why are parents allowed to yell and scream at their children and call them names and just make them feel like shit in general…
but when kids try to defend themselves…. its disrespectful?

humidifiers fill the air with water molecules from a source of water.

Q: Meaning behind the band’s name?
A: Sinema was an idea I came up with. I knew when we decided to make a band that we would be putting on a show while we played music. You go to the Cinema to see shows; rock music has always had the “devil’s music” stigma around it, so pop and S on the front and you have SINEMA.
Q: What would you classify your music as?
A: Going into the studio to record the High Times EP we kind of expected t come out as a hard rock band, and we did. However, this next amount of time we’ll be doing in the studio is a new beast, we’re going to go in with a new open mindset and record freely how we feel. The sky really isn’t the limit, the limit doesn’t exit.
Q: What first got you into music?
A: I’ve been singing since I was a small child. We had a piano in the living room of my family’s old house, I would stand on the bench and sing for people just for the sake of entertaining. Its in my blood.
Q: Were you ever bullied in school?
A: Somewhat, but I never really cared and by the time I was a senior I was pretty respected by most people for being myself and not giving a fuck.
Q: Favorite rock album?
A: THIS IS TOO HARD.
Q: What message are you trying to send with your music?
A: The message varies from song to song. I’d rather the people that listen to it interpret the message how ever they see fit to apply it to their lives.
Q: What age group is your music aimed towards?
A: Teens and young adults, but we appeal to an older crowd too. It’s great.
Q: How did you start off in your music career?
A: Musicals, Theatre contests, a little bit of college, and playing shows for ourselves in Marlon’s garage.
Q: What is it like to be in a band?
A: Its a lot of work and money, but more than worth it. We have a lot of fun.

Q: Where have you performed?
A: Birmingham, AL; Jacksonville, AL; Ocean Springs, MS; and Douglasville, GA.
Q: What are your favorite and least favorite venues?
A: No comment on the least favorite, but I love The High Note in Birmingham. It’s run by some really cool people and their stage is just fun to play on.
Q: Do you have any upcoming shows?
A: Not currently because I was, in a head on collision, hit by a drunk driver and I’m down with a bad knee…for now.
Q: How long have you all known each other?
A: I went to High School with Marlon(4 years at least), met Nathan at a show shortly after I turned 18(2 years), and Nathan introduced me to Cody a couple of months after that at Birmingham’s Pride Festival.
Q: When did you form the band?
A: Marlon and I formed SINEMA in mid 2011, but this lineup has only been rocking for about a year now and it’s really the only lineup that matters considering the accomplishments.
Q: What inspired you to make music together?
A: The love we all share for music.
Q: Who writes your songs?
A: I do pretty much all of the writing but there will be a gust writer or two in the future.
Q: What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?
A: Live your life and don’t take shit from anyone.
Q: Do you think these topics will change over time?
A: Everything changes with time.
Q: What are your rehearsals generally like?
A: Get to Marlon’s, wait on whoever’s not there(myself sometimes), go through a few songs and fix errors, smoke break, play again, smoke break, bro love hugs, go home.
Q: Do you have a set time each week in which you practice or are rehearsals more spontaneous?
A: Spontaneous as hell.
Q: What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands?
A: Work hard or you won’t even have a chance and don’t put yourself or your music in a box.
