Do more interesting work and master bilateral breathing.

Change the ratios of money to bullshit, fun to mither.

Incontinent nihilism.

I walk like a giant toddler.

Undisclosed.

I find "hep-cat" phrases and sell them on to marketing professionals from the home counties.

Idea of little consequence met with less interest.

I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts slowed down to about 40BPM.
