Imitation is the best form of flattery. That certainly is true. Some say my work... is... morally reprehensive. I disagree. The same as Ben Folds being inflenced by Tom Waits, I am influenced by A Clockwork Orange in my line of work.
I may not be a wordsmith, but you can see the emotions and feelings and deep meanings behind the effort I produce with my work. From the messages of 'You fuck me with, I fuck with you', to 'You eye my sister again... oh wait, you can't'.
I have to thank all the volunteers that help me with my work. A Clockwork Orange, I think is my main influence. Possibly some Grand Theft Auto thrown in. But, growing up, I knew I wanted to do work just like that. Of course, I got my dream. My parents - like with many other artists in any field - dissaproved. They kicked me out of the house. But, luckily, they changed thier minds, and they were part of my work. Exhibited around the walls.
The only people who liked my work was the police. Not the band, but the actual police. I think they liked it too much. So, I let one officer, a Mr. Tom Roache, become one of my masterpeices. This, I think, was my breakthrough into the mainstream.
My work was everywhere! Even the BBC was advertising it! That is an honour.
Well, I must go now. Say, you mind if I give you a lift home? You sure? I'll, uhh... show you some more of my peices. What? Oh that shiny thing in your chest is my workers' tool.
