“I knew he believed in something that none of us ever do anymore. He believed in the nastiest word in the world. He believed in KINDNESS. Please tell me you remember kindness. Please tell me you remember kindness and joy, you cool motherfuckers.”
Scott McClanahan, Crapalachia: A Biography of a Place

“I never look at a painting and ask, "Is this painting fictional or non-fictional?" It's just a painting.”
Scott McClanahan, Crapalachia: A Biography of a Place

“I couldn't believe it.

Something wasn't right.

I thought, "Batman smokes cigarettes."

I couldn't believe it. "Batman smokes fucking cigarettes."

I walked away and saw that Batman was just this stupid guy dressed up in a rubber suit, just as afraid as I was, and that I lived in a lost place inside my own heart, where even Batman couldn't help me.”
Scott McClanahan, Hill William
