"i was thinking a lot this last while how it's a thin line between being a pleasant agreeable person or an utter phony...trying to strike a balance between truthfulness and kindness can be tricky for a clumsy buggerluggs like me...this video is me playing out the role of an overly enthusiastic game show host or cabaret singer, to get across the idea inside this song. i hope it's fun for you..."

"I left home and heavy-handed schools at the age of sixteen. That’s when education became fun, with music as a compass throughout. Songwriting along with a loving home are my main concerns. I’m weary of politics. I feel that whole aspect of life is now debased to the level of a television game show - music is positively highbrow by comparison. I haven’t many decades left in this world, so I’m on my own little mission of love and music while there’s still time left for it."
