Quote by Michael Stipe
So, we just kind of created our own thing and that's part of the beauty of Athens: is that it's so off the map and there's no way you could ever be the East Village or an L.A. scene or a San Francisco scene, that it just became its own thing.
This quote highlights the unique and independent nature of Athens as a creative hub. It emphasizes that Athens, unlike other established artistic scenes, has managed to thrive by cultivating its own distinct identity. The city's isolation from mainstream cultural centers encourages local artists to experiment and develop their own artistic expressions, resulting in a community that is not easily compared to other well-known scenes such as the East Village in NYC or San Francisco. The quote celebrates the organic growth and individuality of Athens' artistic community.
I first fell in love with music when I was a little boy. When I first heard music, I felt the beauty in it. Then, being able to tap along on a table top and box was great, but my favorite thing to do was to watch records spin. I would almost get hypnotized by it. These things are what drew me in initially.
