A Life Less Ordinary. Creative songwriter, film enthusiast and Transformers super-fan, Justin Courtney Pierre, is our guest on Episode 139 of Sappenin' Podcast! The Motion City Soundtrack co-founder leaves all his cards on the table, as we explore his unorthodox artistic mind, overcoming his personal demons and endless comedy gold worthy tangents. In this conversation, Pierre opens up on having to spend the last year recovering from a serous surgery, reestablishing his love for music with the release of two new solo ep's "An Anthropologist On Mars" & "The Price Of Salt", juggling his internal responsibilities as a father, working on a secret project with Josh Cane, his battles with alcohol, drugs and painkillers, the return of Motion City Soundtrack, how the band have a new refreshed energy since their hiatus, celebrating the 17th anniversary of Commit This To Memory, what Mark Hoppus (Blink-182) the producer is like, accidentally quoting his own lyrics in public, music fashion vs practicality, the time he got to hangout with members of Wu-Tang-Clan, preparing for Riot Fest 2021, writing for artists like Metro Station and Against The Current, comic books, technology, random thoughts, falling asleep to Veronica Mars again and why the three of us want to do a Transformers: The Movie (1986) watch-along podcast!
