This entire film began with a quip by Annika, “Why don’t we film our trip along the road and all the people we meet on our way to LA…?” she mused. I thought it was a pretty clever idea. After all, the whole undertaking was more than just a band promotion for us, and we knew it. It was a personal statement of self-assertion…and that may sound silly, but I don’t know how else to describe it. For years I had been trying to please everyone, and I finally faced the setback where I JUST DIDN’T CARE anymore…. and in this, was a lesson that maybe other people could relate to as well. The playing field, I realized, really wasn’t level after all, and I was going to stop blaming myself and allowing other people to blame me for this. Annika and I both had something to say to this effect. We had an irrepressible desire to upend those who were trying to repress us. Filming a documentary was the intermediary that revealed itself as a means to this end, a platform wherefrom we could reach our like-minded audience.
