“I was born in Sunnyvale, CA and lived there until April of 2005 when I moved to go to film school in Los Angeles, where I have been ever since. The rest of my family now lives out of state so there isn’t really a “home” for me to go home to anymore. I get nostalgic for my bland suburb’s quirks, such as a water tower painted like a giant can of Libby’s fruit cocktail. I hope to make it back up there someday to play a round of mini golf and sit next to the statue at the public library.
This song is a love letter to a place that has transformed from a small agricultural community into a bustling village of high tech companies that draw professionals and their families from all over the world. I’ve been gone so long that I hardly recognize the city when I come back for a visit, but my memories are encased in a golden cocoon of amber nostalgia - much like the mosquito from Jurassic Park.”
