They’re lost, but I wouldn’t say that they’re floundering. They have jobs, at least. I relate to Abbi and Ilani a lot more than I relate to the Girls girls. Also, it’s a heck of a lot funnier.
Q: You’re steeped in classic rock and country music, but you also have your punk-rock and heavy-metal side. Do these influences ever seem incompatible?
A: When I was in high school, I remember, on my Converse sneakers, on one side I had written “Social Distortion,” and on the other side I had written “Guns N’ Roses.” Somebody said, “Hey man, you can’t have both those bands on there; that’s punk and that’s metal.” I was like, “Check this out: My pen just totally worked when I wrote them on either side of my shoe, and the cassettes are totally in my backpack right now, so it’s probably O.K.”
