I was 12 going on 13 the first time I saw a dead human being. It happened in the summer of 1959-a long time ago, but only if you measure in terms of years. I was living in a small town in Oregon called Castle Rock. There were only twelve hundred and eighty-one people. But to me, it was the whole world. 

…Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do

“Prepare to hear of occurrences which are usually deemed marvelous. Were we among the tamer scenes of nature, I might fear to encounter your unbelief, perhaps your ridicule; but many things will appear possible in these wild and mysterious regions, which would provoke the laughter of those unacquainted with the ever-varied powers of nature…” - Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, p. 21

"Taxi was from Charleston, South Carolina—a confused, beautiful debutante who’d split with her family and come to New York. She had a poignantly vacant, vulnerable quality that made her a reflection of everybody’s private fantasies. Taxi could be anything you wanted her to be—a little girl, a woman, intelligent, dumb, rich, poor—anything. She was a wonderful, beautiful blank. The mystique to end all mystiques."
From ‘The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B & Back Again)’

 ”A pervasive impotence defines the culture of postwar Japan, where everything is peaceful, tranquil, lukewarm. Our general removal from world politics and distorted dependence on the United States leaves us in a circumscribed, closed-in system, inhabiting an Orwellian, science-fiction realm,”

Takashi Murakami (from Little Boy: The Arts of Japan’s Exploding Subculture)
