Anonymous asked: Hi! I toured Bates today and was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about some of the pros and cons of the school? (I've heard that it might be somewhat cliquey) Also, is the school politically active?
yay! did you like the tour? i hope the weather was nice, i toured in the rain!
hmm, pros and cons…

calgary native victor liu spends one night every week, regardless of the season or weather, camped out alone under the stars at banff or jasper, where he occasionally, with use of his self timer, captures photos of himself with the northern lights and milky way.

"Well, it’s funny. That song was one of the first songs we worked on. Rostam sent me the music for it, probably before we were even done with “Contra”. I’d listen to it over the years and start writing something on top. He already had the piano, the drums were very different. We already had the piano chords, and that’s kind of all we needed to get going. And it kind of took the form of this kind of like advice to somebody. And I always had a feeling that it ought to be track one. And I was trying to think: Why did I always think it should be track one? And maybe it is because it has that feeling. I realized the first word in it is “morning”. So, the first word on the whole album is morning. It’s a sense of beginning and telling somebody: “Yeah, get up and go. Like leave this situation. Nothing’s going to happen for you here, like go do your thing.” And it kind of felt like the right note to start on."
