    There is a 2.5 minute video interview
    with J available online… Circuit 8 DVD

    If you type "J Mascis" into their search
    option, then click on "Mascis/J Fog",
    then click on "features" at the bottom,
    then click on "Circuit Shorts: Tahiti 80, J Mascis, Ryan Adams, Jurassic 5", you’ll see
    it.

    P.S.
    I am going to post pictures and a summary
    of the Fog gig from last Friday at the High
    Dive in Champaign Illinois. Hopefully I’ll
    have the pictures ready by the end of the
    week. I’ll post it on the "Tour" bulletin
    board. It was great, and I got to talk with J afterwards! [img]http://www.freakscene.net/ubb/smilies/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.freakscene.net/ubb/smilies/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

    Hey Foglight,

    Thanks for the tip on the preview, I was trying to resist buying that but once I saw the clip….sold…what can you do absolutely no impulse control.

    Hey,

    Just got this the other day…outstanding!! Gotta love when J is asked to describe himself.."just your basic asshole I guess."
    Other stand out bits in the interview include where he talks about doing soundtracks…says they are easier as he doesn’t have to please himself just the director, watch the film and the songs just write themselves…not looking to become soundtrack guy like Danny Elfman just does it when asked. Also states he doesn’t even consider whether he’s viable or not, just wants to keep making music and have people listen to it. Having Same Day and Waistin to check out anytime is pretty damn cool as well. So pick it up if you can, well worth the small amount of cash.

    ps Danny Elfman used to be my fav soundtrack guy…not any more.

    J also spoke about producing other bands, said he was basically "abusive" when he was producing and didn’t care for the person he became when he was producing for others. He followed that by saying he was thinking about how he might try again now that he is older and use a different technique, i.e. "be nice to them, maybe bring them flowers or something". Really is an awesome video, with two solo acoustic performances. Well worth the money and they ship it out quick.
