Jokerette: :)

Jokerette: Sarah_: When you said, "Everything I told you about myself is true" Was that set up purposely so that you wouldn't have to think up the entire character? IN other words, was your character built around YOU?
briankeithetheridg: MY CHARACTER WAS BASED ON ME BECAUSE I DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD BE RIGHT TO BE THE GUY WHO GAINS MATT'S CONFIDENCE AND THEN HAVE IT BE A TOTAL LIE, SO I WAS A TONED DOWN VERSION OF ME...I DID USED TO BE A MUSICIAN FOR A LIVING
