“That’s the problem with home: even if I hate it, it’s still home. We’re wired for familiarity. It’s a design flaw.”
Tyler Hellard, Searching for Terry Punchout

“Hearing all this is like my drive through downtown Pennington: simultaneously familiar and not. So-and-so is working here now. Such-and-such got a new truck. Lives were lived in my absence. This world kept spinning, even without me in it.”
Tyler Hellard, Searching for Terry Punchout

“I didn’t think about it. Everyone else took care of the funeral, so I just figured lawyers sorted it out, or something, I guess.” The feeling you get when you find out somebody who has always let you down has actually done something really substantial for you is difficult to describe. It’s sort of like the debilitating humiliation I’m used to feeling, except instead of wishing to instantly disappear from existence, I’m wishing a terribly painful and drawn-out death for myself. I deserve it and then some.”
Tyler Hellard, Searching for Terry Punchout

“Irving Berlin said, "Popular music is popular because a lot of people like it." That doesn't mean it's good or bad—that's the equivalent of arguing the merits of hotdogs versus hamburgers. What the hell difference does it make?”
Lester Bangs, Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung
