Everybody thinks the best stories come from real life, but you want to know the truth? I have absolutely no clue where I get my ideas. Why does everything have to be autobiographical? I fight about this all the time, especially with my Uncle-Dad. Just last week he was like, “Hey, Kid, where do you get your ideas?” And I was like, “Let me get this straight, Uncle-Dad. You kill your brother, my father, marry his wife, my mother, then suddenly expect me to sit down with you and have a pleasant conversation about where I get my ideas?” I got so worked up, it took me like three soliloquies to calm down.
