A week ago I was interviewed for an Outside the Inbox article for the Montreal daily La Presse and it ran today. Here it is:

«Les paroles à l’intérieur des chansons n’utilisent pas des mots pris aux pourriels, mais elles s’inspirent de leurs titres», explique Brad qui a réuni des collaborateurs de toute l’Amérique du Nord pour produire les 14 titres de Outside the Inbox.

I have no idea what I said there but I sure hope it’s awesome.

The article is on page 7 in the “Actuel” section, with a small reference on the front page. The article is across the page from the comics so I’m sure you’ll get a lot of people reading it.

I ran that little paragraph through Babel Fish and got this:

“The words inside the songs do not use words taken with the pourriels, but they take as a starting point their titles “, explains Brad which brought together collaborators of all North America to produce the 14 titles of Outside the Inbox.

FWIW the Blind Mime track actually does quote the entire e-mail. Funny, huh?

Does anyone know where I can snag some more Verbose songs? I Got Your Letter was sweet.

I couldn’t find Verbose anywhere on the web. I wish I could understand all the words. Maybe he’s really the cat.

“the song texts don’t use words from mails, but their inspirations were mail titles” explains brad who, together with collaborators from all over north america produced the 14 titles in “outside the inbox”.

Here’s the translation:

“Songs lyrics aren’t take from spam mail content but inpired by their title” says Brad who got help from collaborators from everywhere in North America to produce the 14 titles included in Outside the Inbox.

my take on the lyrics:

i got your letter
what’s better than that
meant for and delieverd to me
and now i peruse
each inelegant ruse
and i wonder who’s ordering these
i guess it’s some guy
who’s like 45
wishes he’d die
and maybe he tried
and your mail arrived
just caught his eye
a stray ray of light
a word from on high
up to twice his size
where can i sign
where is the line
one day he’s fine
and next he unwinds
which is the ground
which is the sky
