You also directed a documentary for the band recently, is that another artistic avenue you would want to pursue?
Yeah, I am proud of doing the film. I mean, I am really, really proud of doing the film and I am always working on my angle of how to portray things. It’s all matter opinion some people might have watched Voliminal [: Inside the Nine] and just couldn’t stand it, because of the way it moves and the artiness of it. But I try to reprogram what people think about this band in their minds. That’s what excites me. That’s what I like to do, and I am going to continue to do it, whether the label will accept it, or my band will accept it, or the even world will accept it, I am going to continue to do it. I don’t really care, because I am driven by these visions. I am compelled. I see metaphors and it’s my job to connect the dots, so pretty soon the dots add up to an hour-and-a-half of conceptual thinking. But I do love it, and I am working on some stuff right now, but it takes time. I am constantly collecting, and I think that’s half the battle. I am always collecting Slipknot shows, and they go into a vault, and they get downloaded and they get looked at. It’s a matter of waiting for the inspiration, something different than what’s been done before pops, and when it pops, I connect the dots, and then hopefully, it works out for everyone.
Dirty Little Rabbit has another EP coming out soon, correct?
Yep, our first EP was called Breeding, it was three songs, and we went on a couple of tours. We have an EP called Simon being released on January 27th, then we are going to release our full-length album somewhere around April 7th. Dirty Little Rabbit is more selfish. Whereas earlier I was telling you that I am only one ninth of Slipknot. It’s the music that I want to make, it’s the music that I want to perform, and it’s the music that I want to write.
You have achieved balance in life, and that’s more than most can say.
I have both realms, and they are both polar opposites. When I am in Slipknot mode, I am moving in one direction, so it’s easy to go over and move in another direction, because it’s behind you. They both move in opposite directions making it very easy to jump on that spaceship and ride it in another direction.
