A long time ago, I became aware that many of us have a tendency to lump nature into simplistic categories, such as what we consider beautiful or ugly, important or unimportant. As human a thing as that is to do, I think it often leads us to misunderstand the respective roles of life forms and their interconnectedness.
My music has always been sort of in between categories. Sometimes record stores – back when there were record stores – they’d put my records in the country music section, but other record stores would put my records in the pop or even the rock section. As long as it’s in the store somewhere, I’m OK with it.
When we talk about music, we tend to place our experiences into one of two categories: making the music and listening to it. Delineating the two seems practical and obvious.

I collect… for a long time, I collected Nike Air Max 90s, this specific shoe. And it really is nerdy, because collecting sneakers is not that nerdy, but if you don’t wear them, and you keep the box fresh, if you’re that fanatical about it, then you leap several categories into super-dork, and that’s the way I was.
I don’t want to be lumped into any categories.
One thing that I feel very, very strongly is that we talk about Islamic countries, Islamic people, Islamic leaders, as either moderates or extremists. It’s almost like there are only two categories of Muslims. And actually, that doesn’t show respect. It shows lack of understanding of the diversity of Muslim thought.
I think people like to have their categories clear. They want to know if it’s fiction or fact, biopic or not.
I’m not as aware of categories in music as some people are. To me it’s just music. I’m interested in all kinds of music.
