"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."

William Ellery Channing

"The man who never alters his opinions is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind."

 "I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don\'t like anything in the mainstream and they don\'t like me."

If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they\'ll kill you.

QuoteWith demoniac energy Zappa launched us into my piece. To my surprise I sensed a growing consanguinity with my youthful audience as I played. My fortissimo ending brought out screams and whistles the like of which I had never imagined possible. Dancing Zappa, wild audi- ence, and befuddled me -- I felt like an intruder in a mad scene from ALICE IN WONDERLAND. I had entered my Age of Absurdity.

[Nicolas Slonimsky "Perfect Pitch" --from Chapter 23, "The Age of Absurdity"]

I LIKE that!

here s one for ya:

Its better to kneel down than to bend over!

You Are What You IS, You Ain't What You Not!

Marshall McLuhan to Timothy Leary

"to dispel fear you must use your public image. you are the basic product endorser. Whenever you are photographed, smile. Wave reassuringly. Radiate courage. Never complain or appear angry. It\'s okay if you come off as flamboyant and eccentric. You\'re a professor, after all. But a confident attitude is the best advertisement. You must be know for your smile."

Flashbacks, chapter Altered States, p.252

I was wondering were this came into being, starting to finish this book after a two year absence.

Bruce Campbell (Ash from the Evil Dead movies) has a ton of great quotes. Not very thought provoking but fun none the less. Here are a few......

"I don\'t care what happens to her. She\'s your girlfriend, you take care of her. I\'m getting the hell out of here, right now!"

"There\'s something out there. That... that witch in the cellar is only part of it. It lives... out in those woods, in the dark... something... something that\'s come back from the dead."

"When you\'ve just emptied two barrels of a shotgun into the head of your favorite bartender it\'s a pretty good bet that happy hour\'s over."

and of course the classic "GIVE ME SOME SUGAR BABY..."


" Without deviation ( from the norm ), progress is not possible " F. Zappa

" Every reason I became Buckethead and am Buckethead has to do with the way I live. It\'s not because I thought it\'d be successful " Buckethead ( tiny excerpt from a Guitar Player Interview \'96 )

great thread here. I LOVE Bill Hicks  ;D

What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us

are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.


Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.


Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous- to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd.  

Thomas Mann 1875-1955

i like it  :D

I like to feel the artists\' soul-- as well as their mind-- pushing the medium they are working in. With the artists I have been lucky enough to work with, or my own music, I like to challenge myself and the listener, but I don\'t want to frustrate them. I don\'t care for artists who like to challenge their audience just for the sake of getting a reaction. The best ones always give something of themselves that is real and heartfelt, then push the boundaries of their medium.
