"part of the form of rock 'n' roll is having the courage of your convctions as a teenager, and doing stuff that would be outrageous and embarrassing to a lot of people, but constitutes a lot of your appeal to your audience because they like to see people turn themselves inside out in public. and for me, this whole style of dress and the way you look is a means, just like the combination of colors you use in a painting, for communicating. And it's only people who are scared and shy and threatened who find it necdssary to perceive that as a pose."
"I don't feel threatened by anything rock 'n' roll bands do. I'm very much an outsider, shy and lonely, but the essence of bein a rock 'n' roller is that you can create your own world there in spite of what everybody else thingks. and then, hopefully, it creates a world that other people are just as relieved and pleased to become a part of. and putting a hole in your shirt takes courage; it's saying, 'i don't give a fuck if somebody says i'm a jerk; i'm deliberately removing myself from them.' "
"I think ther'es a lot of basis for self-hatred. to transcend something you've first got to fully accept the fact that it exists. i would much rather listen to the music of somebody that hates themself and says it, than to listen to the music of barry manilow. there' san initial thrill of being able to release all this stuff that would have led you to just tear ytourself apart inside before. most punk rockders are very young, and i'm sure there's a certain number of them that will grasp the significance of what they're saying wand will demand enough of themselvs as human beings to go on to finding something else they can affirm. or else they'll die. that's the dilemma i'm facin right now: whether I'll die or whether I'll find something i can affirm. it's gotta be one or the other."
"it's the artist's job to be narcissistic, constantly analyzing and paying attentoin to yourself to see how things affect you."
"so naturally, if you invent yourself, you love yourself. the idea of inventing yourself is creating the most ideal image that you could imagine."
blank generation: i entirely reject your standards for judging my behavior.
"Adolescence is the point in your life where you are inevitably forced by circumstances to face the most crucial questions about life, period. and the extent wotwhich you maintain the attitude that you ahd as a teenager is the extetnt to which you remain alive, as far as i'm concerned. you increase your ability to opearate efficiently in the face o the environment you perceive as you get oldr, but that doesn't mean that the turmoil inside you is lessened any. i can't speak for anybody but myself, but i know that i haven't resolved any of those things."
this is definitely nf, i'm guessing infj.
