I really like to read when I'm eating - 'The New York Times' or the 'Wall Street Journal,' paper version.
Don't play dead with a vulture. That's exactly what they want.
I've been involved in animal issues for quite a while, going back 24 years. I started reading up on factory farming and slaughterhouses and animal cruelty, and it didn't make sense for me to be part of it.
You don't want to throw out a good idea and have nobody get excited about it. It takes the wind out of your sails.
With music, you're laying it all out there. They're judging you right away, and you can lose them quick. With the comedy, you've always got another joke to redeem yourself. Or, even if you've only got one joke, at least the punch line is at the end. Then they have to at least pay attention until the end.
Basically, I'm a people pleaser who has a knack for disappointing.
