Let me give my definition of crazy. Webster’s tells us that the definition of crazy is to do the same thing expecting a different result. Now my definition of crazy is to think of something that nobody would ever do and say it out loud or attempt to do it. And while people are looking at it and it’s not working people will say, ‘Oh, that’s crazy.’ But if you do something that no one would ever do and it works then that’s genius. So I’m going to be crazier because crazy is the first step to genius. And, for me, genius is ground zero. I’m bored otherwise. I’m yawning otherwise. If you’ve seen it before, I don’t want to be involved with it. I don’t give a fuck how much money it pays. I’m into designing and concept. I’m into designing the future. I’m into motivation. I’m into inspiration.
