August 2017 Twitter Q&A

Twitter Q&A session.

It's 10:55pm. (GMT-6.) Room temp is a toasty 74 degrees. I haven't left my hotel room and I intend not to. It's ✨ Q&A ✨ time.

What inspired #protectyaflaps

You speak of Saturday morning's slathering a pancake in sunblock. Sometimes you have to indulge in goofiness. Laughing alone = joy.

[Question missing]

Right now "Rosie" is in the sweeeet spot.

[Question missing]

Yes. Generally digging the user experience.

John, are you ticklish? And if yes, where?

I am ticklish. But I pretend not to be. That makes people give right up. I go deep undercover.

What is your most annoying habit?

You'd have to ask the people it annoys. But if I had to guess, I'd say it's poking people in the back with a big, rotting wet stick.

Can you spill the tea on how you came up with the lyric "I hate your guts" in Love on the Weekend. Do you say that to your friends? I so do!

That song started as an idea to write really mean/vulgar stuff as a stand-in for unspeakable lust. That line is all that remains of it.

Blue and gold shapes

In an alternate universe, what would you be doing with your life?

Suckin' on chili dogs outside the Tastee Freez.

What's a quote that inspires you?

Hunter S. Thompson said "call on God, but row away from the rocks."

when you stay at a hotel, what is one thing you request to have in your room?

Blender. @Justins almond butter. Almond milk. Berries. A wedding cake. That's about it.

What one thing would you like to check off your bucket list before Oct 16, 2017?

You're really putting me on the spot here but I'll say off the top of my head coming of age road trip with a bionic boy I stole from a lab.

[Question missing]

Rickles. Rest In Peace good sir.

What's your favorite line you've ever written? I love the "played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker" personally

"Life ain't short but it sure is small/you get forever but nobody at all." My favorite lines are in some of the least popular tunes.

Favorite pair of Nikes ever?

Original Jordan Vs were just impossibly cool. Might as well have owned a car.

Sunrise or sunset?

Usually if I see the sun rise, something is terribly amiss.

What did you want be when you grew up as a kid?

In order: Popeye, Han Solo, Marty McFly, Maverick, guitar player.

Where is your favorite place to celebrate Christmas?

Oh that's right Christmas is coming up.

[Question missing]

Dip that big L word in the water. "I love spending time with you." "I love your laugh." Then when you know them for about 30 mins, go for it

What jobs did you have when you were younger and did you enjoy one more than the rest?

Gas station. Grocery store. Record store. I worked every one of them like I was going to own the company. No joke.

if you could only listen to 1 song before you died, what would it be?

"Back in Black," what kind of dumb question is that.

Most annoying current trend?

Ironic emotional extremism.

when you write a song about someone do you think about that person every time you play it?

GREAT QUESTION. No! Very rarely. They enter the abstract space. There is no subject. Only for writing. During which time ✨obsessed.✨

How would you like to be remembered?

As a guy with the absolute strangest "people also search for" lineup in a Google search.

If you could get drunk with one person, dead or alive-who would it be?


Well, my friend Shane who I met in my eBay feedback is here to pick me up. Front desk called. He's honking his horn. Night all! ♥️
