“The world is filled with people who are no longer needed—and who try to make slaves of all of us—and they have their music and we have ours. Theirs, the wasted songs of a superstitious nightmare—and without their musical and ideological miscar-riages to compare our Song of freedom to, we’d not have any opposite to compare music with—and like the drifting wind, hitting against no obstacle, we’d never knows its speed, its power.”

– Woody Gurthie, Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star


“I’m thinking of a queer feeling I sometimes get, a feel that I’ve got something important to say and the power to say it – only I don’t know what it is, and I can’t make any use of the power.”

– Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
