Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Blake: (on being a child actor) I don't know if I encountered much fame growing up. If I did, it was kind of lost on me. I appreciated my time there, it was cool.

    • Blake: (on writing for himself vs. writing for an audience I try to write it for myself, I've written with the audience in mind before but I try to write it for myself. Sometimes you write it for yourself and people hate it but in a way that's almost satisfying, in a way it's kind of cool.

    • Blake: (when asked if he ever drinks) No. When I was younger I could see how people were interested in it, but it's not for me. I don't drink or do drugs. It's just not me.

    • Blake: (on how he feels about blogs, downloading and the internet's effect on the music industry) At first, it was pretty bad. People were just downloading the songs for free, which is fine I guess, but still. You work hard at writing and producing them and people just take it. There was no yin to the yang; no positivity to the negativity. It's different now. It's much more positive. And it's changed music. I mean I just finished producing a record for a band, and I've never done that before. I would have never heard of them without Myspace. Well, I mean my friend told me about them, but I got to hear them from Myspace.

    • Blake: (on whether or not the Rilo Kiley album "Under The Blacklight" was inspired by the darker aspects of Los Angeles) I'm not a guy who sees a seedy bar and feels like he has to go in, I keep to my routines. I think it's less inspired by L.A. and more inspired by life.

    • Blake: (on how he must get tired of interviews) No, they are okay. I mean, it's fun to talk about yourself isn't it?

  • This Rilo Kiley co-founder is more talented than he's given credit for.

    Blake Soper (also credited as Blake Sennett)Played the role of Joey the Rat on Boy Meets World to perfection. For such a talented actor it's a shame he wasnt cast in more roles even outside of BMW. I'm sure he's not too concerned ever. He currently enjoys a successful career alongside Jenny Lewis (a child star in her own right) as the guitarist for the semi-popular band Rilo Kiley. His last role of any kind was a small guest spot on "Once and Again" in 2000. He played the role of "Blake". But like I said, he's probably not too concerned.
