I always try to keep it that way." - William Fichtner

"How this feels is I'm just another task in God's daily planner: The Renaissance pencilled in for right after the Dark Ages.

Then maybe in thirty years, or maybe next year, God's daily planner has me finished." - Chuck Palahniuk

My lead guy was a good friend of mine and a talented artist named Quincy. He's such a cool guy and I felt he would be perfect for the video along with a cameo from Don Benjamin," - Jasmine V
