I don't mind The Boss.

people than I feel on my own.

Why do you think the old stories tell of men who set
out on great journeys to impress the gods? Because

what I am doing but I can't answer it.

it's only a matter of how much you can take and what it does to you.
- Henry Rollins

I don't mean to be arrogant and I really appreciate
my fans but talking about what I am doing is not something I'm good at.
