"Generally, cats won’t “speak” on command, though I did find that they will sometimes meow in response to my voice, as if there was a conversation taking place. They also become very vocal around meal times, but those meows tended to have very little tonal variation, so using food as a way to coax sounds out of them wasn’t the way to go."
"People feel excluded by science and debates about science, they use laptops, they fly in planes, use appliances in the home and they don’t know what’s behind this technology. That is a problem, as it turns people into the slaves of our technology. The less people know the more they are likely to be manipulated ."

"Punk in the hands of the showbiz world is an absolutely pointless farce. It means nothing. Fine, rock and roll can be fun, you can have a good night out, but what’s that got to do with punk? All these reformed punk bands and major label acts who like to think of themselves as punk are okay if you want a laugh and a good old jump around, but it’s nonsense to imagine that it’s anything to do with what punk was really about. Punk was a way of life, not a pop fad."

"Recording or mixing set ups with a desk in front of the listener cause midrange or presence dips that engineers will tend to “compensate” for with unnecessary midrange boosts. Better to drop the height of the desk by at least a foot or move the controls off to the side so they don’t interfere with what the speakers are trying to tell you."
