confessions of a dj:

If music is limited only to a certain scene, venue, and corresponding crowd then it's not art. It has transformed into an act, and I shall have nothing to do with it. Music, for me, is the sound of emotion. Everyone has emotions, even hipsters.

"If the main reason we listen to music in the first place is to hear passion expressed- as I've believed all my life- then what good is the music going to prove to be? What does this say about us? What are we confirming in ourselves by doting on art that is emotionally neutral? And, simultaneously, what in ourselves might we be destroying or at least keeping down?"- Lester Bangs, "Blondie", reprinted in "Mainlines, Blood Feasts and Bad Taste.
