One time when I was drunk, it’s my favorite way to start a story. It warns the audience that something outrageous is about to happen, gives me an excuse for bad behavior. Plus, no interesting story ever started with, “I was eating my salad when…” Sorry, salads aren’t interesting. And they don’t lead to anything interesting happening. Ever.




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
