"I order the club sandwich all the time, but I'm not even a member, man. I don't know how I get away with it. How'd it start anyway? I like my sandwiches with three pieces of bread. So do I! Well let's form a club then. Alright, but we need more stipulations. Yes we do; instead of cutting the sandwich once, let's cut it again. Yes, four triangles, and we will position them into a circle. In the middle we will dump chips. Or potato salad. Okay. I got a question for ya, how do you feel about frilly toothpicks? I'm for 'em! Well this club is formed; spread the word on menus nationwide. I like my sandwiches with alfalfa sprouts. Well then you're not in the fuckin' club!"...Mitch Hedberg
Here's a take on Todd Rundgren from one of his former bandmates in the Nazz.
When did it become apparent that Todd was moving into a different direction and was becoming disenchanted?
Thom Mooney: It became apparent when I heard the songs that he expected me to obediently record. It became apparent that Todd was becoming disenchanted when we began expressing doubt and actually saying no to him. He treated his friends and partners in the enterprise like we were enemies. It was an awful place to be. The record was ours as well as his and all we wanted was to be equals in the process of making the record that we would all be held responsible for. Play On!

Also, I'm reminded of a post awhile back where Jeff Truzzi mentioned the dickishness of Mike Love. He is also interviewed in this book, and boy does he sound like a dick. Apparently he was responsible for every great thing that the Beach Boys did and never made a mistake in his life. Ugh.
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here--this is the war room.
‘When punk rock ruled over Ulster, nobody ever had more excitement and fun. Between the bombings and shootings, the religious hatred and the settling of old scores, punk gave everybody a chance to LIVE for one glorious burning moment.’

Mare: I have always said things other people only thought...I got laughter and me, too! as reward. Sometimes, though, I felt regret about what I had brought to the surface. Is that my lot in life-to be an instigator?
