"The ubiquitous ‘I’ or that dogmatic nameless bastard" — interview

“Can we even call it writing these days? When I first started I was a ‘writer’ in that I would fill notebook after notebook up with pencil scribbles. Now, I can hardly write legible cursive. No, these days it should be called typing or word processing. No one writes longhand, and if they do it has to be because they don’t have access to a processor.”

SYMPATHY 4 THE DEVIL

“Most members of the media in this country are all in a state of shock right now. These are the people who have been coming out of the woodwork in support of Hillary in Gala after Gala. And still Trump has connected with more voters having only himself behind the podium. It has been the great mistake of the liberal elite to discount the moral majority/ Middle America as ignorant or flat out stupid… with beliefs which are laughable and therefore irrelevant.”

The Doorman

“I wrap my arms around my shoulders and rub. It is colder than a dead pre-school teacher’s cunt out here. I have been told to stand regally in front of the door, to respect the stature and tradition of the position, but I am not wearing a tall fuzzy hat and this ain’t London luv.”

"Most of us have been in a recording studio. Many of us have one in our home" — interview with Nashville audio engineer

“it just occurred to me that even though I live in ‘Music City U.S.A.’ I have brought you very little in the world of music. Almost everyone in this city either is directly involved in some way or knows someone who is. We all have demo albums and we all play guitar. In fact many national acts will not come play our town because Nashville audiences are notoriously hard to impress. Half the people in the crowd can pick up any instrument on stage and give a comparable performance.”
