Forbes Talks With Max Bemis About The "Song...

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/29/12)
Forbes sat down with Max Bemis to talk about his "song shop" project.
From the ArticleI feel Im getting to function almost as a pseudo therapist for kids, he says. Song Shop allows Bemis to create a direct connection to the most passionate fans, those who would gladly spend a little more cash for a unique connection to their favorite act, and its a business endeavor that has a lot of spiritual gratification. While the fans certainly feel more connected to Bemis hearing him sing about whatever issues they were struggling with or random thought they wanted him to sing, it also helps Bemis connect to those who love his work: I really write and play the songs imagining someone hearing it for the first time.

If you write 100 songs in a day what are the odds that even 5 of the songs are any good? That's literally crapping out a song every 15 minutes, providing that you stay up the whole 24 hours.

I'm with you, but I don't know how his creative process is. I'm sure there's going to be a few clunkers in the Song Shop output but I don't know how much it'd really affect Say Anything songs. Likewise for his Painful Splits stuff.

Does such a person exist on this site? Everyone is pretty openly critical about his band, even those who like him.

And honestly, a few clunkers to a bunch of people is probably a masterpiece to the person it was specifically written for.

To be honest, I bought a song from him only because I wanted a chance to speak with him, and that alone was worth the cash.
