“I know from experience that you spend your tears on the big hurts, not the little day-to-day jabs." -Star”
Mark Delaney, Pepperland

“In terms of helping me heal my mind and heart, Dr. Artaud is good, but music is better. She's right when she says that I hide behind music. I sometimes let sound get physical, so that it rings in my ears, and vibrates in my chest and drowns out the unhappy voices in my head. Other times, like right now, music helps me respond to my better voices, the ones that give me a squeeze to the shoulders and a gentle push ahead." -Star”
Mark Delaney, Pepperland

“Music is an act of creation. A musician gives life to a song, even if he or she didn't write it. I would say that learning to play someone else's song is different from writing on yourself, a different kind of commitment. Syke would say it's like raising an adopted child" -Star”
