How could anyone not like a guy who writes songs such as this:

2. "Pancreas" "That's a style parody of Brian Wilson, an homage as it were.
It's meant to sound similar to the music that he did for Smile and Pet
Sounds, and it's basically a love song to my pancreas, because it came to my
attention that not a lot of songs have been written about the pancreas. And
I thought that it was a void in pop culture. Also because my pancreas has
given so much to me over the years, I felt like I needed to give something
back to it, so that's the reason for that."
