I like to write a lot of satire.
I'm a person who is always trying to write in a different vein.
I'm a writer, so whatever gymnastics jump through my head, I write about it.
If everything gets too serious for me on the album, I get kinda bored. I've got to have some kind of jovial things in there.
Most people say, 'Well, Earl, you sing the blues,' or however they want to categorize it. I just sing songs.
