I like books that have razor-sharp plotting that snaps and moves along. It's not about the main character being different at the end. I don't want my main character to be different in the end. I still want him committed to his ideas, to be steadfast, true and loyal.
Unprecedented financial pressures, and an ever-increasingly aggressive public culture, along with social, moral and spiritual fragmentation, are leading to lives being overwhelmed by stress, intolerable interior isolation and even quiet despair.
I'm always working on new songs. With the technology these days, any idiot can record on Pro Tools on your laptop.

So I'm always down in my basement, singing along to riffs or whoever I'm collaborating with.
'Mullygrubber' is an Australian term which means something that creeps along the ground; it's like a little grub.
I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do.

Kanan is a big road through the Santa Monica Mountains. Between mid-March and mid-April, when you get over to the western side of the mountains, it's populated by Spanish broom - this beautiful, yellow, flowering weed that smells the way I imagine it smells along the Yellow Brick Road.
John C. McGinley
Obviously, education is hugely important, along with healthcare. They're the basics and you're hurting your own country if you don't pour money into them.
