Something about dogs, some interview on youtube (the funniest one) where he keeps saying "george washington" for answers.  Damn I can't find that one!

"Playing with dogs, whenever it happens, I'm ready". Love it.

Oh yeah, and "maybe we should start being assholes".  I also like the one where A says one of his main goals is to not be a douche. props on that one.

B: "Don't be so serious . . . you're so somber"
A:  "really?"

When talking about the nostalgia of IMing.

Also "George Washington" never gets old.

one that I love is at the end of that one, Andy says: my favorite time of THE DAY . . . is twilight . ."
I love the way he emphasizes "the day".

i dont know if anyone else recognized it, but the record store they got "kicked out of" in their london video was Rough Trade Records. its a record label that produced the early smiths albums as well as some other really amazing stuff. its a very famous store, but still pretty discrete. i am pretty sure they knew who they were immediately. i make it a point to stop in there every time i make it to london. if anyone is planning a trip there, be sure to make it a destination. you can find some amazingly rare stuff there and some pretty cool memorabilia. i realize this doesn't contain a quote, sorry. just a little tidbit of info.   :P

I reckon he was serious... in a cute voiced kind of way. But i have learnt to never trust what he says when he has a cheecky smile.

But im sure he went to a public school (the public school near me is totally bogan) so that means a little...

And well he probably has been up to no good when it comes to drugs for a while. But he apparently a A+ student ... which is confusing..?

"I would like, stare at my salad, and that was like really the first time I ever really had like flashes of the whole world like falling apart of collapsing. Like, the salad just didn’t make any sense at all, if that makes any sense. Like, ‘what the hell is happening, why is there like, little pieces of plants on a plate? Like, what is going on?’ and it’s like this little moments when like nothing makes any sense at all."

"I was like marveling at the simplicity of a porta potty. It’s so beautiful, I mean like you do your thing and then you’re like ‘I have something to do right now’, but you can’t do it, but really you just have this moment where all you have to do is walk out into the world. It’s beautiful."

And this one was nice.

"Here's what I think, I think that uh, I think that a lot of days for me recently, it's like every split second is, the whole universe is created and destroyed, it's like constantly collapsing and reforming, and I think a lot of people feel that, and um I think that love is the answer, and that's the only thing that matters, I think there's lot of really evil people that are in control of everything, but I think people know what to do, and there's going to be a change."

Description for Siberian Breaks: "So you´re on a island and it´s a very dark island and you´re walking around at evening, the sun is setting and you find a crab in the ocean you deide to make a fire and then cook it. The crab is very tasty,it´s avery rare crab  one of the smallest crabs you´ve ever seen that´s still eatable, but you still decide to eat it and it´s very refreshing...only...there´s no more food on the island and so you gotta keep looking for more food, maybe you can eat a coconut, but those get reallly boring after you keep eating them all the time and just chewing the coconuts and you´re surrounded by sand and water......you know?"

Surreal, but GENIUS moment at the end of their set at Reading 2008...

Andrew: "Thank you very much Reading Festival. We will eat you later"
Someone (possibly Ben): "You can count on it".
James (Pointing outside the tent): "The salt and pepper is over there".

Bizarre, but superb!!

is there a video for this?

That reminds me of an Andrew quote from when they performed Brian Eno on the Jools Holland Show in the UK. Right in the middle of the song after the "...la Baptiste de la Salle Eno" part:

"Are you watching Brian??"

Andrew: I think our goal at that time was to annoy people with our music. But it's changed now because we wanna make people happy.

...

Andrew: Eventually it could take over the world. It could unite the animals in the cages and they can eventually take over the world.

That’s the goal of this band, just to get someone famous to dress up like a wizard in one of our videos. Brian Eno can design his costume and do whatever he wants in the video.

Two revealing quotes by Andrew about "I Found A Whistle":

"I’ve never really been able to openly tell people what the song is about for certain reasons. I think it started off as talking about getting in situations with someone you love, where each person is kind of holding back from the other person so they don’t hurt them."

"It’s sort of a love song. It’s about relationships and fighting and meltdowns and games and tricks people play. It’s about making a pact with the devil. It’s a dark, mystical song. Sometimes [MGMT] feels more a business than a relationship but we’re trying to preserve the spirit we had."

I don't know if this is already here, but is new for me. It is really nice read things like this.

 It's a Ben one:

We don't want to have this attitude like we're doing something that's so weird. To us, it makes complete sense and is totally rational. We've thought about every moment on the album, and we're not just trying to be absurd for the sake of it. It's hard to have that attitude when people are asking us if we're deliberately trying to lose fans. Of course we're not trying to do that, we're just at a point where if we aren't as true to ourselves as we possibly can then we're going to go crazy.


I love the whole interview.

Love, love, love every single quote on this page. Especially the last one.
Two of my favorite quotes are from the Mental Mystics video:

"We really just want to show our true selves and be all that we can be musically. When you're making music you love and you're really inspired, you can change people's lives. You can change the world." -Andrew & Ben

And of course, "FACT: I wanna live in castle" which is my text message alert tone :P

And my absolute favorite, from my favorite interview video:
 
"I think that love is the answer and that's the only thing that matters. I think there's a lot of really evil people that are in control of everything, but I think people know what to do and there's gonna be a big change." -Andrew

Like, the slald just didn't make any sense at all, if that makes any sense. Like, 'waht the hell is happening, why is there like, little pieces of plants on a plate?

When asked how touring was, Andrew said : "It was fun... Sometimes. No, I'm just kidding, it was fun... Sometimes."

I only saw this part of the interview and I can't find it. That's too bad because the interview seemed to be funny.

And my absolute favorite, from my favorite interview video:
 
"I think that love is the answer and that's the only thing that matters. I think there's a lot of really evil people that are in control of everything, but I think people know what to do and there's gonna be a big change." -Andrew

THAT IS ALSO MY FAVOURITE QUOTE EVER AND MY FAVOURITE INTERVIEW!!!

It was on AUX, I used to intern for them and they're pretty awesome. In fact, It's one of my favourite quotes of ALL TIME (not just mgmt). The way he says it and his face... talking about his (right) theories about how the universe is being constantly created and destroyed (Siberian Breaks anyone)... that whole section is my favourite thing that has ever been said by MGMT or any musician.
