The Apocaloptimist: Chatting With James Lee Stanley and Tony Ferrari, Plus Exclusives From Cracker and Year Of October | Mike Ragogna
A Conversation with James Lee Stanley
Mike Ragogna: James, you called your new album The Apocaloptimist. Why are you so optimistic about the Apocalypse? Why, James, why?
James Lee Stanley: Mike, thank you for the time. By way of clarification, you seem to have misconstrued my intention with the word “Apocaloptimist.”
MR: Oh, no…hate when that happens!
JLS: As it happens, I am not optimistic about an apocalypse. I seriously reject the nouveau nihilism, and the entertainment industry’s infatuation with some dystopian future. However, I am optimistic that we can overcome what is one possible future for us as a nation, a people and a world.
