"Race is a layer of being, but not a culmination."

David Bowers Quotes

"The universe speaks if you will learn to listen."

Colin Bord Quotes

"Allegorical stories of saints battling with giants, monsters and demons may be interpreted as symbolizing the Christians fight against paganism. At Bwlch Rhiwfelen (Denbigh) St Collen fought and killed a cannibal giantess, afterwards washing away the blood-stains in a well later known as Ffynnon Gollen. In Ireland, the tales of saints slaying giant serpents may have the same meaning; alternatively they (or some of them) may refer to early sightings of genuine water monsters. St Barry banished a serpent from a mountain into Lough Lagan (Roscommon), and a holy well sprang up where the saints knee touched the ground."

Feist Quotes

"Music is pretty intimate stuff and I can only work with very few people: Gonzalez being one, Mocky being another and, on a completely different level, Broken Social Scene.
