Quote of the Day
I do not deny that I planned sabotage. I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness nor because I have any love of violence.

I give myself homework when I have an audition. I give myself goals, and that's how I check how I'm doing. It can be something simple like 'listen,' or 'find your feet.'

I made my own assessment of my life, and I began to live it. That was freedom.
I would say my fraternity was nothing but a bunch of farm boys; we weren't really in the whole fraternity scene, but yeah, that's a safe assessment of who I am. I've lived that life, growing up in agriculture and then going off to college and joining a fraternity, livin' that life.
