Ryan Gosling Talks to Pitchfork

Jan 23rd, 2009 // 8 Comments

Ryan Gosling talks to Pitchfork about his kids-gone-goth project Dead Man’s Bones, whose album is coming out this summer: “You know when you’re a kid and you get crayons and papers and just draw whatever you want and it’s just a bunch of messy lines, but to you it makes sense, and then they put it on the fridge? From that point on, you’re always trying to get back on the fridge, you start drawing things that look like something, like, the more it looks like a horse, the more chance you have of getting it on the fridge. We wanted to get back to that place before we were trying to make the fridge. We wanted to work with people who hadn’t been affected in that way yet.” [Pitchfork]

    I’m sure people will get on his case for such a twee analogy, but I think that’s a very worthy goal indeed.

    Take out Ryan Gosling and replace him with Joaquin Phoenix and they have my money.

    I just watched Half Nelson again last night. God damn i love that movie and Gosling can do no wrong in my book.

    It’s still hard to believe he is a MMC graduate.

    @Nicolars: I find it quite believable.

    It is twee…but sweet enough.
