Quote of the Day

"At my concerts most of the chicks are looking for liberation, they think I'm gonna show 'em how to do it."...





... "Butthe ones right in the front are always the country club bitches, they alwaysare. It's so weird playing to 14 panty girdles. I used to getreally uptight when they turned on the house lights because I thought it wouldcool the show, but I noticed in the past year it doesn't. You turn on the houselights, and if you've got an audience that's a little timid the minute they seeeverybody else standing up and getting goony, they say, what the fuck, andeverybody just stands up and starts getting sweaty. I used to think if theycouldn't see me singularly and watch me turn them on, they wouldn't get turnedon, but now I know if they can see each other get turned on, they're gonna getturned on even more. The fact that I look small and human like I do when thelights are on don't matter one fuckin' bit." – Janis Joplin
