FROM THAT PLACE, AS SOON AS MY EYES ARE OPEN, I CAN NO LONGER ESCAPE. NOT THAT I AM NAILED DOWN BY IT, SINCE AFTER ALL I CAN NOT ONLY MOVE, SHIFT, BUT I CAN ALSO MOVE IT, SHIFT-IT, CHANGE ITS PLACE, THE ONLY THINGS IS THIS: I CANNOT MOVE WITHOUT IT. I CANNOT LEAVE IT THERE WHERE IT IS, SO THAT I; MYSELF, MAY GO ELSEWHERE. I CAN GO TO THE OTHER END OF THE WORLD; I CAN HIDE IN THE MORNING UNDER THE COVERS, MAKE MYSELF AS SMALL AS POSSIBLE. I CAN EVEN LET MYSELF MELT UNDER THE SUN AT THE BEACH-IT WILL ALWAYS BE THERE. WHERE I AM. IT IS HERE, IRREPARABLY: IT IS NEVER ELSEWHERE. MY BODY, IT’S THE OPPOSITE OF UTOPIA: THAT WHICH IS NEVER UNDER DIFFERENCE SKIES. IT IS THE ABSOLUTE PLACE, THE LITTLE FRAGMENT OF SPACE WHERE I AM, LITERALLY, EMBODIED. MY BODY, PITILESS PLACE.
” I hopped on a train with some Polaroids I’d taken with a disposable camera. I got incredibly lucky and got signed right away and started working from the get-go. I planned to only do it for the summer, but then I fell in love with it, and I have never looked back.”

“Suppose I were to give you a key ring […] with a hundred keys, and I was to tell you that one of these keys will unlock it, this door we’re imagining opening in onto all you want to be, as a player. How many of the keys would you be willing to try?’
‘Well I’d try every darn one,’ Rader tells Lyle.
‘Then you are willing to make mistakes, you see. You are saying you will accept 99% error. The paralyzed perfectionist you say you would stand there before that door. Jingling the keys. Afraid to try the first key.”
― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
” We spend most of our life building our own house until the day we get locked inside. We start framing the world, and then the world frames us.”
“AFTER A SHOOTING SPREE, THEY ALWAYS WANT TO TAKE THE GUNS AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T DO IT. I AM SURE AS HELL I WOULDN’T WANT TO LIVE IN SOCIETY WHERE THE ONLY PEOPLE ALLOWED GUNS ARE THE POLICE AND THE MILITARY”.
“MY STATEMENT IS: LIFE AIN’T EASY, IT’S SIMPLE. IF YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING, JUST-DO-IT-YOURSELF. I THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD FOLLOW THEIR DREAM, CAUSE YOU’LL ONLY HAVE ONE TICKET. LIVE A LITTLE FOR FUCK’S SAKE.”
” IS IT IMPORTANT TO BE A SEER? MAKE ONESELF A SEER? THE ARTIST BECOMES A SEER THROUGH A LONG, BOUNDLESS AND REASONED EXPLOSION OF ALL THE SENSES. ALL SHAPES OF LOVE SUFFERING AND ALL KINDS OF MADNESS. HE SEARCHES HIMSELF, HE EXHAUSTS ALL POISONS IN HIMSELF, TO PURE HIS UNIQUE QUINTESSENCES. A HEAVY TORTURE WHERE HE BECOMES AMONG ALL MEN THE GREAT PATIENT, THE GREAT CRIMINAL, THE GREAT ACCUSED ONE -AND THE SUPREME SCHOLAR! THUS HE REACHES THE UNKNOWN!… -THE ARTIST, A THIEF OF FIRE! “
” MUSIC WAS NOT A CHOICE FOR ME. IT IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF MY LIFE, A NECESSITY ACTUALLY. MUSIC IS MY ULTIMATE LOVE, AND I ENJOY SHARING THIS LOVE WITH EVERYONE ELSE THAT FEELS THE SAME. I GUESS THIS IS WHY I CHOSE TO DJ, SO I COULD SHARE THIS FEELING WITH OTHERS. “

” WITH PEOPLE BUZZING IN AND OUT OF CROSSING STREETS, THE WHOLE VILLAGE IS VERITABLY BREATHING, SWEATING AND MOANING ALL AT ONCE.
