Our relationship with reality seems strained.
Oliver “Shiny” Blakemore

If all you have is a hammer … pretty soon everything starts to look like a thumb.

we shoved sub-woofers under trees and into caves and created things that sound like a broken vacuum cleaner chewing on razor blades and called it music.

I’m not sure what kind of music you’re thinking of … Industrial? ‘Techno’? … but there’s a good chance that I’m gonna say “Oi! I resemble that remark!”

I always wonder, what’s the huge hurry to get places? It doesn’t matter when you get there. It’ll be the same thing no matter how long it takes.

The faster you go, the quicker you get there.

The quicker you get there, the more time you can spend with the people/things you went there to see — and the longer you get to spend sitting comfortably as well.

a town that’s every bit as “brought to you by Wal-Mart” as wherever you just left.

That has been my experience of the U.S.

In Europe it used to be different … a unique experience wherever you went. Sadly, it too has become more homogenised — McDonalds is everywhere, both literally and figuratively <sigh>. But it’s still better than the U.S. in that regard … just.

Welcome to the future. We have matching jackets.
