"Having Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison as inspirations is a bittersweet predicament. Sure, they were fuck-ups but they were evolutionary and influential fuck-ups. Isn't the main purpose we were given life is to make something of who we are and leave behind a piece of ourselves that will change the course of history for generations to come? When looking back on Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison's lives one must face this question: Would you rather live a short, influential, life that continues inspiring for generations to come life or a long, content, average life? My answer to this question for right now is the short influential one. I would rather live 27 short, passionate years than 90 alright ones. Jim Morrison never really had any musical backround and/or talent but yet he turned out to be one of the greatest song writers of our time. Maybe that could possibly happen to me. Maybe I could become extremely insired by soemthing and write down the deepest lyrics imaginable. I could be the lead singer of a band that is a mix between The Doors, The Ramones, and Nirvana. I wouldn't want to be one of those shit, girl bands that has one hit like The Donnas. "Woo! We're girls and we're stirring up the entertainment business." No, not for me. I want to create a whole new wave of music like Kurt Cobain did. He created Grunge. By just simply being himself he threw a large pebble and created ripples in the pond of music that will continue to keep rippling throughout time. I know that pretty much every teenager believes that they are "different" from everyone else. But that said, I AM DIFFERENT. I don't fear death, I embrace life. "

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
- Jim Morrison
