“What’s this guy so angry about anyway? Guitar work and progression is like mine. Good backbeat. Can’t understand most of the vocals. If you’re going to be mad at least let the people know what you’re mad about.”

“I am at a loss to understand why people hold [Jane] Austen’s novels at so high a rate, which seem to me vulgar in tone, sterile in artistic invention, imprisoned in the wretched conventions of English society, without genius, wit, or knowledge of the world.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Journal, 1861

And it all sort of works out in the end. You see people with vampire teeth and blood dripping down their face, turning green. But you know they are hallucinations, and you just ignore them, really.” —Nik Turner of Hawkwind
