker. Id like that actually,
and if money allows, I will study and do both.
Who or what in your life has had a major influence on you?
A lot of people. id say I have been lucky
to meet a lot of people that have jobs that they adore.
And they are radically more prone to happiness.
They still have they're everyday problems like everyone else,
but they're happy. Like if they died in 5 more minutes
they'd be eased with the fact that they're lives were happy.
I wish to have that too. Also certain famous people
honestly those kind of people(people who are excessively prone to happiness) piss me off what do you think makes them so damn prone to happiness
The fact that they have a job that makes them happy. Karl Marx in one of his books talks about the "alienation" of men and work. Right now an overwhelming majority sees job with hatred. They do it to get money, and they use money to get the things that satisfy they're needs. They do jobs that hardly have a direct outcome. He hardly understands his job. Twist 2 screws on a production line. It could be a car, it could be a radio, he does not know. He doesn’t see a real result of his job. the job he does has no meaning, no final product. He does it on a land that is not his, for a reason that is not his, for someone that is not himself. He does it for someone that is somehow above him. The worker may have the constitution and his freedom and all that, but he is still a slave to a job he hates. This is alienated. A job should be something that fulfills you directly. The job. Money should be just a byproduct of it, which is very useful, but isn’t the reason why you do the job. People who have found a job that fulfills them as persons are more prone to happiness because they don’t see they're job like a heavy burden, or an unwanted task
So they live without as much stress, and thus are more prone to happiness
of course there are exceptions, but you know what I mean
everyone at one point or another hates their job
weather its from lack of reward, or just plain old hatred of repetition.
repetition has been the death of many
my final question is a simple one
well final two I should say
is their anything that wasn’t covered in this interview that you feel should be?
that I's a hard question to answer. There's a lot more to me than these 2 or 3 questions obviously, but im pretty sure this is enough for my first interview.
shit haha I forgot the last question
hrmilla. ah fuck it haha.
We will end on this retarded note
