The thing about punk shows is that they’re loud. Loud like your first concussion, loud like a crowbar fucking a piano. They have to be loud so the sad, crazy kids who go to them- and I mean all of those words: 1) sad 2) crazy 3) kids- will forget for one fucking minute that when they go home, they will still want to fucking kill themselves, because at home, their lives don’t mean ANYTHING to ANYONE. So the thing about punk shows is that you get all these half-deaf depressed kids, and you get them all in one room when they all hate the same thing: themselves.
How To Get Beat By The Cops. - Neil Hilborn (via damnguido)
Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.
