XXBCNYC_INTERVIEW October 10th at 10:26pm
___Hi XXBC, How are you?
XXBC: (Alex & Will) Not so bad. And you?
___Where you live? It's around where you born?
Will: I live in Jersey City, New Jersey. I was born in New York, though. The two are about an hour away from each other.
Alex: I live in Brooklyn, New York, which is nowhere near where I was born. I'm originally from Medway, Massachusetts about a 5 hour drive from here.
_____What your work talking about, in a few words?
Alex: I think our work talks about originality, innovation, comfort and just enjoying life.
___What are yours tips for producing?
Alex: Make sure you know how much it'll cost before you go ahead and do it. After 2 collections, we've come to realize how important it is to take a step back and ensure what you're doing is cost-effective. In that sense, it's necessary to be patient and cautious at times, even when all you want to do is go, go, go.
Will: Be patient; be efficient; be careful when choosing your factories. And constantly check on your garments to make sure they are being sewn correctly.
___And what are yours tips to feel good?
Alex: I think meditating is a great way to feel good and I wish I did it more often. Even just taking some time to sit alone or to read a few pages in a book can make a big difference in your day. Oh, and don't eat shitty foods!
Will: Listening to Dom Kennedy and drinking a cold glass of lemonade. Shoe shopping makes me feel good, too.
___Does any extraordinary things happened to you recently?
Alex: Well, I just graduated from college. Now I can enjoy my life!
Will: My sister bought a house, had her 2nd baby and graduated from medical school. She's pretty extraordinary.
___What would you suggest me to see, or hear?
Alex: Alldayeveryday has some great mixes on their "SoundCloud". I'd suggest you give them a listen.
Will: I would suggest you listen to Dom Kennedy's "From The West Side With Love 2" album. I would also suggest you watch the documentary on Pina Bausch if you haven't already seen it.
___Carnet d'Ivoire can help XXBC in the future?
Alex: For sure... I think, through this interview, we are in the process of forming a friendship that could definitely bloom into a mutualistic relationship. You be the bee, we'll be the flower.
___If you could change something about you or in the world.. what would it be?
Alex: I wish people would just put the bullshit behind them and live in peace. Can't we all just get along?
Will: If I could change something about myself, it would probably be my texting skills. If I could change something about the world... That's too tough. This world is crazy.
___What you give me? And what i can give you in return?
Alex: You've already given us some awesome vinyls, so we owe you. Name your price and it's yours.
___Thanks guys, There is a question that you would liked me to ask you?
Alex: I think you asked us some great questions, so no there isn't a question we would like you to ask us. Thanks for checking!
