I mean, really, I don't think there's anything more fun for me than pastiche. Making fun of a style of art is a real opportunity to open up people's minds to the strengths and weaknesses of their favorite artists. It's commentary, criticism, and parody all in one.

For instance, after producing a show called The Oedipus Chronicles, the playwright Scott Venters suggested we produce a full version of the faux Heavy-Metal song we made for the show. So, we did:
Then, the project developed into a whole album's worth of material, with Scott and I (and other guests) reborn as Warriors of Fate.
My brother and I also have a special relationship. That is, we both relish and savor our disdain for much of modern music. This led to our forming a "group" called Up Front Flu-Z where we let 'em have it.
