5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH:
My great aunt Marie– she was a Japanese translator during WW2 and had some crazy stories.

Bill Withers – he’s just a real guy.
Sterling Archer– that would be a fun night

I WROTE THIS SONG: It’s about a woman who doesn’t realize the control she has over you. For better or for worse, you are helpless around her.
