I'm in show business and also I do parodies and novelty songs.
Mt. Kisco, New York
"I'm a folksinger from the land of the big buildings. NYC is the hip hop nation - even our frogs play the saxophone. I grew up playing the tuba. My parents are intellectuals. Just singing and strumming and storytelling and working out like crazy."
WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE? ”How to act bad”
WHAT CAN’T YOU TRAVEL WITHOUT AND WHY? Tarot Cards. I’m obsessed with tarot and numerology. I made my own tarot-deck based on Garfield characters and symbols. If I’m on the airplane and I draw the wrong card I make them turn the plane around.
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION? My favorite place is Austin, Texas. My brother lives there, and so do a lot of other good people. I just took a Greyhound there – hell of a trip! I need to get back there more often. Other than that, I like St. Thomas.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE PERSON TO SHOW YOU “THEIR NEW YORK CITY”, WHO WOULD IT BE? It would be great to see New York City through the eyes of filmmaker Harry Smith. He seems like the most interesting tour-guide I could think of. I heard he knew a spot on the Bowery where if you listened close enough you could hear times square because of the way that the noise was reflected.
WHAT OR WHO HAS INSPIRED YOU RECENTLY, AND WHY? I was just inspired by Instagram. I just downloaded it recently and I kept thinking what would be the best picture to post. If you actually check out what the most popular pictures are they are so boring.
