Completely floored and stoked to interview Air Pop for Packet. I met up with Air Pop and Asher Penn, to ask them about Daisy ParkBeta Pictures, and their plans for the future of film. Air Pop’s EP that came out a few years ago remains one of my favorite debuts of the last few years, and the level of consideration in Daisy Park is an astounding progression from that foundation. There’s 10 pages or so of info in here, and it’s definitely one of the things that I am most proud to have had in Packet. 

Please support this awesome team and buy/rent Daisy Park today.

kerenmd: Hi! I picked up Motivation at the NY Book Fair and was wondering what the "motivation' was behind it, also what is it, also what's the point of it? also, it's great/wonderful/mad guud

Thank you so much for the kind words :) I have this little piece of paper that I’ve been keeping in my wallet for almost a decade that I wrote a little about here:  … this was kind of the emotional mood board that I wanted to work off while I made the book. 

Basically, I always find myself posting my favorite songs, or videos that inspire me on Facebook but no one actually logs on there and pays attention to things like that. I’m always trying to explore how I can get people to interact with poetry and language in new ways. I wanted to parallel my favorite songs with my favorite video references, building a kind of mixtape conversation to supplement the book. Instead of me posting why I like them, I thought it would be interesting to kind of turn it into a puzzle where if someone had seen those they would have this crazy moment and if not, someone could care enough to try and figure it out. The clips are supposed to talk to the song before or after, to serve as a narrative for the mix, and to have a conversation with the lyrics in the songs that I chose.

There’s a lot of weird tidbits in there, Ben Stiller talking in Heavyweights, speeches from the Mighty Ducks 2, Dating on Demand videos, the kind of weird youtubes that I find myself circling back to all the time. There are two really quick clips from a video where Jason Dill rewatches his Photosynthesis video. The body and how we all deteriorate, and at the same time get mythologized is intense, all the while still being alive to remember your glory days, or when you were able to do certain things that you aren’t able to now. Sometimes I get scared that I’m living out my glory days and not even realizing it, or not living them to the potential. I think about this video all the time when I get worried about that… it motivates to take more risks/// to be more aware of aging and what comes with that.

As for why I made this, I just had a show in July and I was trying to figure out what was the next piece of art production I could do. The poems and self help moments in “Motivation” are the conversations I have with myself trying to figure that out. I read a few self help books and was really inspired by the kind of cult-y language used in them. Like all advice, they never seem to be giving the same message, so I wanted to use the book form to be a more succinct version of the things that I read that I liked, while also inserting some parts in the book that can also confuse a reader and make your own decisions about what motivates you or not.

Have a rad weekend/stay motivated,
