Warmer Climes: The Truest Faith is about...

The love of my life and the life of my love.

Warmer Climes: Are you selfish or selfless?

Marcus Joons
:
Selfish, I hope. You have to take care of yourself to be able to take care of others. I love being alone. Cause it feels like I’m never alone. We have fun, me and my soul.

Warmer Climes: I saw that new t-shirt on Ac├ęphale...Looks like a Stone Roses one. Why feathers instead of money around the neck?

Maybe it is a coincidence. Maybe not. Whether or not, I think that Ian Brown were magic as long as he wore that oversized money shirt. When he took it off, all the magic was gone.

Marcus Joons

Oh, I don’t know. Haven’t been to Sweden since January. And when I am away I use to romantisice the Swedish countryside outside of Gothenburg where I grew up and where my family still lives. It’s so stupid. Cause every time I go back I get dissapointed. Cause it’s not as Barnen i Bullerbyn-pretty as it was when I was six years old.

Samoa.

Yes, many times. Even though I can’t remember any specific one. I am so history-less.

Football player. I wanted to be the new Matthew Le Tissier. Or Ilie Dumitrescu.
