But now you got people that’s in their mother’s basement on the computer, eating Cheetos and sh*t, and you just can’t pay attention to it. In this age, it can be good and it can be bad, in the sense of, you can put a song out and it instantly goes everywhere, but you can also get a lawsuit by slapping the shit out of somebody.
