I went from being a kid who loved to perform magic tricks to becoming the world's most notorious hacker, feared by corporations and the government.
Habit allows us to go from 'before' to 'after,' to make life easier and better.

I never feel so utterly fraudulent as when I review a movie whose charms impress all in the world and I simply do not get it. The other variant is that I love something the world disdains. This has had severe career consequences: I am still famous - or notorious - in certain quarters where I am recalled as the man who liked 'Hudson Hawk.'

Waitresses, soldiers, rickshaw drivers, old ladies selling vegetables - my father would schmooze anybody. He was Clintonesque before the word existed. And, of course, it paid dividends.

I'm a very big Notorious B.I.G. fan and I do an imitation of him that always cracks everybody up.
