When I start to feel overwhelmed by all the projects and responsibilities and stuff I have on my plate in my day-to-day life, I remember that Gene Simmons must have ten thousand more things weighing on his mind when his head hits the pillow every night. This is just a smattering of what he's working on:
And here I am stressing out at night over the Cheeseburger & Fries play, planned art exhibitions and fundraisers, acquisition of new office space and performance space for my theatre company and burlesque troupe, working on my long-overdue Panola comic strip, trying to find time to jam with my jazz band, working slowly on my art-nude photography book, cranking out some fiber batts for Etsy gals, and managing the Creeps stable of stars under Superfrothco's sneaky umbrella. Somewhere in all this, there's two possible deals still hanging in the air for a JSH art gallery and an Unusual Kentucky museum.
Compared to the mighty Gene, I'm just a tempest in a teapot. But I probably get more leisure time than Gene, since he's the ultimate Type-A person and I'm actually devastatingly lazy. Plus Gene doesn't drink, and probably doesn't consort with the fairer sex nearly as much as he used to in his youth. So I think I'm content with my life and probably wouldn't trade places with Gene.
