I'm interested in anyone cutting up music and doing remixes. I just don't think it would work in a live setting right now to do shows with a traditional DJ, but it's something that might happen eventually.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

In the two years of preparing material for shows, I realized there are elements that are definitely going to work live, but might not be the most exciting thing to put on a record. And there's stuff that I really love but it falls flat live.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I think a lot of times people from the traditional DJing world think I'm trying to come up with an ultimate dance mix. That's not really what I'm doing. I'm trying to make something a little bit progressive and challenging.

By Anonym 15 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

As the times are changing, you don't hear as many sample issues with rap artists. Part of that has to do with production styles these days, but the nature of copyright is also changing as the internet becomes more of a giant.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

The point has always been to make music, it's not like I've always been running a giant money making scheme.

A lot of people aren't aware of the years and years of humiliation and horrible shows I've played.

By Anonym 15 Sep

The internet helps with information exchange in general so it's obviously easier to check out tracks and whatnot from different genres. I think people are a lot more open to music in general because it's being communicated easier.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

You can feel a little vulnerable when you see people tearing you apart on the internet or saying, "It's the end of music." "This guy is a total hack." I've read it all. But at the same time, even though I feel a little vulnerable with that, I do feel comfortable.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

When people come to my shows they know there is a distinct beginning and end. It's difficult for me to play for much more than an hour, so people kind of come out and treat it like a rock show. They're fiending and ready to dance.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

The whole basis of the music is that people have these emotional attachments to these songs - whether they love it or hate it. Being able to manipulate that is a really easy way to connect with people.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

Sometimes the show needs that kick in the ass so being able to sing a Nirvana song kind of takes it there. I've grown up putting on extravagant shows with Girl Talk so when I'm playing I like to go nuts. After 30 minutes of pointing and clicking it's nice to scream into a microphone for three minutes.

By Anonym 15 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I sometimes get in the car [and] jump all around hunting for a sample, and then I can get really annoying if anyone's in the car with me. But if I'm actually listening to music, I have a pretty solid attention span.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I didn't change much in terms of my setup or how I was making my music. It's evolved to this point where I think people look at it as one big traveling party.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I wanted to make experimental music out of pop.

By Anonym 14 Sep

I typically get around to most major cities at least once a year. I think people see that as their chance to go nuts for the year if they're into the style of music.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I have my small little cult following, I play random shows from house parties to opening up for rock bands.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I'm most excited about going swimming and riding water slides, shooting off fireworks, and playing basketball, and things like that. That's what I really love doing. Summer is a great time.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

To get 300 songs to fit together on an album, it's not like I choose 300 songs and say these are the ones I wanted to pick. To get those 300 songs I sampled 1000's of songs and narrowed down the ones I felt worked the best musically.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I think collaborating with a DJ could be interesting musically and it's something that I'd like to get into down the road, but I think on the live show tip I'm sticking to my guns for right now.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

When I would play pop music at underground shows, it was offensive to some people. I wasn't doing it to piss people off: I just didn't believe in those strong divisions that you're supposed to listen to this or that.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I've been approached about doing some live performance collaborations with DJ's. That is something I'd be interested in getting into down the line, but I've worked very hard to distinguish myself as a laptop artist.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I think if I lived in New York I would be really stressed out going out to a club and seeing a good DJ who's doing something on a similar level. I'm pretty critical of myself when it comes to the music. Maybe they're not doing as many samples or the samples aren't put together as specifically but it would stress me out to feel like I needed to be one upping someone. In Pittsburgh, I'm in my own world - I know I'm the guy doing this here.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I sampled a bit of stuff from my dad's collection. He has probably a bigger record collection than I do. I try to buy as much as possible, because I've never been able to keep an MP3 collection organized. I like to keep my computers as clean as possible.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Girl Talk

The point of making records for me isn't to hear 300 songs in 50 minutes; it's to hear the 50-minute piece of music.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I do try to pick music that is from different worlds and typically doesn't flow together. When you do that, you get songs with conflicting messages, but for me, it's on a musical level first and foremost.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

That's something I've always been down with: creative commons and people being able to license their music and allow other people to reuse it and recycle it.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

Anytime there is any lyrical meaning or combination in my mixes, it's very blatant. I'm not trying to make any statement or anything like that.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I want to make new and interesting music out of pop music in a way that isn't ironic. I want to stay sincere to the source material but at the same time manipulate it and take it to a new world.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I still like weird music but there's such an overabundance that it's hard for me to stay enthusiastic about it.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I listen to music constantly, and I'm always hearing things I love that I'm excited to use.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Girl Talk

I hear something I like, and sometimes, I think it's gonna work, and I will cut it up, try it out, try to work with other material. Sometimes, it falls flat, and other times, it works out, so in that way, I'm constantly listening to music because I enjoy it.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Girl Talk

I've always enjoyed taking pre-existing sound, songs I like, songs I want to share, and manipulating them and trying to do my own version. So just knowing there's that potential for that thing out there that I haven't discovered yet, really gets me motivated every day.
