i'm not catching on fire today

some mornings i wake up and just know that it's not going to be an out-of-sight day for me. this morning i knew it and i said to myself "i'm not catching on fire today," which, i think, is a line from a Cake song. remember Cake? i quite liked Cake. i used to really enjoy listening to Cake on roadtrips. They're subtly clever, easy to sing along with, and they make good use of horns. i like horns. anyway, i typed "catching on fire today" into the google image search and this dude with a microphone stuck to his face appeared.
his name is danny small and he's a hypnotherapist in Swindon, Wiltshire, England. he's a quack. the term "quack" is hilarious. and the idea of a hynotherapist in Swindon who is a quack ... also hilarious.
he has a website: apparently with 'mind belief,' you can ignore all rules of grammar and diction. he says/asks "some things might appear to be an issue for you NOW?"

i read that sentence upwards of twenty times and i still can't figure out what he was going for. i assume the question mark was a mistake ... but that sentence has NOTHING to do with anything around it. also, two of his services are "power nap" and "indian head massage."
