and it means nothing i mean, literally, it doesn't mean anything. but it inspires a bunch of stuff. so, like, all of my videos for the most part have to do with synesthesia, all of my artwork, all of my -- everything i do live all the colors for each songs because those are the colors for those songs specifically and you, you want to know? for you? >> jimmy: yes. when you see me or hear me, or smell me - [ laughter ] what do you -- think what is my shape [ light laughter ] >> so your shape is -- a, like vertical, brown rectangle. >> jimmy: vertical round rectangle? >> yeah, and i don't - i mean, i can try to explain it >> jimmy: no >> it doesn't make any sense so, like, j. your name's jimmy, right >> jimmy: yep. >> j is brown to me.
