We’ve been made the enemies of lawyers and judges our tax dol­lars sup­port, and it’s time we turned around and said, “fuck you.” – Marc Emery launches his bid to le­gal­ize pot This is an emer­gency; changes in me­dia com­pe­ti­tion, tech­nol­ogy and pornog­ra­phy have es­ca­lated the beauty myth to such a lethal rate that we can’t triv­i­al­ize the is­sues any more. – Naomi Wolf, au­thor of The Beauty Myth The real rea­sons peo­ple are up­set is that there are same-sex scenes, and Madonna and the other women in the video are in con­trol of their sex­u­al­ity – and that re­ally in­ter­rupts the sta­tus quo. – Sue Golding of Bud­dies in Bad Times Theatre on the ban­ning of the Madonna video Jus­tify My Love Our songs are very emo­tional. They aren’t tem­pered by so­phis­ti­ca­tion or irony or sar­casm or any of th­ese hu­mour tools some re­ally good song­writ­ers are able to use. – Indigo Girls’ Emily Saliers Record com­pa­nies are a lot like the Wiz­ard Of Oz. From the out­side, they look so im­pres­sive. But once you get in­side, you re­al­ize it's all just some id­iot stand­ing be­hind a cur­tain pulling levers. Depend­ing on which one he pulls, he can ei­ther help you or make you look like a fool. – Smash­ing Pump­kins mega­lo­ma­niac Billy Cor­gan hates record la­bel at­ten­tion
