I was born on the peak of a mountain with a full grown beard at age sixteen. The earth was my mother and the sky was my father. From my very first day, I knew the beauty of the earth and the sweet taste of freedom. The only bad part about being born on a mountaintop is that the only way to go is down. And down I went. As I attempted to integrate with modern society, I was overcome by humanity’s greatest pleasures: Chicken tenders, RuneScape, and Michelle Branch. My life fell to shambles. Before I knew it, my only source of joy was to spend hours at a time in the shower singing songs about a children’s cartoon. My performance will be a culmination of that.
