1Anecdotes about his family, childhood and romantic life
2Sarcastic, self-depreciating sense of humor


1Memoir is the last place you'd expect to find the truth.
2Seven beers followed by two Scotches and a thimble of marijuana and it's funny how sleep comes all on it's own.
3I recall thinking that the computer would never advance much further than this. Call me naive, but I seemed to have underestimated the universal desire to sit in a hard plastic chair and stare at a screen until your eyes cross.
4'Shit' is the tofu of cursing.
5My hands tend to be full enough dealing with people who hate me for who I am. Concentrate too hard on the millions of people who hate you for what you are and you're likely to turn into one of those unkempt, sloppy dressers who sag beneath the weight of the two hundred political buttons they wear pinned to their coats and knapsacks.
6After a few months in my parents' basement, I took an apartment near the state university, where I discovered both crystal methamphetamine and conceptual art. Either one of these things are dangerous, but in combination they have the potential to destroy entire civilizations.
