Art is made in a fight. Not in your mother's arms. Do it today, tomorrow it may be illegal. This is the language of the earth. This is the language of a beast. Big dreams, good music and expensive taste. Ideas over two years, made in two minutes. We got the future on tape. Never Wait. But be endlessly patient. Concrete, bulletproof, invisible. Never one for Freud... only listened to Jung.le. Remember nature? In a time of intense violence and ugliness, beauty becomes a revolutionary force. Pleasure from illusion. Happiness from reality. You're never going to die, you're going to make it if you try. They're going to love you. Ha!-Ha!-Ha!
Eternity is a mere moment... just long enough for a joke.*
