I never faced a pitcher with better stuff than Nolan Ryan.
After I did ‘Mr. Show,’ I was basically just a writer for a while. I was really young, and I kinda was like, ,wow, I’m 27 and I was already on this iconic show, and now I can just coast. But no one likes coasting, because you have to fill your day with stuff.
I would have to work on the song and figure out how they wanted the song done, because they’re such high-intensity songs. We figure that out first, then I go back and listen to it and go over and rehearse stuff with it and try to get a feel for the words.
Isn’t it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation?
I think you miss out on a lot of stuff when you’re so protected and isolated.
So I cut out all the drinkin’ and hangin’ out and stuff like that early on.
I love the action stuff. Honestly, I like sci-fi and everything supernatural.
Every country I would go to, even if it was just on a modeling job, I would go to their markets. If I went to Morocco for ‘Elle’ magazine, I would be in the spice markets during my off time and just come back with a suitcase full of stuff that I really wanted to...
When I’m writing a song, I’m just making stuff up as I go along.
Before ‘American Idol’ and all this stuff, I was obsessed with music charts, and I used to go online to find out what was popular in other countries. I’d log on to the BBC website, and that’s how I found out about artists like Natasha Bedingfield, Daniel Bedingfield and Take That.
We can’t have democracy if we’re having to protect you and our users from the government over stuff we’ve never had a conversation about. We need to know what the parameters are, what kind of surveillance the government is going to do, and how and why.
I found my voice was a reaction to all that voice stuff.
