Too Much 77006

50 Ways to Know You've Been In Montrose Too Long.

I try to avoid answering music-related questions because I think there are more important issues to address that people want answers to. But since I would not have this column if not for my music career and a number of people continue to inquire about my musical future, I would be remiss to remain silent.

As you know, with the market being saturated with everybody and his yard man rapping, record labels not investing in the long-term success of artists, fans pirating music and radio stations favoring booty music over substance, it's difficult for artists who have something to say to be heard, so that's why I haven't put out anything new. I'm put off by the politics.

I don't know about bigger and better, but I have moved on to other things. I'm doing some stuff in Hollywood and I'm writing a few books. I've never stopped recording, so eventually I will release new material. I can't give you a timeline as to when, but until then, hop into your car, turn your favorite Geto Boys or Willie D song all the way up, then roll up on a policeman and ask, "Excuse me, Bro, aren't you the cop from The Village People?"

Dear Willie D:

I have been in a relationship for 16 years with the same guy and I found a condom in his pocket. Is he cheating?

Out of Pocket:

Are thongs found between booty cheeks?

Dear Willie D:

How can I be a more responsible student and begin to write more effectively?

Irresponsible Student:

Becoming a good student is like being good at anything else in life: You have to put in work. Common attributes that successful people possess are focus, drive, commitment and follow-through. Apply these methods to your studies.

Get a decent amount of rest and start your day off with a healthy breakfast. Listen and don't be afraid to ask questions. Participate in class discussions and group projects. Complete your assignments on time. Keep a journal of completed tasks to gain a sense of accomplishment and reward.
