“It’s SUCH a WEIRD SELF-CONFIDENCE that an ARTIST HAS—to CONCEIVE of this THING that SERVES NO FUNCTION and SAY, ‘I’M GOING to REALLY WORK HARD FOR it and GIVE IT and IT’S JUST GOING to MATTER to PEOPLE.’ YOU REALLY HAVE to BELIEVE it ALL ON YOUR OWN.” —Dan Colen


“I NEVER USED to RESPECT the IMPORTANCE of a HEALTHY LIVELIHOOD. It DIDN’T OCCUR to ME to LIVE HEALTHY. I DIDN’T SEE ANY BENEFIT IN it at ALL. It WAS ALL ABOUT BREAKING, DESTROYING, and BURNING SHIT DOWN. I DIDN’T REALIZE that I WAS BURNING MYSELF DOWN.” —Dan Colen
