For me, the best thing about being a writer is being able to detach from reality for a few hours a day and have control over a world I want to create. I also enjoy killing people in various ways (only on paper!). It's very cathartic.

Joseph Reid, Takeoff

“Although we could have gone”
Joseph Reid, Takeoff

“Ideally, you want components with a flat frequency/response curve: they apply identical amounts of energy to every sound frequency, so the proper balance between high and low is maintained.”
Joseph Reid, Takeoff
