As a kid, I said, 'I want to write for movies.' When I finally had that opportunity it was like I was able to exhale. 'Wow, I'm finally doing this for real.'
Why should we change onstage? We're not trying to be something big and fancy, it's just us, doing what we do, we'd like to keep it that way.
Control your life through insanity.
You don't burn out from going too fast. You burn out from going too slow and getting bored.
To live is to die.
Personally, I would say the 'master' of this whole thing is fate... Whoever is on the playing field is fair game, and it's up to them to avoid being used.
Every once in awhile we may fall on our face, but we insist on doing what we wanna do.
We do what we want. We don't care what anyone else thinks.
Just keep going like crazy and look back when it's over. Otherwise you just get confused.
