Louis Armstrong or Louie Anderson?

Louie Anderson belongs behind bars. That's all I'm gonna say. Louis Armstrong all day.

Was it easier to start "Exactly Where You Are" or complete it?

It was easier to complete than to start for sure.

I was still using Vegas 7.0 for multitrack recording when I started (in 2018). I was really unhappy with the way it sounded. So I restarted it in January of this year on Ableton and that has helped quite a bit with the labor intensive editing. I write it all as I go, so however long it takes is however long it takes. As long as I get something done everyday, no matter how small a task, it adds up.

Lance Armstrong or Lance Crackers?

Lance Crackers, specifically "TOASTCHEE"
crackers, those I can stomach even when I'm nauseous, I don't know what it is... Now, Lance's "Gold-n-Chees" are not okay. They are disgraceful.

"ToastChee", "Gold-n-Chees"?
Why won't they finish the word? What are they hiding? I have a feeling they are hiding all the boxes of Nabisco Cheese-Nips. Why is it so hard to find a box of Nips? Food Lion removed the price tag and filled the empty space with the generic penguin crackers... like they never existed..."Oh, go with one of the 50 different flavors of Cheez-It".

You can put all the dressing and Old Bay and chipotle sriracha you want on a Cheez-It. They will NEVER be a true Nip.

What are you going to do next?

Gotta get my saxophone fixed, start wearing casual vests, learn how to enjoy seltzer-water, release a few EPs... basically, I plan on living the rest of my life like Jerry Garcia at his heaviest, minus the heroin.

One Small Step or One Giant Leap?

One! Step! Beyond!

What’s an old email address that you don’t use anymore? Why did you stop using it? - hotmail is long gone.
RIP hotmail and your endless ENZYTE emails...

Billy Joe Armstrong or Billy Joel’s Arm Is Strong?

Billy Joel is really 'swole'
But Green Day's riffs, Billy Joe stole
Billie Eilish is really stylish
Not to be confused with Billy Childish
I'm part Irish.
Be more Billy idol-ish.

What is something that you would like to say to the you of five years from now?

Hey it's... you, I have nothing to say to you! You think you're so much smarter and wiser now! Oooh "you've grown sooo much..." GAH! We are down here in 2020 and you're up there chillin', being all like "yep, i knew the whole time." well guess what Marty McFried? If they have a time machine app in 2025, I need to know a few things.
Sincerely, You. November 31, 2020...
