“Freedom is just pretty way of saying that you’ve gone off the grid. For better or for worse, you’re out of options. But we call it “freedom”, we write songs about it, you probably crank them in your car, and never thought about it much. Some people think it’s exhilarating not having your future mapped out. Others start to drown in all that nothing. Maybe you’ll enjoy for a moment the purity of doing what you want, when you want; beer for breakfast, sex in the afternoon. But obligations sneak up… duty, moral code. Some of us are wired to put ourselves back into cages. Freedom is just that moment of calm before the dread sets in. No matter what you’ve freed yourself from, you only get so far down the open road, car windows down, music blasting, before you’re forced to take a turn, make a choice and sentence yourself to the next adventure.”

“We’re all hiding something, aren’t we? From the moment we wake, look in that mirror, all we do is spin our little lies, suck in that gut, colour that hair, twist off that wedding ring. And why not? What’s the penalty? What are the consequences, really? “I’m only human,” you say, and all is forgiven. But what if some cruel twist of fate makes you something else, something other? Who forgives you then?”

What are you talking about?” They’re like “No, the skin” and i’m like “OK, i’ve no idea what are you talking about”
SH: No, seriously, what the hell are you talking about?
SW: You don’t know what that is? Apparently in Twilight-
Interviewer: Apparently vampires glow in light sunlight, or something like that.
SW: They have diamonds in their skin or somethin’ like that. (points to Huntington) Look at this guy, look at him!
SH: I’m not saying anything, not saying anything.
SW: Attack, attack, what do you want to say?
SH: I don’t know. Honestly, I’m not going to say anything, because we’re, you know, on a show and it has vampires in it, but that… that sounds really dumb.
