|Introduction||I fawking loathe George Bush jr like no other American politician. Wow does he ever piss me off. I don't like being pidgeon-holed, but the labels "pessimist" and "artsy incompetent utopian-idealist" leave room to roost. We gotta fix all the bad shit with love and technology! Who wants my love? Who can explain technology to me? Oh shit. Here come pain and death with all the terrifying inertia and rumble of a midnight avalanche! I abhor gratuitous lies, snobbery, cruelty, vacuity, stupidity -aka "sorority bitches". I hate hypocrisy, though it's what distinguishes us from the lower mammals. At one point or another, I've acquired all the prerequisite vices for becoming a writer, but I'm still not a writer. I'm stumped. I've had to drop some of the writerly vices - impossible to maintain w/o substantial incoming book royalties. My friends look to me for generosity and understanding, and I'm proud to give these things.|

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?
No public head. Head for customer only. Piss elsewhere, fame.
