When my I spilled my entire cup of coffee, that took me 10 minutes to make, all over the counter. Before taking a sip!

Human trait you value most in others?

The best trait a human could have is integrity.


If you were given a million dollars tomorrow what would you do with it?

I'd buy a car, pay for my next album and tour, spend $5k on a new wardrobe and invest and save the rest.

Nope! I believe in choice and the sowing and reaping principle.
