Maclachlan paired Lorde up with various songwriters. "It didn't work at all," he says. "I think Ella inherently sensed that she was never going to sing other people's songs." She finally found a simpatico collaborator in Joel Little, a graduate of the New Zealand pop-punk circuit with some national hits to his name and an ear for spare, electronic beats. Little helped teach Lorde about song structure. "I wanted to bend the song around the lyric, as opposed to vice versa, kind of squashing the words in there," she says. "Joel would say, 'The syllables have to match up!'"
Sekret Machines will also feature a forward from Jacques Vallée, a computer scientist and one of the most well-known writers and researchers on UFOs (he was the inspiration for Claude Lacombe, the French scientist in Close Encounters With a Third Kind ). "The sightings have been ignored by academics, summarily brushed off by politicians, censored by churches, classified by the military and ridiculed by the media," said Vallée. "Yet the reports continue to come. The experience of the unknown has only deepened, raising unsettling questions about the intrusion of the uncanny in our shiny modern world of convenient machines and superficial entertainment."
I do see your point. While I feel yandy over steps her boundaries a lot, Samantha seems to try and negate the fact that she wasn’t being a mother to their son (because she was going through whatever she was going through) and mendeeces stepped up. Now that she got herself together she wannabe super mom again. It must be very hard for Yandy because she’s known that boy since he was little and he lived with them, so I see her side. Now that Samantha wanna be mom, she just thinks she can snatch him out of a home he’s spent the last few yrs in and that’s not ok. She could at least let him go to Yandy she on the weekends to so no time it’s her and his brother and sister, but even Samantha said it herself she doesn’t trust Yandy! That blew my mind because I can understand her not liking Yandy, but I see no reason why she wouldn’t trust her and I don’t hear her giving examples and reasons why. Yandy genuinely cares about lil mendeeces and she’s been raising him. I see both sides.
