“I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don’t quite know how to explain it but it’s there. These can’t be the only notes in the world, there’s got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys.”

“Mother Nature will wipe out most of civilization, when she’s decided she’s had enough…When Mother Nature starts to feel a little sick, and all her oil is gone and you’re poisoning her old body with nuclear waste, then she’s going to decide she feels restless and shift a little bit, and it’s going to be all over. She’ll only shift for a moment, but she’ll do her little number. It will be the end for most people, especially those who are ill-prepared“.
