DJs still have relevance, even with the technology that elevates the DJ beyond being a selector.
The Wire‘ was from a police perspective – in terms of the streets and that, it was probably like, thirty per cent. ‘Top Boy’ is really from the perspective of the quote-unquote criminal.

One nice thing about the benefit of long experience with la frontera is that we in Texas don’t have to run around getting all hysterical about immigrants. The border is porous. When you want cheap labor, you open it up; when you don’t, you shut it down. It works to our benefit – it always has.

You’ve got to eat while you dream. You’ve got to deliver on short-range commitments, while you develop a long-range strategy and vision and implement it. The success of doing both.

Trajectories aren’t linear. Life’s just a roller coaster. If you’re getting a chance to do cool stuff, and it’s varied stuff, just enjoy it. I guess I’m a believer in the randomness of life rather than it being a linear trajectory or an arc, a consistent smooth arc, towards anything.
Gymnastics, for me, gave me a lot of self-pride: that drive to want to be great at something for myself. But it also gave me a sense of appreciation toward God. Now that I’m getting older, I really appreciate the talents God gave me. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally.
People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives.

I did go to an MFA program, at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. For me, it worked perfectly. It was a small program.

Trying to guess what the (mass) audience wants and then trying to satisfy that is usually a bad recipe for getting something good.
‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ have pumped up the recognition factor a thousand times. I can’t get off an airplane anymore.

A big barrier to people getting help with online harassment is the general attitude either that it’s not a real issue – that it’s ‘only’ online – or that it’s limited to someone saying they don’t like you, and all of that stems from a basic misunderstanding of what we mean when we say ‘online harassment.’
As I’m getting older, I’m really learning unconditional love and loyalty are extremely important.
I’ll put it out there: I love getting hugs.

Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.

That’s how I am.

I live in a neighborhood so bad that you can get shot while getting shot.

I’ve been offered political shows before, and I don’t know anything about politics and I feel uncomfortable making political opinions – there’s consequences to them.

Leaders establish the vision for the future and set the strategy for getting there.
