I've got many questions to ask you, but I'll try and ask you as few as possible. Before I ask you any though, I just have to say how big a fan I am of everything you've done. Unfortunately, when I first got into system I was too young to go see you play, and when I was old enough you went on hiatus, which is why I am overjoyed by your reunion. Your solo work, alone and on the Serart album, and the music by Scars has been so amazing, which is why I am so excited for this summer, because I'll be on the front row and download festival to watch you play. I've waited so long to hear your heavenly voice live, and after missing your solo tour last year, I don't feel that this moment could have come at any better a time.
At the moment, I'm in my last year of college and am writing a 5000 word extended project entitled, "How has Serj Tankian's political views impacted on his music, poetry and perception of society within the USA and Armenia?". The title is a work in progress, as is the essay, and this is the reason for my questions. I would love an input of you, and if possible, any of the other System boys, because I want to do you all justice.
So here are my questions. Answer whichever you want, be that all or none.
Firstly, what is the metaphor in the poem metaphor? I could have a guess, but I would your answer to this more than to any of my other questions.
Can you recommend a better title, or is mine good enough?
I was thinking for the System songs I choose to write about, I would use the ones that are in the Screamers film. Would you recommend any others?
Which songs of yours would you suggest that I use?
Of your poems, from the Cool Gardens book, which would you suggest I use?
And finally, could you share your views on any of your songs or poems, or the current situation of the world? Please
I thank you so much for taking time out of your busy life to read all of what I have to say, and whether you respond to anything I say, I still feel honoured.
See you at download x
