When I get my day in court the public will finally hear the terrible truth about the cruel things that have been said about me and done to me by people who can't handle the way I wear 'Other radio stations are shit' t-shirts and grow sideburns south of my earlobes. And most of all, they'll hear about me, me, me. See... HARD NEWS 01/06/01 - All About Me [1]
