No one knows better than me what it’s like to have a second life within a career. Can you imagine what it’s like to play indie-rock shows in basements where people are yelling Salute Your Shorts or The Wizard? I mean, are you fucking kidding me?

I want to hear what he’s going to be writing when he’s an old man.
