I'm also a wholly unsuccessful solo artist. You may be familiar with my minor hit, "It's Never Sunny in the Basement," which most listeners disregarded as a song and mistook it for their radios severely malfunctioning. For the last few months, I've been working on a very ambitious quadruple-album composed of songs from different insects' points of view (i.e. "Why I Gotsta Get Squashed?", an upbeat bluegrass number, or the polka hit "Shed That Exterior!"), although recently the project was officially called off when many members of my family destroyed my recording mixer with all the songs saved on it in the middle of the night with lawn tools.
