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.*
