We don’t have no gimmick - I ain’t no gimmick, man. You see The Clash on stage and they’re all high on some kind of speed. If I want some energy, I just drink some orange juice and go out and rock harder than all of them.

When it gets down to it - talking trade balances here - once we’ve brain-drained all our technology into other countries, once things have evened out, they’re making cars in Bolivia and microwave ovens in Tadzhikistan and selling them here - once our edge in natural resources has been made irrelevant by giant Hong Kong ships and dirigibles that can ship North Dakota all the way to New Zealand for a nickel - once the Invisible Hand has taken away all those historical inequities and smeared them out into a broad global layer of what a Pakistani brickmaker would consider to be prosperity - y’know what?

  • Music
  • Movies
  • Microcode (software)
  • High-speed pizza delivery
