Quote of the Damn Day: Iggy Pop

The facts change and the circumstances get bigger and fancier, but the basic equations are about the same. The big difference now is that I try to reserve my little outbursts for the tape or the live shows. I don't wake up in the morning mad at the world in general, I tend to have enough of my own problems to occupy me in a more balanced way. Life's exciting in that way. I guess if my life were a little more boring, I might be angry all the time at everybody. But as it is, I'm only angry at everybody maybe an hour a day. The rest of the time, I'm angry at somebody specific. I'm really actively pursuing that, 'cause it's cool. It's pretty nice when that happens. Membership has it's privileges.

Iggy is a guy who 'gets it'... and I think that the cool people are the ones who 'get it', whether it is for themselves (as Iggy has done) or whether it is for everybody (Jesus Christ, to expand the point). That is why it is a 'privilege' to be a 'member'.

The Unabomber 'got it'. It just so happened he was an insane cross-dresser who wasn't content to simply sit in his cabin and fellate himself. Que sera... everybody can't be happy all the time...

I aspire to his maturity level. I'm still in the angry all the time stage.
