Kurt Quotes

17 Feb

I warned you there would be more. I may even include some commentary on them, EEK!  Yeah, well, here goes.


“Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.”-  This line always makes me smile.

“Dear future generations: Please accept our apologies. We were rolling drunk on petroleum.” – One of my pet peeves shared with Kurt- unabashed, thoughtless greed.

“A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.”- Amen.

“And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”- I believe everyone can use more of this in their lives. Everyone.

“Many people need desperately to receive this message: ‘I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.”  – Again, Amen.

“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.”- A stark example of the emptiness that is consumerism.

Thank you Mr. Vonnegut!

Part of what made Phish so great during the mid-ninties was the audience participation.  Phish played Chess matches vs the crowd.  I witnessed a move at the show in Niagara Falls 12-07-95.  “We” lost game one, but I was at a show during game 2, which we won! (though not at that show)

It was good fun and while they had other hilarious and impressive stunts- jumping on trampolines during “You Enjoy Myself” and other songs and the drummer John Fishman playing a vacuum cleaner that was hooked up to an amp and the coupe de gras, acapella songs to close the show.

Good times indeed.
