There's very little admirable about being a pirate. There's very little functional about a pirate. There's very little real about a pirate.
Whenever I see something that looks like it could be good - whether it's on vinyl, CD or cassette - if it's not too expensive, I'll take a chance.
I need to go someplace faraway that doesn't have telephones and doesn't have a record player and doesn't have movie theaters and people walking down the street in order to not do anything.
Sometimes we need to tell ourselves that we're not going to do certain things, just in order to stay sane.
I think that America in general is piratical. Every time we accept a paycheck for doing almost nothing, allowing us to live above the poverty line, we're engaging in piracy.
I have more respect for somebody who points at his ideal - in this case, the ideal of the pirate - and then becomes something that's more radical, more exciting, more subversive than a pirate could ever be.
As it turns out, as an adult I can have a very unpleasant, fierce and unforgiving temper at times. But I don't think I had that when I was a kid.
It is more rewarding to be complicit with scarcity than excess.
It's O.K. to accept good fortune.
I don't think that word - the word pirate - has any real meaning. Or it's something that's had meaning imposed on it.
I like rural areas.
I think records and music are more appropriate and more respectful of the human soul than the churches are. And more respectful of the needs of humans to communicate with the aspects of themselves that are neglected by language.
Cities are made for enemies to destroy.
It's nice to be able to backtrack and not be embarrassed by the music you used to listen to.
I don't like the idea of being surrounded by hidden things; people you can't see in buildings and cars.
