He's an Accomplished Opera Singer
My mom was an opera singer and I did a musical in high school and people were like, "You can sing and should train." So I started training and it started moving really quickly, and then for five minutes I thought I was going to do the Met audition and go to West Germany. But it didn't work out that way.Listen to more of this on the Ranker Podcast above!

His Childhood Memories Go All the Way Back to Infancy
I can remember being in my crib under the age of two. I remember what was on the wall, these little wooden cut-outs of Little Boy Blue and the cow jumping over the moon.

He Figured Out a Childhood Nightmare Decades Later
As a child, I used to always would bug my parents whenever they were going out. I would always say to them, "Are you going to see the man with the squares in his eyes?" Rather than asking me what I was talking about, they would go, "Oh yeah."
Well it turned out that I had a dream that was super intense when I was really young. I have a line of demarcation because we moved when I was two. I have all of these tremendous memories of this house before I was two. This dream was about me and my mother huddled in a car and we were stuck in traffic, and some man who was like a zombie was walking over the cars and he had red crosses in his eyes for pupils. I didn't know the difference between squares and a cross so I just called him the man with the squares in his eyes.
That dream seemed crazy intense and stayed with me throughout my childhood. I was a senior in college in Boston and I saw a white ambulance van from the '50s on the side road, like they were shooting a movie there. But it was this white van with this red cross on it.Listen to more of this on the Ranker Podcast above!
