When I used to have a shaved head, people always said Bobby Hill. Some people say John Goodman.

I Wanna Dance with Somebody.

Whitney Houston.

18. What's the best gift you've been given?

In my family there is a long standing tradition of giving and receiving candy from the See's candy company. My great grandma Ping used to send them to us from California. After she passed away her friends knew how important the tradition was and continued to send us candy. Specifically their nuts and chews variety. It's always the best candy, and there is so much nostalgia to it. Aside from that, it's also one of the very few traditions left in my family.

19. If you had to change your name what would you change it to?

My mom originally wanted to name me Vincent, after Vincent Price. I would go by Vinny.

20. What's the best advice you've ever received?

"All the things you have to do in life, don't finish any of them. You can't die tonight if you've got shit to do tomorrow."
