I’m just focused on getting to the end of each show and feeling like we’ve done a good job when we walk off stage. And a perfect show isn’t necessarily about making the audience feel good. I know I’ve done my job well if I’ve made people feel… interesting. I like to leave them a little stunned.
The vast majority of people in academia, especially at the administrative level, have so little confidence in their ability to make an argument for their liberal cause, they choose to keep conservatives from making their own case at all.

Making music is still what keeps a fire going on in me.
And you realise you’re doing a public service in making people happy – as a musician you can give people something a doctor, a lawyer, a politician cannot give them that. It’s not scientific. It’s spiritual – a good feeling. And although you don’t know them personally, the audience are like your friends.
Usually I start with a beat, I start making a beat, and my producer side is making the beat. And on a good day, my rapper side will jump in and start the writing process – maybe come up with a hook or start a verse. Sometimes it just happens like that. A song like ‘Lights Please’ happens like that.

The future of technology is not really location-based apps; it is about making location completely unimportant.
