“People would come and people would go, I realized then, but music would be there until the end of time.”
Len Vlahos, The Scar Boys

“Music I discovered that night, was a sanctuary, a safe place to hide, a place where scars didn't matter, they didn't exist.”
Len Vlahos, The Scar Boys

“I'm not sure where it will lead, but this time I understand that it's not where I end up that matters, but how I get there.”
Len Vlahos, The Scar Boys

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
