These are from Youtube:
“Nov 5Th ..2 days after my 58Th birthday…I’m buying the high price ticket,will be up front fuked up. I first watched them when I was 21, ..I’m the tall well built guy wearing the driving cap….who said drugs were bad for you,I’m healthy,successful and partied all my life…Holler at me.”
“I partied at my friends’ Mike and Wally’s apartment from ’72 til ’75, and we’d drink brewskies, smoke reefer, and listen to the stereo and LP’s. (Vinyl) And Wally had a black light for after midnight parties, with psychedelic posters luminating fluorescently. But Blue Oyster Cult was a multi-hit Outfit and they’re songs were the background music for many memorable parties!!!You can’t call them 1-Hit Wonders!!!”
Good times great oldiees!
Ben: To your health.
Frank Booth: Ah, shit, let’s drink to something else. Let’s drink to fucking. Yeah, say, “Here’s to your fuck, Frank.”
Ben: If you like, Frank. Here’s to your fuck.
From David Lynch’s 1986 cult classic Blue Velvet, of which a mini classic film review will be up accompanied by two other recently (though not firstly) viewed flicks.

Black Lips during a 2009 concert in France:
Cole: If you were the teacher, what would you grade us tonight?
Joe: A+, we know it all the way.
Cole: You would put us in special needs classes. If you were our teacher, you would put us in classes for retarded children.
Wasted Jared Swilley: This is why we are where we are right now. Because our whole life we were normal childrens in the retardeds classes. This is why we act the way do right now because no one understands us.
Cole: You put me with retarded children. I’m not retarded.
Jared: You can’t blame us for acting like retards when your whole world put us as retards. We are a product of this world that is run by white people.
Cole: It is a reflection of your whole generation. It’s just looking in the mirror.
Joe: I bet you wish you were retarded just like us!
Cole: Look in the mirror!
Jared: Your generation called us faggots, you called us white boys, you called us retards, queers, homos. We’re sick of that shit so this is the product of what we became because of you.
Ian: You were probably that kid, too. Stuck in the side room, didn’t have no friends.
Mark Sultan on playing to unfamiliar audiences:
“In places like Cambodia, you go in there and they have no idea what you’re doing. There may be five people there or 50, but they have no idea what that sound is. By the time you’re done, maybe you’ve got one hooked. That’s how this works. One person at a time, just like a disease.”
“I want you to understand that I respect the rights of the poorest and weakest of colored people, oppressed [to deny others their rights or liberty] by the slave system, just as much as I do those of the most wealthy and powerful. That is the idea that has moved me, and that alone.”
John Brown at his Virginia Court Hearing, 1858
And you Klyammy cats thought Jay Reatard was wild at Harpers Ferry, you should have seen John Brown in 1859!
“I guess there’s just two kinds of people, Miss Sandstone: MY kind of people, and assholes. It’s rather obvious which category you fit into. Have a nice day.”- Connie Marble in Pink Flamingos (1972)
“How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?”- Howard Zinn.
RIP Howard I hope all is well in another world. Out of the vast sea of astute and indisputiably appropriate Howard Zinn quotes, I chose this one as it raises the primary question regarding the so called, “War On Terrorism,” how can you end violence when your largest vehicle of combat is violence on the grandest of scales?- sadly, a question few pose on both pro and anti war sides.
“Fuck the President! I voted for assassination.”- Immortal Technique
“Am I really all the things that are outside of me? Would I complete myself without the things I like around?”- Animal Collective- “Taste”
